Tonite, I had dinner with KD and I persuaded Jas to come along as a buffer cos I had just recently had dinner with KD and didn't think I could take in the conversation all by myself. I decided on Congee Noodle House on Broadway cos it was closed for so many months and it has finally reopened. Wow, it had a mini makeover, never seen the restaurant so clean and now offering fresh and live seafood. Menu stayed the same and the food was pretty much the same, it also seems that most of the staff were the same. We chatted, well KD mostly chatted and we just enjoyed the meal. Of course, it was my treat (as I owed her a dinner) and would only allow Jas to pay $5 cos I dragged her along.

Tonight, HonHon and I had dinner at The Cannery which is our first time ever at this restaurant. We had no idea how to get there but googled it for directions. What a drive we had, once we reached McGill, we needed to drive thru the Port Authority and check in/out at the security points, we almost thought we were at the wrong place. Driving down the quiet and small street for another minute or two, we nearly missed it cos I was driving a bit too fast, we found a full parking lot but lucky for us, we pulled in when someone was pulling out and we got a good spot right by the front door. Wow, the restaurant had amazing views and we could understand why it was a full house. This is one of the best restaurants to enjoy a seafood dinner and we couldn't wait to be seated. We started off with a Seafood Platter for two (which had a fresh selection of seafood), HonHon decided on a Swordfish entree while I opted to go with the Parsley Garlic Linguini (tossed with fresh chantrelle mushrooms, mussels, clams, smoked black cod and bay scallops, finished with Grana Padano Parmesan cheese) - boy it was super delish!! But I wish I chose the salmon chef special as I found the linguini a bit heavy (very creamy) but it was very yummy! It was a lovely night and we def enjoyed it, will have to come back!

Going back for the Brush Collection just cos it's so freakin cute!! I wanted to buy the mirror but I know I can get a much cuter one in Asia so I opted to not buy that one. Love the items, wish there was a bit more make up that I could pick up but I don't like MAC eyeshadows and the lip moisturizer is SPF 15 (which I am allergic to) and I don't use face powder :(

Where The Truth Lies

A classic duo — Lanny is the manic comedian, while Vince is his cool and collected straight man—the boys know how to make audiences roar with laughter at their jokes, or shed tears at one of their famous telethons. They are at the top of their game, wealthy, powerful, and enormously popular, when something terrible happens to threaten their success. Inexplicably, a dead beauty turns up in their hotel suite. Their reputations are sullied but, thanks to rock-solid alibis, neither is charged with the crime. Their partnership, on the other hand, is destroyed. Lanny and Vince manage to salvage separate careers, but years pass, with neither speaking to the other, or to anyone else, about the girl's death. The reason for the break-up of Morris and Collins becomes one of show business' greatest mysteries. Fifteen years later, in the 1970's, up and coming writer Karen O'Connor (Alison Lohman), decides to turn this cold case into a hot story. This includes the discovery of a kinky menage-a-trois that may have led to a murder, Karen unravels a serpentine, shocking tale of talent and treachery, love and lust, buried secrets and betrayed trust. WHERE THE TRUTH LIES is written and directed by Atom Egoyan, produced by Robert Lantos, and stars Kevin Bacon, Colin Firth, Alison Lohman and Rachel Blanchard.

Bright Shiny Morning by James Frey
One of the most celebrated and controversial authors in America delivers his first novel—a sweeping chronicle of contemporary Los Angeles that is bold, exhilarating, and utterly original.
Dozens of characters pass across the reader's sight lines—some never to be seen again—but James Frey lingers on a handful of LA's lost souls and captures the dramatic narrative of their lives: a bright, ambitious young Mexican-American woman who allows her future to be undone by a moment of searing humiliation; a supremely narcissistic action-movie star whose passion for the unattainable object of his affection nearly destroys him; a couple, both nineteen years old, who flee their suffocating hometown and struggle to survive on the fringes of the great city; and an aging Venice Beach alcoholic whose life is turned upside down when a meth-addled teenage girl shows up half-dead outside the restroom he calls home.
Throughout this strikingly powerful novel there is the relentless drumbeat of the millions of other stories that, taken as a whole, describe a city, a culture, and an age. A dazzling tour de force, Bright Shiny Morning illuminates the joys, horrors, and unexpected fortunes of life and death in Los Angeles.
