This shit was really shot with an iPhone X ya'll lol. I fucks with this dude, proud of you Oboi Kong.
If you don't know who Raveena is, get familiar and follow her music. Dear Raveena, thank you for this one, just in time for my kind of mood, I needed this one.
I believe San Diego has the best sunset of all time!!! Well, that's only from my experience. I've watch the sunset in SF, LA, Hawaii, missed the sunset in Japan because I can't even see the sun or the moon there. I don't recall watching the sunset in Thailand or Cambodia. Playa Del Carmen as well, I can't remember the sunset. But I love running during sunset in San Diego because, just look at it! Full of different colors, like a live painting in the skies. Or cotton candy in the skies. Whatever it look like to you, it's been fucking amazing!!
Last evening we ran from La Jolla Cove to Birdrock along side the beach and the sunset kept me distracted for the most part. We ran Mission Beach last Tuesday and the sunset was more colorful than last night but I never posted those photos from Mission Beach, maybe I should.
There was a lot of photographers out there. Not too many sunbather since it gets dark a little early now and it was a bit chilly, but there was a lot of surfers though. I've been running for three years now, I've lost about 25 lbs and I'm trying to lose an additional 30 lbs. But I keep slipping! Diet is the hardest part and I have no will power. I'd tell myself to be on a diet, and I am, but once someone says "burgers" or "tacos" or what the fuck ever I'm not supposed to eat, I say "YES." Like a dog in heat, I fucked myself. Hahaha. Soo, I was supposed to eat healthy last night but we went to Shake Shack. I was pretty hungry and ordered more than I can chew. Luckily I didn't force myself to finish it all, I took the second Chili dog to go but ended up giving it to the home girl who works at Zumies UTC.
It's been a while since I visit one of my favorite restaurant, Queenstown Public House. I simply love this place because it feels like home, great people, great vibe, and most importantly, great food! For those who follow my blog or Instagram will probably find no interest in this post since you've seen the stuff I always order. But last night I had dinner with a friend and she ordered something new that I haven't post about yet, their Pot Pie. I had doubts about it but to my surprise it was really good, portion was big too. My favorite burger is no longer on the menu but no sweat, the kitchen whipped it up anyways, it's called Queenstown Fave. I also ordered my favorite appetizers, Matchstick Fries and the Fried Portobello Fries. The weather was nice and cool, traffic wasn't too bad and parked right in front. It was definitely a good dinner. Queenstown Public House definitely set the mood right with the type of lighting they used. Outdoor seating are definitely nice but nothing beats the living room, so if you're going for the first time, ask to be seated in the "living room."
Who's going!? Come through.
Product Etc coming back with the all time favorite Westside Love hat and pin. Dropping this Friday. Give them a follow on Instagram @productetc .
It's been a minute since I posted ya'll. I apologize. Due to some circumstances I kept a low profile. But I need to stay on top! Continue to shoot some new photos and update my blog with food and new music.
However, this is not new music but the video came out not too long ago. I love Miknna, became a huge fan! Very humble dudes, this is one of my favorite song from their album. They may be fairly new to some as they getting a lot of attention on Spotify and MTV. Check it out!
So I took a couple of days off from work to get my mind right and decided to meet up with a few of my friends for lunch at Shake Shack. I've had Shake Shack in Las Vegas and in Japan, they are good, but I still don't understand the hype around it. Don't get me wrong, I'm excited to have them in SD, more places for me to eat near by but 200 people lined up for this! Luckily at 1 PM on a Wednesday afternoon the line was about 15-20 minutes long. The fire alarm went off at the mall while we were in line and no one budged lol. I've had their cheese burger before, it was good, not crazyyy long line good though. I tried their Spicy Chicken sandwich this time and it was just salty and no spice. Now remember I'm not good with spicy food, but I like to eat spicy food regardless. This didn't make me sweat or had any kick in it what so ever. They might need to come up with a new name for it like "not so spicy" chicken sandwich. Oh, and they are wasteful!! I went up for a refill and they gave me a new cup instead of pouring it in my cup, that was kinda weird. Well, welcome to SD Shake Shack! I'm going back for their Shake Stack, which is the mushroom patty and beef patty. Heard it was good, but we'll see.
Everybody, okay never mind, not everybody but a lot of people on my feed were raving about this place. I love how their name starts with K's but I guess you can't spell Chicken with a K because that would be KKK, not nice. Hahaha. If I didn't know better a blood member probably opened up this restaurant haha. Okay, joking aside! New fried chicken joint to add to the fast food list, located inside 99 Ranch on Balboa Ave. Some would compare them to KFC, Popeye's, and Church's. Well, I'm not sure how to compare them because all of them are great, it will all come down to preference. However, I can compare their biscuits though! Church's Chicken has the best biscuits by far. KKC, hmmm, I say they came close, but Church's biscuits still has the throne in my book. I fucks with KKC though! Their chicken tenders, juicy! Most chicken tenders are too thin and too crunchy because of the batter but KKC chicken tenders are pretty damn good. We ordered some wings, they were cooked beautifully, great size, taste even better with hot sauce or dip them in gravy and call it a day. Fried Catfish was delicious too, Jambalaya was good, mash potatoes and gravy was good. I'd go again to try other stuff on their menu. But there is another place that I fucks with really hard that is not a fried chicken joint, Jollibee. Yes that's right, Jollibee, I'm not a fan of Jollibee in general but their Spicy Fried Chicken is the best!!!! Hahaha. Try them out, have fun with it! Enjoy food!
