Upon finishing our meal…silly me…forgot about the weather…I just had a t-shirt and pants on and was freezing my ass off! The wind was BRRRRRR…luckily Naomi (the Star World chick!) borrowed me her scarf and she also paid the for food. (Thanks gurl!).
And then jeng jeng jeng …it was jalan jalan time … I felt like a dumb blonde when I asked one of the guys where is the Hollywood Walk of Fame when he replied “Well, sweetie look down…you are in Hollywood Walk of Fame!” (facepalm…alamak malunyerrrrr…but then I didn’t know ma…and then I looked over …Kodak Theater…huhuhuh…OH MY GOODNESS…IS THIS REALLY HAPPENING?

|Famous celeb spotting area|
We walked by the Virgin Records shop (why hello there Sir Richard Branson!) and then decided to take the tour by van to explore Beverly Hills, Bel Air, Mullholand Drive Rodeo Drive…damn I can’t believe am saying this. The tour took us by most celebrities house…or should I say palace…some are so HUUUUUUUUUUUGE , you can fit a whole country into it! The guide was like…this is Britney’s house, Leo’s place, Mel Gibson…and went on and on…God knows if he was telling the truth…and we ran into some paparazzi as well so I guess he was telling the truth. It was just 6 pm but the sky looked like it was 11 pm. Culture shock betul! The weather sabo us…it started to pour so we had to chow but I still managed to snap some picture. I was snapping away…don’t know what picture but cam-whoring the whole time!
|Dang it!!!! Wish I had bump into Cyclops or McDreamy! :(|
The driver dropped us back at Hollywood Boulevard and the road was closed for premiere of ‘Enchanted’…was hoping to catch a glimpse of McDreamy but tak jumpa L. Headed back to hotel called my mom (excited giler updating her!) and knocked off till morning. Wat a day!!!
