Afterward, we had a long walk to a bakery to pick up Dim Sum then to Willie “Woo Woo” Wong Playground to eat (the Dim Sum and lunch) and to play.

Next, we walked to Gordon J. Lau Elementary School to tutor first graders in Cantonese.

In a first grade classroom at Gordon J. Lau Elementary School, he holds an art project. The first grader whom he tutored Chinese stands just off to the left. He wasn’t too keen on her because she didn’t really talk, January 26, 2017, 1:59 p.m.

Then, photos and a long walk to Market Street. Inside Powell Street Station, we munched on fortune cookies (purchased in Ross Alley between Dim Sum and the playground) before boarding the N-Judah back to school.

Afterward, I rewarded the boys with a Jamba Juice. Next, Mommy picked us up, took us home, and we played, had dinner, and played more until the friend’s mom picked him up, January 26, 2016, 4:22 p.m.

It was a busy and tiring day!

The next day was Friday, but we had the day off of school for the Lunar New Year. We had a friend over for a brief playdate in the morning and then we went to have fun at Yeah-Yeah and Ngen-Ngen’s house at lunchtime.

On Saturday, had more play time and then we met Grandma and Granddad for dinner in Gilroy to celebrate Mommy’s birthday a bit early.
