Alice in Wonderland

April 30, 2011

in movies, snacks, travel

Had a little afternoon tea with my dear old friend Alice

7 years ago; she's the Asian to the right of me


…who holds a special place in my heart, as the director of my very first feature film, Saving Face

We met at Leland Tea Company

Such a cute spot!

I ordered a small Ginger Rogers

Alice didn’t know sizes were an option; her’s was the bigger one

I look so weird from this angle – like I’m at the Mad Hatter’s Tea Party!

Dinner plans with another director friend got cancelled last-minute due to baby duties, so I just snacked in my hotel room.

This was my first time eating an Arkansas Black apple and it was delightful. Snow White beautiful, too.

A Nugo Mint Chocolate Chip bar – also delicious

Spent my night watching the Royal Wedding recaps, catching up on blog stuff, watching movies instantly on Netflix, and studying lines for today’s scenes (we’re filming at the farmer’s market!!!)

It was actually a really lovely, mellow evening and I’m grateful I wound up with some much-needed “me time” before getting back to work!

Saving Face,the movie that launched a thousand ship(followers). Im one of them and your blog is cool. It has educated me about food,some of them I’ve never known about and places you’ve been. Eating healthy and knowing how you balance the food you eat. Can’t wait to see your next film.

It’s so great to get the chance to catch up with old friends. I’ve heard you talk about Saving Face before but didn’t know much about the film. What a great idea to use the trailer. It looks great, I’ll have to see if I can rent it. Thanks. I love San Fran. Wish I had visited with my husband rather thant the person I was there with…sigh…guess we’ll have to plan a road trip.

Farmers’ market – the Ferry Building one or the Alemany one? :) I do love Leland Tea Company. Such a cute spot with reasonably priced tea service.

Nice! It’s my favorite and the closest to my place. Need extras? ;-) random fact – it is the oldest farmers’ market in the state.

Oh, watching the “Saving Face” trailer just made me teary. It’s so heartwarming. Alice is amazing. You are too! I’m so glad you connected with her.

My hubby and I do a lot of ‘hotel picnics’… So relaxing though. No pomp&circumstance. Just simple eats at ‘home’. Glad you had some ‘me’ time.
