{weekend wandering} – sup & brunch with the girls

Last weekend, my girlfriends and I met at Huntington Beach to spend the morning together doing Stand Up Paddle and brunch afterwards. We were celebrating the July & August birthdays (Stef & Agnes) and it has become tradition amongst us girls to do some fun activity then brunch afterwards. We met around 11am along Pacific […]

Dining Al Fresco – SkinnyLicious Menu at Cheesecake Factory

With all the fun summer has to offer, I must admit, that I haven’t spent much time in my kitchen these days. I’ve spent more time dining out than dining in the last few weeks. I love dining al fresco. I love feeling the summer breeze and dining underneath palm trees. I also love that […]

New Salad Flavors – BJ’s Restaurant

My friend Lizelle was in town recently and we got to hangout and meet-up for dinner with the rest of our circle of friends. Even if we haven’t each other for awhile, we always just seem to pick-up where we left off….I haven’t seen her since my bridal shower last year. I’m really grateful for […]

My Big Girl

Guess who is officially turning a big girl? My niece Jazzy. Today was her last week of Pre-K and we had a celebration with the whole family. Next  school year, she will be in Kindergarten and it just made me think about it today, she will no longer be a baby 😦 She is 4 […]

Life Lately & Roy’s Restaurant

I recently started a new role at my job and it has kept me very busy. My new work has made my days go by really fast and sometimes I feel like my days are blurred together.  I have a renewed appreciation when everyone says TGIF!! I spend  my weekends hanging out with my family. […]

What I Ate – Fresh Lobster

We’ve had beautiful weather around here. I am enjoying it while it lasts. Heard there’s a storm coming soon. Admiring the  last of the ripe oranges. They are sour though 😦 And enjoying the last of the beautiful plumerias. It might be the last bloom until next season. My mother-in-law gave us a few plumeria […]

Pumpkin Oatmeal Chocolate Muffins

After the rain we had this week, the sun finally came out in time for the weekend. We wanted to soak up the rays before the next rain comes our way. We spent the early part of the evening in Anaheim’s Garden Walk. It’s a few blocks from Disneyland and not too far way from […]

{Japanese Style} Curry House

Cu-cu-curry House we went. Curry House is a Japanese-style Curry and Spaghetti Restaurant. They are known for their great tasting curries and huge serving entrees. I’ve never seen so many variety of curries. You can choose between beef, vegetable, chicken and seafood curries. We haven’t been to this restaurant for a long time (more than […]

Purple Cakes and Graduation

It’s a proud day for my family. My younger sister is now a licensed Dental Hygienist. I walked in the door to her graduation festivities and was greeted with colorful cupcakes. Free desserts at a graduation? Her school is great. I think that it is ironic they offer sweet offerings during a dental event. I ate […]
