Happy Mid-Autumn Festival !! (#MidAutumnFestival #mooncake #foods) | Mid-Autumn Festival is a tradition around all Asian culture, although different country may have it’s own celebration, most us all do reunion with our family, and have a good feast, a little bit like what happen in Thanksgiving in US culture.
Mooncake is one of the dessert for celebration, and we are lucky that in Socal it is not hard to get one. (You can refer to this LA weekly article about where to get mooncake).

#BoxedCoffee New Orleans Iced Coffee from #Bluebottle(@bluebottleroast) #Coffee #phototraphy | My bean stock are low this week, however, I have chance to stock the New Orleans Iced Coffee from Blue Bottle, they are sold in my local Wholefoods.
There’s a new shelf in Wholefoods for all the packaged, bottled coffee. Fresh brewed packaged coffee business is blooming now. Since Stumptown released the cold brew bottle, many roaster have their products now, and even Wholefoods are selling cold brew coffee joining the competition.
It’s good that consumer has more choice, it is not only the Folger in the dry good aisle.
Blue Bottle didn’t go head to head with Stumptown and many others releasing cold brew, but they did the Milk blended coffee, and called it New Orleans Iced Coffee, which it is a smart move. This is one of the packaged product my wife like most. | http://flic.kr/p/nZDXhJ
#Coffee shop tour: Chromatic Coffee (@ChromaticCoffee) at Santa Clara #BagOfBeans #photography #trip | Chromatic coffee is getting viral in SoCal, I found them in some coffee shops in LA , and out of my curiosity, I flew up to their shop. Well, that was not the main reason I flew up, but they on my list for awhile.
Up in the silicon valley, Chromatic Coffee is sit on Stevens Creek Blvd in Santa Clara, where it is a popular street for coffee shop for some reason.
Thirdwave coffee shop are some what hipster in LA/SF, people hang out and have fun in the shop. But in the valley, people are more serious, they study or work in the coffee shop, become a more quiet plentiful scene.
But the coffee there is not being plain, they being roasting pretty good coffee. Especially I like the art work on that package. | http://flic.kr/p/nUoCGy
