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?

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL... 
Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch here in …

Caring And Sharing At Limestone, Regal Lodge, Ipoh

IMPROMPTU GATHERING.... Nothing was planned beforehand, it was only at the last minute that we received call to have lunch at Limestone Cafe, inside Regal Lodge.  It was my first time there to have set lunch.  The menu prices were reasonable, around RM15.90 for the main dish, RM3 for a bowl of soup and RM2 for ice cream.  Other than that, coffee, tea and soft drinks are free.  
We were there not so much for the food but for the ambiance... we practically had the whole cafe to ourselves during that lunch hour.  Only one or two tables were occupied and we spent more than two hours there since it was a Friday long hour lunch for my working colleagues.  After a few months absence from me, it was wonderful to catch up with my ex-colleagues again!  
I was super hungry by lunch time and I felt like eating almost anything in the menu. We ended up ordering one main dish each and then sharing them with one another so that we could taste a bit of this and that..... 
I felt like eating Aglio Oli…

Famous Wanton Mee At New Hoong Kee, Bandar Sri Damansara

BREAKFAST FEAST..  Best meal of the day is always my first meal because I know I am able to tuck in as much as my stomach can accept.  I eat a lot in the mornings and then slowly dwindle by the end of the day.  As the saying goes, eat like a king in the morning and like a pauper in the evenings.  This is what I normally do nowadays, not because I wanted to, but it is my own body system that tune me this way.  Though I deny I am old but the body says otherwise... LOL...

On this morning, we went to New Hoong Kee in Bandar Sri Damansara, my sibling said this is currently his favourite place.  And after trying, I know why.... the food we ordered, all turned out good and tasty, even the curry reminded me of my good old days!
Managed to catch the name otherwise I wouldn't be able to tell this story now...  My type of curry... I can go without the chicken... Just the other ingredients will do fine for me.. I like the way they cook this curry... Heard the BBQ pork is tasty too... melt in …
