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 to desserts! LOL...
Before setting off the journey, I "fooled" around again... 
Setting out in the car... for breakfast, shopping and desserts...
At Fosters Freeze....
Taken against the sun...
This is the best, so it seems.. 
Vanilla Ice Cream!!
Not at all sweet.... hmmmm.... 
So everyone can eat....slurp..lick..bite... 
After our belly are full, our journey continued on.... 
Taken from our moving car... 
Passing through lots of vineyards... all the way to our resort....
All over on the main road and up the hills....
Beautiful spring green green grass of home....
Sonoma....


*one disadvantage though... no wifi at the condo...
no wifi means no oxygen*

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....

Cookies For Chinese New Year 2022 In San Jose

MISSING IN BLOGGING AGAIN.... this has become a norm now ever since I arrived to this continental... LOL... Now I understand the word of Full Commitment when it comes to taking care of baby... seriously, I have to be fully commited and occupied by this little cheeky fella who is now going to be his 10th month soon.  Wow... time flies, when I first came, he was just slightly over four months... that being said, it is soon time fo rme to pack my bags and leave.  LOL... My 6 months being a babysitter is soon over... and did I say I can hardly wait?  NO, NO... I love my job here and I am going to miss my baby tremendously!  I only don't miss his cries!  LOL...  OK, by the time I write this post, Chinese New Year is over, it is now the 4th day of CNY.  Two days before the Lunar New Year, my daughter-in-law and I cooperated fully and baked a few types of cookies.  Looking back at these pictures, I dare say that we did a good job... not on the cookies but at least we had a great time bond

Buffet Lunch At Baccanal Caesar Palace Hotel, Las Vegas

BUFFET LUNCH... We made reservation for a nice buffet a week before we came to Las Vegas, the buffet is one of its kind in Caesar Palace, Baccanal is the name of the restaurant.  My kids were saying that we must have at least one good and memorable meal while here in Las Vegas and they chose the seafood buffet.  It cost around $90 per pax and being Asians, sure we would be attracted to just seafood!  Alaska Crabs... hairy crabs....lobster claws..  clams etc etc...  Oh, I did not take much photos on what we ate, just too busy stuffing in and to take out the camera with dirty hands and all.  LOL.... Just the initial stage and after that, it was all about eating and eating... oh, by the way, they only allowed 90 minutes in the restaurant, but I don't think they timed anyone... LOL.. Anyway, we took that amount of time to finish our food, sipping free champayne and mocktail too.  What a scrumptious meal... from mains to desserts, I think we only had one meal done for that day itself...
