A Day in Pasadena

The weather was nice on Saturday. Since we usually don’t have a long workout on Saturdays. We often plan to visit some places locally during this pandemic crisis. After all, we have being stayed at home too long. It is good to just scroll around local towns and get some inspiration, So far, we have visited DTLA China Town and Little Tokyo, so we decided to visit Pasadena this Saturday.

A little bit information about Pasadena here. Pasadena is a city in California, northeast of downtown Los Angeles. In the center, Old Pasadena is a shopping and dining district known for its Victorian and art deco buildings. The strikingly modern Norton Simon Museum houses notable European and Asian art, plus a sculpture garden. The Rose Bowl is a sports stadium known for hosting the Rose Bowl Game, an annual college football clash usually held on January 1. Read on to enjoy the local journey with us.

We had a scenic drive around Arroyo Seco area. The Arroyo Seco Bridge is pretty amazing. With its majestic arches rising 150 feet above the deeply cut Arroyo Seco, the Bridge was proclaimed the highest concrete bridge in the world upon completion in 1913.  The bridge impressed travelers from the day it opened.  Until then, the crossing of the Arroyo Seco required horses and wagons to descend the steep eastern slope, cross a small bridge over the stream, and then climb the west bank through Eagle Rock Pass.  Given this harsh topography, the Colorado Street Bridge proved a challenge to design and build.  Solid footing eluded engineers in the seasonally wet arroyo bed. Hopefully, we are able to get a better video when we drive through again. In case, you want to take a “country-in-the-city walk, check out this article from LA Times.

Then we stopped by ArtCenter of College Design to take a photo with its famous Mural wall outside of the campus.

A Drive-Through in DTLA

After all, it has been more than three months we haven’t been there thanks to the pandemic lock-down.  Here is a quick video we put together.

A Little Weekend Local Get-away

 

Our Saturdays are all about exploration.  Specially in the new normal under the current pandemic, we will have to get out to nature as much as we can to take good care of  our wellness physically and mentally.   Since locked-down in March, we haven’t been to DTLA. We decided to have a morning hiking in Historic State Park and  go to visit new Proper Hotel in DTLA.  Here is our little weekend journey.

State Historic Park

Saturday’s visit to SHP is our first time . We were really amazed by this 34-acres  park , where rail-yards thrilled long time ago.   Often referred to as “Central Park of Los Angeles,”  the park occupies acreage just north of Chinatown between the L.A. River and the Elysian Hills, where pobladores who journeyed from Mexico and later arrivals from Europe, Asia and the United States drew their water. It was where, beginning in 1876, a generation of migrants from points east ended their rail sojourns to California, disembarking at the Southern Pacific Railroad’s River Station. With the dawn of the 20th century, it was where the town became an industrial city as the depot, restaurants and hotels gave way to rail yards and switching stations. It became known as the Cornfields, although there was scant evidence that corn ever grew there. You can click here to read more.

The public arts in the park are just mind-blowing. One of  the public art inside the park includes this  “Origins,” in above picture,  a sculptural piece by Debra Scaccothat was inspired by the nearby L.A. River. “When I conceived the piece, it was particularly with this patch of land in mind because it really is about the changing courses of the river and the changing courses of this site, the original Zanja Madre,” says Scacco. “There’s a particular relevance to it and I’m delighted that it’s going to live here.”  The material  he used here is mirrored steel to reflect water rippling.

Sunday Beach Day

 

Finally, our beaches are re-opening.  “It’s as if we were in Sleeping Beauty’s Castle, all asleep, all frozen, and suddenly there’s light and space.”  It seems like we haven’t seen ocean for ages. With the beautiful warm weather, nothing can really beat spending a day by the beach for some fresh air and Vitamin D. And we got enough of them after 4-hour non-stop hiking by the beach.

The subtle gold wall-covering elevates and lights up a narrow hallway . A fresh orange flower arrangement adds a dose of excitement. We love the view in the hallway that is able to see a very elegant drapery on the landing area of the stairs , which hints a sophisticated taste for the rest of the home.

The almost monogram of color of green creates such an elegant, soothing and luxurious feel while the mustard lounge chair, bright yellow flowers and pink on the artwork truly spice up this lovely living room.  A neutral nature are rug ground the whole space and let the eye take a break from all of the greens here.  The mood here is quiet yet cheerful—a kind of feeling we are all desperate to create for our home.

Las Vegas Winter Market 2020 Trip VII–Eataly

—–This site contains affiliate links to products. We may receive a commission for purchases made through these links but you don’t need to pay any extra cost. 

One of our Vegas trip for Winter Market 2020 is Eataly, a vibrant Italian marketplace located inside Park MGM that features an array of cafés, counters, bars, restaurants, and market.  Eataly in Park MGM is the sixth U.S. location and 37th in the world. The first one opened in January 2007 in Torino, Italy. The name is a combination of Eat and Italy.

Well, our first impression is this Eataly in Vegas is so un-Vegas, which we love it very much.  The market is located in such a big hall with a tall ceiling. So there are a lot of natural light.

Eataly, Las Vegas,   is comprised of more than a dozen authentic Italian eateries and hundreds of high-quality products,  offering visitors the opportunity to eat, shop, and learn their way through one of the greatest cuisines in the world under a single roof.

For us, we just love to check out the restaurant interiors in such a limited time.
