First Morning And Our Meals At Kona, Hawaii

FIRST MORNING... after a good night rest, we woke up early... the time difference between San Jose and Kona is 3 hours, meaning... if SJ is 8am, it is 5am in Kona.  The first night I went to bed at 9pm but actually it was only 6pm in Kona... LOL... so that is the first time I slept so early throughout the night... 

After cooking a nice but unhealthy breakfast and feeling satisfied, we took a walk to an shopping area nearby to get some stuff for lunch and so forth.... 
Our hearty breakfast , stuff bought from Costco... 
Along the way... 
All the black black stuff is the lava....
Kano is a volcano state... an active one too.
The last eruption was 2018.. hence the black lava everywhere... 
Quiet area and we went in to get some foodstuff for our lunch and dinner...
Sushi corner...
Korean corner...
Orange chicken for $9.99 without any greens which lacks presentation....
Poke corner....
Our meals for lunch and the remainder for dinner.... 
Yes, added in some other food for dinner... 
Definitely this is not enough...

  1. Orange chicken looks good - should be something like our very popular lemon chicken here. $9.99 for all that meat with rice is reasonable, just don't convert. LOL!!!

    You can do your own cooking where you all stayed? That's a lot cheaper when overseas than eating out - just buy from the supermarket and cook what you like!!!

  6. I saw Kona and Kano in your post. Are they different names?

  7. How exciting to visit a place that had a volcanic eruption in 2018 and that is about 3 years ago. Looks like a nice town and the food is interesting.

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

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....

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...
