    6 Fast 6 Furious

    Memorial weekend is the start of the movie and it was going to be a 3 way battle for the opening salvo and Fast & Furious 6 ran away with it, leaving the Hangover 3, and Epic in its dust.  I as well threw in my own $24 taking my mom to see it on Friday evening. The best description that i could ever give was its a perfect Fast and the Furious movie.  I admit i probably drove a little faster on the highway afterwards so I would recommend to go see it, just leave the brain at home before you go. The story is a continuation of Fast 5 where…

    Memorial Weekend Eats

    Joy and I are working on getting our kitchen redone, so we’ve cleared out all the cabinets and are in the process of clearing out the fridge so we’re not really setup to do any cooking. We did manage to paint our living room, but other than that we didn’t have any plans, so i’ll just talk about all the places we went to eat at instead. Saturday For dinner we did a mini tour of east downtown LA, starting off with the Pie Hole. We shared a very tasty Chicken & Cornbread potpie, and a lemon meringue tart. Both were really good, and really made me want to learn how to…

    League of Chumps Champion

    Last Saturday i was planning on attending Jih & Liz’s baby shower with Joy, but what i didn’t realize it was a girls only party, and i don’t think i could have been any happier. The party was at Regional Park in Cerritos and since we were there already together it was the prefect time for Jih and I go out for my celebratory meal at Boiling Crab for winning his Fantasy Basketball League of Chumps league. It was my second year in the league made many moves that should’ve bit me in the ass, but somehow i ended still winning the league and a getting a free meal on…

    Top 10 Tips for Taking Photos at Disneyland

    One of the best and longest lasting souvenirs you’ll take home with you from Disneyland will be the photos you take or buy. There are many places and characters to take photos but you don’t want to spend all day just taking pictures so these tips are to help make the most out of the photos you do bring home. 10. Leave your DSLR at home You might love your DSLR with that super expensive lens that can shoot photos in the dark but unless it’ll be your 20th time going to the park, leave the arm canon at home.

    Star Trek Into Darkness at the Grove

    Friday with no real plans, i talked to Ben online about watching Star Trek into Darkness, and the only place we could find to reserve decent enough seats was the Pacific Theaters at the Grove.  Joy and I headed there early to grab a bite to eat at Nancy Silverton new burger joint Short Order at the Farmers Market.  The food was ok, but the pickles chips were too salty, the potato spuds were huge chunks of fried potatoes (i’m a shoe string kind of guy), and the burger was decent but not making the ranks of my burger list i’m working on. We bumped into a promotional appearance of…

    Mother’s Day at the Zoo

    Joy mentioned that there was a Living Social deal for a San Diego Zoo Safari Park for $22 (50% off) and with Mother’s Day around the corner we bought 4. It was going to be a hot weekend so we picked up my parents at 7:30 in the morning to get there by their opening at 9:00am. By the time we arrived the temperature was into the mid 80°s. When we arrived they told us about Bike Race going on that day that would close the parking lot from 11-12pm and you wouldn’t be allowed to leave during that time. We stood inline to exchange our Living Social tickets, until i read the…

    Iron Man 3

    Friday night Joy really wanted to watch Iron Man 3, and i did my best looking for tickets online.  I wanted avoid standing in really long lines so i checked some of the nicer places where you can reserve seats but most were almost completely sold out. We resigned ourselves to catching it another night and went to watch G.I. Joe instead. When we got to the Rolling Hills AMC there weren’t that many there so we just decided to catch the next showing in 45 minutes. Joy really enjoyed the movie but i had some reservation about the storyline. Personally i thought the movie was visually very cool, and interesting…

    2013 Lakers Retrospective

    This year’s Lakers team could be summed up in one word. Dream. After being knocked out of the playoffs in 2012 by the Thunder, the Lakers revamped their roster signing free agent Steve Nash, Antawn Jamison, and trading for Dwight Howard for Andrew Bynum. Lakers fanatics were calling this the new Dream Team. Too bad the only dreams were the imaginative ones that the players had with their game. Kobe dreamed that he was a 20 year old again. Nash dreamed that Kobe would actually let him run the offense. Artest dreamed he could hit a 3 pointer. Pau dreamed about being able to play close to the basket again. Dwight dreamed that…
