MY WEEK IN PHOTOS: JANUARY 28–FEBRUARY 3, 2019!

A rainy week in Los Angeles. Marie and I get lost in Eataly, take my parents to the car museum, plant a new mini veggie garden on wheels, and celebrate Dan’s piano skills and the Superbowl on the same night.

Enjoy!

Tried these fresh noodles with pesto that I got from Eataly when I was with Marie. This pesto turned out pretty good, I added a lot of butter and garlic.

Untitled
Untitled
YUM, more garlic the better.

Had a work night in. I edited some photos and we caught up on Ru Paul’s All Stars 4.

Friday we had a team meeting that ended with a couple hours at the pool hall. Nice to team bond and prove how bad I am at billiards.

Brought home some extra babies too. I got a cherry tomato plant, a Japanese eggplant, three shishito peppers, and a jalapeno.

Got these planter boxes too, they come with built in drainage, and they are on wheels so I can move them around.

We also repotted the money tree into a bigger pot.

A rainy Saturday afternoon, felt appropriate to have some tea.

A sad dinner, but it was just a work night in. Quiet and full of avocado.

Morning! Sunday and we decided to take advantage of the rainy day and try to check out the Lunar New Year stuff at Disneyland.

I know this looks funky, but it caught my attention and I wanted to try it. It is a caramel apple churro—the green stuff is sour and you dip it into the caramel. I weirdly loved it. It reminded me exactly of the caramel apple lollipops? Those were the shit.

Untitled
Started pouring rain as we were eating our churro.

Untitled
Untitled
Decided to split a grilled cheese sandwich and tomato soup mmm.

Picked up Kiki and Ders and went to see Dan’s recital for his phd program at USC. ~whoa TALENT~ So fun to see him play.

Untitled
Untitled
After the recital we went back to my place to watch the Superbowl. It was basically already over by the time we got home, but we recorded it and all agreed not to look at our phones just in case of spoilers.

Kiki brought lumpia, which we re-heated. Zach made queso, and we collaborated on some guacamole haha.

  1. Are you a sports fan? Who is your team?
    If based on my childhood, I’d say Lakers (we were a Lakers household when they were peak winning championships and stuff) but now? I don’t really have a team. Just enjoy going to games and shouting.
  2. Did you celebrate Lunar New Year? Any highlights?
    Japanese New Year is on the 1st of the year, so sadly no Lunar New Year with the family. But admiring celebrations from afar…
  3. Most recent video you watched online?
    Just watched the most recent of the “Pastry Chef Makes” series from Bon Appetit. Claire tries to make Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups.

Much love friends!

  1. Long time lurker here 🙂
    The accupuncture was for you skin, wasn’t it? Do you feel like it’s helping? I’ve got this eczema around my eyes and it’s starting to really annoy me, so I’m thinking about different approaches to get rid of it…

    To answer your questions in return:
    1. Are you a sports fan? Who is your team?
    Not really, apart from the regular world cup stuff happening. Mostly I’m rooting for my hometowns soccer team, just because it’s my hometown

    2. Did you celebrate Lunar New Year? Any highlights?
    Nope. 🙂

    3. Most recent video you watched online?
    Modern Family

    1. Helllllo! Aw I love when lurkers come to the comment section. Welcome 🙂

      I’m so sorry to hear you’re dealing with eczema, it SUCKS. And sometimes can feel like nothing will help it. I went to acupuncture for skin issues, and I related that mixed with being more careful with potential allergy-threats plus taking daily anti-histamines and making sure the rest of my body was moisturized too all contributed to helping my skin calm down. I think acupuncture is helpful to center, de-stress, and focus on your body in a controlled, calm environment. Give it a try and see if you like it! I hope your skin calms down soon…

  2. Are you a sports fan? Who is your team?
    – I love football (soccer) and tennis. My team is Bayern Munich because that’s my hometown, but I also love Olympique Lyonnais because that’s where I did study abroad!

    Did you celebrate Lunar New Year? Any highlights?
    -I didn’t celebrate Lunar New Year.

    Most recent video you watched online?
    – A video about art and capitalism. It was very interesting.
