Orange County Fair

Last Saturday we went to the Orange County Fair. This is an annual and a month long festival at Costa Mesa in Orange County, California that is held every summer. The fair first took place in the year 1890 in Sta. Ana and one of the highlight of this event in that year there were some minor exhibits and a horse race. The early fairs consist of live stock shows, horse races and some carnivals.

We went early in the morning and paid the entrance fee of $3 for each person. But if you'll come a bit later, the price goes up to $10.

The fair also includes a trade show where we went inside to see some product exhibit of the vendors.

Food vendors piled up outside to sell their delicacies.

We left the fair around 3 p.m. and decided to take our late lunch at Z-Cafe in Costa Mesa mall.

A Day In El Dorado Park

Yesterday was a surprised visit to El Dorado Park in Long Beach. A surprise because I never had an idea that my friend will bring me to this place. Our original plan was to go to Raw Dust Arts Gallery Fair in Laguna Beach. My friend fetched me in Starbuck, Buena Park along Las Palmas avenue. We went to Cerritos at Goldilocks for a buffet. El Dorado Park was approximately 15-minute drive from Cerritos.

The main entrance of the park
A small lake in the park
a small stream and behind is a bridge
In the park, you'll pass some bridges. Just before getting into the trail, there are directions and in the map you are given which trail you have to go, either in 3 or 5 miles trail. But between a trail, is a path whether you continue for another mile trail or on a two mile trail. There are some animals in the park and on the lake are turtles and fishes. Squirrels, birds and some species can be found here.

Some bench are available if you are tired walking
In the trail are trails to make your experience cozy
direction if you want to continue the trail on 1 or 2 mile
bufferfly caught in the act
We sat on the bench for meditation
you can hug a tree for grounding
setting my camera on
This park is good for meditation and if you want to commune in nature without going far from the city, El Dorado is just good as a small forest in the city.

Preparing For The Next Getaway

Most of  my time I go to Starbucks as my hang-out and spend 6 to 8 hours daily. Usually I go by different Starbucks places. When I had nothing to do, as everyone does, I open my laptop and spend my time largely on Facebook, Google or watching videos on You Tube. I leave home between 10 or 11 a.m. and come back around 10 at night.  This is my usually routine when I am not going to places.

I'm almost 3 months to Uncle Sam's place yet I haven't been to the core of my intent and this is due to several factors involved. After all, traveling is an expensive hobby, just like photography but they both go hand and hand. Experience will not be complete without taking photos so we know the importance of photography when traveling and blogging.

I am pushing the button the best way I can, so I will be able to get these places at the soonest time. Right now, I am still preparing for my next getaway.

On Twin Flame Concept

A TWIN FLAME connection can be hardly verbalized, but you KNOW it in your heart that this person is your twin flame even without saying any words...the good thing about this connection is when you see this person, you''ll see the beauty in you, the bad and the flaw that you will need to work on..you don't have to romanticize this connection or over-idealized this person as a perfect fit of put it as a standard to any other relationships as twin flame is purely spiritual, and you have to let go of your expectations. the RECOGNITION may not be instantaneous, but as you GROW and LEARN spiritually, you will recognize this person..you cry because you see yourself in another body..and you cry because of the yearning, and the PAIN that yo feel is the mark of your REMEMBERING after your have been split apart from your twin soul eons ago..the only way that both of you can merge as one is to LOVE YOURSELF and let go of your own fears and ego....
