This may warrant a field trip to NY for some research. :)
Chanel got a prominent architect, Zaha Hadid, to make this crazy cool structure to house the artwork created by 15 contemporary artists who were inspired by Chanel’s classic 2.55 quilted-style chain handbag.
The grand re-opening of Sharkeez tomorrow night may be the perfect excuse to visit beautiful Hermosa Beach. A fun place if you're looking for a "young, high energy, beach dive bar" scene, it burned to the ground in 2006 and to the delight of beach bums and locals, it's back! I assume that it's going to get pretty busy tomorrow night at the opening, but the nice thing about Hermosa is that there are many other options along the pier. If you've never… Continue

I just love this idea! The SF Zoo is connecting with their audience by putting up signs around bus stations or the zoo where people can take pictures and then post them online. Check out their site to see more pictures or find a location around SF.…
First things first. No, I haven't gotten the new Apple iPhone 3G. (Cue sad face) :(
I still have my old iPhone (but have hopes of getting the new 3G, one day). But, can I just say that the new apps frickin rock my world?! I've only tried out three so far - the Yelp, Facebook and Typepad apps but have heard really good things about so many others. Derrick told me he's heard good things about Urban Spoon and I can't wait to try out… Continue
At the Juxtapoz exhibit, there were a few paintings that literally stopped me in my tracks. One of them was of this girl. Up close...her mascara running, the expression in her face, the latex glove on her hand were so beautiful, so intriguing.
So I looked the artist of this painting up… Continue
So one of my best friends from high school, Alice N is visiting from Singapore where she's been living and working for the past five years. She was craving some Mexican food and we didn't want El Cholo (though that place is good) so we decided to hit up this place called… Continue
As Annie and I were driving around to look for a place to eat in Downtown Vancouver a few months ago, we spotted this hotdog cart with a huge line. The sign on the cart said "Japadog". Could these Japadogs put the infamous LA bacon-wrapped we know and love to shame? And so the love affair began.
The Menu: The Terimayo ($4.25) is the most popular. An all-beef dog, grilled and topped with nori… Continue
Eugene and Annie introduced me to this drink this morning called the Mucho Mango.
Has anyone tried this? It's freakin delicious! Not too sweet, it's a tea and mango slushy drink - so refreshing. OMG OMG OMG. The McDs iced coffee has now been replaced! This has been around since May… Continue
My previous experience of Long Beach has been limited to hanging out on the beach and checking out the local bar scene. I definitely would have never expected to walk into this gem of a boutique. Maison Femme is a great little shop on 2nd street that seriously makes you feel like you've just walked into a store on the Champs-Elysées.
They carry French brand body creams and fragrances, jewelry, baby clothes, chic furniture, to die for… Continue
Chaya Venice is an upscale Asian fusion restaurant with high quality food. Their happy hour is daily between 5pm-7pm and on Sunday from 5pm-10pm. I would recommend trying the fried calamari, spicy tuna tartar, albacore sashimi salad, and the spicy tuna roll. For the price, this happy hour is definitely worth checking out.
Happy Hour Menu - Everything is $4-$5
Spicy Shrimp… Continue
Okonomiyaki (お好み焼き) is a Japanese dish consisting of a pan-fried batter cake and various ingredients. Okonomi means "what you like" or "what you want", and yaki means "grilled" or "cooked" (cf. yakitori and yakisoba); thus, the name of this dish means "cook what you like". In Japan, okonomiyaki is mainly associated with Kansai or Hiroshima areas, but is widely available throughout the country. Toppings and batters tend to vary according to region.
In our endless quest to find the perfect fro-yo, we're whisked to Yogurtland by our good friends Derrick and Jewelz. After PinkBerry, Cantaloop, and Red Mango you'd think we'd just throw our hands up and surrender. You… Continue
