Finally got around to checking out the Aquarium of the Pacific in Long Beach. It was not as nice as I remember the aquarium in Maui being, but it is an aquarium and that alone drizzles enough awesome sauce on it for me to give it a thumbs-up.
The sharks were interesting as always, but I have to admit I was somewhat mesmerized watching the jellies float around. And enough kids referenced Finding Nemo that it could be a proper drinking game….
The other day I went to Disneyland and had a dang good time. I think there was a time, maybe in my teens or early twenties, when I felt like Disneyland was lame, like it was all about money-making and corporate greed. And, being the largest conglomerate in the world, it probably still is… but at least they try to sell a dream.
Summertime, time of BBQs and lemonades and beach days and flip-flops ALL THE TIME! Hooray!!
I’m finally getting around to watching the Quantum of Solace disc that I netflixed a while ago. I don’t know what it is, but these Daniel Craig bond movies are very hard for me to get into at home. I should’ve just seen them all in the theater.
The only movies I want to see on the big screen right now are Star Trek and wkw’s The Grandmaster(s?) but who knows when that will be released here…oh Tony Leung❥ Perhaps I will satisfy my craving for you with a viewing of In the Mood For Love bd (thank you Criterion).
Jin Ramen, 6.5/10
The other day I was thinking about my love of junk food. I generally try to eat healthily but every now and then I have horrible cravings for really, really junky food. I thought I would take this place to document some of my forays into the land of oily, fatty, salty sweetness.
Today’s review is of Korean instant ramen Jin Ramyun (Mild). For Korean ramen I usually only use half of the soup packet but this one was pretty mild (comparatively). I still only used half a packet though, because it’s pretty salty.
The noodle was pretty good; pretty springy for instant ramen. The noodle has a distinctive taste that is different from Japanese instant ramen, I’m not sure how to describe the difference but someone once told me it tasted papery. this might sound gross but it’s not necessarily a negative thing.

I wonder if all of LA County uses the same sticker? I didn’t know that Japanese was a big enough minority to warrant a translation. But you know, my parents will vote today.
what a nation of procrastinators we are! myself included.
