Gusto ko sana malaman how's life like sa CA..i mean, syempre, iba pa rin yun nakukuwento ng hubby ko.Gusto ko yun iba naman kwento ng fellow GTalkers...like the climate, employment, neighborhood, food..etc...or mga different events around the area...who knows, we might want to relocate to other county based on these aspects..

Pasali. I'm in SF Bay Area also-- living and operating our biz in San Leandro. We always go to Castro Valley, downtown SFO, San Ramon, Pleasanton, and Berkeley.

I believe Autumn is here already but it still gets hot sometimes.

cha-cha: in our area, it gets really cold lang towards the end of december and that usually lasts until the first few weeks of march. it's different every year na eh. medyo mahirap na i-predict. last year, if i'm not mistaken, mainit pa ng october eh when it was supposed to be chilly na. :P

pasali din mga sisters, bago pa lang kami dito CA, sa may orange county naman kami...mainit nga ngayon dito, papawisan ka, parang pinas nga...'di nga kami nahirapan mag-adjust sa weather dito...friendly ang karamihan ng tao dito, kahit yung mga kapitbahay namin dito sa apt ay friendly din...accdg to my husband (1 yr na kasi sya sa US at galing na sya sa iba't ibang states), ang mahal ng cost of living dito compared sa ibang states na napuntahan nya tsaka mas busy daw dito (matao, maraming sasakyan)...pansin ko, medyo maalikabok nga sa lugar namin, 'di ko lang alam kung ganun din sa iba...

ask ko lang, saan-saan ba maganda mamili dito ng mga branded items bukod pa dun sa Ghirardelli? yung talagang malaki ang discount....thanks in advance :)
