Phoenix, Arizona

Winter in Phoenix, Arizona. (Late Post)

I have heard from people of how hot Arizona gets during the Summer. But I've never heard people talk about the brief moment of time when it gets really cold. This is the case when I visited Phoenix in December. It was cold.

Phoenix and the surrounding are have a lot of good places to eat and drink.

Check these places out.

Sequence: Board Game

So I have not been posting at the same frequency as I started. Anyways, who is excited with our week's mail. We found a promo code for a board game a few weeks ago. Since we don't know how to play this game and price is reasonable after the promo code, we decided to go with the buy. Anyways, it has finally come through, and here it is!



Welcome Sequence to our Board Game Collection.
Learn. Laugh. Venture.

Layover: Allie's American Grille

On our way to Germany in 2011, our flight to Heathrow got delayed. We needed to get out of London Heathrow Airport and stay a night at a hotel nearby. We got to the hotel and we were so hungry that we ate at this place.

The Order: 1886 Review

During this past weekend, one of the games I have always wanted went on a PlayStation Flash Sale. The game cost $7.99 which wasn't that bad considering the overall good reviews the game had. The game was known to have had a pretty good story as well as good graphics and gameplay. So without giving much of the story, I'll try to get my point of view of the game.
The game feels like a movie. With the 2 hours, I spent this weekend playing the game. One thing is evident. This game surely feels like a movie. To me, this isn't a bad thing. I have always been a fan of great story lines on video games. This keeps you interested in playing the game and rather than just finishing the game just because you spent money on it.

The controls are pretty good; although if you are used to Battlefield or Call of Duty or any kind of first person shooter, you'll need to adjust at the trigger button.

Overall, I like the game. It's a good buy even if you won't get it on sale.

The Best Green Tea Ice Cream

We have tried a lot of green tea ice cream from different restaurants and even packaged ones from the stores. But not one of it can make us crave like the green tea ice cream at Shinsengumi. 
This ice cream has a really good balance. It's not too sweet and it's not too bitter. You'll be able to taste a hint of green tea. Pair that off with the red beans on the side and and it's awesome.

Appreciate The Good Things

Last week, on drive to work or home, I kept seeing reminders that California is in a drought and that we should limit water use. 

I just wanted to share a photo I took at Getty a while back. To me, this photo just shows the beautiful things we have and we should learn to appreciate what we have now.
