    Wow it seems like you had an amazing time! I don’t really like winter too because there are so many types of clothes you can’t wear and so many things you can’t do (plus you become more lazy to go out). But the seafood looks REALLY awesome.!

    Love your photos..looks like you had a great time! 🙂 There’s a Morton’s Steakhouse in Vancouver too. There’s also the upscale Gotham Steakhouse which you’d probably love. It’s extremely popular with celebrities and the like.

      Morton’s is so good.. it’s in SG too, but wish it was in AU!

      Where’s Gotham? I can go there next week when I’m in Vancouver!

        It’s in downtown on Seymour Street. It’s close to all the shopping districts too (Pacific Centre, Robson St, etc). Or you might like Blue Water Cafe, which is an upscale seafood place.

    It is too cold in the Bay Area lately. Those are some great pictures, especially of food (yummy!). P.S. The famous building in SF is the TransAmerica building.

      The building was pretty! Didn’t do that much sightseeing though… too busy shopping 😛

      Transamerica pyramid

      Some interesting history here. Bank of America and Transamerica used to be part of the same company, so there has always been a low-key rivalry. When Bank of America built its building, which was then the tallest building in San Francisco, the only way Transamerica could top it, given height and lot-size restrictions, was to build theirs in the shape of a pyramid.

    Please buy some warm clothes! Don’t want you to freeze plus it’s really windy in SF. Glad you’re enjoying the food plus the shopping as well. How are you liking those Shu Uemura eyelash curler? Read that it’s one of the best around.

    Yeah, even WE are freezing. You just happened to come during our RARE snow and hail storms. It only happens ever few decades. Looks like you got a lot of sightseeing in nonetheless, so that’s cool. Kuletos is nice, but expensive. There are a bunch of them around the city and Peninsula so I guess it depends on which one you went to. I share your zest for good food. I don’t, however, share your ability to eat all that food and not gain weight.

    Ugh. Enjoy the rest of your trip. Hopefully it’ll warm up a bit. We San Franciscans just aren’t used to this.
