Dear Chibi,

It was time to say good-bye to San Francisco and fly to Las Vegas, the casino paradise. One of the first things we saw when we landed was this:

Oh yes of course… I shouldn’t have expected anything less. LOL! Well played Vegas..well played… XD With Casino references left and right, Las Vegas was sure to be an amusing experience.

Here we are!

US Trip Part 3: NBA Warriors Game

10th December 2017

Part 1: Los Angeles & Coastal Drive
Part 2: Exploring San Francisco

The Warriors game end up being my favourite part of the trip, so I’ve decided to dedicate a whole blog entry about my experience. Hopefully it will still be interesting to non-Basketball enthusiasts :)

Dear Chibi,

Geared up and ready to go!!! Looks like Hubby has converted ;) ohohohho~

Golden State Warriors vs Orlando Magic

We watched the Warriors vs Magic 13th November, 7.30pm game at Oracle Arena. We didn’t base our USA trip around the NBA schedule, since it wasn’t released when we were planning our trip. I was thrilled there was actually a home game while we were in San Francisco! I would’ve been devastated to miss out on seeing them play live. We bought tickets about 2 months ago, and I’ve been looking forward to it since. It also happened to be ‘Steph Curry Championship Bobblehead Night’, so the first 10,000 fans in attendance got one! Ahhhh I NEEDED IT!

US Trip Part 2: Exploring San Francisco

8th December 2017

Dear Chibi,

See Part 1: Los Angeles & Coastal Drive

In-N-Out to start the day!

We’ve been trying to have this since day 1, but somehow timing was just never quite right. At this point, I was still feeling nausea from Five Guys, so I tried to eat as light as I could (Which wasn’t possible from In-N-Out so I just…didn’t eat at all lol XD). According to Hubby, it was pretty amazing! Possibly higher than Five Guys on his list. What we didn’t realise was that they had a “Secret Menu” which allowed you to order some crazier stuff like “Animal Style Fries” & “3×3 burger”. Fear not- we had another round of In-N-Out later in the trip to make up for it 8D.

US Trip Part 1: Los Angeles & Coastal Drive

5th December 2017

Home Sweet Homeeeeee! :D I miss my cat.

Dear Chibi,

Hubby and I have recently returned from our 3 week holiday in the States :D The trip was for our 3 year wedding anniversary which lands on November 15th. It was our first time venturing outside of Asia, so the long flight was quite the experience ;D (and a little daunting at first). During our stay we visited Los Angeles, Santa Barbara, Santa Monica, Monterey, San Francisco, Las Vegas, The Grand Canyon, Orlando, Miami and finally New York. I’ve got a lot to cover, so I’ll will be splitting up my blog entries into several parts as I make my way through all the photos. So, let’s get started!

Firstly, we landed in LA early in the morning. I only managed around 4 hours of sleep during the 14 hour flight. LA was 16 hours behind Sydney, so the timezone difference was messing with my brain XD. After the first day though my body clock seemed to have adjusted and it was all good from there :D Phew!

Our rental car for our drive up the West Coast.

Somps’ Wedding Thank Yous

4th December 2017

Dear Chibi,

‘Thank You’ card & photo prints from Somps & Dong’s wedding. What a thoughtful gesture and such lovely photos :3

Level 40! Finally maxed out in Pokemon Go

26th November 2017

Dear Chibi,

During my holiday in the US, and after 1 year and 5 months of play, I finally joined Hubby in the level 40 club :D

Ohhh it feels good 8D! It takes a ton of exp to reach level 40, so I was never in a big rush to max out. I guess playing a bit everyday adds up overtime (and lucky-egging during special events)

Trick or Treat!

31st October 2017

Dear Chibi,

Happy Halloweeeeeen! We decided to dress up Champy in his lion outfit, isn’t he adorable? :’) As usual, we couldn’t get him to stop moving around so video screenshots will have to do.

Saturday Night @Helen’s

29th October 2017

Dear Chibi,

Yesterday we spent the evening at Helen’s new place in Liberty Grove. The area seems pretty nice and it also has a tennis court. Fong managed to play a bit before heading to a bucks, while Jacky & Jia played for another hour or two. The rest of us relaxed with some cheese, olives & crackers back at home.

Catch-Up Dinner @Arisun

21st October 2017

Dear Chibi,

It’s been a crazy long week in the office. I’m glad I had a Friday night catch-up to look forward to, even though it was unexpectedly cold and wet. It was so cold I had to get an emergency cardigan since I was only in a tee :’D Worked out in the end at least, heheee.

We decided to have Korean @Arisun in Chinatown. This place always looked busy but I’ve never dined there myself. The food’s not bad, very tasty. We ordered the spicy grilled pork belly, crispy boneless fried chicken and diy seasoned rice balls. I think my favourite were the rice balls. It reminds me of Hubby’s onigiri :3
