Adventure dome in Vegas. So so fun but for the 1st time I got sick riding those fast rides. Age thing or just a bad breakfast???

Ka by Cirque du Soleil. I have seen 3 other variation by this lad and this was the best so far. A bit of blade runner and oriental influence. Sublime can be the right word for this act. The sand creature section and vertical fighting were superb. $500 for four.

wolfgang restaurant in MGM at Vegas. We were served good and tasted good. Nice open and clean interior. $90 for four.

So so hotel. 1st time I lost on BJ. $100 per night.

滬江湯包(Hu-Chiang Dumpling House)
10877 North Wolfe Road, Cupertino, CA

Loved it. Good tempo.

Lame Chinese men movie ! Kind a old looks to it and do not know why I wanted to see it. Wait, now I remember it. It is because of a good movie [Smoke] and wanted to see other stuff done by people shot Smoke and it lead to Wyane Wang. I just found out that later he made [maid in NY]! Yikes, sayonara.

OK, but not as good as [usual suspects]
No more Trantino for me. Especially Kill Bill. That was just so elemetally bad.

Intel = integrated-electronics company museum. I did not know how a CPU was made. Also they started out as a memory chip company in the beginning but when a Japanese company asked them to make a caliculator chip, they invented a CPU and instead of getting paid, they gave back the pay and kept the right. Clever move.

X-men the last one or so they say. So so. One time viewing movie though. I need something like Blade Runner which makes me want to see it again.

Brown Sugar, Cool Bar in Taipei. Good salsa night.

Taipei Grand Hyatt. Local say it is haunted. Built over Japanese excusion site. They knew it and did all kind of Fung-Shui to ward off the ghosts. Well I stayed at nice suit 2234. No ghost. Superb hotel. $240/night, I would book again. Design of 1st floor shops and restaurants are amazing.
Meryl was good in it. I like her. Weak plot and ending... Too bad.

My Ex-Supergril Friend. The boy friend was good and his friend who stars in the Office was decent. OK low-IQ movie.

The Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest 2006

Amazing shooting. Especially at the rough sea. Going into sequal mode, that bothers me a bit. At least each episode should conclude better.

Nice house. Weak ending. No twist at the end. I knew right away the dead man was Keanu, so it could have made it a bit more mistrious there.

[Criminal] had a good potential to be [Spanish Prisoner] or [usual suspect] but kind a week.

Tuesday, November 07, 2006

It was went over funny and quickly became boring. Sorry, not my kind.

City of God. Based on real life in Rio de janeiro. More like half documentation and it was long film. Got good toward the end and had some laughs.
Make me not want to go to Rio.

American Dreamz. So so funny. Sally's boyfriend, is he Keanu wannabie?

Saturday, October 28, 2006

Crash. I liked it, but as much as hype? Nope.

Battlestar Galactica 2005
Unlike 6 feet below, this is getting darn good. Boy, I like everybody init.

"Six Feet Under" (2001)
It started out interesting but became a soap in the middle.
Should have tied the each episode deeper with the intial death in the beginning.

Snatch. (2000)
Directed by Guy Ritchie
Funny but a bit too much. Will try smokin barrel later.

The Manchurian Candidate 2004
Strange... Just strange. Story and ending. Bye Bye.

Antwerp. Diamond capital of the world which I did not know it but saw many orthdox Jews so I should have know better. Good food and beer. Old town center look like any Benelux town but like it.

Colette, my favorite store. Well used to be. Now too much books and people and Japanese goods. Where are the finely selected shoes and gadgets?

Paris Produced by Alain Ducasse and had many American customers. We mis-ordered and wine tasted like one without any preservative which we are not used to it ;-)

Aux Lyonnais

Duma 2005 Cheetah movie. Enjoyed it. The good acting by Xan and Rip, especially their accent.

Sucked and slept halfway but later found out that it might got a bit interesting toward the end. Oh well, toooo bad.

Dennis Quaid looks so young. Good feeling PG13 film. Mother looks good in it.

Friday, September 15, 2006

Crank, the movie good and fast.

Thursday, September 14, 2006

Good. VERY Interesting plot.

Tuesday, September 12, 2006

I like it since it is not as crowded as Whole Foods but less people means less turn over so less fresh?
Anyway, the Palo Alto store is in good location that is for sure.

Finally, we tried at 11:30 and waited for 40 minutes and got in. Their Shumai was good, and many other goodies. Cheap and noisy good.

Sucked. Especially the ending. Michael just walked off from his work and seeing no-one (insider or whoever) is pure boring.
Never again.

Motor Cycle Diary. About how Fuser became Che. Good bike riding shots.
Made me re-think how I live now and once I thought doing something like that.
Never too late you know.

Loved it.

Bought for kid. Kind a tough but front suspension and 14 gears for $199. I thought it was a good deal and design balance.

Clean and straight but that is about it. Good bye.

Satura cake in Palo Alto. Japanese styls cake. OK.

[Superman returns] Saw it again. Sucky one but since IMAX made it a bit interesting especially when he flys around Manhattan. Could any film can be shown at IMAX?

Saw it at IMAX theater. Good shots with good CG combined.

San Jose Tech Museum. They had a deal and we could enter for $8 and get any IMAX viewing as well. So we saw [force of nature] and [superman return] Their exhibit is so so but got to ride Segway so I am happy. Good location.

Cheap and good. Very efficient. I still think it is not as good as in Haifa but it could have been melancholy.

Rode it for the 1st time. Rode three times baby! Fun and amazing feeling. Anyone can learn it in 2 sec.

But ain't gonna buy it. If you have time and money for it then mind as well walk. It will prolong your life in years!

Why did we (Japanese) such a beefeater? Prior to WWII we did not have that habit. Is it because meat is universary good taste?

We know the cows has been fed with meat to get bigger faster. Cows eating meat sounds funny and so do we who used to eat veggies and perhaps some fishes according to Lyall Watson's Neophilia.

Sushi Maru in San Jose 262 Jackson St.
Smaller than its Sunnyvale cousin but a bit more energetic and clean.

Santa Cruz Beach, went there for surfing. Cold water, strong wind. Some were kite surfing there. 1 hour drive via hwy 17.

Spike Lee and Denzel Washington. Loved it. A little twist like the [Usual Suspects] but in modern way. Clive is just so cool in it.
