626 Night Market!!! Held at the Pasadena City Hall –
There were 50+ food trucks serving everything from boba to stinky tofu. Weirdest comment of the night was from a random [white] passerby complaining, “There’s too much Asian food here.”
Um, it’s an Asian night market. Although I did see Yogurtland and the Grilled Cheese Truck so I assume the organizers anticipated that not everyone would want to stuff themselves with dumplings, pork belly, and dragon whiskers.
I probably won’t be making a trip to Asia anytime soon, so cheers to next month’s 夜市!
I’ve had a couple of friends react with shock and pity upon entering my apartment as it used to look like a cell from the Bridgeport Asylum. I tell people I’m a minimalist but really I’m just too cheap to invest in decor. But over the year I’ve acquired several odds and ends to make my tiny studio a little more inviting.
This being LA, even at night it’s bright enough to keep a cat awake, hence the necessary window covering.
Gifted necklace from India, and Lunar New Year pictures from a free Chinatown calendar.
Hook organizer I found on the sidewalk.
Easier to find my jewelry this way.
My landlord was amused by this collection.
