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?

Mini Birthday Celebration At August Healing, Ipoh

GETTING HEALED AGAIN... this time four of us went to August Healing for other sweet and savoury delights.  This time when we went up to the little cafe, the tables were all occupied except for one.  Next time we must not go during lunch time.  Mistake....  Anyway, we managed to get a table near the window while waiting for another two of my friends to arrive.  First time visit for them and I hope they like the food there as much as I like them.  We ordered three different varieties to share as we had a heavy breakfast in the morning....  Which shall I choose? Berries bread pudding today....  Forgot what this is called....  Garlic honey scones...  Coffee for my friends.... As for me, I had Chamomile tea....  We ordered one croissant to share.... Smoked duck and omelette fillings... Full to the brim... RM15....  Quiche again.... different fillings this time... RM15 And a Happy Birthday piece of cheese cake... RM14.. Though just a few varieties, we were very full.... For dinner, I just ha

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...
