We all know moving to a new environment is a difficult decision. When a home has been vacant for one year there are items that no longer function property. Only way to know what works and doesn't is to actually live in the home. We grow up raised to clean our homes and make it organized. Moving into a home you see things that may distract yourself by figuring out what needs to be done. Manang V had asked if she can have my kitchen table when I left the previous home. I figured the time I had assemble that old table was during my pandemic years. I decided to make another purchase for a kitchen table that is a bit taller in height. I felt having to many appliances can add on to your room. Carmina made her purchase from  Amaia Furniture  Shopee Philippines. I have made a purchase from them in the past.

8 Piece Fire Grilled Chicken Dinner at El Pollo Loco

Carmina had asked Mom Violy what she would eat for dinner. Mom Violy said, there is a lot of food in the refrigerator that is all leftover. Carmina didn't want to eat repeated leftover for a week.  Carmina told Mom Violy she'll just order her dinner along with Papa Ping through Door Dash Delivery. Few minutes later Carmina told Mom Violy she'll be ordering El Pollo Loco and decided to get the 8 Pieces Fire Grilled Chicken Dinner  that came with 2 sides of your choice for $28.99 not including delivery fee and tip to the rider.

Strawberry Acai at Starbucks

The moment when you had a full meal yet the feeling there is room for something cold to drink. Mom Violy wanted to have her favorite Mocha Frappe so did the rest of the family. Carmina is the odd one who goes toward something else requesting Strawberry Acai with no lemonade in her beverage. When you feel there are too many people inside Starbucks you just feel safe drinking outside in open air and enjoy the wind passing by making us colder with our drinks.  Carmina liked the Strawberry Acai just something we want to try other than what Mom Violy and the relatives we're drinking. Starbucks  USA caters to those who also don't want coffee in our drinks. There are beverages we can drink that comes seasonal to what only served for a short period of time.

Bonding with relatives before you're about to leave next month willing to take you out for half day on a Saturday. Joanna asked, Carmina where would you like to eat giving us an option to choose. Mom Violy said she wanted to eat Korean. Joanna said why don't we eat where our relative had their birthday. Joanna had made a reservation under her name for party of five at Ohgane in Alameda, California. Joanna, Edric and Auntie Mila had cooked the food for us. Picture is always a must when spending with your family. Mom Violy and Carmina had the miso tofu soup which is kind of spicy but able to tolerate the taste. The serving is big can be enough for two people. Carmina decided to try their vegetable pancake. It wasn't that good kind of bland even if you add the dipping sauce. Carmina wanted to try their rice cake with honey. It kind of taste more of a dessert being sweet on the sauce yet it soft which was good enough for us. We also had our favorite japchae.  To read about othe
