5 Years Passed

Do you guys remember me posting about 5 year diary where you write one line a day for years?

Just end of 2018, I finally completed my first 5 year diary! It was quite a commitment to write something every single night but when you make this a routine it comes naturally. Because this is a routine now for me, I decided to do another one for next 5 years!

Found cheap one at Chapters for $10. Not a fan of the cover but can't complain when it's cheap.

One Line A Day 2014-2018

It's fun to read what I did on specific day for 5 year years. Here's some random days I'm sharing!

I realized Christmas season is especially the time for me to catch up on video games. My 25th is same of playing some kind of video game with my brothers until mid-night.

Try this out for next 5 years!
I've mentioned this to my previous post, you should totally try doing this when you have your new born baby and record what their first 5 years was like. Just looking back on my arts and crafts gives me so much inspiration and motivation to continue what I like doing!

Continuing from my last post, this is all about food!
Just FOOD!! Places I went to eat throughout my trip.

Some photos are pretty bad because of excitement eating first before taking picture of it.
Screw the photo! Food's gonna get cold!

Oh and also, you can click to Everything is Pixar to see food at Disney!



Nothing Bunt Cakes
Started my first breakfast in LA with Nothing Bunt Cakes.

No secret menu, just simple burger and fries. Fries were surprisingly not good!

Halo Top Creamery
Since we were there, might as well try all their freshly made cones.

- Peaches n'cream + Puffles
- Caramel Maciatto + Waffle Cone

Halo Top Creamery


El Chilito
This I don't have everyday so it was delicious! I got Manjo Juice, Mango Flower with Tajin Spices. I'm not good with spices so Tajin was a little too much for me.

El Chilito


Honeymee
Rushed to take photo cuz ice cream was melting already.
Great flavor, simple and clean.

Honeymee


Tsujita
Tsukemen is my favorite ramen. Dunking that noodle into salty-ass soup base, you can't go wrong with that! They also make really good runny egg that goes so well with the soup. Ordered with Iced Matcha.

Chinchikurin
This one was exciting one for me. I never had Hiroshima-style Okonomiyaki!

Chinchikurin

Chinchikurin: Hiroshima Okonomiyaki


The big difference is it comes with yakisoba layered with Okonomiyaki. And you have a choice of yakisoba to be soft or crunchy. We went for crunchy.

One of the main donut I wanted to try in LA, Creme Brulee donuts!
A square shaped donut injected with custard and then caramelized sugar torched on top.

The top layer cracks like Creme Brulee so you can enjoy the chewy dough with crunchy sugar. Ordered separately with fried chicken and you can enjoy the combination of sweet and salty meal!
