All I do is eat…

So yesterday I woke up a little early so I could go get some breakfast pastries for Mark, myself and Olivo.

I drove down to Liliha Bakery which is pretty close by if I use the freeway. I’m sure there are other bakeries in the neighborhood that I need to try out but I always get so paranoid about trying to go to new places because I’m always worried I’m going to overshoot the actual location and have to make SEVERAL loops around the block to find the place AND/OR there is no parking ANYWHERE!

I have a legitimate reason to be paranoid because I feel like not having a parking space and overshooting a location is all I do in my car. I’m usually VERY good with directions but everything is on a one way street that like either leads to a freeway on ramp (that I do not want to go on) OR there is no opportunity to turn around to get back to where I was.

I got some donuts, a chocolate cream puff, an eclair, an apple turnover AND MY FAVORITE a sweet potato crescent. I swear I only get like two things at this place. The blueberry scone and the sweet potato crescent. It seriously reminds me of my time in Japan and I just love it!

Also testing out some photo apps on my phone. I feel as though I’m not sufficiently Asian enough to have already mastered every photo app out there to make my skin brighter or my eyes wider but I’m working on it! Hahaha.

But after chillaxing at home Olivo and I decided to take a walk down to Chinatown to look around and to see if there was anything worth buying from the Macy’s that is closing.

I was SO excited once I got to the little Chinese markets. I felt like I was back home again! They had all my favorite foods!

I bought two packets of instant noodles that Olivo SAID were spicy (because I love spicy food) BUT they weren’t spicy at all! She lied! I had to put a shit ton of Sriracha into it before I could eat it.

Also bought Strawberry Cakes! Olivo brought me all different flavors and I just loved them! They’re kind of like Fig Newtons but better! Tastier with a wide range of flavors!

I also bought a bag of peeled roasted chestnuts and needless to say I had finished it way too quickly. I absolutely LOVE chestnuts! I think I could live off of them if I had to. My mother and grandmother always bring them when they come to visit but they never last very long. But now that I know I can get it in Chinatown I am definitely going to go by more often!

AND I also bought Almond Jello Mix! They serve it as dessert in Chinese restaurants and it is SO DELICIOUS! I usually don’t care for Jello but I’ve always loved getting this at the end of every Chinese meal! I can’t wait to try it at home!!!

And this morning we watched the end of the Lakers vs Raptors game as well as both NFL games. And of course I wake up to the Lakers losing…to a team that is not even anywhere near playoffs! It just hurts to be a Lakers fan right now… I think I might start up a:

“NO DWIGHT 2013”

campaign soon.

But I also made some Cinnamon Tortilla crisps this morning since I hadn’t in a long time. Also made an experimental tortilla pizza with salsa, parmesan, mozzarella and pepperoni and it turned out pretty good! The only issue was that the salsa I used was SUPER SPICY so the pizza ended up being super spicy so I just need to be mindful of that next time.

I can’t believe both the 49ers AND the Ravens are going to the Superbowl. I guess you got your birthday wish Austin.

We’ll get there next year Broncos! I believe in you Peyton!

After that Mark and I went to Walmart and got our groceries for the week and when we came home Olivo was back so we decided to go out and get dinner.

Olivo wanted to get a Loco Moco so I thought we could try Like Like Drive Inn. I’ve always driven by it but I’ve never been there so I’m glad I had an excuse to go. Olivo got the Loco Moco and I got the Oxtail which came with a soup, salad, drink and dessert!

Surprisingly my dish was pretty good. I do love Oxtail and I haven’t had any since I was in Hong Kong. The dish itself came with mashed potatoes and corn (which I also very much love). I gave the salad to Olivo since I despise the very existence of salad and I had the spinach soup as an appetizer. The soup wasn’t bad but I’m not quite sure what to think about it. It was…different. And for dessert I asked for a recommendation and she brought me the blueberry ice cream. I usually don’t like ice cream but it was actually really flavorful and surprisingly smooth.

I really do need to start back at the gym…

“You know how I know you’re wet?

Cause my dick is thirsty.” -Hobo with a Shotgun

Hello to my single follower on WordPress!

I know it’s been a long time but I’m back!

In the words of my favorite gay, “Yeahhhhhhh buddy!”

Work was crazy busy today. So much so that I ended up staying from 9am till about 4:30pm. I better make some bomb ass tips, you know what I’m saying? I really need that money…but don’t we all right? This one customer was so pissed with me today. There were people in front of him on the wait list! What was I supposed to do? Snap my fingers twice to make another table appear out of thin air? Too bad for him I can’t for the life of me snap my fingers. Oh well. Guess everyone will have to WAIT THEIR FUCKING TURN! But the cafe closed early today for a night event so me and Eddie got to roll out of there pretty quick.

SOOOO… instead of going to the gym like we had planned we ended up going to BIG 5. I haven’t been to a BIG 5 since middle school when they forced something called Physical Education on me.  I shudder just thinking back on those days… but it’s okay…it’s all over now. Anyways, getting back to the point, the real reason why we went to BIG 5 was so I could find some orange athletic socks for tomorrow. Why would I need orange athletic socks for Super Bowl Sunday when neither team has orange as any of their colors? Because my team has orange in it’s color scheme Bitches! That’s write I’m dressing up like a Denver Broncos Cheerleader tomorrow. Divisional Playoffs what? That’s right. If anyone has anything to say about it tomorrow then they can shove it up their ass. Like I’d take up Giants and/or Patriots color for a day? Naw…I don’t roll that way bra. You guys can look forward to a picture tomorrow. Yuuuuuuuup!~

What better way to wrap up a hard shopping workout than a little yogurt-y treat? A few things…but it was the closest thing on the way home so why not right?

Yeahhhhhh~ I managed to get a parking spot too. Lucky! We relaxed outside of Yogurtland until it got a bit too chilly for me. I mixed WAY too many flavors today…Plain tart + Red Velvet Cupcake Batter + Coconut + Guava and Pineapple + Mochi + Condensed Milk + Rainbow Sprinkles. DO NOT, I repeat, DO NOT THROW UP ONTO YOUR KEYBOARD. Find the closest waste bin. My blog entry will be waiting for you when you get back. I promise. Done throwing up? Cause you might want to keep the waste bin close to you for the next thing too.

They have a Peanut Butter & Jelly flavor of non-fat yogurt. Ugh…what is that all about? And no I did not try any. I know I’ve been trying to tone down my thighs a bit but I don’t think self induced vomiting will help that at all. Or will it? Hmmm… Decisions…decisions…

To be continued…after a HARDCORE night at Rebel Bingo. Yuuuuuuuuup!
