Tasty Hot Pot On A Cool Evening

FROM WESTERN TO EASTERN.... The three of us went to Tasty Hot Pot, a Taiwanese eatery near our place.  I have been there once before but not my sister's Filipino friend, this was her first time visit to this place and like us, we were looking forward to our evening's dinner at this place.... We ordered two hot pots to share among us.....  To be on the safe side, we ordered a mild spicy pot.... If too spicy, our tongues would be numb! The pot consists of noodles, lots of beef among some vegetables... I suggested ordering a vegan pot.... non-meat....  This is what I like! No flames... that is why it is called hot pot.... Must be burning hot in this stand....  And the side condiments to go with the hot pot....  For a side dish, we were recommended these Cajun Fried Chicken Wings.... Yes, very well recommended... they are so crunchy and tasty! A very scrumptious and hot dinner.....  Total bill came to around $55....  We love it... we plan to come again some day... One fine day... 

4 Areas Any Momtrepreneurs Can Outsource To Grow

  Image Credit: StartupStockPhotos from Pixabay. Every entrepreneur will tell you how complicated it can be to grow your business. While there are multiple paths to doing so, these will all have things to overcome. In most cases, a blend of different strategies can be recommended. Seeing what has been effective for others and adapting these to your business’ needs will be vital. One strategy you could take advantage of is outsourcing. This is the process of hiring third parties to perform certain essential tasks. That approach can offer several benefits. Some of the more notable of these include: Allowing employees to focus on other duties, making them more productive. Reducing your labor costs. Eliminating employee-related expenses, such as insurance, taxes, and benefits. Taking advantage of these fully will mean that you can grow your business. That’s especially true if you outsource certain areas. If you’re unsure of what these are, then you might be unsure of where to start. Some t

Thursday Lobster Day At Rudy's

THURSDAY PROMOTION ON LOBSTER SET.... and since I would be only there for a week in Sacramento, we took advantage of having this deal before I leave.  Many thanks to my sister and family for giving this scrumptious treat! This time we really got to beat the crowd by being there on the dot... 4pm!  We were more or less the first few patrons to enter and we were given a really good service by the staff who attended to us every now and then.  He even recommended what to eat and the best thing is, he gave each of us a bowl of freshly cooked Clam Chowder!  He sang high praises of this soup and he insisted that we must try... compliments from him!  Wow... so nice of him.... end of meal, my sister tipped him very well too!  LOL...  Rudy's Hideaway in Sacramento... Then my son told me they have this too in St Jose.... Each day they offer different promotion deals....  At the side of entrance....  Upon entering.... We opted for the Captain's room since the place was quite empty then....

How to Build Your Business Online   If you feel inspired to be your own boss and launch a business, there is no better time than right now. Entrepreneurship has changed significantly throughout the years, and it feels as if anyone can be a business owner, and that’s because they can . With the power and resources of online spaces, you can start a company, whether to earn money on the side or enjoy professional independence. So how do you build a business entirely online? Here are four places to get started.  Create a Usable Website  A high-quality website is one of the most effective ways to make a great first impression for customers and clients, especially if they are unsure what services you offer.  Your website will provide all the information your customers need and can include examples of past projects, whether these were professional projects or not. You can create the website yourself, but it’s best to work with a web designer if you’re unsure where to start, as this w

Dinner At Texas Roadhouse On Labour Day

ONE OF MY FAVORITE RESTAURANTS .... and not to be missed is the Texas Roadhouse.   It was Labour day on Monday and we thought that reaching there as early as 3pm, we could get the table easily.   We were mistaken, the crowd was already there and we had to wait 45 minutes for our table.  Should we wait or change venue?  The sun was blazing hot and another place might be the same, we might have to wait too.  I guess the waiting is due to SOPs.... They do not want the patrons to be seated close as before.  That is good control in a way, thus the wait.....  While the two guys had some drinks at the bar, we two ladies were walking up and down outside the entrance... oh my, it was as if the food is so free or so good... I can agree with the latter.... the food was so good as usual that comes with reasonable prices.  That is why we like to go there... LOL... Entrance.... we waited here for awhile to cool down.... We can choose our own steaks... which we did not... Social Distancing.... Main e

My Sunday In Sacramento

GETAWAY...  The first week in San Jose came and went.... and it was on a Saturday that I packed up my suitcase again for a one week stay in Sacramento.   My full time nanny job does not start till the third week so I quickly took up the opportunity to visit my sister.  Once my job starts, I might not have "leave" to go anywhere... LOL... My son dropped me at my sister's place, it was a two hours plus drive from their place and they went back on the same day.  Bye-Bye.... see you the following week!! The next day was a Sunday, we did not waste much time in Sacramento.  Together with my sister's friend, we went out shopping and eating what I have been craving for.  Shopping was supposed to be secondary but I ended up buying four pairs of shoes!!  Walking shoes mostly for elderly people like me, they will last me for another couple of years.  LOL..... Food was my primary purpose in Sacramento.... Sister's friend is a Filipino... so naturally we went for Filipino food

How To Encourage Better Dog Behaviour

Whether your dog is a puppy or an adult, it might still be a nuisance from time to time. When a dog feels energetic, they can be playful and sometimes not be on their best behaviour. Although it is good to let your dog play, it is best to set some rules so that they can be on good behaviour. If you sometimes struggle with managing your dog and want it to be on better behaviour, here are some tips.  Image by PicsbyFran from Pixabay   Use the right toys Dogs love to play and using toys is a great way to expend their energy as well as train them. Using a toy like Runball promotes exercise and good behaviour. Plus, it will tire your dog out before it tires you out so you won’t have to worry about your dog depleting all of your energy out in the garden or on a walk. Toys can be disruptive to a dogs behaviour if you allow them to play with them and take full control. Whereas a toy that you can control will ensure that they know to act appropriately and it allows them to be under your contr

My First Few Days In San Jose

I AM REALLY HERE.... not a dream anymore or wishing I could come here, that was on my mind for the past couple of months.  An almost impossible trip has become possible through the Grace of God despite this pandemic looming globally.  I thought I would be "lockup" for many more months in my country until don't-know-when.... and no traveling for me for years to come... I lost some weight during the past two months and I thought of nonsense... (Ok, that will be another part of my story).... and I am so Thankful to my God that I am now reunited with my son, my daughter-in-law and my first grandson who is now going to be five months old!   All these months, I have been watching him grow via video chats, yes, I am thankful for that too! Settling down is not a problem, the weather is very much like Malaysia except here is dry heat and not humid.  No sweating but dry... needs a lot of suntan lotion once out from the house.  I landed on Sunday evening and the next day, my DIL too
