About Me & This Guide

I love learning all the ins-and-outs of a place before I get there. I love reading, indulging my curiousity, and using my imagination. I love planning trips. And I wish I can share all of this with you!

My Hometown

I was born and raised in San Francisco. I've worked in Asia and traveled North, South, East, and West. But San Francisco is still the most beautiful city to me, probably because it's my idea of home.

But I always had a dirty, little secret. I didn't know much about my city! I know the places for a good chow and the hangout places. But what is it about this city that gives that historical, jazzy, hippie feeling?

I decided I wanted to get to know my own city!


Once I started, I was hooked. The food, the sights, the raunchy, and people! There's an interesting blend and culture that is simply wonderful!

And then there is Alcatraz.

Perhaps, Alcatraz just attracts people who are geninuinely interested in history and human nature. Because on the tour, I felt a strong, "shared" sense of appreciation for this city and history from other visitors.

(I wonder how many people there are actually local San Franciscans like me! :D)

By the end of the trip, James tells me that he wants to come here again. And I knew I really wanted to share what I've learned and my excitement.

Thus, this site is born!

I love working on this website because I can share my passion. I research and write everything myself. I use Site Built It! for backend web building.

I truly hope I've been able to help you with this site. Please continue to visit and support my site. I hope I inspire you everytime you visit. Thank you!
