Zinger likes to play Angry Birds. There is a Christmas edition out. Nobody downloaded on her iPhone yet. She is waiting. Seems like she has been waiting for many things lately. She doesn't like it.
Zinger's lips need lip service. She has been waiting for weeks. Why is it taking so long? She doesn't like it.

San Francisco Baking Company makes some fine pastries. Zinger had biscotti which was more like raspberry pastries than biscotti. But it was good. Zinger cannot show the picture of the pastries because she ate them all. Hmm... what else does this bakery have? Zinger wants to try them all. She likes it.

Any good bakery in Kauai? Yes, Moon Rising Bakery makes very yummy Hawaiian Sweet Pineapple bread. Big soft sweet bread. Very very tasty. They also have excellent banana bread with chocolate chips. Sweet and full of banana flavor. She likes it.
JPP has a new location inside Aria in Vegas. Right next to the elevator. Great location. And the almond croissant is world class. So buttery and flaky. It's Zinger's favorite almond croissant. Zinger is such a lucky cylinder and she got to enjoy one right after her birthday. Her post-birthday sweet. Anyone going to Vegas soon? Please bring back more JPP sweets for Zinger. She likes it.
Zinger likes 7-11 in Hawaii ( and Taiwan too ). They sell very tasty snacks. The promo in Kauai is $1 Fried Rice and Egg Musubi. Fried rice with lap cheuong sausage and topped with a slice of egg omelet. Very good and especially for one buck!!!. Can't beat that. The shoyu tuna roll is always good. And the new item is Kimchee tako poke sushi roll. A little spicy and good. Zinger doesn't eat these snacks ( because she only eats sweets ) but she heard they are good. She approves them herself. She likes it.
The weather was very cold during Thanksgiving week. At night, it was in the 30's. Luckily Zinger got a Northface Cat's Meow mummy sleeping bag. It's rated 20 degree. Zinger really needed it. She and Monchichai kept themselves warm in the sleeping bag. She likes it.
The Kauai Malasadas stand's business hours are very laid back. Saturday - optional. Why is Saturday optional. What if Zinger wants to eat malasadas on Saturday? And this place opens Mon ~ Fri about 10a. Why "about" ? Zinger doesn't like it.
PukaDog is a hotdog stand in the Poipu Shopping Village. This place sells only hotdogs and comes with some very good relishes that you don't see elsewhere, like mango relish, coconut relish, pineapple relish, and even banana relish. The bun is not sliced but is is pierced by a hot hotdog sized metal rod. The bun is toasted for a couple of minutes wrapped around the hot rod. Choice of secret sauce, relish and mustard ( they even have Lilikoi mustard ) are pumped into the hole in the bun and then the hot dog is inserted, topped with more secret sauce. Although Zinger doesn't eat hotdogs, but she approves. She likes it.

Zinger's house got broken in. The burglar threw a rock at the sliding door glass and completely shattered it. The burglar then tried to open the sliding door and that set off the alarm. Zinger was very scared. Huggabear was awoken from her hibernation. All the smithies hid under the bed. Police officers came and did a walk-thru of the house. Looks like nothing was stolen and no monkey, cylinder and creatures were kidnapped. Cousins' $60 cash and two piggy banks are safe. Burglars are scary. Zinger is scared and she needs to eat lots of sweets to calm her nerve. Zinger doesn't like it.

Zinger celebrated her pre-birthday dinner @Charlie Ayers' restaurant Calafia. Sea scallops wrapped in bacon was excellent. Holy Zinger!!! These are the biggest scallops. They were at least 2" in diameter and 2" thick. BBQ pulled pork bowl was very tasty also. A little bit spicy and excellent flavor. Comes with yam cubes and spinach and topped with a sunnyside up quail egg. Zinger didn't try them because she is a Sweetarian ( A vegetarian who only eats sweets ). But she approved of the dishes. For Zinger, she got an apple galette with vanilla bean ice cream. Warm apple fillings with flakey crust. And rich and creamy vanilla ice cream. Yummy!! There were no ding-dongs in the bakery case. Maybe next time. Calafia has a smoothie named Zazzle Zinger. Charlie must have named it after Zinger. She saw Charlie Ayers busy in the open kitchen so Zinger didn't want to bother him. Zinger was a very happy cylinder and enjoyed her sweet dessert. She likes it.

Coffee cakes, anyone? Sure!! Zinger loves coffee cakes. She had Whole Foods blueberry and raspberry coffee cakes. Both are very good, especially the crunchy sweet toppings. Absolutely delicious. Zinger likes the corner pieces the best because they have more crust. She likes it.

Someone got a ticket for parking @handicap parking space. And this was when the person was not far from the parking space and can see the car. As the parking enforcement officer was about to give a ticket, the driver came and explain that it was only temporary and will remove the car. But the parking enforcement officer insisted on giving the ticket. The price tag is......$275. Fremont City is a cash hungry place. Officer Rosette, parking officer are all bad sour people. No sweets for them. Zinger cannot park her pillow in a handicap parking space. Zinger cannot tint her pillow. She doesn't like it.

