Cooking Kinpira Gobo

There was a time in April when I was alone at home for weeks. I had to step it up and get myself cookin'! One of my biggest flaws? Laziness! And no, I'm not proud of it.....I thought this was a great chance to make things I like, and try to cook food I've never tried before! Did I ever mention I absolutely LOVEJapanese food?? Well,

626 Asian Night Market

Lack of posts lately, I know! I've been soooooooo busy with school and other things. I wanted to do a post on something that happened a while ago ( yes, over a month or more). If you live in LA, you might have heard about it before, or even participated. There was an event called 626 Asian Night Market, which basically tries to mimic the night markets in Asia, like in Taiwan or Hong Kong. There are supposed to be food vendors along a big street..but this one seemed to be quite small compared to the ones in Asia, due to the fact that the planners didn't foresee the CRAZY amount of people going there. There was a huge hype about it thanks to the power of media. 

As you can see in the following, we were stuck in traffic, and we weren't even in the city that was holding this event...we were in the neighboring city. It normally takes 20 minutes to get there, but it took a little over 2 hours....imagine the crowd that was waiting there. See the traffic light turning green? We're still not moving.

Oh, look the light turned yellow! But, only ONE car got to cross! Actually, it might have been just stuck in the middle of the intersection...
