Tokyo Table
50 N. La Cienega Blvd.
Beverly Hills, CA 90211
(310) 657-9500

Hammer is going to NY for training and moving to HK afterwards. We had a farewell dinner @ Tokyo Table in Beverly Hills.

In terms of the atmosphere, it's nice and upscale, but at the same time it's not so uptight and maintain a kind of casual Japanese restaurant feel. Rather than a Japanese restaurant, it's more like a fusion restaurant. They serve J-style Eel bowl in Korean style stone pot, and they have sweet butter toast on the dessert menu.(但那真的就是甜版的棺材板!!!)

現實的世界是結果論的

即使大家再怎麼強調過程的美好和從過程中學習的重要
但我們在衡量人或事的時候
很難不用這個最快最直接的方式--結果(也就是事或人目前呈現出來的樣貌)

所以說
努力的目的並不是為了美好回憶, 而是為了結果
沒有結果的話,過去的一切努力 都是白費

我得堅持下去

Time Magazine selected the 25 websites that most people are dependent on...
10 out of the 25 are true to me.
See which sites we do live without...

1. Amazon.com : without explanations...
2. BBC.co.uk : I did use it to train my English listening skills when I was in Taiwan... but haven't used it since I got done my TOEFL... It's helpful, for sure.
3. Citysearch.com : but I use Yelp.com more and more often now... Its function of Information provider+ Social Networking attracts me more than Citysearch does.
4. Craigslist.org : I did use it a lot when i was looking to buy or sell old stuff
5. Del.icio.us
6. Digg.com
7. Ebay.com
8. ESPN.com
9. Facebook.com : I do maintain an Facebook page... but so as Friendster, MySpace, and LinkedIn
10. FactCheck.org
11. Flickr.com: but I use its rival site - Picasa more frequently now
12. Google.com: for sure
13. HowStuffWorks.com
14. The Internet Movie Database: it's a great great movie database. it has everything about movie industry...
15. YouTube: no doubt! I use it to watch Taiwanese TV shows... haha!!!
16. Kayak.com
17. National Geographic.com: I'm never a National Geographic Channel kind of person...
18. Netflix.com: I use its rival site, blockbuster, instead. I still like to have the real retail stores that we can look around, exchange and return DVDs.
19. Technorati.com
20. TMZ.com
21. USA.gov: I am not a citizen...
22. Television WithoutPity.com
23. WebMD.com: It's good to know this site....
24. Wikipedia.org : The best knowledge source for me...
25. Yahoo.com

When I first saw the long line outside of this store, I thought they had some big discount. But when I looked closely, I found that was a "Kwik-E-Mart"!

It's a store converted from 7-Eleven. It's basically a 7-Eleven with the store name in the Simpsons that carries Don't -nuts, Buzz Cola, and some Simpsons souvenirs other than regular convenience store products.

There is always a line, but visiting this store is definitely a fun experience. It's like a mini Simpsons theme park. So, remember to bring your camera with you when you visit Kwik-E-Mart!

A great example of Reverse Product Placement. However, I think they could carry more Simpsons merchandise to boost their sales. ( I noticed a lot of people are just looking and taking pictures in the store without spending any money.)

Cafe Laurent
4243 Overland Ave
Culver City, CA 90230
(310) 558-8622

It's such a shame that I didn't try it until now. Cafe Laurent is a nice little French Cafe right down the street from where I live.
According to my experience of trying out the most popular brunch places around LA so far, I think they have the best waffle in town! Their salmon omelette is also very good!
