Manny Pacquiao in Santa Monica

Manny Pacquiao made an appearance at The Santa Monica Place mall, to promote his new line of merchandise with Nike.  Prior to his appearance at Nike Town, Manny did a live Q&A session in front of thousands of fans.  Awesome!


Pop Tart Mega Cafe Opens In Time Square New York

Today on Yahoo, I read something about Pop Tarts opening this ginormous cafe in Times Square New York.  They will feature something like 30 different Pop Tarts creations!  I also read something about Pop Tart sushi.  Ewww.  That doesn’t sound appetizing, but it would sure be fun to stop by the Pop Tart Mega Cafe!


Korean BBQ Annual Cook Off!

After a long night of festivities, JP & I strolled over to Ktown for the KBBQ Annual Cook Off.  As soon as we arrived, we totally scored the best parking ever!  We ended up paralleling it only a block away, and luckily our meter was a broken one.  hahah.  So it read FAIL, which is awesome, since it’s off limits for meter maids to write you a ticket. =)

So, we took our sweet time and enjoyed all kinds of wonderful foods and drinks in the soju & beer garden.  Jp’s favorite was from Seoul Sausage, and I loooooved the Kalbi Burger.  Both were delicious, since they had traditional Korean flavor, but were presented with a westernized fusion.  The thick slice of tomato, red onions, and lettuce, really made the Kalbi burger complete.  I’m definitely going to find their restaurant to have another one, next time I’m in K town.  Oh, and the Seoul sausage was presented on a bun, and topped off with kimchee.  The combo sounds gross, but it was totally good!  Cool Haus & the Sprinkles truck were there to satisfy those with who have been touched by the sweet tooth fairy.

Another huge feature at the food festival was the soju & beer garden, hosted by Jinro and Hite Beer.  We also caught the tail end of the Choco Pie eating contest, and the 1st place winner ate 30 of them!  Eeeek, I’m still thinking about how many calories and grams of sugar he ingested.  Yucky!

Aside from all the yummy eats, we did walk away with some swag of course!

–  6 Jinro soju cups

–  Hite bottle opener and flash light keychain (Hey, this totally makes sense if you were going to drink in the dark and couldn’t see what you were doing.  Genius!)

–  Audrey Magazine (summer issue)

–  Toothbrush and dental goodies from Wp Institute

–  Hand sanitizer lotion from Jinro

Tents lined the parking lot, turned food festival venue. haah

Folks gather in the big tent to watch competitions and special demos.

Spotted a cool Flying Pigeon bike. Super popular in China.

Lines were a tad bit long, but definitely worth the wait.

Yep, Parks KBBQ was in the house!

Sprinkle me, sprinkle me!

When you have the mama's cooking, it's a good sign. 😉

Those were my buddies... Hite and Jinro!

My favorite piece of swaaaaag. 6 Jinro soju cups!


Pre-Grand Opening @ The Santa Monica Place

I was so fortunate to attend the private pre-opening festivities @ The Santa Monica Place yesterday.  The new and improved shopping plaza is gorgeous!  It has Cb2, Hugo, Boss, Nike Town, Nordstroms, and Bloomies!  There’s also dinning on the top terrace, which features a breath taking view of Santa Monica.  Enjoy my sneak peak photos.

Btw, be sure to check out the main website for The Santa Monica Place.  They are having special promotions for the entire month of August, to celebrate their grand opening.


Mini Petting Zoo @ The Farmers Market.

It’s cute to see all the kids get excited for pony rides @ the farmers mkt, but for July 4th weekend, it was a mini petting zoo!  Too cute!
