Life Lately - Shots & Shar

March 26, 2017

My baby succulents are thriving really well in the shot glasses! Here's a photo of one growing through the soil :) It's pretty exciting watching them grow!

(I look horrendous in these photos, sorry, ahaha. I think it's the angle wa wa waaa)

Back in my high school days, I was on Livejournal and got to know so many lovely people. Shar was one of them - we've been friends for around eight years now. She was living in Singapore but recently moved to Arizona; she and her husband (whose name also happens to be Chris) were in town so we met up in Pasadena. We had a lovely lunch at Lunasia Dim Sum (Asian places, I tell you - already so packed even before noon) and just talked about life. I'm gonna have to drag mine and Chris' butts over to Arizona to visit her one of these days.

I'm still so psyched we finally met because she was living on the other side of the world when we first became Livejournal friends! She's actually the second friend from Livejournal I met in person - I met up with Corrin and her boyfriend, Peter, last November when they came to visit Santa Barbara from Florida. Meeting friends I've made through the blogging community almost feels like just catching up with friends whom I haven't seen in a while.

Anyways, how's your Sunday going?

Slapfish: A Lobster Tale

March 21, 2017

If you know me, you would know that I love going to "hipster" places and I also absolutely love lobster. So it was a blessing in disguise when I came across Slapfish through my Yelp account.

Chris and I went to the Brea location. When we walked in, we were expecting it to be a lot like a previous lobster sandwich place we visited where there portions were small - so with that in mind, we ordered quite a bit.


From top to bottom, the lobster taquitos, chowder toast (these were free by checking in on Yelp!), Chris got the clobster grilled cheese with the chowder fries, and I got the lobster grinder! The portions were generally bigger than what we had expected, so that was great. The lobster taquitos were really good! You could taste the lobster and feel the Mexican kick to it.

Yay, look at us happy lobster-eating folks!

We spent $40 in all! Compared to other places, that's a really good price for those bottom-feeding lobsters. We found out as we were putting away our trash that they had several bottles of spices and sauces to choose from and they used "craft soda" for their beverages (we got water when we went). Rate 10/10 will definitely come back again - this may be completely biased because I love this places like this and I love lobster.
