The lens is huge! And heavy, haha.
To be honest, I'm still a little timid to use my new toy since there is so much I don't know and need to learn! However, I'm slowly getting more comfortable with it. I've bought it out a couple of times so far just so I can get more familiar with it. (I also need a camera bag; I'm thinking of making my own, and I'm also thinking of getting a pancake lens so that it'll be easier for me to carry around.)
Sexy Girl. Shrimp tempura and jalapeno, topped with mango.
Sunrise on Second Street. Spicy shrimp and crab, topped with tuna.
They were having a special of 6 rolls for only $30 (from a select menu). Sorry I couldn't fit it all into one pic, keke.
Clockwise from top right: Sexy Girl, Jaws Special, Sunrise on Second Street, Crunchy Roll, Lynn Special.
Since I'm still new, awkward and shy with my camera, I get the occasional accidental shots like these below, hehe.
My JewelMint Lucky Charms necklace (it's currently on sale for only $9!). Now will you believe me when I say I'm medium-tanned and not light skinned? lol
My Coach bag (from Desert Hills Premium Outlets), my jacket, my pink wallet and my Canon ELPH camera.
Yesterday was my friend's birthday so we spent the day hanging out in downtown Long Beach, near The Pike and the light house at the harbor. This area has a lot of memories for me, since I used to go there often for dinners, clubs, bike riding, etc (but I prefer it more at night, hehe).
A view of Shoreline Village. I went here a lot as a kid, hehe.
Is anyone else watching The Great Food Truck Race on The Food Network? (My favorite channel, by the way, along with the Cooking Channel!) This is actually the same location where they filmed the first episode of the current season. (I'm rooting for Seoul Sausage to win! Those boys crack me up. "Have you heard of K-Pop? We're Korean pop artists in America. We're doing a cooking competition." lol oops, sorry for digressing!)
We had dinner at Star BBQ or Byul Dae Po 별 대 포, since the birthday girl was craving for all-you-can-eat (AYCE) Korean BBQ. We were starving and after a bit of waiting, we immediately devoured plates after plates of meat (beef brisket or chadol 차돌, bulgogi 불거기, samgyupsal 삼겹살, spicy samgyupsal 매운 삼겹살, and kalbi 갈비), side dishes 반찬, steamed egg bowls and kimchi jiggae 김치 찌개. Stuffed! There's also a small frozen yogurt machine in the restaurant so I had small, dainty little cups of that too. Not bad for $16 per person, right?
The restaurant looks like a barn from the outside, but it has nicely lit entrances to the parking lots.
I think some of my future posts will contain a mix of photos taken from both my DSLR and my point-and-shoot, until I get better at using my new camera, so please bear with me. =)
How was your weekend?
