It’s actually Wednesday, March 3rd today.  I’m going to brush the dust of the blog and chronicle some of my quake thoughts and such.  I’ll be backdating the posts.  Watching the news and talking to people have really started to get to me the past couple of days.  I hope that by writing some of this down I can purge and somehow make some sense of things.


Awesome. Enough said.

5 Cool Things About Chile

16 Jun

I think I spend a lot of time lamenting the things I don’t have access to living here.  I thought it was high time I used some blog space talking about some of the positives about living down here.  So with no further ado…

5 Cool Things About Chile

  1. They have beer on tap at the food court in the mall. ^__^  I’m sure may more woman could convince their SOs to go shopping with them stateside if malls had beer.
  2. On a Friday of a holiday weekend… young people gather in these chilean “pojangmacha” type bars in the neighborhood w/cheap plastic outdoor furniture and start partying at around 3 in the afternoon. w00t~ (Pojangmacha are small street vender/cafe type places w/cheap patio furniture that sell cheap food/alcohol in Korea.)
  3. The seafood and fresh veggies… oh I can sing the praises of the cheap fresh seafood and fruits and veggies. I think it’s because they have a really short farm to market time frame. If you pick the right days to go to the markets.. you can get stuff that is barely a day old. Interestingly all of the very top grade fruits and veggies aren’t sold to Chileans. I don’t think they’d pay the prices.. it all gets exported. Which explains all the really good Chilean fruit in Costco. lolempann
  4. The ski slopes are a 1 hour drive and the beach is 1 hr 15min away.  It’s very similar in that way to Los Angeles.  It’s great.  Feel like the beach? No problem!  Want to hit the slopes? It’s just a hop skip and jump away.  Not to mention that the ski resorts don’t have any trees for you to accidently run into.
  5. Empanadas… OHHH EMPANADAS~~~  MMmmmmm  My personal favorites are the razor clam/cheese ones.  Good Lordy these are good.  ‘Nuf said.

This made me laugh today~

Why I’ve been MIA

4 May

Hello everyone!  So I’ve been MIA because I took a 1 month trip to Los Angeles to be the Maid of Honor at my best friend’s wedding and visit family.  I will blog about that another day.  In the meanwhile it’s suddenly gone from late summer directly to early winter here in Santiago.  I swear this country has only 2 seasons… (1) Warm, (2) Cold and smoggy  >__<;;

Here are some photos from this weekend:

hmmm I'm looking a little flushed >_<

These were taken at Lamu Lounge.

Did you get your Green on?
