outlet shopping at Citadel

all 3 of them suffered from jet lag...woke up at 3am and had a 'meeting' in the living room, tried to go back to sleep and then woke up again at 5am again while i slept like a log throughout and got myself adjusted to local timing the very next day... wahahahaha.... 

At brekkie place 1 - Starbucks

having a tall caramel macchito at usd$3.75 at 6am in the morning...


picked up the 1st batch of starbucks gift cards for PTL and Alvin... hope to find more different designs at the different outlets.



Sleepy head 3 with my spects at brekkie place 2 - subway


bought 3 subway cookies at usd$1.50 as my breakfast

headed to supermarket to stock up on bottled water before our drive out of los angeles




a carton of 24 bottles of 500ml water cost usd$3.99 after adding in the crv tax...

Alvin requested for sweets so this pack of jelly beans at usd$2.30 shall be the first out of the many that i got for the 3 As to share....




self-check-out system ... scan, slot cash, collect change




 fun!!!!!


Anyway, this supermarket was located at Hollywood Blv, right next to the avenue of stars!!!!



din have time to explore the stars one by one so just took a pic of one of the few that i know.... wahahahaha..... 





first official activity of the trip.... outlet shopping!!!!!



the whole Los Angeles / California state was lined with this species of tree

clean and pretty toilets they have... 😍😍😍


selfie time... 


do remember to pop by the customer service counter to collect the vip card... participating outlets will allow customers to enjoy further discount on top of the sale they offer

tax at this outlet is at 9.5%.... and was upset to find out that COACH is not one of the participating outlets.... so no additional discount... but still, managed to help ζ΄ͺ mama got her bag, original price at usd$268 at a terrific discount... =) 


Her criteria - not too big, not too small, best to be just nice for a water bottle, an umbrella and some space for wallets + phone.... =) 

bought a cardholder, original price usd$78, for Mr Ang... to be ready for his new job as a Sales and Application Engineer... =) 


bought lanyards, original price usd$48 each, for michelle and mab



Anyway, we only spent 4 hours at this outlet as we needed to make our way to our next destination, which was 4 to 5 hours drive away, so that we would reach before the sky got too dark....

 lunch was a simple fare at the food court where i paid usd$12 for this gigantic plate of grilled shrimp fried rice.... so so only though...


 awesome pics of the view along the drive to our next destination



highway lanes set aside just to encourage carpooling... 



 metal 'cows'...


sunset lo.....



 and then it's VEGAS!!!!
