My 25 Counties Journey

A DAY BEFORE OUR DEPARTURE FROM SAN FRANCISCO, my BIL handed me two pieces of paper and told me that I would be needing them when I reach home. hahahaha... He really has a good sense of humour! He knows that I own a blog and I write a lot of crazy stuff there and many times, I ended up giving wrong information too... hahahaha...

Well, what would one expect from a human being absent minded like me?  Or should I say... a poor memory?  So.... in order to set things right, he took the trouble to make photostat a map out, outlined it with green pen and then write down all the counties that he had taken me!  Isn't that nice!!  *To be on the safe side so that I won't be giving out wrong and inaccurate information.. that's me!

Okay, let me see... where have I actually been to....

And the arrows showed that I have been to Nevada and Arizona too!  
Isn't my BIL meticulous!
Just look at that... 25 COUNTIES!
Did we really pass through all those small towns?
Maybe most of the time, I was half asleep, I guess... hahahaa...
No wonder whenever we passed through some towns, I got jerked up from the "driver" and after a mumble from me...."Yes, ok...." I was back to dreamland.... ZZZzzzz....
Anyway, whatever it takes, I really appreciate all their thoughts for giving us such a meaningful kind of vacation..... Miss them much!!  Hopefully will see them REAL soon!!

  3. Your BIL is such an organised guy, very systematic...no cincai cincai kind of person.

    I envy you - so much energy plus you have the chance to travel. I'd usually choose to laze around and relax in the hotel room though, I'm so lazy...and will venture out only when it is time to eat. :D

  11. Your BIL is a very thoughtful person too. And he took the trouble to do it for you. You are so blessed! So when is your next destination! So fun to travel with you through your posting!

  12. What an interesting way to note the counties you have left your footprints. My friend does the same for Thailand as he wants to cover all the "Jangwats" which are like province.
    I never thought of this good counties idea while there except that I only counted the number of states in US.

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL...
