Strawberry dipped chocolate anyone?

So I decided to make this for my boyfriend.
It's actually easier than i thought it would be.
To make strawberry dipped chocolate you would need:

1. Strawberries of course... pick out the best ones that doesn't have bruices(I usually use ten strawberries but it's up to you to make more than that)
2. Chocolate bars.. i choose Hershey :] you can use milk chocolate, dark chocolate... so on

3. Here come my favorite part and also my boyfriend's ... It's the Snickers cums for the outer coat.  I chose Snickers because its my boyfriend's favorite candy.  But i think you can be creative and put other type of candies bars as the outer coat also.
Now, how to make it:
1. First you would want to wash the strawberries and leave it in the water for the sand and dust to brush off the strawberries, repeat the process several times to make sure it's clean.  Remember to leave the green part on, it'll be where you would hold on to when you dip the strawberries into the chocolate.
2. Second you will have to chop off the Hershey chocolate bar and put it in to a non metal bowl.  I use a clear bowl like this one.
3. Now you would want to boil some water in a pot.  When the water started to boil you would want to turn off the heat.  Then put the bowl with the chopped chocolate in to the pot.  Make sure the water level in the pot doesn't come in to the bowl. 
4. While waiting for the chocolate to melt.  You can prepare the outer coat of these whole thing.  Now, I've tried many ways to make Snickers bars in to crumbs but it didn't work out well.  So, my last resort was to leave the bar in the fridge till it harden a bit, then put it in to a blender and hope for the best.  Surprisingly it work out, although a bit messy but I've got the crumbs.  (no guarantee that your blender will be save so do this with caution).  When you finished making the crumbs, you can put it on to a flat dish. 
5. Now, that the chocolate in the bowl had fully melted, you can dry the strawberries.  The hardest part is the dipping part because it can become really  messy.  You can hold on to the green part of the strawberry and quickly dip it in to the chocolate, then roll it over on the dish full of Snicker crumbs.  That will give it a nice outer coat.  
 Remember to work quickly because the chocolate will quickly harden.  It might take sometimes but you will get the hang of it.  
6.  When you are done with all these step.  Put the strawberries in the fridge and wait for the chocolate to harden.  Then it's good to eat. 

Enjoy :]

BOBA crave

So there is a Vietnamese restaurant called Cali near La Quinta high school.  They sell Great Vietnamese cuisines.  However, the greatest part of this restaurant for me when i was still in high school was that their boba is only a dollar and twenty five cents.  This is cheep compared to other boba places.  However, what you pay for is what you get.  To my friends, the milk tea boba is quite sweet... but to me (I love sweet stuff) so tasted fine to me.  :] over all it's a great place for cheep boba.  Might not be as good as other stores, but either way here's a picture.  Enjoy :]

So there is this place called Crepe corner.  They have buy one get one free of from Tuesday Through Thursday every week, I believe.  All you have to do is log on to Facebook and check in to their store and you will get the promotion buy one get one free.

Their crepe is tasted good and why wouldn't it taste good when you get the other one free right? This is a great place to save money and get good crepe.  The store use to only sell crepe only now combined with the restaurant next door.  It's a weird combination; however, the place still have the same promotion, good tasting crepe and good customer service. So why not?

It's cute how they let you have a piece of paper filled with different types of fruits, syrups, crepes and ice creams for you to check in the boxes with their number two pencil.  This just reminded me of high school times all over again.

I always order crispy crepe with vanilla ice cream, nutella/condense milk, strawberries/Litchy.

This is another one of my favorite  place to stop by and eat.  This place have free Wifi :] 
They also have great foods such as calamari, brick toast, crepe, and much more.  
I suggest getting the customized crepe.  I love having condensed milk in my crepe plus strawberries, and vanilla ice cream.  
The brick toast in this case is great with the ice cream on top.  
Don't forget there are also calamari!!
For drinks there are different types of boba drinks.  My favorite is the milk tea float.  It's a milk tea with a floating Vanilla ice cream.  It tasted delicious ! however, the ice cream is the hardest thing to get up and through the straw. 
The customer services are great, and the place is clean.  I think it's a great place to hang out with friends.

Confetti Italian Ice & Custard

Ready for the summer? :]

Here's an Italian ice place.  It's called Confetti.  Quite a cute name isn't it.
They have crazy flavors that tasted unbelievably Delicious.  Especially the caramel apple.  The sourness of the apple along with the sweetness of the Caramel blended together.  There's also an ice cream topping on top of every cup.

This place have crazy yet fun names for their mixed flavors.  Such as: "bomb pop, and the chunky monkey." These names are fun to say and tasted delicious too. 

Summer is coming, so try out different types of ice creams places.  Confetti is a great place to start.

Gen Korean BBQ

This place is usually pack with people.  Their line started even before they open the door around 3 P.M. all the way till 12 A.M.
I would suggest you guys go early or the wait could be quite long.  It took me almost two hours worth of waiting.  "But hey, anything for good foods".
They have a wide range selection of foods, their employees are nice and the services were fast.  The place is casual and could get very loud sometime.  But over all the environment and the people there are friendly.

The only thing that i didn't like about the place is that they give you only two hours to eat for all you can eat.  If you weren't able to finish all the food you called out you'll have to pay extra.  I guess it fair since it's a strategy for them to limit the amount of foods they serve and also help reduce the wasted unfinished meat.

Here's another link to the Gen Korean BBQ House's website if you decided to try it out. :]!/restaurant
