This weekend, my roommate and I decided to go to the Westfield San Francisco Centre and the area around Mid-Market to purchase some pants and jackets. It is actually quite cold in San Francisco, averaging at about 60-70 degrees–very brisk for summer weather in my opinion. If you’re going to intern in San Francisco, don’t be bringing shorts and t-shirts. Make sure to bring lots of pants and light jackets, because you’ll definitely be needing them.
Afterwards, we went into Chinatown to find some dim sum and good Chinese food. We went to a place called Good Mong Kok Bakery: you can get three shrimp dumplings for a measly $2.10; I bought 9 pieces of dim sum for around $7 total! Unfortunately, they were all out of vegetarian options–my roommate is vegetarian– so my roommate and I ended up going to a vegetarian restaurant called Lucky Creation. I got a vegetable clay pot and I must say that the food here is delicious! The bubble tea I got has smaller boba and is much better than the kind that I get in St. Louis. St. Louis has great food, but I must admit that the bubble tea is lacking a bit to be honest.
Half of the week has gone by in a flash; I’m looking forward to the weekend and seeing what else there is to do in the city. I’m going to be putting the final touches to my work, and then I’ll be finished with my first project! Super excited to see what else the team will have planned for me.
