Memories of the past few month

"Pictures are worth 1000 words"

I just had a bit of a meltdown at work, I'm really bad at handeling stress. The past few months have been somewhat of a roller coaster ride but because of my friends... I made it through. I have to thank all of them for listening to me whine all day. Throughout this time, I learned a lot about myself... I lost a few friends and also gained a few. What's most amazing is how life plays out, there's never going to be a day where everything's "ok," and I'm finally okay with that. I've stopped trying to figure everything out and I'm learning how to concentrate on the things that are most important in life.

I have some more amazing news coming up in the near future. :)





TC friends


trying hard to be cute.






take 1


Take 2 ... eventually we gave up.




Palos Verdes - people that live there are so lucky.


Probably one of the better pictures I've ever taken of someone.





life is like this road don't you think?


Disneyland






He's such a fierce cat. :) and very photogenic

Camwhoring


do you understand what's on that monitor? I learned quiet a lot from this friend who's a developer.... I still have no clue, it's like speaking in another language


this is what a motorcycle can do to your leg. :(


Momo got the ugliest hair cut everrr.

I forgot... cat's aren't dogs.


curious


hahah i wanted to note how my family uses newspaper. Easy clean up.


fresh uni. Jealous?

This is so awesome. You can make sushi out of candy. Bought it at Mitsuwa for about $5 and made it with my friend. We didn't do such a great job because I messed up.





















First time I dyed a guys hair. I'm persuasive when I want to be so he let me dye it.


lazy mornings are always fun





this reminded me of a corn field


I love clouds.






I haven't updated for awhile so I'm doing a huge picture heavy post of the past few months of my life. I love photography, partly because it grasps memories that I sometimes freely throw away. Perhaps it's my horrible memory, but hopefully I'll at least have 2 posts a week from now on. I know my words never count. :)

Hope no one got fooled too bad since todays April Fools. The google - Topeka thing was very funny

Wakasaya - Little Tokyo

Posted by Jen Ko at 4:54 PM 0 comments Links to this post
Awhile ago I went to China town to pierce my ears and sight see because I haven't been to China town for a few years now but nothing in Chinatown appealed to my tummy so we ventured out to Little Tokyo, like always.

We were debating on Curry House, Orochon, or Shabu Shabu when we passed by Wakasaya. I saw all the pictures of their bowls and I wanted to dart right in. I did in the end always get my way so we ended up eating here. :)

Wakasaya serves seafood donburis which you can either custom make or pick one that is listed on the menu. While I was in the restroom I saw that Wakasaya is actually a restaurant chain in Tokyo so I was super excited to try because I have yet to seen a donburi restaurant!!

I have never seen a menu with so much writing in it. If you flip to the next page they have tons and tons of options.

Like Orochon they have a contest to see if you can finish their SUPER big donburi. I believe if you finish the meal is on them.

I was taking a test photo and I posted this photo for a reason.
I'm a girl that looks at a guys hands. If men are reading this, please remember to trim your fingernails like this. Guys should NOT have long fingernails. hahaha
Toro salmon don - This was actually really good. I liked it.


I custom made mine with uni, negi toro, and amaebi. The negi toro was really REALLY bad. I took a bite of it and it wasn't very fresh. As for the amaebi, it was frozen and the uni was pretty good. No complaints about the uni! For the price it was "alright," but the negi toro could have been better!

Not expensive at all, but to be quiet honest I would rather pay more for better quality. I am still willing to go again though!!
