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.
