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!)

Ayer el día se veía tan bonito desde mi balcón que me dio el impulso que necesitaba para completar mis tareas, estudiar chino y practicar el uso de nuestro equipo de filmación.
Más tarde, salí a uno de mis lugares favoritos de boba en Chinatown.
