Last Stop To The Golden Gate Bridge


Oh, before going to the Golden Gate Bridge, my friend suggested going to Lombart Street, known as the "Crookedest Street" in the world!  

I have not been there before and I did not know what to expect.  And when my son drove his big vehicle down the street,  I had to close my eyes and tried not to scream.  I couldn't see the road from where I was sitting, it was just like a roller coaster, a narrow road with eight sharp hairpin turns!  And not only that, my son had to go down the steep road two times.... If I had known, I would rather walk down the steps to the bottom of the road with my friend on the first round.  Since she did not sit in the car to experience, we had to go the second time.  *shudder*

After the Lombart experience, we proceeded to the Golden Gate Bridge... actually the bridge is not golden in colour, it is named not for its hue but for its location, as Mr. Google says.  It is built above the Golden Gate Strait, hence the name golden.... Though it looks red, but the actual colour is called "international orange."

There it is....
We had to walk quite a distance from our car to see this bridge...
I think we took the wrong route to park our car...
But then we would not see this scene if we parked the right one....
This is what I meant.... superb scenery on the wrong route....
Good exercise....
A long walk....
One to remember that we are here.... together!


  1. The first time I saw the bridge when I was a student, I was shocked. There's no golden colour anywhere! 😂 😂
    However there's a huge and lovely Golden Gate Park nearby and the breathtaking Marin County across. I could see that you enjoyed yourself.

  2. I did not know about the color of the bridge. I think you know a lot more about it than I do now. That crooked street sounds so scary! I am scared of high hills when driving, I probably would have fainted!

  3. I also took the opportunity to take a photo at this iconic Golden Gate Bridge when I visited many years ago (and went to Fisherman's Wharf after that if I remember correctly). I too wondered then why the bridge was red and not golden...haha! :D

Three Hours City Tour At Ensenada, Mexico

A THREE HOURS CITY TOUR when we embarked in Mexico on the second morning.   My sister booked the three hours city tour in Ensenada, Mexico, a van came to pick us up from the port.  Ensenada is the border of Mexico and it reminds me of Hatyai, a border town too between Malaysia and Thailand.  We were taken to a shopping area where we must haggle for the goods.  LOL.. Yes, something common in my own country... Anyway, we did not buy anything for ourselves... just a wooden handmade truck for my grandson which cost $8usd.   Nothing much to shout about on this three hours excursion, I was so sleepy on the way back to the ship that I dozed off and only awaken when we were driven through the town.  All in all, I just wanted to step onto Mexican soil and I would give this a miss if I were to go on this Mexico cruise again.  LOL... At the open area shopping walking towards the Blowhole... This is La Bufadora Blowhole, an amazing natural marine geyser that is capable of shooting water over 60 fe

Exploring The Sea Cruise Royal Caribbean

CRUISING ALONG.... Once we deposited our bags in our cabins, we had our buffet meal at the Hammerjack restaurant and exactly at 4pm, we heard a loud Horn signal...  ITS TIME TO SAIL ALONG THE PACIFIC OCEAN! And while the ship started to sail, we humans started to walk and explore.... to familarize ourselves inside the ship....  Elevators on each side of the ship....  Making my mark....  On another side....  We walked along to check out our food outlets... This Promenade Cafe  had became our regular joint .... We like to sit there enjoying our hot drinks and desserts... Free flow of food day and night.... Passing through the bars to the casino... The casino will open only when the ship is in international waters...  At one of the jackpot machines... I wonder if they are real?? But they are only $1 bundles... Then we went up to the highest floor.... The swimming deck.... Taken against the sun.... Nice sunset in the evening.... The Happy Trio!

The Good, The Bad But Not Ugly

MISSING AND NOW BACK IN ACTION...  I checked back my last post and it was 8 March last month and today is 19 April, less than two months only.  So what has been happening in my life?  Lots and lots... good news, bad news, sad news... all concerning health and I guess this is our life cycle as we live day by day.   My health is also not that "fantastic" during the past few months, but mine is a small rock compared to giant boulder which my best buddy is undergoing... I guess some of you know what is happening to her from her blog posts.  I was totally devastated when this happened to her, my tears couldn't help falling and my heart goes out to her.  I am ashamed to say that instead of me giving the comfort that she needs, I am the one that have been receiving her strength in times like this.  She might be crushed physically but she is not broken in her spiritual mind and soul.  One word... "Unbreakable!"  She is a shining example..... "What can death do to m
