Halloween time at Roger's Gardens

Every year we like to visit Roger's Gardens during Halloween and Christmas time to see all their wonderful decor. We can't really afford their prices, but it's nice to look and get inspired.

Slow Dancing

Last night, we went to an outdoor art exhibit of Slow Dancing, a photography project by David Michalek. He filmed dancers at a very high speed so that when the film is played back at normal speed, the dancers appear to be moving in slow motion. In fact sometimes you have to stare at the image to realize they are moving at all. The films are project onto the side of a building, drive-in movie style. They have been exhibit in numerous areas, but only recently were shown in Orange County. The radio station KCRW held a late-night event last night with one of their DJs, Jason Bentley, just outside the Orange County Performing Arts Center. It was a bit cold, but still a couple hundred people showed up. We went and met some new people as well as ran into some old friends.

I stumbled upon Yesterland a few months ago. It's full of pictures and descriptions of defunct attractions at Disney parks, primarily Disneyland in California. Since I have lived my whole life within 15 miles of Disneyland, it was cool to go through the site and read about certain attractions I remember, and many more that I never saw. Check it out.

San Diego trip

For Armilyn's birthday, we took an overnight trip to La Jolla and San Diego. We left after Alex came home from school. On the way down we stopped in Carlsbad at this new shopping center, so Armilyn could check out her favorite store, Anthropologie. Alex and I hung out by the fountain.

Our room at the Residence Inn overlooked the pool, so we let Alex take a quick dip, but it was a little on the cold side.

Heaven's Delight

David's Strawberry, Banana, and Chocolate crepe!

David and I are always on the hunt for something new and creative in the OC, so we were thrilled to stumble upon two desert places called Heaven's Delight (Bolsa & Brookurst) and Yummy Yo (Westminster & Brookurst). On my birthday, David took me to Heaven's Delight for breakfast for freshly made crepes. Mylan, the owner and my new friend makes them so delicious you think you've died and gone to heaven.

Another place I ran into was a frozen yogurt joint Yummy Yo - their frozen treat was a little too sweet for my taste buds, but their girlie store design made me feel like I was in a Parisian parlor.

OC Auto Show

Last night we went to the OC Auto Show at the Anaheim Convention Center. We went about an hour-and-a-half before closing, so the show was not crowded at all.

Alex loved it and insisted in kicking us out of the driver seat in every car we sat in.

Alex was wearing his Speed Racer t-shirt, so we of course had to take a picture
