Favorite Coffee Shops in Southern California

I became a coffee lover. Growing up, I was the kind of girl who will only drink tea. When I do drink coffee, I used to add about 5 packs of sugar, and a lot of vanilla creamer. I couldn’t stand the bitter taste, and if I drink any coffee with less sugar or cream, I become extremely hyper – drove my friends crazy. During my undergrad, coffee was the only thing that kept me awake during class. Now, I can drink coffee black without getting hyper. My favorite types of coffee would have to be an Caffè Americano, Kyoto-style Cold Brew, Vanilla Latte, and Caffè Latte. Here are a couple of my favorite places to grab coffee in Los Angeles County, and Orange County.img_0467

First up, Hideout Cafe in Rowland Heights, CA. This is an Asian Cafe that sells drinks from coffee to boba milk teas. My favorite drink at Hideout is their Tiramisu Latte (hot) because it’s not that often when I find a Tiramisu Latte on a menu. I also like their rice dishes and waffle dessert. The atmosphere can be loud because a lot of high school students likes to hang out there and study. I went to Hideout on a Sunday once when it opened, and it was nice and peaceful. But after about 30 minutes, it started getting pack with students. I don’t really like going back there for that reason, and would only grab it to-go now.

On Saturday July 22, 2017, I went to 626 Night Market located at the Santa Anita Race Track in Arcadia, CA. 626 Night Market is an event held every summer with hundreds of vendors – food, entertainment, arts, crafts, and merchandise. Admission is $5 (cash only), and all vendors only take cash. If you don’t have cash, there are ATM machines throughout the site.

Boston 2017 Photo Diary

Here are some of my favorite photos from our trip to Boston, Massachusetts. It was my sister and I first time in the east coast, and it was an amazing experience. We stayed with our Aunt who was more than happy to give us a tour around Boston. I fell in love with the city and would visit again. I visited the week of April 17 to April 22. The weather ranged between 48 to 52 degrees Fahrenheit. As a person who grew up in California her entire life, I am never complaining about California’s ‘cold’ weather ever again.
