Unique Fun Activities To Do in San Francisco

Weekly Wellness : Week 20 (May 13 - May 19)

Apologies for the lack of updates the past 3 weeks. I said to myself that I would be good about blogging and updating even if it's nothing major going on. I am currently in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia for a work related trip with some pleasure. Left May 13th evening and got to Addis Ababa on Wednesday midnight, and it's now been a week since I left home. Trip has been slightly extended due to thunderstorms and work. I do miss home though, even though it's a place with beautiful nature all around.

It's very eye opening and interesting being in a 3rd World Country where there is a clear divide of those who have money and those who do not. I spend most my days in the hotel but in my free time I went to Addis Ababa University to see the African Studies Museum and I went to Etoto Museum. Such a beautiful culture and history.

I also went to a Cultural Show where they have traditional Ethiopian music and instruments and dance along with food! I'd say I'm pretty open minded when it comes to food but I also want to be careful not to get sick here as I have about another week left.

Places don't really have numbers or signs, there is no 'Yelp' for restaurants, power outages are the norm though you'd wish you known while stuck in the elevator, people are friendly and speaks English, Italian food here is amazing due to them trying to colonize, and way of life and customs are very different!

Angelic Pretty Spring/Summer 2019 : Magical Horoscope

This is definitely going to be a popular release! I saw this in person during the Angelic Pretty Dinner Event and it's very beautiful and I love the print. I think stars and constellations have always been a popular motif for prints in Lolita Fashion. I also like that it comes in 3 'sky' colors, with 2 fun cuts. Though a skirt version would be super cute too!

Angelic Pretty Spring/Summer 2019 : Fleur Cat

I love anything to do with cats so this is a must have in my closet! I'm torn between the pink/lavender and the yellow/sax color way however the cuts are not my favorite. I'm curious to see how popular this series will turn out. I saw the print in person and the fabric is really lovely and not chiffon! Thank Goodness, otherwise I'd just nick it as soon as I wear it!

Weekly Wellness : Week 15 (April 8 - 14)

Some days are good, and some are alright. I don't want to sound overly dramatic but the past week I haven't had much motivation to do anything. While I don't think depression is quite the word I'm looking for, I needed some time to myself and just do this whole 'self-care' thing. Haven't been reading as much as I was during the Summer so I need to catch up on my books!

Encountered this fun and interactive art museum with virtual reality components. LMK By One Dome Global.

Some well over due mani & pedi by lovely https://www.instagram.com/nailartbydagiima I got my eyes on you... short and simple the way I like it.

Not even 2 weeks and we went back to Kusakabe and they remember us! It's beginning Spring Time so some of the items on the menu were changed since the other time we came. This time I took a photo of everything so I can remember that we had. I'm a little shy when it comes to taking photos at Omakase dinners because I want to fully enjoy the dining experience rather than interrupt myself taking my phone out for some photos.

A selection of things we had...My favorite is the chu-toro, nodoguro, crab, and wagyu!

Saw one of my good friends for 'brunch' and I've always wanted to try Breakfast at Tiffany's. It was alright to me, I think Dottie's was much better but service at Tiffany's was much better than Dottie's for sure. I ordered the Benedict Trio which has a loco moco, corn hash, and fried chicken benedict.

I have some fun things planned rest of April which I'll share next time...until then..

Weekly Wellness : Week 14 (April 1 - 7)

It was my birthday the past week and I am so thankful for all the beautiful lovely people in my life. I thought I would have made another post sometime mid-last week but that didn't quite happen. Anyways another incoming #foodporn post...featuring all the places I ate at over the past week.

There's this hole in the wall place that I go to for their curry which is bomb-tastic, Back Room in Richmond District has a basic curry over rice and you can add on toppings which I always opt for the Katsu and Omelette and drink wise I always come here for the Kinako Latte!

I caught a show at the Regency Ballroom (one of my lesser favorite live houses) Children of Bodom is back in San Francisco!

CuteBrainPants showed me this cool gem in Palo Alto Teaquation & Tonic walking distance from the Caltrain station. It's super cute and has a fun menu! We got some drinks, appetizers,  and I tried their Chicken Chashu Bowl which was pretty good!

I couldn't resist this place Bon, Nene for I love LOVE their Mentaiko Spaghetti that I came here again. Super small cozy place but gets packed quick. Simple dish but heavy on the butter which makes it even more delicious! I don't say no to butter.

I stumbled across this member's only club called the Modernist and while I don't have experience with any type of member's only clubs this bar experience was a little underwhelming. I care more about enjoying yourself and having a good time so this bar was just 'meh' to me.

Got lunch at Kin Khao a place that I frequent, my favorite is their spicy chicken wings and Khao Soi!!

I explored Noe Valley over the weekend and it's really a fun area to hang out in. Lots of interesting shops, cafes, sweets, and dogs! Dog Heaven!

Christopher Elbow Chocolates!

1760 Polk, solid date place. Food was good but nothing extraordinary. My favorite was the mushroom soup shot, salad, and the braised short ribs.

Octavia. Delicious fun small plates to share. Went here for my birthday and was amazing! Service could be better but everything was really good!

Trestle. Pre-fixed $39 + tip/tax comes with appetizer, main course, and dessert. Their menu changes daily so be sure to check their website for what they are serving. I loved everything and the beignets were so good!!
