I’ve not hung out with Paul for a while.

But Paul was in the area working on the booties you purchase so we met up at Mission Pizza.

It has a sleaze factor, however there are new college type place and paper airplane looked like something to try. 

I’ll go back again as it was a fun place with accessible atmosphere. 

As a young teenager 20 years ago Laura stayed in Medford with marina and Doug to lean English. 

Sushi in Turlock 


saw this sushi place this day and decided to try it this day.

The only non-Asian employee in the place convinced me to have my favorite flying fish roe and quail egg sushi.

The sushi was okay but it sure taste good after those three soccer games.

Found this cute little BBQ place call the hot city barbecue and bistro. The pork sandwich was excellent!


Second visit to the Rok with the God Son


drinks with Natalee and Jair and CMD. 

We started with the professors beer which came in a bottle the size of a wine bottle. 

I had the buffalo. The first time I ever tried something like that. Yes it was good!

Jair had the steak and the girls had salmon and a beef bowl. 

And the the chocolate fondue dessert was yummy. 

We could have talked for ever talking about friends and adventures.

Luis Carlos talked about his research and how long he might stay in San Diego. He had a burrito. 

Silvia is looking to house sit or care give for a few years. I forget what she ordered. 



Balboa park happy hour at the prado restaurant


After a walk around looking a buildings and street magicians and a easy going Sunday afternoon crowd. Silvia and I stopped for drinks at the prado restaurant bar area. 

Silvia had a corona and I tried the not fruity enough savioung blanc. My second glass of wine was a much better Pinot noir. 



The Rok in San Jose for dinner 


ah it was a hot rock and meat event. 

This is a fairly fancy restaurant with a great way of serving meat. Tonight it was beef and chicken. 

The desert was tasty. Chocolate fondue. 



Asia pearl for dim sum


it was a father and son Sunday brunch is dum sum at Asia pearl in Fremont. 

Rudy got to visit with DMK and Paul and I got to talk whatever Paul wanted to talk about. 

The steamed pork buns were good as was the haukou and sumou. 

The specialty items Paul ordered didn’t work out well.
