We drove a little over 2 hours to get to Black's Beach because we wanted a beach that wasn't as crowded as the more popular picks. It turned out that getting there required a long climb down (I've already erased the steep climb back up--in darkness--from my mind lol). The beach also turned out to be a nudist beach and I saw some boobies, but a lot of penises (beki friends, I'll send you the coordinates 😂) I saw young ones, hairy ones, gaily swinging ones, mostly a ton of old ones, and one who was casually petting it as he walked along the shore. 🙈😳🌄 Dongs aside, I had a great time ☺
Pan-de-monium (lol) at Porto's. I want to lie in a bed of their cheese rolls while being rained on by potato balls.
Our LA Airbnb came with a warm and friendly host family in an old, kitschy Catholic house (it felt like staying over a tita's '70s house in Alabang 😂). Bonus: it came with furry hosts, too! Three fat cats and two tiny senior chihuahuas (the one on the right is Estrelita). Bigger bonus: we arrived late at night after a six hour drive, famished and tired. We asked our host for a good place for tacos and she said, "Oh, you've come to the right place. This is taco heaven." Indeed, she easily recommended two places down the street across from each other. We picked the one that was open 24 hours (Tacos Mexico). 🌮🌮🌮🌯🌯🌯 The house is also right next door to a Pizza Hut! 😂
Bookstore hopping on a windy night. The cold has seeped into every pore of my body, but I feel warm and fuzzy on the inside 😁 I wanted a book about San Francisco that wasn't a guidebook, and I found exactly what I was looking for at Dog Eared Books ❤
Drove out to 🍷 country for super yum Italian marfatti/ravioli/gnocchi in meat sauce (Clemente at Val's, an Italian family-owned takeout place tucked inside a liquor store; everything handmade from scratch with super friendly service) and found a park to wine and dine 😊
Spotted this señorrific truck yesterday but it was closed. Found it again at a different area, had the spicy sisig burrito and it was sisigooooood. Sisig now off @messierspheroid's to-try list. 😁 🐷🐽 😊 @senorsisig
Today in numbers: 11kms of walking (feets = 😵), 5 neighborhoods visited, 1 "pho-nomenal" lunch (Pho 2000's words, not mine, but I agree with them), 1 maple bacon Dynamo donut, 1 bus taken, 13° weather, 0 cold weather wear (as usual) ☺️
I want it but I don't need it. I want it but I don't need it. Repeat 1,000,000,000,000,000,000 times.
One of my favorite #backtoschoolwithNBS finds: a bunny-shaped pencil sharpener (so tempted to try using this on my lip liners 😂) and *slightly* macabre--but cute--penguin page flags, where you can rip off the penguin's head when you've finished reviewing said flagged page. 🐧 Can't wait to do more back to school shopping at @nbsalert 😍😍😍
