#DoingJim @Equinox #EQXPursuit

Working out with my colleague and his presence made me push harder. He’s a hardcore workout buff so I decided to join him in a spin class in Westwood. I love the spin classes with games, makes the entire class go by quickly.

I have to wear a headband when I spin cause I’m working hard!

I had been dying to check out Waldorf and finally we had the opportunity. Though the original crew BWD (Babes Who Dine) weren’t available, we made the best of it!

Happy Birthday Laura! We spent the evening drinking and eating and catching up on life. It’s really nice to get together for a celebration because we get so caught up with work and our personal life that it’s hard to find time to meet with different friends.

The hotel was beautiful. I did feel a bit out-of-place (like I usually do) in a new spot, but even more so here because Waldorf is so fancy. I mean, valet is $50.

Would I go back? For sure… I’d love to check out brunch.

We had to recreate Vegas for our friend GT so we rented out a space and threw him the best Vegas like birthday. Though it did not include any champagne.

We got a taco lady, full bar (no bartenders, but it worked out really well), ramen bar, photo booth, some decorations, DJ and dessert station.

I ordered a beverage dispenser that we filled with alcohol and it ended up being a better option than hiring staff. I got a photo printed cake from Ralphs which was the best tasting cake I’ve ever had. It was a marble cake with whipped frosting, bananas and strawberry filling. Everything turned out super well, GT got caked in the face and I didn’t get a photo with the birthday boy.

Usually that’s what happens when I’m having too much fun. I forget about taking photos and posting on social media.

@UglyDelicious @DavidChang #MUSTWATCH

I was flying out to Chicago (almost 4 hour flight) for the weekend so I decided to DL the new docuseries from David Chang. Lucky me, it was released the day I was departing.

First of all, I’ve never been to any of his establishments except Milkbar in NY. I don’t consider myself a foodie but I do love to eat and IDK why I never had the inclination to visit them. I mean, I visited NY and Vegas so many times in the past two years, I had every chance! I guess maybe I’m not into the hype thing. If something is so popular, I tend to stay away. Maybe because I don’t want to be disappointed from the expectations that I create in my head from the hype. 😛

Anyway, first episode was about pizza. About 1/2 way into the episode I got bored and moved onto episode 2, Tacos. I enjoyed the Tacos episode but wasn’t feeling satisfied. I watched home cooking and was surprised to see that he was married to a Korean girl. Damn, my chance of snatching him up was out. For some reason I tried to pay close attention to their dynamic on the show, like it would explain or answer something for me. I noticed she didn’t talk much on the show, wondered if maybe it was the direction he gave her or if she was just not the talking type. I then also noticed the interaction when he came over in Copenhagen to the house, their greeting wasn’t as warm as I expected it to be.

I skipped the Crawfish, went to BBQ, then straight to Fried Rice. Before the last episode, I watched Crawfish.

I had seen the preview with Ali Wong, whom I adore, and was waiting patiently throughout all the episodes… hoping when they started to talk about the Viet food she would appear. It wasn’t until the Stuffed episode where I got to hear her behave completely ridiculous. #soupjizz

I had no expectations of the show, or David. Honestly, I just recently found out he was Korean. He didn’t even exist in my world until I heard about Majordomo opening in LA and the sneak preview on Ali Wong’s IG post.

I mean, I don’t exist in his life either so we’re even.

It took a couple of episodes for me to really get into it but once I was in, I was hooked. It was like binge watching a 12 season series like Grey’s Anatomy, you just wanted to see the next one even though I knew there wasn’t a correlation from the previous. I mean, kind of but not really.

What I liked most about the docuseries was that it was very informative. David knew so much about a lot of things and the things he didn’t, he admitted. I think the pizza episode started slow for me because there was a lot of talking which I didn’t know was coming, but now knowing the premise of the show, I understood the need for all the dialogue.

I also saw an old crush I forgot about, #DavidChoe, and found a new one, #MarioCarbone. There were moments I teared up because of the deep emotions that were shared by business owners, the hardships that were had and the bond of people who were shown. Every time something Korean came up, I felt proud, I felt honored to be a part of something that I wasn’t really a part of, if that makes sense.

I think if you have the platform to have your voice be heard, you need to be as informative as possible and David did just that. I saw newspaper clippings from back in the days regarding black and Vietnamese people who I never knew existed. I was exposed to things I probably would never have known about.

I believe in what David wants to do. Bringing people together with food is probably the most accurate. There are no lines/colors when people are feasting. I’ll drive to the not so metropolitan areas to get yummy food/drinks. People will go colorblind for something tasty. David has the right idea.

I resonated with a lot of the things that he shared, whether it had to do with food or not. There are very few things in life where after you experience you realize you need to evaluate your life and make sure you are doing exactly what you want to do.

My favorite part of the series was that he visited a world known chef in Italy who provided a class to make tortellinis to young adults with autism and it was so heartwarming to see that. People are unaware of autistic kids and to provide that opportunity for them is commendable. I have a cousin with an autistic child and I worry about his future. There should be something like that in the states for them.

This is what it did to me. I closed the app after the last episode and I pondered about what I was doing with my life. The next step is the action.

@RaelBox #MustTry

So I got sent these organice menstural items and was excited to use it. Having that it was sent right after my period, I had to wait almost a month.

(find the products here)

I use overnight pads when I’m most heavy when I sleep. I also use pantyliners during the first couple of days and the last couple of days. I have this weird thing where I stop bleeding for a day and it appears again. And every time, it tricks me. Pantyliners come in handy.

I didn’t know what to expect, I never thought of going organic but after the first use, I’m a bit obsessed.

For me, I don’t know the difference other than to describe how it feels. It felt cleaner if that makes sense. The material was comfortable, I didn’t feel like I was sweating or smelly. The feeling of wearing Rael was a much better experience than Playtex or whatever other brand I’d pick up at the store.

And I’m not just saying this because I was sent this stuff. If you know me, I’m going to be candid about my opinions even if it was for free… it’s typically with food so this is a bit different.

I’ll use it again on my next cycle and see if my opinion stays the same…

Thank you Rael for sending!
