SF’07: Day 7

Travelogue July 16th, 2007

Good morning SF! Really early though! Haha… and oh, I am having a little hang over this morning. :S

I spent the whole of yesterday executing the drive downtown and across the Golden Gate Bridge. It was quite a cool and dim day, and there was this fog that was forming over the bridge. It was quite scary because apparently there is a minimum speed and because of the fog, I could only see the car in front of me. The best thing for me to do was just to keep in line.

So, where was I heading to? I didn’t really have any idea. After crossing the bridge, I was apparently on this highway (to nowhere?) and not too sure of where I was heading to. In the end, I saw an exit and proceeded to it. This exit led to some neighbourhood which was going up a hill… and I drove and drove. At the summit, I decided to stop and take a breather. Gosh! The view from the summit was significant! From there, I was able to see the bridge and SF and the air was good. πŸ˜‰

On my way back, I stopped by a cafe to get some food back, and guess what?!?! I met an ex-colleague of mine! Haha.. I didn’t expect to see him there at all. Apparently, he’s working for a financial institution now and is based in SF for a while. After some catching up and small talk, we agreed to meet up for a drink yesterday night. Little did I know what was in store…

Met him outside the place where I was staying and we cabbed down to… *gasp* a gay pub! Haha… I’ve never been to a gay pub before and it’s quite an eye opener. Apparently most of the patrons are asian, although you can probably spot a caucasian or 2. There were also girls in the pub so I didn’t feel too left out. It was some event night and the whole place was jam packed. Amidst the crowd are girls dancing on bar tops as well as bare chested men flexing their bods on pedestals!

Soon after, we order some housepour drinks but could barely talk. The music was nice, but a little too loud for my liking. The bartender made some extra drinks for me, but I couldn’t quite figure what it was. πŸ™ What I do know was that I nearly got wasted. Sigh. I’m not really an enthusiast of alcoholic drinks. Should just stick to mocktails next time. πŸ˜›

Thank goodness my friend gave me a lift back. By then, I was too lightheaded but thankfully I was still able to walk a straight line. Haha… no more pubs for the rest of the trip. πŸ˜›
