sticky rice

February 24, 2011

one of my favorite things to eat in thailand and laos was the sticky rice, i've had it when i lived at home but never learned how to make it. when my aunt came last week she taught me and i've successfully made some on my own! it's so easy — maybe i'll make a step by step guide.

hsi lai temple

February 16, 2011

my mom, aunt and cousin were in town this weekend and they wanted to check out hsi lai temple in hacienda heights. the place was busy with people celebrating the new year and they had some sort of ceremony too... but i didn't really understand. the temple is huge and you feel like your in another world if you're looking for a cultural experience in the los angeles area.
