Back from Atlanta

I just got back from my 2nd trip to Atlanta. It can be refreshing to venture out of the state and do something different every once in a while. Since I never got to talk about my first trip..I'll just sum up what I did when I went to Atlanta when I went in August & this past weekend.

Trip #1
- Atlantic Station: a convenient place for shopping (H&M!), entertainment, and dining. You can also park for free for 2 hours at the parking garage in the back next to the movie theater.
- Book Chang Dong Tofu House in Duluth

- Centennial Park: This spot was built for residents and visitors to enjoy for the 1996 Centennial Olympic Games and for years to come. The 21-acre park includes a playground for children and what visitors come here mostly is for The Fountain of Rings.

- Georgia Aquarium: The world's largest aquarium.

- Stone Mountain Park: The mountain is one big rock and is 825 feet tall and covers 583 acres. If you're lazy like me, you could take a skylift up the mountain and hike back down.

- Suno Dessert: Serve freshly prepared Asian desserts & beverages. They also serve a humongous plate of shaved ice at a good price.

- The Varsity: The largest drive-in fast food restaurant in the world. The restaurant caters to Georgia Tech students and was actually built by a Georgia Tech drop-out.
- Tin Drum Asia Cafe: This is sort of like the Bento's of Orlando/Gainesville except this place only serves Vietnamese & Thai food.

Trip #2
- 88 Tofu House: The first restaurant we ate at because we arrived to Atlanta at 12AM and this is the only 24hr Korean restaurant.
- Bakery Cafe MAUM: I have a sweet tooth for delicious treats and desserts! Out of all the romantic Korean bakeries in Atlanta, this was by far the best one. The bakery is called MAUM and in Korean, Maum means the mind, soul or spirit.

- Cafe 101: A contemporary Szechuan restaurant with a creative menu and dramatic interior. It's true when people say you shouldn't judge a book by its cover, because the exterior of the restuarant looks like an awkward hut but once you step inside you are surrounded by all these colors and design elements that make the restaurant look surreal.
- Piedmont Park: Another big and luscious park. A lot of people come here to go bike riding, jogging, or to walk their dog. There is also a dog park where dogs do not have to be leashed and can run freely. There was also this really cool electronic restroom that looks like an elevator from the outside and in the inside everything looks really hi-tech.
- Super H Mart: The nicest and cleanest Asian supermarket I've ever seen. It's a Korean supermarket but they also sell plenty of non-Korean brands. The cafeteria also has a selection of dishes from Japan, China, and Korea.

- The Flying Biscuit Cafe: I love it when emo people open up cafes because you can always expect a crafty new-age decor that cannot be found anywhere else. This place serves breakfast all day as well as weekend brunches, and they're famous for their fluffy biscuits.
