David at Accademia

Duomo, picture still don't quite do justice here....

Background of Palazzo Vecchio, roof top of Galleria Uffizi Firenze, but Wei Yang is more interested in the pigeons...

Summer fruits - July

Summer has gone by fast.  For this year, it wasn't as hot as I would like it to be.   We did get to hang out quite a bit in our backyard tho.  But the cats only got to hang out once at the backyard this summer. :P

Our summer fruit trees were doing great this year. We finally got have our fruits!! Last year... we had only one pluot, and the squirrels ate the rest of them all!!  Darn squirrel!

This year, we covered the entire pluot tree, and the peach tree.  Yay!  The squirrel lost!  However, this year round, our 13th-months Wei Yang ate 95% of all those blueberries, peach, pluots, tangerine that we had.  I did make some peach flavored drinks for CP.... while I enjoyed sipping away my favourite Malaysian instant ice coffee. :)

Total neglect of our garden but luckily it doesn't look like it was "abandoned".  Thanks to our gardener... it's looking ok.

San Diego

Outside USS Midway Museum

This post is way overdue.  This mid August, we went to San Diego for a short trip... flew from SFO to San Diego with our little man via Virgin America. It was our first domestic flight with our little man this year, after our long international trip in early January this year. Flying with a baby in a domestic flight was quite a different experience when compared with an international one. No bassinet, no extra space... nada!  The last domestic trip with WY was from Fort Lauderdale to SFO in 2011 Nov.  It was a disaster!  Clearly not enough sleep for my five month old.  The trip was absolutely miserable.  This time round, it went awesome... WY snoozed all the way on me. :)  Maybe it was just a short trip.  Let's see how this coming up trip flying to Europe goes!

Anyway, we enjoyed yummy sushi... tried this fusion Italian food at this excellent yelp review of Cucina Urbana.... YUM!!  Had some awesome Mexican food at downtown, Taco Express... of course, gotta have the dessert from Extraordinary Desserts.  The desserts are quite extraordinary indeed, but not the service!

Here're some pictures from our trip:

Yumm... sweet potato fries!

Wy's lunch and my brunch.

We drove to beautiful La Jolla Cove as well.  The weather was great!  There were a lot of ppl snorkeling, diving, kayaking and kids were having fun swimming.... esp when the seals came up close to them!  The kids were so excited!  More pics..
