Disneyland + theme park essentials

Last week, My sister and I went to Disneyland with our aunt and little cousins. It was their first time ever at Disneyland, so they wanted us to take them around the park. We arrived at the park around 9 a.m. and there was already a lot of people lining up to get into either Disneyland Park and Disneyland California. Summertime, is one of the busiest time of the year at Disneyland since it’s summer vacation, so arrive early because you can spend some time getting parking, going through bag-check, and riding the tram/shuttle to the park.7589867184_img_0363

Anime Expo 2018 Photo Diary

On July 5-8, Anime Expo 2018 (AX18) welcomes anime and manga fans to the Los Angeles Convention Center in California. This is my 9th year attending Anime Expo, as well as my 3rd year volunteering with the Press Relations department. Although, I had a very busy schedule, I was still able to cosplay on day 1, and shop in the exhibit hall before noon each day. I felt like I barely slept throughout the 4-day event, so it was very tough going back to work on Monday. Here are some photos I’ve taken at AX18:

Little Tokyo, Los Angeles CA: Ramen + Matcha Soft Serve Ice Cream

Happy Holidays! On Christmas Eve, I headed to Little Tokyo in Downtown Los Angeles for ramen and ice cream while catching up with some high school friends. We went to Ramen Maruya located in the Japanese Village. This is one of my favorite restaurants for ramen, and there is never a long wait around noon. I ordered their spicy tonkotsu ramen. Toppings includes thinly sliced pork charshu, boiled egg, bean sprouts, nori, green onions, and spicy sauce.

A Great Thanksgiving + Black Friday

Last week, I had a great Thanksgiving lunch/dinner. Growing up in a traditional Asian family household, I’ve never really had a traditional Thanksgiving dinner. Since graduating, I was able to experience it during my company’s Thanksgiving Luncheon. It was a traditional Thanksgiving meal with turkey, ham, roast beef, mash potatoes, stuffing, mac & cheese, cranberry sauce, and pumpkin pie (my favorite).

A Walk Around Campus

On Sunday, we took our dog Chibi to our university campus. We thought it would be nice to give him an extra-long outing, and a bath before Thanksgiving. Chibi is a 4-year-old Maltese, and he’s very photogenic. Of course, during the walk, my sister Wendy, her boyfriend Danny (travelingwithtech.com) and I, had our phones and film cameras ready to take photos of him and the campus.

Umaru-Chan Cosplay + Chicken & Beer for Halloween

Super late post, but better late than never. Two weeks ago, my friend asked my sister and I to come over for a small Halloween party – mainly just eating and watching movies while her parents gave out candies to the trick or treaters. I dressed up as Umaru-Chan from the anime Himouto! Umaru-Chan – yes, I even brought the plush with me. But, I did have to opt out the wig because it was heavy, and I didn’t want a headache. I will be cosplaying as Umaru-chan for upcoming conventions in January.
