#Tattoo an Exhibition | Video Blog of Visit to Natural History Museum #LosAngeles



What do you think of tattoos? I think they are cool. However, I do not have any myself. I had the opportunity to learn more about tattoos and the history behind them.

Did you know the earliest tattoo was discovered on a 5,300 year-old mummy found in the Alps, said to have been done to soothe joint and muscle pain? Wow! Today, many people have tattoos, which express their individuality, to portray them as an art form, as a sense of belonging to a group or community, and spiritual practices. 



"Watch the movie, Tattoo Nation, the story of a few people who helped transform the world of tattoo, and the way we think about tattoos, forever. This is the true story of the ink revolution."








In my video blog below, I share what I learned about tattoos during my visit April of last year to the Los Angeles Natural History Museum's 'Tattoo an Exhibition'. You can pause the video at any point to read the details about 'What is a tattoo?' What tools are and were used? Why do people get tattoos? I hope you learn something you did not know like I did.

While in China...Victoria Peak | Stanley Market | Big Buddha #ChinaTravel #TravelVlogger



This time last year I had a great time traveling to Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou, and then Hong Kong. In this travel vlog, I share my visits to the highest hill on Hong Kong Island, Victoria Peak. Then I walked and observed the various shops and waterfront restaurants at Stanley Market before taking the local bus and subway to Tian Tan Buddha (Big Buddha). 

These experiences were very special and spiritually inspirational. I felt a newness with God and I could feel and see how important their religion is to their lives in China. Take a look at my video blog for an inside look and enjoy! 

I hope you're able to travel to these places and experience them for yourself. They are a plane ticket and packed suitcases away!

Vegan-friendly Fortune Yakisoba Stir Fry Noodles Review | Hot and Spicy Flavor



Since deciding to eat a vegan diet for the love of animals and for spiritual reasons I cook at home even more. When I am in the grocery store I tend to look for new vegan products to try. This time I saw Fortune noodles in the refrigerator section of my local Ralphs and decided to pick up a few. For lunch, I prepared some Beyond Meat Italian Sausages and had some veggies and decided to add those to the noodles too as recommended on the packaging. I used to enjoy hot and spicy noodles so that's the one I purchased by Fortune. Everything you need is in the packaging, but I recommend that you add your favorite vegetables, etc, to make it your own.

In the video below, I share how I prepared the Fortune noodles and there is a surprise guest who decided to drop in on the kitchen action :D


My Review

  • I liked the texture of these noodles and they retained their consistency after I stir fried them in a pan. The directions give you microwave instructions as well. However, I do not like to use microwaves too often. 
  • The hot and spicy packet of seasoning is intense, so it lived up to the 'hot and spicy,' but it blended well with the noodles and everything I added to it. 

Since preparing these in the video, I have purchased the Fortune Yakisoba Stir Fry Hot and Spicy noodles again and I still love them. They had a fatter noodle with mushrooms I think, but I did not like the fatter noodles so much. There are a number of varieties by Fortune and they appeared to be all vegan-friendly, so give them a try if they are in your local supermarket. 

I give them a 4 out of 5 stars because I can customize them to my liking by adding different vegetables and vegan meat alternatives.
