A Day to Down Town Disneyland

When I came cross the news that Gucci just collaborated with Disneyland to launch their Chinese New Year 2020 collection, I felt super inspired and excited.  I was thinking that would be a good idea to visit Down Town Disneyland to check out their new design in 2020 and that also would be great way to greet Chinese New Year since  Chinese New Year is coming on Jan. 25th and this year will be year of the rat.   Disneyland is the happiest place in the world. So, guys, time for Mickey Mouse!

New Year’s Day Traveling

We have a tradition for every New Year’s Day.  Yes, we will go to beach to enjoy some sunshine , to be close to the ocean to feel its abundance and greatness. Ocean has a magic power that always calm us and show us there are actually tremendous opportunities and hopes out there in the world. And the most important thing ocean teaches us  is to be kind, generous and tolenrant from those who are different from you.

Yes, we are in famous Japanese Nobu restaurant in Malibu.

Malibu is a city west of Los Angeles, California. It’s known for its celebrity homes and beaches, including wide and sandy Zuma Beach. To the east is Malibu Lagoon State Beach, known as Surfrider Beach for its waves. Nearby is the Spanish Revival–style Adamson House decorated with historical California hand-made tiles. Malibu is such a lovely beach town in SoCal with pretty relaxing vibes. Our trip this time  is to visit Nobu, relax at its breath-taking beach-view porch, take a walk on the pier and just stroll around the town.

Nobu, Malibu is Iron Chef Nobu Matsuhisa’s Japanese delicacies, plus California fare, in a modern, beachfront space. “Originally opening in the Malibu Country Mart in 1999 as the fourth Nobu location in the United States, Nobu Malibu moved to it’s current location in 2012. The views of the ocean from nearly every seat in the restaurant, as well as Malibu-specific specialty dishes in addition to all of the Nobu classics, make this a destination dining experience not to be missed.” We have been too Nobu restaurant and hotel in Las Vegas. I will say Nobu Malibu has more relaxing beach get-away vibes while the Las Vegas one gears  more toward high-caliber clubbing experiences.  Each restaurant has their specialities. But one dish we like from both locations is Black Cod Miso.  You’ve got to order it if you have a chance to visit.

Inside of  crowded Nobu Restaurant, Malibu on the New Year’s Day of 2020

Known for its five-star cuisine and decadent Japanese-inspired interiors, you’re likely to spot a Kardashian at this California go-to. The LA-based sushi bar is such a celebrity staple, it’s even name-dropped in three Drake songs and a Kanye track. That said, the opening of their luxury hotel Nobu Ryokan Malibu is bound to attract a star-studded guest list. We didn’t get a chance to visit the hotel this time since it is guests-only(maybe next time). But I found an article from Elle Decor talking about this newly opened 5-star hotel.

beachfront-room-1494524903.jpgOverlooking Carbon Beach along the Pacific Coast Highway, the lodge draws from the area’s laidback California style while boasting Nobu’s signature Japanese design.The building’s original structure was a 1950’s beach motel, which architects Studio PCH and Montalba Architects have dramatically transformed. Each guest room has its own unique interior design, all incorporating teak, bronze, and limestone to maintain a calming neutral color palette throughout.

Laguna Contemporary House Tour by Paul McClean

We were recently invited to a private party to take a home  tour at one of Paul McClean’s latest contemporary projects at Laguna Beach. It was a beautiful sunny day in the valley and by the beach, there was a little bit marine layers, wrapping the whole beach town in a romantic sheer. And you can see in the following video, the neighborhood is kind of lay-back cottage beach house style which really makes Paul McClean designed home stand out. Ireland-born architect Paul McClean has become somewhat synonymous with the high-end housing boom in Los Angeles. He designed homes for celebrities and high-net-worth buyers that include Calvin Klein, Beyoncé and Jay-Z, and the Winklevoss twins — famous for suing Mark Zuckerberg. He likes to play light, air and water for his projects to create very Zen-like atmosphere.

Here are some high-lights that we really like in this contemporary house at Laguna Beach.

And here is the entrance–very Zen-like.

Sunday Vibes

We like to take a casual walk at a neighborhood coastal resort  after a long run on Sundays. the late afternoon glow, the Mediterranean architecture details, french cafe, rose gardens, the sea not that far and the sunset…etc. are just like a dream to me.  Wouldn’t be nice to take a little get-away over the weekend to recharge once a while?

I always like the Meditation stonework.

Sunday Mood-board—Bold color and Pattern

Good morning! How’s your Sunday going so far? I woke up earlier and watered my garden first. I feel it is such a bless for me to enjoy my garden in the morning.  I love to observe how morning sun light shines through the greeneries with a little cute dew drops. It is such a romantic moment for me. What’s your Sunday mood? what color are you in mood for today?

We visited an art installation yesterday and it is about colorful rolling-hill landscape in Ireland. I’ve never been to Ireland and I guess people there must be very happy. You know that is true since we all have a good time on St. Patric’s Day. so here is my sunday color block mood-board. Enjoy!

Weekend Vibes

 

“Less Talk, More Ice Cream”, what about talks over ice cream?

I love just scrolling  around the neighborhoods of  Los Angeles to experience diversified cultures, find new cool shops with quirky interiors, or simply having my sweet-treats and batheing in the sunshines.  What about you? How do you spend your weekends?

A Day of Traveling Part II

 

We just had another big earth quick last night in SoCal after the 6.4 one on 4th July! It is 7.1!  Send love and prayer to people who are affected seriously. And I followed Dr. Lucy Jones from CalTech last night the whole night for her analysis on what’s going on. Somehow, listening to her gives me a sense of peace.

 

Well, when natural disasters happen, we know we need to appreciate all of the beautiful things around us more.  So, guys, let’s continue our Day of Traveling—Part II. There are a lot of beautiful photos for the modern classic interiors I caught during the trip, so it’s time to  sit back and relax.

 

IMG_0250.jpg
Arte-decor clubbing house.  The geometric black-and-white rug does the wander for this room. And of course, the brown leather tufted mid-century chairs, the fireplace and wooden wall panelings add the layer of old school traditions  and bring the stories and warmth to the space.
