Fist Bump

Jul
02

I had a lot of fun visiting Costco in Atlanta, Georgia.  Now it was time for me to fly back home to California.  I got on board and took my window seat on the left side.  Soon, a beautiful young woman set next to me on the middle seat.  I told her she can use the armrest between us.  I said, "And I will not talk to you.  I may give you a fist bump after we landed."  She smiled back.

A few minutes later her boyfriend came and set next to her on the aisle seat.  I felt little awkward that I didn't know she was with her boyfriend.  But, I did tell her that I will not talk to her.  So...

It was a 4 hours flight from Atlanta to Los Angeles.  The Sun was still up and we flew by some beautiful clouds.  I watched Harry Potter and Sound of Music on my iPad.  The couple next to me talked for an hour, took a nap, and the girl played games on her smartphone.  I caught her occasionally on the corner of my eye.  She was tall and good looking.  If she was my girl, I would worship her.

And, of course, I didn't talk to her.

We finally landed but it took extra time getting to the gate.  The pilot turned off the "No seatbelt" signs, and people started to stand up and reach for their luggages.

Her boyfriend stood up and turned his back on her for a short time.  At that exact moment she quickly turned to me with a big smile.  

And gave me a fist bump.

Costco Coupons May 7 - May 31, 2015

May

Costco coupon book is out.  I see a lot of good stuff to buy this month.

If you are a dog owner check out NUBZ (edible) dog chew.  I have a few bags of these that the PR people sent me.  I gave them to 4 dogs so far? All 4 dogs loved them.  It's supposed to be good for their teeth.  So far all dogs went crazy over NUBZ even before I took it out from the package.  Since then, I gave NUBZ to the same dogs a few more times.  They all enjoyed NUBZ every single time.  Cute...

It has good reviews from Amazon

They are $4 off during this coupon period.

Costco Shopping (Morning) April 12, 2015

Apr
12

I went to my local Costco at 10AM as they open the door Sunday morning.  I believe this was my first time shopping at Costco on Sunday morning.  Parking lot was almost full when they opened the door.  The place was packed in no time.  Long lines started to form right away.

There was a $20.00 coupon on Water Ridge kitchen faucet. I bought this exact faucet three months ago without a coupon ($78, 99).   So, today I bought the faucet at $58.99 and returned it on my old receipt for $78.99 back.  I brought a copy (print out) of my old receipt.  There was no issue using my print out receipt.

I like Doritos.  I like chips, period.  But, I rarely buy (eat) chips because they are bad for you.  There was $1.70 coupon on this bag of Doritos, so I made an exception today.

What you don't see in the picture is 2 cases of Perrier (24 bottles each).

Coupon saved $38.70

After shopping I had a hotdog for breakfast.

Visiting San Francisco Bay Area Costco - March 2015

Mar
29

March 2015

It was an exciting weekend.  I visited Costco in San Francisco Bay Area.  Flying from Burbank to Oakland was just about an hour.  I rarely leave my comfort zone.  It was exciting to face the unknown.

Friday: I arrived at San Francisco Bay area late evening. The first thing I noticed was that people seemed classier in San Francisco Bay Area.  We went to a fast food restaurant for a late night bite.  Young people working there were classier than what I was used to.  Later, a bunch of high-school kids walked in for Friday night fun.  It was a group of kids in mixed races.  They were all well behaved, quiet, and classy.  Throughout the weekend, I saw nothing but classy people.  People were different there.  It was strange, and I liked it.

Saturday: We took BART, a public transportation subway system, to down town San Francisco for lunch.  It was not busy because today was Saturday.  But, now I know how people in the Bay area commute to the big city every day.

I had a good, authentic Chinese food for lunch.  Then I learned that they didn't take credit cards. Pretty much all restaurants in China Town had "Cash Only" signs.

Sunday: We went to Costco in Danville (San Francisco Bay Area).  The entire warehouse looked familiar, except they had an insane amount of coffees.  They had about twice as many coffee varieties compared to Costco in my area.  For example, at my Costco we have Peet's coffee (Major Dickason's Blend).  At Danville Costco, they had Peet's Coffee AND Peet's Coffee Organic.  Most coffees had organic versions at extra cost. 

It was cool to see San Francisco Giant "World Series Champion" hoodies.  I felt the patriotism.

I didn't buy anything because I was flying back home in a few hours.

It was a glorious weekend I will never forget.  Good times..

Costco Shopping - March 25, 2015

Good times. :)

I went to Costco after work for a quick shopping, and I sampled this amazing fish stick.  "Please have some more," the lady said.  So, I took one more sample and took a bag home.

I thought garlic flavored olive oil was interesting.  I shall give it a try, but I like it already.

Costco pineapples are so good and so cheap.

I cut the rotisserie chicken in half and vacuum packed it for later (single life 101).  It's a lot of bird for one person that I often get sick of it half way through.  This vacuumed packed half chicken will be good for several months.

Palmolive dish soap is really good.  I compared Palmolive with cheaper brand.  Palmolive is thicker and stronger.. and it cleans more.  Cheaper brands are watered down.  They are quite frustrating.

Instant coupons saved $7.50.

*Photograph taken with iPhone.  iPhones take OK pictures.  But, picture quality is pretty bad compared to REAL cameras (any pocket camera).

Costco Shopping - March 13, 2015

Mar
13

It was a big shopping day at Costco.  I also did car wash and pumped gas in my car.

I bought staple items such as kitchen sponges, frozen foods, pancake mix, shampoo, conditioner, toilet papers, and laundry detergent.  They will last a few months. Kitchen sponges and pancake mix will last over a year.

Coupons saved $39.80

Frozen edamame & broccoli florets are quality food items.  They are tasty and ready to eat in a few minutes.  And they are good for you.  I would snack on these instead of potato chips. I try to make small effort here and there so I can enjoy healthy life-style.

I bought melatonin & Beano for the first time.  Lately I find myself traveling and sleeping over at strange places.  I shall try them and see if they will enhance my life-style.  (embarrassing).

I treated myself with turkey jerky.  Yum.
