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?

An Evening Dinner At Chef Chew Kitchen, Petaling Jaya

BACK TO SG. BULOH for a couple of days.... Come evening, we went for dinner at Chef Chew Kitchen in Seksyen 19, Petaling Jaya.  Since it was my first time there, I did not know what to expect except to sit back, relax and eat.  LOL... It is a one shop lot restaurant so tables are very limited.  Reservation was made at 6pm to be on the safe side, to avoid crowds and waiting for food was very minimized at this time of the day.  For the seven of us, these dishes were served on the table... Thumbs up even before the dinner...  And soon these are served...  Claypot braised ribs...  Their signature dish... Fish Maw...  First time eating fish maw which is whitish in colour...  Black Beancurd with Pumpkin sauce... Hey, this restaurant indeed serves new to me! This must be Sweet Sauce Chicken... For the American... Cos we Asians like Steamed Chicken like this!  LOL...  And the star dish of the dinner is this...  Freshly steamed and succulent prawns

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

Night Market Along Lee Garden Plaza Hotel, Hatyai

BY THE TIME WE REACHED THE HOTEL, it was almost dark. This time round, we took a longer rest in the hotel... my girl might not need it but I certainly did!  After recharging around 80% of my body strength, we were ready to explore the streets again. Our hotel is really a strategic spot for us tourists.  The street vendors were all ready to boost their sales in front, at the side and along the whole stretch of street where we stayed.  Left, right, front... the place was filled with people and tourists like us... I could hear some of them speaking my dialect, we felt kind of at home instead of being tourists.... Besides the street vendors in front of the hotel, there was a night market just five minutes walking distance away from our hotel, Lee Garden Plaza.... Maybe they only opened during the weekends?  I am not sure about that.. .anyway, we were kind of excited to see all the bright lights along the street.... Come... Let's Go! We started from the beginning of the str
