I try anything new given the chance- usually I get more hits than misses. Which is the case for the Shizuoka cola: You can find this guy in most of the Japanese markets. And last week I found out that I still remember how to fold a crane: Farewell!
If anyone's a fan of Gudetama (ぐでたま) you should go to any of the Californian "Curry House"- there's a special Gudetama meal set going on until January for fans... or even or non-fans who just want a nice meal set. It's around $30 for dessert, soup, salad, meal, drink, and beanie (the placemat can also be taken- my sister took one). It's first-come first-serve so it's best to go during odd days or early hours. Farewell!
I think this would be the fifth time ever taking the rail or Metro. There's a Metro stop right next to our school so I always wanted to take it to go to downtown L.A. or to Little Tokyo and Chinatown. I can't promise there won't be a few people acting crazier than the norm, but it was fun riding and seeing outside the window. Farewell!
I went to the Borderlands exhibition at the JANM, and it was definitely a fun trip. Everyone should check it out since it's a merging of different cultures, and to see the art that comes with such a blend is exciting. They also let you write down your home to stick onto the wall. This is awesome graphite work. Farewell!
I'm really looking forward to the completion of the Metro alongside Wilshire since I commute a lot to places all over and outside L.A. That's the view currently with the construction involving the Metro in Little Tokyo. It seems like it's going to be a while until it's finished, but at least it's happening and the process gives some interesting photos.
If anyone is looking to give an awesome gift for a cook you should consider gifting them the Hello Kitty Spam Musubi Kit: Luckily it's available at the Sanrio store in Little Tokyo... although I don't know how many are left now. There's also a cute shop at Hauser & Wirth... can't really miss it: Everyone should check it out after checking on the chickens next door. There are also vegetables at times growing although they vary, as sometimes I see tomatoes and at other times I
I saw the Mike Kelley exhibition at downtown L.A. recently... quite an experience. It had a lot of odd crystal and glass sculptures of cities, as well as huge sculptures: I advise walking slowly as most of the rooms are dark and the base of the sculptures sometimes blend into the ground. Farewell!
If you ever go visit the Arts District in downtown make sure to go visit the chickens at "Hauser & Wirth" if you're an animal-lover. The head chicken's name is Minerva- but I sometimes have trouble spotting her: The chickens are in all different colors and feather designs. They all seem to get along too. Currently in the hallway exiting the area you'll spot hanging underwear: They first looked like simple lamp shades until we got closer. Farewell!
Yesterday I went to Little Tokyo."Demitasse" is a great place where I finish my sketches or chat with friends whenever I'm in the area. Their hot chocolate is lovely because they actually melt the chocolate pieces in front of you and instill lavender flavoring- might not be the typical hot chocolate, but it's fun to just to even look at: It's an old photo, but the drink looks the same. I tried their newer drink, Ice Minty Cubano, and it tasted a lot like the drink at "Philz C
I usually go to the Silverlake area to look at the dogs inside the park- usually you'll see a variety and occasionally a Corgi- a definite Instagram-worthy dog, as my twin and I tell each other. Aside from dog-watching there's a variety of places in the area great for eating... which brings us to Sqirl: Above is an avocado toast and a ricotta toast (with rainbow spread). The rainbow spread was plum, peach and strawberry. The avocado toast tasted like a taco to me... which is
