What to do in Mineral Wells, Texas?

It was a spur of the moment when we head out to Mineral Wells in Texas, it was about 62 miles away and an hour drive from Hurst.  The drive was faster than what google suggested, which was about an hour and 28 minutes.  It must be the President’s Day holiday. No traffic.

I have not researched about Mineral Wells, it was just a suggestion from my friend that we should go there while the weather is good.  Oh, it supposed to be winter this time but based on the weather we are experiencing now and what we read about the weather forecast, it will be an early Spring. My kind of weather.  Short pants and Flip Flop time baby!

A Bad Dinner Experience at AllGood Cafe in Deep Ellum, Dallas, Texas

Of all the days to be humiliated, why it was on my birthday on Jan 28? And of all people, it was from this rude, obnoxious, old goat owner of AllGood Cafe’, Mike Schneider.

Macy’s Theatre of Lights in Old Town Sacramento

We ended the night in Old Town Sacramento by watching the 8th annual Macy’s Theatre of Lights presented by the Old Sacramento Department of the Downtown Sacramento. It was amazing (not to mention it’s free) and I have a lot of photos to share and a video of the whole Sound and Lights Show.

The show started on Thanksgiving and will end on Christmas Eve, Clement Clarke Moore’s classic Christmas poem come to spectacular life on the balconies and facades of Old Sacramento at K Street and Front.

Road trip to Sacramento, California – Day 1

As a kid in The Philippines watching TV Series such as The Beverly Hill Billies and Dallas, I often wondered what the rest of America was like.

I have been fortunate to travel to many places in the world including The Middle East, Europe, Asia and now finally realizing my dream of seeing America by car.

Thai Thip Restaurant in Hurst, Texas

I have been craving for something and couldn’t figure out what, until my friend and I passed by Thai Thip Restaurant in Hurst. I thought, hmm maybe it is a Thai spice I was craving for.  I think it is as I have not eaten a really good Thai food for a long time since last November of 2014 in Bangkok, Thailand (Mali Restaurant, which is for me by far the best Thai Restaurant in the world).

Thai food sounds good and it was around lunch time. Wow! Thai Thip was packed. I’ve never seen Thai Thip this packed. The few times that we’ve been here was either after lunch or before their closing time, and usually there were only few tables occupied (sometimes only us). But not this time.  I am glad.  They have the best tasting Thai Food in HEB area.

Free Internet Speed at Hamad International Airport in Doha, Qatar (Live Blogging)

Being stuck here at Hamad International Airport in Doha, Qatar would be very disappointing if there’s no free wi-fi.  Luckily there is.  What will you do for 19 hours until your next flight if there’s no free internet?  I think I’m going to pull my white hair one by one hahaha.

Jollibee Opening Soon In Dubai Mall

A friend of mine who works as part of a service crew in the Food Court of Dubai Mall, informed me that Jollibee will be opening April 3, 2015.  Anticipating a line of at least 1 kilometer line of Filipino customers, lo and behold the facade was still covered with an “Opening Soon” Sign board.
