Enjoying Two of Our Favorites

We went back to the condo in West LA to clean up and return keys to landlord. Spending only one night made us miss it enough.

While cleaners working, we walked around the neighborhood one last time.


Since yesterday, I get hungry all the time maybe because I lift, move stuff, climb up and down stairs etc.

Asked him buy me the Combo for the last time. I wanted the whole thing, but had to share with him 😦

Burger and Sausage together. Delicious 🙂

I will miss this beautiful Catholic church that we’ve seen every day.

Loved Rancho Park, Los Angeles so much

Cleaning done. While waiting for the landlord, we went to another favorite place for lunch.

Siam Chan!

His favorite: Yum Woon Sen

Pad Thai
We usually don’t have it, but I felt I needed sugar today. So hungry 😛

Got back to the new home in the evening. Hungry again.

We had Trader Joe’s Asian Salad and Enchiladas for dinner.

This one is pretty good.

Beer & BBQ After 8 Hour-Moving

Good-bye to condo where we lived last 4 years. Loved the neighborhood close to relatively everywhere like Santa Monica, Beverly Hills, Culver City, West Hollywood, Miracle Mile…even not so far to Downtown. We will miss it so much.

Ok, moving…This was not expected at all. It took us 8 hours to move 20 miles. Three movers worked through without lunch break. We felt so bad for them as well as got so exhausted and starved ourselves.

A few minutes passed 5pm, we ran to a Korean All-You-Can-Eat BBQ place.

Best beer ever after the hard work! I had Shocktop and he had Gen Blondie.

Ordered 3 kinds of meat but they brought steak first. People! We are hungry!!! Please bring something to be cooked quickly.

Waited for 5-10 minutes

till this. Now realized no dipping sauce on the table.

Waited another 2 minutes for this.

So many items to choose

Marinated Short Rib
I forgot to take pictures, but we had brisket and beef tongue too.

Meat & Kimchi on Rice Paper

Pork Belly

Very fatty.


Bulgogi and Kimchi on Dikon

All-You-Can-Eat BBQ Dinner: $20.99 + Draft $5.95 x 2

He got dessert too. I didn’t like it. Macaroon was unpleasant texture. It’s too dry or something.

Fish Soup Noodle @ Huong Vi

He gave me a ride to work on the way to the new place today where he spent a day working as well as setting up internet etc.

I had 1/3 sandwich for breakfast and rest for lunch.

This is breakfast with coffee.

For the first time, I went to my favorite Vietnamese restaurant, Huong Vi with my husband.

Fish Soup Noodle

Of course, I called earlier to reserve this Friday Special.
