Los Angeles, Ti amo!

Captain and I have been toying with the idea of retiring away from his homeland Italy and mine, Malaysia and one place that we both agree is the best place on earth is Los Angeles!  Boy, I love LA.. I love everything about it.  I just can't explain it in words but everytime I was there, I feel like things moved in a slower pace and people are healthier or attempt to be healthy, tanner, leaner.  I can see myself 10 years from now walking down Wilshire Blvd towards Santa Monica beach, shopping at Whole Food down the road, browsing one of those vintage/consignment shops or just simply having an espresso in one of those little Italian cafes.. Well, it could happen...

But for now, let me share some of the shots we took from our trip to LA last October. We are thinking about returning already!


Our cozy little 'home away from home' 15 minutes walk to Santa Monica Beach, nested among the quite residential area on 20th Street

The best place to view the Hollywood sign in my opinion, from the Grifith Park.  Locals, what do you think?


I had the chance to meet up with Dana of Dana's Lookbook at  The Grove for dinner and some shopping! What a great gal she is :)


Wish I live in one of those houses on Santa Monica beach




One thing hit my mind when I snapped this shot "Who needs treadmill?"

We were hoping to see the Endeavor at the Science Museum but she was not there yet, she arrived there a few days after we left :(


For lunch we loved to take a walk and discover little eateries like this Greens Up that served healthy salads in a portion so huge that they were served in huge metal bowls!  I mean humongous!

  33. Los Angeles!! My stomping ground, my hood, my home! I'm so glad you loved your stay in LA, I love it here too, it has some unexplainable magic. Some say it brings out the worst i people, I say it brings out whatever your truth is. So obviously it brings out the calm and relaxation and feel-good in you!

    With Love From Hollywood,
