Before we brushed shoulders with some of the world's famous Hollywood stars, we dropped by at the Farmer's Market for breakfast.
Dengan hati yang girang gumbira, sambil menyanyi2 lagu abang P. Ramlee(enida jgn marah) dan berlari anak2 kecil, kami pun mengorak langkah untuk menikmati makanan kampung halaman yang telah lama ditinggalkan, 10 hari lama ok!) The staff at the counter looked tanned and we felt at home. But we couldn't really understand their language though. So we spoke in Malay, kira macam terjumpa sedara la ceritanya. But alangkah terkejutnya kami, mereka sepatah pun tak memahami bahasa kami. We then had the natural tendency to question the halal status of this restaurant. And to our dismay it was not halal. It was so near yet so far kinda situation for us, especially when kami telah pun terhidu aroma nasi lemak, laksa, mee kari dan sebagainya. Well in the end we quietly settled for this instead...alhamdulillah .
LA is a vibrant city. The multitude of cultures of the people contribute to the interesting hues. The splashes of colours found at Little Mexico along Olvera Street were just gorgeous to the eyes.
Kebetulan ada pesta tari-menari disitu. Seronok apabila dpt menyaksikan orang2 asli Mexico ni mempersembahkan kebudayaan mereka. Jika anda perhatikan betul2 Lisa pun mengambil bahagian dalam acara ini, gambar pertama dari kiri ;o)
Other than locating the Route 66, Lisa had another task she was assigned to accomplish. Her dearest husband is a fan of LA Ink, a tattoo show shown on Astro. Her husband is attracted to the graphic beauty of it, not the tattooing on skin part, mind you. She had the address of the shop scribbled down somewhere and has been sweet talking the driver to take a swing to the designated address. And to our surprise the pakcik driver was kind enough to drive us there with no extra charge. We went in hoping to see Kat Von D in action but unfortunately she wasn't around.

Before we adjourned to the Walk of Fame, the very reason why we made the trip all the way to Los Angeles, we passed by many of Hollywood's finest attractions. One of them was...
We could not contain our excitement any longer. We were here to see the stars. The stars apparently can be spotted at the intersection of Hollywood Blvd and Highland Avenue. The famous Hollywood tourist attractions such as hand/footprints in the cement courtyard of the Chinese Theatre, the Kodak Theatre, Hollywood and Highland entertainment complex, Madame Tussaud's all greedily can be found near to each other.
Like Lisa, I was also on an important mission. I had Drewbarry More to track down, all in the name of love for the other half, or in the name of guilt sebab husband kena tinggal, we headed to Hollywood's Walk of Fame. In an instance the first star we set our eyes on was the sexiest of Hollywood signing her autograph in the blocked cement.
...kemudian, Lisa flew high with Superman on his back. The problem was, Superman tak perasan pun Lisa was tagging along. After dumping Richard Gere aka donkey, Lisa became Lois Lane for the day.
Drew Barrymore, finally. My husband just adores her sebab she has the same hair colour as mine kahkahkah...apakah?
Many have asked us if we saw anyone famous but to our dissapointment, we didn't, folks. The closest encounter was this...
And to answer your curiosity, the star who stepped out of the limousine in my previous entry was...jeng jeng jeng
We abducted a white Limo one fine day and romanced it like we have never romanced anything inanimate before LOL!
As I walked away counting the stars below, it gleamed on me that my blessings superceded the number of Stars on the boardwalk. I realized I had a lot to be thankful for and being thankful, indeed, made up the bulk of this trip.
And to you who finds time to be here and read words that don't matter, my heartfelt thanks...
to you too.
