    Kindle Fire

    I’ve been pretty late on the tablet bandwagon and after seeing nina’s Kindle Fire i thought it was time that i get one. As much as i probably would have preferred the iPad, i really couldn’t justify spending $500, especially since i found the Fire on craigslist for only $150 in perfect condition. Overall as expected the Kindle Fire is not as visually nice or responsive as the iPad but for the price i can get over it. I do actually prefer the size and rubberized backing to the larger and metallic body of the iPad. Joy has been watching her Korean soaps on Netflix on it, while i use…

    Anniversary at Steakhouse 55

    For our 3rd Anniversary Dinner, Joy made rsvp at Steakhouse 55 located at the Disneyland Hotel. We figured we might as well use the most of our annual passes and eat fancy with our discount.

Dinner was a delicious meal of crab cakes and onion soup to start with and fresh sourdough bread made fresh at Boudin Bakery in the park. We Split the 18oz Ribeye with the Steakhouse 55 seasoning cooked to medium rare. As a side we got  the Chef’s Potato Stack Au Gratin which was thick, creamy and awesome. We also ordered a bottle…

Even though it was getting late, we managed to squeeze in a few rides before going home, and tried out the new Star Tours 3D. It was cool to…

    Las Vegas Check List

    I used this free trip to Las Vegas as a good chance to do somethings that i’ve never get a chance to do for one reason or other on previous trips. Since we got our rooms for free I figured it was a good time to shift that monies to a nice dinner for Joy’s 32nd Birthday at Le Cirque. The place as super fancy and it was fun, but there probably wont be a follow up meal anytime soon. Vegas during the day is typically spent gambling, drinking, pool time, shopping or sleeping, but i’m always up during the day, and found the Pinball Hall of Fame years ago,…
