Reunion Dinner At Sacramento

MISSING MALAYSIAN FOOD? No, not at all when we have homecooked food like these every now and then.  With help from one another, we managed to whisk up a meal that make us drool upon finishing. LOL... At least I do! On this special evening, we had a very scrumptious meal, this time the whole meal was prepared by ONLY one member of the family.  She did not follow us out for sightseeing, staying back to prepare and cook for dinner.... so very nice of her!!  This is what I call Caring is Not only Sharing, it is about sacrificing too.  LOL...  When the rest of us came back from our day's trip, our dinner was almost done.  The moment we entered the house, the aroma filled our nostrils and we got hungry almost Immediately.  Wasting no time, we quickly set up the table to start digging on the scrumptious meal... Our Cook of the House... Tean's Curry Chicken! Everyone loves this Malaysian dish!! Spring rolls made from minced meat and prawns... Very crispy! Baked

5 De Mayo At El Novillero Restaurant

IT WAS ON A VERY SPECIAL DAY WHEN WE VISITED  THIS MEXICAN RESTAURANT.. 5 DE MAYO, so it is called... 5th of May is a very special day for the Mexicans.  Cinco de Mayo means Fifth of May, an annual celebration held on this day, to commemorate the Mexican Army's unlikely victory over French forces at the Battle of Puebla on May 5 1862, according to Wikipedia. We went for our lunch at El Novillero Restaurant, known as one of the best Mexican restaurants here in Sacramento.  Never knowing what to expect, I was fascinated with the ambience of the place, it looks so Mexican and Spanish upon entering.  We waited for a good 15 minutes before we could be seated, there was even a wedding taking place inside the restaurant... A very nice experience indeed. The history of the restaurant... At the reception while waiting to be seated... From the place where we were seated... Celebration going on... Okay...what to order? All looks foreign to me.... I think I will just

These Issues Are of Utmost Importance When Hiring Employees

Even businesses that already have staff need to review their procedures and practices to ensure they're still doing everything they should be. The goals need to be to make the most of the employees, keep them happy in their work, and make sure they're meeting the business's expectations. Employers need to keep a close eye on employees to ensure that not only are the employees doing their job but that they're fulfilling their role as an employer too.

Tasty Package At Rice Bowl Restaurant

WE ARE REALLY TYPICAL CHINESE... Even in Sacramento, we look high and low for at Asian food, that is our first priority.  My sister knows where to get nice and reasonable prices meals and one of the regulars that we love to go is the Rice Bowl Restaurant.  My brother-in-law and his son do not really mind having Chinese food with us once awhile but not all the time.  But most times they do not follow us out and needless to say, we will definitely go for familiar dishes that remind us of home sweet home in Malaysia... LOL... Rice Bowl Restaurant has family dinners that range from $26 for three dishes and so on.  Since there are seven of us, we ordered two sets of $26-for-3-dishes and that means, six dishes for $52... Good package, right?  From the menu which consist of endless dishes, we really had a hard time choosing the 6 dishes... everything seems to look good and attractive... LOL... Creamy prawns with honey walnuts.... Variety of Greens... Clams with black beans...
