Koreatown LA: Desserts, Desserts, & More Desserts!
One of my East Coast friends is flying to LA this summer and staying in Koreatown. Since I'm a San Diegan that sometimes heads up to LA on weekends, she asked me what to eat and where to go when visiting K-Town. Being that we've got a whole bunch of K-Entertainment fans on here, I figured it might be useful to list places for ALL of you - so if and when you're in California, you know where to visit to try some delicious food. I figured I'd start off with a card dedicated to some of my all-time favorite Koreatown desserts! Bingsu @ Cafe Heyri 755 S Hobart Blvd. Los Angeles, CA 90005 There's plenty of places to get Korean-style shaved ice in Koreatown, but none of them have the variety of Cafe Heyri. There's traditional red bean (pat) bingsu, melon, green tea, coffee, chocolate, and - my personal favorite - seasonal fruit (pictured above)! Macaron Ice Cream @ HAUS by Coffee Hunter 3826 W 6th St. Los Angeles, CA 90020 A growing trend in dessert cafes is the ice cream macaron - an ice cream sandwich made by layering ice cream between two very big macaron shells. Not only is HAUS' version my absolute favorite, but if you're a K-Pop fan, this cafe's got massive flat-screen TVs that play all your favorite music videos while you eat! Bungeoppang @ Okrumong 3801 W 6th St. Los Angeles, CA 90020 Not only is Okrumong famous for its incredible take on traditional patbingsu, but it's also one of the few places in Koreatown where you can get a basket fresh bungeoppang - fish-shaped waffle-like breads filled with red bean - to share with friends! Animal Donuts @ Fantastic Donuts 1101 S Vermont Ave. Los Angeles, CA 90006 You can read a little bit more about these adorable donuts here, but Fantastic Donuts has become pretty Instagram popular for their cute animal and character donut designs. (However, I'd definitely also recommend their cereal-topped ones. The Cinnamon Toast Crunch one almost tastes like a churro!) Honeycomb Ice Cream @ Honeymee 3377 Wilshire Blvd. Suite 116, Los Angeles, CA 90010 I was telling my fellow So.Cal foodie @hmfong that I've never been able to check out Honeymee personally. Why? Because every time I'm in the neighborhood, there's a huge line of customers! How's that for a testament about how locals feel about this simply vanilla soft-serve topped with liquid honey and a generous REAL honeycomb on top? Mochi Ice Cream @ Mikawaya 118 Japanese Village Plaza Mall, Los Angeles, CA 90012 So I'm cheating and throwing in a Little Tokyo wild card - Mikawaya! Chances are, if you've ever had store bought mochi ice cream, it was made by the Mikawaya company. But LA is the only place where you can visit its shop and order some pretty unique mochi ice cream flavors, including plum wine, black sesame, and mint chocolate chip! So which one of these would you be down to try? Have any of you visited Koreatown and have other recommendations? Let me know in the comments below, and for more #FOODPORN, follow my brand new foodie collection #FOODPORN!
Carbon Wheels Clincher
Carbon Wheels Clincher Bike wheels of quality can change the wheels from sluggish and laborious to effortless and thrilling. The road wheelsets come in different forms like a clincher, tubular and tubeless with matching tires. There are clincher and tubeless wheelsets. A clincher in any wheel that is suitable with non-tubular tires. The word clincher gets its origin from the tires as they clinch to the rim of the wheel along with a bead of hard rubber. Generally, bicycle rims are clincher rims to be used with clincher tires. These tires possess a wire or fiber bead that interlocks with flanges in the rim. A segregated airtight inner tube confined by the rim supports the tire carcass and manages the bead lock. In case the inner part of the rim where the inner tube fits have spokes, holes should be concealed by a rim tape or strip which is made from rubber, cloth, or tough plastic. This safeguards the inner tube. Carbon wheels are both carbon fiber and aluminum. History In 1998 Lew Composites brought into being the first full-carbon clincher rim. Company owner Paul Lew an enthusiastic triathlete desired the same properties of weight savings and aerodynamics that a carbon tubular could offer but through ease and versatility of a clincher. Carbon Wheels Clincher has only a decade ago made the presence felt in the market. The new and old brands have entered the market offering rim depth, weights, and prices. The rim variants now come with a clincher, tubular and tubeless tires accompanied by rim brakes and disc brakes. Upgrading to carbon clincher wheels Upgrading the wheels is a popular trend among riders. Indeed, high-quality tires can effectively improve bike ride. Upgrading can also lead to a decrease in weight and better dependability. Deep-section rims help you move faster. Most bikers