hawaii, may 2010

Sun is shining. Palms are swaying. Water is clear. People watching. Floating on a frosted pink tube. ABC Stores. Hawaiian Sun drinks. Cute dogs. Waterproof cameras. Bumming it. Bits and pieces of Hawaii. Broke but definitely happy. Enjoy!

can life slow down just a little bit

my backyard, november 2007

Summer has officially started last week and life still is crazy hectic. This week especially with all the graduations, work, and packing that I have to do, it’s definitely giving me a headache. With all that aside, I know I know, I’ve been the worst blogger on the face of this planet, but I promise an insane amount of blog posts next week! Trust me, it’s going to be a good one. So, I’ll see ya cats later. I’m hitting the sacks to have some fun in LA, shopping at Wasteland, and chasing down the Kogi Truck with one of my best friends tomorrow.

chasing dreams

new york city, february 2010

longing for the day i wake up in the morning, grab a drink at starbucks, manage my own boutique, walk baby curry at central park, go out for dinner with charles, and fall asleep in my beautiful loft in new york city


san francisco, august 2009

Going to San Francisco (FINALLY!) in about two weeks! I was supposed to go in April but the day I was going to leave, it was super windy and it super rained up there. I was not willing to drive up there (since I absolutely hate driving home from Vegas when it's windy, I can only imagine driving up there in windy conditions!) Anyway, I'm so excited! We're planning on:
  1. Eating IKE'S! My favorite sandwich shop ever. PERIOD.
  2. Macarons at Paulette's!
  3. Breakfast at Mama's. When I went to San Francisco in 2008, I walked by Mama's and was curious as to why there was a LONG line of people waiting to be seated. Now, I'm going to find out!
  4. Thrift/vintage shopping on Haight.
  5. Chinese food in Chinatown.
  6. Japanese Tea Garden
Before we head up there, we're going down south to San Diego to go to the zoo! So much to look forward to!

The Boiling Crab

The Boiling Crab
13892 Brookhurst St
Garden Grove, CA 92843

I know what you all LA based bloggers must be thinking. How on earth have I not done a post on Boiling Crab? There's so much hype around Boiling Crab, pretty much everyone that I know has eaten there. Problem is, my BF is allergic to seafood. Yes, that's right, my BF and I don't go on sushi dates or Boiling Crab dates or whatever seafood dates there is, we don't do it. I don't mind at all. The well being of my BF is my main concern, so eating seafood is usually not an option for me. Even the smell of seafood gets to him! And even if I were to eat seafood and he kisses me, he would have an allergic reaction! I've gotten used to it, so complaining here. Earlier this month (or was it last week? I forget haha) we decided to take a risk. Well I didn't want him to (for his well being of course), my BF was insisting that he tag along to Boiling Crab with my mom, brother, and two of our friends (I don't blame him, I'd feel left out too). Poor BF, while everyone was devouring a pound of sha-bang shrimp, he was eating fries and chicken wings. Rest assured everyone, my BF was fine! Even if my BF did survive a trip to Boiling Crab, I wouldn't risk it and would probably keep my trips minimal.

By the way, did I mention that I did enjoy the shrimp! I'm not a fan of crabs or lobsters or what not, so I didn't get that (but I do hear you get your money's worth if you choose to buy shrimp which by the way is $8.99/pound which was a lot for me). I'm not much of a seafood gal, but it was tasty! Maybe it was because the seasoning (lemon pepper, garlic butter, and rajun cajun seasoning) was THE dream concoction for a food lover like me! Downside though, I hate peeling my shrimp. So tedious and somehow I got a cut. Oh and too bad I didn't get a get photo of the delicious shrimp. I didn't want my camera to get greasy haha.

Porto's Bakery
315 N Brand Ave
Glendale, CA 91203

If I haven't already said it, but I LOVE Porto's. I am especially in love with their midnight sandwich and oreo cheesecake. Hands down, the oreo cheesecake at Porto's is tastier than the oreo cheesecake at Cheesecake Factory but don't take my word for it. While I devoured the cheesecake and midnight sandwich, the BF had the beef steak (?) sandwich. He wasn't a fan of it and noted that he rather get the midnight sandwich. Like always, I stuff my face with the potato balls. So delicious, right now it's making me wish I can drive all the way to Glendale tomorrow for lunch but I have to be back to study and work on powerpoints. Ugh. On the bright side, school is over next week so trips to Porto's are very likely.

desert oasis

vegas, may 2010

Just got back from Vegas and I'm pooped. Driving to Vegas during rush hour. Venezia Bella Suites. First drinks at First Food & Bar. Long walks down the strip trying to figure out what to eat but only ending up back (after walking for 2 hours in 4 inch heels) at the Venetian for food at Grand Lux Cafe at 3:00 in the morning. Going to bed when the sun comes up. Lunch at Grand Lux Cafe 12 hours later. Sampling 16 different coke (coca cola to be exact haha) from different parts of the world. Taking pictures with the Coca Cola Bear. Finding M&M on Las Vegas Blvd. Devouring a jalapeno pretzel from New York Pretzel Co. while BF and friend devoured hot dogs from Nathans. FAT TUESDAYS. Gambling $25 courtesy of the Venetian Hotel. Knocking out at 10:00 PM and waking up 11 hours later wishing I took a dip in the garden pool. Checking out. Stuff stuff stuff at The Buffet in the Wynn and a long drive back home. Ugh, now I have to get into study mode for finals.

Hoping you all had a wonderful Mother's Day! My brother and I are taking our mother to Bloomingdales and Nordstrom to buy her perfume and a pair of shoes!

Happy 21st birthday Kris!
