L.A. keeps getting better by the minute. With so many pop ups, galleries, museums to new restaurants and apparently, a slide built on top of the 57th floor at the OUE Skyspace L.A.; It’s really really tough to get bored out here. Yes, the view and the slide comes with a price but, I appreciate […]

The Difference between Los Angeles vs. Orange County, California.

A few days ago, I was having lunch with some of my co-workers and the topic about living in L.A. vs O.C. came up.

The same pothole on the road.

Last week was the first time I realized that I no longer needed to use my Waze App to help me find my direction to work. I even remembered to dodge a pothole on the road which was the same pothole that made me cringed each time I ran over it. My poor tires! After […]
