On glorious MLK morning, I went to the Santa Monica Pier with my friend Jon, who just came back from wintry Georgia. It was a wonderful way to spend one last day of fun before classes start this week. I am so glad the weather cooperated--the day was simply perfect.

Then we went to pick up my sister for a fun lunch together at Al Gelato. One of us had to order the meatball sandwich that Tony (my BIL) have been raving about for years. We also ordered a cabernet gelato which was delicious!

Then we went to The MILK Shop which I've seen in some of my friends photos and thought this must be a happening place. But after visiting, I thought it was just alright. I only tasted the red velvet popper (which was pretty good). I would be willing to try this place again, if it wasn't for the fact that everything seemed overpriced to me.
