It first started because of my roommates.
Two of them were excessive bakers. Feeling guilty because I was of no help (except to help them eat), I decided to photograph their edible pursuits. Taking pictures of the deliciouness seemed to have made them last longer and sharing them on Facebook and my blog seemed to have allowed more people to enjoy them (even though most of my viewers seem to hate me for spreading such beauty into the world. I often received comments like,"Ughhhh why did you post this after I just went to the gym?" and "Now I'm hungry, you suck.")

Now I can't seem to stop. No longer are my past roommates baking (at least not for me) but I am still clicking away.

The New York Times wrote a really on-the-spot article about this obsession and burgeoning trend.
Be expecting lots and lots of food pictures as I chomp my way through The Big Apple this weekend!

Magic Castle

A castle fit for a princess.
A castle filled with magic and mystique.
A castle high up in the hills.

This is the Magic Castle. High up in the Hollywood hills, this historic landmark is the favorite hangout to magicians all over the world. Outsiders need to garner an invite in order to just pay the $20 admission fee.

That on top of the pricey fancy meal can make for a steep night but it's rare for one to be able to have an opportunity to doll up in LA in places other than clubs and lounges. Watching magic shows is a refreshing change.

Don't we all look so ravishing? I think so too.

Here I am getting magic'd on. He later set my hand on fire. Just kidding (?)

Sad this blog has not been updated on as much as I'd like to. Been working regularly these days, making it hard to go out for a jaunt of sorts. However, next weekend, I will be visiting another magical place: New York City! Get ready for much updates then (though many may be about food... you don't mind, do you?)
