Journey To Sonoma

SET OUT ON THE ROAD AGAIN, this time to Sonoma! A place I have never been though I heard of it numerous times.  It was a two hours drive from home and on the way, we stopped at Vacaville for breakfast at Wendy's.  We quickly grabbed a bite, cod fish burger and we were all set again... to go shopping the at the Outlet stores in Vacaville!  Though we were only given half an hour, we did not mind, just one shop we wanted to enter, that is the Fossil outlet.  I think we spent more than half an hour inside, he came looking for us... LOL... and our journey continued.... Somehow we managed to purchase a few things, just at Fossil... I wonder how many hours we would take if we were to walk the whole area!  Ladiessssss..... We made another stop again.. this time the driver wanted us to try the Best ice cream he has ever eaten... Frozen Freeze.... yes, though it was still freezing outside, all of us wanted to get one to try.. a medium one too!  There is no such word as FAT when it comes t

Sirloin Steak At Texas Roadhouse, Sacramento

OUR DAY TRIP ENDED AROUND 4.00PM... We decided to go for our early dinner at Texas Roadhouse, they are offering $13.99 for a special meal from 4pm till 6pm.  Not wanting to miss the offer, we were one of the early birds who catch the early worms.  I love going to this Texas Roadhouse, I love their juicy and succulent grilled steak.  On top of that, there are two unlimited appetizers, groundnuts and buns are served endlessly.... and what is free and nice attracts me!  LOL... Parking was easily accessible because we were the early diners.... Come, let's go in! Hey, seems like we were not the early ones.... Fresh and nice...  The offer banner behind her.... how not to resist... Nice cowboyish ambience... Taken from my angle where I was sitting... Limitless Hot Fresh Buns...  so fresh that I ate three at one go! This is my order...  8oz sirloin steak, shrimps and two side orders..... My sisters' servings... And this.... A good deal

Visit To Locke And Rio Vista

THERE IS ONE REASON why we were taken to this river drive... My BIL wanted us to visit a place called Locke, a surname which is similar as to my mother's, my grandfather's,my great-grandfather and the list goes on.  I was also curious why this small place was named Locke in the middle of California... and now I know why.... Locke was founded in 1915 after a fire broke out in the Chinese section of nearby Walnut Grove. The Chinese who lived in that area decided that it was time to establish a town of their own. A committee of Chinese merchants, led  by Lee Bing, Chan Hing Sai, Tom Wai, Chan Dai Kee, Ng So Hat, Chan Wai Lum, Chow Hou Bun, and Suen Dat Suin was formed . They approached land owner George Locke and inquired if they could build on his land. An agreement was reached. The town was laid out by Chinese architects and industrious building ensued. The founding of Lockeport, later 'Locke', was a reality. By 1920 Locke stood essentially as you see it now. Leve

The Long And Winding Road Trip

ONE FINE MORNING, WE WOKE TO A CLEAR BLUE SKY....  the guests in Sacramento were looking forward to a river drive and we passed by a few towns and cities.  Before leaving the house, I had a crazy time doing some "modeling" no one in Malaysia expected me to... LOL...  The moment the pictures were being taken, the sky turned cloudy... oh dear, hope the rain would not start otherwise our spirits would be dampened. :) Our road trip started from Sacramento to Freeport, Hood, Courtland, Locke, Walnut Grove, Ryde and further down south to Rio Vista, then passing through Lodi, Galt and back to Sacramento.  Interesting?  How did I manage to remember all these names?  Now I am getting smarter, I took a picture of the map on the way so that I can remember!  On the way, we sang songs... especially Lodi pronounced or "Lor Dai" and there is this song by CCR and we started to sing this when we passed Lodi... . Just about a year ago, I set out on the road... seeking my fame and f
