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 fortune, looking for a pot of gold... Things got bad and things got worse, I guess you know the tune... Oh Lord, stuck in Lodi again..... "  Anyone remembers this song?  :)

Reanaclaire's many poses before setting out on the road..... 
Hi Fren!!
Jom!!  Let's Go!
The long and winding road....
That leads me to your door.... 
Will never disappear.....
I've seen that road before...
It always lead me here....
Lead me to your door....
The wild and windy night, that the rain washed away....
Has left a pool of tears, crying for the day.....
Why leave me standing here.... Lead me to your door.....
Sorry, sorry, I was being carried away by this song...
The Long and Winding Road.....
Pear Trees.... everywhere along the road....
Starting to bloom.....
Taking a Break along the way...... 
Half mission accomplished....

  6. I remember that last time you were in the States, you went on a very long trip here, there and everywhere. I guess there are still a lot of places you have not been to, worth checking out. Have fun!

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...
