San Francisco Feb 2011

I flew from East Coast to West Coast and the temperature is now 15 degree Celcius in San Francisco. I bought these magazines at the airport bookstore. In regard to the feature article in Fortune, I guess there are lots of people working in companies that never get listed in the “100 Best Companies to Work for” and still live a happy life. In Fast Company is an interesting article about Michelle Rhee, former chancellor of the District of Columbia Public Schools system of Washington, D.C. And she was born in 1969. Wow. The meaning of “achievement” is quite different for some people. I got a new Kindle (the black one in front) which is smaller and lighter, with stronger contrast in screen than the previous one (the white one in the back). Nice breakfast at my sister’s house. One thing I am learning during my trip is that when you are hungry you can become more thankful for food. I had a chance to visit downtown San Francisco. We had lunch at a food court in Westfield Mall. The photo above is a bowl of spicy hot Tom Yam Noodle. We drove by Chinatown. We then drove 30+ minutes to Muir Woods National Memorial, a wonderful park to enjoy serene shadows of over 600 year-old redwood trees. I wish to bring my family here sometime. I guess I can stay here for hours. We stopped by Ici ice cream shop. There was a long line in front of us when we got there at around 4:30 pm. It took almost 50 minutes to get one for ourselves. The flavor was unique and not too sweet.]]>
