the beauty of LA

Even though almost every movie's background is in NY, very rarely you will find major movies film in LA, but I think LA is a very fun and unique city. I love taking pictures, over the years, I have taken pictures using cell phone, regular camera, a more upgrade camera, here I want to share some of my pictures with you, I have selected a few that I think represend LA's beauty.

 

remember the times when we used to have to buy films and put it in? the film is 24 and 36 pictures only so we can not take too many pictures unless you're filthy rich. and you have to take it to special store or drug store to get devloped and you have to wait couple days or a week to get the result. now digital camera is so cheap that almost everyone has one. and cell phone has better technology and the picture from cell phone is pretty good too. around $100 you can get a regular camera that has about 3-5X zoom and around $200-300 you can get a better camera that has more than 10X zoom. so why not take more pictures of your life and have memories store in your hard drive.

you can use pictures to instead words to write a diary, it will show every single place you ever been to, ppl you talk to, and restaurant that you ate at, take pictures of yourself, you can see how over the years how you change. it is fun taking pictures, especially now you don't have to go out to devlope and buy films, just buy the memory card and extra battery and store it in your hard drive, you can make it as a CD to give to your family as gifts or print it out and store it in the scrapbooks or photo albums.

eating at Disneyland, so many choices, so little time

I love the food at Disneyland, I almost finish all the different restaurant at Disneyland, even thought it is a little expensive, but what can you do? unless you are willing to eat the sandwich and chips you brought from home, you have to pay for the food in Disneyland, they have food for different age, for adults, they have BBQ chicken and ribs, hamburger, sandwich, for kids, they have pizza, chicken finger, but for everybody, they have yummy snacks and desserts. if you have annual pass, you can get 10% off and 15% off for premium pass. the pass discount only works at the restaurant and some food stand. always be sure to ask and show you pass before they ring you up, cuz after they ring the cash register, they can't give you discount anymore.

 

a few unique food that you won't find anywhere else outside Disneyland is chocolate covered banana in the ice cream stand outdoors, super thick corn dog by the main street corn dog stand, pineapple ice cream at the Tiki juice bar by Adventureland, soups in bread bowls in different locations, special non alcohol mint julep lime juice by New Orleans Square's French market and of course the one and only Mickey mouse shape waffle. to view all the restaurant online check out.

can you guess where this is at in Disneyland?

I have Disneyland S. Ca annual pass, so besides the blockout dates, I like to go as often as possible, now let's play a little game, the picture I took below are not regular Disneyland pix, but can you guess where this is at in Disneyland?

 

I have been to Disneyland for over 20 years, some of the place has changed and some are still the same. they have added new food, new stores and almost every time I go there, there are new items at the shop. I can tell you that until this day, I still havn't gone to every single place at Disneyland, I wish they made more stop for the railroad cuz right now there's only 4 stops, it would be easier for ppl just need to go to a certain area but didn't want to walk. it is a lot of walking, consider that you have to start walking after you get off the parking lot and more walking after you got in.

 

It is really super fun, just remember don't go on raining day or super hot day, and always eat breakfast before you go, because by the time you can eat something at Disneyland it would take 1 hour after you arrived. and most restaurant don't open till 11am so you have very limit selection. try to read the map the night before at home and figure out where you want to go and where you want to eat. I have a maps at home from different times and I even started collecting them. I have marked every single place and ride that I have been so I know what's left for me to go next time. if you are lots of energy, walk, but if you don't want to walk too much, take the railroad instead.
