Oakland, CA: 21hrs


I had a 21hr layover on Christmas eve in Okland, CA. The Marriott hotel I stayed at was great! Awesome breakfast served and amazing location. Right in front of a huge shopping plaza. Great variety of stores all the way from H&M to J.Crew. So I was away from my loved ones so what's the best remedy to cheer me up during such a special time in which I'm not next to loved ones?! Yeap u got it, SHOPPING!

I got a few things at H&M and nice patterned tights at Express. I like the few items I purchased. But I love a few goodies I got at J.Crew:


Gold tone bangles
Pink wide and thin bangles
<3 I'm in LOVE!

San Francisco: 23hrs

I had a 23 hr layover in San Francisco this past Sunday, and of course I had to step out of the hotel. I walked a few blocks from the hotel to Chinatown to have Dim sum at City View Restaurant. Everything I had was great!
Scallop dumplings, Eggplant filled with shrimps and tofu
Yellow bean buns,Pork steamed dumplings and shrimp and rice dumplings.

Stopped in front of a house to take pic. hehe
A church I passed by when i was on my way to Fisherman Wharfs.
Statue Tutankhamun and the Golden Age of the Pharaohs at Fisherman Wharfs.

Me, with a churro and some candy.Photobucket Had such a good time! Can't wait till I get another long layover there!

Spotted such a great Burger!

My "4-ever Crush" and I , went to The Spotted Pig in the West Village,NYC last week. I have nothing but praises for April Bloomfield’s gastropub. My BF had heard about this restaurant a while back so we decided to go. He wanted to try the burger and so did I. Especially since I was craving a juicy burger for a week prior to entering what i would now like to declare, "The burger heaven". The simple, yet tasty burger which didn't need any lettuce, onion nor tomato to burst out an explosion of extreme tastiness was superb! The shoestring fries with a hint of garlic were the best combination. The service was great. Our waitress was right on point, very attentive. my BF and I were so pleased with it all. We did become curious after reading a menu of specials of the day on a side chalk board. But that didn't restrain us from our initial decision, the burger. That curiosity will soon lead us to multiple future visits to The Spotted Pig.


Merry X-mas!

I know I know,What a bad blogger I am. Three weeks without posting. I have been having a few issues with my electronic belongings (cell and laptop). Also December is such a busy if not the busiest month in the Aviation industry which equals me having extra flights to operate. Not to mention being away from loved ones for the holidays, but I'm not going to get into that (tears, lots of tears). LOL So since I have been gone I do have a few things I want to share. Better late than never, right?

Starting with my tiny and according to my "4-ever Crush" anorexic X-mas tree:


Merry X-mas! Best wishes!

Cute to boot and Thai food night!


I went to a Thai restaurant with my 4ver crush last night, SEA Thai Bistro (the Williams burg location). Trendy, trendy and trendy!!. The decor is quiet impressive from what I was able to see. So we had Tup Tim fritters and green Papaya salad as appetizer. I really enjoyed the Tup Tim fritters and the sweet and sour sauce. I also had the Pad Thai as my entree and it was okay. I'm not yet an expert in Thai food but my significant other tried it and he was dissapointed. Anyhow I also had Thai iced tea, i wanted to get the whole experience HEHE. One thing they can modify is the volume of the music. It's not cute having to raise your voice to be able to speak to the person your dining with. Overall had such a great time!

Photobucket Here's a quick pic of the Pad Thai

P.S for those thinking > OMG look at her poor toes, they are not hurting in this pics, that's actually their structure (the index toes bone structure is higher than the rest of the toes). LOL

Dear Marinel

I'm so happy to be back in NY! Back in my old bedroom, with my doggie following me everywhere. Having the family near and being able to spend time with my significant other A.K.A "My 4ever Crush".

I'm now trying to organize myself and keep in mind a few things I have to take care of now that I'm finally in the Big juice apple!

This was before heading to the pharmacy to get a few things and before blow drying my hair, I know a bun didn't quiet cover the bad hair day!

Fashion ART!

Great piece of advice! This reminds me,I need a few jeans ASAP!!
Now, I came across Austrian photographer Bela Borsodi's work. He takes photographic styling to a new level. I had seen his work in various fashion magazines(most recent been Vogue, if I'm not mistaken) and didn't even know it. His visual sculptures momentarily fool the eye and put the focus on the union of the featured fashion and accessories. It's just brilliant, I love it!

To check out his work visit:
