escalator, originally uploaded by awungfoo.

finally had a chance to visit the downtown library. it's very big, spacious, and very very yellow. I forgot how quiet it is inside a library considering how many people were at the computer stations and lounging around.
I was very impressed with the layout but realized that elevators get you to every floor whereas the escalators takes to you every other odd floor.

pike place market is always a fun place to visit on a busy sunday morning. we had some pastries at Le Panier and walked around looking at the amazing flower and fresh fruit stands. somehow, we didn't end up buying anything but took lots of pictures. I think the color on this one is wickedly amazing!

We're off to LA tomorrow at 6:30am and coming back 5:30pm. A quick buying trip to stock up the stores.

beautiful chair from Habits. But $700, I don't think so. Very comfy and sturdy though.

tentacles, originally uploaded by awungfoo.

We went to Lincoln Sq last night to see Eagle Eye. It really gave me a headache as the action was filmed way too close and the explosion were just gratuitous. Shia's turning out to be a great actor but the premise of this movie has been done before quit a few times. Nothing new or exciting, in fact, preposterous.

I think I'll pop in Transformers and watch the Behind the scenes and deleted out takes. They were showing it at Costco and it looked pretty bad ass.

just playing around in the rain with the macro lens. I guess Fall is here. it's been drizzling, wet, and cool. Another 6 months before we see sun again.

Invisible Target

Rented this from Blockbuster. I actually thought it was very kickass action packed movie. I watched the special feature and Nicolas Tse said, "this is how we do action movies, Hong Kong Style!"

I'm sure Danny get DL it as I was surfing the net for some pics of this movie and you can watch it online. It's better on a big TV! If you haven't seen it, rent it. I think I'll be renting Benny Chan's other movies, ie Gen-X Cops, etc.

Stars Jaycee Chan (Jackie Chan's son) and I guess HK hotties Nicolas Tse and Shawn Yue.

Oh, and HBO's TRUE BLOOD is worth watching. The first episode was FREE. Another show to watch.

only a kid will play in this freezing cold water.

how many bars?

how many bars?, originally uploaded by awungfoo.

Had a fun day at Coulon Beach Park. Tyler gave me a heart attack because I took him and Tanner to the play area and in less than 2 seconds, Tyler disappeared on me. One second he was going up the jungle gym with Tanner and the next second ...gone. I asked Tanner where did Tyler go and he said, "Tyler never leaves the play area. He's around here." So I'm looking for him and think maybe he's inside the tubes. Finally, I called back to Tanner and I'm freaking out that this kid has run off somewhere like to the water. Thank God he found his way back to Teri. OMG I tell ya!

this is the perfect time to visit Volunteer Park (Capitol Hill) in Seattle.
The dinner plate dahlias are ginormous and spectacular. This is actually a mum and not a dahlia.

Neil's visiting his folks back on the East Coast. I'm left to manage the stores and today, today was fun fun fun. Our new employee overlooked the schedule and thought she was coming in at noon instead of 9:45. I wasn't too thrilled about that to say the least.

It really needs to be steamed. They sent this to us by mistake and won't take it back. They said I ordered it. So unless you're a size 0, this won't flatter anyone. Luckily, our staff are petite and everything looks great on them!

2 cakes and 2 tarts

2 cakes and 2 tarts, originally uploaded by awungfoo.

Yup. 4 of them. Had a great dinner. Lots of food and my first attempt at ribs. Considering it was finished in the oven under low broil, it came out tasty and moist. I wanted it to fall off the bones but that probably would have taken another hour.

Thanks everyone for coming over and celebrating Mom's bday!

Happy Birthday

maggie, originally uploaded by awungfoo.

Sometimes she looks like Danny, but most of the time, she looks like Ivy. She sure has plumped up quickly and grown a lot!

We had Dim Sum at Renton Seafood Restaurant. It's a bit more Americanized than I like but not bad.

series, originally uploaded by awungfoo.

I haven't got a clue these books were so popular. I was at Target and the last copy was just sitting there on the shelf. I overheard these 2 women discussing the story line and the upcoming movie. Since I was leaving for Vegas, I picked up Twilight and instantly, I was hooked.

I picked up New Moon in Vegas and the lady behind the counter at the bookstore said that the printing press has sold out of Twilight (1st book).

I picked up the last 2 at Barnes & Noble.

If Teri or Danny wanna borrow the 1st 2 books, I'm done.
