Birthday.

Since I “became an adult,” I’ve been utterly obsessed with Disneyland. Not so much Disney movies, characters or memorabilia, but specifically the theme parks. This obsession hit me late, but hard, and if you recall, David and I last visited the Disney park in Hong Kong. Their park is unique in its own way, and while you can find classic rides like “It’s a Small World” and a mystical take on “Haunted Mansion,” it just made me long for the Disneyland. This year for my Birthday, we took a theme park focused trip down to LA and even stopped by Universal Studios! I don’t want to overtly declare how old I turned, but let’s just say it was a great way to welcome the last year of my 20s..

Take me back!

Thanksgiving.

My family’s Thanksgiving tradition is quite simple. We know that we’ll always be together and that there will be A LOT of Chinese food. Classic dishes are roasted duck, sweet and sour prawns and my mom’s famous baked salmon.

We’ll always welcome a classic Thanksgiving dish or two, and this year, my family loved David’s sweet potato casserole.

Admittedly, David does more than half of our cooking, but this breakfast was truly a joint effort. #lovesundays