I slept on these photos, these photos are from this past weekend at Sugar & Scribe La Jolla. Every month we wake up super early for Cars & Coffee La Jolla at The Lot, located directly across from Sugar & Scribe. And I made it our tradition to have breakfast together after looking at some really cool cars. It was Willy Wonka day, they offered some really bright and colorful coffee to celebrate. Carlo from San Francisco was in town for a wedding, homeboy was crazy for waking up that early after a 3 hour nap from the wedding lol. He had a long night. Without further ado, lets go straight to the photos. Sorry, no car post, just food.
I came across some realllly sweet but delicious donuts recently but unfortunately it's not available all the time. Why? Because they are home made and not from a doughnut shop. My coworker Stephanie makes them. She passed them out at work one time and offered me one. I took it, just because she doesn't offer me treats that often and this was one of those rare moments and I'm all about moments. It's like the universe wanted me to have these. So I took it back to my desk thinking it's just going to be "good." But no, my eyes opened wide at first bite and my taste buds was going crazy and my brain didn't know how to handle it so like Tourette's Syndrome I blurted out a lot of curse words. Now this is the kind of shit I search for. The shit that blows your mind away, the shit that makes you wet or hard depending on your gender haha. Motherfucker! It's just really that good!! It's sweet, very fluffy, soooo soft and easy on your tongue. Tasted like Churros to me. I love churros!
I made a new friend recently, an artist. One of the many things I've learned about her is that she loves doughnuts. At the time she had an art show coming up, so I thought it would be nice to bring her some doughnuts to her art show. I ordered a dozen from Stephanie and she did not disappoint. Stephanie had the doughnuts in a custom box. I've heard people said it tasted like Lemon, then Pumpkin Spice, others say its Cinnamon, they couldn't figure it out so they just called it Magic Doughnuts. I told my friend Jason Huggins about and he was curious and wanted to try it. Well, I ordered another dozen from Stephanie and once again she put them in a customized box with 5&A Dime written on it. It was Jason's birthday recently so I paid him a visit and delivered these magic Doughnuts to him. Well he loved them!
My Sunday is off to a great start. Well, it would've been much better if I woke up early to run with my brother and cousin but I guess not running is a great thing. Although I run a lot but I don't always love to. I woke up early this morning to wash the whip for an Integra car meet at Ski Beach. I normally don't like to go to these car meets for numbers of reason, and all the reasons are fuckboys hahaha.
Anyways, After hanging out with some of the homies at the meet I headed out to Moniker to get some blogging done, then I remembered about a new coffee shop near Crown Point called The Grounds bean bar. I saw my homegirl posting it on her Instagram and came to find out, she owns it!! Beautiful new spot, featuring all local roasters such as James Coffee Co., Virtuoso/Make Good Coffee Co. You would not believe the amount of girls that come here. If I didn't know better, I would think this is an all girl coffee shop. I ordered an Iced Tea, then Brynn of The Grounds bean bar got carried away and showered me with love, two toast, three drinks. I shouldn't have came alone. I've never had an Avocado toast before, always wanted to try it. I've never seen an Avocado Toast as pretty as this place though. This could be my new spot to hang out!! I still love Moniker oh so much though, but it gets super busy in there. The Grounds bean bar has this delicious lemonade on nitro so I'll definitely be coming back for sure! You guys/gals should definitely come check this place out and it's really close to the beach. In between Crown Point and Pacific Beach.
Congrats Brynn! Thank you so much for the all the good stuff! I love this place!

Updates! My friends came and we got more food!!
Raveena must be a super new artist since she only has 800 followers on Instagram and actually replying to my DM about her music. My brother texted me if I've heard of her, said she has a voice of an angel. Well he wasn't lying. I LOVE her music. Check it out.
Just a quick little blog post about last night. Nothing new about Lolita's Taco Shop. I think everyone in SD has been there once or frequently visits since its top of the list for most locals. My good friend David organized a car meet for his friend Takayuki visiting from Japan and the turn out was quite of a surprised. A lot of people showed up with their cars and there were no bullshit last night. Everyone was respectful and we had a great time. Thanks to everyone that showed up, we had a great time with you and seeing familiar faces that I haven't seen in a long time since I've been lurking in the shadows (as some would say). Good job David, great fucking meet!
We took Takayuki and his wife to Lolita's so they can have Mexican food for the first fucking time!! How exciting is that!? I think I'm the only one excited about it haha, I get excited about food! Took some pictures of the cars I loved, I wish I took some more but some of them were in the dark. All the photos on the blog are taken with my iPhone 7 unless I label them as Film photos from my Canon Ae-1.
