Doesn't Matter if You're Black or White!
Before the Autumn Leaves Start to Fall
The only downside of my being away for a few days is that I've missed my favorite teevee shows. Thanks to Mr. Torrent, I was able to watch and get updated again.
Grey's AnatomyMade me cry when O'Malley delivered that speech about giving his own heart if that would take to save his dad. I'm happy that they brought back that bubbly doctor. Yang-Dr. Hahn situation would be interesting in the next episodes. I also like Izzie and Yang's confrontation scene. Am bored with Meredith.CalifornicationWhat a season ender! I truly enjoyed each episode. I really like Mia's character (played by Madeline Zima). Hank and Karen are the coolest parent, doncha think? I'd love to see how their relationship grows in the next season.America's Next Top ModelEbony, Ebony, Ebony. You screw it, girl! Tyra was so disappointed in you! What's happening to my girl, Lisa? Bring it, baby! At last, Heather knew how to do a frontal.
I think the ladies would enjoy this episode because John (Jesse Metcalfe) makes a comeback. Now if you're pro-Carlos, you'd get a shot of him in boxers ;oP
I'm happy that Olive (played by Kristin Chenoweth) and Digby get more screen time. They also showed more of Ned's childhood. Got a glimpse of a young Digby, as a bonus. In the Philippines, the young version of the main character normally lasts up to 2 episodes only.
A lot of our "Heroes" were given exposure in episode 6. Daddy Noah's back to his bad self. Claire would really do anything just to be a cheerleader such as, perform a badly-choreographed number, do a back flip, and get dropped from the sky. Kids, these days! Niki has been healed? Nuthin' is happening much with Sylar & the Wonder Twins.
San Francisco (Day Two)
After checking out of Clarion (by the way, Kuya Bong provided our hotel; isn't he great?!), we went to pick up Fe & Jesse. They plan to visit Fisherman's Wharf while we have our lunch with Kuya Bong.As soon as we dropped the couple at Pier 39, we headed back to Pacifica where Kuya Bong lives. He's got a nice place. There are lots of religious items from their hometown, Liliw.He asked us where we wanna eat again. Gev wanted seafood which is fine with me and Ogz. Kuya Bong decided to take us to Todai's. Am excited 'cause I've been wanting to eat here for the longest time.When we entered the resto, it looks like a big food court. So many people lining up to get their food. The waitress immediately asked us if there's a birthday celebrant in the group. I guess the birthday celebrant would get to eat for free. I didn't wanna eat salad so I just went directly to the hot meals where there's a huge line. I grabbed fried rice, chicken, crab legs, calamari and tempura. I got some soup too. The food is delish!!! No wonder people eat here all the time. I must try their desserts. I took a bite out of Ogz's banana crepe. Yum-O! Pretty close to Cafe Breton's taste. I also got some small cakes. Peach cake is my favorite!After more than an hour of eating, we decided to leave. We still need to check out Fisherman's Wharf and locate the Crookedest Road. Dropped Kuya Bong off at his house. Thanked him for his wonderful welcome to all of us (even to a stranger like me). Free food and hotel accommodations. How can you beat that?!It's time to reunite with our other friends. Parking is quite a feat here in San Francisco especially near Fisherman's Wharf. We found one near Joe's Crab Shack. Fisherman's Wharf is alive with peeps! I love this place ;oP
Found this store called Boudin where bakers create bread and shape them into animals: koala, turtles, crabs and even alligator. I wonder how they taste.Ogz and I haven't been to Pier 39 so we checked out the place. I've been wanting to get a big US flag so I got one at "Flags America". I haven't got a photo yet with a cable car. Good thing we found this car waiting for passengers. A nice Aussie lady offered to take our photos.Outside Pier 39, we could hear sea lions barking continuously. They're pretty hard to ignore so we went there first. Some are just sunbathing. A few are swimming. They're just lazy and loud.A few distance away, I saw the Alcatraz. Too bad there's no time to visit it.Before we met our friends again, I spotted the Harry Mason jewelry store on the second floor. I asked the lady associate if she has something for guys. She gave me this. Instantly loved it. I suggested to Ogz to get one too. He got an ear wrap.We have Bubba Gump back home in Manila and here in San Francisco, they have the same setup where you could put your feet into the shoes of Forrest Gump and sit on the bench. I had to do it for souvenir.Before we headed back to LA, we located the "Crookedest Street" on Lombard. That capped our 4-day trip to the West Coast.
