Betel Juice! Betel Juice! Betel Juice!

Malaysia Kitchen for the World Comes to Los Angeles with a Special Evening of Malaysian Foodon Santa Monica’s Third Street Promenade , Friday, December 10



Checking in via FourSquare at Eat| Drink| Explore Malaysia Kitchen

The basic gist of Friday night is the Malaysian Trade Development Corp. is having a huge campaign to promote Malaysian cuisine and restaurants in the US.  Los Angeles just happens to be a part of this interesting sampling event of Malaysian Street food including a Malaysian Night Market. By the looks of the New York event it looks amazing. There’s going to be free samplings of classic street food from local places around LA. It is on Friday , Dec. 10 from 5:30  to 8:30. All foods can be sampled free of charge. I really hoping I can find some Betel Leaves for chewing.  More info here

The NYC event pictures are making me very interested in going
Yum! Malaysian food!

PAULETTE’S New Spot

If don’t know by now there’s a new place in town taking up space in the cupcakes trend. It’s definitely not a cupcake, but defiantly claiming itself to be just a good , if not better. The parisian macaron. Not the Macaroon as most people think, but a macaron. Reinventing the flavors are places like Bottega Louie and most recently the store Paulette. They have a location in Beverly Hills , one in San Fransisco and most recently, the one I went to visit in Little Tokyo. So new in fact that it doesn’t even pop up on their website. The flavors range from everyday to the extraordinary like Violet Cassis, which is my favorite. The new store is located at the Little Tokyo Galleria on the first floor. Call if you think I’m making this up 213-621-4457. More info @ http://www.paulettemacarons.com/

STARTING OCT. 8th

If your into TRON just as much as I am. You’ll enjoy this. Disney will start the interactive, digital world of “TRON: Legacy” . It will light up Hollywood Pictures Backlot as Disney gears up for the film’s release on December 17. This will be a cool opportunity to peek inside the world of this movie, and it’s available only to visitors of Disney California Adventure park.  ElecTRONica will transform Disney California Adventure park Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays this Fall. TRON fans and families can also enjoy the party seven days a week during Thanksgiving week and Christmas week.

For a limited time only.

I can’t believe I almost forgot to post this.  The Guy Hepner Gallery is Hosting Jason Alpher. The man has got talent.  He’s the artist who  did the awesome stand out outfits. Stoutfits basically. His very humorous fashionista experience in design comes out in classic bourgeoisie art. The show name may be a little long, but it explains everything. Visit the Guy Hepner Gallery for the Jason Alper installation entitled Proletarian Drift and the Enfranchisement of the Bourgeoisie in the 21st Century. I’m sure everyone Asian girl rockin a LV will enjoy the show. Maybe if they think they’re classy to show off a Louie V, they’ll actually pretend to be cultured for a day and look at some art.

Tonight …..

The Santa Monica Glow is a once a year opportunity for you to roam around Santa Monica beach at night and feel like a bum won’t ask you for change. Of course there will be bums asking for change, but they’re probably asking everyone else around you that night. Glow is a once a year night time pseudo night gallery. Featuring 20 artists commissioned to do amazing sculpture based on light and glowing as their motif. With the atmosphere and the lights, not to mention a pretty much amazing full moon tonight, you should highly consider making this your night. Best advice

Get there early, make reservations, map out the beach, bring a camera, and best option, bring a bike. No need for a lock either. There’s plenty of free bike valet all over the beach tonight. More info @
