Yum Yum in Tum Tum

Viet Ice Coffee (Cafe Sua Da) & Bake Pandan Leaf Cake (Banh Bo Nuong la Dua)

There are some of my two favorite snacks. When paired to compliment each other, it can be quite a treat.

past, present, future

I came to visit my family today where my dad had a package waiting for me. 
It was an acceptance package from FIT.

I want my two friends to get accepted to their school too, which I'm highly sure. 
And maybe we can have a toast to celebrate?

Went to a local flower field in Irvine yesterday.
So lovely, it reminded me of Big Fish when he's standing in the middle of a field of yellow flowers.

I love this time of spring when everything's blooming. My friends and I took advantage taking photos while the essence of the spring nature is here before it dies out when summer begins to arrive.

I'll miss California.

Lost Treasure Thrift Store

Yesturday afternoon, I checked out a local thrift store on Garden Grove Blvd. and Newland, whom a classmate commend me to go. And now I could see why this small place is surely something to praise about...
For first timers, there's no parking in the front. But there's parking available behind the store.
Inside is compact and cramped. The place is decked out with some random goods scattered here and there.

This cabinet behind the counter is filled with collectables...
I had to literally walk sideways to get through the few aisle of clothes. There is no fitting room, so be prepared to change openly in the back in front of a small mirror.

Sequence zip-up vest.

Hand bag here for $5
Friendly service by Janet here. She was pretty joyous in helping me hunt for items.
This place is better in person than in the pictures. I left the place with a huge bag full of goods. I got an ostrich feather shaw, rabbit fur scarf, two jackets, and a rabbit fur jacket vest. All for $40. Not too shabby...
