Weekend Love: California Trip


We took a mini vacation last week and surprised the boys with a trip to the Aquarium of the Pacific in Long Beach, California.






Giant japanese spider crab.

Meeting Lola the parrot.

Our dear friends also had their baby shower in California which made the trip extra special.




Ry asked about the baby's name. They still don't know but maybe until she arrives.


We hugged a tree and lost one shoe.


We visited Bert from Rooted


Trying to take pictures but Zo wanted to roam around.


Woes Martin painted this recently on one of the walls.


 And Ry drawing his favorite animal (can you guess what it is?) on Rooted's chalkboard.

Thus, we shopped at Ikea and managed to fit two area rugs in our car. The boys love them.


Hope your weekend is going good.

Recipe: Korean BBQ Chicken Bulgogi



This recipe is adapted from Alice of Savory Sweet Life. The only thing I took out was the red pepper flakes. I wanted to make this a kid-friendly meal since my boys are too young to try out the spicy stuff. As for white sugar, I substituted turbinado sugar which is what I had in my pantry. Enjoy!


{ Korean BBQ Chicken Bulgogi Recipe }

Ingredients 
- ⅓ cup of light soy sauce
- 3 tablespoons white sugar or turbinado sugar 
- 1 tablespoons sesame oil 
- 3 cloves of garlic, minced
-  2 pinches of black pepper 
- ¼ teaspoon kosher salt 
- 1-1.5 lbs. of thinly sliced chicken breasts
- ¼ medium yellow onion
- 2 green onions, finely chopped into small pieces

Instructions 
Cut breast into bite size strips about 1" wide. Chop yellow onion and slice into medium moon shaped slivers. Slice 2 green onions including the white parts, finely sliced into small pieces and set aside. Mix all the ingredients together in a medium bowl except green onions, chicken and yellow onions. Add chicken and yellow onions once the sugar is almost dissolved to the bowl. With your hands, massage the chicken with the marinade. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour. Make sure to drain any excess marinade before frying. Place a few slices of chicken and onions in single layers and completely flat on a hot oiled frying pan/wok and fry each side until cooked and slightly caramelized. Serve with a bowl of hot rice and sprinkle green onions on top!



Delicious!

Weekend Love: Music + Art Inspiration

Currently obsessing with "Numb" by Cassie featuring Rick Ross and crazy art by Woes Martin from Fat Sniper







Hubby was so excited to meet Mr. Woes for the very first time!  







Woes designed a wall for our friend, Bert, back when my Ry was just 4-months-old. I love this modern panda art in black and white!


Below image shows Bert at his shop with Ry when he use to be a chubby, baby panda himself!


Now my little man is 4 years old and his brother Zo is growing up so fast too! 


What are you up to on this fine day?
