Montara Mountain Trail, San Mateo

Website: Address: Montara Mountain Trail, San Mateo, California 94044 All trails: The signs says it's 2.5 to the summit one-way and it is definitely not accurate. I think all trails is more accurate that round trip to the summit is around 6.4 miles.  This was a moderate hike which takes 3-4 hours depending on the speed and definitely quite high up.  The weather can change once you get near the summit.  Unfortunately, when we were there the summit was closed so we did quite close to it. There are a few trails like Trout Farm Trail, Weiler Farm Ranch, etc.  But this is the most popular one.  I wouldn't recommend the Weiler Farm Ranch, it was flat and it was really nothing much to see, the end was just a loop to go around and you walk back the same trail, really boring trail. You have to pay 6 dollars per vehicle to get in as it is part of San Mateo

MakeSpace Storage Space (San Francisco and Bay Area)

Business Address: Why I chose this: They basically pick-up and delivery the stuff for you, so you DO NOT NEED to drive yourself to the storage or pick it up again to be sent to your place. Overall Experience Feedback: March 7, 2021 Feedback: 1 out of 5 If I can score this negative, I would.  The whole pick up experience was pretty bad and here are the things that happened. We can't ask them to deliver to Sta Clara since that is not covered so we have to schedule a pick-up Getting back to us for pick up times was really slow and took more than 3 days and thus, we end up extending our storage support instead of getting it pick up earlier. They sent us the pick up times and schedule, told us 8-11 am. My friend go there at 8.05 and no-one was there Called makespace, and they have to call the person assigned there The guy in the warehouse said, I should have called him and I said I don't have his contact, and WHILE I was talking to him, I receive

Breakfast Little (Mission)

Address: 3224 1/2 22nd St, San Francisco, CA 94110 Rating: 3.5 out of 5 7/16/20 I saw this while walking around Mission and asked someone in line who raved about this and was raving about how good especially their "You can name it" burrito which I heard has a name now.  The other person was also suggesting to try Viejito Cafe which is basically coffee with Mexican Caramel. I tried Kingkong toast + Viejito.  The coffee was good, it was not too sweet despite the caramel.  The Kingkong toast was with almond butter, chocolate, and banana.  It was just a toast but nothing amazing or fancy.  The toast itself was a bit "hard" for me, it was not sourdough bread nor is it the same big toast that they used in the Mill, but definitely some artisan bread.  It was also expensive around 7 dollars for a toast which is a thin/small slice (I actually got fortunate since they gave me two instead because I waited long).

Might have dried out so definitely won't order this again. Xiao Long Bao Pork Banh Mi
