Happy Birth-Month to Me!

As July comes to an end, I just wanted to thank everyone that greeted me in-person, or through call/text/email, greetings and picture collages on FB and IG, and especially everyone that was kind-hearted enough to go out of their way to get me a present. I LOVE IT ALL!

SoCal Eats – PokiNometry and PopBar

IMG_5570

EJ and I love to eat!  My brother, Alex, too! So when he told me about this place in Anaheim that sells “poke bowls,” I was sold. He texted me a picture of his order and I had to have it. When we got to Anaheim for my birthday weekend, PokiNometry was our first stop. I thought my order was delicious and next time I could go for a large instead. I love seafood, and sashimi, which is what this is very similar to. I can’t wait to go again!

On our last park day, we just relaxed and did whatever else we didn’t get a chance to do the first two days. We got most of the stuff we really wanted to do while we were with Dianne.

Disneyland 2014 – Day Two: Breakfast with Celebrities

Click HERE for Day One of our Disneyland 2014 adventure =)

On the second day of our Disneyland weekend, I made reservations at the Plaza Inn for breakfast. I’ve done character dining at Goofy’s Kitchen in the Disneyland Hotel, but this was my first time at the Plaza Inn. I love it! Goofy’s Kitchen has a larger variety of buffet, but Plaza Inn had more characters, is cheaper, and is located inside the park. I love both, but I thought Plaza Inn was more convenient for us that weekend. Continue reading

Disneyland 2014 – Day One: My Birthday

DSC_5698

This year for my birthday, my husband surprised me with a trip to Disneyland! I haven’t been to there during summer in a while. We normally like to go in November when the weather is cooler and the holiday decorations are up. Kids are usually also in school at that time, so it’s not as crowded as it normally would be.

Maui – Food Trip

One of the first things I do when I plan for a vacation is to look for local places to eat. EJ and I love to try new foods, and Maui definitely provided us with lots of opportunities for that. Read on to see what we ate, and here are links to the other posts in the Maui Series:
Maui – To Do and See

Maui – To Do and See

DSC_4626

For our Second Anniversary, my husband and I decided to go to Maui. (Actually, it was my choice since he chose to go to Walt Disney World for our First Anniversary last year.) We’ve both been to Oahu, separately, so we figured Maui would be a different place we could travel to together so we could relax and not have too much to plan.

This morning, Sandy (my coworker) and I decided last minute to eat out for breakfast. We used to do this regularly before we got married, but now it’s just left to spontaneous urges. I told her I wanted to try the noodle place she took our other coworker to last time. So, off to Chinatown we went!

Mommy and Me Vacation to Wisconsin

IMG_7987
Before I got married, 2009 was the year I asked my mom if she wanted to go back to visit our family in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. My mom moved there from the Philippines with her family in the 70s. She wasn’t married at the time, but she went back to the Philippines to marry my dad, and she petitioned him, and they started their family out there.

Bay Area Sites and Treats!

The Kitchen Sink from SF Creamery in Walnut Creek, CA

With many of our friends and family flying in next week, they’ve been asking what there is to do while they’re here. I thought I would just compile a generic list for everyone. Whether you’re a local, have visited here many times, or are a first-time Bay Area visitor, I’m sure everyone will be able to find something on this list to try out. Enjoy!
