Exploring the Arts District

June 28th, 2010 · 1 Comment · los angeles

I had one of those delicious Saturdays where good food, good friends and a little exploring aligned for a delicious afternoon. The boyfriend and I met up with some of our friends at Wurstkuche where I had the tastiest sausage sandwich in my life.  I ordered the Filipino Maharlika, sweet pork sausage with natural seasonings […]

Urban Masterpieces: LA Freewalls

June 27th, 2010 · 4 Comments · los angeles

Thought I’d share a few images I took of  some jaw-dropping street art I came across while out having lunch with some friends on Saturday. It was hard to miss a giant octopus overtaking a fiery sunken ship or the apocalyptic scene of dark invaders or, my favorite, the grotesque and yet cute gang of […]

Dark whimsy

June 24th, 2010 · 6 Comments · los angeles

{image by amongtheseclouds via Flickr} Thanks to my boyfriend, within the last couple years I’ve come to appreciate the dark whimsical world of Tim Burton’s films. The man’s got style! I got re-acquainted with Pee Wee’s Big Adventure, of all places, in a Hollywood cemetery last summer. Then a couple weeks ago we loaded up […]

PDUB Productions documents Historic Filipinotown

September 22nd, 2009 · No Comments · Uncategorized

As a reporter and  a Filipina this is pretty neat – I’ve come across a media project that’s documenting the Filipino community in Los Angeles.  Every time I drive down the 101 Freeway the small sign always catches my eye – Historic Filipinotown. What is that? I ask myself every time. To highlight the area, […]

Being creepy can be fun

September 15th, 2009 · 1 Comment · Uncategorized

There’s nothing like catching an awesome 80s movie on a vast green field, with a great picnic spread, and  2,000 other like-minded souls. But it’s definitely not as mainstream as it sounds -I caught Cinespia’s screening of “Pee-wee’s Big Adventure” at Hollywood Forever, a cemetery that’s gregariously Hollywood with it’s large obelisk monuments and headstone […]

A walk through Whitley Heights

September 8th, 2009 · 1 Comment · Uncategorized

Can’t tell you how many times I’ve driven past Whitley while driving on Franklin. This less famous street is overshadowed by Hollywood Blvd. home to the Walk of Fame just a couple blocks away. If only those tourists knew where this road leads… After walking up this beast of a hill it’s nothing but tile […]

Milkshake madness

August 14th, 2009 · No Comments · Uncategorized

What’s my favorite milk shake in the whole wide world? Without missing a beat, the answer is Lucky Devils toasted pecan shake. It’s soooo good that it’s gone before my entree is put in front of me. The drink is sweet, creamy, and toasty.  It’s a paradox how something can be so warm in flavor […]

Style file: Winnie Couture – Oh so lovely!

July 16th, 2009 · No Comments · Uncategorized

So one of my loves in life is fashion. I’m no fashionista but I can’t resist looking at pretty dresses, pining away for well-constructed designer shoes, or judging people who buy ugly overpriced luxury brand jeans. (That’s harsh I know, but I won’t lie!) As I was browsing a few fashion Web sites today I […]

Andrew Bird at the Greek Theatre

July 13th, 2009 · No Comments · Uncategorized

Went to see Andrew Bird on Friday after Boyfriend Dave’s co-worker wasn’t able to go at the last minute. So we got the tickets free! This venue is incredible. It’s a quarter the size of the Hollywood Bowl with a mountain-top feel. The trees, the open air, and the stars – couldn’t ask for a […]
