Lunch at Mashawi Grill

I visited my grandma this weekend and overnight Saturday night at her house.

The next morning (Sunday), we went out and had lunch at Mashawi Grill (Mediterranean Cuisine) at the Rolling Hill Plaza in Torrance. I was very hungry that time. Dad ordered three items - two kebab plates and one salad (no picture).

How I Wear My Shoes

Mom's note:

I don't know how to teach him. Usually, when I tell him something (could be everything), go in one ear and out the other. 

 I don't know how many times had I already told him not to step on the heel of the shoes when wearing them.  The old shoes that we had to replaced, also because he stepped on the heel too much and the shoes was no longer wearable. 

This flammable Vans are a few months old, and already let him ruined the heel part.  Why my child, why can't you just listen?

Mother's Day Dinner at China Garden

Initially, we wanted to dine at Taiko. However, when we arrived at the restaurant at 5pm, there was already a long line waiting.

So instead, we went to China Garden for dinner. There was no line and not too many people were dining there yet. I guess it was still a bit early for he regular Chinese people to have dinner. Eventually the crowd built up and by the time we left the restaurant, it was full and there was a line outside waiting.

I always love to dine here with my family. I like most of the dishes we usually order, especially the fried tofu with the braised duck sauce. YUMMY!

Mother's Day Gift

I made these special mother's day gifts for my mom at school.  We brought home today to surprise our mom for Mother's Day this Sunday.

I wrote a poem and painted an iris in purple and yellow color for her.

 

Coincidently, when my mom attended the volunteer's tea on Tuesday, she was selected as a raffle ticket winner for a vase of fresh flowers, just in time for Mother's Day.

Folding Laundry

One of my chores is to fold my own laundry. Here are a few pictures of me doing it.


I was folding my T-shirt.


Then I would stack them up accordingly.


What do you think of my laundry folding skill? My mom said there are still room for improvement.

Avengers Age of Ultron

Finally, the wait is over. We went to watch Avengers Age of Ultron this morning at 9:45am at the AMC Tustin District. Each ticket cost $6.99.

We got there around 9:15am and there were already people inside the theater. We got good seats, not too far in front or too far back. As we approached the showing time, more people came in and it was a full screening.

The movie was very long but luckily I didn't have to run to the bathroom at all. We stayed till the end and I saw the blue man. After some research, I finally remembered that I saw him in the Guardian of the Galaxy. His name is Thanos and will be the supervillain in the next Avengers movie.

Lunch at Kickin' Crab

Today, after Chinese school and before we went to Gardena to visit my grandma, we went to Kickin' Crab in Diamond Jamboree Plaza for lunch. This is one of my favorite restaurants.

We ordered two pounds of clams and one pound of shrimps with the "Kickin' Style" seasoning (a mix of lemon pepper, Cajun, Louisiana and garlic butter) in mild spiciness for $32.99. Mom also added an order of pita bread ($3.50) to dip into the sauce.


After placing, we had to wait about 20 minutes for our lunch to arrive.  They had a lot of to-go order they had to fulfill and almost forgot our order.


I was so hungry when our bag of seafood arrived.  Our pita bread arrived almost right after we placed our order, but I didn't want to eat it without the kickin' sauce.  The shrimps and clams were so yummy and garlicky.


Here is our kickin seafood in a bag (with corns and sausages).
