The Broad Museum

January 18, 2017

I have always wanted to go to the Broad Museum ever since I heard about it but I couldn’t get last minute tickets whenever I was in LA. So the last time I was in LA, I reserved tickets here a month before my visit. The tickets are free so when the January tickets opened, I reserved a lot of tickets on different dates.

So my sister and I arrived at The Broad on a Wednesday. We parked in their basement and went up to the entrance. I saw that there was a line for those who didn’t have tickets but admission is not guaranteed and you’d need to wait an awful lot of time to be able to get in.

As soon as we got in, we immediately got tickets to the Infinity Room. They’re free but the entry for the infinity room is timed and limited so we had to get that one before roaming around the museum.

I super love the Broad. All their galleries are interesting and of course, super instagrammable! I actually enjoyed the Broad more than the Met in NYC. But of course that’s just me. I’m not going to talk a lot about my experience since all we did was just walk around and take a lot of pics, but I’m going to share a lot of our photos. Enjoy!

Vancouver, BC, Canada

January 11-14, 2017

A day after I got back in LA from my Seattle-Victoria trip with my sister, I hopped on another plane to Vancouver, Canada! I know you’re all confused why I didn’t just ride a bus from Victoria to Vancouver. It’s because I already planned this trip way before my sister and I finalized our Seattle-Victoria trip and I already had roundtrip tickets. lol I didn’t wanna waste my tickets so I just had to fly to LA and fly out again the next day. lol

Day 1

I flew with Westjet Airlines for the first time. I had a relaxing flight because I had all the seats in my row to myself.

Victoria, BC, Canada

January 9, 2017

After exploring Seattle, my sister and I went on a day trip to the beautiful city of Victoria, Canada. The ferry from Seattle to Victoria takes only around three hours. We booked our ferry tickets (with afternoon Tea at the Fairmont) at Clipper Vacations a few days before our trip. There was an early bird discount for booking the tickets at least 7 days before our trip so we got that one.

We just ubered to the pier at around 6:30am because we needed to check-in an hour before our departure, which was at 8am. We had a smooth trip even though it was raining. We docked at Victoria at around 11am.

Seattle, WA – Day 1

January 7, 2017

I went on a quick visit to my family in Los Angeles for New Year’s. I stayed there for a month so my sister and I had to plan a last minute sister out-of-state-trip. We initially planned on going to New Orleans but the plane tickets to Seattle were much cheaper and the weather was bad at New Orleans at that time.. not that Seattle’s was any good. It rained a whole lot during our visit. lol

Universal Studios Hollywood

Jan 6, 2017

After battling jetlag, I finally got out of my bed and went out of the house. Lol I bought a Universal Studios Annual Pass from Costco for USD 110. The one day pass for that day was USD 105 so I just got the annual pass. I can still remember back in 2004-2007ish, day passes were only USD 39 for California residents and they would have a promo of buy one day and get the whole year free. I can’t believe it has almost tripled now but nonetheless, people are still flocking into the park especially now that the Harry Potter World has opened.

The last time I was in LA, the Harry Potter World was still closed. I just took this photo after exiting the studio tour back when I visited on January 2016. I told myself that I had to go back again this year to visit the newly opened Wizarding World of Harry Potter…
