short getaway ~ houston

mr. adventure's parents were visiting, so we decided to make a short getaway to the 4th largest city in US, Houston. we made a stop at Lockhart for Kreuz Market BBQ. absolutely delicious. the brisket was so yummy with all the fats and burnt meat (i sound like a glutton...lol).

Yup, that’s how we eat BBQ in texas. no fancy presentation on plates. it’s all about the meat! (sorry if you’re a vegan. don’t mean to disrespect). 071

we stayed at residence inn by marriott located right in front of the galleria. a very nice english style inn. we then invaded NASA's Johnson Space Center. tip: get a coupon from McDonald's right next to the space center for half of the admission ticket(if you ever want to go). overall, it's a ripped off if you pay full price. all the stimulator rides are not included in the admission ticket :( blah!!

cute girl wondering around while waiting for our tram.143

since kemah boardwalk is near the space center, we went there for seafood buffet dinner. the service was terrible. we waited pretty long to be seated when there were available tables right in front of us. the food was decent for buffet. it was nice to walk on the boardwalk next to the ocean. i miss the ocean breeze.

fav shot of the night.

downtown houston had an awesome art car parade. all the cars were fun, wacky, unique, creative. i wish i'm in a parade like this one day. 206231235242

last stop chinatown. found a "daiso" like store. i want to live in houston just because of this store. 053

had korean food for late lunch before we start our journey back. work is getting busier. feels great to have a mini getaway to recharge before diving into heaps of work.

Those cars in the parade look pretty cool! =D Seems like people really put a lot of work into them, I love the mammoth looking one haha reminds me of a piñata too =P As for Daiso, I know what you mean, I love the Daiso I have in my city and I always find things in there that I "suddenly" need!

Fun!! Haha...I'd love to have been sitting in that second car. XD And I agree. BBQ should never be fancy! Sadly, the BBQ in L.A sucks. =\
