Costco Shopping

Nothing Special – just a lot of vegetables and toilet paper. 

I went to Costco during my lunchtime. I went in and out quickly.

I ate a hot dog before shopping. Then I saved the soda cup. After loading my car, I got a refill for the road.

I am back

Just so you know..
I am back from Alaska Cruise

The trip was a gift from my parents. I could never afford a cruise like this. It was a once-in-a-lifetime experience for all of us.

I don’t want to brag about it much, but it was fun. And I needed a vacation. I took a helicopter ride to a glacier; I took a water plane ride to a crab house, and I ate a lot of fresh crabs. Oh my God, the crab was amazing.

There was a group of Amish people at the cruise. I thought that was funny. Then I got “shunned” by Amish people. They would talk to my friend, but they wouldn’t talk to me.

I learned about Amy Winehouse’s death when I was in Canada.

I came home Sunday at 11 pm. I need to sleep and get ready for work tomorrow. Now I shall work none-stop until I die.

I am going to Costco tomorrow.

Can’t Go Wrong with Whispering Chorus (music)

This blog is for lovers only. 

I came to this conclusion a long time ago that, for a love song, you cannot go wrong with any song that contains soft whispering background vocals.

If a girl doesn’t like any of these songs, I wouldn’t go out with her. Why even bother when she is that insensitive and dry? Here are a few examples of whispering songs from the top of my head. If you think of any other whispering songs, please let me know.


This is my favorite. Ah~ the memories of the ’90s

Randy Crawford – In my life


 Dr. Hook – Sharing the night together


Another oldie – This version is better than Sam Cooke’s original version. You know why? That’s right because it’s got a whispering chorus. That’s why.

Mickey Gilley ~ Bring It On Home To Me


Everyone loves this number

Gino Vannelli – I Just Wanna Stop


Keep your eyes open for Christmas items when you go to Costco. Christmas starts in Summer in Costco.


Sometimes it’s better not to tell you what happened.

But here’s a card.

Update 2021 – I knew almost everyone in my apartment complex at that time. I would wake up in the morning and walk out to the balcony, and people would say “Good morning, John” from left and right. Sometimes I would take a nap with the front door open… and my neighbor’s kid will wake me up. I knew all my neighbors’ pets. At that time, I did realize that I was living in a special moment. I did try to soak in as much as I could. I had so much fun being poor.

Costco Reusable Shopping Bags. Finally

I finally found reusable shopping bags. I’ve been looking and waiting for Costco shopping bags for over 2 years. I finally found them! Son of a dad, I found them.

The bags don’t say “Costco” anymore. They have a generic design.

They had 2 different bags.

  1. Insulated bag – $6.49 for each bag. It’s large.
  2. Old-fashioned bags – Pack of 4 (2 large & 2 medium) – $4.69/pack

The search is finally over. I bought plenty. Now I can start giving away the bags. When I bring gifts or something to my friends, I tell them to “keep the bag.” And they love it. Everyone loved the bag. They are so practical.

I like the insulated bags. I think $6.49 is a very good price.

These are regular shopping bags. Large size in the front, medium size in the back.

Insulated Shopping Bag – Big and practical.  I like it.

 This is the insulated bag.

Updated 2021 – I still use the insulated bag.
