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?

Our Orders From Afghanistan, Spanish And Australia

My Final post on the Food Festival in the Victoria Market on Wednesday night.... The atmosphere at the market was "enhanced" by the cheerful songs and music by a group band... It was indeed a merry evening filled with music-licous folk songs in the air... . Ok, how to find four seats in this crowd.... hmmmm....... Somehow we managed to... and these were what my boys brought back to our table.... Mexican rice with oysters... or is it Spanish rice?   Both are the same, I guess... LOL.... Afghanistan Food.... chunks of chicken meat with naan.... Brazilian food.... don't ask me what it is.... I just ate what was on the table....  But I am amazed by this giant burger....  ..... and what burger is this? They told me it is Crocodile Tail Burger! Meat from the crocodile tail?  Is it just a name or what... I really don't know... Took a few bites of it... and I am full!! Well, these were the food we

My Failed Project In Baking Mini Egg Cakes

FAILED THIS TIME..... I don't know why, I follow exactly the ingredients and the method written in her website but it was not successful.  Something went wrong somewhere but I don't think I want to try it again.  This recipe is called Mini Egg Cake which is supposed to be soft, airy, light sponge cake but the way I made them, they turned out hard and crusty cake.   If I try again one day, I will half the portion... cos I like to eat these traditional egg cakes.... The Ingredients...  No point putting the recipe here since I failed..  LOL...  The portions of this recipe....  It looked very promising when I put them into the oven.... Even when they were in the baking process... they look good, aren't they? LOL...  I was so happy just by looking at the mini egg cakes in the tray....  And after they were let out... my heart sank....  The minute I took them out from the tray, I knew... Hard at the top...  Tak Jadi = Failed.... Now come to t

Home Cooked Dishes

NOT MUCH HAPPENING... and lazy too.... My neighbour gave me half pumpkin and I have been keeping it for a couple of days before I finally decide what to do with it.  I cook it into small chunks and sauteed it with minced meat, okra and basil leaves.  Yes, it would be great to put in some small cilipadi but unfortunately, I did not find any in my fridge.  Steamed a bowl of rice and that was meal for dinner.... One dish meal....  Pumpkin reminds me of sweet potatoes...sweet after cooking... Another dinner meal consist of Sambal Fish, black pepper met and a hard boiled egg  I only boiled the egg, the other two dishes were "sponsored" by my neighbour... LOL...
