Merry Christmas everyone from AS & Tomoyo at Chibified.
Saturday, May 5
We arrived in LA at 5:00 AM. The flight got in a little early, which we actually didn’t want since we didn’t want to wake up AS’ family who were picking us up! Luckily, his aunt had actually woken up early that day and we made our way to the pick up area and waited maybe 20 minutes before she got there and took us to her house.
I conked out right after we got there. I can never sleep on planes. AS woke me up around 9:00 AM so we could get going on our food crawl. His aunt and a cousin elected to join us.
Last year, a restaurant that specialized in steamed soup dumplings (aka xiao long bao or xlb for short) opened in our area, but they were expensive and I didn’t really have another restaurant to compare it to, so I really wanted to try it while we were in LA since restaurants that serve xlb are so plentiful in comparison. XLB crawls are quite popular, so it was easy to research which restaurants were the best.
It’s been a busy, busy 2012 so far. Despite our best intentions to go back to blogging regularly, it just never happened. Oops. ^^;
Today is Tomoyo’s Birthday ^^.
I always found it interesting that her birthday is the day before Valentine’s Day. Which means I have to work twice as hard lol.
Here’s to Tomoyo.
The Dragon personality The Dragon is a creature of myth and legend. A symbol of good fortune and sign of intense power, the Oriental Dragon is regarded as a divine beast – the reverse of the malicious monster that Westerners felt necessary to find and slay. In Eastern philosophy, the Dragon is said to be a deliverer of good fortune and a master of authority. Therefore, those people born in Dragon years are to be honored and respected.
I know we haven’t been as active as we were before but we’re still around xD.
We at Chibified wish a happy holiday to you and your loved ones.
Also hope to post more come next year ^^.
What have I been up to? Nothing, really. Once you’re out of school, it seems like life is nothing but work, eat, sleep and occasionally seeing friends.
I am prepping for our next trip. I know it seems like we go on a lot of trips, but it’s not really true. xD The last trip I went on was in January. It’s more AS, than me, this year.
Anyhow, so we’re going to Disneyland. Yes, again. xD But this time, instead of Halloween, we’re going to see the park decorated for Christmas! We’re also going to Pacific Media Expo (PMX), a small con in LA. They always seem to have a lolita fashion guest of honor, and this year is no exception. ^_^
Well, as the title says, it’s been awhile! I bet you all thought we were taking another trip, eh? xD
Well, if I had typed out this post at the beginning of June like I had planned, then it would’ve been true. However, AS has decided at the last minute to go to AM², an anime convention during the 4th of July weekend at the Anaheim Convention Center in Southern California. I wish I could say that I was going as well, but it’s impossible for me to get off work right now and airfare is just horribly expensive, so he’s going with his brother, instead.
Busy with life right now. But that doesn’t stop orders from coming in lol.
Got a package a few days ago from HLJ, took 15 days with SAL from the day I got the shipped email. Now I need to decide what to do and maybe you can help?
