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…

Happy Valentines Day!

Happy Valentine’s Day Everyone!

I’m sorry for the lack of blog entries yesterday, I was a bit busy with life but all is better today…I think. I ended up calling the mechanic yesterday but when I told him that someone stole my right headlight cover he just laughed on the phone and told me to come in so I drove right over and yup, someone stole it. I asked if he could order both headlight covers so I can just kill two birds with one stone but he only asked about the one. Oh well. He said he should have it by today so hopefully I’ll get it fixed soon. STOP STEALING SHIT FROM MY CAR! Grr…

I have been saving money for my next car though! I know I want an older classic car but I haven’t picked a specific one as of yet. But what about this one you guys?

Can’t you just see me in a little two seater 230 SL? And look at those hubcaps. They’re just TO DIE FOR! Hahaha. I’m such a dork sometimes.

And this wouldn’t be a complete blog entry if I didn’t talk about the NBA so here goes! There are some good games to look out for today. I thought about going to the Lakers vs Hawks game tonight but I had a paper due in class and I would probably end up going by myself so I decided against it. Sad I know. There are 9 games today…

New York Knicks vs Toronto Raptors

Knicks are going to win. Carmelo and Amare should be back for today’s game so it’ll be one to keep your eyes on. We’ll see how everyone meshes together. Plus, the Raptors are 9-20. Or will they beat the Knicks like they beat them on January 2nd, 90-85? The next two games they have with the Knicks are both in March, 20th and 23rd. If they manage to win today it’ll be a good upset for the Knicks.

Miami Heat vs Indiana Pacers

The 2nd and 5th best team on the Eastern Conference. This game will probably give us a good heads up on what we’ll be looking forward to during the Playoffs.

The Pacers lost to the Heat on January 4th – 83-118. So this will be their second go around with the Heat and then the next game between the two teams is on March 10th and the last one on the 26th of March. Hopefully it’ll be a much closer game today instead of the 35 point loss they suffered in January.

San Antonio Spurs vs Detroit Pistons

Again, I think this one will be a no brainer. The Spurs are currently the #2 team on the Western Conference. They are surprisingly at 19-9 where the Pistons are only at 8-21 with a PCT of only 0.276. Still better than the Bobcats but not by THAT much. If I’m correct…tonight will be the only game between the Spurs and the Pistons…weird.

Sacramento Kings vs Chicago Bulls

Yet another no brainer in my honest opinion. #1 in the Eastern Conference vs…#14 on the Western Conference? There’s only one team worse than them on the West and that’s the Hornets…The Bulls beat the Kings December 29th,  108-98. And today will be the second and last game between the two.

Houston Rockets vs Memphis Grizzlies

This game might actually turn out to be a good one. They aren’t too spread out when it comes to W-L’s and they’re both fighting to make it to the Playoffs. The Grizzlies won against the Rockets December 30, 113-93. A 20 point win IS pretty significant. This is also their second game and the next game between the two is actually pretty soon, February 20th, so next Monday they’ll be able to dish it out again. And their last game against each other is on March 30th.

Utah Jazz vs Oklahoma City Thunder

And again, this game should be no biggie for Durant and Westbrook. They beat the Jazz last friday the 10th, 101-87. And then their last game together is March 20th. I really don’t know what happened to the Jazz this year. Al Jefferson needs to step it up, Paul Millsap has been stepping up his game though. Maybe if Josh Howard can put down some points this game will be worth watching.

 I’ll give my input on the three other games tonight after I finish typing up my essay. I wrote it down pen and paper style so I just need to type it up. I like how it came out though.
