Hello from San Fransisco!
We’re calling it our ‘pre-honeymoon’ only because it’s the first trip we’re taking after the wedding 😀 So technically it should be a honeymoon but Fatty is actually here for work and I’m just tagging along so he doesn’t wanna count it as a honeymoon.
Why we’re here is because Fatty is starting an office in Silicon Valley. I’m not allowed to say what it is yet, but it is related to blogging although it’s not entirely under Nuffnang!
A bit nervous for him though cos he hasn’t done anything like this before and it’s a very big risk he’s taking. :X Hope it goes well *crosses fingers, arms, toes, legs wtf
So because of his work, most of our time here has actually been spent in San Jose, Mountain View, Sunnyvale and everywhere except San Fran wtf. Which is a pain cos our hotel is in SF so most of our time is spent driving up to Sunnyvale and Mountain View.
To get around, we rented a car.
To disasterous consequences wtf.
Americans are left hand drive and drive on the right side of the street which is opposite from us! Fatty was so not used to it he kept wanting to steer the car back to the left WTF.
We rented the car from the airport and when we were driving out of the parking lot, he hit a pillar HAHAHAHAHAH.
The right hand side mirror fell off HAHAHAHAHA T_____T
We had to shamefacedly go back to the rental counter and tell them we crashed their car hahahahahaha. Literally five minutes after we left FTL.
Luckily we bought insurance so they just gave us a new car hahaha.
Then on the first two days Fatty ended up on the wrong side of the road and we found ourselves facing honking truck drivers FOL we nearly died in a foreign country lolol.
Thankfully he got the hang of it… or else I wouldn’t be here typing this wtf.
So here are some pictures of our non-SF SF trip lol. It’s quite interesting actually! I’ve been to San Fran three times before and Fatty twice I think so it wasn’t absolutely necessary that we explore SF. Cos done before already. It was a good chance for us to explore the Bay area besides SF!
Also, SF is colder than I expected. I forgot about the wind T____T
Already I bought jeans and cardigan to get me through the days but not enough. SF, what else do you want from me *bitter wtf
And the other areas (not so close to the ocean) are a lot warmer! So I was totally happy to get out of SF hahaha.
One of my #ootds. Before the cold defeated me >___>
Mountain View! Also Starbucks view cos that’s where Fatty and his assistant Lilian met to do work while I sat nearby and battled jet lag.
Another view of Mountain View. The home of Google!
A bit appalled at people’s lack of concern towards theft hahahaha. This woman left her bag AND car keys hanging off her chair for so long while she went in to buy coffee!
If this was Malaysia, her bag and car would have disappeared in two minutes wtf.
The fat and the short.
Stopped at Pier 39 in San Fransisco. Been here a few times already but every time I come we end up here!
In front of Alcatraz. Tickets are sold out the entire week we’re here 🙁
I think I took a picture with Angela here also last time haha.
Took a short trip to Napa Valley. I think this is the view of a winery we passed! Or a grape orchard or something.
I said short but it took us three hours T____T Usually takes 1-2 hours I think but on the day we went there was a ‘high speed car chase’ which ended in a car crash and blocked the road -_-
At first I was like wah so exciting but max regretted it after that -_-
One of our many car rides. I look dopey here but Fatty looks okay.
There nicer picture! Bobo’s sisters said I look like her here D: I always look like someone else one fml identity crisis.
Me and my $9 shopping bag which I’m using for a handbag. Quite nice what no meh hahahaha.
Cardigan and jeans both from Abercrombie & Fitch! Bought to combat the cold. Tshirt from Foruchizu :3 Headband from Emoda, shoes from somewhere in Osaka.
Stocked up on undies at Victoria’s Secret!
Shopping :3 A lot of it is Fatty’s!!!!
In front of the Walt Disney family museum :3 Best day in SF so far!!! But too bad couldn’t take photos.
The wind was actually blowing so strong here! See this Fats cannot even open eyes!
This was in the museum store. Diamond paperweights! Diamonds from Snow White haha cos the dwarves were diamond miners.
This was the bench that Walt Disney used to sit on while waiting for his daughters to finish on the merry go round. Apparently he had to wait for them very often and it was there on that bench that he conceptualized the idea for Disneyland.
Another SF road. So picturesque!
Went to an ice cream place called Birite for Fatty to have his ice cream fix. He said if we lived in SF he’d go there everyday. I guess that’s his version of a Michelin star lol.
I hope it was worth the $70 ticket we got for parking illegally to get ice cream WTF. In our defense we thought can park there because EVERYONE was parking down the entire street for ice cream! Manatau everyone else also got ticketed wtf solidarity in numbers hahaha.
Met up with a Californian reader called Katherine!
Wah ended up taking a lot of photos after all even though we didn’t do much! That was our past few days in the Bay area.
Ok go shower and sleep tomorrow we might go to Winchester house which I’ve been wanting to go since two years ago but I think Angela didn’t want to bring me wtf.
