03.14.13: One step forward, 2 steps back
Have you ever heard of the phrase “don’t be a victim of the past?” I know some of us tries with all our might not to be one, or at least I know I have been trying for the past years. But in some rare cases like yesterday, it’s hard not to look back and feel like I am being choked by my past. Past is such a big word for me, it embodies my entire high school life. They say if it’s something good, it becomes a memory otherwise it’s your “past”. One of the beautiful things that happened from my distraught yesterday was that as I relieve my past, I realized WHY this page exists, and WHERE these words are coming from. WHO hurt me,and the people that were there to pick me up. WHAT kept me strong all these times and the reason why I I love talking about life. That tiny bit of hope that I am holding on to, the satisfying feeling of being able to inspire someone. It means the world to me everytime someone tells me that I have touched your life in some way through my words. I have recently made an account on ask.fm. You all know what it’s for, but unlike what happened to Formspring before,where it became a complete war zone because of all the bashers, I want that account to highlight everything about life. So I hope to see you all here —- http://ask.fm/RiannaGalvez
We go to Virginia for 2 reasons – our future and FOOD! For our Thursdate, we had lunch in Uncle Lieu’s Hotpot. I love hotpot, so I had high hopes when I entered the restaurant.
Since it’s my first hotpot in the states,we’ve decided to get half spicy and half not spicy..wish they had a better name for it cause it sounded ridiculous when I typed it. Ha!
Anyway, I ordered woodear mushroom and lobster balls cause they’re my favorites while ordered fishballs and pork belly! YUMMS
Most chinese restaurants in MD don’t offer chicken feet! Boo. So we order it everytime it’s on the menu. YUMMS!
(a) Dan Dan Noodle – his favorite! Not a fan but according to him it’s better than Pei Wei’s (well duhh of course, Uncle Lieu is an authentic Chinese restaurant! haha)
(b) Bang Bang Chicken – I am whatever percent Chinese but I don’t understand the double worded names lol. Anyway, I got curious cause it’s the first time that I’ve heard of this so I gave it a try. Big mistake for me, not a fan of that strong black vinegary taste. So not for me.. the boyf on the other hand found a new love though! The BANG BANG!
(c) Spicy Wonton – finally….something that would satisfy me…NOT! I wish it wasn’t submerged in a spicy and hot sauce! 😐
So only one of us truly enjoyed our lunch. Good thing they serve their fortune cookie with oranges, that made me smile! haha 🙂
Since we do not want to be in a jam because of rush hour, we decided to kill time in Sweet Berry, the perfect place to keep me sane!
Froyo x Gelato x Milk Tea x Crepe x Milk Shake!!! All in one cutesy store!!! ❤
Strawberry Nutella Crepe x Hazelnut and Nutella Gelato… yumms!
And as if a cup of gelato was not enough, I’ve decided to take this baby with me as we drive to one of the shopping centers in Fairfax, VA!
Nutella and Vanilla gelato shake! Soooo good ❤
I’ve always wanted to wear this skirt but since it looks short when I walk so I figured my trusty tights would save the day..again 🙂
