Shopping At Livermore And Dinner At Oakland

ON THE WAY TO SAN FRANCISCO, we stopped at Livermore Outlet Stores..  This is the first time I visited this outlet and I am very impressed.  So many stores to go in and out and yet so little time!  I don't know it is a good thing or not, a blessing in disguise?  Cos within 2 hours, I have spent quite a bit at just two stores... Abercrombie and Hollister (2 in 1) and Fossil.  We did not even have time to look into other stores, oh my goodness.... and time was so limited, just two hours and that was it... we have to proceed to San Francisco and it was almost 5pm by then.

On the way back to Sacramento, we had our dinner at Oakland and by the time we reached home, it was almost 10pm... thus the late post such as this.... LOL...
Just managed to conquer two stores only...
What a defeat or perhaps it is a blessing in disguise.. 
LOL...
One of the watches I could not resist buying...
In a recent search, I came across Not Just Deals coupons & deals
They offer great discount coupons! 
If I have known earlier, I would have purchased more goods at a discounted price!
Asian Pearl... food was served in Big Portions.... 
Marpoh Beancurd...
I like this Peking Ribs... sweet and tasty!
Chicken with ginger.....
Chow Mein...
Happy Diners... 
Oh the bill came to around $60... 
More expensive than in Sacarmento no doubt...
but then... we are tourists after all....

  6. I would be broke and bankrupt if I still live in US today. They always have very big and attractive shopping malls with SALE everyday & everywhere. If you go to places like Upstate New York and Washington DC areas, you will go wild & scream at all the big mart stores!

    Why no pixs of Oakland? I have lived there for one month before.

  8. Hi Claire! You and I both love to shop so much!I was wishing I could see some of your purchases, and there was the beautiful Fossil watch! I love it, and it will match anything! Easy to read the time, too! I did not think there is a store I haven't been in, but I have never heard of Livermore. I love that statue behind you! It seems to be showing how kids can go on adventures by reading?

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...
