The City Of Angels


Los Angeles, United States

I love flights to Los Angeles because the first trip that I did last year July was so great with super awesome company. It was not an easy feat to visit Grand Canyon and Las Vegas but we did it. It must be one of the best trips ever in my flying memories. This is my second time to Los Angeles and I am so glad that I have great company for this trip too. We rented a 7 seater SUV for one day and embarked on our road trip to visit the Hollywood Sign and Santa Monica.

We started our day with breakfast at IHOP (International House of Pancakes). IHOP offers different styles of pancakes such as chocolate chip, strawberry banana and new york cheesecake pancakes, etc but the original pancake is still my all-time favorite. There is also syrups of several different flavors like old fashioned, blueberry, strawberry and peanut pecan to choose from. If you like to have good, affordable and some big portion american breakfast, IHOP is the place!

I like to go out in a big group cos it means bigger fun! it feels more….Togetherness! The group includes Cassandra, Sulwyn, Rendy, Kelvin, Natalie and Gwen. The driver is none other than the “bitchy mama” in our group, Kelvin! I really appreciate the task of the driver cos it can be so tiring to drive on the road for the whole day. And of cos a road trip will never be possible without a driver. This bitchy mama didn’t allow anyone to sleep on the car cos he will bitch, bitch and bitch if he/she dares to doze off. I was constantly battling against the Zzz monster if not will kena bitch. Haha.. It was so tough because the time difference between Los Angeles and Singapore is freaking 15 hours. While I was having my breakfast in the States, everyone in Singapore is snoozing away. Poor thing, right?

We then went our own way to walk around the shopping districts. The weather was pleasant and it was a nice walk around the city.

When dusk fell, it was time to say goodbye to Santa Monica and we headed back to the hotel. An awesome trip! And I look forward to the next one… Till then… 🙂

  • Hi Irene,

    I really enjoy reading your travelogue. I have been reading it for a while and i always look at the pictures over and over again because unlike you, i never got a chance to leave Singapore. I always wondered what it was like outside this garden city and tho im 20 this year, i never got a chance to see how the world looked like outside of Singapore. Thankfully, i chanced upon this blog a while ago and ever since then, i always came online just to see if you had any more new stories to share. And, i loved your story on the little children in Myanmar, they are really adorable. its heartening to see how simple gestures can make them feel so contented. It makes us reflect on how fortunate we really are.

    Are you currently away thats why you are not blogging? sigh. i really hope you can blog soon because i look forward to your experiences.

    wherever you are, take care 🙂 hope to hear from you soon!

    • Hi Alison,

      Thanks so much for visiting! I can take a few hours to complete a post and it is really nice to know that there are people reading my blog. 🙂 Hahaha… There are times I thought I am the only one reading my blog. My first time on an airplane was when I was 18 years old and I bought that air tix with my part time pay. The only reason why I can travel now is because of my job. I won’t be traveling like this if not my job and I am grateful for it. The Myanmar volunteering trip is the most meaningful trip I have done and I will encourage you to join the overseas volunteering trips in your school if there is. I have just updated my blog with my most recent trip to Yosemite. I hope you enjoy it. Take care too! 🙂
