The Henne Group

I'm now working at The Henne Group in San Francisco. The Henne Group is a full service market research company with offices in San Francisco and New York.

Their website is :

Caren Leong, our Project Director in San Francisco is so nice and approachable. She has the innate talent of guiding/ directing someone to do their job correctly without making them uncomfortable. They pamper the research team whenever they can: like reminding us to take vitamin C and distributing it ( so we don't get sick); free access to the cupboard all day; delicious cookies, milk and chocolates especially on a job well done. ( Yum! I try not to overeat, hehehe.)

I like working there and made new friends.

That's Bobby Dinh. His family is from Vietnam and he's fun to work with.

Tilden Regional Park

(please click on photo, to enlarge)

March 9


One of the District's three oldest parks, Tilden has been called the jewel of the system, and its recreational activities have become a happy tradition for generations of East Bay youngsters. From a carousel ride and a picnic to a swim at Lake Anza and a stroll through the Botanic Garden, Tilden has variety to delight everyone. Yet there are plenty of quiet places in Tilden's 2,079 acres to shelter the wildlife and preserve natural beauty. Tilden was named for Charles Lee Tilden, first president of the Park District Board of Directors. The park is reached via Canon Drive, Shasta Road, or South Park Drive, all off Grizzly Peak Boulevard in Berkeley.

Planned to go fishing with Jonnie but we forgot that Daylight saving time started today, so we were running late. Jonnie said it was too late to go fishing, so we didn't go to Fremont.

But, we were set to spend some time with nature, so Pangga gathered our stuff and we went to Tilden Park instead. We hiked to Jewel Lake and then hiked some more through Sylvan Trail. After that, we went to "Little Farm" and met the farm animals. We were getting hungry, so we went to Indian Camp, set camp, rested and grilled our hotdogs. We definitely had a fun day.

Tilden Little Farm

March 9


The Little Farm was built in 1955 and features a variety of farm animals including cows, sheep, goats, rabbits, chickens and pigs. Several heritage breeds are preserved here, including Milking Shorthorn Cattle. Visitors are welcome to bring lettuce or celery (but nothing else) to feed the animals.

Little Farm's New Calf (shorthorn heifer) is named Ginger. She was born July 18 to Bluebell, the daughter of Daisy, the big red cow.

Cute kids petting the rabbits.

This was taken in the comfort room. It was too cute to ignore. hehehe
