Cousin’s graduation

Went straight to my relative’s place after work on Friday since I knew I’d need to get up early today.  Lots of extra people.  Apparently Henry brought along his friend from USF (who I’d met once) along with her sister.  Sun was red that evening and the sky was also a weird red/orange color, probably from the fires in Santa Cruz.  Angel took us on a quick tour of her high school and let us know where to meet her tomorrow after the ceremony.

When we got there, the sky was still nice and cloudy/foggy/smoky so we were hoping it wouldn’t be too hot.  Unfortunately that didn’t last.  Fortunately the ceremony was an hour shorter than expected.  This, people, is why we all love short speeches.  :P

Lots and lots of picture taking through and after the ceremony.  Since we were so early, we went home and moved up the reservation time at Romano’s Macaroni Grill.  Food was pretty standard.  Bread was above average (because it was HOT).  We then went to Best Buy and I waited for Xia to come over.

Went to Costco first with Xia since she wanted to buy some stuff, then we had dinner at Ginseng at Mountain View.  It was… odd.  It’s Korean BBQ completely run by non-Asians.  That means the restaurant looked rather clean.  But it also meant the portions were kinda skimpy/price was kinda high.  And amazingly, the service was actually rather blah.  It was also *extremely* weird how there was no sauce at all, which meant the non-marinated meat was pure meat flavor.  I wouldn’t recommend it.  I’d rather got to some place like Coriya Hot Pot, which would’ve been cheaper and all-you-can-eat, plus you can also have hotpot and mix your own sauce.  :P

We then went over to Shoreline Park and Lake to watch the sunset.  Saw a skunk too!  But darn thing wouldn’t let me get close enough to get a good picture.  Makes me really want to get a telephoto lens.  :P
