Where to Dine In When in New Boston, Texas

We just moved out here in the country 3 weeks ago. It’s a big step we had to take, it is my husband’s decision to move out here and make it as his retirement place. It is peaceful and quiet out here and everybody seems to love it and enjoy the surroundings and all.

But, I on the other hand, is longing to go to my favorite stores to just you know hang out and pass time. I may eventually get used to driving 33 minutes to get to the mall, as long as I can buy the basics nearby, I guess I will be fine.

On a lighter note, we found a Chinese buffet restaurant in New Boston, Texas. I am delighted to know that I can just go there and have a taste for Asian food anytime I want since it is not very far from us. We did not expect much for a small town Asian restaurant. I have read reviews about them on Facebook before visiting them last week.

We were not disappointed, although buffet time was over when we got there. We thought that this place served tasty food. We ordered from the menu and plenty of dishes to choose from. We ordered beef broccoli, sweet and sour beef, sweet and sour chicken and shrimp. My children said they loved their food and so did my husband.

The restaurant was quiet and there were only us and another solo customer who dined in at the time, a few ordered to-go. I expected for a crowd but no, it is not in the city anymore so I must get used to going to places like this to be quiet and lots of empty chairs. Prices of food are okay.

Quality of food they serve is 8 out of 10. Ambiance is 7. Food server is 9, she was nice and kept asking if we were okay or if we needed anything. Overall, our visit to China Cafe in New Boston, Texas was a calm and pleasant experience.

I recommend this place to those who love Asian food. You can’t go wrong with this place, it’s good.

A Car is a Necessity

Sponsored post. All things written here are by me.

Growing up in a third world country, never in my wildest dreams that I could learn how to drive much more own a car. Thanks to my husband who provided me with transportation. Back then, those who have cars were rich, at least that was what our impressions of people who owned cars.

But then, when I got here in America ten years ago, I discovered that cars are a necessity for everyone in order to get to and from their destinations, in order for them to function and go to work daily, running errands and the many uses of cars. It is also here in America where I get to see so many makes/models, types and body styles of cars just like what we can see on Cars.com. This website is a good site to be when it comes to searching for new model cars, looking for trade-in, buying used cars, do-it-yourself repair, repair and service and many other useful information one should want to know anything about cars.

Speaking about cars, I’d like to share mine which my husband bought for me two years ago. It’s a 2006 Lexus RX330. We bought it used and only had 60,000 mileage on it. So smooth to drive and we are totally loving it, suitable for long distance drive. This car pretty much serves its purpose for we have driven it to and from DFW metroplex and small town in East Texas feeling comfortable in those trips.

What’s yours peeps?

5 Tips for buying a gorgeous engagement ring

Getting engaged is one of the most memorable moments in one’s life. There’s nothing like the promise of forever after all.

But for future fiancés, the hunt for the perfect engagement ring might prove to be tedious. Not only do you have to think about the size and design, but there are also the technical aspects of choosing an engagement ring. Not to mention that there are thousands of designs available on the market today. It might get confusing and overwhelming for people who are not ready for the hours you need to spend perusing through so much information.

If you are thinking of getting engaged soon, here are some handy tips to that you can follow to make sure that you will be able to get a gorgeous engagement ring for your future fiancée.

  1. Spend time on your decision – don’t put off going to the jewelry store to the last minute. Some spend weeks and even months studying up on engagement rings. If you are going for a custom design, it would also need more time. So you need to plan and manage your time perfectly when deciding on the engagement ring to buy.
  2. Research on your future fiancee’s style – since they will be the one wearing the ring, you need to make sure that you choose a style that they are sure to love. Think of yourself as a detective and peruse through her social media accounts to check if she has liked or posted anything that could help you. You can also look through her present jewelry collection to find similar styles. Better yet, you can ask for the opinion of her best gal pals to help you in making your choice.
  3. Make sure you have the right size – all the work and research will be for nothing if the ring won’t fit right. So make it easier for yourself and just get one of her old rings to know her size. If that is not possible, ask one of her friends to help you out without spilling anything of course.
  4. Study up on the 4C’s – if you’re determined to have a diamond engagement ring, then you need to know more about the four C’s that determines a diamond’s quality. They are color, cut, clarity, and carat. If you want your ring to have all four, be prepared to spend a lot of money. But if you have a limited budget, many jewelers would suggest getting the best cut grade, as this aspect determines the diamond’s sparkles.
  5. Go to a trusted jeweler – big decisions like this are important investments so you need to make sure that the jeweler you are talking to is someone you can trust. Find someone you can have an easy conversation with, and who would consider your budget and preferences. Picking an engagement ring is easy with a company like Dominion Jewelers. They have 30 years of experience and can ensure quality engagement rings for your future spouse.

It just looks fabulous and fashionable and it shows my character when it comes to fashion.
