LAX -> JFK

Visited my gf again in NY and brought Bear with me. He got to enjoy the subway ride into the city.

My gf met me at the airport so I could learn how to ride back into the city. I was fine until we arrived into Manhattan and I had to lug my suitcase up four flights of stairs! Narrow ones too! People were coming down as I was going up and it was just too tight for me to comfortably carry luggage up those flights.

The last flight, my gf carried it for me! :P

The city wasn’t as cold and there was still snow in the streets. Dirty snow.

I got to enjoy the city on Saturday, roaming around and going to MAD and MOMA.

I used to say MAD was my favorite museum because the one time I visited, the exhibits were so cool and I fell in love, BUT this time around, it wasn’t that great.

I didn’t like ANY of the exhibits. MOMA was just okay too. My first time. It was super crowded and very expensive. $25! That’s crazy!

The reason why I loved MAD was that I saw the most gorgeous chandelier in the lobby which has been removed. I didn’t think it was an exhibit, but I guess it was.

I also saw an exhibit where the artist used syringes to create a beautiful enormous chandelier. The exhibits weren’t as modern and to me, I didn’t see any art and design aspects. It was more of a historical exhibit. Not my cup of tea.

I did enjoy the gift shop and picked up some greeting cards. (I love greeting cards)

On Sunday before my trip, I picked up Katz for Bear. :)

I did NOT have Shack Shack this trip, but we did go to Marea. Thank you JH for lunch!

Bear asked and I shut him down @herschelsupply

He had a Christmas list for me and I didn’t get one thing on the list. I refuse to be in public with a man in a football jersey and with Jordan Retro 11 on his feet.

This backpack was in the list and I thought about it since I hate his backpack now but I kind of want it for myself… :P

NYC Visits LA

During Christmas break, my gf JL visited from NY. She stayed with me the whole six days and we totally vegged out~

We ate, slept, not so much drink and ate again. We probably ate Del Taco about seven times. She introduced me to ordering chicken soft tacos with no cheese and I was mind blown.

We almost went to Las Vegas for a night but it didn’t work out and we were ambitious in planning the week but ended up being bums in bed and watching a bunch of movies and shows.

I never realized how amazing it would be to have nothing to do for a week. We get so caught up in being a robot for the rest of the year that when the holidays come, we don’t fully appreciate it until it’s over.

Oh on a side note, we did work out so we weren’t complete losers. :P

#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

#MustWatch #AlvinandtheChipmunks


Tyler was with us for the weekend and on our last night we watched Alvin and the Chipmunks Road Chip together. I laughed out loud and enjoyed it much more than I thought I would.

It’s a great family movie, so everyone should go watch it, or at least when it comes out on Netflix or DVD!

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. :(
