明媚阳光下写到哪儿算哪儿

1.有风景的房间
我们厨房窗户有公寓里最好的风景.向南看到”好风景”小山头,向东看到海湾和东湾的山. Paris 是我们家公认的断背猫,所以有断背人一样的好品味.早上喜欢坐在这个桌子上看风景闻咖啡香(咖啡壶就在桌角).

因为这扇窗,早上的厨房是我们家最温暖的房间. 周末早上我喜欢在这里一边吃早饭一边上网或者看书. 想其实自己要的也不算多,这么一扇窗的风景和阳光就很够用了.可是为什么这两月来四处看房子总是不尽人意呢?
说到底是不是夸大了自己想要的?是不是太贪婪了呢?

2.泰庙美食
桂在 Yelp 上面发现一个吃泰国饭的地方.在伯克利,每周日早上,一个泰庙里卖正宗泰国饭. Yelp 上面好评如潮.
我们上周跑去.停好车往庙的方向走,老远就闻到饭香. ZM 皱皱鼻子,立刻首肯:嗯!这地方不错.
进了庙的后院,发现居然跟在曼谷街边小食市场十分类似. 大家排长队买饭,然后在简易折叠桌椅边坐下大吃.
鉴定结果是面最好吃(几乎没人排队!)咖喱茄子也不错,木瓜沙拉和各式甜点都非常好吃. 有一种叫 kanom krog
的小食,用椰奶,面粉和糖做的小圆饼,两面煎到略焦,里面撒了一点小葱.以前从没见过,非常好吃. Pad Thai 不好吃. :(

和同事讲起来,她说南湾 Fremont 也有这么一个庙,也是周日卖饭.两家庙都是把收入全部捐给庙里是义捐的一种. 不知道两家相比哪家更好?

3. 古董集市
在网上看到 Alameda 每月第一个周日有古董市场.上周日从泰庙出来就弯过去看看. 大概是世界上风景最好的古董市场了吧?在 岛的南端,270度的海湾环绕,豪华的旧金山市中心剪影,旁边是繁忙的奥克兰港口,狭窄的海道里还挤满了进进出出的帆船.秀色可餐.占地面积也很大,东西不错.甚至比纽约 Chelsea 的古董市场还好. 摊主们摆放的也很有特色.当然价格也算不上便宜.毕竟来这里购物的有不少吃室内装修这碗职业饭的.早上六点就开门,来的越早门票越贵($15-$5)

古董市场很上镜.当然这里的古董没法和中国的古老相比.下次回北京一定要去潘家园.

    Missing Berkeley, deeply. Have fond memory of the two years we spent there. Have you been to Berkeley Bowl lately? And the cheese place at the Rockridge Town Center, and the wine shop Kermit Lynch, Paul Marcus, etc.. And the many, many interesting artisan bakeries, and coffee roasters, and bookstores, and independent theaters, and ……

    Jean’s Reply:
    Berkeley was never mine, even though I went there for college. It was more my sister’s town since she spent both her undergrad and grad school years there. Later i got to see a glimpse of the place from time to time through her eyes, it seemed to be the same town that you are now missing. I loved it too, minus its insane parking regulations. If i ever had the chance to work in downtown SF (instead of the dreary suburbia of the silicon valley), then I’d seriously consider moving to Berkeley, some day.

  2. “If i ever had the chance to work in downtown SF (instead of the dreary suburbia of the silicon valley),……”

    Who knows? The new city planning and inevitable modification of zoning regulations in SF might just make it more friendly to IT businesses, and offer more viable residence to professionals with income
