President’s Day

I heard somebody say it in a TV show that the pass weekend was a Valentine’s Weekend, I was on Clement St this Monday evening, it’s quite lively outside the restaurants, a lot of people gathering and waiting for tables. It seems everybody was in good mood for romantic dinner. “Burma Super Star” is one of the restaurants with a long line outside. I think the food there must be really good.

Super Tuesday


The tradition of Election Day is hold on Tuesday in US. This time was a presidential primary, it held in 24 states, that why it’s call Super Tuesday. I went to the polling place took a look, It’s very quiet, not like Hong Kong, there were some supporters wait outside and made lots of noise. I think American voters are more mature about election.
