Saturday, May 8th... we left Bakersfield around half past 2 in the afternoon for L.A., heading towards Universal Studios in Hollywood... we left hella late coz we slept in! LOL... we didn't really care about being there early since we've been there so many times already... we got there around 4:30ish... we just wanted to see stuff that we haven't seen yet & then go on rides that we really like.... so we watched the Animals Actors show, very cute!!! we also wanted to see the Fear Factor show but apparently they've closed that one... we went on the Revenge of the Mummy ride & The Simpsons ride.... had Ben & Jerry's churro sundae then walked around the City Walk...
here are a few pictures taken at the park...


with Davi, Ben & Jerry!

the celebs & their bodyguards tryina block the paparazzis.... LOL

showin off our sexy tummies!!

we are the biggest cam whores ever!!!!

after Universals, we headed to Anaheim, where the baptism will be... we decided to watch a movie at an IMAX theater before heading to our hotel... we ended up at The Shops at Anaheim Garden Walk... bought our tickets only to find out that we were an hour early for the show... so we decided to grab a bite before the movie... being that we're not from that area, we just chose a restaurant very randomly on the map... so we picked Roy's Hawaiian Fusion Cuisine... hmmmmm... Hawaiian Fusion, sounds very casual right?!? well, we thought wrong!!! hahaha... we walked into this fine dining atmosphere where everyone were dressed very, well, "fine-dininglyshly", while we were in our most casual attire... I mean we went inside a very nice restaurant in tattered jeans & flip flops & all... hahaha... it was a bit awkward at first but we just behaved like ourselves & we were fine after a while.... according to the website, the restaurant offers the "aloha" spirit, uhmmm I did not feel that at all!! the staff were nice & all but there wasn't anything that would convince you that they are practicing the "aloha" spirit... I mean, if you hear "aloha", you'll think: laid back, very welcoming, island decors, maybe girls in hula skirts & leis.... nothing like that.... & what did we eat?? sushi & rolls... hahaha... well, the website did say "European techniques and Asian cuisine meet Hawaiian hospitality to create a fine dining experience unlike any other." confusing, noh!??! well, they did include fusion(a style of cooking that combines ingredients and techniques from very different cultures or countries) in the name but there is no way that place should be called Hawaiian at all.... don't get me wrong, I'm not trying to knock the place down, their food is amazing!! but they got me confused with the whole Hawaiian thing... sorry!! just thought I'd rant about something since I haven't in a while... hahahaha

since we already walked into a fine dining restaurant looking like how we did, might as well go all the way & cam whore right?!?! LOL

ahh... whatevers!! coz I had fun at the movies!!!!! Iron Man 2 was awesummmmm!!!!
& is it just me or is Tony Stark looking hotter & hotter??? also, I loved Scarlett Johansson's character in this movie... she was hawwwtttt!! hahaha.. I might color my hair red & get it permed just like hers.. just because she was hot in that movie... LOL... go watch it, you'll know what I'm talkin about... haha

    Much love Kimberley xxx

  4. nice pics! and you're right about roy's, it seems like a laidback type of restaurant with the tiki torches and hawaiian thing going on, but yup it's not. food is great, but it's not the first restaurant that comes to my mind when i want to eat out. haha.

    thanks for following and commenting on my blog, btw. :D

  5. Ben & Jerry's churro sundae?! That sounds absolutely AMAZING! Loved your OOTD, especially the sandals!

  6. so pretty! your skin is glowing <3

    i've never tried Lush skincare products before. looking forward to your review! xx

  7. Ooh Roy's, they have one here on Guam, but its more of a semi-fine dining restaurant here. They make bomb souffles though. :)

  8. I love the flintstones pictures:) and I cantttt wait to see iron man 2! I'm obsessed with RDJ and scarlett johansson looks gorgeous! xxx
