Happy Halloween guys! Hope you guys will have a great night either trick or treating or having a lit Halloween party (insert fire emoticon here LOL). To be honest though, I’m not really a fan of Halloween. The last time I trick or treated was back when I was 6 years old. After some incident, I never went trick or treating again. Also I’m not a huge fan of chocolates and candies. I mean I do eat them occasionally but I realized I’m not into sweets. But even though I’m not into the Halloween spirit, there’s one thing I look forward to every year and that is pumpkin carving.
Few Saturdays ago, I had a Girls Day Out (GDO) with my church friends and we went to The Broad museum. It’s been a very long time since we all hung out together on a Saturday. We always hung out on Sundays after church but we never went to fun places such as The Broad. For me, I’ve actually been there three times now but since some of my friends never went to the place, I thought it would be great to check out The Broad.
“Why would you want to go to pop up museums when you can go hiking and appreciate Mother Nature.” My coworker’s eyes were full of silent judgement that was making a hole in my head when I told him that I was going to The Pizza Experience. It’s a pop up museum solely dedicated to pizza. I laughed and replied “Well yes hiking is fun too but it’s more fun to take photos of these rooms than nature. Also pop up museums is what makes life and Los Angeles more enjoyable.”
“NOOO! Don’t trash it!” I vividly remember begging my mom not to trash our old vacuum cleaner as I clung onto it as if my life depended on it. I was only two years old back then but I had a really strong attachment to it. The dingy old vacuum cleaner was one of the few friends I had during that time. I was the only child and I kept myself entertained by befriending with inanimate objects that can’t talk and have no soul. But in the eyes of a two year old, these objects were able to talk to me about their life and feelings. And the thought of me being separated with them tore me apart. But… in the end, my mom succeeded in throwing away the vacuum cleaner and I cried the whole day until my mom bought me a huge teddy bear to make it up to me. My dear old friend disappeared from my mind and I continued my life as a two year old.
Hey guys, sorry for not posting for such a long time. Life has been a little rough for me right now but I’m back! I’ll try to post more often and I will soon be uploading a post of where this blog will go. But anyways, today’s focus is about Vitality and Verve III: Transforming the Urban Landscape.
I never thought I was a cat person. When I was younger, I thought cats looked creepy with their slit pupils and their creeper tendencies. I didn’t like them. At all. However, that all changed when I got my first cat. It was back in 2013 when I was working at Sweet Factory and I saw on my Instagram that an acquaintance of mine (my mom’s friend’s daughter) was looking for someone to take in her cat. Even though I didn’t like cats, her cat looked really adorable in the photo. For a few days, I was contemplating if I should get the cat or not. I’m the only child and I could get lonely sometimes. Also, I wanted my dad to have a pet to keep him company. So after a lot of thinking, I decided to take in the cat.
This past Memorial Day weekend, I went to two different art galleries. The first one is Beyond the Streets, which you could read more about here, and the second is the We Rise pop art gallery. Okay so I went to Beyond the Streets with my friend last Saturday while I went to We Rise by myself the next day. I honestly had no idea both art galleries were on the same street, just two or three blocks away from each other. If I had known I would’ve went to We Rise also with my friend on Saturday. But anyways, my coworker told me about We Rise and said I should go check it out. I wasn’t planning to go since I had to drive to LA again but I decided last minute on Sunday to go but I’m honestly glad that I went. Out of the two art galleries I went, I was able to connect with We Rise more.
