Lost in Taipei…Literally

I will be honest and admit that I wasn’t initially excited for this trip to Taiwan. I had so much going on with work and life that a last minute trip to Taiwan seemed more tedious than anything. I texted Cdj after I landed in Taipei airport feeling defeated for whatever reasons being back. His… Read More Lost in Taipei…Literally


The Marshall Store ( Best surprise trip ever! ) – Tomales Bay, CA

I just re read the title post and chuckled. What if people think this post is about me going to Marshalls (the department store). Joking aside, this is a belated post about my trip to San Francisco some weeks ago. I had the most memorable surprise day trip. Kat and Al had suggested either Napa… Read More The Marshall Store ( Best surprise trip ever! ) – Tomales Bay, CA


Mister Jiu’s – San Francisco, CA

I didn’t realize I was MIA from writing until recently. That is an utmost great sign that, well, I have a life. Seriously. My friends think: more posts = no life ; less posts = life.

Big Catch Seafood House ( $45 AYCE Sunday Brunch)

My holy trinity in life consists of all F’s: Faith, family, and food friends. I was determined to visit my family in LA on Christmas Day.

We visited Big Catch some weeks ago… Read More Big Catch Seafood House ( $45 AYCE Sunday Brunch)


Crab Town – San Diego, CA

My world revolves around food. It truly does. I’ve always said food brings people together. A meal can mend, heal, celebrate whatever you’re going through.

R&B Crawfish Lounge

We often talk about the best restaurants to take a first date. I might have just found the place to take her (or him) if you 1) either like her/him alot or 2) want to see her/him patience threshold. More to come on that later. We noticed R&B Crawfish Lounge being built for some time… Read More R&B Crawfish Lounge

Wonderland Ocean Pub

I’m used to getting my ocean views when I visit La Jolla or Del Mar. But those views are kinda pricey when you’re enjoying them from a restaurant in those cities. I don’t visit Ocean Beach as often but was curious about Wonderland Ocean Pub as I heard their 2nd floor views of the ocean… Read More Wonderland Ocean Pub


Oceana Coastal Kitchen (Sunday Champagne Brunch)

I figured out the secret(s) to having a successful Sunday brunch: you must like the company that is sitting next to you; there must be some sort of classy liqueur; and there must be an abundant amount of fresh seafood. Oceana Coastal Kitchen was my answer to ‘Brunch, where’ve you been all my life?’. Their… Read More Oceana Coastal Kitchen (Sunday Champagne Brunch)
