Memorial Day Weekend Part I: Black Dumplings!?!

First day of my Memorial Day Weekend,
Decided to go down to San Diego and do some sight-seeing,
But this trip won't be complete without food,
So we found thing weird, bizarre Chinese black dumplings around La Jolla-

The chef must be really good at wrapping dumplings,
Not only the tips are pointing up exactly like a Chinese gold ingot,
*To see what is Chinese gold ingot, click here.
It also got a ripple-shaped design in the middle!
Okok, you got me (I hope so, otherwise you're extremely gullible),
Those are actually wild seals around Children's Pool in La Jolla,
There are many of them on the sand, I mean a LOT-

And those seals sure know how to enjoy a Saturday after by taking a good old nap-

This one was yawning-

And he is my favorite, look at that innocent face-

Besides my Chinese black dumplings,
I also took some pictures during sunset,
Photoshoped this one, lucky me, the birds just flied over when I took the shot-

Wish you all are having a wonderful Memorial Day weekend there,
More scenery pictures to come!

  5. To Zen Chef~
    Thank you!
    I really need this Memorial Day Weekend break,
    Burned out!

  6. the sunset photo is beautiful, so are the cute lil seals! :D

  7. Don't you find them noisy? Hee hee...
    Maybe I went at the wrong time...mating season? I don't know. I saw the seals at a different place though (now I forgot where)....somewhere in California...Woops!

  8. To Jaime la Nourriture~
    Thank you!
    The seals are adorable, each one of them has their own personality, and it does show on the camera!

    To Tigerfish~
    Haha they were pretty quite, I guess the weather just made them super sleepy!
    And I think sea lions actually makes more noise than seals. Buttttt, even though they were quite....they smelled pretty bad..

  9. Cuteness and sunsets. Yum. :)

  10. Now get your butt back in the kitchen!! haha. Just kidding!

  11. To Zen Chef~
    Haha okok I did drag myself all the way from my bed to the kitchen (few steps is very hard when you're super tired..) and made some salsa!

    To Coffee & Vanilla~
    Thank you so much!

  12. These pictures were super cute!

  13. Great pictures! I really must get photoshop. Love the sunset.
