10 Course Dinner At Well Season Seafood Restaurant, Saramento

CHINESE DINNER... The next day Aaron would be flying back to Scotland... and my sister arranged for a sit-down dinner at a Chinese Restaurant in Elk Grove for the 10 of us.  According to my sister, the Well Season Seafood Restaurant was opened not too long ago, she had not tried the food there before... the menu seems "endless"... .  Since there were ten of us, she opted for a eleven course dinner at around $200 inclusive of beer and an extra dish. Our early dinner started at 6.30pm..... everyone seemed to be very punctual... no Malaysian time anyway.. LOL.. and after settling down for a couple of minutes, our food were served... We were more or less the first customers of the day....  My sister prefers early dinner, easier to digest to avoid gaining weight... LOL.... First dish.... soup as appetizer... I forgot what soup it was... actually.. Beancurd or something....  But I remember taking two rounds of it...  Our first dish... Cold platter... Bu

Old Town Sacramento And Candy Barrel

FROM THE STATE CAPITOL, we adjourned to Old Town, Sacramento... Since it was a weekday, there were not many tourists but come weekends, the place will be filled with people.  During the summer and weekends, there are horse drawn carriage rides and street performers dressed in garb and strumming guitars... I remember during my previous visit a couple of years ago, there was some kind of performance on the street too. It was very quiet on a weekday.....  Carriage ride for the tourists...  No, we did not get into one...  Looks very cowboy-ish... minus the cars, that is...  Railroad museum along the river bank...   A historic train pulled by vintage diesel locomotives from the museum’s collection. And from here, we walked to the stores.... Along the planks sideway....  To a famous store...  SALT WATER TAFFY CANDIES STORE!! Over 70 flavors including Banana, Carmel Apple, Buttered Popcorn, Peanut Butter,  Guava & Mango, oh.. that is all I ca

Looking Good With Hair Extensions

In this post I am going to talk about Hair.... starting with myself, I notice that my hair grows fast.  In less than a month, I could see half an inch or one centimeter longer.  How do I know the length?  Easy, the reason is when new hair comes out, they are white in colour!  Yes, no joke... according to my hair stylist, my whole head of hair has become grey!  If not for the hair dyes, I have long silver hair in no time.  Sounds kind of scary but true... I need to don wigs on my head cos dyeing the hair too regularly is not a welcoming thought.   So what kind of wigs do I need?  I need to get more information about wigs, hair extensions and so forth.  Checking online is pretty easy, there are many websites offering easy ways of donning a wig or putting on human hair weave .  F or those who are regular users of hair extensions, they would have by now familiarized themselves with the different types of hair extensions available in the marketplace. First, there are synthetic hair a
