I had the best Valentine’s Day/ President’s Day weekend ever! My boyfriend and I were dying to go on an adventure outside of the Bay area so we decided to go to LA for weekend getaway! We’ve been LA many times and we love the culture there. We especially love the Asian food and crazy aggressive drivers! LA is so spread out and there’s so much to do! We stayed around Hacienda Heights and we love it there! It was 90 degrees in LA in February!
I’ve always wanted to go to a shooting range so we decided to spend Valentine’s Day playing with guns. My boyfriend, a former marine was SO FREAKING GOOD! His precision was amazing. He was also such a very good teacher and taught me in a way that made me feel safe. (I’m a scaredy cat!) It was the best date ever, I loved seeing him absorbed in action. We haven’t had this much fun together in a while!
After shooting, we went to watch DEADPOOL! It was freaking hilarious! Too bad my hearing is kinda bad and I couldn’t hear all the jokes completely. It was our first time watching a movie in LA and the audience was rowdy! After the movies, we had GEN Korean BBQ. It’s a chain in L.A. and it did not disappoint. $20 for all you can eat was a crazy good deal! I didn’t have to stuff myself and I really enjoyed the atmosphere! So lounge-y and the staff was super nice.
We were so tired from all these activities that we knocked out right when we got back to our hotel. I was so so so happy!
The next day, this happened at the hotel pool. IT WAS FREEZING! Not normal pool water cold, but literally FREEZING! I came out after 5 seconds. HAHA!
Then we went over to Arcadia to have the infamous Shanghai soup dumplings!
So we walked around and found a Vietnamese bubble tea shop 🙂
Honestly, the dumplings were a bit overrated. Joe’s Shanghai in NYC is so much better! Then again, I have a lot of emotions attached to Joe’s Shanghai because it’s my go-to spot back home. The fried pork chops here were really good though! (not pictured, we devoured it!)
We spent the majority of the day driving around, exploring neighborhoods and visiting a friend. For dinner, we had sushi!
I am so grateful and I feel so lucky to be loved by such a wonderful guy! I hope you guys had a wonderful weekend too!
