Fall Break Road Trip 2019

It was a very nice vacation spent in Arkansas. Lots of driving (me the whole time) but it was a great experience. We went to visit caves in Eureka Springs and drove through the Ozark National Forest on our way to Russellville and spent the night there before heading home the next day. DD got a “motion sickness” for a bit while we were driving through the Ozark mountain’s winding roads. We were in the forest for a while. 😀

Fall Breaks falls on the same time when The Great State Fair of Texas is happening. We get free tickets to the State Fair but we’re not able to go because the family has other plans since my DD started school. So we had to give the free tickets away to friends or family who needs them.



Delicious Foods At Mango Thai

Salad

My first time dining at Mango Thai Cuisine in Plano (TX) yesterday did not disappoint. The restaurant was located on West Park Blvd. and Preston Road. My girl friends ate lunch here after shopping.

It was a small place but it had a neat setting inside. The crew were looking sharp in their simple uniform. They were attentive and the service was fast.

The food selection is impressive. I am not that familiar with Thai foods so I just ordered something that I used to get whenever I eat at an Asian restaurant–chicken curry. I ordered Yellow Curry with Chicken. My friend R had Green Curry with Chicken while K ordered Lard and rice and extra Spring Rolls. They will prepare the food according to the spice level preferred. I told the server to make my Chicken Curry in spice level Mild.

Their lunch special is very affordable. And Happy Hours start at 2:00 P.M..

Lots of wine and drinks selection.

In-Store Visit Not Impressed

My girl friends and I went to Plano yesterday to check Nordstrom Rack located on Preston Road. We have been wanting to visit the place. We planned the trip since Monday but some important matter arose. Anyway, we finally get to the store. We looked around and checked their apparel, shoes, accessories, and cosmetics for sale. Their ad says they sell discounted prices on the merchandise on clearance. But most of the items on clearance are still pricey. I wasn’t impressed. The location is great but inside the store, to me, is not quite organized.

You have to spend a lot of time browsing each aisle or department if you want to find the cheap merchandise you want.
