April 25, 2010 - Chase & I are off to San Francisco aboard Philippine Airlines. We survived a 16hr trip MNL to SFO via PAL instead of the 12hr trip, thanks to the 4 hr delay aboard the plane in Manila Airport. We were also on a full flight so the immigration processing also took quite sometime. Chase and I stayed with my Aunt's Family in Fairfield, California. They picked us up from the airport after waiting for hours.
Our stay in San Francisco was even less than a week, but we took our time to visit us many spots as possible. On our Day 1, when we recovered from our jet lag, we did not let the day pass, we went to Travis Airbase to check out things in the commissary and then we went to the outlet stores in Vacaville. On Day 2, went to the mall.

And then we went to the city & the usual tourist spots...!!! ♥♥♥

It was a great day!The houses in the city along Lombard Street are picturesque. Chase had fun & then got tired of running after the birds at the Fisherman's Wharf. We love the sourdough breads in the store, it was fun & amazing to look at all the shapes they made out of them. The Golden Gate was like a scene out of any travel logbooks.
We went home as we look forward to another day of adventure...Trip to Reno!
We enjoyed our first experience of Snow...too bad for Chase, mommy's Kill Joy, he wasn't able to stay as much as he wanted! :-) Then, we went to Circus Circus! Chase played as much as he wanted to, and we took home a lot of stuff toys. The best part, we had a buffet dinner! I ♥ the food! Ice Cream all you want! and the best pudding in the world, so they say...Too bad though, Chase gagged on a jelly bean, and he barfed! We went on a 3hr trip with smell of it! It was nothing new to me, but for my relatives, it was definitely an experience to remember Chase by. :-)
SFO was a blast! The food portions was to die for! :-)...Below was one unique food trip experience...Hisui Japanese Steak House located at Monte Vista Ave.,Vacaville, Ca.

|Our first try of Edimame --healthy appetizer to our ♥'s content!|
|Fried Sushi! Yum! I finished one & then get to share another with my aunt!|
|Chase's Favorite Fried Ice Cream--Jap Version! He ate most of this though!...he couldn't wait for his turn, he wouldn't want to put his spoon down! :-)|
On our last day, we did a last minute shopping & packing! We left San Francisco with a box (50lbs) full of goodies. :-) We feel so blessed to have such loving & very welcoming relatives. They made our stay in San Francisco really an affair to remember, and something to look forward to again! I left my ♥ in Vacaville though! :-) Shopping forever! :-)...We will definitely have to be back in SFO since JB,my hubby, wasn't able to join us for this trip...as he went elsewhere (Mexico) :-)
