So we bought some Chocolate Wafers, during Chinese new year, from Ranch 99 which were pretty good, not to mention cheap! 3 bucks for 1 big bucket.
That Chocolate Wafer ran out quickly and we bought a different flavor, PANDAN. I didn’t mind it that much but Meixin didn't like it, so she decided the Feed the Squirrel with it… AND NOW… the squirrel is a regular patron to our backyard/Patio..

In Chronological Order
18th DecTouch Down! Home visit in Silicon Valley and Check into Granada Inn for the night!
The FIRST Stop was actually at Ranch 99 ! Right off I-280 Towards San Jose! So as you can see, everyone was “enjoying” their First Taste of chinese Food tapau’d from Ranch 99, the asian Super store!
Tons of Luggages!
The following morning, at the Granada Inn after the "sumptuous" breakfast haha
Head up to the mountains! Yosemite National Park!
Story of the Mah Lai Ko…
I think the Deer probably diarrhea big time after eating the left over Mah Lai Ko from the day before. We need to get his attention to pose, so feed anything that was on hand hehe
After Eating, our friend the deer decided to pose for us to take some pictures!
On the Second day, Awesome Weather! We headed up for a light trek to Yosemite Falls. Fortunately, it wasn’t icy even though it was REALLY cold. As long as the sun is shining, its still bearable.
Some major discussions about the future policies…
Father’s Fav Bench!
We headed for lunch at the Yosemite Village, before proceeding to Bridal Veil.. Kinda disappointing , cuz wrong season. Bridal Veil had *no Veil!!! No water fall , we were the only people there, apart from a few other disappointed stragglers..
Anyway , onward to Tunnel VIEW, in time for the superb “golden” sunset.
Mx – > Special snowing effect by Dennis..it actually wasn't snowing there yet but there was snow on the floor here and there
Spectacular Sunset, totally golden!
22nd Dec - > Lombard Street
Golden Gate Bridge! We were so lucky weather was good, skies were clear that day. On bad days, the whole bridge gets covered in low-lying clouds.
We headed to Chinatown in the evening. It gets dark before 5pm here during winter, so it looks late but it was barely 5pm. Bought a lot of souvenirs here.
23rd-24th DECHOLLYWOOD! Los Angeles Tour, REdondo beach, Santa Monica Blvd, UNIVERSAL STUDIO!
It was a long, tiring drive (for poor Dennis) from Santa Clara to Los Angeles. That's about 7+hours drive inclusive of breaks. We had Jack-in-the-Box for lunch at the rest stop.
Traffic in LA is bad as usual..people drive crazy there. We decided to pop by Hollywood Blvd before checking into the hotel as Residence Inn was further down along the beach area.
Here's Hollywood for you. Crowded, bustling with activities especially at the Highland Center where we took this pic.
25th-26th DECLAS VEGAS! Slots machines, Buffets, Shopping!
Vegas was beautiful with all the lights along the strip! Will post more pics from Dennis' super cam
We stayed at The Venetian.
OMG is the room super big or what??? 2 nights here is not enough for me!!!
Checking out the Christmas lightings after dinner
THE BUFFET at the Wynn hotel - We queued for an hour. Seriously. Spread was crazy a lot. Food's not too bad.
27th –28th DECHead off towards Nevada – > First Stop, Hover DAM!
Jam for an hour at hoover dam cos of security check. They're just worried about terrorists wanting to bomb the dam (just like 007 movies).
Took selfies for everyone in the car since we weren't doing anything while waiting in the queue. Driver looks like he's having a headache haha
We took a quick pit stop at Hoover Dam as it was really crowded and we had to rush off to Grand Canyon.
The Grand Canyon – > SPECTACULAR! AMAZING! and very cold….
Souvenir Shopping in the Store
