Who what?  You ask.  Who Song and Larry it is!  The restaurant was conceived based on a fictional story of 2 best friends, Who Song and Larry, who travelled the world together.  Along the way, they met great people, sampled amazing food and drinks and had more tales to tell than anyone cared to listen.

    Haha, I like your “mixed feelings” comment. Mac & Cheese in an enchilada sounds terrible, but I think everything else looks great. I will definitely check this place out. I have been waiting for your write up since seeing all those pictures you were posting the night you ate here :) ReplyCancel

(Guest blog by Allen Taylor) I have to admit that I was unfamiliar with Pulmuone until I was contacted by their PR. I was hired to attend their event and photograph the dishes that would be created that night. Little did I know Pulmuone was about to surprise me with the food and company as […]

    It looks familiar but im not 100% sure. I shop at asian markets often, so its highly likelyReplyCancel

      Michelle, I bought their products at H-Mart and didn’t even know it because I didn’t pay attention to the maker before. I recently bought more tofu soup seasoning and realized Pulmuone was the maker! Thanks so much for stopping by!ReplyCancel

    Yes! I’ve tried the Wildwood tofu pastas, and my favorite is the spinach noodles!ReplyCancel

    • wendy - August 8, 2014 - 4:50 pm

      I’ve bought many of their non vegetarian products and didn’t even know it. I would have to look up the spinach noodles next time. Sounds delicious! Thanks for the comment!ReplyCancel

    That food looks incredible!! I love the Five Cheese Ravioli with Meatless Bolognese because it looks absolutely amazing & seems like an easy recipe to cook. Will have to try that one out for sure. Beautiful photos!ReplyCancel

      Allen usually doesn’t like ‘vegetarian’ stuff and he was so surprised at how good they were! Thank you so much for stopping by!ReplyCancel

    OMG…that ravioli looks AMAZE!

    The food looks so delicious…and your photos take it up 10 notches!

    I just had breakfast…you’d think I wouldn’t be hungry already.

    This did it! Haha.

Many of you know me as a blogger.  What you may not know is that I am a photographer first, blogger second.  Thanks to my mentor, Allen Taylor of Allen Taylor Photography, I went from someone who barely knew how to operate a Point and Shoot camera to now shooting a SLR on manual mode […]

    Wendy, I cannot thank you enough for these beautiful pictures of our precious Danielle! First, you made me look like a rock star for our family shoot. Now, you’ve made our little girl into a real life Princess! You truly are gifted and so easy to work with. Every family should be so fortunate as to have a photographer and stylist like you. Thank you again from the bottom of my heart!


    • wendy - August 7, 2014 - 11:24 pm

      Thank you, Julie, for your trust and confidence in me and Allen! We’ve enjoyed photographing your family and OC Wine Mart. I had so much fun working on Danielle’s shoot and it turned out exactly how I had envisioned it. She is smart, witty, sweet, and a wonderful model! Please give her a hug and kiss for me.ReplyCancel

    You’re so inspiring, Wendy! I would really like to learn more about operating a camera, too. Your pictures are gorgeous!ReplyCancel

    • wendy - August 7, 2014 - 11:20 pm

      It’s a great feeling being able to make the camera do what you want it to do instead of you letting it do what it thinks you want to do. Hope that makes sense. :) ReplyCancel

    How darling does Danielle look?! SO cute!

    Her outfits and accessories are adorable…especially the four-legged one!

    Beautiful photos…you certainly have a talent!

Did you know August is National Sandwich Month?  And I can’t think of a better way to celebrate it than with Mendocino Farms Sandwich Market!  But really, when it’s delicious sandwiches, it’s worth celebrating anytime. MFSM was founded in 2005 with a commitment to support local farms and vendors utilizing the freshest seasonal ingredients in […]
