During my thanksgiving break, i went to Michigan Ann Arbor. I came across this coffee shop called sweetwaters. I’ve been to ann arbro several time and this is my first time seenig this coffee shop around Ann Arbor so i decide to give it a try.
After several research, this is a relative new coffee shop. They currently have 4 outlets where 3 of them located at Ann Arbor and 1 Located at Ypsilanti. The picture above if the one at Ypsilanti.
Since i was only there for 3 days, i only manage to test 2 of their drink. I drank their Mocha and “Dragon Eye”. Dragon is actually a cup of coffee with sweetened condense milk. Both of their drink are really good. Especially their Mocha. It is so nice that out of my 3 days in Michigan i drank 2 cups of their mocha.
I really wish they will have an outlet at NYC soon. If u happen to be in Ann Arbor, just stop by one of their cafe and give it a try!
So during my thanksgiving break i went to Las Vegas, Nevada with my sister and parents for this award show called the Rumi awards which was based at South Point casino and hotel. At first, we were supposed to stay at the Aria hotel but my mom decided to go wih the flow and stay at the hotel where the event was being held. The second i landed at the airport in Vwgas, I see slot machines at the gates. I was so not shocked LOL… I love the fact that everyone is so down to earth in the west coast. I find the east coast to be filled with serious and rude people. ESPECIALLY New yorkers! . The Rumi awards was a three day event and i enjoyed attending all three days. I met a few new people and made new friends. I’m glad i decided to go with my parents. I enjoyed exploring the Vegas strip at night. Lets just say, Everyone is drunk 24.7, even the cashier at the gas station was drunk and i wasn’t surprised. The Vegas strip is amazing at night. They have amazing casinos and clubs called Hakkasan, Marquee and Caesars Hotel to go to as well as restaurants called In and out and Serendipity. I actually wouldn’t mind living in Vegas! I took a few pics of the Vegas strip at night. Its pretty blurry and that’s because my phone sucks.
Today i would like to present you the new installation of Philip K Smith III, opened in october 2013, in Joshua Tree, in California.
The artist used mirrored panels to give to the 70-years-old cabin an impression of see-through the beautiful surroundings. The mirrored panels partially cover the building’s exterior walls, as well as the windows and doorway. At night, LEDs cause the building to glow in colors.
It’s a simple enough concept, but the effect is striking and makes the building seem to almost disappear, or glow, depending on its state, which i think is really interesting.
This house is called Lucid Stead and is located on a land owned by the artist himself.
Phillip K Smith III received his Bachelor of Fine Arts and Bachelor of Architecture at the Rhode Island School of Design. He continues to push the boundaries and confront the ideas of modernist design. Drawing inspiration from the cold rigidity of the Bauhaus movement, the reductive geometries of minimalism, and the optic sensation of California’s Light and Space movement, Smith III attempts to resolve the complex challenge of finding a natural state of life and spirit within these ideological aesthetic constrictions, the results are deceptively simple and compelling objects that seem to breath and move as you observe and interact with them.

Two days ago, I was walking by the boardwalk of Venice Beach in LA when suddenly I have discovered my heaven food place : Poké-Poké.
Poké is an Hawaiian style tuna tar-tar. The fish is marinated in and mixed with onions and other veggies.
Poké Spicy Aloha and Poké Aloha
My friends and I were first attracted by the front of this small to go restaurant. We are big fan of raw fish so obviously the menu seduced us. We were not disappointed by our choice. The fish and the shrimps are fresh, the vegetables are good and the seasoning is delicious. You have a selection of juice from the brand Hawaiian Sun. I had already taste it, I was surprise and happy to find them. If you are not a big fan of raw fish they also propose shrimps and salads.
The concept is very simple, look at the menu:
This place bring you into it world with the front paint in blue and decorated with the surf boards. The water and the juices are imported from Hawaii. During a short time you can escape and believe that you are in Hawaii (not that Venice beach is a bad place to be).
You can find them on the 1827 Ocean Front Walk, Venice, CA 90291 and if you are in this area and lazy they also delivered!
More information on their website, you can also follow them on Facebook and on Twitter
YES, This is real! Amazon.com just announced their new way of super-fast delivery: Prime Air. The new delivery system features little drones that can fly without any human being present and bring your order to your door in no more than 30 minutes! This is truly next level compared to a FedEx guy who shows up at your door in 2 to 3 business days.
After Jeff Bezos announced the big news on the Charlie Rose show this weekend, the news went viral and today Amazon.com released a brief statement with a short video clip showing the flying robot that looks like its from Star Wars and how it will work. Although they say that its commercial use is still a few years away due to the current FAA Rules and Regulations, and there are still many questions to be answered, this is still something that people can look forward to as: The next genereation of home delivery.
Nature soothes me . In Paris, I was running in every direction and just could stop when I contemplated the Seine. ” But, why are you talking about ducks ? ” he said. It is true, that, why ? I did not know myself. I just felt my limbs relax , my eyes falling into the void , the time stopped … the same feeling like after a puff of weed . I must have looked like crazy.
Actually, I look like more crazy in the pre phase: when I totally implodes , my neurons disconnected and must find a solution quickly, very quickly . As if the buildings of New York curled over me, choking me more . The alarm is activated . So I do what I can do , run, save myself.
Thank God he understands me . I know it is not easy, I can not help it , I want , I go , perhaps soon . I get to know these mechanisms As I already tamed psoriasis , why not the rest ? ” You have always lived alone, that’s why you have trouble with the world.”
It does not take that wrong, it is not selfishness ;
I just hard to let “others” in my world …
I think everyone knows what happened last night. Paul Walker died in a car accident in Southern California. He was only 40. It was a heartbreaking news. For me as a girl, I know him because of the movie “Fast and Furious” and Walker was the main character. I didn’t know about him much but he was handsome and cool (sh…).
Let’s talk about my first impression of him behind the movie. I remember when I first liked his Facebook page, his profile picture was staying close with a big cat (I don’t exactly remember it was a lion or something else but he deleted that picture in his facebook) in a forest. The moment I saw the profile picture I thought I liked the wrong page, because it was different of what he is in my mind (based on the movie). Then I clicked to see more photos, and I was surprised that he likes wild animals. It was cute because I love animals too especially cats.
However, he is a really amazing actor and people love him. After the news of his dead, his official Facebook and Twitter page has updated to confirm the news. It is irony because he likes car so much but died in a car accident. I was talking to my friend said can he resurrect like those other people in the movie Fast & Furious? However, there is another message that I want to bring out is treasure who you care now. Accident happens, don’t regret after they left.
Here is Paul Walker’s last movie “hours” and the release date is Dec 13, 2013. Hope everyone will enjoy his last completed movie.
