They say life is what you make it; so I'm choosing to fill mine with family, friends, food, and fun

The best thing about this restaurant is the fact that they serve vegan, vegetarian and gluten free options even with their desserts πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘ Guilt free but totally fulfilling, we devoured the #squashpie to cap off our meal 😍 It definitely had the essence of pumpkin pie but with a uniquely smoother texture and more intense aroma. The spices were quite potent and seemed to sting our tongues with its strength. The coconut whipped cream perfectly counteracted it though and gave a lasting sweet finish. My overall rating of this place would have to be 5/5 stars🌟

I can't forget to mention where @michaeljeremiahkemp and I ate on Valentine's❣️ #TrueFoodKitchen in #Pasadena- Eat there, trust me you won't regret it. 
To begin my anecdote about our experience here, let me extend an apology to my boyfriend for my gruff attitude at the start of our journey. Even though I was so grumpy when Michael woke me up and urged I get ready, I was reluctant and truthfully a bit resentful he wouldn't let me sleep in. With some coaxing and a few words of encouragement, he eventually convinced me to venture out on this Hallmark holiday. Sluggish to start, I miraculously managed to shower and get dressed with just enough time for us to make our reservation if we booked it. We didn't account for SoCal traffic however, and we were delayed 30 minutes anyways πŸ˜‘ luckily we notified them of the change in our ETA and saved our spot πŸ‘Œ
Review Time: So we finally make it to our destination, and to our surprise we realize our reservation wasn't necessary. There is ample seating here and several areas to accommodate big and small parties alike indoors and out. We chose to sit inside by the kitchen which had clear panes that allowed us to look inside as the chefs prepared the food. Our server, Daniela (super nice btw), explained the restaurant's mission and helped us deduce from the menu's options for a meal that would satisfy our eager appetite. 
We ordered the #medicineman and #pomegranatechialimeade for our drinks. Refreshing af! Then ate the #wildcaughtalbacoretataki and #kaleguacamole appetizers. The flavors of those simply prepared dishes were so prominent. Every ingredient in the tataki shined through without overpowering another, it was perfectly balanced. As for the guac, I've never been a fan of kale, but let me tell you I could eat that dish every day!! Who knew grapefruit would be so perfect in guac?! The consistency was sublime especially with the crunch of those pita chips πŸ™ŒπŸ’―Finally the main courses, we split the #housemadechickensausagepizza and #turkeyburger. All I can say is wow! Repeated element sorry but damn, those flavors! The integrity of the ingredients were so pure, we scraped every plate clean πŸ˜‹

Yeah, so I'm 1000% certain I have the best #everydayvalentine πŸ’• Prior to and on Valentine's Day, @michaeljeremiahkemp bestowed me with 'little' tokens of affection. First, he presented me with that gorgeous bouquet of #whiteroses and the ultimate chocolate bar 😱 If you can't manage to read the label, that is 4 lbs worth of #darkchocolate 🍫! ! I honestly wasn't expecting anything else, but of course when the 14th came along... He surprised me with a lunch date and these bits and bobs 😭 Thank you so much Bubs, you are literally the most incredible man and boyfriend πŸ’˜ 
You make an effort every single day to show me how much you love me, from buying me presents to the little things like: rubbing my lower back for what seems like hours on end, coming back to my door to give me one more sweet embrace or small peck before you finally leave, letting me make jokes at your expense, or just driving me to work when it's raining. Everything you do embodies what love is, and I am beyond lucky to call you mine 😘

Second dessert exists in some countries... Maybe? Well I got these for my parents, but I did snag a nibble or two hehe. Colds for me are nothing, but food is everything 😘

Rainy (and sick) days aren't complete without a little dessert and maybe more than one kind depending on how you roll lol 😜 Congestion and milk products are probably two of the worst things to combine, but with my lactose intolerance this goes from manageable hindrance to unnecessary tribulation. My love for milk will not be swayed despite this, so I take it with no regrets. I can't wait for their newest location to open in West Covina.

I might've been sick and congested last week, but thankfully I retained my sense of taste πŸ˜‹πŸ’¦ The subtle spice and bubbling heat of this tasty #lambhotsoup from #boilingpoint helped soothe my poor sinuses and ravenous appetite so much that I'm still daydreaming about how satisfying it was to devour each bite smothered with my savory/spicy concoction of a dipping sauce 😍 Hearty but not too overly indulgent, this meal is jam packed veggies and numerous kinds of protein- Just what the doctor ordered, right? πŸ˜‰ Obviously eating it with rice is somewhat redundant especially considering there's noodles hidden underneath this glorious ensemble of a soup... but hey! I'm Pinay for crying out loud! HAHA 🀣

Even though I was incredibly satisfied with my own dish, I couldn't help but notice the light and citrusy aroma of the bf's #pomelohotsoup as well. And rightfully so! As soon as a humble spoonful of this #taiwanesehotpot touched my tongue, I was shook! The broth was so refreshing that I could sense my mouth watering for another taste. It's definitely something to order at least once if you ever eat here. However if these two aren't to your liking, there's a good selection of other soup bases and toppings that might fit your fancy instead. Try some of their simple but delectable ice-cold teas, milk teas, or juice to wash it all down and enjoy the ultimate rainy or sick day meal πŸ‘Œ βœ‹οΈ Fair warning though 🀚 
The wait can be a tad unbearable at times and seating tends to be pretty compacted in most locations. But some bites are worth waiting for, aren't they?

I am unbelievably ecstatic over the final result of my latest #diyroomdecor πŸ˜„πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘ I spent less than $20 for this entire project, can you believe it?? A majority of the budget was spent on the rock fillers (bought previously on clearance) and the lantern which was $12.99 from @target. The fake succulents were from @daiso_usa the @99centsonly. I think I might've found my calling hehe... So if any of y'all need an interior designer, holla at ya girl πŸ˜‰

Currently listening (and loving) the acoustic version of Trevor Wesley's 'Chivalry Is Dead' 🎢 It seems so befitting that this song popped in my playlist while I take in the fragrant aroma and beauty of this rose bouquet @michaeljeremiahkemp presented me with for no apparent reason πŸ˜˜πŸ’

Happy birthday best friend!! ☺️ Welcome to the 25 team!! From this point in your life, you're gonna face many obstacles that will distinguish your passion from preferences, redefine your morals/principles, and determine who and what will sustain your happiness. While you may be able to choose from some, others will be chosen for you... it may suck but a lot of it will be blessings in disguise- so don't lose hope, it'll all work out. Above all, I just want to remind you that I will always be here by your side to lend an ear or shoulder or give sound advice whenever you need it. I love you and thank you for your friendship πŸ‘― Now let's celebrate haha πŸŽ‚πŸŽπŸŽ‰πŸ»
