Hiiii..helloooo everyone..So I am back almost after a week….:))))) ..We reached on late night of Monday ,n were exhausted,exhilarated and happy after the 3 day long trip,when we fully explored all the attractions of LA..Hollywood,beach,shops,Disney land,Universal studios n what not..Thank you so very much for all the lovely wishes you send my way,n as you guys wished me,I really had a grand gala time..:) .Sooo,did you all miss me??I missed you all,n your posts n opened the reader yesterday n saw 100's of posts in my reader..I was confused as to where to start n just ran through a few n shut the lappie,as my head was throbbing badly..n all the time I was in no mood to sit down and write a post.n kinda cooking block too..After all those days of French/Italian /bla bla foods,our tongue's were almost numb n craving for some good ole' Moru curry n rice..So once back home,I just made it n some simple scrambles n all..In short,nothing worth posting..n by next week we have to shift to new apartment as well..So crazy times ahead again..Ha..but life is good when it is busy..:)
I am really scared that If I go on like this,I may come to the dead end of blogging.So just thought of scribbling some tit bit’s about our trip,show you some snaps yadda yadda..:) I have all of the pics in Orkut n you can see it there..will share a few of them here as well..:)
When we started ,I was little apprehensive ,if we'll be able to cover everything there,especially all the major rides of DL n Universal studios, where there are supposed to be long queues in front of all rides.But Thank God..Kutts planning helped us there..:D We enjoyed everything thoroughly n as per we were told by the people there,our visit was on the best time of the year.Not too rush n pleasant climate.It was slightly hot during noon time,yet the sun was good n people were basking n enjoying..:) On our first day,we went for the city tour..went to Old Santa Monica city,beaches n shops around.
The beach somewhat resembled our Alleppey beach(now now..all beaches look almost same..aint it..:D),but it was not very clean..Shops around were fun n so many shows were going on around.Then we went to Beverly hills,Rhodeo drive,saw Marlin manroe's old home,Pretty Woman Julia Robert’s shopping place,Clooney's high school,building in which Die hard was shot ,Farmer's Market n so much more..:) Then off we went to see Hollywood sign,Chinese Grauman's theatre and Kodak theatre..There was so a good crowd there,n we saw Depp,Frankestien,Superman,Charlie Chaplin n all those character's..It was hilarious when the Depp character bowed at both of us saying some prince/princess n was yapping non-stop.I was giggling all the time..:D
Second day,one whole day was fully dedicated to my dream world Disney Land,where we had tons n tons of fun..The above snap is from the Mary Poppins show infront of Disney Castle..We were into almost all of those main rides n jeezz ..What a world it is..You can simply pass time people-looking..There were so many ineteresting people out their in weird outfits n accessories with transparent net umbrella's n I swear ,I saw all the rainbow color's on their head's..The rides were so awesome,n my fav is Indiana Jones n Pirates of Caribbean..Haunted Mansion is also too good..If you gals have kids,please do take them to there once n I am sure they’ll have so much fun time there.
How can I skip mentioning the food,when I am talking about all this in a food blog? lols..We had so many types of food n drinks from DL,as you get tired all the time ‘cos of the sun n fun..n yes they were good..:) I could take the snap of our lunch only..
DL has a lot of food joints strewn liberally around the place..n most of them had an obvious rush during the noon time.We had some good French food for lunch..Chicken n Seafood Jambalaya n their signature cheese cake for Dessert..But our appetite was more for the endless adventures lying ahead of us..!!
We went into roller coaster ride as well,just one of them..n I was yelling n howling at the top of my voice n fainted several times before I landed down..Poor Kutts was almost carrying my limping self in his arms..hee..:p..Then we went to Toon Town n its truly kid’s place.The whole cartoon world we’ve been seeing all through our life unwinds into a sweet reality there n we were like thrown into a pleasant dream world .We went to Mickey’s home n after long walks through his house n Movie Barn we got to meet the esteemed personality,Mickey in real n took snaps with him..:) The day ended with our heart brimming with happiness,a wide grin on face,sore throat n aching limbs refusing to move again..!!
The third day was for Universal Studios n my..what a place it is..All the rides were mind blowing,one better than the other,n we yearned for a second chance in everything.But we had to hurry n try everything once.My favorite was the Simpson’s ride,which has the highest rating n loved by all..Its even beyond imagination n explanation.You are really trapped in a dangerous cartoon world,with twists n bumps n other lotsa moments where we tend to close eye’s..Its just awesome..!!We loved the 4-D Shrek n Terminator n Jurassic park n all of them.Two of the most scariest ones are the Mummy ride n the House of horror’s..The Mummy ride really brought tears to ma eye’s..It was so so scary..n so is the House of horror’s..you have to walk through a dark haunted house,where you have the company of ghost’s n mummie’s n yuckiest dead bodies hanging down from roof ,knocking you on the way deadly music n howls in the background ..n the worst thing is you HAVE to walk n move on ,when all of a sudden you’ll be greeted by a bloody corpse jumping on you..My..many a times I refused to move n he had to drag me n I closed the eyes n moved on..Once coming out,I slumbered into a bench n finished a bottle of water..!!
We got to meet Shrek,Fiona ,donkey,Dora,curious George n such cutie pie character’s..:) ..Water world had an amazing show,presented by TV artists..The guy from Desperate Housewives n a team of brilliant daring artists.It was one helluva show I say..!
I guess Universal studio’s are better for teens n middle-aged people..cos neither kids nor aged people will be comfortable with the rides..The place have some good food places as well..We got to taste some real good Orange n Mandarin Chicken at a Chinese stall there..
At the end of the day,we took our late night flight to Seattle,thus bringing an end to the fun filled gala days we had.But we are sure planning to go there again..Mebe a full week tour to Disney land..stay in that cartoon world n enjoy every bit of it comfortably..:)
As a place ,I dint like LA very much though n so I was happy to be back in my Seattle with it’s clumsy rainy weather..I am enjoying the lil relaxing time I’ve now,before I am sucked up into the crazy days again..So sweeties, pls do wait for me to catch up with your posts..Hope you all are doing great n cooking up great yummy things there..I’ll be up with a proper foodie post,mebe next week..
All of you take good care,have lotsa fun n stay bright n smiling..Hugs..:)
