Country Roads, Take Me Home

WOKE UP EARLY IN THE MORNING and had our breakfast at Star Dust Casino restaurant, just five minutes drive away from our hotel, Silver Legacy.  The breakfast meal is only around $4.99 per person and it comes in a complete set... each of us took one set though I am surprised at myself that I could finish one whole meal by myself!!  American Breakfast... never before I ate such a Big Meal... Since there were six of us, they gave us a private room...

After our heavy breakfast, we went for a day trip to Virginia City, an old cowboy town famous for its gold mine those days.... and on the way, the song Country Roads came to my mind....Almost heaven, West Virginia, Blue Ridge Mountains.. Shenandoah River.....
Our all time American Breakfast.... 
My order is the first top left... Nice?
And our journey started... from highway to the mountains...
Passing residential houses on the way....
And going UP and UP....
Very high UP in fact....
Taken from the moving car...
And we stopped half way to breathe in the scenery....
We followed the cyclist down the steps.... 
Going to the edge of the mountain....
To capture this scene from the top...
The man who built this.... 
Dr. D.M. Geiger.... 
I have to be very careful though.... cannot afford to slip....
Yes, I need some assistance to go up the steps....to the very top!
Blue Ridge Mountains..
The wind was really strong...
\
That was the highest I could go.... 
The wind was heard howling... 
And I quickly went down the steps before I get blown away...
If Not for the heavy American Breakfast, I Might be blown...
LOL....

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...
