Summer of Love - Music and Light at the Conservatory of Flowers

Summer of Love - Conservatory of Flowers bw
Summer is upon us. Summer of Love is also celebrating its 50th anniversary. And no better place to spend the Summer of Love than in San Francisco.

Mijo and I decided to check it out and relive the magic of The Summer of Love 50 years ago. We enjoyed the good food, great music and awesome light show at the Conservatory of Flowers in San Francisco's Golden Gate Park.

North Beach Festival happened last week during one of the warmest weekends of the year.  Great music, good food, friendly crowd, and great view. 

This is one of my favorite street fairs in one of my favorite neighborhoods in the city.

Sunday Street in the City - Stroll through the Great Highway

Sunday Streets SF - Great Highway sculptures bw
I love Sunday Streets. This is the time I get to explore a part of the city while getting our walking and exercise. A couple of Sundays ago, Sunday Streets went to the Great Highway and Golden Gate Park.

The weather was great and we got to know a part of the city that I have not been to on foot. Thank you Sunday Streets.

Parade in the City - Golden State Warriors victory parade

Dubs - 2017 Champions
The entire Dubnation is rejoicing once again. The Golden States Warriors are 2017 champions!

Eventhough I personally didn't win, it felt like I did. I feel so lucky to be living in the San Francisco Bay Area and to experience several championships in a decade. This place is truly a city of Champions. Congratulations

Cafe in the City - Vive La Tarte

Vive La Tarte - Sign
San Francisco is truly a place with plenty of cafe choices. Mijo and I stumbled into Vive La Tarte just because we had time to kill before going to see the musical Finding Neverland.

We loved Vive La Tarte. I went back the other day and finally tried one of their tarts. Love it!

After having a long day at work, both Mijo and I decided to meet up at Tap 415 under the dome of the SF Mall.

I joined again in this year's Presidio Trail Run as part of my employer's volunteer event. 

I like this race not only because of their community and social awareness but also the picturesque views along the race. I've posted the views in this blog. Enjoy!

Everyday Coffee in the City - Chit's Coffee

Chit's Coffee - Coffee Tasting bag bw
I just came back from a trip to the Philippines and my sister gave me a good Philippine made coffee as a souvenir called Chit's Coffee.

I had extra time yesterday so I did a little experiment. I did a coffee side by side tasting at home using this coffee as drip, pour over, french press and espresso. I had so much fun!

Everyday Coffee in the City - Major Dickason's Blend Dark Roast by Peet's Coffee and Tea

Peet's Coffee and Tea - Major Dickason's Blend Dark Roast
It has been a while since the last time we bought a bag of coffee that we really enjoy. This week, we are drinking a blend called Major Dickason's Blend Dark Roast by Peet's Coffee and Tea. 

We have paired this coffee with different snacks and its flavor is layered differently depending on the sweets and pastries we paired it with. We truly love this coffee.

Cirque in the City - Luzia by Cirque du Soleil

Cirque du Soleil - Luzia sign
It was Auntie Glo's idea to go see Luzia by Cirque du Soleil.  With another aunt Auntie Madz, Auntie Glo and I went to finally see it a week ago.

Eventhough this I've seen several Cirque du Soleil's shows, Luzia is refreshing and entertaining as if it was my first time seeing one.
