I was in Vegas for a bachelorette party for my girl friend.  I didn’t take many photos but I did take a lot of selfies on this trip 😁 Here are some snap shots.  

Corgi slot. I didn’t get a chance to play this but it looks cute.


Mirror selfie while in line at Bachannal Buffet. I’ve had brunch here a few times already so next time I’m definitely trying their dinner buffet.

Good seafood selection at the buffet. I had several plates of these and half dozen of oyster shooters.  Enough seafood for me for a few weeks 😀


Later in the day, we went to dinner at Julian Serrano which has pretty amazing tapas.


Lobster paella was so good. img_5723

And we ended the night at Omnia night club. We grandmas went back to hotel after midnight. Everyone was pooped!

I can’t believe how different the club scenes are nowadays. I can’t say for the clubs in SF since I haven’t been to one in many years. But the Vegas clubs are all about the light show, confetti, fake fog and wind effects, some special equipment for effects (here at Omnia the chandelier was moving up and down in spiral), EDM, and world’s top DJs.  Disco lights and hip-hop are out.  It’s a really different vibe now.

Now I’m under the weather from the weekend and must rest. Good night!

Too cute to eat!


Down for over a month 😑 seriously.


Succulents growing bigger than ever after a rain!


A few weekends ago, I went on a little hike in the Marin Headlands (north of San Framcisco.)  I had been to certain parts of the Marin but not this.   

One of my bros was visiting from out of country so it was nice catching up 🙂 even though I saw him back in January in Singapore.

I really like the idea of “nature walks” aka hiking.  I don’t think I can do this alone because I would lose patience and start running only because it’d be done faster. But as a family outting, it was fun to chitchat, walk, and get lost in the scenery.


Then the following weekend, I went to Berkeley’s Tilden park to watch a trail race.  

I love the energy of a trail race. It’s much more intimate than a normal road race.  

While the race was happening, I walked around alone. I didn’t think I could walk alone for long but I did.  I didn’t run since I was running a half marathon a day after in SF.  I wandered around Lake Anza. It’s probably a one-mile lap but involved some climbing on the tree roots by the water to complete a loop. 

# no filter.  Everything was so GREEN. El Niño, you are amazing. It was so serene and not a soul in sight.


Some parts of the lake had 50 shades of green since its spring! ☘

But we are still in a drought…


And this is pretty cool. If I ran 100 miles, maybe I’d want to put these on my bumper too. I don’t care if people think I’m a nerd.

Then I saw V finish his race. I was inspired to do more trail running.


Or any kind of sweating will do.  Spinning has been fun. I don’t think I can make it a part of my weekly routine but I’ll try to enjoy it whenever I can make it there. Good music and lots of sweat = good endorphins = happy Jess.


I should end the post with something food related 😁 I made a poke bowl at home and it’s so good. Chop up some sushi-grade tuna (I used half pound here) and toss them in soy sauce, teriyaki sauce, and hot sauce. Serve over rice with any toppings you like! So easy.
