US Trip December 2016- LA Day 3: Disneyland Park Anaheim

Disneyland. Also known as the “Happiest place on Earth”. But it’s nothing like that for us on the first day. It started off well enough. We drove and parked the car before hopping on a shuttle bus to take us in. The bus was comfortably filled and off we go! Just looking at these pictures… Continue reading US Trip December 2016- LA Day 3: Disneyland Park Anaheim

US Trip December 2016- LA Day 1 & 2: The Last Bookstore, Koreatown, Orange outlet

We took the domestic flight from San Francisco to Los Angeles which was about an hour. Do note that for every check-in luggage, there’s a charge of US$25. Had we known it’d cost so much more, we probably would’ve taken the overnight bus. The domestic flight costs about US$98 per person.

US Trip December 2016- San Francisco Day 2: Farmer’s Market

I came to two realizations on this day. Realization No. 1: I finally understood why everyone drives in America. If you ever go to America with an elderly, a 5 year old kid and it’s your first time there, it’s better to just drive. If you can’t drive, try to take Uber. The location pinpoint… Continue reading US Trip December 2016- San Francisco Day 2: Farmer’s Market

Rose Cake with buttercream frosting & pistachios
