Been busy lately

Hi, long time no see! I’ve been busy recovering from jet lag and cleaning stuff up in my room. As some of you know, I was gone during July 25th to August 2nd. The trip was incredibly amazing and breathtaking. I will put together some collages soon after I finish some summer school homework. ❤ I will also post some new stuff to the blog next week I hope. ☺

A few days already in Ireland!

Yay! July 25th, 2017 is the day I board a plane at LAX to go on a long flights to Ireland!

The day has finally come. I’m so nervous and ecstatic. I will be gone on a school trip that takes me from Los Angeles to Ireland. I know from itinerary and from looking on the college study tour site, from LAX to JFK airport. From there, it is JFK to Dublin. I’ve heard it’s to be a long flight. I can’t wait for jet lag. I suppose it’ll be my first adventure outside the USA.

Will updated you all more with Ireland when I have wifi. Ttyl


Market browsing for new items

I haven’t spent that much time in markets since I have been busy with home and school. Here is a collage of items that interested me.

I saw that Pop Tarts have three new flavors in stores; Jolly Rancher Green Apple, Watermelon, and Cherry. In the area where I could find pizza dough and cinnamon rolls, I found Pillsbury Grands! S’mores Rolls. It looks delicious! Passing by the chip aisles, I noticed Lay’s had a BLT flavor. I have known that they host making a new flavor contest in the recent years but I had not known they made a chip flavor from a sandwich. Next, I went to the deli area. I found some Rana brand basil pesto and prosciutto. There was different flavors of ravioli there too but didn’t have the money to buy it. Cocoa Puffs cereal had a new flavor; neopolitan ice cream scoops. Lastly, the big surprise was seeing on full display was Oreo. The latest limited edition flavor is a jelly donut. Would you try this? Or any of the other products I have seen?

Di Pilla’s

Last Saturday, I went with my family to a favorite Italian restaurant called Di Pilla’s. On Friday’s and Saturday’s, they serve clam chowder that is the best. It tastes great with the bread they serve. My mother orders spaghetti with mushrooms. My brother orders the same dish minus the mushrooms and more meat sauce. We also ordered a medium pizza with a sausage topping.

Italian music was playing on the speakers. We were seated in a booth. When we went, it was not hustling and bustling. We got there early. The best part of the evening was that we were celebrating a birthday and we got the staff singing happy birthday and free spumoni.

Overall experience, a 10! There was constant stops by the staff so that was cool. I love their clam chowder and their pizza. It was a great dinner.

Here is their website; Di Pilla’s .

Remaking a Buzzfeed recipe

I sort of remember about 2 years back I made a recipe from Buzzfeed. It’s like having breakfast and lunch at the same time. You have an egg in the middle and grilled cheese together. This time was different because I made the egg in the middle scrambled.

The ingredients needed is one egg, two pieces of bread, butter, and cheese. First, you make your grilled cheese your way and take it out of the pan. Cut out a circle out of the grilled cheese and put it back onto the pan. Break an egg in the hole and let it cook. I used a chopstick to mix the egg to make it scrambled. When the other side is cooked, flip it over using a spatula. Flip it over as much as you need it to be cooked. Make sure to cut it down the middle.

Below is my work. I think it looks pretty good! To look for the Buzzfeed try; here’s the link; The Best Breakfast Sandwich Is Actually A Grilled Cheese.

Here’s the other link back to when I tried to make this recipe the first time; tried a new recipe !!

Hello Kitty cookies

I bought this box of Betty Crocker at least more than 6 months ago, never opened it or used it. Finally, the other day I opened the box and took out ingredients and made the cookie batch. Sometimes, I don’t understand directions. I get confused by teaspoon and tablespoon. The batch was dry and not mixing well. I added more vegetable oil and water to it and it became very sticky. That’s how I knew it was ready.

I made 16 cookies. Oh did I forget? It came with edible stickers. I put them on before they went into the oven. They cooked beautifully. They tasted like strawberries. I’m not too sure if I would buy this again. Have you seen this in markets?

Creating a photography blog

Guess what? I made a new blog on WordPress with my friends.

The blog will be photography based with a mix of our life, food, scenery, and the places we will go. We will be posting about tutorials about the cameras we own, how to use them and on and on. We will be doing plenty of photo shoots this summer.

I hope to print our work and sell it to friends, building up our clients and to do well as a photographer. I also know of a ton of places that we can venture to and do different types of working the angles, lighting and making great photographs.

Here is the link; LA Snapshots Photography  There will be new posts there as soon as we do photo shoots!

Don’t worry, I will be still working on my blog; tribeccarandomthoughts. It’s still my main priority but I do want to make sure both blogs excel!
