Heeze’s Bday-Night One.

Posted in fun by krisyee on June 2, 2011

Last week we celebrated my cousin Karl’s birthday. He’s not my real cousin, but you know how it is in the Bay…somebody always knows someone else you know. In this case…his family and mom is friends with one of my uncles. So last Thursday we headed out to Nightlife at the Academy of Science. It was pretty cool even though I was only there for the last hour or so. Unfortunately I didn’t get to see all the exhibits…meaning someone has to bring me again. Lol

So true…

How a snake sees us.

Ran into these chicas!


After the Academy of Science we headed out to Otis where we met up with everyone else.





Posted in fun, SF Giants, weekend by krisyee on May 23, 2011

I started off my weekend by running errands all morning and early afternoon on Friday. That night I headed down to the ball park for Battle of the Bay aka Giants vs. A’s. I missed out on the snuggies that night 😦 It’s okay though, I have one from last year…except mine doesn’t say world champs on it. We found out that one of the best places to stand and watch the game is the second floor of where the Coke bottle is. For one, you can see the game better than if you’re standing in the standing room area. Second, you get to people watch; I saw two different guys in handcuffs and I saw people I knew that had no clue I saw them. Haha

After the Giants won in the 10th inning (yes I had to throw that in there), I headed out to Pier 23. The homies from Lifted Roots were performing and it was a chill ass reggae night.

The next day I headed down to San Mateo where my friend Jess was having a garage sale to raise money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. I brought a lot of stuff to donate but then I of course ended up buying some stuff. Mainly books.

I think I donated about 15 pairs of shoes…two pairs being my shoes for junior and senior prom.

There was a litte girl next door that made cupcakes to sell…then she gave all the money she made to Jess to donate. Cutest thing ever…and delicious cupcakes!

My cousins from Vancouver/Richmond were visiting…no need to explain this picture. Boo Canucks! Lol

I ended up going out Saturday night but I was too busy being all over the place that I forgot to take my camera out of my purse. Trae and I hit up Bruno’s first and then we headed over to Minna. Fun nights like those are always the best.

High 5’s & Apple Pies

Posted in food, fun, vacay by krisyee on May 17, 2011

So back to our trip to Seattle/Tacoma…we flew in early Saturday morning and checked in early at the hotel. Then we headed to a restaurant called China Star. Pat’s girlfriend’s family owns the restaurant and so they held his graduation lunch there.

Our view from our patio of our hotel room.

Pat’s girlfriend Jenny brought us to a flight simulator! I probably had the most fun here. Haha The machine actually moves like you’re in a plane and when you walk inside it’s like you’re in the cockpit. The windows are a big screen so you can set what airport you’re flying out of. Ours was set to SFO of course.

Reg and I! We took turns on flying.

About to take off!

I’m flying over San Francisco.

After that we headed to Seattle to drop some people off at the Space Needle.

Then we headed to High 5 Pie. Reg is a foodie and found this place online. They’re known for their various kinds of pies; pies in a jar, “cutie pie”, lollipop pies…I didn’t really take any photos of the pies…because we ended up eating them…but Reg might have some pics on her blog. It was SO delicious. Reg ordered a peanut butter & chocolate pie that was seriously one of the best tasting pies I have ever had. Besides my apple cutie pie and lollipop pie, I ordered a chocolate cream pie that was pretty good. It wasn’t too heavy like most chocolate pies are. But it was still filling with chocolate delight! Like I said, I didn’t get pictures of the place or all their pies, but I loved the way the place looked. It has that vintage 1950’s look to it with vintage looking appliances.

After that we headed to Paseo. Reg really wanted to try the pulled pork sandwiches which is what they’re known for, but unfortunately they were sold out and we ended up getting a regular rice place dish. I got the chicken which was good but a little dry.

After that we met everyone else up at the Underworld Tour. Something I didn’t know about Seattle, it’s pretty much built on top of another city. So the photos I have are actually underground where there were once buildings and streets. The tour was pretty funny because it was vulgar and talks a lot about whores and prostitutes but at the same time it was interesting.

To see the pics continue reading!  (more…)

My Pacman Weekend

Posted in food, fun, SF by krisyee on May 9, 2011

While half of the Bay Area was in Vegas for the Pacquiao fight, I had a chill weekend with the homies from Philly and a taste of my past.

Meesh and Portia were home visiting from Philly so we brought them to our old stomping ground at a Mediterranean Restaurant called Pride of the Mediterranean on Fillmore. To be honest, I don’t usually order food there. If anything I’ll order fries (so typical of me). But if you wanna chill with some hot tea and hookah it’s definitely a good place to go. Make sure the owner, Sharky, helps you out. He’s a really cool guy and always takes care of his customers.

The next day I spent the afternoon in Chinatown. I headed for the Cameron House Carnival. Cameron House was originally a missionary for Asian women during the late 1870’s. For years now they’ve held summer day camps, youth groups and many other programs to help the community. My parents used to go to Cameron House and before my freshman year of high school they forced me to spend the summer as a day camp leader. I hated the idea of it but once I started going I grew to love it. I got to meet a ton of great people, including some that I’m still in touch with, and I give all the credit to Cameron House for teaching me  how to get around in the city (I lived in the suburbs at the time). Every year Cameron House throws a carnival to raise money for day camps and youth groups and since I didn’t go the last few years I decided I should go. I definitely felt old. Majority of “my kids” (the ones that I was a leader for, meaning they were anywhere from 1st-8th grade at the time) are in college or have already finished college. But it was good seeing some familiar faces. Btw, have you ever watched The Pursuit of Happyness? I believe the basketball scene was filmed on the upper deck basketball court there (I could be wrong, but I’m pretty sure it was).

