Our Time in San Francisco

My family and I just got back from a 5 day trip to beautiful San Francisco.  While we were there we got to do all the fun tourists activities. We did lots of walking, sightseeing, shopping, eating, and got to visit some fun museums.   Amongst all the fun that we had our favorites were visiting the Japanese Tea Garden and seeing the beautiful cherry blossoms,

walking the Golden Gate Bridge,

eating at Gridz (our all time HI restaurant) (We love their chicken and raffles and chocolate haulpia pie.  Their raffles have spam and cheese in it.),

enjoying a sundae at Gharadelli Square,

lunch and green tea with honey and orange (I will have to try to make this at home.  It's super ono!),

and shopping in Japantown (They have the best store there with super cute products.).

Stay tune for the fun items that I purchased  in my next post.  We also got to visit Benson's friend from college and her family.

We enjoyed some gourmet pizza together for dinner and had ice cream and mango cake for dessert.
We also got to see one of my good friends and her hubby.

We ate dinner at a Japanese restaurant and enjoyed eggots

and ice cream for dessert.  My hubby ordered lychee ice cream and I had pineapple coconut ice cream.

We never had eggots before.  They are the texture and tastes like pancakes.  The ice cream parlor they took us to had the best flavors.

I  have never seen these flavors before at home.  Wish we had a place that sold eggots and have these ice cream flavors.  We got gifts for both of our friends.  We gave Benson's friend family a gift along with this card.  They love Hawaii just like we do.

We gave my good friend and her hubby a gift too along with a card.  (I decorated a notebook for my friend and gave her some magnetic sheets to put her dies on.) Like Benson's friend and her family they like Hawaii too.  LOL!

This is what Benson's friend gave to us

and what my friend gave to us. Check out the cute packages of seaweed with Hello Kitty on them.

My family and I feel so blest to be able to have our vacation in SF and be able to meet up with our friends.  We are all exhausted from our trip in SF, but we can't wait to go back again one day soon.

  1. Wow, I can see you all had a FABULOUS time. You're making me hungry again (hee-hee) with your yummy pix of goodies. Ummm, Lychee ice cream and Coconut/Pineapple ice cream would sure hit the spot right now. I'm drooling. How fun to receive those awesome omiyage. Have a happy Sunday!
