2 siblings who passed away in the same week

Posted by Sailorgirlfriend.com on Thursday, June 26, 2014,
I have a wonderful boss. She is like another mother who I wish was my own. She took me under her right wing and treats me like family. She gave me my own office and made sure I was set up to succeed. 

Well, this week, 2 of her siblings died unexpectedly. As she was flying to another state to attend her sister's funeral, her brother passed away. I couldn't even imagine it. I feel sick to my stomach thinking about it. I've already sent my condolences earlier this week when her sister passed away...

World of Coca Cola in Atlanta, Georgia was a wonderful experience

Posted by Sailorgirlfriend.com on Sunday, June 15, 2014,
When we went to the World of Coca Cola in Atlanta, Georgia, it became the highlight of my entire 4 day, 3 night stay! It felt like Disneyland. With the Coca Cola theme song playing in the background at all times, it really makes you realize what an amazing brand Coca Cola has been for over 100 years. There's so much nostalgia value. You learn the history and the invention of Cola Cola, how it turned into a big business and how it is now an international brand. You also get to try 65 flavors. ...

Yard House Atlanta - You call that a Spicy Tuna Roll?

Posted by Sailorgirlfriend.com on Tuesday, June 10, 2014, In : Atlanta 
We went to the Yard House in Atlanta to get home appetizers and cool down from the hot weather in June. They had the spicy tuna roll as one of their appetizers on their menu. I just want to warn you guys that it's not the typical Japanese spicy tuna roll that you would expect. See my picture below. It is a rather large entree so you could really just eat this as your meal. It was good but I think they put too much avocado in it. If you like that sort of thing, you might want to order it.

Big Wong BBQ inside the Hong Kong Supermarket Mall in Norcross, GA near Atlanta

Posted by Sailorgirlfriend.com on Monday, June 9, 2014, In : Atlanta 
We were really impressed with the Hong Kong Supermarket Mall in the Atlanta Area (5495 Jimmy Carter Blvd
NorcrossGA 30093
). It not only is a huge supermarket, it has small shops inside with bakeries and other restaurants too. I wanted to get some Roast Pork with the crunchy rind on the outside and went to Big Wong BBQ. It was probably the best I've ever had. 

This is how the front of their place looks like inside of Hong Kong Supermarket.


This is the Roast Pig that I got. Get the Roast Pig, ...

Dua Vietnamese Noodle Soup Restaurant in Atlanta, Georgia - Sailorgirlfriend.com Review

Posted by Sailorgirlfriend.com on Monday, June 9, 2014, In : Atlanta 
We wanted to find a Vietnamese restaurant that was closest to the hotel that we were staying at in downtown and our map linked us to Dua Vietnamese Noodle Soup (53 Broad St NW, Atlanta, GA 30303). It had good reviews and it was only within walking distance from the Hilton Garden Inn Downtown Atlanta. When we got there around 7pm, we've discovered that it had already closed. I guess a lot of the businesses on that street closes at 6pm or something for some reason? 

Anyway, we tried the next day...

Lee's Bakery in Atlanta Georgia - Sailor Girlfriend Review

Posted by Sailorgirlfriend.com on Sunday, June 8, 2014, In : Atlanta 
We went to Lee's Bakery (4005 Buford Hwy NE, Atlanta, GA 30345) for the first time when we were visiting the town. It was so busy. It took us 15 minutes before we were able to put in our orders. A lot of people dined in as well. They serve soups and Vietnamese banh mi sandwiches with the special offer of "Buy 5 get 1 Free" for those taking banh mis to go. 

We ordered 2 special banh mi, 3 grilled pork and 1 grilled chicken. I do not recommend getting the grilled chicken. I highly recommend the ...

Canton House in Atlanta - Sailor Girlfriend Review

Posted by Sailorgirlfriend.com on Sunday, June 8, 2014, In : Atlanta 
We needed to fulfill our dim sum craving so my husband looked on yelp for recommended dim sum in the Atlanta area. We headed to Canton House and we did not regret it. Their dim sum was delicious. Every thing was so fresh and service was attentive. The ladies here looked like they are always in a rush though. I recommend the shrimp rice rolls, pork siu mai, har cow for the novice but everything else tasted great too. Here are some pictures of the restaurant and our food below.

Furthermore, they have a very delicious seafood restaurant that is attached to the property called Legal Sea Foods. See a collage of our hotel stay and ...

3 Things I Wish Someone Told Me About the First Months for a Baby

Posted by Sailorgirlfriend.com on Sunday, June 8, 2014, In : Motherhood 
As a first time mother of a 4 month old baby, I've learned so many things about taking care of a baby. However, there are certain things I wish I knew so I could make a better decisions about some of these things early on.
1. Flat Heads 
Every reading source and and health professional would tell me to put my baby on his back to prevent SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome). What they didn't tell me is that this can cause flat heads. I noticed my baby started getting a flat side on the back of hi...

Use a sturdy cardboard box to make an end table

Posted by Sailorgirlfriend.com on Saturday, June 7, 2014, In : DIY 
I like to keep boxes around the house because I always end up using them for storage or shipping something to a friend. I don't want to buy boxes when I can reuse the ones that I get from getting things shipped to me. My husband thinks that I'm weird that I hoard these boxes but they really come into great use! 

I got creative one day and realized I needed an end table for our bedroom near my closet. I didn't want to go out and buy one and I recently got a sturdy cardboard boxed in the mail. I...
