Selamat Hari Raya 2012

Dalam Kerendahan Hati ada Ketinggian budi
Dalam Kemiskinan Harta ada kekayaan Jiwa
Dalam Kelembutan Lidah ada keterlanjuran kata
Dalam Gurau senda tentu ada khilaf dan dosa
Mohon Kemaafan dan Selamat Hari Raya Aidilfitri
Maaf Zahir & Batin

Calico Ghost Town & Needles

Second day of our vacation, we leave Los Angeles and travel to Needles. It is a long drive and we planned to visit Calico Ghost Town before we stop at needles for overnight and continue our journey to Grand Canyon for the next day. But before we leave Los Angeles we want to see the HOLLYWOOD sign of course. We asked the person at the hotel where we can see the sign and he told us to go to Griffith Park Observatory. Set our GPS to that place. it up in the hill and passed so many beautiful houses on the way to the hills.
The best view we can took with our camera.Hmmm need larger camera

As what we planned. The 1st day of our holiday, destination Universal Studio.
The park open at 9:00AM, so we were there earlier to avoid long queuing at the entrance. When we were there, it is already busy with people who waiting for the ticket counter to be open. We are lucky because we already bought our ticket online. For ticket price you can find it here.

Studio Tour.
Our Comment from the above rides: Unforgettable experience. All in 3D but the feeling is like riding the real roller coaster. Studio Tour is amazing, they have the largest 3D show for King Kong 360. So if you have a chance to go to Universal Studio don't miss the fun. Especially the King Kong. We felt that we were surrounded by the Dinosours..haha. They also show us how is the stunt movies made. They show us a few scene that used in movie making.
