When you want to treat a big group of friends who have big appetites the best and most economical place is a Chinese restaurant. That's what Jenny did for her birthday treat last January.

It was the almost the last day of 2011 and the holiday rush was over and we wanted to get together. We also wanted to celebrate our friend's birthday.

More coffee love from Hong Kong!! All these shots save for 1 were taken with my iPhone 4S' camera. I didn't want to lug around my camera while shopping so using the iPhone was just perfect when I felt like having coffee in the middle of the day.

Grissini at the Grand Hyatt Hotel in Wanchai has the BEST Sunday lunch buffet in my opinion. If you are in Hong Kong for just a few days and want to splurge on one good meal then I suggest you book early for a precious seat at their popular Sunday lunch buffet.

I have a long backlog of posts with trips to Tagaytay, Cebu, Taipei, Hong Kong and Boracay. I decided to tackle them in order even though it's delayed. This starts a series on my trip to Hong Kong last December 2011.

This is it, my last meal in the USA. After spending a month going from San Francisco to Virginia, Washington DC and New York my last meal in Los Angeles was supposed to end with my best meal right? I was dreaming of Lawry's Prime Rib or some famous TV chef's restaurant. Where did I end up eating? In a Filipino restaurant!!!

Who hasn't heard of Campanile? I've wanted to eat there for years and finally got the chance on my last day in Los Angeles last December 2011.

After our spectacular dinner at Fig & Olive we went to the Farmers Market and The Grove to walk off all the calories we consumed. It was also my first time to see these two places next to each other.

I was going to start my diet again yesterday and not cheat anymore. I needed to lose the weight I've gained from my trip to the USA and Hong Kong Disneyland and many other mini vacations. I was quite a good girl the whole day until I went home and saw donuts.

Whenever I travel I make it a point to research on which restaurants to try. However I don't bother doing this whenever I go to Los Angeles because I implicitly trust the taste of my cousin-in-law, Mary who's a foodie too. She knows all the best places to eat at in L.A.

I've been to Los Angeles so many times in the past few years but this was the first time Sidney brought me to The J. Paul Getty Museum. As you can see by the first picture the highlight was our lunch at The Restaurant in the museum.

Our driver, aka cousin Sidney, was too tired to drive after the horrible traffic we passed through earlier. He decided we were going to eat nearby at Sushi One.

My cousin-in-law Mary knows all the best places to eat at in Los Angeles. She also knew I was on a diet and was interested in healthier options. In spite of my cousin Sidney's objection we went to Lemonade in Brentwood.
