Kalayaan SF celebrates Philippine Independence every June. This event was held in downtown San Francisco’s shopping district at Union Square. This is a very busy spot on all levels (parking, people and traffic).
I had some spare time, so I decided to go check it out and was impressed. I love culture in general and to see Filipino culture displayed proudly, is inspiring. I saw good artwork, clothing, food and talent.
I would check out local museums when they had “free admission”. Many museums double as a “night club” in the evenings.
I was glad to see that de Young was gonna do this with the event of a drag queen runway show. LOL.
I didn’t even know until I arrived. I tried to get some free soda.
After a few minutes, I went straight to the exhibitions as I had a couple hours to do so. I couldn’t go into the special or exclusive exhibits, but I did check out the regular collections and I definitely enjoyed it.
For Lucas’ birthday, we went to Disneyland. It is the first time my in laws have been in the original Disneyland (they have been to the one in Paris!).
We did some rides and stayed til 11pm.
Surprised that Lucas wanted to go on the Big Thunder mountain roller coaster! I told him if he got scared, just scream. While there was not sudden drops, it was fast and throw you sideways. My lil guy handled it pretty good!
My sister-in-law told us about Burnaby mountain. It was a nice sunny day and it would have be perfect for a nice relaxing spot.
When we got there, I couldn’t believe my eyes. The wooden structures were huge and gorgeous.
When we were driving, I saw some people climbing the log, so when went there, I immediately walked on it (on the other side there was a sign saying No climbing, I was unaware). As I was reaching the half it got windy enough that I got my pictures and came down.
It was so clear and beautiful that day, you can see downtown Vancouver BC!
