Lunch at Lauderdale

More good food, more good company. Made my way to Lauderdale once more for an all girls lunch with my mom and my friend Amy. A little disappointing that they don’t serve their eggs benedict on weekdays, but we still enjoyed a delicious lunch over girls talk. I’m glad that my mom is able to … Continue Reading

A day with my mom

I haven’t been able to post anything new for a week with my mom visiting Japan and whatnot. I’m so happy to finally spend time with her here in Japan during her short stay. I asked my friend Lisa from Paint with Stars if she could do a mother-daughter photo shoot for us, so we … Continue Reading

Lauderdale & Andy Warhol

My Sunday afternoon was spent in Roppongi Hills with my good friend Amy. We had a delicious brunch at Lauderdale (their eggs benedict and soufflé are to die for), and went to the Andy Warhol exhibit at Mori Art Museum. We were able to see over 700 pieces of art, including photographs, drawings, and the … Continue Reading

Burgers and breakfast for lunch

From a much-awaited lunch break with my friend Alisa. We ate outside of J.S. Burger in Shibuya, and enjoyed a veggie burger with avocado and a BLT breakfast plate. I love this place because it comes with unlimited soup and salad bar. Healthy and satisfying.

Celebratory birthday dinner at Kimukatsu

  Last night, I celebrated my good friend Yui’s birthday. At her request, we headed to Kimukatsu, a restaurant known for their mille-feauille- style tonkatsu. It was SO good – nice and crispy on the outside, juicy on the inside. Afterwards we had dessert at Takano Fruit Parlor, where we had a mixed fruit waffle … Continue Reading

Q-pot cafe

Yesterday, I had the pleasure of meeting up with my friend in Harajuku. We had just met last month through a mutual friend when we were both visiting California, and we hit it off and decided to see each other when we returned to Japan. She introduced me to two different cafes yesterday, but Q-pot … Continue Reading

Perfect italian – japan restaurant week

This Saturday afternoon, my friend Yui and I dined at Kagurazaka Stagione, a fine Italian restaurant, for Japan Restaurant Week. This is our third year going out for Restaurant Week, so I think this will be a yearly tradition for us. Anyways, we enjoyed a delicious 5-course lunch – antipasto, pizza, pasta, fish and dessert … Continue Reading

From LA to Tokyo

Last night, I had dinner with my friend who is vising Tokyo from LA. We took a few modeling and acting classes together in LA, but I think this is the first time we actually met up outside of classes or work. I hadn’t seen her in over a year, so imagine all the catching … Continue Reading

Partners in crime

I don’t think I’ve really mentioned anything about my music here, so this post may be a bit random. Today, I had a meeting of sorts with my music producer and his friend whom I will be collaborating with on a brand new track. Not too surprisingly, our meeting lasted a couple hours at two … Continue Reading

Brunch at Beacon

Writing this post is making my mouth water all over again. This morning, I had brunch with my good friend Marie at Beacon Urban Chop House, a high-end restaurant in Shibuya. It was the first and best brunch I’ve ever had in Japan. The orange almond muffin and vanilla almond french toast were indescribably delicious. … Continue Reading
