General Discussion / it's that time of the year again
« on: November 20, 2018, 11:27:42 AM »
One more month and nyob zoo xyoo tshiab - aka Happy New Year

and Happy Early Thanksgiving to all

resharing from previous year

As we only have about a little less than a month left for our annual Hmong New Year festivities in my city...figured I could try to put together something quick for my baby nieces...

I used to watch my mother make this out of cardboard boxes and seeing her wrap all the yarn in her hand was so very time consuming

(this is just a test version of the pom poms so that's why it's not perfect)

after making several, I learned that the thickness of a yarn/thread matters and if u want one like the ones sent from oversea, you'll have to use the smaller yarn

these amelican yarn are not meant for hmong hat pom poms, but whatever works (for now) ...

and a very sharp scissor is easier to work with...but so very expensive  :-\ :-\ (even after coupons  :P )

General Discussion / car question : what could be draining the battery?
« on: October 22, 2018, 11:32:45 AM »
hello folks, the good thing is I got my darn battery replaced ....the bad news is I'm trying to figure out what could have been the cause of the battery draining so fast? I've had brand new cars in the past and don't remember having to change the battery this early on in the stage?  :-\ :-\  (maybe because it was a Honda  :P)

now to a Toyota (rav4)
short story, bought the car when it was only 11 miles (test drove) back in Sept. 2016. it's only been 2 years and 42 days since this past Saturday that I had to replace the factory installed battery

I don't recall any signs of battery outage at all while driving this thing around  ???

went and got gas, car wash and vacuum...while vacuuming, I remembered leaving my doors opened to air out the dust and the lights were probably on causing the battery outage but it was no more than 5 mins. then I got stuck inside the vacuuming terminal  :'( had to call husband 911 to drop everything and come help drag and push the car out  :P

I've googled everything I could to try to virtually diagnosed or figured out my issue so maybe I could avoid it in the future but there's just too many here I am relying on pher's personal experience (if any)  :P

how about yours? so here i am at work today....less traffic...

I figured, since this is the closest to me instead of driving all the way to the opposite of town (Elk Grove) for Korean fried chicken, decided to give this location a try since they recently opened.

My experience…customer service is horrible here. I’m going to give them the benefit of the doubt as they just recently opened and need to work on a few horrible perks especially on the customer service aspect of it.

Tried dining in during their soft opening which was a big failed as wait time was ridiculous. The 2nd time, we went in during lunch hours…signed in and was the next on the list for a table. Patiently waited and someone near the front acknowledged that I was present however the staff/servers were walking around like I was invisible.

Then in walks 4 meskas dawbs and lord almighty, they SAW them well. Fortunately they were nice enough to let the staff know that I was there before them and finally got seated.  Staff are mostly Asians.

Bonchon Chicken is a South Korean-based international fried chicken restaurant franchise.
Ordered the following:
pickled daikon w/ their infamous fried chicken

Pork buns


Fried Rice

General Discussion / Instant pot (pressure cooker)
« on: August 27, 2018, 06:12:53 PM »
a few months ago, there was a sale @ Kohls and I decided to purchase this pressure cooker in hopes that I can cook some meal prep in here, however I haven't had time to really browse for any meal prep recipe...

I was watching a youtube video of how to cook pho w/ this...been meaning to try it but just need to find time...if u had purchased one, what have u cooked w/ it?

General Discussion / with cooler weather
« on: August 27, 2018, 04:40:36 PM »
comes the soup

here's what I cooked w/ the lemon grass I was chopping up at my mother's garden the other day...the good thing about living in a city where there's lots of Asian stores is that they already have the chicken gutted and cleaned and all u would need to do is clean some more and chop it

I prefer a hen over a rooster aka c0ck  :P

Chicken broth w/ chicken herbs

I don't eat the chicken feet but just put it in there for the flavor

thankfully it was only in the low 70s that morning I have a year's supply of lemon grass in my freezer (after I got home I individually wapped em' in ziplock bag and store for the rest of the season

I know it's early but june 17 is father's day

this picture depicts the year 1970 something when he was just a teenager. My father is in the middle w/ his older brother to the left and other homie to the right.  Thankfully he didn't have to carry us across his back crossing the Mekong (that was my grandfather's era) ... married my mother at age 19 while my mother was only 16  :-\ :-\

my sister and I was born in two separate refugee camps and we all came to amelica while my grandparents went to France in the early 80s w/ the rest of his siblings.  what's your txiv story?
