I remember my first time hitting the slopes and I just kept on going and falling and going and falling without fear. But this year, I was scared to hit the slopes, getting off the lift and maintain the same speed to keep up with my friends. It's been a while since the last time I snowboard, and I never really get the chance to practice carving since I only go up once every season, so up to now, I will honestly say, I still can't carve. But I don't want to give up on snowboarding or just limit myself to the basic with "toe-up", so I am going to go back again by the end of this year, and practice as much as I could. On the other hand, I had an amazing time with my friends.
I always teach Coco new tricks at least once a quarter or whenever I can, and for this month, I was able to teach him how to close the door which I thought would be hard, but realistically, it only took me an hour to teach him with the help of some treats. =)
This is the 4th year that San Francisco closed down Folsom street on mission district to held it's food street festival. It features a gathering of more than 70 vendors
including San Francisco’s most well-known restaurants, food trucks,
carts, home cooks, James Beard award winners, Michellin starred chefs,
visiting vendors from five bustling food metropolises. I was able to finally try tasty dishes from restaurants (like the epic State Bird Provisions and their Spicy Summer Tomato Giardinier for just $2), food trucks, and pop-ups like 4505 Meats and Boxing Room. Nothing is over $8 and there’s tons of options for $3-$5 with some tasty treats as low as $2.

This is my favorite - Ground beef wrapped with Pho noodle
