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.

Live Blogging: Oktoberfest in Southlake, Texas

We were supposed to go to Fredericksburg for the Oktoberfest but decided to go to Southlake Oktoberfest anyway. But we had a great time, had good food as well.

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.

How I Got My South Korea Tourist Visa in Dallas, Texas, USA?

I also asked myself how I did that.  I was surprised as well.  As I am not a resident of United States of America, I took a chance to apply for a tourist visa at the South Korea Consulate in Dallas, Texas and fortunately I was provided a single entry which is valid for 90 days.

Houston Texas Aerial Photos

Just left Dallas and flew with American Airlines which I and many think that is one of the worst airlines in the world.  Although there was no bad expedience with this flight but my check-in experience was horrible.  What an incompetent ground attendant.  Aside from the fact that she can’t move faster because of her physical condition but her brain was not functioning. Darn!

Abuelo’s Mexican Food Embassy, Hurst, Texas

It’s been a while since I had Mexican food and Abuelo’s in Hurst is probably one of the best I had so far. The place was packed even during weekdays.  Food was good and not that expensive, cost about $47/- for three person.

Fort Worth Stockyards

It was two days after Christmas in 2009 and a day before we leave Dallas for Thailand when my friend took me the famous Stockyards in Fort Worth, Texas.  Prior to that visit to Stockyards, we had our delicious late lunch at Zeke’s Fish & Chips (click here to read the article).

The Fort Worth Stockyards is a National Historic District located in Fort Worth, Texas north of the central business district. The stockyards are a former livestock market which operated under various owners from 1866 and has many bars and nightclubs like Billy Bob’s Texas.

The Fort Worth Stockyards are the last standing stockyards in the United States. Some Fort Worth volunteers still run the cattle drives today. They do it so that people can see what it was like in the 1800s.

I have a couple of photos that I would to share you and to understand what I am talking about. Read More