understand that aerodynamic is more important compared to weight. The choice lies between carbon wheels clincher, tubular, or tubeless and corresponding tires. Wheels indeed gain from human touch. Hand constructed wheels are still better than those built totally by machine. Consider the following factors for this. · Deepness-suited to rim-the principle states that deeper the wheel the better it is for aero performance. However, steep climb and yaw angle are variability's that differ to this principle. Another factor of influence is the weight of the rider and the quantum of watts produced when plying on a flat and smooth surface. In case the wheels are very deep for your weight the rider's competence to guide and maneuverability will be affected. · Wideness- wider rim induces a more satisfying ride. Wider rims compute a few millimeters to the width of the tire. Ensure that the dimensions of fork, seat-say and chain stay authorization, so the new wheel and tire collection fits the bike. · Unity-most road bikes are comparatively constant as regards dimensions of most bikes. With coming of disc brakes has supplemented a variety to hub dimensions in the bike industry. Thus, the carbon clincher wheels you decide to buy is compatible with the bike we possess. · Quantum in speeds-generally wheels possess compatible hub cassettes. However, inspect if the wheel you choose fits the cassette body. The quality of the carbon clincher wheel will decide its lasting property and comprehensive quality of the wheelset. The endurance of the rim, hub, and spoke are important factors. Generally, the hubs in carbon clinchers are of superior quality and lasting. The spokes are not costly and replace is easy.

The Bernina Railway built the Bernina line between 1908 and 1910, and then operated it independently until the 1940s, when the Rhaetian Railway took it over. The Bernina Express uses gradients of 7% to negotiate the difference in height of about 1800 meters (5.900 ft) from the summit at Ospizio Bernina to Tirano. 9. Chemin de Fer de La Mure, France The Chemin de Fer de La Mure (the Mure railway) is a tourist railway in the department Isère near the city of Grenoble, France.

Tokyo Travel: A Day In Harajuku
Back in February I spent a few days in Tokyo. Here's a look into my day spent in Harajuku :) It all started at the Meiji Shrine in Yoyogi Park. I mistakenly took the subway from my Airbnb to Harajuku in Tokyo's famous rush hour. The train was absolutely packed and there were men working for the station who helped show people on. Luckily, I grabbed a good spot and was able to hop on and off easily without being squished. I then took a peaceful walk through the nearly deserted paths leading to the shrine. I was able to walk around, catching glimpses of monks rushing around, and listen to some chanting. I got myself a talisman for peace of mind and headed back into the bustling city. I then took a loooooong walk to the best latte I've ever had. The cafe is called Streamer Coffee Co. and their military latte is the best thing that has ever happened to me. It contains chocolate, green tea, while chocolate, and espresso. I know that sounds like a total mess but the flavors meshed perfectly! I was able to hang out there for a while, using their wifi and reading the book I brought with me. Once I felt ready to leave, I headed to Number Sugar. This tiny shop sells handmade caramels in all different flavors. You can buy adorable box sets and the lovely girls working there will be sure you get exactly what you want. They aren't even that expensive which is awesome! It was about $0.70 for each piece (twice the size of the photo, I had already eaten most of it haha!) I got vanilla caramel and almond caramel! After that I went to Kiddy Land where I went to each of the 4 stories trying not to buy everything that had Totoro on it. I was pretty successful and only got myself a Spirited Away mug, though I did buy quite a few presents for friends and family :) From there I ventured down Harajuku's most famous street filled with places selling crepes, crazy Japanese fashion, and tons of toys. It is here that I found my true love. I really love takoyaki. They're just batter, onions, pickled ginger, and squid (tako in Japanese) fried in a special pan and covered in a mayo-sauce, fish flakes, and some spices. They are HEAVENLY. This man made works at Koi-Tako (aka Love Squid) and made me some perrrrrfect Kimchi Takoyaki (yeah I know, why Kimchi in Japan???) But then it got weird... You can't see it really well in the photo, but they put GOLDEN GLITTER on my takoyaki. Why you ask? I DON'T KNOW. I ate it though, and didn't die. So, there's that. I grabbed a sakura green tea (oi ocha is the best bottled tea EVER) and headed back towards my home in Shinjuku. I'd give yourself a solid 2-3 hours to take Harajuku in at a slow pace. It's worth it!
