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 can recollect... 
Just choose your pick!
LOL..

  3. The Old Town really looks like going back in time. Do the candies taste nicer than the candies here?

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL... 

A Short Stay At Fatima Hospital

TWELVE DAYS SINCE my last post.... I was admitted to the hospital last week for heart palpitations and was under observation for two nights.... Thank God all is well now....  And it is still all about food... this time from the hospital... LOL...  For breakfast 2 slices of bread... oats and milo.... I opted for porridge during one lunch.... And for dinner....  Wanton noodles for breakfast before I was discharged.... This was attached to my body to monitor the palpitations....  And the doctor whom I have chosen without recommendations... I saw the hospital profiles on the doctors  And I chose him because of his cheerful profile picture.... Yes, indeed he is what he looks... And I feel better after that... LOL... 

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte
