Eagle Hills, Brea Neighborhood Christmas Lights


Despite living in Brea for over 10 years, I just found out last week about this small community displaying Christmas lights every year. What should have been a 10 minute drive over to this area from home took over 1 hour. We went on Dec. 22 around 6pm and the traffic was bumper to bumper for a good 1 miles stretch. It was ridiculous and long but I knew this was going to be something worthwhile and special. Prior to covid, this neighboorhood had residents sell pastries and coffee. They would be outside greeting everyone and some houses would have live music. Unfortunately, majority of the visitors just drove through this area which caused more traffic than usual. There were a handful of visitors on bikes or just strolling through but they live close to enough to choose alternatives way of browsing in this area.

Google search Eagle Hills, Brea and you'll find the address. Most people would say that visiting this community is better than some of the others in Orange county. There's the Newport bay light display and another one in Dana Point. So many others ones are scattered all over this county but Eagle Hills is free and very relaxing to browse with your family. Definitely check this place out over the Holidays.

Quarantine Christmas forced families and relatives to celebrate through Facetime or Zoom. This years Holiday just came and left without saying good bye. But I was glad that the residents at Eagle Hills took their time to put up some cheerful Christmas lights to bring some Holiday spirit alive! It was really nice to go for a drive and spend some time inside Eagle Hills this year. It's a must visit for the whole family!

I love how each house had a different theme. This house above looks to be a Grinch Christmas! So cute and fun to look at, isn't it? Couple houses did the Disney theme while others were more traditional. You can watch the full video on my Youtube channel: Please subscribe!! I also have a clip on my Instagram: Missfoodaddict

Sorry for the blurry pictuers but I only took clips of videos and had to screen shot for these pictures. Don't let these poor quality pictures deter you from visiting Eagle Hills though. My video on Youtube would give you a better idea on what to expect on your next visit. The only part that is missing is all that stuff that went on before 2020 which I even missed. Hopefully, things will get back to normal in 2021 and we can once again celebrate birthdays and holidays without having to worry about getting sick.

Jojo's Kitchen: Taiwan Eats inside Haven City food hall

How I got myself to work as a content creator for Jojo's Kitchen inside Haven City in Rancho Cucamonga... Haven City is a food hall that opened in 2019 around October. It's a fairly new place that has a hip vibe and many great restaurants serving delicious eats. I did a couple of media events for a handful fo restaurants and they've seen a sucessful growth of business. One day the owner of Jojo's Kitchen asked if I would be interested in working as his restaurants content creator. Having a good number of followers on Instagram and Youtube proved that I was able to make some eye catching content by creating videos and photo's. The audience is intrigued by delicious photo's of food or eye catching fun video clips. This also visually helps the potential future customers to try the food that they've tasted with their eyes. I saw first hand how the pandemic fractured a small business that was ready for take off. However, good food is what helps a business survive and keep it moving forward. You can do all the advertising across every social media outlets but if your food is dull and boring, the word of mouth spreads quickly and can damage your sales. Jojo's Kitchen uses their deep family home recipe made by the owners grandmother and father. Many Taiwanese customers had said this food reminds them of home back in Taiwan. That's when you know that your food is quite legit and it'll cause the customers to repeatly come back for more!
