Malibu Wine Safari

A few days ago I went wine tasting on a safari at Saddlerock Ranch and vineyard in Malibu with my friend for her birthday. It was a lot of fun trying six different types of wines while also spending time meeting cute animals and feeding them.

One of the things I love about Los Angeles is that there are plenty of cool hiking spots you can go to. One of these hiking spots is Runyon Canyon with its North entrance located off Mulholland Drive. You can find a small parking lot on this entrance. Runyon Canyon has the East Trail (medium) and West Trail (difficult). I’ve only taken the East Trail and would…

Last week I visited Santa Barbara, a cute beach town two hours away from Los Angeles. Usually when I travel to a place, I do the top touristy things to do.

Last week I visited Noah Purifoy Outdoor Desert Art Museum in Joshua Tree, an hour away from Palm Springs, California. This place reminded me of a post nuclear warfare era which inspired me to write the following poem I included in this post. The outfit shown throughout my pictures is the…

The Pier

Yesterday’s Friday evening was spent at the iconic Malibu Pier with an after dinner at Cholada Thai Beach Cuisine which is a few minutes from the pier. The pier itself has Malibu Farm Pier Cafe which is very convenient if you are just hanging out by the pier. However, I really wanted some Thai food and Cholada Thai Beach Cuisine did not disappoint. I usually get…

Early Spring

Early spring in Los Angeles can still be chilly at times. Or not if you’re used to harsh winters and then come to visit Los Angeles. You’ll probably think I am out of mind and won’t be needing a light coat or jacket on like I do. It is true that weather here is great almost all year round. There might still be some April showers…
