L.A. & San Diego Trip

14th February 2003 - 17th February 2003



Day 1

I took a day off on Friday, 14th Feb, which happened to be Valentine's Day too. The following Monday was President's Day, a public holiday and I went on a 4-day trip to L.A. (Los Angeles) and San Diego with Colin, Catherine, Dax and Juan Juan.

We departed from Colin's place on Thursday night in a rental car and arrived about 5 to 7 hours later on Friday morning. But it was too early to check into the hotel and so Universal Studio was our first stop of our tour... it was large and there's shows to see and rides to take

There's so many pictures we have taken... so enjoy them all. =)
