Malaysia current heat / hot weather makes me miss cold places I have been before. I want to take back what I said before – I love being under the tropic weather 365 days a year. It’s been three and a half months since my visit to Alaska. Now I miss its weather. The weather that makes me feel like it is always 10 am in the morning (I love 10 am in the morning!) and I remember I didn’t experience terrifying headache when I was in Alaska. Unlike here, I have crazy headache almost every week 🙁
Back to my boring trip to LA.
I don’t know why is it so hard for me to find the best star along the walk of fame. I remember I was walking like more that 1 kilometer and still, I couldn’t find any ‘special’ star. Until I found ‘Lassie’. Yep. I grew up with Lassie as a TV star back then.
Then I remember one thing I noticed about USA. I forgot to include my findings on this particular thing that I found it very obvious while I had my first visit back in June 2013. It’s their public washroom / toilet door!!!
I swear the door gap is like 1cm and I practically can see what’s going on outside while I was doing my business inside! I bet it vice versa and it was very uncomfortable experience for me. I know it is not very common for people (with same gender) to peek in, but still, my level of consciousness made me stop my pee half way. lol.
Back to the LA revisited. After we done with Hollywood boulevard and eating some ice cream, we continue our train ride to Universal City. We arrived when it’s already dark so, nothing much going on.
I never saw a quiet Universal Studios’ city walk before. Not in Japan or Singapore. Maybe it was weekday or maybe February is not a tourists’ peak season for LA. I don’t know. But here I didn’t get the same feeling like when I was entering the theme park somewhere else. OR maybe it has something to do with my age. OMG, I feel old!
But we still do a must do list when we are at the park. Be it day or night – trying on the headgear for free is a MUST.
and as usual, Mike has to be the one to pose with it for my viewing pleasure. Look at his unhappy face.
like, really grumpy unhappy face.
I really wanted to do the selfie for both of us along the Citywalk and Mike went “oh my god, this will take forever”. 🙁
Well, the reason why we came here is to buy Hard Rock Cafe T-shirt for my friend. Although I am not a t-shirt collector, but I don’t mind helping friends to get one or two since I travel a lot. And surprisingly, my luggage seems like a magic luggage. No matter how heavy it is, it never exceed the weight allocated which is 23kgs per piece. Trust me, I bought a lot of stuff like perfumes, souvenirs and all. I almost unable to zip close my luggage most of the time. But like a magic, it stays underweight.
Two months after this picture was taken, I realized I was standing at the same spot where Chris Brown filmed his ‘LOYAL’ music video.
The next day we went to Santa Monica Pier. I always wanted to come here because of the ferris wheel. And I really want to ride it with my husband. So we took the train & bus to find our way to Santa Monica Pier and again, it was already dark when we arrive 🙁
We missed the sunset and the beaches. I told Mike that we really need to rent a car next time we travel to the city like this.
Then I saw some kind of whimsical tent standing at the Santa Monica Pier’s parking lot.
and a lot of people, dressed in fancy, rushing down to it. I was thinking like, do people here dress so fancy just to be at fun fair site?
Then I found out it is not ordinary fun fair site! It’s world renowned Cirque Du Soleil !! They were having TOTEM world’s tour and this is their 7th stop in LA since 1987. So, yea, we went down to check the price of the tickets. The price starts from $65. It was our last day in LA, and I spent most of my money when I was in Alaska and I still need to buy some stuff so, yep, we have to pass it. 🙁
Bergambar dengan poster pun, jadilahhh 🙁
Yes we had to pass the world’s greatest circus art for this time, but we still make it at the one and only Pier Burger in Santa Monica! My experience with Route 66 Concrete is out of this world. I never had so much thick soft, powdered and hard chocolate in one cup at the same time until I had Mike to finish it for me. That sundae is the mother of all chocolate in the world!
We spent so much time in Pier Burger so we missed the Ferris Wheel ride! The ride is closed by the time we finish the our dinner 🙁 so, so sad!
So we just sat around with hot coffee and staring at the wheel from the distance But I wish someday we will come here again for the sunset and ride that ferris wheel for once!
So this is the reason why I can’t afford to buy a ticket to Cirque Du Soleil’s TOTEM show. I was busy becoming VIB at Sephora and loading my luggage with Victoria Secret’s shopping haul.
But then, when I think back again, it was a stupid choice. Shopping over Cirque Du Soleil?
The next morning, it’s time to say goodbye. Mike flight back to Alaska is earlier than mine so I cried when we I had to see Mike went to LA’s domestic airport and left me here at the International airport. But, only for a while. I love how LA do with its International airport. I think this is the reason why every airport must look like this. To dry every women tears after a short, or even a long goodbyes…
Though it's affectionately known as "downtown," Los Angeles' most historic district has often been overshadowed by the glitz of West Hollywood, the beaches of Santa Monica, and the luxury of Beverly Hills. But thanks to a recent influx of world-
