Second week of November 2016 Happenings

wok

Kitty loves to chill in the window with mass killa face on.

This week I decided to buy a WoK after seeing some Japanese/Chinese cooking styles and was like hell yes let’s fry this shit up. So the WoK I bought from Krogers turned out to rust after a week (piece of shit) however the first 3 meals I made out of it were pure bliss and beauty. Also hit up another antique store and tried to climb a mountain. Wok along!

Downtown LR Grub Sesh + Antique Finds

Had a gift certificate from our realtor for $100 to a place called Bruno’s Little Italy in downtown Little Rock so finally made our way downtown to try it out, however when we tried to go in they were still closed at 4:50 and didn’t open till 5, so instead of being a good business and wouldn’t even let us sit on the bench we said fuck this place let’s go next door to this place called Samantha’s Tap Room which was pretty cool.

However the Dinner entree’s didn’t look that appetizing so after a few drinks + apps we headed back to use our gift cert at Brunos. Also we hit up an antique mall before all this and find some good stuff.

Cider + Greyhoud. Tasty Artichoke (marinated in soy, BS) Some shroomies. Not bad, but not over the top good for downtown Little Rock.

WDW DAY 6: Last day excursion at Hollywood Studios

Beautiful, slightly hot day.

It’s finally come to our last day in Florida on our 2016 adventure to Disney World, Universal Studios and always the “sad” day, however we will return soon and the magical adventures will once again come! This is also a super pumped day for me because we finally were able to make a reservation at 50’s Prime Time Cafe which is literally known as one of the best gluten free restaurants in all of Orlando, and it turned out to be awesome. This park should also charge half price, literally 80% of the park is under construction such an eye sore right now, pathetic D, lower the price to Hollywood.

Always wanted to know about this statue so I did some research this time.

As you make your way down Hollywood Boulevard, towards the Sorcerer’s Hat, on your left you will find a bronzed statue of a cameraman working a movie camera.

Underneath the statue is a sign with a quote, “Movies are a medium of expression like a symphony orchestra.. or a painter’s brush or canvas” -Walt Disney.  Why is this life sized statue there and who is it?

The statue was made by Aldo and Andrea Favilli in 1995.  Andrea Favilli was a Disney Imaginner, who joined Imagineering in 1987 as a laead concept designer.  Favilli worked on a number of projects in Disneyland, the Magic Kingdom, EPCOT, Typhoon Lagoon, Disney Island, Pleasure Island, the Animal Kingdom, Tokyo Disneyland and Disneyland Paris.

The statue itself is based on the original statue that Andrea made with his father that is located in Hollywood across from the Warner Brothers Studio in Burbank.   Interestingly enough, the original statue was commissioned by Roy E. Disney and Shamrock Holdings, which was meant to be a piece of art that celebrated the art of film making.

The man in the statue is a generic film maker, not based on anyone per se.  Imagineers had a replica built at the Studios since the statue’s message of honoring film making fit in perfectly with the theme park.

WDW Day 5: Universal Studios & Harry Potter

Looks like a cat to me.

Day 5 WDW: Well not really WDW but still all in the same universe of sorts, we wanted to come specifically to check out Diagon Alley since last time the park was closing and we didn’t even discover it until by accident since it’s hidden! Crazy I know but finally we made it so heres some photos of our adventure! I’m not sure if it was because of the people or weather or park in general but this time around Universal Orlando seemed down right “ghetto” to me in a way.. I don’t know why.. it seems they have lost their class.

Famous Earth at the entry way!

Not sure why we wanted to check this place out, but none the less Hello Kitty was there. Their marketing team is whack trying to say Hello Kitty is not a fucking cat, what’s wrong with chu?

WDW Day 4 PM: Animal Kingdom!

I think they are pink because they eat shrimp?

After our fishing excursion we went back to our hotel Port Orleans and changed and showered the fish off of us. Then set sail in our trusted minivan to Animal Kingdom (which we knew would be the hardest day). Since none of us are in shape and it’s the most treacherous territory to walk and it was also super hot that day which we were hoping would be a cool day!

Anyways I love Animal Kingdom, especially since Safari Mickey is my version of Mickey.

 

These parrots love to greet you when you walk in. No crackers pls (there gluten free).

Where to now? (busts out map) ok hit read more.

WDW Day 3: a super busy day at Magic Kingdom

Day 3 of our adventure begins heading over to the Magic Kingdom, and holy shit was it packed. Towards the end of the night we ended up getting the heck out of there and heading back to EPCOT, but here is my update/photos of that day since it’s technically the magical place! Also sorry for some of the image quality, had some mess ups with my new camera and a lot of the photos came out real grainy.

After exiting the Monorail, let’s see if it’s going to be a busy day?!

Getting closer to the gate *que magic kingdom music*
