It was a really last minute trip! I can’t wait to share with you guys all the yummy food pics! we were debating on also going to Barcelona but instead changed our mind.. This officially means I’ve been to four countries in a month! I’m severely jetlagged but I think it’s worth it.

Travel Diary – Taiwan Day 1

  { First Day in Taiwan } I love Taiwan! It reminds me of Vietnam, only more modern. I love the motorcycles mixed in with the cars – the cheap food and all the night markets. I actually prefer it over Hong Kong, but I do think the weather is a bit too humid for my taste. Tomai took me to one of her favorite breakfast places near school. Our meal was only 2 dollars combined! I had the green onion pancakes, and she had the ham and cheese pancake. She had tea while I had orange juice. I loved my green onion pancake, it was so crispy and wasn’t dry at all! I was surprised to have it with egg, because I’ve had it at some korean restaurants but haven’t had the Taiwanese version before so that was a good touch. Getting Our Hair Shampooed. Usually in Vietnam, I always get my hair shampooed. It usually only costs about 2-3 USD dollars, and it lasts about 30 minutes or more because it comes with …

I’m in Taiwan!!

    Taiwan Travel Diary – First Night I made it to Taiwan! This was def a spur of the moment decision and I couldn’t be happier. Rachel and I decided to go to Taiwan – I left on Wednesday and arrived at the Taipei Airport at 8ish, got on a bus and finally made it back to the Taipei Main Station! And of course who else picked me up other than Tomai? She visited me in Hong Kong, so I thought I’d return the favor!  Because I actually got to the station pretty late, we decided to look for food but everything was pretty much closed since it was almost midnight. We settled on this Italian place… which I had four hours ago in HK; but oh well.  The trip to Taipei was only 233 USD from HK and the flight was only a hour and 30 minutes. For both of our meals we got a set meal for 380 NT = $12.50 !!!! Taiwan is so cheap compared to Hong Kong. Our meals came with: Soup …

Big Easy better than BB cream Review

Big Easy better than BB cream – Benefit It took a whole day to buy this! My sister wanted to buy me a foundation that had full coverage so we visited several shops to get my shade matched. We first went to ULTA, which was a horrible experience. I tried on various foundations: Urban Decay, Too Faced, and also bare minerals. The coverage seemed Medium and we decided to head to Macy’s. We originally wanted to stop by Sephora but we finally settled on heading to the Lancome counter. Lancome has a great deal that if you spend over a certain amount, then you can get a gift bag. The foundation we tried on was pretty nice and smelled great, but my sister said that she didn’t like the minimal coverage that it provided. We ended up at the benefit counter where we asked about a “foundation that has full coverage.” The girl at the counter said that they had a “BB cream” that has full coverage which I was confused about. Usually, BB cream …

Birthday Weekend

Santa Monica + Cabo Cantina   Brandon and I are always searching for things to do on weekends. We usually spend it eating (both 30 lbs heavier) or staying home and watching Netflix or Redbox. Since it was the weekend BEFORE my birthday, I decided that I wanted to go to Santa Monica. Surprisingly, the weather was perfect – the sun wasn’t out but it wasn’t cold at all! So, we made the 35 minute trip to Santa Monica. If you guys are following me on Instagram, you guys know that I got to eat at one of the best Mexican restaurants ever! Okay, I am exaggerating – one of the best Mexican Restaurants on the strip due to its affordability and amazing food. Plus, look at that huge huge huge margarita – there’s patron in it 😀 All under the cut!

What I’ve been eating.

    I’ve been eating oatmeal everyday for the past four days! An accomplishment indeed, especially since I hated oatmeal. Whole wheat pita bread, cilantro and chive yogurt dip, my freshly made oatmeal (maple brown and sugar), PENNYWORTH Juice and Coconut water.  Trader Joe’s Oatmeal & Pure Coconut Water Maple Brown and Sugar Oatmeal: Tastes delicious! Seriously. Although my sister complains that its a bit sweet, add a bit more water into it then! I hate hate hate oatmeal but maybe because I never got the right one… I seriously have cravings for this.  I usually eat two eggs for breakfast, drink some coffee but this makes me feel already full. It does have quite a bit of sugar though…. but it does decent on the other vitamins. Plus, it’s low in calories!  Bubbling after boiling water is poured into it, in about three or four minutes – it’ll be done and perfect! For Lunch, I have one Pita Bread & the Dip. This tastes better than the oatmeal (well, of course) and thanks to the oatmeal – …
