How I Spend My Time In Sacramento

JUST REST AND RELAX... in my sister's house for one week before I went back to San Jose.  

Most mornings both of us ate a big bowl of oats and that was it until lunch time whereby we would go out for Asian food or a homecooked meal at home.  In the afternoons, both of us would laze around in the sun room to watch Netflix while dozing off half way through most of the time.  I guess retirees are living a life like this... napping in the afternoons!  Now I know why.... seniors like me cannot laze in bed too long and because of that, we need our afternoon naps... LOL... 

Anyway, resting and relaxing, time still passes by very fast and a day is over when we hit our pillows around 11pm.  That is my life in Sacramento.... just lazing away.... no wonder I love to go there! LOL.. 

My sister took me to Lollibowl
A Hongkong restaurant which serves what we love to eat...
Fried Koay Teow with lots of ingredients!
Price has increased a bit.. $13.00 now...
Anyway, both of us shared this enormous portion.... 

My sister cooked Sambal Anchovies... 
It is her signature dish... LOL.. 
And the rest below cooked by yours truly...\
Taro with spinach.... 
Zucchini with mushrooms... 
That was our meal for the whole day.... 
And soon we were back to San Jose on a Saturday afternoon... 


  1. oOoOO, I like your char kway teow, so much ingredients and the kway teow so thick! I like thick kway teow! Your home cooked dishes look very tasty too! 👍👍👍

  2. I must nap in the morning afternoon too but I go to sleep at around 9, not so late! I eat oats most morning these days too..

  3. I takes nap in afternoon too!! Otherwise I can't function well. Wake up so early on weekdays, drive in and out, I need to rest well

    Nice home cooked meal. Bet you will miss her cooking.

  4. Whoa! The fried koay teow is super loaded. I like! The home cooked dishes look wonderful too.

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

Exploring The Sea Cruise Royal Caribbean

CRUISING ALONG.... Once we deposited our bags in our cabins, we had our buffet meal at the Hammerjack restaurant and exactly at 4pm, we heard a loud Horn signal...  ITS TIME TO SAIL ALONG THE PACIFIC OCEAN! And while the ship started to sail, we humans started to walk and explore.... to familarize ourselves inside the ship....  Elevators on each side of the ship....  Making my mark....  On another side....  We walked along to check out our food outlets... This Promenade Cafe  had became our regular joint .... We like to sit there enjoying our hot drinks and desserts... Free flow of food day and night.... Passing through the bars to the casino... The casino will open only when the ship is in international waters...  At one of the jackpot machines... I wonder if they are real?? But they are only $1 bundles... Then we went up to the highest floor.... The swimming deck.... Taken against the sun.... Nice sunset in the evening.... The Happy Trio!

First Day In The Royal Caribbean Cruise To Mexico

ROW ROW ROW YOUR BOAT.... gently down the sea....  Royal Caribbean, it is my second time following this giant vessel, the first time was from Singapore to Phuket, that was a very nice cruise.  So when my son mentioned that he found a good deal online, this time to Mexico, I agreed without hesitation.  Let's Go! A three nights stay with food and lodging only cost around $250 per person with at least one senior in per room.  Meals were either buffet style or fine dining, we can choose and cafes were opened 24 hours for us to rest and relax.  How not to resist... LOL...  And so here we are... just one week after landing in US, I was on the sea....  Looks small from afar...  It was a giant vessel with at least 14 floors.... On the way to embarking after Custom Clearance...  Our room for the next three nights....  Small and cosy.... And adjoining to my son's family room through a door...  The one with balcony cost a bit more...  A short briefing about safety after we checked in....
