Date Days: baseball, burgers, & beer with B = a few favorite things allin one

We didn’t really plan on going to many games or any games at all this year because we should be saving money, but he really wanted to see the players get their rings. Plus, he really wanted the replica too. haha. I also ended up seeing one of my cousins too, but didn’t get to converse since we were both in different lines.

It’s nice to be back at AT&T Park. Idk why, but I really love the vibe of everything whenever I’m there. Not sure if it’s the vibe of baseball in general or if it’s the Giants vibe. I just know I don’t feel the same vibe when I’m watching the Warriors or the Niners.
It was such a nice day out. It’s been so nice in SF lately so of course we all should take advantage of the sunny weather. It did start getting cold after sunset. I haven’t been to a game in a while so I need to remember to bring another jacket with me next time I go to a night game.

They had people sky dive to present the first like 4 rings or so. I’ve never been to the previous ring ceremonies so it was cool seeing this for the first time.

They serve milk tea now!

vacuum cleaner x cute wrapping paper

My co-workers are awesome because they got me a vacuum cleaner for my Secret Santa gift & wrapped it with my favorite wrapping paper. I know, it’s an extremely late Secret Santa gift. There was a mix-up with the Secret Santa thing a couple weeks ago that ended up with me not getting a gift at all because apparently, no one “picked” me.

To be honest, finding out that no one had me made me feel left out, sad, & under appreciated.
For one thing, I didn’t even want to do Secret Santa in the first place because at the time around Christmas, I didn’t have much money to get my siblings or my mom anything & then it made me feel worse finding out that I got a gift for my Secret Santa, but no one even got me.
The whole concept of Secret Santa is to get a gift for someone & then receive something in return. If you got a gift, but didn’t get one for someone else in return, then you shouldn’t be participating at all. The honest thing to do would’ve been to say, “Oh, you didn’t have to get me a gift because I don’t plan on participating.” instead of accepting a gift & then leaving someone else out of it. & if you don’t plan on participating, don’t pick a name out of the bag & then not put it back. It ruins & throws off the whole cycle of it all.
Second, I felt that I care a lot (almost too much in fact) about work & I work extremely hard to follow the rules & do as I’m told. & I find out that I ended up getting left out of the Secret Santa which was supposed to be an event that all of the co-workers could share together. It just made me feel super left out & sad about the whole ordeal.
I know I sound all super sensitive about the whole thing, but I already feel so left out of other areas in my life that it made me feel even worse that I felt left out at work too.

Aside from the whole Secret Santa mix-up, I’m happy with my gift that my other co-worker ended up getting for me anyway even though she already had someone else. I know at my age, it’s a weird thing to want. Everyone my age either wants money, gift cards, shoes, makeup, brand name hand bags, or concert tickets. But everyone at work knows that I’ve been wanting a vacuum cleaner for 2 years already. LOL. It’s just that the good ones are super expensive, but I am so grateful that I have this mini one for my room now ^_^ & it was also wrapped with cute wrapping paper! Toy Story is such a classic movie & I love the little aliens.
To be honest, I wasn’t even expecting it. I just love it so much because it was extremely thoughtful that when I say things like, “I really want [item inserted here]”, it isn’t just nonchalantly going in one ear & out the other. To me, it’s just meaningless conversations to pass the time only to have my words registered in another person’s mind & THAT is what made it special.

Thank you to my kind co-workers that actually listen & remember all the random things I say at work :p

Sushiritto x PlenTea x Pineapples

My niece is on Spring Break this week so I decided to take her out since she said she hasn’t done anything all week ): I’ve been busy working, but after I got off we headed to SF to eat & then headed to the beach after. I’ll make a separate post for the photos I took at the beach whenever I’m done going through them+editing. I was pretty exhausted since I had work, but I think I was also lacking energy because I hadn’t eaten yet.

Grabbed Sushirrito before they closed. I always get the same thing now because I really like shrimp & I like tempura so having both is a win for me. After grabbing food, we headed over to PlenTea.

I finally got my order right this time! The first time we went here, I got the sea salt oolong crema & I didn’t like it. I think it’s because I didn’t shake it, but in general I don’t like sea salt so I never got that again. The second time, I got the brown sugar pudding milk tea & I messed up that time too because I ordered taro pudding instead of egg. FINALLY, I got it right today. I got the brown sugar egg pudding milk tea with pearls.
I thought my drink was good, but I think their pearls are hard. I really wanted Purple Kow today too, but PlenTea was closer to Sushiritto. A Purple Kow opened up near my location, but I don’t trust milk tea places that have a soft opening. The drinks always take long or they’re made wrong. I’d rather go to the original location where I know they’ll get my drink right (especially since it’s my favorite milk tea place & has my favorite drink). Bella was telling me that all her friends were raving about PK. Everyone in SJ that hopped on PK since the recent opening…..Y’ALL SLEPT…..REAL HARD. lol. PK been good since 2 years ago. How come no one ever listens to me???????
We also brought back our jars because HELP SAVE THE EARTH BY REDUCING WASTE & I didn’t want to take home new jars again since my mom was complaining that we have too many glasses/cups at home :p

After PlenTea, we headed over to Pineapples. I was our first time there & the wait time was too long. Granted, it was actually really hot in SF today too, but idk if I would want to go there often. It didn’t taste exactly like the one at Disneyland, but it’ll suffice. Plus, I don’t want to complain about it since it’s the closest thing I have until the next time I go back to Disneyland (which I don’t know when that will be).

IT’S LITTTTTTTTT. (our soft serve was melting quick after this photo haha)
My mom brought home cute little desserts for my sister’s birthday today. I don’t have enough money saved up right now to buy my sibling’s nice gifts for their birthdays, but I have a good idea now about what I plan on getting them for Christmas this year ^_^
