These are some more pictures I took when my cousin stopped by Los Angeles on his way back home to Pinas from a company sponsored training in Dallas, Texas.

Olvera Street, the oldest street in Los Angeles, which is now a restaurant and store populated "poor excused for a street" whose claim to fame is its historical significance.

City walk at Universal City

A guy demonstrating the joy of freefall in a controlled environment

This guy is doing his things in an enclosed, airtight sealed area with a powerful machine blowing air underneath. I wonder what is going to happen. if and when, the machine breaks down or there is a power failure.

We stopped by a rinky-dink Vietnamese resto in Chinatown and this is one of our order. It looked like something a dog regurgitated LOL. In fairness, this photo was taken after my chopsticks wrecked havoc to the plate of what I thought I ordered - pansit or what passed for one. By the way, notwithstanding how it looked, it was delicious and cheap and the waitress who served it was not bad-looking either LOL.

When I was in Malaysia, I also did that enclosed "skydive". Hehe. Ang sarap! 3x ako nag-ganun. LOL. I am hoping to do the real deal though. :-)

Wow, controlled free-fall, how cool is that! First time I see it hehehe.
Thanks for sharing, Bert. Btw, I linked you to my blogroll.

That pancit made me very hungry.

"it was delicious and cheap and the waitress who served it was not bad-looking either"

You are an adventureous young lady. I have no doubt you'll give it a shot when the opportunity arises.

My niece is trying to convince me to do a tandem jump (you jump attached to a pro who does everything and your job is just to pray and hope your chute will open and both of you will land safely). She did it and said it was FUN. No thanks! I will consider it when I feel suicidal LOL.

Dennis, thanks!

The forced air shoot him all the way up where we can't see him anymore and then down again, then up...I'm glad I don't have to do that for a living.

PUSANG-gala, welcome back! I hope you had a nice vacation.

rolly,oo nga - cheap, delicious and served with a smile. Next time I will take the picture of the server - it is part of the ambience of a resto.

What do you mean your "chopsticks wrecked havoc". That pansit looks really delicious, especially when I saw pork in it. Wala dito nyan! : (
