SF Chinatown Landmark
A traditional landmark where we had taken photos together when we first visited SF Chinatown in 2000 (or 1997?).

SF Chinatown Library
Shirley and I went there to apply for library cards. We borrowed some books in order to come up with some idea on the baby’s Chinese name, and we also borrowed some English and Chinese story books. She read the story books to the baby inside the tummy at night.

SF Chinatown Bookstore
We went there to buy a baby poster. Shirley believed that if she looked at the baby poster every day, our baby will be as cute as the baby in the poster. It turns out to be true.

SF Chinatown Supermarket
We liked to shop in this supermarket as this is close to her Citibank. It has a good variety of goods, and the price is right.

They had $1 for 4 buns and also a lot of variety. Shirley liked to buy different types of cake pieces there.

One of the staff there was Citibank customer. She knew Shirley and she would give her extra egg tarts when we bought there. That’s why I always wanted to buy from there, but Shirley was shy and felt embarrassed.

It was right opposite Citibank and was tourist famous for their egg tarts. There was always a long line waiting.

Shirley had worked in this Citibank for her last 2 years.

This one was close to Citibank. Shirley did not like to eat there, but she would buy takeout from the restaurant.

This restaurant was opened in 2006 (or 2005). They had branches in Oakland and Richmond district. They had $1 red bean drink and $2 noodle soup at afternoon tea time. Shirley was so-so about this restaurant but I liked to go there a lot.

This restaurant opened until very late and had a lot of variety of dishes. We had dinner with Frank, Sharon, Yuchih, and Steve here.
