Venice Beach

hdr

Hi people, hope everybody’s having a great weekend! Life’s been meh recently, but I’m trying to stay positive and learning to look at things differently (or so I keep telling myself to).

Anyways, I just wanted to share more photos of LA from when we went to Venice Beach because they’re all about beaches and we just had to check it out. We basically just roamed around it for an hour or two because we had a full day ahead of us which I’ll share in my next post. I’m not sure what it is about this city, but it’s just so chill that all I wanted to do while we were there was lie on the sand underneath a palm tree. I kind of wish life was just that chill, but I guess it doesn’t work that way. So I’ll end this post here before I start ranting about unnecessary things again. Enjoy the photos and see you in my next post! Have a great week ahead!

Grand Central Market @ DTLA

IMG_20191009_123319Grand Central Market was on our agenda for the next day just because we’ve heard some very good things about the food there. It was another food haven that reminded us of Food Hallen. They had various food stalls that sold both Western & Asian cuisines.

Their tacos are to die for (the chicharrones taco to be specific) and you’ll see that from my photos below because that’s all we basically ate. We got to try this burger from Eggslut as well because we’ve heard many good things about it and despite being full from all the tacos we had, I’d say that was a good burger. If you ever find yourself in town, go to Grand Central Market because it’s lit! Continue reading “Grand Central Market @ DTLA”

Fun at the State Fair

Greetings from the other side. It’s been a month since I arrived and to be honest it’s been refreshing to be with family, friends and Carlos and not have to think about work for a while. Anyways, like I said it’s been a lot of fun being in Little Rock again, especially since Carlos has been able to come here and my brother took us to the State Fair. The fair had already ended a few days ago, so we’re lucky to have gone!

Thank you, next!

Hi everyone! It’s been a while since I last blogged again. And that’s only because I’ve been busy juggling work and life. Life has been great for the most part, but I’ve had to make tough decisions recently and let’s just say there’s no turning back.  It’s been an emotional roller coaster ride, but I know that there are better things to look forward to and as Ariana had put it before: Thank you, next!

A little weekend breather 1/2

qrfIt’s been a while since Carlos and I had gone on vacation due to the fact that we both have limited days off.  It’s insane how people who work are entitled to only a few days compared to when we were students.  Then again, life just doesn’t work the way we want it to.  Having said that, we still try to make the most of it so when Carlos said that he’d be off last weekend, we decided to go to our neighboring city which is none other than Hong Kong for some much needed R&R.

A Cha Bei Experience

qrfCha Bei – a fancy restaurant located at Galaxy Macau.  It’s been on my list of food places to try for as long as I can remember, but have always felt intimidated by how it looks from the outside because I can be pretty judgmental and well, biased.  I’ve been to a lot of places where the quality of food is over compensated by the set up and atmosphere to the extent that it’s only instagrammable/picture worthy.  Anyways, this is just my opinion, so moving on to Cha Bei, finally plucked up the courage to eat at this fancy looking place with my bestie, Tiffany.  We went there in the afternoon and because we’d just had lunch two hours earlier, we decided to order their tea set which consisted of two beverages of your choice (tea & coffee), tiny savory sandwiches, madeleines, assorted cakes and macarons.
