Tribute to all the food-snaps I take that go un-posted as soon as the physical item gets devoured / forgotten. Here's a post to say, you'll always be remembered. Tralala. I love you, Los Angeles. ▷ Breakfast @ Denny's for the first time and I liked it! Western portions are way too generous. With a selection like… Continue reading [L.A.] FOOD SNAPS IN LOS ANGELES
“I love New York. You can pop out of the Underworld in Central Park, hail a taxi, head down Fifth Avenue with a giant hellhound loping behind you, and nobody even looks at you funny.” ― Rick Riordan Eat, shop, dream, repeat! was all we did in New York during the winter. In early February,… Continue reading [NEW YORK] EAT. SHOP. REPEAT
This is the part we say goodbye to an awesome biking expedition: from stopping at various landmarks at San Francisco bay, to biking till the foot of the bridge, and then across the bridge, to exploring the city of Sausalito, I had so much fun that I forgot to feel tired. From the pier at Sausalito,… Continue reading Biking the Golden Gate Bridge | Part (IV)
Took a snapshot at this lovely residential estate cum diner by the bay! Loving how the baby blues of the house were in perfect pastel harmony with the cloud-streaked blues of the skies and crystal clear turquoise of the sea. We were finally in Sausalito, after biking from the pier, then across the Golden Gate Bridge!… Continue reading Sausalito – Biking the Golden Gate Bridge | Part (III)
Part 1 saw us through the journey from Pier 39, and in Part Deux we finally peddled past the threshold and across 1.7 miles of galvanized steel! We did it - was my first thought, taking the first step onto the gate. The 2 of us only just saw the gate from the start-point miles… Continue reading Biking the Golden Gate Bridge | Part (II)
In life sometimes it pays to be a little wild and adventurous. On check-out day, we took an early tram to Fishermen's Wharf @ Pier 39, rented a pair of bikes and helmets, then peddled for a good half-day from San Francisco to Sausalito via the Golden Gate! This is where Part 1 begins, from… Continue reading Biking the Golden Gate Bridge | Part (I)

What… Continue reading Food for Not-Skinny People
Breakfast at Lori's Diner on Mason Street, a '50s-style rock'n'roll American bistro. For the all-American oldies experience, this is the place to be! Love their classic red booths, checkered tiles and memorabilia of Coca-Cola, Elvis Presley and various cars of the era. All of Lori's Diners are open 24 hours daily; the Lori's on Powell… Continue reading Lori’s Diner, San Francisco
Day after we touched down on San Francisco was the United States' President's Day on February 17th. We took a tram from Parc 55 Wyndham Hotel to Pier 39 aka Fishermen's Wharf, which was mad crowded. That island on the other side in the picture below, by the way, is Alcatraz! We were just in time to catch Tulipmania! PIER 39… Continue reading President’s Day at Pier 39, San Francisco
At Fishermen's Wharf on a crowded National Holiday afternoon, we braved the smell of bumming sea lions and watched them laze around the harbour decks as they tanned their already brown skins and accumulated fats on their flabby bodies. You know what the ironic thing is? There were so many of us watching them, it… Continue reading Sea Lion Center, Fishermen’s Wharf
Taking a break while exploring Pier 39, we ended up at this small coffee-house along the lower deck. It strong Holiday-in-Hawaii influence makes people very, very happy. The entire store is operated by a single person who does the orders, the cashier, and mixes the drinks. The wait was entirely worth it though! Ordered the… Continue reading Maui Wowi a taste of Hawaii
