LA in Oct

You know you're getting old when you're tired as hell from traveling on a whim. It's been 2 days since we got back from LA and I still feel like gramps. What are we going to do now that we can't handle cheap early bird flights? Dammit.

There aren't many pictures from this trip, but you have to trust me when I say we contributed to a fair share of LA's dining taxes.

A very Virgin welcome

A very cranky bf

Mood lighting on the plane

The bf all decked out with his iPod gear

Virgin America's in-flight entertainment unit "Red" was pretty rad. I would've chatted with other passengers on the plane but god knows better than to do that at 6AM in the morning. The bf sent me a message I'm resisting from sharing with the public. It's so vulgar it made me roll on the ground laughing (seat belt tightened and all, of course)

Upon arrival, we stopped by at Livie's office in Santa Monica. The room is huge

And yes, she was working on a Saturday

Breakfast at Jinkie's while Livie worked

The bf's La Fonda omelette. Gotta love the name

...and my Huevos Rancheros. Anything with melted cheese in the morning is good

Macaroon-tasting in the afternoon. This was 1 of the highlights of our trip. More on that in another entry

Checking out Livie's new digs

Our favorite boys

Guess whose mess?

Livie came back from a gala tribute to Julia Roberts the night before with a goodie bag filled with these! As bestfriend, I got to take all the chocolate stuff home with me (also cause Livie's allergic!). Yum!

Dinner in Tokyo town where I used to hang out with kids from USC

Livie's konyaku-jelly-like pasta with seafood

The bf's katsu hamburger curry

Keema curry for me. The hard boiled egg has a surprise raw yolk within

Quick PM trip to LBC


The bf stocked up on snacks at Nijiya while I, Valrhona from Surfas. That's pretty much it for now. I gotta get some work done before hitting the sack.

Meanwhile, hugs and kisses to all for your support on Macarune!
