A Huntington Beach sunset

With my friend Amy visiting my hometown of Huntington Beach for a couple days, it makes me see the city in a slightly different light. As we were driving along PCH during the sunset yesterday, she remarked, “You are so lucky to have lived in such a beautiful area.” Having lived away from California for … Continue Reading

California girl

My last few days in Orange County were spent shopping, walking around Main Street in Huntington Beach, and catching up with my friends over good food and drinks. Also, a family dinner at Tokyo Table consisting of American-style sushi. I already miss the summer weather despite it being winter, my family, and my friends. But … Continue Reading

Catalina Island

I didn’t realize Catalina Island was such a beautiful place until my family and I visited a few days ago. It was one of my father’s favorite places, and now I can see why. I’ll be back again, Dad.

SoCal, I’m back

My first few days back in Southern California mainly consisted of good food and reuniting with my favorite people – photo shooting in L.A., lunch with my brother, hotpot dinner at Boiling Point with friends, Bruxie’s waffle sandwiches with my best friend of 10 years, shaved ice, boba, and the night view from the 405. … Continue Reading

Bye bye Orange County

Some happier times during my stay in Orange County. Disneyland with my brother and cousins, family dinner at Tortilla Jo’s Downtown Disney, dinner, boba and shopping dates with my amazing friends, and a cozy family dinner with my mom and brother at Black Angus. A lot more people I wanted to see and a lot … Continue Reading

Disneyland style

  I finally made my way to Carsland at California Adventures this weekend and I loved it. My friend and I got there right before the park opened but we still had to wait in line for an hour for the main attraction Radiator Springs Racers. It was worth the wait though. And it was … Continue Reading

I decided to spend part of my last weekend in Orange County in San Diego to visit some friends and explore more of its greatness. Hopefully you can tell by my photos that I had some amazing food… … Continue Reading

Blue waves

  Today was one of those days where I couldn’t resist the urge to soak in the sun and enjoy some beautiful weather. Warm sun, slight breeze, blue ocean, people tanning, children playing. It was nice to be away from the hustle-bustle of my daily routine and be able to have time to myself, minus … Continue Reading

The Golden Gate

    Additional photos from my SF trip! I know I sound like a tourist, but I finally got a picture with the Golden Gate bridge (the pictures from when I was a 5-year-old are a bit outdated). My boyfriend took us to a semi- remote area near the ocean, where you can walk along … Continue Reading

Pride

  I’m so happy to be back in SF, especially since I happened to arrive during Pride where festivities were in full swing. There was so much to do and see near City Hall: food stands, free concerts, street vendors, and artwork like the huge inflated lotus flower above. I also got my first ever … Continue Reading
