So after the horrible mess that was Day 1 at Anime Expo, I enjoyed the rest of the convention. It was great hanging out with friends. I even got to spend time with a long-time online friend that lives all the way in New Jersey! I got to cosplay with my boyfriend for three out of … Continue reading Anime Expo 2017 Recap
I have a love/hate relationship with Anime Expo, and this year wasn't any different. It's one of the biggest anime conventions, which means it's the one con where I'll see many of my friends. However, that also means having to navigate through overly-crowded halls and excruciatingly long lines. Admittedly, I usually spend most of Anime Expo … Continue reading Dying at Anime Expo 2017 aka “LineCon 2017”
The early access for the Final Fantasy XIV Stormblood expansion finally went live last weekend. And to coincide with its release, a FFXIV-themed escape game was launched in Los Angeles.

While scrolling down my Instagram feed a few months ago, a photo of a wrestling ring inside a restaurant caught my eye. It was then that I found out about the Lucha Libre Taco Shop in San Diego.

The Hello Kitty Cafe Truck has been making its rounds throughout the country and a pop up container has been making its residence at the Irvine Spectrum Center this past year. Since I lack the same passion for Hello Kitty that many people hold (I'm more of a Pochacco girl), I never felt compelled to make … Continue reading Sanrio Sweets at the Hello Kitty Cafe
I eat out way more than I should, but with so many tasty food and drinks to try, I can't stop myself from indulging in a bit of gluttony. Not surprisingly, I look forward to the night markets during the summer time. On May 19-21, the OC Night Market made its way to Costa Mesa, where it appears … Continue reading Visit the OC Night Market this Summer!
Many of us can remember growing up with ice cream trucks driving by our neighborhoods or schools to serve us these cool treats on warm days. And if you're like me, you've grown up sampling different kinds of ice cream. Several "hip" ice cream shops have popped up in the past few years to capitalize on … Continue reading Satisfy Your Sweet Tooth at the Museum of Ice Cream
Now that the sun's out and the flowers are in bloom, it was time to venture out and admire the beauty of nature. Earlier this month, I visited the Angeles National Forest, near Arcadia. It is located in the San Gabriel Mountains. To access the hiking trails, you'll have to first drive up winding roads on the side … Continue reading Hiking in Angeles National Forest
Wrestlemania 33 proved to be a better show than the previous Wrestlemania, with moments like John Cena's proposal to Nikki Bella and The Undertaker's retirement. But the return of my favorite tag team of all time, The Hardy Boyz, was the greatest highlight of Wrestlemania 33 for me. As I've mentioned before in WWE Women’s Division: Then & … Continue reading Welcome Back, Hardy Boyz!
