Fleet week in San Francisco

Fleet Week SF happened in Oct 9 and Oct 10 of 2021. It’s exciting to see them back again. We didn’t have it last year due to COVID-19 restrictions.

The highlights are Patriots Jets and Blue Angels. It’s amazing display of air supremacy and a visual treat. I gotta let my ears rest after this event.

Hope you enjoyed it as much as we did.

Heart shape.
Watching Patriot Jets.

Walgreens to close 5 stores

The company said retail theft at its San Francisco stores has risen to five times the chain’s average.

“What I want people who commit these crimes to understand: your mother, your grandmother, your relatives, they depend on places like Walgreens and CVS and Targets where they have pharmacies to get their medications,” San Francisco Mayor London Breed said. “So, when these locations close in a community, then the entire community loses.”

Walgreens already closed nearly a dozen stores in the city over the past two years.

300 Gough St.Nov. 152145 Market St.
3400 Cesar Chavez St.Nov. 172690 Mission St.

This saddens me. The municipal government needs to do more to protect these businesses. Businesses will do what is profitable for them. Getting robbed just isn’t good for business!

Mission district residents will be affected by the closure of the Walgreens at 3400 Cesar Chavez St.

Mr. Holmes Bakehouse in Singapore

I’m sad that Mr. Holmes Bakehouse closed down during the pandemic. I can only assume the business became one of the many casualties of COVID-19. They are creators of these Instagramable cup cakes, definitely sad to see them gone from Larkin St.

Interestingly they are still in Singapore.

Find them at:

Daily: 8am – 8pm

Colors of Richmond District

I got a chance to visit the Richmond District. Here are some pictures.

I used to play these gachapon machines back in Singapore. They are here too at Genki Crepes & Mini Mart:

New Lien Hing Supermarket has tasty fruits.

Found a fabric shop at Richmond District. Fabrix has a great selection of textile and even leather.

This is where you can find all the Asian sauces. You can make a mean Singapore Hainanese Chicken Rice from Richmond New May Wah Supermarket:

You can also find the much coveted pandan cake mix. We get these pandan sponge cake in Singapore and it’s hardly found here in San Francisco. These are from Indonesia!
