Today Daddy wanted to go wine tasting in Napa. I got a recommendation to try a famous restaurant in Rutherford but by the time we got there it was an hour wait. So we drove down the road and ended up at “Go Fish“. The food and service were excellent. I loved the sturgeon, the […]

More importantly the white beans were fermenting all throughout the night. Come on admit it! Afterwards we revived the card game a**hole, in which I ended up the… well you […]

This year we went to Auntie Amy’s for Christmas Eve. As she usually does, there was enough food to feed ten families and everything was terrific. After dinner Jen & Rick whipped out their Wii unit. Now I’m not into video games but I’ll have to admit I had fun. Special Thanks to Lyle for […]

I slept in this morning… cuz , well I’m on vacation. My day was uneventful, then Sandy came home and she wanted to go shopping for some Filipino goods to mail out. So off to Union City we went. After a little splurge in Goldilocks, I was treated to my first Jollibee experience. I’ve been […]

Still another gloomy day. I spent the morning trying to record one of my favorite songs, Wahine Ilikea, on my 4 track recorder. Man this is tough. Just when you think that your voice isn’t all that bad… you record it. Holy smoke, I need some vocal lessons! I also worked on my Nakamastu Christmas […]

Another wet day. I had great aspirations about this vacation, driving all over Northern California taking billions of photos. I did start on the layout of my gag gift, more on that later. I then started to work on a musical recording. I finished the day with a trip to the grocery store to make […]

Tonight we visited downtown Livermore to see Jon play at the newly constructed Bankhead Theater. Needless to say the Jon’s performance was incredible. Afterwards we drove around for miles looking for a place that was open for a dinner at 11:45. We finally ended up at an Applebee’s. I had the three mini bacon cheeseburgers […]
