I attended the Asian American Expo this year. The Asian American Expo took place at the Pomona Fairplex. Parking was $10, and admission was I think $7-9. One thing I learned about this event is that its a good idea to bring cash!! That was an epic fail on my part since I barely had enough money after paying for parking and the entrance fee. I ended up having to take out money from one of the ATM’s at the expo.
This is a panorama shot of the outside food area. There were tons of vendors who sold food for reasonable prices. There were so many people at the expo that some lines were a little annoyingly long. Also, some asians can be very rude sometimes. But I did enjoy secretly staring through the corner of my eyes at girls who I thought looked fashionable. Haha, thats always fun when you are bored in line with nothing to do.
These are some of the foods that I had that day. Gosh, so much money spent on snacks. It really adds up!! Starting from the top left and going clockwise is takoyaki (たこ焼き), stinky tofu (chòu dòufu), okonomiyaki (お好み焼き), and lamb skewers (羊肉串). Yum yum yum!
At the Asian American Expo, there were tons of vendors selling merchandises, foods, and services. Apparently, this is a great time to stock up on goods such as soy sauce since the prices are dirt cheap. However, I really had no interest for grocery goods or anything else they were selling. But there is one thing (or more like 8 things), that I did get.
I ended up buying facial masks!! They were $1 each, and if you buy 10 of them, you get one free! I was there with my friend, so we purchased them together and I got the free extra mask (thanks Hannah!). I’m excited to try out these masks since I heard that they were good. Each of them does something different, such as tighten/firm, moisturize, get rid of dark spots, and much more. I let you all know how these masks work out for me later 🙂
Thanks for reading!
