We went to this lovely authentic Mexican
Random part of the restaurant
After another full day’s work, we headed off on a special event planned by our lovely hosts. It was a trip to San Francisco! We piled happily into this vehicle – I like to call it our celebrity stretch limo 😉 It certainly seemed like it IMHO! Really lovely leather seats, a massive TV, and a cool bar 🙂 We toured around San Francisco and did touristy things. Here’s what we saw:
Really steeeeeep road
Lombok Street – the twisty-est street in the world
Lots of touristy shops
I was fascinated with the rows of yummy food
Ooooooooo…. fresh steamed crabs!
Alcatraz Prison from afar
The famous Golden Gate Bridge.. looking a little depressed
After the sight-seeing, we stopped at Chaya for dinner. It’s a beautiful restaurant – glamarous with killer views, yet had fabulous food. We started off with drinks and a few sushi platters and they were divine! Really rich and creamy and just perfect. I opted for the steak as my main meal.. and for some reason the waiter said, as he put down my plate with a flourish, “I saved the biggest steak for you!” I thought he was kidding until I saw it.. it was like a whole cow on my plate, *lol*. I knew I wouldn’t be able to finish it, but to my horror, I did! It was SO GOOD and tender and cooked just so perfectly that I kept eating and talking and eating and talking, and when I finally looked down it was gone! I felt so guilty after that, but at least it was good :)~
The pretty restaurant
Not-so-pretty photo from my camera
By the time we were driving back in that limo-thing, it was around midnight and I was so tired from a full day’s hectic work and a massive dinner, that I fell asleep! I can’t believe I did that.. it’s rude to fall asleep in front of your work mates, isn’t it? But I was struggling so hard to stay awake I couldn’t handle it, and somehow dozed off even though I was trying so hard not too. But others fell asleep too, so at least I wasn’t the only one 😛 This was definitely my favourite day of the trip. It was great to hang out with everyone. I see them almost 24/7 every day yet I still want more. It’s like an addiction.
