Burgus Plus world tour

Recommended Posts

Looks like a good time...I remember revisiting my elementary school when I was doing updates for the Flat Head world tour...It's def. a trip to see how things have/haven't changed...One of the things I love about these tours/contests/etc. is that they make you do things you might not otherwise get to experience!

quick update, these last two days have been pretty boring, just work and shitty rainy weather. would have a few more pictures but technical difficulties with my new phone corrupted them. anyways

went to work with my dad on the house, mom bought some chinese pastries for breakfast. grow up on these pastries for breakfast. whats in the box, bbq pork buns, hot dog buns (my college roommate and i always debated on what kind of hotdog they put in there because amazing, but they have to be cheap because they only cost 70 ish cents per bun), coconut buns, and my favorite pineapple buns with custard in the middle.

2010-12-12_11-01-44_348.jpg

mom also bought some of these cookies, basically the best part of the pineapple bun (the top) made into a cookie. I remember when i was a kid my parents would get the plain pineapple buns without custard, i would pick the top off and leave the rest. these cookies were a godsend haha.

2010-12-12_11-02-00_339.jpg

headed over to the new house to work on some odds and ends with my dad, The city is really small, one main road with restaurants, corner stores, and misc mom and pop bars and businesses. Not a supermarket in site.

2010-12-12_13-12-19_261.jpg

pretty nice suburb feel to it, theres one plaza that houses a bank of america, and misc independent restuarants. Only one fastfood there which is a subway.

2010-12-12_13-16-37_50.jpg

pretty cool they had a really small skate park with a half pipe and a few ramps and bars. couldnt get all of it i was driving and picture taking haha.

2010-12-12_13-29-42_817.jpg

helped my dad demolish the walls around these stairs, taking out sheetrock and stripping it down to the wall frames

hey everyone update from the last few days

Ending up without a car on wednesday after work so ended up taking public transportation homie, good day without any rain even some random chicken was talking the blocks with me haha.

2010-12-15_16-22-05_186.jpg

havent taken buses/trains for a while so this was a refreshing experience, took the bart (stretches really far throughout northern california) its like a dumbbed down NY MTA but so much cleaner in the station and inside the train.

2010-12-15_16-25-27_346.jpg

2010-12-15_16-26-48_134.jpg

cushioned seats make my ride back in the city so comfy

2010-12-15_16-29-08_436.jpg

when i got off felt like i was in high school again taking the bus home, from here it was the exact same route i took home.

2010-12-15_16-49-23_526.jpg

good ol 23 bus took me from the ghetto/projects to my asian neighborhood high school.

2010-12-15_16-49-30_620.jpg

2010-12-15_16-54-19_537.jpg

heres a mural right next to my house, seen it all my life. It was like the dividing line between the projects (2 blocks away) and the yuppie part of my neighborhood.

went out with a couple friends for wings and drinks at wing-stop, i like to say i can eat really spicy food, these were by far the spiciest wings i had ever had. Made my friends whole body sweat it was pretty funny. (if anyone ever goes to wing stop fair warning for the Atomic wings lol)

hey guys Christmas update.

pictures from tuesday, my friends are slowly filtering back to the city for winter break. My day off of work spent hanging out with them. Decided to get lunch. My friend suggested SF Cheesesteak, what a perfect idea, best cheese steak in san francisco.

got a side of onion rings too, never been to philly before but man cheese steak was good.

2010-12-21_14-16-26_763.jpg

ended up kicking it at my friends house the rest of the night watching the warriors game. afterwards headed to in & out for some late night muchies. Something about an in and out burger, secret sauce chopped up onions who knows.

animal style cheese burger.

2010-12-22_00-25-54_41.jpg

fast forward to wednesday, been raining all week and the style just started to clear up.

2010-12-22_16-21-48_0.jpg

didnt know it was a chinese holiday, but specially we were supposed to have this soupy dish. Not really sure what its called but its made up of white turnips, dried baby shrimp, chinese sausage, and instead of noodles rice flour rolled into balls. topped off with chives its a dish i grew up on and delious.

2010-12-22_18-20-45_600.jpg

christmas eve pretty quiet decided to take a stroll around the neighborhood passed by the park i used to play at as a kid, used to spend my whole afternoon there after school and heres a good view of the bay from my neighborhood

2010-12-24_15-48-45_709.jpg

2010-12-24_16-25-20_225.jpg

2010-12-25_22-24-33_375.jpg

on the chinese holiday i ate something too but pretty different from what you had. mine was called tang yuan which was actually glutinous rice balls with peanut filling inside. its cooked in a clear soup with rock sugar and pandan leaves. really good stuff. i think its meant to mark family reunion or something. haha. cheeseburger looks damn good! dont forget to put your name down in the pocket!

happy new year burgus! prolly one of my last updates before i ship out to the next person, havent been doing to much its been raining like mad here so just been lounging around here and there.

Stopped by the haight ashbury area to cheap out some snowboarding gear, villians. Haight is filled with so many smoke shops now its crazy, the whole vibe there still remains true to those hippy roots.

2010-12-26_15-15-15_23.jpg

headed out to get some lunch at a hole in the wall vietnamese place. got to love vietnamese sandwiches. i swear i can eat these all the time and not get tired of it.

2010-12-26_16-02-37_382.jpg

meet up with a group of old high school friends for dinner at this franchised brewery/resturant called Bjs. Nice atmosphere and everything but doesnt seem right to have franchised a brewery style resturant. but anyway go some deep dish pizza for everyone and roast beef dip for me. Decent food, did the job and got me full as fuck.

2010-12-26_16-02-37_382.jpg

finished the night off with a walk around and drinks around the city. passed by this asian salon. lol never got the concept of tattooing makeup

2010-12-29_22-54-25_35.jpg

One of the only days a didnt rain this week got a chance to head downtown.

errie mix of sunny overcast

2010-12-31_16-53-44_958.jpg

passed by the mission on my way. Part of me always liked the mission, mecha of mexican life in san francisco, good food, lots of .99 cent stores, just full of the most random things you can find anywhere else in the city.

2010-12-31_16-30-33_851.jpg

Thing about san francisco is that they still kind of run the cable car system. Only runs from middle of downtown san francisco to to the top of marina district. nice to ride on a good day.

2010-12-31_16-02-22_437.jpg

stopped at blondies pizza for lunch, best pizza in the city to me right now. a bit like a whole in the wall and always packed. I always go for the daily special, today the pesto chicken. Something they do with the crust just makes the pizza that much better,

2010-12-31_16-08-18_249.jpg

thats pretty much it for me, will do a last update soon.

Kai PMed me a few days ago about moving the tour on, he said he was going to wait for a few days to see if there was a response from a few others, his leg technically finished up last week, and ignoring skips, I'm next up. Hopefully he'll get back to me/us pretty quick and we can get rolling again.

quiets good i think, makes it feel more exclusive or special with a smaller group of people interacting over this and less randomness from others.

I've got the jeans now, would have done an update with pics, was having some computer trouble, but have secured a temporary computer while I laze on getting a new laptop (mine basically packed it in). I did manage to get some pics, and I have a short video to demonstrate how cold it is outside right now.

In pants related news, they shrank up pretty good in the wash, waist measuring around 29", so I'm doing a little stretching on it, fit is good everywhere but the waist, so it should be no problem (also I'm 5-10lbs heavier than when I signed up, but its been going down lately).

Sorry about the quality of the vid, but I hope it more or less gets the point across.

Nothing much happened today, nor do I expect much will go on till probably Thursday of Friday, as I have some work to get done, but I'll try to get some food/beverage updates in.
