i love you san francisco

san francisco, august 2009

Going to San Francisco soon. Can't wait to devour Ike's Place sandwiches, pizza from Blondies, fries with jalapeno ketchup, and macarons! I'm going to try to make it to the Chictopia shopping event (I have my ticket!) but it looks like I'm going to arrive in the city too late :/

1741 Redondo Beach Boulevard
Gardena, California 90247

My boyfriend and I tried Furaibo for the first time last week and the funny thing is that we ate Furaibo TWICE that day. The best time to go is during lunch (11:30AM-2:00PM in Gardena) since it's about $7.00 for 13 (12?) wings, rice, and salad. I was addicted to their Creamy House Dressing salad. The chicken wings were good too. When we went during lunch, the price for a Bento Box (with half the amount of wings we had for lunch, a pork cutlet, salad, and rice) was about $13 so we established that lunch is the best time to go.

There is only I believe 3 Furaibo's in the United States. They have over 70 locations in Japan. In the last year, my boyfriend and I have been eating a lot of Japanese food. It makes me want to go to Tokyo sooo bad! Which reminds me, I need to brush up on my Japanese! The first photo is the plate we go during lunch. The following photos are side orders we got during dinner.

h&m blouse and skirt, old navy belt, and target shoes

The last couple days have been hectic. From waking up in Arizona to shopping in Vegas to a long and frightening drive home through gusty winds on the 15, all I want to do is spend the whole day on my couch doing nothing. I guess you can say spring break has been treating me good :)

With all that aside, I am in love with this skirt. As soon as I saw it, I had to get it. At first, I was contemplating on getting it because of the color. It’s more of a coral-ish red color than orange. But I could not pass it up, the shape is amazin


Like I mentioned in my previous post, I'm not a big fan of Vegas. I'd choose San Francisco any day over Vegas. I don't know, ever since I first went to SF when I was 13, I've always been in love with SF. My aunt continuously tells my boyfriend how I've always loved SF. In high school, I've always dreamed about going up north for college. Times have changed, and I'm still here in LA but I'm not complaining. Anyway, I totally went off topic, but after a somewhat boring trip to Arizona, we decided to take a detour to Vegas. Obviously taking a detour to SF isn't an option (while driving a very long 8 hour drive, I was half regretting going to the Grand Canyon over SF, but I figured since I've never been to the Grand Canyon, why not?). Okay enough about SF.

Anyway, the drive to Vegas from Flagstaff took only 4 hours. While driving there, we drove through the Hoover Dam and for some reason I got all excited. I never knew how close the Hoover Dam was to Vegas. After a little less than an hour, we arrived in Vegas and walked around. Since this trip was a last minute trip, we just ate at the Grand Lux Cafe in the Venetian. Oh! One of my best friends went to Vegas last weekend and told me about a drink at the Coca Cola store. For $7.00, you can try 16 different drinks from Coca Cola from around the world. It was definitely the highlight of the entire trip. My favorites would have to be drinks from Spain and Japan! The one drink my friend mentioned to me was the one drink that caught me off guard. It's called the Beverly from Italy. It tasted like rubbing alcohol or even worse. Overall, the entire trip was fun. Who knew that I would be in three states in one day! Doesn't happen all the time!
