Last week was Thanksgiving break, and since I had a whole week off my aunt took me out to a treat at Eggette’s COM in South San Francisco. Eggette’s COM is a café that sells boba drinks and their popular snack, eggette’s.
Eggettes are Hong-Kong style mini pancakes that come in a bite-sized form. They have a fluffy interior and a crunchy exterior available in vanilla and chocolate flavors. This was the first time I had ever eaten eggettes, let alone learning what they are, so as I waited for my order I anticipated trying out a new delicacy. As I popped the first eggette in my mouth, I recognized a particular flavor that tasted all too familiar. The best way to describe the flavor of eggettes is to compare it to a warm, soft fortune cookie.

Recently, my grandparents from Oregon came to town to visit. My mom wanted to treat them to a nice dinner, so she chose to take us to Maggiano's Little Italy at Santana Row in San Jose. Usually, it is hard to find parking since Santana Row is a popular area to be around. Luckily, we were able to have free valet parking, so we had good parking that wasn't too far away from the restaurant.

Mary Modjeska Monteith Simkins
(born 5 December 1899 in Columbia, South Carolina - 5 April 1992) was a civil rights leader.
Modjeska Monteith Simkins was an important leader of African American public health reform, social reform and the civil rights movement in South Carolina. Born in Columbia, Simkins attended elementary school, high school, and Benedict College and received a bachelor of arts degree in 1921. The same year, she began teaching at Booker T. Washington High School. Because public schools in Columbia did not allow married women to teach, she was asked to resign when she married Andrew Simkins in 1929.
