Finally we are here at Pier 39, the major draw with millions of visitors a year. What makes Pier 39 an exhilarating place to visit? Tourists came here not only to admire the beautiful bay views, but for 600 stinky fellows. Yup, you hear me right!
Those stinky fellows, sea lions I mean, were arguing for the best spot to sunbathe.
They barked a lot and they smell funny too.
Pier 39 is a tourist complex as well.
I'm a big fans of Forest Gump. But the restaurant was renovating. ARGHHH...I want shrimps from Bubba Gump!
Sigh, never mind. Grab some souvenirs.
One of the best thing in San Francisco is FRESH fruits directly from farmer market!
Blame the wind, ignore my hair! Look at those FRESH cherries! I bought a bag :)
Hold on, I got to pick up a call.

Well, Jason and Marshall wanted to meet us for dinner! They are going to make us an authentic Jamaican foods called Jerk Chicken. Stop making fun of it! You'll blow away by Jason and Marsha cooking skills if you ever get a chance to bite on it! For your extra information, they are from Jamaica (obviously)!
Culture exchange. I bought them custard tarts. And they loving it!
The appetizer, Jamaican crackers with Solomon Gundy. The crackers are utterly delicious together with the smoke herring paste! It was my first time eating Jamaican foods and I'm in love with it. As a result, I finished up all the crackers.
Jerk Chicken for smart people. Through this photo, I guess you can see those spices and herbs mix well with the chicken. The meat absorbed all the flavors and that made it tasted extremely flavorful! Not an exaggeration, serious talk here.
Cheers to our chef, Jason.
And his cute assistant ever, Marsha.
Thank you for the wonderful dinner, friends! I'll practice hard and drink more wine in Portland. My ultimate goal is to finish your Cabernet Merlot next time! Hehehe...
Dream on buddies!
