It's 2 weeks into the New Year already! This year is flying mehn but we shall also fly on the wings of the MIGHTY GOD from whom all blessings come
So here is the conclusion of Los Angeles trip gist make you hear word.
Rodeo Drive - Pick one answer.
a) I shopped so much till I dropped then parked my bentley, called Posh to come over so we can have tea at the Cafe a la Aroma.
b)I drove past and hissed saying "what is in the silly Rodeo drive sef it is not even that fancy and I am sure those folks don't stock my style"
Camarillo Outlets - Some good bargains here, you've seen the video from driving.
Universal Studio - Went for the Blast Zone, Shrek 4D, Terminator, Water World, Sound Effects, Jurassic Park, Studio Tour. All enjoyable experience but top for me was Studio Tour. Another cheesy clip below. P.S I recently found out windows movie maker on my system, so be ready to endure more cheesy clips from me in the future...ha ha ha haha/
Hollywood Star Walk - Not much to this one, we just walked up and down a bit. Apparently nominated stars pay $25k for the priviledge of their name on the walkway - so says our Tour guide. JULIA ROBERTS and CLINT EASTWOOD do not have a star on the walk of fame although DONALD TRUMP has one so I guess it's okay...
Hollywood Museum - Good thing this was part of the LA GO CARD thingy, if it was a cash over the counter, I would have requested a refund. It was quite below par.
Hollywood Trolley Tour - DRY: Tour guide trying too hard to be funny. Saw paramount studio, nickelodeon studis, CBS studio, I suppose the only highlight was we got on the grounds of Hollywood Bowl and got closer view of the Hollywood Sign.
Kodak Theatre Tour - 30mins tour but well worth it. I was able to rehearse my Oscar speech live. It was cool to hear some inside gist of the Oscars e.g. The stars are encouraged to go to the loo when commercial is on and their is usually a sit in guy/lady who takes their sit while they are gone all so the seat does not show as empty on TV....I'm like who cares if seat is empty or not.
Gauman's Chinese Theatre - Did not go inside the theatre just milled outside reading the hand/foot prints and writings from some of the stars. Missed seeing Will Smith doing his own imprinting (12th of December) dang.
Movie Stars Home Tour / Beverly Hills - Not even a sparkle did I see talk less of movie star. However it was nice seeing Peter Falk's house (I like the guy, his character can be annoying but i think he is adorable and quite intelligent). At at a point our Tour guide was telling us the profile of the actor who lives in a particular house ending with the statement "....he is currently in UK promoting his new movie I am Legend". "Will Smith!!!" my sister and I shrieked at the same time. Tour guide replied "wow I see our ladies from London are quite excited, I think I just made their day" "YES! Of course, WILL IS A BROTHER" came my response. "Ok?! Y'all heard her, they say he is their brother". She missed the gist. Woreva, abeg help me interprete to her the concept of A Brother with respect to awon temi a.k.a my peeps.
She was even more puzzled when we did not bat an eyelid at seeing David Beckhamn's house "...my ladies from London are the first Londoners not to comment on seeing David's Beckham residence" she questioned over her microphone. Wanted to reply that I am not a Londoner but ignore her as I was strategising with my sis on coming back to hang out with the Prince of Bel Air. David ko Peteru ni?!, we are talking Will he is talking David - 7up the difference is clear.
I rest my aroye (gist) on Los Angeles, like they say where I come from, the end is close of cinema.
