An SF list

June 15, 2009

Still no time so here is another list. This time of the things I did in my weekend off in San Francisco.

  1. Shared pepperoni pizza.  Going ghetto in a tailored suit.
  2. A crustless (urg.  the best bit!!)  cheesecake at The Cheesecake Factory at Union Square.  Awesome view.  Cold though.
  3. Farmer’s market at the Ferry Building.  Losing J to the almond brittle stall.  Having breakfast over 2h.  Chocolate and bits of cheese and fruit.
  4. Crab cake.  Twice in 1 day.  I think I’m changing my mind about crab cake.
  5. A long long long walk along the Embarcadero and through the super touristy Fisherman’s Wharf.  Getting distracted by a stuffed toy/blanket giraffe.
  6. Not getting on the cruise out to Alcatraz.  Next time, book it in ADVANCE!  (esp for the night time cruise).
  7. Pier 39 sea lions.  Some of them were really aggressive!  The rest were just sunning themselves lazily.
  8. Strawberries on a park bench!  Yum yum.
  9. Resisting ice cream at Ghiradelli square.  1 Cheryl 0 Chocolate shop.  Learning about the chocolate making process.  Apparently the beans are ground at such a high speed that the friction causes them to melt.
  10. Breakfast food for dinner at the The Buena Vista – the birthplace of Irish Coffee.  A serendipitous find.  Sun setting over the Golden Gate Bridge.
  11. The spy shop!  I wasn’t really there.  ;p
  12. Punchline Comedy Club.  Exfoliating and being stoned at a 4 way stop.
  13. Breakfast at Tartine.  Being very confused at the pastries on display.  Morning buns were yum.  (Found a recipe thanks to Google!)
  14. Handmade jewelry.  The pendant looked like it was made of jacks.  Pretty.
  15. Being too full to have more food even though the crepe shop down the street looked so good!
  16. Fun murals at the Mission.
  17. Shopping!!!  Probably overdid it at H&M.  And can someone explain to me why I bought *another* trench coat when I live in the tropics?!
  18. The discovery of the “100 things to eat in SF before you die” list.  The point of no return.
  19. Dinner with S & roommates at Burma Superstar.  A bunch of southeast asian kids getting warned about the chili.  HA!  Tea leaf salad.
  20. Mexican hot chocolate.  Warm and comforting.

I just realized that most of my traveling involved eating.  I’m such a Singaporean!

(Also back in the office today.  It is difficult to convince people that you really were working very hard when you come back with a tan and the mark of your sunglasses imprinted on your face!  I really am very very tired!  Urg.)
