Is it odd to say that I’ve been looking forward to this weekend because I had absolutely nothing planned? I spent Friday night staying in with a bowl of homemade garlic shrimp vermicelli noodles and a little bit of Netflix. I had a CPR recertification class Saturday morning. And then maybe a walk through Golden Gate Park today, but nothing too eventful. Just a low key weekend. Continue reading →

Last weekend my sisters, cousin, and I went to the Backstreet Boys concert and absolutely loved their performance, a mix of old jams and new songs from their latest album. But before we went to the concert, we decided that we wanted to go for an early dinner. We opted for an all you can eat Korean BBQ and hot pot place. Seriously, we might have a new obsession. Lol

I’m so excited to discover that a new mochi donut shop called Mochill just opened in Japantown. We received a box of mochi donuts as a gift. There were so many different flavors that you can choose from: chocolate oreos, chococolate, strawberry, cinnamon sugar, fruity pebbles, and matcha. I love that each one is light and airy, and so delicious.

Happy Wednesday!

I spent the weekend eating my way through the night market in Pleasanton. Over a hundred food trucks and food vendors were there selling some of their most popular items. As much as I love food, I felt like I didn’t have much of an appetite in the nearly 100 degrees heat. All I wanted was something cold to drink or a snow cone. That and a way to hide from the sun.
