Filoli | Cooking with a Wallflower

My friend Jen and I went to Filoli last Friday for a girls’ day out. I am so obsessed with architecture so I loved walking through the huge Georgian era mansion and admiring absolutely everything. And if you love gardens, Filoli has acres of gardens with so many flowers and plants.

Earlier this week, we stopped in Treasure Island to watch the sunset. Have you ever been to Treasure Island? It’s just outside of the city, and it has the perfect view of the San Francisco skyline. We’ve been lucky lately with the weather. Slightly warmer days with clear skies. So it’s the perfect time to catch the sunset. Can you spot the Golden Gate Bridge in the background?

“The story continues on stage.”

Harry Potter

My sister and I bought tickets to see Harry Potter and the Cursed Child. The storyline takes place 20 years in the future with Harry Potter all grown up, married with kids. Since the play is long, it was split into two parts on two consecutive nights. I’m not sure what I was expecting, but it was just sooo good. The storyline and the special effects were so amaaazing. It was worth the price of the tickets and I would highly recommend watching it if you can.

Have I mentioned that I have an obsession with kaya buns, right now? I probably already have.

Kaya Buns

There’s a bakery called Breadbelly in San Francisco that makes pastries that are inspired by Asian flavors. My favorite by far is their kaya buns. It’s similar to the pineapple bun. Soft bread filled with a pandan coconut cream and topped with a pandan coconut crumble. It’s the perfect balance of flavor and so addictive. If you’re in SF, you need to get yourself to this small bakery and get their kaya bun and their kaya toast. Sooooo good.
