Nam and I took off to my old neighbourhood, Culver City, for an architecture exploration one day. She’s an architecture major, so there were lots of insights when we saw the interesting buildings populating the art district. It was fun!

Samosas and a tin of Milo malt chocolate in Culver City.We stopped by one of the Indian marts that I used to pass by but never dared go in, and got delicious samosas. I also snagged a precious tin of Milo. Sweet, sweet Milo.

We chanced upon Taste of the Nation on our way to the architecture hot spot. Nam was saying how she was the lucky person, since events seems to pop up whenever she makes plans to go somewhere. In fact, the trip to the Getty Center in the previous post was her idea too.

800 degrees in Taste of the Nation at Culver City.800 degrees was there too! The queue for it was too long though, and Nam and I were eager to get on with our itinerary.

Salmon and roe sample in Taste of the Nation at Culver City.I took a picture of the plate I grabbed from the bare table, and when the guy behind it saw what I was doing, he bade me relinquish the plate while he fussed over the presentation for a good minute. Wow! I had to compose the plate next to the bouquet of flowers after all the effort he went though.
