San Francisco Road Trip in Pictures



Bonjour mes amis!

This April (2015), I took a weekend road trip to San Francisco, California. If you're driving there from Los Angeles, it will take about 5-6 hours to get there. The road is mostly straight, with some hills. It's a fun road trip because you get to see other parts of California that are different from the city scape of LA. Also, when you're about an hour away from arriving, you get to see small fruit shops from people that actually grow them. It's always a fun sight to see.

Our road trip started on a Friday morning. We arrived to our hotel in Fishermans Wharf. It was great because you were at walking distance from the famous Pier 39, as well as other shops and restaurants. After it was the Golden Gate bridge time and a stop at the Ghirardeili Square for a yummy treat. With this treat we concluded our San Fran Trip. However, on our road back home we stopped by GOOGLE, which is by San Jose, California! I am a big fan of our dear friend Google and it was so much fun seeing where the action happens. I am making our visit to Google a separate blog post because it would be way to many pictures for one post. Also, because Google is in San Jose and not San Fran :) Make sure you read that post to see the cute Google bikes, loved them.

Here are the pics I took of our short trip:

First restaurant we ate at. I got lasagna and a strawberry margarita, both very yummy:) 





Then we did some walking.





Sourdough bread! Its everywhere.

You can see Pier 39 in the distance.

Don't let the sun fool you, it was really cold in the evening.




Breakfast the next day at Eagle Cafe. So good.



I spy with my little eye, the Golden Gate Bridge!




The Golden Gate Bridge.

Our bridge is so Grand! And you only realize how gigantic and beautiful it is when you see it up close <3

5 Traditional Mexican Hats

After my last post about the Ricky Ricardo Straw hat, I became interested in other types of hats worn in different parts of the world. So here are 5 traditional hats worn in Mexico.


1. The Mariachi Hat The Mariachi hat is usually worn by someone that is a part of a Mariachi group. The hat is part of the typical Mariachi outfit. Compared to the charro hat (see below), the mariachi hat is much more elaborate and fancy looking. However, as with many other things, it varies. By the way, check out the details, on those hats! Prettyful.






2. The Charro Hat When I think of a Charro, what comes to mind is a Mariachi singer. However, Charros are usually men that participate in Rodeo Competitions. Also, I noticed that sombreros de charro are usually less decorated than those worn by Mariachi groups. 



3. The Vaquero Hat This is probably one of the most well known Mexican hats because these hats are usually used to depict the cowboy image.  Here's a spanish lesson for ya: Un vaquero = A cowboy




4. Th…

Review: Pizza Hut's Tuscani Pasta - Creamy Chicken Alfredo

Hi there Dear friends,  Today I bring you a food review that I just had to share! I feel I must share this with you because I was pleasantly surprised on how good this was. It's Pizza Hut's Tuscani Pasta in Creamy Chicken Alfredo. I have personally never tried these pastas, so I was skeptical. However, on this particular day  was at Targe and was starving because I had not eaten all morning. Thus, I decided to try this pasta. 
 I am happy to report that, yes, this is very creamy. It also has a good amount of chicken in it, which makes it that more filling. The top is somewhat crusty and when you get past it, its where the sauciness comes to play. The taste of the actual Alfredo sauce is also very flavorful and delicious. 
They say that when you are extremely hungry, everything tastes good. BUT, I can tell you that to me this creamy pasta was very delicious and definitely would recommended. So, if one sad day, you find yourself at Target with an empty stomach, do not hesitate …

The Routine...

As students, we all have that dreaded period where everything seems to pile up with no sign of slowing down. We also all have that friend that just seems to always forget they're a student and who happens drag you down their own stress lane without giving a second thought that you might be stressing too. "Hey, I have my own stressors ok! Calm down and get it together!" Haha. Steering back to course, here is a short story written and inspired by one such friend during our high school years. 
The red velvet curtains open up to a heavily breathing boy with sweat dripping down the sides of his temples:
"Oh, no! No, no, no!" cried Edgar an early morning.
"What happened?" said Rita tilting her head with an i-know-what-you-did kind of look. "Its my homework-- I..." "You didn't do it and its an essay thats due today by 3rd period" Rita said quickly interrupting Edgar. "Ha! Yes." Answered Edgar with a half guilty smile. "I did…
