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..
Who doesn’t like drinking hot cocoa on a chilly morning? On your way to Fort Worth, DD and I stopped at her favorite hamburger chain, In-N-Out, in Garland to eat brunch. It was still a bit chilly (temperature) in March (Spring Break). And I am not comfortable driving without taking anything warm or hot. So this hot cocoa was just perfect. And best of all, it was FREE. Yup, In-N-Out offered free hot cocoa that time. We used our free hamburger or cheeseburger coupons we received from the reading program at Smith Public Library (Wylie, TX). What a deal!
This year’s Spring Break was spent in Fort Worth. We visited all the attractions my DD planned of visiting.
Because we arrived quite early at the hotel, DD and I decided to go to the museum in Downtown Fort Worth. There were a few nice museums there but we agreed to go to the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History. Lots of interesting artifacts (replicas) from the dinosaur age are on display in the museum. We enjoyed the most is the history of ranching in Texas. DD and I were fascinated with the different breeds of cows. 🙂
It feels mind-refreshing to be in a museum. You will see exhibits that will fascinate you and will make you ask “did these really happen?”. You will learn lots of knowledge and ingenuity. The experience takes you to the past while you are living in the modern times-where the old and the new meet and you are in between.
Museums are one of the best learning resources for your children. You should visit at least one whenever you travel or when you are on vacation. You and your family will surely enjoy it. 🙂
