Labour Day Weekend

Monday night and the end of a nice long weekend. Don´t you just love when you realize on a Sunday night that there is one more day of the weekend. Yay!

We have had a very relaxing weekend. Some bbqs with friends, sweating doing nothing in the hot weather ( I love love love the SoCal weather!!). Today we were going to the OC Zoo in Irvine Regional Park but once we got there, the entrance was closed because there was no more parking spaces available! How disappointing, but as usual we had a back up plan; dim sum at Irvine Spectrum. I had seen the restaurant plenty of times walking past it and it really looked like a typical Chinese dim sum restaurant. I used to hate these places when travelling to Shanghai but now, not having had any Chinese food (and I mean Chinese Chinese food) for over a year, I actually looked forward to it. Big plus was of course I knew there was not going to be anything "disgusting" on the menu.  Turned out to be nice, even if the food was somewhat Americanized. Pretty sure I never had edamame or egg rolls in China. But hey, better than chicken feet!

                                            Bought some yummy dips at Bristol Farm´s

Also managed to rent a real crappy movie tonight, Battleship, even hubby thought it was bad so you can imagine how poor it was.

Ser riktigt gott ut. Roligt att upptäcka nya trevliga matställen. Har inte sett Battleship men känner nog inte att det är min typ av film heller.

Definitivt roligt med nya matställen, man blir så lätt inkörd på de gamla.
