Our friend Jaypee brought back some coffee beans from his recent trip to Vanuatu and it was the perfect chance to test out the new mill.
Paired the coffee with a Filipino dessert called sapin-sapin (layered rice cake) which Amado only had a few bites of and I was more than happy to finish. I always grab one whenever we go to our local asian market.
That same weekend, Amado planned a Metro Day with a few of his colleagues. Taking the Metro is a great way to explore Los Angeles. You get to see places that you'd normally just pass through when driving. We started our day with brunch at Bottega Louie and walked on over to the library.
After that we hopped back on to the Expo Line and made our way to California Science Center. It was my first time going there. We didn't have much time to explore the whole place because it was packed with people. USC had a game the same day so the area was filled with families. The only exhibit we had a chance to see was the Endeavor. Of all the displays they had for the exhibit, we were really fascinated with the one that explained how astronauts handled going to the bathroom in space. Won't go into details and ruin it for you all, just go the Science Center and make a day out of it.
