day off

T-shirt + skirt combo, yeah!

Hey, y'all! I hope your week is going well. :) Yesterday, I met up with my friend and photographer Emma, and Alisa, to go to Rowland Heights and get some dim sum, which turned into getting boba and other tasty treats in the form of pastries!

After dim sum, which was quick, and good, and cheap just like dim sum should be, we drove a few blocks over to Half and Half, this super cute boba joint. Their cups are chubby little things, as you can see from the pictures below. Also, the inside is nicely decorated, with lampposts and flower boxes.

Then we stopped by this place that just opened up (there's a location in Irvine, too). It's this amazing bakery/cafe called 85C (or 85 degrees Celsius). The breads and pastries are perfect; delicious and flavorful and soft. Some reminded me of Filipino pastries I'd had before. So tasty! I got a cheese danish, an almond sponge cake, taro bread, and a chocolate chip bowl, which was my favorite for sure. There's apparently always a huge line that forms, but it moves quickly. You get a tray and fill it up with pastries and then they bag them for you and put 'em in a box. It's like a little cafeteria line. I'm not a coffee drinker but I hear that the Sea Salt Iced Coffee is super. If you live in the area or are visiting, I'd say you should scope it out! It's not badly priced either! Mmm, carbs. :)
