So after a real nice lunch at Tokyo 7-7, Sam and I decided to stroll around Culver City, checking out some of the new places opening up. On Culver there two joints coming in the mid to end of July. The first one is called Gyenari - a Korean restaurant and lounge that looks amazing. Decor was gorgeous. The owner was kind enough to let us take some pics. They're going to be a BBQ place - so bust out the febreeze and tie back that hair (you Koreans know… Continue

So after spending way too much on lunch the other day, I wanted to find something cheap and delicious in LA (you know, ease the guilt). After Yelping around, we found some awesome reviews on this hole-in-the-wall cafe called Tokyo 7-7. Two words really brought us to this little find...portuguese sausage. Oh… Continue
Easily one of the most expensive lunches, I have had - I am trying to justify this by thinking of it more as an "experience" than a meal. Tucked away on Melrose Place, next to the new Monique Lhuillier, Bastide closed down for a while and re-opened in September. I'd never been before but I was willing to try this place out for a few reasons:

La Paella is exquisite because they keep it simple, but excel in the essentials: the food, service, and the authentic Spanish feel. To start, I would recommend a glass of Sangria which is accompanied by complimentary bread, smooth garlic butter, and ground up olives. Next, decide which of the 31 hot or cold tapas to try as an appetizer. And then there's the paella. The paella is visually aesthetic with so many different colors and ingredients, but it… Continue

You have a lot of choices out there with social network sites. So first, I want to thank everyone in here for trusting in me, my brother or a friend, for joining the site without even seeing it.
Even with high expectations, "Wanted" kept me at the edge of my seat. Great casting, amazing action sequences, a witty script, and stunning visual effects, make this a must-see movie this summer. Next stop: WALL-E!!

This summer if there is one fashion trend that's probably going to whip through most of our closets...it'll probably be ombre long dresses. My sister, Grace, is the ultimate fashionista - I'm lucky enough to be able to "shop" in her closet - we've even devised our own "Netflix" where I can borrow a dress and bring it back in a week to change it out again for something else. Thank God for older sisters! :)

Last night, our good friend Vic, invited us to a Palm Centro & Verizon Wireless Launch Party at Elevate, the club in downtown LA. I've wanted to check out Elevate for a while now so I jumped at the chance to attend. Eugene, my brother, has gone there a few times and been really impressed with the place and I couldn't pass up checking out how Palm & Verizon threw a… Continue

Winston's is a small, low-key bar that isn't overly impressive but definitely has a lot of class. Used as a venue for the show Entourage, Winston's is so hard to spot from the street that it's almost like this place is a secret. Inside, the decor shoots for the classic 1920's American vibe and consists of black leather benches, ornate oil paintings, lots of small mirrors, and a small vintage crystal chandelier at the center of the bar. The bar can… Continue

The 50 mpg Tata Nano, aka the people's car, is a proposed car introduced by India's Tata Motors at the 9th annual Auto Expo on January 10, 2008 in New Delhi, India. With a $3000 price-tag, this snap- together car could be just what Indians need and can actually afford, (the middle class household income in India starts at $6000.) But when millions of these tiny little cars hit the streets, it could paralyze the… Continue
