Hi all!

There are just so much going on with life, I’m not even gonna try to explain.

Promise me you will try these chips if you can find them. They are so good, I was dangerously close to finishing a big bag in one sitting. It’s not as spicy as I expected but still really good and addicting! Even if you don’t like Lays’ thinness, you may like the flavor of this one if you like spicy stuff.


Spent a Saturday morning in Berkeley with interesting sights like this one:

Tasty Pot in Berkeley makes the best individual hot pot I’ve had!  I have yet to try Boiling Point but I really want to.img_4558

I’ve been spinning again. I find that it really helps with my running and is my favorite cardio cross-training. I’m not training for any races now but I want to regain some fitness I lost over past several months!  Here we go. 

But it’s always hard for me to go to a studio/gym. There’s so much time wasted in driving to/from the place and I’d rather spend that time running. It’s the easiest for me physically and mentally. That’s why I can’t stick to any other workouts.  With running, I don’t need to think about it. I just change and go. The world is my gym! 

Let me rant for a minute about taking public transportation to work.  

Usually the Muni line I take is pretty good and reliable. It’s almost always on time and people riding it during rush hour are mostly working professionals.  But at my Muni station, the escalator has been out of service for two weeks. During the morning rush hour, there’s a LINE to go up the stairs.  Since both sides of escalators are down, everyone has to use the stairs. And some people are naturally slow with going up the stairs but the faster people can’t pass the slower persons since we have to go up in single files. 

Ugh, if they can’t fix the escalators in two weeks, when will they ever fix them?

And to end the post on a positive note, let’s talk more food.  I had an amazing burger at Grand Tavern in Oakland past weekend ❤️ I hadn’t had one in a while so it hit the spot. 

And today I discovered a hidden gem of a Vietnamese food in SF. It has some dishes that you don’t normally see.  It’s a scary walk to get there but I think it’s worth the risk 😉 Go at your own risk though. Pictured here are Bun Mam, Hu Tieu, and Banh Mi Xiu Mai. I miss the food in Vietnam!


It’s almost end of March. It is true when people say time passes by faster when you’re old.  They aren’t just making small talks, it’s actually true!


I was just looking through my Instagram pics and realized that I sort of have a green theme going on. Kind of sort of 🙂


Happy St. Patrick’s Day! 

It is probably too late to say this now because it’s almost 9pm, but stay out of trouble, folks 😏

Try the Meditarranean hummus from Trader Joe’s.  I promise you there is so much going on in this little tub.  


Drizzle some olive oil and sprinkle a little of paprika to make it even better.

I used to make my own hummus but now I admit I’m lazy and buy from trader joes or get the Sabra’s hummus from Safeway. I swear they skin the chickpeas before blending. It’s so freaking smooth.  I like to eat hummus with tortilla or pita chips, Persian cucumbers, or make hummus wraps.

I got around to making some jewelry again… It’s been a few months since I made something due to major lack of inspirations lately.

Hope you had a nice weekend 😊
