…and shrimp dumplings (har cao) and steam egg custard lava buns.
All of which were not captured through images, but in great memories. 🙂
It was 4 p.m. on. Sunday when Mr. O came to the living room where I was folding laundry then he told me to drop him off at the train station because he had to pick up some stuff for work before flying out to Las Vegas tomorrow morning. I told him that with Sunday schedule and possible traffic delays due to rail construction or repair would take him there and back in three hours or more. So I suggested to take a drive into the city.
At 4:15 p.m. we all jumped into the van and took off for a quick trip to San Francisco. I kind of like this spontaneous and spur of the moment decision.
Passing the toll on Bay Bridge and seeing the Golden Gate Bridge on the other side of the bay.
Downtown SF appeared on our right. This view — I thoroughly enjoy every single time we drive into the city.
After a quick stop at his office to pick up work documents we decided to head to the Richmond neighborhood to eat at our favorite Chinese place. I didn’t want to cook dinner at 8 p.m. when we get back home. This place has great dim sum and lobster noodles, although it’s a bit pricey compare to those in Chinatown.
Financial district and the steep hill up ahead. Our poor old minivan made it to the top and more.
Passing by Japan Town
Having Jasmine tea at 6 p.m. was so good, but so bad for my sleep tonight.
This family had a banquet with more than 10 awesome dishes. Whatever they were eating, I just wanted to crash their table and eat with them.
The Vietnamese restaurant that I have never been to or eaten at. We ate at the Chinese restaurant next to it. I am skeptical of eating at Vietnamese places.
Sunday night traffic to get back to the Bay Bridge was not that bad at all. I told Mr. O that we should go into the city on Sunday late afternoon from now on to avoid heavy congestion.
A nice view of Bay Bridge on the way back to East Bay.
That’s it. A nice way to end September.
Tomorrow is my month!
