Tea Time And Desserts In Sacramento

DIAMONDS ARE GIRLS' BEST FRIENDS?  Nay for me... my best food buddy is still DESSERTS!  Alright, I admit it... I love diamonds too, (who doesn't?) but I just got to be realistic and not materialistic...LOL.. I CANNOT afford to buy diamonds, so I spend my money on desserts, they have something in common... both starts with a "D" and both are "rich" their own different ways. Diamonds make you look rich, Desserts make me look rich too... at least SIDEWAYS!  LOL....

Indeed I am growing sideways, my face is rounder and my pants are "tighter" than before.  Why?  Because I went to Leatherby's, the best ice cream in town ... for the 7th time!  I told my sisters, why not we order the senior scoops for this round?  Senior Banana Split consists of 3 scoops of ice cream whereas the normal Banana Split consists of six scoops with lots of fudge, cream and fruits.  We can share the senior ice cream among the three of us... I said.  They agreed and when the waiter came, we asked for senior ice cream and he replied, "Anyone of you turn 65 yet?"  Oh dear...... forget it!
And thus.. the normal Banana Split with 6 scoops...$12...
Our favourite Crab Sandwich... $14
That is for our tea-time....
I guess I have to wait for a couple more years to get my senior order.... 
On another day, we went to the Cheesecake Factory...
It was my first time there....
Bread was on the house as usual...
They came with 4 pieces of butter.....
We wanted something light to share....
Chicken Tacos with salsa and avocado sauce.. $4.95
A Club Sandwich... *not sure of price*
Yes, to be shared too....
That was not all....
We could not resist their display of cakes at the counter...
Had a hard time choosing what I wanted...
Ended up with this Red Velvet White Chocolate Cheesecake... $7.95
And that was what I meant... 
Give me desserts and I am very happy...
They are my best friend indeed!

  1. Oh my!!! That banana split sure looks like a killer! Enough for at least half a dozen people to share.

  2. Claire, no one would believe you are a senior; you look like a girl! And no one would believe you eat so many desserts, you remain so slim! The food at Leatherby's looks so good! We have a Cheesecake Factory nearby.

  4. Dessert is my thing too! Ah all of you are still young, not qualified for senior ice cream yet, hah! If I live there, I will eat desserts until I have to exercise nonstop or else be unable to move due to my sheer bulk!

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
