Pier & Cheesecake

After work yesterday, bro came to pick me up with Kathy and we dropped by Fisherman's Warf to pick up some more sea urchins. Those ones were fatter compared to the ones from last time :D

Today bro decided to eat one of his cheesecakes he bought from Thomas Hass. It is made with blue cheese D; Pretty tasty considering I have a strong dislike for blue cheese.

Science World + A Wet Sunny Day

So, my class had a field trip to Science World to learn how children interact with interactive activities in a "museum" setting. I felt like such a creeper... taking pictures of random kids while they were playing. This little kid was trying to touch the Hippo x] Oh look! Paul and Davidson teaming up to build a dam that denied a little kid of the flowing water :o lol~

When I woke up today, I expected it to be raining all day but to my surprise I saw rays of sunshine! I looked out my window and the water drops left from last night's rain was shining on the leaves and branches in my backyard. They were beautiful :) Although I was suppose to be at the passport office by 8am and it was already 8:30am, I decided to take some pictures anyways x]

I simply love these flowers in my backyard so of course I had to take photos of them again :) This time I stole the 70-300mm lens hood and held it up for the 18-55mm lol.

$2 Meal

Today is the Old Spaghetti Factory's 40th anniversary and they went back in time and served from their 1970's menu! All except one dish are $1.95 with fair portion. I guess it was my fault for not reading what is included with the meal and paid extra for the Cesar salad. $32.28 filled up 6 stomachs and I thought that was pretty amazing. Thanks Old Spaghetti Factory! :D

Aldrich Pears Association


Went to Aldrich Pears Association yesterday to learn more about museum design. Maybe it was the McDonald that I had right before the field trip, I wasn't able to focus on much of the talk though it was interesting. Damn you McDonald!

On a different note...SNOOPY!! Thank you hunny :D

My blogging days shall begin again! This shall be about my soft spot for photography and design (maybe food) :D Being the nit-picky person I am, I will redesign the look of this blog during the summer. Right now I just don`t have the time for dealing with HTML :x

This first post is part of my "Photo-A-Day" challenge which can be seen on my Flickr account. Shot taken from a Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T70.
