[ ♡ ] LA Trip (2) 2011

Sorry for the long absence (again lol) but I’ve been away on vacation again. I actually took a second trip to LA, this time with my cousins. My aunt and my uncle invited us to visit so we decided to do a girls trip. I’m glad I went again because we did a bunch of new and different things this time. Here are some highlights!

On our first day we did our nails and ate some yummy sushi at a place called Cho Cho Sans! We were seated in this cute little sunroom. Here I am before heading out:

Here I am at the salon with my chosen toe nail polish

For my nails I decided to do gel nails.

Here are some shots of lunch at Cho Cho Sans.

The following day we did a bunch of things. First we went to the getty museum to explore the gardens and galleries.

Then we had lunch at Urth café. Here’s a shot of my cousin’s drink:

We also went to the pier, here’s a cute shot from behind:

After the pier we went to an old timey movie theater and watched “Moon over Miami.”

The following day we went to Santee Alley in the morning then we went to Grifith park and caught a theater in the park performance.

After that we had a late night dinner at Oinkster:

The next day we spent boogie boarding at a hidden beach north of Malibu. It was the hardest climb down and up the clif.

After that day we did all sorts of stuff. We went horseback riding around the Hollywood hills.

We had yummy yogurt and cupcakes:

We went the Hollywood blvd:

And we hiked around some nice botanical gardens:

It was sad leaving but I was ready to come home and clean up my room and organize my stuff! I’m definitely looking forward to going back to LA again!

[ ♡ ] LA Part II – Koko puff & sushi

Here are pictures from the 2nd half of my trip. My sister took my camera charger back home with her first so these are all from my phone. We mostly did a lot of eating and hanging out with my koko!

First here’s a phone picture from part I of LA that I forgot to put up. It’s my sister having a staring contest with a manikin lol!

Some of me and koko!

And finally some of our sushi lunch in a skyway. It’s really cool. It’s a sushi buffet / bar right in the skyway.

The cooks make the sushi right in front of you over the bar.

I learned that there was a green soy sauce. I never knew there was a low sodium one! This one tastes much better, less salty.

And finally some green tea icecream!

I seriously spent the entire weekend eating, mostly wings. It’s given me a renew love for wings. Ever since I’ve been back, I’ve been crazy wings from little neighborhood whole in the wall type restaurants.

[ ♡ ] Lists – Places to Visit

These are places that are top on my to visit list!

Venice, Italy – I have always wanted to go to Venice and travel by boat. There’s an old world romanticism about city on water that just calls to me. I once a long time ago even imagined living there for a few years but traveling by boat all the time would probably start to irritate me.
Rome, Italy – I can just imagine riding by the ruins on a vespa with a cute boy eating gelato!
Tokyo, Japan – I want to join the crowded streets and go through back alleys to find the shopping gems
Santorini, Greece – anyone who has watched a movie has seen this beautiful place complete with blue roofs and even bluer seas! I re-fell in love with it again when I watched sisterhood of the traveling pants.
