TAYO launch and los angeles shenanigans
finally got a moment to settle down and just sort through everything after LA! it was a whirlwind when i got back (going straight to a Babae meeting almost right out of the car), but this was my first trip to LA where i actually got to sight-see a little bit🙂. the city of smog was full of sunshine, not so bad traffic, and good times!
drove down early saturday morning (8.22) to catch the TAYO Literary Magazine launch party @ salakot bar and grill in the evening.
the event was fun, and was a warm welcome (literally :)) to the LA fil-am/arts community. i’m happy to have been a part of the magazine’s inaugural launch!
and for the rest of the week, just a bunch of shenanigans! (click the thumbnails to view larger)
filipino food from arko’s in glendale..and hella big halo halo!
universal city walk (“free admission” but $20 for parking!?)
yummy cupcakes in burbank..soo delicious!
getty museum, santa monica
last stop, disneyland😛. bought our tickets from craigslist and saved over 50%! take THAT disney corporate! hehe
fun trip overall, but i think i’m a bay girl through and through. reminded of how much i love this town when we were greeted with beautiful clouds as we drove into the city.
