Project Life ~ January 7 to 10

Project Life 2015

January 7

We leave for San Francisco today, this time, we stay at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel, 5 stars hotel is truly 5 stars, we were greeted with nice fragrance tea and yummy cookies.

the view from the 48th floor is awesome

we walked to China Town for our favorite Singapore Chili crab and I found a Daiso just close to our hotel, Daiso is like a dollar store in America, except it sells all the Japanese product, like the one I shopped in Tokyo and Singapore. I heard that LA has one too, I need to go there someday.

January 8

Today I woke up missing Papi a lot!

DH at work, I walked just a block from our hotel and had breakfast at La Boulange, yummy almond croissant and Macha Latte

for lunch, as usual, also Hog Island at Ferry Terminal

get our usual stuff - clam chowder 

this time we also tried their caesars salad and DH tried a shrimp grits, both were delicious

of course when we were there, no reason not to take a bit at Miette's french macarons, just the store itself is so pretty

January 9

We took the street bus to Fisherman's Wharf, taking public transport is one of my favorite thing to do when I travel.

Scoma's is where we had lunch

DH loves their fish

and I had their signature cioppino

I am glad the cable car die I ordered from PTI came in time for me to finish up my page

I was trying to get the same look of this cable car in San Francisco

after lunch, we went back to the hotel and pack, and then hop on the Bart  (another public transportation in SF) to go to Dublin Pleasanton, it was a 50 minutes ride. We picked up our rental car from there and drove to Bankhead theater at Livermore, CA - the main purpose of this trip is to watch George Winston's performance.

this little town is lovely, we walked around downtown area before concert started, and found a pretty good sushi place too (Roppongi Sushi)

January 10

Home to see Papi, YAY!

Looks like you had a wonderful trip from your photos, with lots of good eats and places to roam. However, it's always good to come home!

How delightful Kirsty!
I love your PL pages and it's so funny, I'm working on my SF pages as we speak!
You know what, it's too funny, I was looking for that Japanese dollar store in Chinatown and you obviously had the best address! I would love to try the Mandarin Hotel next time!
Thank You~
