Visit to Disney

Spent the good part of the day at the Disney lot in Burbank today, where we were given a guided tour of Disney's production facilities (they'd just finished Meet The Robinsons, so it was a tad quiet). After that, we went for lunch and took a tour of the other facilities, told which room was Walt Disney's old room (!!!), and got a chance to take a quick peek at some sound stages.

Also, I happened to come across this link:

Cool PRMan SIGGRAPH lectures! Gah so much stuff to learn!

What's new in LA?! New wheels! New longboard wheels that is :-) I just got my new set of Abec11 Grippins. I haven't ridden them yet, but they're surprisingly soft. Can't wait to test 'em out!

Annoying fog! GAH! At the time of this post, the tall white building is even more friggin' obscured!


Experienced fog for the first time! Wonderful weather then suddenly... dun dun dun, this white thing rolls in. Instantly reminded me of Stephen King's The Mist.

Anyways, uneventful day till the bus home had some mechanical issues with the door (refused to close!) and it happened near.... Digital Domain! Yep that's the view through the dirt encrusted windows of the bus. I go by DD every single day. Twice.

More food!

In an attempt to bring living costs down (or the fact that you get sick of frozen food.... take your pick :P), I've started cooking stuff at home. This week I'll be having.... rosti! Ok well... not really. What we have here is some thai rice covered with potato slices friend in egg and sprinkled liberally with black pepper. Ahem.

The weather seems to be improving this week, it's almost too warm to wear a windbreaker when heading outside. Apart from the most welcome warmth, I think the sun seems to be rising earlier? Today I woke up with the Sun shining in my face, and I had a single, bladder loosening thought (ok so nothing with the bladder just pretending to be dramatic) - I'M GONNA BE LATE FOR WORK!!!!

Looking at my clock, it's..... 6am?! What the....?

Will report more happenings as it happens to me, noob houdnik in LA!

Using CG metal balls to hit string and percussion instruments, an entire music piece is created. This is a really inspirational piece!

Let's act like a tourist.

Yesterday was my second time visiting McDonalds in the USA, the first time I just got a Sausage McMuffin meal and it was pretty much the same as the ones back home, except somehow, they don't serve tea?! I had no choice but to go with coffee.

Yesterday morning I was real hungry for a reason (perhaps all the skateboarding and running around the boardwalk :P )
and I happened to meet my colleague on the way to work. We were originally going to Starbucks but the queue was rather long, so I said (and personally I don't like starbucks too much) "Hey let's go to McDonalds!". Once there I just picked the largest meal I saw, which was this deluxe meal. Ok so I wasn't paying attention to the pictures in the store, so when I got back to the office I was wondering... why did they give me syrup?! Did they give me the wrong meal? But obviously, I just wasn't awake enough to realise the amount of food stacked in my carryout! It's basically a Big Breakfast + Hotcakes meal + 2 slices of bacon!

Needless to say I had a late lunch as it held me up pretty well :-)

Check back again!
