Today was really a beautiful sunny day. It was about 70 degrees outside! Very warm, bright and breezy day :). Sky is blue, and I can see the cloud on the sky. Why I seemed so happy with the blue sky etc, because most of times what we have grey and cloudy sky only at here :(. Seattle is Indonesia's Bogor, a rainy city!! So, today my hubby and I went to 2 beaches. First, we went to Redondo Beach. The view is really beau there, but unfortunately, we can't stop by there cos there's no parking area :(. So, my hubby took me to another beach, Dash Point Stated Park. This one is smaller than Redondo Beach. But the good thing, we can have BBQ here (oughhh.....it really reminds me to East Coast @ Singapore).
When we arrived there are lots of people already. Most of them BBQ-ing *hmmm....they gave me an idea for my dinner :)*. We spent few hours there. Luckily, I brought my camera so I took lots of pics there....(I'll share with you later).
After we are tired and hungry, we came home. As soon as we arrived home, I rushed prepare our dinner. I choosed a simple but tasty dinner, so I made Sweet and Sour Fish Ball Steak :). It was a fusion between East and West dish. West, cos we ate it with carrot, green beans and french fries :). East, cos it tasted sweet and sour :).
Beside the good taste, if you want a simple food, you can try this at home :).
