I know I'm late on posting this weekend but yesterday was so crazy. I was so busy from the moment I woke up to the minute I went to bed. So yesterday, I woke up and got some homework done because I knew I was going to have a busy day ahead of me. So I worked on homework until I decided to take a break and do some exercise. After that, I got ready for the baby shower. Ohmigod, I have not seen her in forever. I got to say hi to her son and we chatted a bit because she was busy with all the other guests. Anyway, I had lunch there and her mom had made tamales (made from scratch) and they were so good. I stayed for a bit but had to go early since my family was going to go to a Burmese Festival in Little Tokyo later that night. So we got home, I rested a bit, took a shower and was back out the door to meet with my aunt and uncle in Little Tokyo.
In Little Tokyo, we ate so much food. When we got there, my sister and I shared a medium-sized cup of pomegranate frozen yogurt from Pinkberry. Then, my parents went to buy some steamed buns from Yamazaki Bakery, ice cream from an ice cream truck called Stickhouse, and macarons from 'lette. And that was all in the span of about an hour. After that, we went to the Aratani Theater across the street from the Japanese Village Plaza for the Return to Myanmar: Kyaw Kyaw Naing Ensemble. This was a performance by a Burmese orchestra using traditional Burmese instruments. The difference between a Burmese orchestra and a Western orchestra is that the Burmese orchestra does not have a string section. They only have gongs, clappers, percussion, and woodwind instruments. Strings can play as solos in a Burmese orchestra whereas they (violins, viola, and cellos) are needed in Western orchestras.
After the performance, it was almost 9 o'clock and we still haven't eaten dinner so we rushed over to the Japanese Village Plaza to eat at Las Galas. I ordered the chicken ramen but I switched with my mom's sunset roll because I knew I wasn't going to finish the whole bowl of ramen. Overall, the sushi was really good, but in my opinion, the salmon that came with the sunset roll (not the sashimi) was a bit hard. I'm sure it's because I like my salmon soft but it was still good. If you ever go to Little Tokyo, check out Las Galas. It's a great place to eat at.
Anyway, after eating dinner, we all took a walk on 2nd street to get a bit of the nightlife. To be honest, there wasn't much going on, but I did notice that in the daytime (or time before the Golden Hour), there are a lot of asians wondering around (I'm not trying to be racist) but after the sun went down, it's like they all disappeared and the homeless people came out, along with smokers. After that, we all went home and I got home at around 11 pm. I worked more on some homework (watched videos on YouTube) and then went to bed at around 1 am.
Well that was it for yesterday's adventures. I will put all the links to the restaurants that I went to down below if you want to check them out. That's all from me. Hope all y'all had a great April Fools Day yesterday and thank you for reading my posts weekly. It means a lot. Alrighty now. Peace out! ✌🏼