Cousins made some reduced sugar pumpkin corn muffins. Zinger was going to try some but when she found out they are reduced sugar version, she didn't want to eat them. Cousins said they are the healthy muffins. Healthy muffins and reduced sugar? Healthy and reduced sugar don't go together. What healthy muffins should have less sugar? Less sugar means no good. She doesn't like it.

Monchichai brought her can to dealer to repair the flat tire and for the valve spring recall. She got a courtesy car. Guess what, the courtesy car got a flat tire also!!!! The dealer sent a technician out to put the full size spare time on the car. Great service which Zinger likes. But 2 flat tires in 3 days, she doesn't like it.

Last month, Zinger had eaten Stan's donuts but they didn't taste like Stan's. She wanted to confirm whether Stan's has changed their recipe. So she needed to try their donuts before she decided whether Stan's should still be in her Donuts Hall of Fame. Well, she had Stan's donuts again and was happy to say that they still taste as good as before. Stan's donuts. She likes it.

Zinger has been sharing her bed with her bear friend and Monchichai. The bear occupies most of the bed, so that leaves only one area for Zinger to park. In the middle of the night. Zinger got launched and landed on the floor on her side with no clothes on. All her clothes fell on Cousins. She wants to find a different location to park tonight. She doesn't like it.
Cousins got some special delivery of very fresh black cod. The fish were nice thick fillets with no skin nor bones. Cousins liked it that they didn't have to clean the fish themselves. The fish fillets were big that they scared Cousins initially when they saw the package. The fish had no fishy smell so Cousins like it. The fish was so fresh and tasted very good. As everyone knows that Zinger doesn't eat fish. She doesn't know how good the fish was but the comments she heard from those who consumed the fish were all very positive. Pan fry it with some ginger and soy sauce made an excellent dish. Zinger likes it.

Last week, someone gave Zinger a glazed raised donut and a cinnamon roll from Stan's Donuts without telling her where the donuts were from. Zinger ate the donuts and they were good but she didn't think they tasted like Stan's Donuts. Then she found out that those were Stan's Donuts. But those donut's didn't look nor taste like Stan's. They were not as dense and the texture was not the same as before. Has Stan's donuts changed their recipe? She needs to try their donut again to confirm this. She doesn't like it.
Today is Zinger's first day back to work. But there is no donuts to celebrate it. She doesn't like it.

Today is another hot day. To keep her cylinder cool, Zinger wants a giant popsicle the size of her cylinder. She is waiting....... She doesn't like it.

This is a picture from more than a month ago. Zinger has been on vacation and didn't get a change to post this one. Look at all the sweets. She got cupcakes, whoopie pie and scones and cookies. No wonder Zinger is such a sweet cylinder. She like it.

It has been a long while since Zinger had Stan's Donuts. After the big disappointment of no donuts on National Donut Day, Zinger got a surprise donut from Stan's Donut shop. That was an excellent donut. Flappers up for Stan's Donut. She likes it.
June 4th was National Donut Day. Zinger wanted to celebrate it by eating donuts. But she waited and waited until mid-night. No donuts came. She was very disappointed. She doesn't like it.
June 4 was the National Donut day. That's one of Zinger's favorite day of the year. The day before this very important day, Zinger got a big crumb cinnamon roll donut. It's a big donut. But never too big nor too much for Zinger. Zinger said the donut was okay. She gave it a 5.5 donuts rating out of possible 10. She was looking forward to more donuts on June 4th. She likes it.

It has been a while since Zinger had some cakes and look what she got. She got a carrot cake with sweet cream cheese frosting and a small piece of lemon tart ( Why so small? Who ate most of the whole tart? ) She likes them both. They are from Flourchylde Bakery in Novato. Zinger wants to visit the bakery some day. She likes it.

Whoopee, Whoopee, Whoopee!!!! More Whoopee pies. Zinger received a box of whoopee pies. But when she looked the label on the box, it says Inside Out Carrot Cake. But Zinger believes they should be called Whoopee Pies because that's what they look like. She ate one and it is very good, especially the cream cheese fillings. She likes it.

Taco truck that serves Korean BBQ meat in tacos and burritos. Zinger had to go check out this Mogo taco truck that's been gaining loyal followers around South Bay. Zinger doesn't eat meats so she didn't try it. But she checked out the truck and the foods they served. Pretty good is what Zinger sees. The only thing Zinger would recommend to them is to update their truck and make it stand out apart from other taco trucks. Flavorful meats. She likes it.
Whoopee, whoopee, Whoopee!!! They are finally here. Chocolate cake-like cookies with creamy vanilla fillings!!! Just what Zinger has been waiting for. These are some sweet and chewy desserts. See how high Zinger can stack the whoopee pies!!! Very tasty also. She likes it.
Zinger got one "basic cupcake" . It came in a cupcake holder that can hold 2 cupcakes. But Zinger only saw one cupcake in the box. And the label says "Basic Cupcake". Where is the other cupcake? Did someone eat it? Why missing one cupcake? The cupcake is a basic white cupcake. Very plain. And a bit dry. Hmm..... Zinger doesn't understand why only one cupcake in a box that holds 2 cupcakes. And why only basic cupcake, no fancy one? She doesn't like it.
