Food Travel: Seattle Series

B and I enjoyed our time leisurely in Seattle after we got back from Los Angeles – meaning we ate a lot of good food and walked around downtown (and finally watched Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them!). First off, Din Tai Fung – obviously. Before watching Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them, we went…

Food Travel: Los Angeles Series

Usually, when B and I travel, we end up not having proper meals until dinner time since we want to savour our limited time on our trips as much as possible experiencing different things. However, who knew that we would be able to experience something surprising and shocking during our dinner on our first night…

Los Angeles Series: Winter Beaches

On the third and last day of our trip to Los Angeles, we didn’t really have much of a plan, except to just enjoy our time (and soaking up the sunny, warm weather) before heading back to the polar opposite weather in Seattle and Vancouver. Since we went to Santa Monica Beach during our long…

Los Angeles Series: Universal Studios

Last winter break, we went to Universal Studios in Florida, and this year, we celebrated Christmas Day at the one in Los Angeles. Although some of the rides were similar, it was still just as amazing – if not even more so – than last year because good company equals good times (and I don’t…

Los Angeles Series: Six Flags Magic Mountain

For our Los Angeles trip, B and I packed light after our previous travelling experiences. We were only in LA for three days, and we decided to go to Six Flags Magic Mountain on the first day, which coincidentally was Christmas Eve. On Christmas Day, we went to Universal Studios, and for the last day,…

Food Travel: Las Vegas Series

These are some pictures I took of the food we had in Las Vegas. We had dinner at Lago on our last night and was pleasantly surprised to find that we ordered exactly the right amount of food for the both of us to share. The food was also delicious! Although we didn’t do any…

Las Vegas Series: Hotel Hopping

After being tourists in San Francisco, we flew over to Las Vegas and had a relaxing time exploring the desert in air conditioned hotels (most of the time anyways). We chose to check out some of the nearby hotels near us for the two out of three days that we were there. It was really exciting…

Food Travel: San Francisco Series

This is just a heavy photo post of some of the delicious food we had in San Francisco (because it has been so long that I can’t really remember anymore).

San Francisco Series: de Young Art Museum

Our last stop in San Francisco (and finally completing the series – whew!) was de Young Art Museum. Having been somewhat accustomed to – what I thought was – Vancouver’s large Art Gallery, I was even more impressed at de Young museum where it seemed that people could easily get lost from one another. There were…

San Francisco Series: Conservatory of Flowers

Continuing from the last blog post that I did on San Francisco (which was quite a while back… oops), this one is about our second-to-last stop before flying to Las Vegas that night. We went to the Conservatory of Flowers and admired all the pretty things inside. My favourite part was the gift shop with all…

Seattle Series: Weekend Getaway

My visit to Seattle was eyeopening. I found many similarities that it had with Vancouver, as well as distinct differences. It also broke away some of the presumptions that I had prior to exploring the city, such as there was a bigger night life in Seattle than Vancouver (not really). Since I arrived at night,…

Seattle Series: Sherlock Holmes Exhibition

Before I went to Seattle, B had snapped me a picture of a banner at the Pacific Science Center displaying their current exhibition on Sherlock Holmes. Obviously, I had to go, see, and experience the exhibition. After all, it is Sherlock Holmes we’re talking about. I’m really happy that we went because it was a lot…

Seattle Series: Pacific Science Centre

B and I went to the Pacific Science Centre and I had a lot of fun. It is very similar to Vancouver’s Science World with their body/kinetic exhibition, bugs exhibition, and some puzzle stations. This is an interactive “healthy eating” station at the science centre, and B and I spent some time here trying to…

Seattle Series: University of Washington

Over the past weekend, I hopped onto the bus from Vancouver to Seattle to visit B and to celebrate his birthday. I arrived at night, so we just finished watching Suits and decided to explore the next morning. The next day, B brought me to the University of Washington to explore. We walked around the campus…

San Francisco Series: Alcatraz Island

(Note: Some of these pictures are taken by B.) After visiting Chinatown and the world’s crookedest street, we went to the pier to wait for our boat across the waters to Alcatraz Island, where it was known to be the place where those who break the prison rules go.   Once we arrived, we went…

San Francisco Series: Chinatown and Crookedest Street

(Note: Some of these pictures are taken by B.) On our second day in San Francisco, we went to check out the largest and oldest Chinatown (outside Asia). As we were dropped off at the entrance, I could already see and feel the Chinatown vibe oozing out from the lion stone statue and the traditional…

San Francisco Series: Golden Gate Bridge

(Note: Some of these pictures are taken by B.) After visiting the Painted Ladies, we got a ride to Golden Gate Bridge. Before we started our trek, we went to the gift shop and purchased some souvenirs. B and I bought matching T-shirts (to his dismay) and some postcards and trinkets. Once we finished, we…

San Francisco Series: Arrival and Exploring

(Note: Some of these pictures are taken by B.) B and I recently just came back from our trip to San Francisco and Las Vegas. We stayed in San Francisco for almost three days, and two days in Las Vegas. We had a great time and I can’t wait to share all the places we…
