I'm home!

Actually, I got home three days ago.

Fortunately, the ride was much smoother on the way back home.

And yes, the TSA opened my luggage, I found one of those Notice of baggage inspection notes when I open my luggage.
Good thing that I used one of those TSA locks, so the TSA was able to open it without breaking the lock.

Going home tomorrow

Visited the California Science Center today.
got to see the space shuttle Endeavour. It is Magnificent!
Seeing the space shuttle up close is quite an experience^_^


Of course, I didn't miss the seven story tall IMAX theater.
I saw the "Space Station"
The screen is bigger than I expected. 
I picked a seat right in the middle of the theater, the 3D effects was so good that it felt like I could almost touch the astronauts leg hairs. This is an educational documentary film, and I'm checking out hot astronauts legs, I feel so perverted right now...^_^"

Well, this is the last day I'll be in L.A.
Going home tomorrow.

Thanks for all the supports!

Sunday in L.A. Drawing Hercules on paper

Went to Eagles LA again last night.
It was amazing, tons of hot bearded guys, its almost like a bear buffet ^_^"
Although loud music and a big crowd isn't really my kind of fun, I had to admit just hanging around the corner drooling over the hot guys is totally worth it ^_^

Had Ice-cream for breakfast this morning...No particular plans for today.
So I decided to draw something.

Visited Venice Beach on Thursday

Finally went to Venice beach, bus was packed with people that day.

Very nice and sunny day, lots of surfers breaking waves.
I had to walk like a penguin on the sands to take this picture, because I was all dress up in long sleeves and long cargo pants with boots on.

 Was hoping to stalk some bodybuilders at the muscle beach gym, oh well, perhaps better luck next time.

I was very Lucky this day!

Took the train to San Bernardino on Wednesday. 

Arrived at the San Bernardino Train Station, it looks very new and clean, but located in a very remote area.
The city is basically in the middle of nowhere, however unlike L.A., it's nice and quiet out here...no crowded public transportation. (bus drivers are also more friendly here.)

Me stalking children in the school playground.^^"
(this is Arrowhead Elementary)

 After taking the time to admire the famous Arrowhead landmark. I look for the closest McDonald's to get a milk shake. Then I notice something was wrong, my backpack was gone!
  First I thought I must have left it somewhere on the road when I was  putting all my attention on taking pictures and recording videos. So I track back the same way I came and found nothing. I was starting to get worried at this time, although there,s nothing valuable in the backpack, just some food, water, guide book and travel schedules. I guess the only possibility left is that I left it on the bus. so I gave up searching for it and hope to find it some how on the way back to the train station.
  I found the nearest bus stop and waited for the bus for nearly a hour, and the bus finally arrived.
  Lucky, it was the same bus that I left my backpack on, I was so glad when I saw my backpack at the front of the bus next to the driver, she told me someone found it and brought it to her. I was so grateful!
(but too bad didn't got my milk shake again^^)

Returning to LA from Bent-Con


Waiting for the train to LA.

Instant noodles again for dinner, was very tired that night.

on the next day, I took the metro rail to a toys r us store, and bought a pack of 3D starwars playing cards.
had some food on the way back at this restaurant called Tom Boy's (doesn't look like its lesbian related^^")


 Still had time that night so I decided to visit a bear bar~^^
The bartender was very friendly and sweet, but he wanted my ID for ordering beer, don't know its because we Asians don't look like our age, or is it just me^^"

Bent-Con Day3 final

I was invited to a nude life drawing the second night.
First time had such an experience, drawing real naked people.(didn't had any time to drool over the models, because of the very limited time to draw each pose.^_^)


A very special electronic store near the convention.
I bought a copy of The Never Ending Story Blu-Ray disc, and went to get breakfast.(I wanted a vanilla milk shake, but the machine was under maintenance, so I had OJ instead.^_^)

Gifts from Jezza and Patrick, I'm so grateful!
Please visit http://jezzasmilez.blogspot.com/ for Jezza's Works.
And http://www.classcomics.com/ for Patrick Fillion's Works.

Finally, completed my three days of Bent-Con, I'm heading back to LA on the train first thing in the morning.
The convention was very fun, but I'd recommend to go with friends(if you wish to attend next year), so you don't end up wondering around trying to figure out what to do next, like me.^_^

Bent-Con Day Two

 Woke up at 2:00pm today. missed a few events I've wanted to attend, but at least I'm feeling no more jet lag right now.
  After I did some drawing at the life drawing stage, went back to my hotel room to eat something because I was very hungry after drawing for almost 2hrs. Somehow the fridge was too cold so I got frozen carrots for dinner. its not bad actually^_^
 
 these are the pictures I drew at the life drawing stage.
