An Invitation To Mouth-Watering Dinner In Sacramento

MY LAST EVENING IN SACRAMENTO... dinner time was spent at my sister's BFF house.  She invited both of us for a special dinner, all homecooked!  That was what I love... trying out other nationality's dishes, their ways of cooking is equally scrumptious and mouth-watering!

For the three of us, she practically prepared a feast... LOL... we surely could not finish them all.... 

Started off with an appetizer....
I went rice-less.... 
Wouldn't want to fill up the space in my stomach with the carbo... 
LOL.... 
Vietnamese wrap with 4 shrimps and homegrown vegetables from her garden...
I love this dish....
Squash with shrimps, long beans with coconut milk.... 
Slightly spicy which is good for me.... 
I ate a lot of the squash...
Taste something like a combination of yam and pumpkin... 
How I wish I could fry my fish this way.... 
My fish always ended up "semi-naked" if not "naked".... 
LOL... 
And a big bowl of desserts....
Red beans, bananas, sago and coconut milk.... 
It was not so sweet so I ate quite a lot!
This is a feast to me!
The dinner was about to begin....
Ooopsss... let's have one for the album....
Thank you, D for the scrumptious dinner!!
Till we meet again some day....

  1. What a delicious meal! Love the wrap, the squash dish, fried fish and red bean dessert. That dessert sounds very rich and thick! Something like a thick pekat tong sui.

  2. I love that pumpkin masak lemak, looks so delicious! I wonder what fish those are - looks good too...and of course, the Vietnamese rolls. Just bought a whole lot of prawns - I think we can have that one of these days!

    So where are you off to next, after Sacramento? That is where your sis stays, right? Going over to your son's place now to start babysitting?

  6. I love home cooked meals and this one looks great. Love the wraps, prawns and fish. The dessert looks a bit think but I think the banana makes it yummy. I have yet to taste Filipino food.

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
