Visiting San Francisco Bay Area Costco – March 2015

March 2015

It was an exciting weekend.  I visited Costco in San Francisco Bay Area.  Flying from Burbank to Oakland was just about an hour.  I rarely leave my comfort zone.  It was exciting to face the unknown.

Friday: I arrived at San Francisco Bay area late evening. The first thing I noticed was that people seemed classier in San Francisco Bay Area.  We went to a fast food restaurant for a late night bite.  Young people working there were classier than what I was used to.  Later, a bunch of high-school kids walked in for Friday night fun.  It was a group of kids in mixed races.  They were all well behaved, quiet, and classy.  Throughout the weekend, I saw nothing but classy people.  People were different there.  It was strange, and I liked it.

Saturday: We took BART, a public transportation subway system, to down town San Francisco for lunch.  It was not busy because today was Saturday.  But, now I know how people in the Bay area commute to the big city every day.

I had a good, authentic Chinese food for lunch.  Then I learned that they didn’t take credit cards. Pretty much all restaurants in China Town had “Cash Only” signs.

Sunday: We went to Costco in Danville (San Francisco Bay Area).  The entire warehouse looked familiar, except they had an insane amount of coffees.  They had about twice as many coffee varieties compared to Costco in my area.  For example, at my Costco we have Peet’s coffee (Major Dickason’s Blend).  At Danville Costco, they had Peet’s Coffee AND Peet’s Coffee Organic.  Most coffees had organic versions at extra cost. 

It was cool to see San Francisco Giant “World Series Champion” hoodies.  I felt the patriotism.

I didn’t buy anything because I was flying back home in a few hours.

It was a glorious weekend I will never forget.  Good times..

Costco Shopping – March 25, 2015

Good times. 🙂

I went to Costco after work for a quick shopping, and I sampled this amazing fish stick.  “Please have some more,” the lady said.  So, I took one more sample and took a bag home.

I thought garlic flavored olive oil was interesting.  I shall give it a try, but I like it already.

Costco pineapples are so good and so cheap.

I cut the rotisserie chicken in half and vacuum packed it for later (single life 101).  It’s a lot of bird for one person that I often get sick of it half way through.  This vacuumed packed half chicken will be good for several months.

Palmolive dish soap is really good.  I compared Palmolive with cheaper brand.  Palmolive is thicker and stronger.. and it cleans more.  Cheaper brands are watered down.  They are quite frustrating.

Instant coupons saved $7.50.

Costco Shopping – March 13, 2015

It was a big shopping day at Costco.  I also did car wash and pumped gas in my car.

I bought staple items such as kitchen sponges, frozen foods, pancake mix, shampoo, conditioner, toilet papers, and laundry detergent.  They will last a few months. Kitchen sponges and pancake mix will last over a year.

Coupons saved $39.80

Frozen edamame & broccoli florets are quality food items.  They are tasty and ready to eat in a few minutes.  And they are good for you.  I would snack on these instead of potato chips. I try to make small effort here and there so I can enjoy healthy life-style.

I bought melatonin & Beano for the first time.  Lately I find myself traveling and sleeping over at strange places.  I shall try them and see if they will enhance my life-style.  (embarrassing).

I treated myself with turkey jerky.  Yum.

San Francisco & Georgia – Stories coming up

I’ve been busy.  But, for good reasons.

I went to Costco in San Francisco Bay area.  AND, I went to Costco in Atlanta Georgia.  It was super fun.  Crazy good times. 🙂  I love Georgia.  How come we don’t have Waffle House and Cracker Barrel in California?  Anyway…

Stories coming up.

Please let me know if I can visit you for the weekend.  Anywhere in the world.  You don’t have to take me to Costco.  I just want to experience different life, relax, and make memories.
