Saturday morning the sky was clear, no clouds and the air was crisp. It looked like the makings of a beautiful sunrise.
We met some of my aunties and uncles at Sam Choy BLC (Breakfast, Lunch & Crab) for breakfast.
Every year about this time, my aunty on the mainland sends some monies to another aunty for my dad's birthday breakfast. (Thank you!)
I was surprised at how slow business was there and how high prices have gone. I had the fried rice with 2 eggs (US $6.50 + tax). The fried rice has pretty much everything in there (spam, lup cheong, char siu, kamaboko, green onion). This dish was really filling and delicious. It was nice to be able to take my leftovers home. (In Japan, they don't have "doggie bags", for fear of food poisoning complaints.)
It was nice to be able to visit with some of my relatives on this trip home, while celebrating my dad's birthday.
