A Perfect Ending to 2014

By  | 

It’s been an extremely blessed year for me because this year I got a new job, traveled to many places, made new friends and got a foot in the industry. I couldn’t have been where I am right now without my family and friends. I wanted to do something special this year for everyone and sometimes I feel like the mom of Royal Origin, always planning the next get together and making sure everything goes smoothly. Even though it’s a ton of stress for me sometimes because I have to juggle event planning, my personal life and work, it’s all worth it to see all of my favorite people in one place.  This year we decided to rent out a million dollar high rise apartment for the Christmas party and thanks to Airbnb we were able to find something pretty affordable.


The apartment during the day, all furnished and ready for a fiesta.

The lighting and ambiance was a nice touch for a Christmas party.

 The view was amazing even though it was just a bunch of business buildings.




Tonight was the night we tested out the HOODRATstuff stickers on some Hennessy bottles. The reception from everyone was great and this collection will be released sometime in January.



Clinton came all the way down from San Jose just for the party to talk to Jerald about Filipino food.



Early birds here to watch the Lakers game where we played every time Kobe made a shot we would take a shot.



 I didn’t get to take that many photos during the party because I was running around making sure everything was going smoothly, but Vu was working his new Sony A7 and made a nice recap of the night. Check it out.

Thank you to the people who participated in Secret Santa and White Elephant, thank you to the people who brought tons of food, thank you to the people who made it a good time and thank you to those who stayed and helped clean up. I wouldn’t want to spend my holidays with anyone else, thank you for the memories in 2014.

Happy New Years and see you in 2015.


P.S. If we’re not on good terms by December 31st you’re being left in 2014.

I just want to travel and see cool things. Follow me on Instagram and twitter @nguminh and @thefoodadventurist.
