MyCeviche reminded me of the east coast version of poke restaurants in California. I found this quick-stop restaurant in an article listing Top Places to Eat at in Miami. I’m glad we squeezed in time for some refreshing ceviche. Healthy and delicious in a plate is my favorite thing.
I love when my mom cooks food that reminds me of my birthplace — Hawaii. This morning, I woke up to perfectly crisped Portuguese sausages, scrambled eggs, and rice with a pinch of nori (a mixture of seaweed and sesame seeds). I rarely ever go to McDonald’s, but when I’m in Hawaii… it’s a must.
Happy Valentine’s Day 😘 Mark got me a very specific amount of roses for a very specific (and sweet) reason.
It is always a good time with mine and Mark’s favorite couple, Christine and Geoffrey. Many known them as #Geoffthaang ♡ This weekend we were able to meet up more than usual. This is rare because we have a lot of distance and time working against us. However, we make it work. Our adventures are random and unplanned and we like to go with the flow. The photos below are of us trying the famous ham and cheese croissants at Seaside Bakery. We stayed up until four in the morning walking on the beach and Newport Beach pier. Then, when we headed home time passed and we watched the sunrise. Next thing we knew, we were walking next to the Santa Ana Riverbed and relay racing in a playground. We parted ways at around 9:00 to 10:00 in the morning. Even though we were exhausted for the rest of the day, I wouldn’t have spent the time with Mark, Geoff, and Christine in any other way.
Mark and I went to Seattle, Washington for Spring Break 2015! We mainly went for vacation and to check out potential schools there. It was Mark’s first time there and I am so happy he loved it.
The Starbucks Roastery just opened for business this past January 2015 and we were lucky enough to find it pass the freeway on the outskirts of Downtown Seattle. Serious Pie is a restaurant (not owned by Starbucks), but residing in the Roastery. The pizza was soooo good! When I rewatch this vlog, I get hungry for the gourmet “pies” all over again.
The Anaheim Packing District is the new fad in Orange County. I have been there twice and I’ve gone back just for the food and the scenery. Today my boyfriend and I went ‘venturing together at the Packing District. He showed me the hidden bar on the lower floor — I was amazed. We ate some delicious homemade ice cream. Mark also ordered a cup of IPA. There are so many things to look at there and so many choices for food, drinks, snacks, etc. I also love that everything is organic, locally grown and community-centered.
