Ever since Derek moved to LA for music school, I’ve been visiting him in LA every other weekend just because I know he has nothing to do on the weekends and I always have restaurants I want to try. This weekend Derek invited us to his studio for a recording session where he will be recording some music with his classmates.
Before heading to LA, I was at work getting ready for the big move. Check out the two S13’s that the RO brothers just picked up.
I can’t wait to see what they have in stored for these two beauties.
I’m so in love with the clouds lately.
When we arrived Derek was already in the middle of recording his classmate singing to a beat Derek made.
I’ve never seen Derek so focused before, it’s great to see friends find their passion in life.
This place is pretty damn cool.
Which one is the “On” button?
Derek always representing HOODRATstuff when he’s in the studio.
Afterwards we went to Milk to get dessert before dinner, this is a everyday Minh kind of thing.
While we were in the car, we came to a realization that none of the guys besides me have been to the LACMA Urban Lights installation. So, I decided to pop 4 cherries in one trip.
I’ve been here so many times, but I still never get over it.
So close, yet so far.
Does it look like I’m holding the pole?
Number one destination for tourists.
My new daily, the Toyota Venza.
Outside at Honeymee waiting for our table at EMC.
And from this a sticker was born…
Late night hangs.
Finally got seated at EMC Seafood, get ready for some seafood porn with these delicious lobster rolls.
When bae makes sure you’re getting enough to eat.
Went back to Derek’s apartment to chill for a bit, it’s so surprising how his GS300 is still intact in LA. It use to get more fucked up driving in OC.
Tower 42, where the orgies happen.
Just kidding, we just napped. Vinh getting hit with that food coma. Happy Birthday Derek! I only wish you success and happiness in your life.
