Graduation At Academy Of Art University, San Francisco

WITH THIS PICTURE, I THEE NOT WED...
no, I did not get married as some of you have commented...
LOL...


IT WAS INDEED A VERY MEMORABLE DAY AND EVENT FOR ME AND MY FAMILY MEMBERS on that special Thursday when we gathered together to celebrate my niece's graduation at the Civic Center in San Francisco.  I still remember the day in August 2012 when we flew over to SF to register her at the Arts Academy.  Nearly five years have passed and now we are here again to celebrate this special event with her.... I can feel the pride beaming on the graduates' faces, their families and friends who came to witness and cheers for their love ones as they walked along the aisle and onto the stage to receive their honour....

The convocation started at 3pm sharp and ended around 5pm... During these moments, we shared the parents' joy and happiness and we really treasure such bonding together... As for the aftermath, we had a ravishing dinner at a Korean BBQ restaurant somewhere, I could not recall the name, all I know is that reservation was made days earlier and we had to turn up at 6.15pm... :)  After our grilling and BBQ dinner, we left San Francisco and reached Sacramento around 11pm... and a blissful sleep came almost immediately when all was cleansed and done...
Parked our car nearby and walked to the Civic Autditorium... 
Nice blue skies on this beautiful day....
Inside the Auditorium...
We were seated upstairs...
Here we are!!
Started with a some introduction and speeches....
And the proud moments came hereafter...
And the Aftermath...
The celebration....
And the Happy Poses...
Before and After...
Well done, Niece....
Thankful to be here together as one family....
And a Grilling Time soon after....
All The Best to your Future Undertakings and God Bless!!

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....

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL...
