Wine tasting in Napa Valley - Taste of Beringer Tour at Beringer Vineyards

Beringer Vineyards - Sign bw
My good friend from high school Lizz and her hubby Rieks were in town from Singapore.  They are both wine enthusiasts so we thought of taking them to Napa Valley for a tour.

We decided to go to the more popular destinations in Napa Valley for their introduction to California wines. Beringer Vineyards did not disappoint.

Landmark in the City - Golden Gate Bridge views

Golden Gate Bridge - Golden Gate Bridge Vista Point bw
There are two seasons in San Francisco where the sky is fog-less and the views of the Golden Gate Bridge and the San Francisco Bay are unobstructed.

The past weekend didn't disappoint. Breathtaking views. It is one of my all time favorite views!

Musical in the City - Aladdin

Aladdin - Poster bw
Aladdin is based on one of my favorite fairy tales when I was a child and Disney turned it into a movie when I was a teenager and then it turned into a Broadway show a couple of years ago. This is why I was very excited when I heard Aladdin The Musical was coming to San Francisco.

It didn't disappoint. It is one of my all time favorite Broadway shows!

Smitten Creamery - Sign
Mijo and I recently found an innovative and good ice cream place with an urban vibe. We started going to Smitten Ice Cream on Valencia St.

Summer may be over but this place is definitely one of our go to ice cream places near the neighborhood.

Cafe south of the City - Mint and Honey in San Carlos

Mint and Honey - Sign bw
I went for a volunteer job at Habitat For Humanity in San Carlos and decided to go to Mint and Honey afterward.

I rarely venture out of the City for cafes. Mint and Honey was a great find in San Carlos. Quiet nook, friendly service and they serve good coffee. I'd go there again.

Race in the City - JP Morgan Chase Corporate Challenge

JPMC Corporate Challenge 17 - Sign
Thanks to my employer, I was able to join and run the JP Morgan Chase Corporate Challenge with my colleagues at work. 

This year, the route is longer a little over 3.5 miles and I still beat my record from 2014, 2015, and 2016 and I still had time to take pictures of the picturesque route.
