~Bubble U {Review}~

 ENGLISH      ESPAÑOL

Yesterday looked so pretty from my balcony that it gave me the boost I needed to complete my chores, study Chinese, and practice using our filming equipment.

Later on I went out to one of my favorite boba spots in Chinatown.

I don't practice my Mandarin with the shop owners in Chinatown because the majority of them speak Cantonese. The younger generations that are my age range hang out it San Gabriel / Alhambra spots. However, I get shy and end up ordering stuff in English. ;___; It's also a little drive from Downtown and I was craving Bubble U!  

Bubble U opened about two years ago and it attracts a lot of youth that still live in this antique area. The ambience makes you feel like you're sitting in a Chinese drama (and they play shows on one of their TV's!) The music is light / comforting and the staff has a welcoming / homely energy.

When you order, the staff asks the level of sweetness for your drink and what kind of sweetener you'd like to use. My go-to sweetener is honey. A lot of places don't give enough TLC to their boba pearls but Bubble U makes them just right! The milk tea itself is perfect. My favorite drink is Rose Milk Tea. Gregorio's favorite is Honey Lavender Milk Tea. They also sell delicious macarons that I forgot to take a photo of. :< (next time!)

The Loop | La Rueda

 ENGLISH      ESPAÑOL

Life has a way of seeming so short yet ageless at the same time. Our mentalities don't change much but we physically begin to change with time. Think of all the days you've lived and how much you've forgotten. A lot of it is just routine and that's something I don't like living with.
Maybe it's a Libra thing, but I've always been messy and unorganized. The moment I fall into routine is the moment my life feels like it's hit a dead end. I can be a creature of habit if everything I do is something I find passion in.
I'm in my mid-twenties and last week was when I began a "routine" of keeping track of chores. No more barrels of laundry, sink full of dirty dishes. Gregorio and I switch up throughout the week on who does what (he's a Libra too) and we've been getting the hang of it. As far as our daily tasks, we don't like to stay home and watch TV. It's a bad habit we let ourselves get sucked into but when your own filming company gives you a huge wake-up call, you have to get off that couch and start moving!
Although we no longer do photography / videographer services for celebrities and influencers I still love to take photos of everything. It's my way of reminding myself about the little pleasures in life that should make anyone happy.


What are some of the things you love to do that get you out of your routine?
