Where did summer go? I blinked and it was gone...I spent most of my summer busy on my internship in LA. The 3-hour (at least!) commute everyday was something that I was definitely not used to, other than that I had a great time interning and learning new stuff!
I went to Seattle last Saturday with KL. The two of us haven't had a proper vacation since...hmmm? Ever? :) This post is going to be filled with pictures, so be prepared!
Seattle by night, as seen from the ferry that KL and I took on our way to Bainbridge Island:
Morning on Bainbridge..KL and I were ecstatic to discover that blackberries and apples were growing all over the island!
What's a trip to Seattle without a visit to Pike Place Market?
The very first Starbucks store..it was crowded crowded crowded and the baristas were throwing the customers' cups over to the brewing station once the order was taken. They dropped my cup... -_-;;
Anyone knows why there's a pig in Starbucks?
Speaking of pigs, I made it a point to hunt down the Maximus Minimus food truck after seeing a feature on it on TV. The first thing that I saw as I turned a corner was its snot..how cute!
Eating the pulled pork sandwich from Maximus Minimus by the viewing gallery at the Pike Place Market, with ginger lemonade and sweet, tangy slaw:
The pastry counter at Piroshky Piroshky, a Russian bakery at Pike Place Market. It's perpetually crowded whenever we were there, could be because Anthony Bourdain featured it on his show before. KL and I bought a savory chicken, mushroom and rice piroshky to try...it was okay :/
Chowder, seafood bisque and classic clam chowder to be exact, from Pike Place Chowder:
So good in the cold weather that KL and I went back the next day for more!
Double chocolate gelato from the Chocolate Box is super yums!
How cute are the chocolate truffles from Chocolate Box? A milk chocolate bunny and bittersweet dark chocolate lab:
A shoot of Seattle's underground..it was visited by Ghost Hunters from the Syfy channel before..so do you see anything in the photo??
Vampire killer kit...for the evil type I guess, not the sparkly pretty type :)
The biggest puffer-fish that I have ever seen at the Seattle Aquarium. He swam over to check me out as I was taking his picture!
Random shadow play:
Barefooting it all over Seattle in my Vibram Fivefingers.
Snoqualmie Falls. KL and I completed a hike at Snoqualmie Pass.
Loading up on the caffeine. KL says there are always pictures of me eating and drinking on every vacation we take. Fo'sho!
The facade of the Experience Music Project building. Love the colours.
Waiting for my plane to take off....bye bye Seattle!!
