Last month we celebrated my dear friend and collegue, Ingrid’s birthday.
We went back to Delilah cause we love that place and I LOVE their burger!
Did you ever go to Vanguard? Because I went recently for an event and it brought back so many memories. I didn’t go much because the promoter was Visionshock and I liked House of Glam parties… the outdoor patio was redone and so pretty.
Checked out the new Jeremy Hotel with colleagues and enjoyed the view and space very much. Sad that HWOOD is taking over and redoing the entire thing.
I didn’t shave so don’t mind my leg hairs if you can see them. I fell so many times on NYE, it’s laughable.
Some kept appearing after the fact. The ones on my leg hurt first, then it got blue. As for my arm, I just noticed it when I was curling my hair.
BTW, I am not a fan of Hello Kitty but I happen to have this towel wrap which I always go to after getting out of the shower. It’s so easy, most of the time easier than the robe cause it doesn’t have sleeves.
Also, I have not been that sloppy since IDK when. I made sure to let Bear know that my behavior was not usual. He laughed of course and played along with the joke, “Uh huh sure…” Basically, I don’t allow myself to act a fool when I’m traveling with DJ Mike K. It would make him look bad because he’s working. He’s a professional. If he were to be dragging a girl out, he probably wouldn’t get hired anymore, which means I won’t be able to go to Vegas… 🙁
I felt safe with Bear around, enough so that I got so shitfaced. #funtimes.
After I got back from Vegas I ended up meeting a friend in Hollywood… Bad decision because I’m still dying from sleep deprivation.
Did I have fun? Heck yea!
We were warmly welcomed by my colleague, her husband and friends. I quickly remembered to grab a bottle of my favorite hot sauce before running out the door. Bear made a few dishes while I took a nap.
Growing up in a Korean household, we never really celebrated it the “American” way. We had Korean food and had a party, maybe once in a while, we ordered from Boston Market, but that was as close to Thanksgiving growing up.
This year, we did not go to Kansas, therefore we had nothing to do. Bear insisted on cooking a two person meal for us… boy did I get lucky when my colleague invited us.
At the get together, we had all the fixings and everything was very yummy. If it had been just us two celebrating, he would have cooked Cornish hens with sides.
Another year has come around and I have so much to be thankful for. The new friendships, opportunities and milestones that have occurred in the past year has made me super grateful for my life. Though there are parts that can be better, I will forever cherish each memory and look forward to the future!
Ladies’ HH at Delilah WeHo. Love this place. Bathroom review coming soon!
They have a live 3-person show, although the singer can be a bit better… the music style is freaking amazing. I love standards so this establishment is just up my alley. Ambiance is great, food was delicious… however, it’s a bitch trying to get reservations and you can’t even get it to sit at the bar without one.
I need to make friends with the boys from H. Wood Group.
My colleague had her birthday several weeks ago and I got to visit the Sunset Tower Hotel for the first time! I loveeeedddd their bar, we had great drinks and apps until the birthday girl arrived. We ended up at Skybar at the Mondrian Hotel, I didn’t stay late since I had an early am the next day.
I need to go back though…
The school year is over for most but for Bear and I, we are still working towards our degrees. Bear is in school for his MBA, I think he’s the smartest bf I’ve ever had. I am in school for my Bachelor’s Degree. B.S. Communications. I have two more quarters to go and Bear… well… he has 1.5 more years to go. Maybe even two, but I want to round down. The class that is graduating had a party, so everyone in the MBA program was invited. I had just touched down from Vegas and wasn’t in the mood to drink, but I was in the mood for some tacos, which they were serving. I people watched all night while I tried to get Bear to go talk and mingle. He refused. He didn’t want to leave me in the corner with my phone and shoving my face with tacos. Either he thinks someone will sweep me away or he thinks I can’t shoo them away myself. Either way, he stuck to me like glue and wouldn’t network. Well, not as much as he could. His buddies in his class came by and said hello.
I also saw Eugene Lee Yang from BuzzFeed. I was super excited to meet him (went up and introduced myself) and gave him my card asking if there was an opening. 😛 He was nice (or acted really nice) and friendly. Didn’t realize he was a producer… etc. So cool. And he’s Korean. 🙂
