California Weekend | Cinequest 2018 & Seeds

Posted on

Mark and I went to California this weekend! The purpose was to see my sister, and attend the ‘Seeds’ film premiere at Cinequest Film Festival. Made it into San Francisco Thursday night and had dinner at ‘wonderful’ a really delicious Hunan Chinese restaurant in Millbrae. Her boyfriend knew the menu well- we had a great time. I’m very proud of the life she’s made for herself there and was happy to celebrate an early birthday with her. 

Friday we walked around the pier and Ferry Building Marketplace. Ate breakfast burritos and hung out before catching the Caltrain to San Jose. It was a smooth, quiet ride. Got off in Sunnyvale and were able to meet Mark's friend who works at Apple, and see the campus! It's so crazy and beautiful- got lunch together and took a little tour. From there, we Uber'd (my referral code is andreac2181ue and if you use Ibotta- QSABWBM for $1 off all Uber rides) to the Fairmont Hotel, and started festiva-ting.

Seeing everyone from the film who was able to come, was so great. I think the premiere went well - it was Saturday at the California Theatre. Really grateful to Owen and Younny Long as well as the whole cast and crew, for making the experience possible. Here is a review by Fanboy Planet, and an article by Screen Anarchy

Thank you to Wearaway, Salon Three Sixty One and Kevin Johnn for helping me feel confident and beautiful. (I meant to try out Stylebee but the timing didn't work out- if you want to- my code is achen25 for $20 off!)

And most of all to Mark for being the string to my kite, the tree to my vine, my rock, everything- all the things. I love exploring together.
