Mike Nguyen  My compass is my heart & soul guiding me on this journey called life... 🐷❤️📍🌎🌻📸

Took a Japanese Food 101 cooking class last night with @mimosa86~

It was so fun and interesting to FINALLY learn how to cook some of my favorite dishes I had while in Japan a few years back! THE MEMORIES. THE NOSTALGIA.

We made 9 things and 7 dishes in 2 hours: dashi stock #1 and #2, pickled ginger and radish, spinach goma-ae, gomoku gohan, chawanmushi, chicken teriyaki, niku jaga, and iri-dori/chikuzen-ni!

LOVED THE iri-dori. My absolute favorite. YUM. OH and the goma-ae we made was with white AND black sesame, SO GOOD. Definitely going to be making these and more in the future~

Water Lantern Festival 2018 in El Monte in LA~

Truly and absolutely an unforgettable magical night. My lantern dedicated to some of the most important things in my life: family, friends, and music. Filled with love, joy, remembrance, and hope as it drifted into the waters.

Aaaaaaaand it's another pop-up~ This time it's the Get Animated Invasion at the Grammy Mueseum~

Had a fun time seeing all these classics, like the Jetsons, Looney Tunes, Scooby-Doo, the Flintstones, Animaniacs, and more! Such nostalgia and throwbacks to my childhood~

And I really enjoyed the regular Grammy exhibits too! From seeing the history of the Grammy awards, to hearing about the behind-the-scenes of the music process and trying it out, and all the memorabilia of famous stars too! Such an interactive and fun mueseum. As a music lover, would definitely recommend going~

Some more calligraphy practice~ "You've shown me I have reasons, I should love myself"

When I heard "Answer: Love Myself" on first listen when their album came out in the early hours of the morning, it was so emotional, so beautiful, that even without knowing the English translation, I was so moved. And now knowing the full meaning, it is that much more relatable and means that much more to me. I knew I had to write the lyrics!

Truly a work of art and a song that I recommend everyone listen to and to take a moment to appreciate~ Magic Shop and Answer: Love Myself are two songs that have put into song the words that you've always wanted, or needed, to hear or that you've always wanted to tell the ones closest to you, but are sometimes so hard to say. Thank you BTS for these inspirational masterpieces.

Just got our BTS LOVE YOURSELF shirts and items from @thedancingtiger and BTS KOOKIE MONSTER! Perfect timing for the upcoming tour~

OMG. THESE ARE GORGEOUS. The shirts are comfortable and I love the size of the design! I love the contrast of the pink and navy too~ AND THE PIN. YES. THE BLUE SHADE IS STUNNING. AND DON'T GET ME STARTED ON THE GLITTER. AND THE FACT THAT THEY'RE MAGIC SHOP REFERENCES. UGLY SOBS... STILL SOBBING.

And definitely have to mention that part of the proceeds for the orders went to Project Semicolon to support the prevention of suicide and raising mental health awareness! Beautiful items for a beautiful cause. So proud to support even just a little bit~

Had a fun day in LA with @villainvu and @yentran06~

We did an Escape Room which was pretty fun with an interesting Space concept! Second time doing one and would love to do more in the future~

Had delicious Filipino food at Tatang nearby! My first time eating at a Filipino restaurant and it was YUM. LOVED the Ti-no-La soup we had and the Ba-la-Tong was really good too!

Also had dessert at Quenelle and had a FUNNEL CAKE ICE CREAM SANDWICH. THAT'S RIGHT FUNNEL. CAKE. DELICIOUS. SO WARM AND SOFT AND COLD AND DELICIOUS. YUM.

What a perfect day~

Went to my first water brush lettering class today @m.lovewell ~ Had a fun time learning how to do calligraphy with watercolors! Definitely have lots of room to improve on but it was really fun learning all the techniques and being able to use all those colors! AND we got to take home the brush pen and the watercolor palette too~ Our last excerise was to write a quote, so I had to do one of my favorite lyrics, from BTS's MAGIC SHOP. Definitely going to be doing more lettering in the future!

Also went to the Pins & Patches Expo right outside! It was hot out but it was fun! Got some cute Pokémon pins and got a cute lanyard for freeeee~ Gardevoir is my absolute FAV. ALWAYS AND FOREVER~

Last night was Charlie Puth's Voicenotes Tour in Irvine on the Honda Civic Tour!! First time at the Five Point Amphitheatre (which is outdoors..!!) and it was definitely a new experience! There were stalls on the grounds and places for photo ops!

Loved Charlie Puth's music since the days of See You Again and Marvin Gaye! Absolutely amazing to hear him live in person again after seeing him open for Shawn Mendes last year! Still love me those classics and PATIENT was amazingggg~

Hailee Steinfeld was an awesome opening act!! LOVED so many of the tracks she performed! Love Myself, Most Girls, and Let Me Go, were all AMAZING. ANTHEMS. LOVED IT~

Fun fun night~
