If you’re reading this then I can assume you’re thinking about moving to Orange County for whatever reason it may be. In any case, Orange County a.k.a “OC”, is a great place to be. We have direct access to the beach, the mountains and everything else in between. I’ve lived here pretty much my whole life and every time I move away I always seem … Continue reading Thinking of Moving to Orange County? Here are Resources to Help You.
I’m sitting here letting the title of this post marinate for a little bit. I feel that we’re far from the crisis ending anytime soon but, I am hopeful. One day, when this ends and I am sure it will, I want to be ready for the things that I missed doing or took for granted before the crisis started. These are in no way … Continue reading First Thing I Will Do After the COVID-19 Crisis Ends.
I’m not going to sugar coat it, life is pretty grim around here in Orange County, California. People are being “furlough” left to right, hiring freeze is abundant, grocery stores rarely has any food in stock and the list goes on and on. When will it stop? Nobody knows, at least until we start seeing the number of people infected start dropping then things will … Continue reading Coping During My 2nd Week of “Stay At Home” Order.
How’s your first month of this year going so far? It seems for me it’s been on a roller coaster ride juggling between work and trying to fit in that travel life. I’m feeling like there never seem to be enough time which is why I’m looking forward to a much needed 3-Day weekend to hopefully, slow down and relax. Tomorrow we start off with … Continue reading MLK 3-Day Weekend. What Are You Up To?
This year travel wise was focused on visiting small towns in U.S.A. that I’ve never been to. It was an eye opener to see how many beautiful towns there are that I’ve yet to see in my own country. I learned that having a car will take you far. Renting a car when I visited Maryland was the best thing my mom and I could’ve … Continue reading The Best of 2019
So, no one is ever prepared (I think) when you meet a celebrity for the first time. It just doesn’t happen. The initial greeting is always awkward because there’s nothing you can say or do that would make it less weird. Unless, you meet celebrities all the time in your line of work or you’re famous yourself then this doesn’t apply to you. I’m sure … Continue reading The Reality of Meeting a Celebrity (video)
Coming from Milan, I’d like to say I know a thing or two about luxury fashion. Definitely, I’m no fashion connoisseur, though, I found ‘Couture Beyond’ exhibit happening now in Santa Ana quite fascinating. The Bower’s Museum is an art museum located in Orange County, California. Its permanent collections highlights Native American Art, pre-Columbian Mesoamerica, Asian, African and Oceania art and special exhibits such as … Continue reading ‘Couture Beyond’ Fashion Exhibit at the Bower’s Museum
Two days ago, I went to a Professional Networking event for women. Normally, as an introvert I am naturally hesitant to do something social with a large group of people. Nerves usually kick in and I get that funny feeling in my belly trying to get even a word out. However, base on the last event for this group, I felt it was a good … Continue reading Hi-Times Wine Tastings
Blessed with a stretch of coastline, a harbor cruise in Newport is a common water activity for many locals. It was late Friday afternoon, I had just arrived at the dock to meet my friends. We greeted each-other, hopped on our duffy and made ourselves comfortable. The sunset was glowing making the end of the day that much special. As I looked around me, I … Continue reading Take a cruise through the harbor in Newport Beach
Time really does move quickly. I can still remember writing a post from my last year’s bday. My day was spent relaxing on a terrace, taking in the sun while having brunch overlooking the city of Orange County. This year, I made a joint birthday brunch with a friend who also celebrated her birthday this month. Accompanied with our other friends, we spent our morning … Continue reading June Babies: Dual Birthday Brunch Celebration at Bluegold.
The 2nd day of our retreat started exactly at 8am. It was a cool morning and we started our company group bonding with a game at the Laguna Beach park overlooking the Pacific Coast ocean. Laguna Beach has one of the best views in Orange County that I’ve seen. Really, it truly is one of those where it makes you want to stop and take … Continue reading Ocean Fusion Wake Up Call – Retreat Day 2
The affair started a year ago. A group of us used to work together where we bonded over work drama and secretly meeting at restaurants to run away from our daily stressful lives at work. Somehow, we outgrew meeting at random restaurants over the months and one day, we decided to meet at a tea house. The affair became much deeper. I wasn’t quite sure if it was the love for tea or food or both but, since our first rendezvous at The Tea House on Los Rios, we knew we had to keep our tea meetings going.
