Went out last minute to a Halloween party for Privy last Friday. It was obviously a costume party but I had no costume. I did my best… I put on my Ultra Violet Bella Freud sweater, Violet boots, booty shorts, fur and said I was a superhero.
Girl’s road trip to Vegas while JL visited from NY and JR from Macau! We had the time of our lives… arrive Friday afternoon after stopping by In N Out and Krispy KremeP. We stayed at the Cosmo and went out to Omnia that evening. We then went to Drai’s and stayed out until 5am. Woke up around noon to head out after pho of course.
A trip to NY isn’t completed without a visit to The Circle NYC club in Koreatown.
I know, it’s so retarded that I still go k-clubbing but how can I not? I am KOREAN! 😛
We celebrated the night with JL and her bf and his friends. I almost hate NY in the summer because it’s so goddamn hot and thank GOD I had my hanky cause I needed to wipe my face, constantly. I don’t know how other girls do it with all the makeup on their face… I die!
What an eventful evening with so many other residents of Los Angeles!
The beginning was a bit hectic and intolerable but after a few glasses of champagne, we completely forgot about the horrific transpiration situation hours before!
I just wish our group leader (bus from BH) was a bit more organized because we arrived late and missed the whole napkin spin and other stuff.
Jo and I lugged one square table, two white foldable chairs, 1 cooler, 1 stick of bread, huge bag with stuff and ourselves all the way from Beverly Hills to the secret location.
Two years ago, it was on Rodeo Blvd., which we missed and was a way better location that Pershing Square. But I would like to say that LA is prolly really strict so blocking streets were not acceptable this year. BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!
I mean, Pershing Square is an open park where you can go and have a meal any time you want. So due to that reason, the location sucked, no novelty factor at all!
Jo and I were sweating and disgusting throughout the whole process. It was such a warm night and I couldn’t believe the amount of perspiration that I was oozing…
Luckily we had a hand cart and we were able to roll everything. I saw a few familiar faces and wanted to meet new friends, but it seemed like everyone was very cliquey and not engaging with people outside of their group. Note to self: come with a lot of friend next time.
We registered late so we barely had time to prep let alone get people sponsored and wait for a response from the Diner en Blanc team.
Even though the tranSportation part was a bitch, we forgot about it all by the end of our first bottle the night and we danced the night away! It was too much fun… I can’t wait to do it again AND I know how to prepare myself next time. 🙂
Nothing beats getting a scrub from the Korean ajumas. Jo and I got the Caribbean wrap, scrub and massage on Wednesday night. We could have done without the wrap. I only have a photo because as the ajuma was wrapping me, I made a comment about how funny it would be to have a photo of me wrapped. She offered to take a photo. 🙂
I was thinking about the job that the ajuma had. Aside from the disgusting aspect, the fact that she gets to chill in a bra and underwear all day, I’d totally take this job. If I were a non-English speaking Korean lady in Koreatown that is. If my other choices would be to be a cook at a #ktown restuarant or Korean market cashier, that is. I love chilling in my underwear at home. AND, she had flat abs and great arms. It could have been genetics but for an ajuma, she was working it!
Another funny thought at the spa was that it is so obvious who the non-English speaking women were and who the Americanized Korean women were. Most of them have never heard of trimming the hedges. It’s crazy how wild it looks! 😛
We ended the night at Mr. Bossam… but didn’t have the bossam, it was a waste of a trip to Mr. Bossam. I’ll have to try the bossam next time.
And if you’ve never gotten scrubbed before… please go. It’s fascinating how much dead skin they’re able to rub off of you. Bear wants to go but I told him it would be too painful for him because he has too much hair, everywhere.
We started with the punch bowl and then headed to The Continental Club.
We were having a great night until the rude loser bartender at #ContinentalClub gave me attitude when I asked for more ice in my vodka on the rocks. I’m sorry you guys serve two ice cubes with on the rocks drinks and my vodka was room temperature. I just wanted more ice and a few more limes. Is that too hard? He lied about their lime concentrate and said they were freshly squeezed when I asked. He then grabs a handfull of lime with his grubby hands and puts his hands out with his fist facing the bar top as if I would reach out my hand to receive it. Um, fucking get a napkin and place it on there OR put it in a cup.
So I just waited a minute. Literally, a minute. He still just stood there, he obviously hated his job. I grabbed a napkin and placed it under his hand on the bar top. He opened his hands and the limes fell on the napkin and a bit everywhere and he walked away.
I immediately asked for his name from the kind bartender that was helping us previously. I would have asked him but he was busy and his the overgrown body and disgusting facial hair was just standing there.
Dear Continental Club,
I get that I’m just a measily singular person who loves your club, but to have such bad service on a slow night? That’s just undeserving. Please talk to your guy. His name is Eric or however he spells it.
This was the best idea ever! Birthday workout and brunch followed by lots of drinking and more eating!
Although we stuffed ourselves, I didn’t feel so guilty because we burned 600 calories in the am.
Soul Cycle was amazing and I was anticipating my crotch hurting even prior to that. Of course I was in pain, halfway through the class. The faster I peddled, the more it hurt. I still managed to burn a shit ton of calories.
My crotch still hurts today. No joke.
We also saw Bobby Flay leaving the class right before ours. 🙂
One of us passed out due to all the drinking!
We drank at the Village Idiot because we didn’t know that Blu Jam Cafe didn’t serve alcohol. We discovered a new way to drink a Bloody Mary! Vodka on the rocks with a splash of Bloody Mary mix and lime. 😛
Our second meal was noodles, of course. We are Korean!
Also, the only thing I didn’t enjoy was being in my sweaty workout clothes all day. 🙁
