I'm back ....

Howdee, greetings from sunny sunshine California :) - geee, everyday lotion from top to bottom, then sun block ....my skin cannot breathe lah ...yet still itchy ! Okie, Did I 'Sleepless in Seattle' ? Did I meet someone there ? cerita sambung sini.

Enjoyed the relaxing short trip to Seattle. Been there, seen it - happy :) Some highlights, visited the first original Starbucks cafe leh, it's just in front of the Pike's market. Started in 1912 leh. Of course, must minum, act a bit yau ying lah, kan. Ringgit - believe me, I actually stood at the counter for a while , thinking, using my 386 processor, processing if I should get him the really really nice big starbuck mug loh - which ada 'original' logo ...oh well, seriuos thought for a while, return code = 08 wor. Sebab I just need to keep my luggage light & easy, hate to pay extra care to bring back a fragile mug, plus I truly hate to deliver a broken one as well, tai kat lai see meh :P .... may be u sendiri honeymoon there hor :P

Original StarBucks Cafe


Visited the MUST see things in Seattle - Seattle Center - Space Needle, waterfront, Farmer's market ( famous Pike's fish market ). Food wise, I memang suka claim chowder, so got a tip must try the Seattle famous claim chowder wor - so I walked and walked - bought myself lunch cum dinner - a set of claim chowder, scallops and fries set. Sat down at the breezy waterfront area and makan sambil menikmati the keindahan surrounded me lah. What a pity the mat salleh deep fried those super huge nice sweet fresh scallops loh ....geee, the chinese way of 'steam' scallop would be a real delicacies loh .... fried - cannot bring out the best .....Then, while i was makan-ing, so so so sad - see - this Bahija hah - like i said 386 processor aje - betul2 careless or down syndrom one lah, ter-dropped my expensive camera - really big drop - the LCD screen pecah - kaput liow - so sakit hati .....aiiiii, there goes the happy fun mood ....

The famous yummy Ivar's claim chowder ...


This round, I stayed alone in the motel. Took Metro bus from airport area to downtown, got to see some locals and their surrounding. Quite a different experience. Boo Boo thing - didn't realize the daylight time was so long, I super kiasu cepat2 caught the bus balik hotel at 6 pm. takut langit dark, downtown area dangerous for me mah. When I reached hotel, it's 7pm, it's still extremely bright. I opened the curtain every hours to check ....repeated 3 times - baru langit jadi dark - that's 10 pm - OH MAN - wasted 3 hours sitting in the hotel do nothing .....lulu tak ?

Went up to Space Needle, it's a nice view of the whole Seattle. Good view on Lake Washington, Lake Union, Washington State University , oh - the famous houseboat for 'Sleepless in Seattle' ....all in all - captured at Space Needle. This round, met 2 nice gentlemen, Roy, the airline officer - helped me carried my luggages to the check in station. This days, everything in Seattle airport is e-ticketing, e-check in, e-bla bla bla , sort of tak ada human touch, Roy so pro-active, tolong I, may be I do have this 'kampung girl' look kut , haha....Next, another gentleman tak tahu nama apa, didn't even talk to him at all .... he stepped down from bus, and waited for me to get down, helped me to carry my luggages .....he wasn't interested to talk to me at all, just took luggages, then said bye. I only managed to bow my head and said 10Q 10Q 10Q aje ....to these 2 gentlemen, who made part of my trip sweet and memorable - 10Q !!

Kimikuniya! Wah not bad get to do things all the things you like to do like sipping coffee at Original Starbucks and eating the famous Clam Chowder. Remember to jaga your weight ya! Yummy food comes with unwanted results hehehe. Camera broken is a sign of getting a new one. Old one don't go New one won't come!

Enjoy!

Kimikuniya, watching weight is important because we want to stay healthy, not so much that we just want to look skinny. Look like skinny stick like anti-ringgit, always pain here pain there, this cannot eat, that cannot do. Stay healthy is most important.
