Thank you to each and everyone who has been a part of BlauEarth since day one! The blog is exactly 9 years old today!

To all that have read a post or scrolled up or down this maze of slipshod stories reflecting the capricious moods of the author, my heartfelt thanks, and hoping you’ll be around for more of my adventures in Los Angeles, or in Ilocos, or anywhere else in this frigging awesome world.

I still do and enjoy the same things, like in this post, I rode the Metro, went to random places like the Hammer Museum of UCLA, and walked through a block of fresh produce and social enterprise goods (benefiting  the marginalized like former gang members) at the Westwood Village Farmers Market, open only on Thursdays (12-6PM), before hopping the bus, again, to an extremely fashionable neighborhood for the previous post.

Admission to the Hammer Museum is free. It also has a theater. A lot of private Hollywood events happen there as well.

Van Gogh’s 1889 Hospital at Saint-Rémy  where he voluntarily went in for recurring mental illness.

Again, it’s been wonderful sharing my discoveries and snippets of my daily life with you.

Have An Ice Day

Just living is not enough. Fresh air, a walk in nature, those little details around can refresh the spirit. I believe in the healing power of nature, and thanks to Big Bear, Angelenos can conveniently have fun in the snow and bask in nature’s awesomeness. In my case it was a day out with a friend. Ice, ice, baby!

Hope you like the photos.
