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!

  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!

Three Hours City Tour At Ensenada, Mexico

A THREE HOURS CITY TOUR when we embarked in Mexico on the second morning.   My sister booked the three hours city tour in Ensenada, Mexico, a van came to pick us up from the port.  Ensenada is the border of Mexico and it reminds me of Hatyai, a border town too between Malaysia and Thailand.  We were taken to a shopping area where we must haggle for the goods.  LOL.. Yes, something common in my own country... Anyway, we did not buy anything for ourselves... just a wooden handmade truck for my grandson which cost $8usd.   Nothing much to shout about on this three hours excursion, I was so sleepy on the way back to the ship that I dozed off and only awaken when we were driven through the town.  All in all, I just wanted to step onto Mexican soil and I would give this a miss if I were to go on this Mexico cruise again.  LOL... At the open area shopping walking towards the Blowhole... This is La Bufadora Blowhole, an amazing natural marine geyser that is capable of shooting water over 60 fe

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....

Phil's Fish Market And Eatery, Moss Landing

DAY TRIP TO MOSS LANDING...  I did not know what to expect since I had not been there before.  We took an hour plus drive to this seafood place, it is an open air restaurant whereby you can dine by the sea or inside.  We chose the latter, since it was quite windy in the open air.  With a baby kid, it is best to have some warmth inside the restaurant. Yes, there was already a queue by the time we reached there, it was actually between lunch and dinner and yet, patrons were ready to have their meal.  Though the queue looked long, we could get a place within 10 minutes or so.   Almost the same picture but someone was looking at me when I took these...  Almost reaching the finishing line to enter ... Clam Chowder to start off...  Cioppino... A combination of seafood... Mussels, prawns, crabs, clams...  Eat what the fishermen eat... Dip the bread in the sauce... Yes, I like this... Fried chicken chunks...  And I still prefer the Cioppino compared to this....  Baby enjoying his own food befo
