Lots of visitors

My parents just left this past weekend. My mom visited for almost two weeks, and my dad visited for four days. It's always nice seeing my parents. They've been so busy for the past 10 years, and it's only recently that they have been able to spend time traveling to the States a bit more.

Ed and Dasol (or should I say Mrs. Sul kekeke) were here too - Ed was interviewing in Santa Clara. We met up last Saturday and got lunch at a delicious Taiwanese Hot Pot restaurant by my apartment called Tasty Pot.

Today, Esther will be flying here for a business trip - on Valentine's Day! Perfect timing. Unfortunately, she'll only be staying for one night. Yutaro comes into town tomorrow, and Isaac will fly in day after tomorrow.

Weekend Plans

I'm trying to make plans to chill in Mission Dolores Park. It's a great outdoor space where an extremely diverse crowd of people hang out. As one article puts it - it's San Francisco's favorite park for mindless frolicking. The culture here is extremely free-spirited, and you'll find people ranging from couples, yuppies, hippies, students, to entire families.

Other than that, I've been toying with the idea of going on a hike somewhere. OR, since it's the first time Isaac and Yutaro have been to SF (in quite awhile), maybe we'll explore the city.

Payton & Exul

Adi, one of my best friends and partners in crime, is thinking about moving to SF in June. This section is titled Payton & Exul because those were our World of WarCraft character names. I was Payton, the Night Elf rogue, and he was Exul, the human warrior. If you're wondering why my characters name was Payton, I'll enlighten you. It was a tribute to my then B-List celebrity crush, Peyton Sawyer from One Tree Hill.

Peyton Sawyer

Don't worry, I intentionally spelled it differently. This way, if my friends asked why I was called Payton, I could just say I named my character after Gary Payton and not feel like a huge bitch.

Gary Payton

I'm not even a Gary Payton fan. Lolz.


I've been trying to decide if I want to stay in SF for awhile, and I think I've reached the decision to stay for one more year. Adi is one of the few people who I trust and is truly down to grind for greatness. I'm excited to see what we'll be able to do this year.
