weekly 3.14

March 14, 2011

Dedicating Music Monday to Lykke Li whom I saw at the El Rey theater last Wednesday. Her improvisation and apparent love for music made her so enjoyable to watch. She pleasantly surprised me by performing every 'old' song I was hoping to hear with undeniable energy and convincing me that her darker new album is actually more amazing than I initially thought.

Did you know that almost everytime you ask a Vietnamese lady where to get the best pho, she'll say 'her kitchen'. I'm haphazard in the kitchen, so I tend not to go there. But when I want pho, I go to Thanh Long in Westminster. It's clean, fast, and tastes most like my mom's pho.

Wewood watch.

  10. My mom makes fabulous pho! Also, when I go to visit my grandma and dad's side of the family in San Jose, CA, I always love going to the little local pho and sandwich shops. Always so delicious and cheap! I love Lykke Li, you're so lucky to have gotten to see her! Also that room picture is amazing. I love the shelves!

    and I will definitely have to hit up that PHO spot when the cash flow gets nice.

  16. these photos are all so greeeeeat. I saved the bedroom/office one. It's such a neat layout. *le sigh

  17. Love these Rachel. Yes! My mom does make the best pho. It must be the good ol' lovin she puts into it. She hates it that I'm the only Vietnamese girl who won't use fish sauce or Siracha though...

    Heard the Lykke Li concert was sold out in LA. Must have been rad! You know, it took me the longest time to tell people I like her music because I could not pronounce her name? Look-eh-lee. Who knew? :)
