Tustin – Tommy’s Sushi – Restaurant Review

Tommy's Sushi

Tommy’s sushi has hand’s down the best poke bowl in Orange County!
We tried poki bowls from many many place, and still like Tommy’s the most.
We haven’t been to Tommy’s for about 3 months.
Now they have a brand new menu.
Poki bowl is still there, but they got rid of all the dinner combos.
Now they have the standard 2 or 3 items dinner combo, as well as omakase sushi.

Tommy’s Sushi的夏威夷生魚沙拉蓋飯是橙縣最好吃的,
還增加了omakase主廚挑選的壽司。 (more…)

Can You Afford to Buy a House? | 你買得起房子嗎?

Roller Coaster

Your landlord keeps hiking up your rent, and you’re tired of reworking your budget to accommodate the other areas of your life — or worse, searching for a new rental. You want to invest in a home for sale, but you’re not sure if now is the right time.


There are two likely reasons for your hesitation: time and money. Deciding if you should rent or buy can be determined in part by your commitment to an area — you could have legitimate concerns about job relocation or you may wonder if the space you can afford now will be flexible enough that you won’t grow out of it just a few years down the road. And on an economic level, perhaps you’re not sure you can afford all the costs that a down payment, mortgage, and home maintenance entail.


The first step? Do some homework. Consider these questions to help you decide if the answer to “Can I afford a house?” is yes.

第一步?先做好功課,我們來看看以下幾個問題,幫助你決定”我是不是買得起房子?”的答案是否為Yes。 (more…)
