#ChicSassyMomEats | Tyme for Tea & Co.

Hello, hello! I've been MIA 🤦🏻‍♀️, oh well, but I'm back. I'm charmed with Tyme for Tea, I had the loveliest time.

Lovely tearoom. 
All pink, and flowery. The tea sets, oh my, to die for. You ought to know I love tea and tea sets (that, thanks to my big affinity to English Royalty Novels, I dream of prince and dukes way before Korean flower boys).

Tea party for two.
Fascinator hats to play the part. 
It's truly an enchanting place and experience. There's an added country feel to the place. It's warm and cozy. It's a welcome new experience from my usual favorite TWG's Manila tearooms and boutiques, which are so regal, glittering and so modern.

Grand Sparkling Victorian Tea sounds enchanting. 
Keep calm, and drink champagne and tea. Best of both worlds. 🥂
I'm discovering the art of mixing and matching tea set patterns. Before I used to think that they need to be a set of everything from the teapots to the cups, down to the creamer and sugar bowl. I truly need to go to London, and visit the Queen. Hah.

Afternoon tea time. There's cucumber sandwich too. Awwww. Love, love, love. 
Such a delightful treat. Tyme for Tea & Co. is located in the picturesque Niles District in Fremont. The adjacent antique stores perfect the whole setting for memorable connections with family and friends.


When I think of tea, everything's fine, and now I know where to go when I get overly dramatic and sad (thank you, Korean and Chinese dramas). Haha. More drama. I can't wait to visit the Queen. Cheers! ;-D

Tyme for Tea & Co.  is located along 37501 Niles Blvd.  Fremont, CA. 94536 , telephone no. (510) 790-0944,

#ChicSassyMomEats | Fish & Chips 😋

Hello, hello! Let's eat.

One of Chaseyboy's favorite dish when dining out is fish and chips. As always, there are hits and misses...how the fish taste fishy (not fresh), or sometimes, the batter or doneness is off.

It's just great to finally make it at home with the right brands.

Fish and Chips 😋🐟🍟
For easy peasy fish and chips, sharing with you our favorite french fries and fish fillet brands. Presenting...DIY Fish and Chips.

Gorton's Beer Battered Fish Fillets of Wild-Caught Pollock sells in Lucky Supermarket for $7.99 with seasonal deal of $5 or Buy 1, Take 1

Instant fish and chips. Yum. Lovely! ;-D




#SaleTime | Annyeong, Fall Fashion!🍁 #Abercrombie + #Nike + Twinning with #LeeJoonGi 😉

Annyeong, cinggu! 🤗

Sidestory. Awww,  can't get enough of G-Dragon's Missing You because of last time's #MOTTEinManila. #LSS I'm missing Seoul. I'm missing Manila's fangirling opportunities. Oh my, my, my, from KDrama fangirl to KPop, welcome to my world...good luck!

Anyhow, my consolation prize....shopping opportunities here and there. Hah. There's so much coupons, sale announcement, etc. when in California. Non-stop. I kid you not. More often than not. I'm so easy to get.

Near us, we have The Great Mall in Milpitas, which is an indoor outlet shopping mall, and we have the Westfield Valley Fair in San Jose, which is an upscale indoor shopping mall. But wait, there's more...there's also the San Francisco Premium Shopping Outlet in Livermore. Hmmmm. Regardless of shopping destinations, additional discounts are not hard to come by. Sign up online for free, and voila...hello, additional discounts (even for outlet stores on already discounted items) and $ off! On good times, like today's Labor Day weekend, most stores in Westfield (regular stores not outlet so more choices and updated designs) are giving out additional 40-50% off. If you hurriedly answer the surveys, you get additional $10 off. This offsets the high sales tax. This comforts me, hahaha, I'm not so easy to get after all, I don't buy out of whims, instead I patiently wait for good deals. Hah. 🤦🏻‍♀️

One fun shopping day at The Great Mall. Shopping Finds...Polo Ralph Lauren , Bath & Body Works, Twinning with Chaseyboy with Nike Air Uptempo 
It's love at first try with Adidas Superstar. Knowing myself, I'll be tempted (soon) to get those cult favorites, NMD. Well, it can't be Nike all the time. But since hubby is buying... Nike, it is. If you follow me on IG @chicsassymom , I like twinning shoes with Chaseyboy. So when he got this Nike Air More Uptempo for his school shoes, I was okay to get the matching black/pink. Hubby was so happy to indulge. But there's more to it... hahaha

This pair reminds me so much of Lee Joon Gi oppa. #OnceaFangirlAlwaysaFangirl #Twinning 😉
#OOTD #Abercrombie #JoesJeans #Givenchy
Because, just maybe, Lee Joon Gi oppa also likes girls that wear Abercrombie and Fitch. 😂
Eenie, Meenie, Miney, Mo...which Abercrombie coat/jacket to get? Hmmmm 🤔
 It's still so warm today. It's too soon to get thick coats and jacket. I went for a light camouflage vest for easy transition to Fall. Originally at $90++ less additional $40 off less $10 off
Abercrombie Kids for Chaseyboy. He's ready for Fall. Please come sooner. 
We can't wait for summer to end, with three summer months in Manila and then more summer months in California, oh my. I'm too scared of age spots skin cancer with over sun exposure. Personally, fashion wise, summer is the hardest look to pull off. I only like Fall and Winter Fashion, which are reminiscent of my Seoul-ful vacay. Autumn in my heart. Cheers! ;-D

About Me

My photo

Wifey to JB and Mommy to Chasey :) It's said that one's eyes are windows to one's soul. True! My eyes twinkle when I'm happy, they light up with my smile. I’m no frills! I'm easy to read (except during Poker). I easily get teary eyed on practically both happy and sad things. I'm overly emotional! UP,Toy Story 3, and Glee made me cry with delight.My hubby is my source of strength. He balances that side of my personality. He made me a more self-reliant person.I love being a mom. But be it known that I tend to be OC, paranoid, and definitely see my self as a stage mom.I can't help but throw him parties every year.I love to read. If there is a lifetime membership to Book Lover's Club, I've probably signed in as early as Grade 1. I'm blessed to have a special relationship with God. He is my confidante. I practically talked to him anywhere and anytime about anything. I'm a Kapampangan and supposedly known for having culinary skills.This still needs to be found perfected, but for sure, I can say I'm a gourmand!I love to eat and it shows!Oh well!Beauty is in the Eye of the Beholder and Happiness is only a state of mind. From today onwards, I intend to live in a Happy Mode!Cheers!
