Day #2 & 3: San Francisco - Fresno

Spent my second day in San Francisco.

Morning after breakfast, we went to see the famous 8 hairpin turn @ Lombard Street.. And when I say walk, it was more likely a morning workout - the walkway has about almost 30-40 degree of slope inclining, and we're like dying going up.. >.<

This, is just the beginning... >.<

Nice view though

And this is it! The sharp turns!  

Forgive me photo shooting skill, this is the best angle I could get... XD

Damn scare falling down while taking this!!!!

Next we went to visit the signature of SF -- Golden Gate Bridge..

However, the god damn fog was too thick and we could only be able to see it during the ferry tour @ Bay 39.




From Wiki:

'The Golden Gate Bridge is a suspension bridge spanning the Golden Gate, the opening of the San Francisco Bay into the Pacific Ocean. As part of both U.S. Route 101 and California State Route 1, the structure links the city of San Francisco, on the northern tip of the San Francisco Peninsula, to Marin County. It is one of the most internationally recognized symbols of San Francisco, California, and the United States. It has been declared one of the Wonders of the Modern World by the American Society of Civil Engineers. The Frommers travel guide considers the Golden Gate Bridge "possibly the most beautiful, certainly the most photographed, bridge in the world".'

The weather was 17 degree Celsius, which supposed to be chilling and just nice. But wind was too strong especially when we were near to the ocean, at the pier. I WAS NEARLY FROZEN TO DEATH!!! >.<

Freaking COLD!

See even my face turned red.. =( 

Our lunch was taken at Bubba Gump in Bay 39. As an international chain, I would say that it has a certain QC in its food and service served. I rate it 4 stars because 1. Servants there are so cheerful and cool 2. Food served fast even its crowded 3. I LOVE shrimp!!!! =D


Five options of main course for us to choose. Lovely tour guide!!

Crispy and crunchy with juice!! 

We visited Palace of Fine Art, and SF City Hall as well. But as I said, it was windy and cold and so, I wasn't able to take any nice pic/ pose nicely in front of the camera.. X(

I suppose that night life in SF is fun and happening, yet I wasn't able to experience my own due to the assignment that I have to rush... Spent my whole night in hotel facing in front of my lappy... I sincerely hope I could finish it before the trip to Vegas........ 

Vegas.. Vegas... !!! Woohoo! =P

DAY 3#

Day 3 was more likely a food tour.. We eat, sleep (in bus), continued to eat, and sleep AGAIN!

Breakfast was taken in China Town, SF before departed to Monterey. To be honest, I think restaurant in China Town need to kinda improve their food. They claim that their food (Dim Sum) was originally from their country (mostly HK and China main land), yet the taste is seriously below 2 stars of quality... Didn't mean to criticize, just telling the truth! =P

Lunch was taken in Old Fisherman Grotto, Monterey Bay, and this made a huge contrast in compared with the breakfast we had!

Appetizers: Fried squid with butter & bread

Clam Chowder! Gourmet award winner!!! 

GIANT Lobster! 

My head is small comparing with IT! XP

I would say that this is the best! Caramel yogurt with raspberry! 

In conclusion: Chinese food in US - Not nice; Western food in US - So far satisfied! =D

Then I've tried my first ever Starbucks in US!

Hot Chocolate and ME!

Taste is a bit different with Malaysia's, so as the portion where it's just 70% full.

We then went to see the Pebble Tree & Bird Rock @ Pebble Beach.

Guess: What makes the rock white in color? XD
After that was a long journey of sleeping in bus. 4 hours and finally we're here in Fresno. 

Dinner was America-style Buffet: EVERYTHING IS SOOO FATTENING! 





And FAT!
After this, intensive workout is necessary.. >.<

Tomorrow will be shopping @ clothing outlets, pray hard that my wallet won't 'bleed' too much.... XPP

Have a great night to me and a wonderful afternoon to my Mal Friends yo~!
