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!
I just got my crisp, 52-page US Passport in the mail a few days ago so I thought I could write about how I had it renewed. My passport will expire on October 2018 but I already have travel plans for next year so I just renewed by passport ahead of time.
Just a little background about me, I am 25 years old and I had my previous US passport renewed at the US Embassy in Manila when I was 16 years old. I had to go to the Embassy that time since it was my first time renewing it as an adult. Now that I’m just renewing my already adult passport, I did not need to go to the Embassy in Manila.

It was a cold Sunday morning and the rain was falling. lol My sister and I rented a car and drove for around forty mintues to Snoqualmie Falls. Again it was super cold and super windy when we got there so I just took a selfie of my curls before the wind destroyed it. lol I spent a whole lot of time curling it so it deserves a selfie. ;b

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

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…