The homie AJ was in the dunk booth. Haha

Later that night, after getting chicken wings and my favorite chow fun from Chinatown, I headed to Augs’ place to bbq and watch the Pacquiao fight. The homeboys were in Vegas and so the girls (+ Fern) decided to bbq.

Now meet the dogs.


Jameson with his floppy ear.


Augs gave Tubbs a spare rib bone to chew on…he decided I needed a bone in my crotch. If you don’t get it…don’t ask.

Now off I go with a busy week ahead of me!

Great Company. Great Music.

Posted in events, food, fun, jams by krisyee on May 3, 2011

Man have I been busy. The past two weekends have been crazy but filled with a lot of fun and laughter. Last weekend one of my closest friends got married (which I will post later) and this weekend was full of great company and good music. Friday night I headed out with some of my girls for an all girls dinner at Limón on Valencia in San Francisco. The food was freakin delicious. We tried a prefixed menu that served three of the cold appetizers, three warm appetizers and three of the main dishes. The sangria was pretty damn good…probably even better than Cha Cha Chas…

I had work all day Saturday and then headed out to Santa Clara with my friend Trae for the J Boog concert. I effin loved it. It was nice to be one of the shorter ones in the club. Haha

J Boog was awesome and if you don’t know who he is…maybe you’ve heard his song “Let’s Do it Again”. It makes me wanna be in Hawaii soooooooo bad.

Sunday I managed to make it to work in the morning and later that night headed out to Yoshi’s in SF for Goapele’s concert. It was probably the third time I’ve seen her in concert and she’s just as amazing as the first time. If you’ve never seen her, I suggest going.

Augs and Trae put me on a new artist by the name of Mateo and he happened to record a song with Goapele. So he showed up on stage with her to perform it. I absolutely love this song and can’t get this shit out of my head.

Successful weekend to say the least. Now to tackle this coming week and have another awesome weekend.


Posted in fun, random by krisyee on April 5, 2011

Thanks for the birthday greetings last week everyone! I haven’t had time to blog about it because I was hungover the next day, went to work the day after that and then headed to LA for the weekend. I actually didn’t do much on my birthday but the night before was when I partied. We headed to Sloane Tuesday night for my midnight birthday shot. I don’t know what I was thinking trying to go snowboarding the next day (which btw, didn’t happen)! Thanks to everyone who came out. I realized what great friends and support I have in my life. 🙂


Shredding in Powder

I like how my friend Mike snuck up on me like a ninja and was recording me. I didn’t realize it until the end of the video, good thing I didn’t randomly stop. This was a day trip on February 26th, definitely one of the best day trips I’ve had in awhile. Since I hit up some black diamonds that day, next time will be progression parks.

One of The Most Amazing Weekends EVER.

Posted in fun, vegas by krisyee on March 8, 2011

Friday afternoon I headed down to Vegas with the ladies for Steph’s bachelorette party. Hands down one of the best times I’ve ever had! But unfortunately I can’t expose everything we did. Haha It was an amazing weekend with bachelorette debauchery (according to Reg), Mason’s 3rd birthday, going to sleep when the sun was rising, being on the plane hungover, and ending the weekend with Meiche’s baby shower.

But first thing’s first, Steph’s bachelorette party. We made Steph shirts that had her face on them. Haha People on the plane actually bought her shots!

And so the night began…

The first stop was reservations at Botero in the Encore. We all got different dishes from scallops, steak, fish and chicken and every single one of the dishes was delicious. I didn’t take photos of the food or the ambiance, but it was a really good restaurant. Plus I’m easily satisfied when it comes to food and a sucker for meat (steak) that melts in your mouth and whipped potatoes, lol.  🙂 We headed downstairs of the Wynn to have some drinks. If you know me, you know I’ve had a thing for Jager bombs lately…this is called a cherry bomb. Cherry vodka and cherry liqueur in Redbull. The vodka and liqueur is suctioned in the cup, so you pull the cup up to release the alcohol. It was pretty good and tasted like cherry cough syrup! Lol

We headed out to Tryst where we used up 18 free drink tickets (thanks to a cool ass promoter) and then we headed out to XS where the night was just getting started…these are all you’re going to see from this night though…Haha

The next day I ended up leaving the girls for a couple hours to head over to my cousin’s 3rd birthday at Chuck E Cheese (always gotta make time for the fam!)…I’ll post that a little later though. It’d be a little awkward seeing all these pictures of girls partying and then you see a little 3 year old boy out of nowhere. Haha That night we got ready early to stop by Queue Bar in the Cosmopolitan. Had a few drinks and headed out to a buffet and show. It was originally a Madonna themed bachelorette party, but we decided to surprise the bride by wearing all black with red bow-ties to act as her groom.

I’ve known her since 1st grade…she hated me…and I hated her. Lol But came out to be one of my closest friends since then.

After the show we headed back to the Cosmopolitan to hit up Marquee. That place is freakin crackin. Too bad the hip hop room was hella packed. Instead we met a crazy girl outside that couldn’t stop telling us how cute we all looked…she did however buy us a round of drinks!

You know it was a successful trip when I had an hour of sleep and ended up looking like this at the airport. Not to mention my make up was still on from the night before…along with my hair.

Congrats to Steph and I can’t wait for your wedding where you will start the next chapter in your life! Great times with the ladies.

Find Me…

Can I bring anymore pairs of shoes? Actually…I took a pair out after I took this picture…haha
