Hoa's sisters in town -10/22/2011
Orange county-Day 1
Hoa's 3 sisters flew from Paris to be in town just for a short week! Mai and Thierry are attending a convention and Cang and Chi Be are just tagging along. This is the first visit for Cang and she wanted to visit her daughter's mother in law in Los Angeles so Hoa decided to drive them down just for the weekend.
They left at 6:00AM in the morning on Saturday and arrive Orange county around noon time just in time for lunch and shopping. First stop is Phuoc Loc Tho an Asian Garden Mall located in Westminster, California. Phuc Loc Tho is and indoor mall in the central of the Vietnamese community area known as Little Saigon. Every Vietnamese tourists have to stop by this mall for jewelry shopping, clothes, dvd's, food, etc... They also have lots of casual little eatery such as Pho, sandwiches, Vietnamese coffee so the man can hang out while the ladies are shopping.

Dinner at Sea Food Cove
It is a tradition for us, each we are in Orange County, we all have to stop by at Sea food Cove for a feast. They served authentic Chinese sea food at their price is so reasonable.
Portions are huge and my cousin know the owner so we always get great service and they always give us extra food.
