The young ones chat outside while the old ones sit inside and eat themselves senseless.
An Armenian neighbor of Irene’s. Self had no idea that Glendale had a large Armenian community.
Self found out from one of the cousins that Kim Kardashian is planning to run for mayor of Glendale. Then will there be more Kanye sightings, self wonders?
This is a HOME-MADE Brazo de Mercedes (Self had two servings) made by niece Melanie’s husband, Joe Fermin.
More desserts! From Porto’s, a former hole-in-the-wall serving only bread, now expanded to three branches, including Burbank.
Self met, for the first time, her Niece Valen, sister of the Manila designer Camille (Self’s partner in crime at Mesa, Greenbelt 5, last month!); The other human is Mike V, youngest son of Tito Mario Villanueva!
The photo above is of self and Llana, self’s niece and 1/2 of the fab creative team of LLAVA, which just came out with their first line of tops. Self is wearing the $30 grey top, isn’t it SUCH A STEAL??? Self never felt so glam! Even after 2 hours of eating, she still felt slim in this top!
Here’s a link to the top self is wearing, in a darker grey. And here’s the LLAVA Facebook page.
The eating continues. Self must have gained five lbs. today.
Stay tuned, dear blog readers. Stay tuned.
