Coity Time

Cody and I were bored the other night and randomly decided to walk up Coit Tower.

Okay, to be honest, I never really been to Coit Tower despite my some odd years of living here. I know it's like 5 dollars to climb the tower, and supposedly it's one of the best 360 degree views of the city. Maybe it should be put in my bucket list of things to do this summer.

Bucket list #27: Climb Coit Tower. How awesome is that view, by the way? Really wished I had my SLR camera at this moment. Next time.

7x7 Big Eat: #5 Chasu Ramen @ Katana-Ya

I'm enjoying going through this 7x7 Big Eat list... any excuse for me to eat is okay with me.

Every time I pass by Katana-Ya close by Union Square, there's always people waiting outside to be seated. This place is known for their ramen and such, which I love ramen in general. My "Cup of Noodles" days are loonnnnggg behind me since I graduated college, so I had to upgrade to actually getting ramen that doesn't come out of a cellophane container.

This isn't part of 7x7 2012 list, but it was #29 last year. Last night, Xtine and I planned a dinner date, and ended up venturing out to the Marina at Tacolicious. The name itself gave me the giggles, so I was pretty excited to have dinner here.

Glamorous Pirates

Ahoy! Sorry for the lack of posts. Of course like everyone else, I've been busy with a thing called... life. Truth is, work has been draining me to the point where I'm just so exhausted to post when I'm off. And in between graduations, birthdays, trip planning, and summer festivities, it seems like the month has flown by with no real time to update.

BUT, I did have time to attend Bay to Breakers this past Sunday. I ended up missing last years big 100th anniversary race, so I knew I had to attend this year.

Pirates. So much better then ninjas. And of course Around the Bay Gal Xtine had to rock the fabulous red sequin eye-patch to keep a level of fanciness... cause that's just what we do. It was Xtine's first B2B, so of course Jay had to be there for his Bey. 

Okay, so all I really wanted was to rock this awesome parrot I got as part of my pirate get up. By far my most favorite thing about my costume... I might just wear it on any given day. Kidding... kind of.

Shenanigans everywhere. Xtine and I along with some new friends we made along the way trekked all the way from the Civic Center to the edge of Golden Gate Park. Such a great distance, but funny how time isn't relevant when you inebriated at 9 in the morning.

One of the new friends we made! His name is Matt. He's the horse in the middle sniffing coke out of his coke scoop pinky nail. Haha. Funny how at the time, this whole scene seem to be so normal.
Another friend we made drinking beer from an old Chinese man. Amazing.

Okay, this was by far my favorite costume out of the entire event. Loofas! You can't see but their boyfriends were dressed up as Dove soap bars and there was one hunky male dressed in a bath towel. I LOVED this idea! I might have to steal it for Halloween. Since Halloween is my favorite holiday, I guess that's why I like B2B so much... it's like Halloween in middle May. Only in the day time with everyone shitfaced!

I was so burnt out and got this gnarly farmers tan which I really need to even out ASAP. It's really not the bizzness at the moment. But it was worth the hotmessness of this past Sunday morning. Can't wait till next year!

SF Instagram - Maharaja Exhibit

Was browsing my iPhone today and found this picture from a couple months ago that Around the Bay Gal Xtine took of me.

Looking hella lavish at the Asian Art Museum. Lavish cause we went to see the Maharaja: The Splendor of India’s Royal Courts, of course. I loved the exhibit, and wish I would've seen it a bit earlier so I could've shared a proper review! But just imagine a lot of gold trinkets, jewelry, and silk garments. Like I said. Lavish. Xtine ended up buying that same mural at the gift shop, and looking at this picture, I really wished I bought one to :(.

My Blood Sugar Level Is Rising

My fabulous friend Tenah took me out to dinner last night at Catch on Castro and Market, as a late birthday dinner for moi. We were joined by her 2 friends Rich and Robert, who were just as fabulous. I've been to Catch for brunch, but never for dinner. The food was awesome, and so was the company.
