Last winter break I went to California.. Heheh, it took me some times to write about it as there were a lot of things came up in the last few months. The real reason for this California trip was to attend an event held by MISG (Malaysian Islamic Study Group) in Oakland, San Francisco. Tapi, dah alang-alang menyeluk pekasam biarlah sampai ke pangkal lengan, ye dok?
So, I took a flight from Chicago along with Ain, my housemate. We had to walk in such a cold weather (it was winter) from Greyhound bus station to Union Station so that we could buy a ticket to Chicago O’hare Airport. It was so cold I swear.
After a few hours of flight, we finally arrived in San Francisco International Airport. Phew! The weather there was so warm and cozy – not too hot neither too cold – JUST FINE! We arrived waaaaay early in the morning (I think it was past midninght), so we had to wait until like 7.30 am to take Bart train line (lebih kurang macam LRT) to Oakland.
So, the next morning—
Since the event started in the evening, we went for a ‘walk’ around San Fran. We went to Civic Center, 16th St. Mission, and Powell St. Too bad I didn’t took so many pictures as I DIDN’T BRING ANY CAMERA! We just used iPhone camera and I was so unsatisfied I will never travel without camera ANYMORE.
And below is the view of Oakland City from our hotel’s window.
The event was very educating and informative tetapi we skipped a day as we went touring around San Fran hehehehe.

I’ll talk about it in the next post.
