Life in Pics: September 29 – October 5, 2014

It had been a very freakish hot week in the Bay Area. The temperature climbed all the way up to the 90s starting on Wednesday. Aside from the BART ride that felt like a sauna, the weather has been gorgeous in San Francisco. But really, I am ready for pumpkin and sweater weather! I am so done with summer!


  • Returned from Las Vegas yesterday. Took an extra day off to catch up on house chores and shopping at Costco.


  • Back to work! BF’s car battery went dead as I was leaving for work. Since I have AAA membership, it was a nice excuse for me to go to work a little late to enjoy my coffee and pumpkin iced cookies at home while waiting for roadside assistance.
  • I discovered a new place to get a banh mi. Turtle Tower is famous for chicken pho but I found out that I could get a banh mi here for $4.75 (with tea!) that I could customize. I chose a yummy combination of  pate, ham and chicken.
  • A spam musubi from Manna Food Truck that my co-worker gave me. Yum! 🙂


  • Just like yesterday, work was so busy! I barely got out of the building but managed to do a quick walk to the farmers market. Got a basket of heirloom tomatoes because the colors were so pretty. But I wished I could have enjoyed the weather more.
  • Umm, I went back for another banh mi at Turtle Tower. 🙂


  • The temperature climbed up to the 80s. BART was like a sauna on my evening commute. It was pure torture!


  • Another fun Friday morning work party! Could not resist a slice of red velvet cake and a cup of Starbucks at our work party. Gosh, it felt so good to bite into something I was craving for at the moment – like a piece of delish cake!
  • It was so hot that we decided to just have an antipasti for Friday night dinner: cured meats, cheese and wine.


  • No date night! It was a super- hot day! We were too drained to go out. We just ordered pizza, napped and watched our favorite TV shows. (Then I found out that most of my friends had the same idea to just stay home because of the heat.)


  • Drove early to San Jose and went to church with my parents and nephew. It was 95 degrees in San Jose! I was dying!
  • My mom cooked nilaga or boiled beef soup (special request by me), fried fish and garlic rice for lunch! Nothing beats mom’s cooking! YUM!
  • Watched a little football (Go, Niners!) then went shopping with my parents at Costco and Filipino store. It was cute to watch my dad and my 11 yo nephew make a meal out of the Costco samples. A fun afternoon with my mom, dad and nephew.

Still waiting for pumpkin spice latte weather!

Welcome to Deliciously. My warm and snug little space in this big, wild world. This blog is about my everyday life in San Francisco (where I work) and Oakland (where I live). I strive to live a life that is full of gratitude, coziness and simple joys. This is my personal journal and photo album where I post photos of lovely things that I capture on camera, travels and delicious meals that I share with my family and friends. Just a simple, happy blog. Thank you for stopping by! -- Leah
