Thanks USA Family&Friends

16 Jun 2017 – For This Visit

Thu: my father LAM TinYue would have been 106; L&M’s paternal grandfather John HALD III 94 today. Such noble gentlemen are not easy to encounter.

0700hrs XC practice has been re-scheduled from the neighbourhood back to the high school due to some issues with the Clearwater HOA

Good to see nearly 50 turned up for this breakfast practice,

while #4&5 were enjoying the sand at the long jump pit with the long shadows in the early morning sun.

After practice, headed into town to send the gang to their VBS. Breakfast@The Original Pancake House****good coffee&food. As usual had doggy-bag my omelette.

@Trenholm Plaza, Forest Drive, the shops are more upscale and the selections@The Fresh Market are impressive. 40%sale@Loft – have not bought a dress for a while and  something that fits to my liking too.

Spent the rest of the afternoon doing laundry and packing – my least favourite thing to do! Tkx to Linn&Jeff for dinner@Fuddruckers my favourtie burger place where I can order a medium or well-down burger.

The first time at a Fuddruckers was nearly 30yrs ago when we moved from CA to FL. It claims to have the World’s Greatest Hamburgers. Have not tried all over the world but so far Fuddruckers is my favourite. Had a sip of the beer, OK but still not a beer drinker. Got it as the name was rather intriguing! The evening storm was a relief after the hot humid weathers.

Burning the mid-night lamp to sort out my purchases and to see how much the backpack can take! NO it does not get easier no matter how many times I have been thru’ this, but it is a dark and stormy night…


Fri: TGIF. Tkx Jeff for taking time to meet with us for breakfast@Cafe Strudel****located in the historic Mill Village neighborhood of WestCAE.


Good biscuits and interesting atmosphere where one can purchase the artworks hanging around. Appreciations to Linn for getting me to the airport in time.


Guess what I bought for US$29 🙂


Here we go again: CAE-ATL-MIA-FLL-OSL-SIN with 5days stop-over in OSL.

Uneventful and on times DL flights from CAE to MIA. Drive from MIA to FLL airport was rather stressful on a Fri rush hour traffic with a couple to bad accidents on I-95. Interesting cloud formations&trees on this drive which manage to divert my mind.

On a full plane from FLL-OSL.
