SF Renaissance Festival


Aug 17
San Francisco: Golden Gate Renaissance Festival at Speedway Meadow.

It was my first time to go to a Renaissance festival and it was all so exciting! The costumes worn were so colorful. More photos posted at my Flickr site.





The joust.

San Francisco 49ers Vs. Green Bay Packers


August 16

Finally something to cheer about! San Francisco 49ers was in top form during their pre-season game vs. Green Bay Packers! Woohooo!

We've been watching their games at Candlestick Park last year and always went home disappointed. Well, not tonight! The 49ers showed us what they could do as we cheered our heads off.

The Packers scored 3 points during the first quarter but the 49ers got back with vengeance by scoring two touchdowns in the second quarter! YEAH! From then on, 49ers maintained great plays and was 18 points ahead by the third quarter.


Rrrooowwwwrrrr!


Packers fan with cheese head.



Putting our game face on. Go 49ers! Woooo! Yeah!


To add to the whole excitement, it was announced that Michael Phelps won his 8th gold medal in the Beijing Olympics! Unbelievable! Everybody started chanting U.S.A, U.S.A. It was a supremely exciting moment.





A full moon over Candlestick Park. Magical!



We decided to go home when the 4rth quarter started because we're already sure that 49ers would win. When we got home, we saw the replay of the swimming relay where Phelps won his 8th gold medal. Pangga and I were still so jazzed watching it!

Then Pangga checked the final result of 49ers vs. Packers and happily discovered that 49ers won 34 - 6! They got a punt return for a touchdown with 13 seconds left on the fourth quarter!!! SUPER AWESOME! Hopefully, they will keep playing like this during the regular season. (fingers crossed) What an amazing day!
