:( I’m sorry I haven’t updated in awhile. It’s been so so crazy at work that I’ve neglected you, dear Intrawebs.

Over Halloween weekend, I attended a house party. I felt like I was in college again. Yay frat parties?!?! Good times though, with good people :) :)

Hope everyone had a safe Halloween 2 weeks  ago!!

I’m a cheater. I haven’t picked up my camera in weeks. I suck.

Here are some old pictures.

Stay tuned for an engagement shoot!

Rode the Bolt Bus from NYC over to Boston. It took us about 5 hours to get there because of traffic. We pretty much slept most of the way there. When we got to the station, Emmy met us there with a ZipCar! Pretty cool concept if you think about it. You go online, look for the closest ZipCar in your area, and rent by the hour.

The architecture in Boston is gorgeous. After spending some time over on the East coast, I’ve realized that LA lacks some serious culture. If I had guests visiting from out of town, I wouldn’t even know where to take them to show them what LA is all about. I’d probably just take them on food adventures…but that’s it. What else is there to do in LA?!

First night we got there, we headed to the Greatest Bar, as recommended by a friend. That place was wayyyyy too packed. So we made a quick exit and walked down the street to a restaurant. The Laker/Suns game was on that night and we had to catch the game somewhere.

Wifey and company decided to join us.

This is us on our way back to Emmy’s place. Empty subway/train thingymajiggy!

Called it a night, then woke up bright and early to catch wifey’s graduation.

At night time, wifey’s parents treated us out to some DELICIOUS grub at Legal Seafoods. This is where I experienced my first lobster roll. And all was good in the world.

Soft shell crab. I was watching Animal Planet the other day and they had a documentary on eating tarantulas. It looked similar to this. And supposedly tastes similar to soft shell crab. Now this picture creeps me out.

L1060263

Wifey and the parentals!

Afterwards, we headed to Boston’s version of Fu’s Palace. I know you remember that place. You Asian sorority/fraternity affiliated person, you.

They had this thing called the Scorpion Bowl. It was pretty delicious.

This is me using my ninja chopstick skills to get a piece of ice with two straws.

After we left, we went to the airport to pick up Sarah. WHEEEEEEE!

Now a little bit of history of the upcoming day. Friday. Eastern Conference Finals, Game 6. The¬†minute Boston beat Cleveland, I jumped online and purchased 6 tickets to Game 6, knowing that would be the only game I’d be able to catch while in Boston. When I left LA, things weren’t looking so good, as Boston was up in the series and we needed Orlando to win 2 games consecutively for us to have a Game 6. Everywhere I went, I wished in fountains that there would be one. And when we arrived, there was one.

First off, we explored Quincy Market for lunch.

We walked around the area and found Newbury Comics. The geek in me was very happy.

Headed to the Little Italy district for some desserts. Canoli’s, check!

Re-enacted what I thought was the Civil War, but apparently Paul Revere had nothing to do with that. Also hated on some Laker colored flowers sitting in the window sill.

Had a bit of trouble getting out of the garden…we were stopped by fans left and right because of two LAKER FANS traveling with us.

“Let me get a picture of the Lau’s and the Lee’s”

…….I was the only Lee…so I invited Gloomy Bear Lee to be in the picture too.

Dude, I just realized that random people were in all of our group pictures. -__-

Look at all these people. So ridiculous. I’ve never seen anything like this. I don’t agree with public transportation just yet.

We left for the airport at 4am. And snuck this into Emmy’s freezer.

It never felt so good to be home. These LA feet are not meant for walking.

Also, sorry it took so long for me to upload. Been caught up at work lately!

I’ve lived in LA pretty much all my life and I know we have papparazzo around…but I’ve never seen any til I was in NY! They were camping out to get a pic of Tom Cruise, Katie Holmes, and Suri. We camped out with them for 20 minutes but we never saw them and didnt have time to waste.

Okay before I end the post with this last picture, I’d like to tell you a story about how wonderful my loving friends are. So we walk to this gorgeous place with a view of the water and the bridge and the city. I set up my tripod and am taking long exposure shots. Think 30 second shots. All of a sudden, I hear all my friends run away, but I’m still changing all my settings etc. I press the shutter, and stand around waiting for the shot to finish. Then I hear giggling from far away so naturally, I turn back to see what my friends are giggling about. As my head turns to my right, I catch a glimpse of a BUM sleeping on the bench about 2 feet away from me. And I’m about to scream but I don’t want to wake him up, and my shot isn’t finished. Once I hear the shutter click, I grab my tripod/camera and run like the wind as my friends laugh their asses off at me. I asked them why they didn’t tell me about the bum, and they said they didn’t want to bother me because I was apparently “in the zone”. -_____________________-;;

Perfect way to end the night.
