#HNY #2016

We had a quiet celebration this year… we actually sat around after dinner for an extra hour just to experience the countdown at the restaurant. I only made reservations to L.A. Prime assuming it wasn’t a prix fixe menu, but it was. And almost $400 later, we went home.

I only wanted to be there because of the view. And their menu is good, their prix fixe was okay. I wasn’t even in the mood to drink. (I realized after my second drink)

Happy 2016 everyone, hope you all partied safely while my old ass went straight to bed when I got home. :P

Thank you @ChefChrisOh @HanjipBBQ @FrenchyFoody

Finally we made it out to Hanjip thanks to OpenTable and we were happy about being pigs!

My friend Chris (from Seoul Sausage) opened a KBBQ joint on the west side with our other friend Stephane Bombet, the restaurateur.

With Tomahawks, watermelon soju balls, bone marrow with corn cheese, steamed egg with uni, this place is a hit.

I definitely suggest the Tomahawk. My favorite.

Also, they have the flavored soju, which is the best of the best!

@InsomniacEvents #HolidayParty

My friend who used to live in LA was visiting from his new home in NY and he invited me to Pasquale’s Holiday Party. He had to go for work and had a plus 1.

I replied, “Who’s Pasquale?” and he texted me the flyer for the party and I saw Insomniac on it. I of course googled it and Pasquale was the founder for Insomniac. COOL!

He dropped his car off at my mom’s and we took an Uber to LA and back. The house party was amazing! He had a snow owl, zebra, penguins, dwarfs as elves and a Santa! He even had porta potties for his guests!

His wife is Holly Madison so I saw her and her little girl Rainbow running around.

It was definitely a night I will always remember. What a party!

#HolidayLunch @TheChurchillLA

We had a white elephant gift exchange within the office people over lunch at Churchill at the Orlando Hotel on 3rd Street.

It was fun and nice to get out of the office to celebrate the holidays.

I got number 7 and stole a bluetooth wireless speaker that came in the Peanuts box. I really only wanted to packaging since I have a Beats Pill. :P

I kept the box when my speaker got stolen and ended up with a beer mug. :(

#HolidayParty #OOTN

My first annual holiday party with my company and the company’s fifth! :)

I love my company so much and I am so blessed to be working for a company that is set to conquer the world one plot at a time! I’ve always been a dedicated employee wherever I was but I never felt more in place than I do here.

To another successful and adventurous year!! Cheers!

@Apartment503 #SoftOpening

We started at #KBBQ then headed to the soft opening of Apartment 503.

Cute Concept, horrible execution.

I was most proud that I didn’t have a drink at the bar. I set a limit to my drinking and I succeeded. My gf Jo on the other hand, well, let’s just say she had major regrets the next day. Actually, I don’t even know if she has regrets when she’s super hungover. LOL :P

The place was different and had great lighting for photos. Music was on point but the crowd was dirty and the bar staff was obsolete. You know what that means, horrible service and pretentious bartenders. I believe they’re having an identity crisis, they’re not sure if they are a club or a lounge.

1. Not enough seating for it to be a lounge/bar.
2. Not enough bartenders for it to be a club.
3. Layout is horrible.
4. Random furniture in hallways that block traffic and bottleneck people.
5. They don’t carry bottled water (that night at least).
6. One bathroom for male and female. Not cool.

Thank god I used the toiled when I got there and I didn’t drink so I didn’t have to use it again. I heard it was stinky and dirty as fuck.

As for my outfit, I looked fucking fabulous. I really love my camo skirt.

I Love New York Too Much

Something about being away from Los Angeles makes me enjoy my weekend much more. Being home feels like home and I get lazy. Being away makes me feel more productive.

The photos are all over the place but that’s the jist of our trip.

We had brunch on Saturday, then napped. Kaskade at night and went to sleep.

We had Shake Shack when we woke up, then caviar at the Plaza Food Hall, then Quality Meats for some maritinis, St. Regis hotel for more drinks, and ended up at Sapphire. :P

Yes, the strip club. It was a club night, so people were clubbing, but just at a strip club. I ran into my colleague and his gf, which was super cool. We hung out all night and rolled onto the air mattress around 4:30am.

@ScionRacing #DTLA #SEMA

Last year we attended the pre-SEMA Scion event and it was only proper to attend it again this year. Also, I can’t seem to stay away from open bar situations.

The night ended up a mess and I drank a bit too much. Maybe open bars are not such a great idea.

Either way, the event was fun, as always, way more guys and girls. Always good to see faces I don’t get to see often unless I’m at a car event. :)
