My friend Jim (ZYX) came to visit for a week because of the ParaPara panel we held at AX. His aunt lives in SGV now so we went up there to meet with them and go to Round 1 for purikura. We also ate at Yukino-ya Ramen as usual!
There was a brand new Forever 21 that opened at one of my local malls, South Coast Plaza in Costa Mesa, CA. It shares space with Sears but is separate from it, with entrances inside and outside the mall.
The layout of the store reminded me of a floor in Shibuya 109, with each sub-brand getting their own space!
A view of some clothing racks with cosmetics and accessories in the center.
A view of some of the shoe displays along with another view of the store.
Sometime in the month I decided to go on a GNO (Girls Night Out) with my friends to LA's Little Tokyo. We wanted to go to Manekineko in the Japanese Village Plaza for their NYX goods, but we wandered off to Weller Court for food and saw this...
For dinner we decided to eat at Chin-Ma-Ya of Tokyo, a ramen shop with fairly good reviews. They specialize in Tantanmen but have other types of ramen as well.
My ramen, which is a tantanmen ramen without the spicy kick and added chashu and corn :)
While during the week I usually eat pretty well (I've changed my eating habits and have lost about 10lbs!), but on the weekend I'll splurge a bit ;) This was from one weekend at the Fullerton High School Fundraiser and Munchathon.
Lobster and shrimp grinder sandwich from SlapFish. Very good deal for $5!
The line for Grill 'Em All, which will forever be long! Totally worth it though.
More of the crowds at the food truck meetup.
Getting closer to Grill 'Em All!
The next day was Munchathon, which I won a pair of tickets for from Saturday Night Foodies. Many thanks to them again :)
Chicken balls, coleslaw and bearnaise sauce from LudoTruck.
The Lime Truck has 2 different trucks, this one is the "sheriff" one and I found out why lol
