Sunmerry Bakery / Irvine, CA

After we ate yummy noodles at A&J Restaurant, we headed next door to Sunmerry Bakery. It’s a Taiwanese bakery similar to 85c Bakery. Sunmerry Bakery isn’t a large shop but there were plenty of baked goods to look at!  They...

I’ve been following Lumpia City on Instagram for awhile and I finally got the chance to check them out. They can often be found setting up shop at different breweries around town.

Matua’s Sushi Bar & Islander Grill | Chula Vista

Valley View Casino Buffet | Valley Center

Last month my mom had the great idea to treat Jake and I to “free” buffet at Valley View Casino. I’m sure she planned this out carefully. Mom gets a ride to the casino while Jake and I get to...
