UCLA Camp



Hayylooo Folks ;)!


I was done with The States traveling because it reached the time I have to get into the camp life!
So I flew from San Francisco down to the city of angels! 


I was picked up at the airport by one of the camp's mentors and altogether with other strangers we hopped on a car to start our UCLA Life!






It was a film camp held by an organisation called US Performing Arts, they held all kind of arts camp all over the states' university. It was pretty cool surrounded by such amazing people who share your passions.



So all students and mentors stay in the dorm room they put us in, and luckily (as I really think I'm lucky), I have a single! no roomies! wooooot wooooooooot!!





It look really campus ish. Hahahahaha 
but it was pretty comfortable and clean, I love it a lot!


One thing I have to mention, all these camps have age limit, the widest limit is my camp it's 16-20 and guess what, I am 20 and it happen to be super strange because most of the campers are like 17!! So I have to spend my entire two weeks with the youngers, but they are super awesome, and I just feel like they're my friends which I don't know I blended myself into the age or what. Lol



And also, in this 2 weeks everyone was grouped up into a group of 9 plus one mentors. Another funny story is that my group is a group of 9 guys and 1 girl, which is, yes, me.



And according to the history I'm not really comfortable being around guys because I went to girls school for 12 years and I'm currently in Arts field college so it just full of girls.. But you know what, these guys are amazing that I feel super duper comfortable with and I'm just so happy spending time with them! How lucky am I!?



Not just we studying and doing film production all time 24/7 
We have time to chill as well! 



Now I'm taking you to the place called Westwood
It's like a downtown UCLA, which is probably better than Downtown LA, according to what people usually told me about that place.





Sorry for the blurness of the picture. This is the best I promise.. :-/



So, Westwood is pretty amazing. 
It full of quality restaurant, coffee shops, shopping place like Urban Outfitters or American Apparel, there're theaters as well!
and even their ice-cream place was super famous. People lined up there like crazy!










This is the famous sandwich place called Fat Sal's
My mentor said that they have all of the fat stuffs in the world here and you can have whatever you want just create your own sandwich, throw your favourite fat stuffs in it!!



Well, according to the menu, it scares me too! :p
So I decided to have just a fries with fat sauce (that's what they called!)









This is a glimpse of my groupie at In&Out hahhahaa









UCLA has such a decent food too. There cafeteria is pretty big and clean and there also variety of food.. Though, everyday is not much different but in a day they provide choice.. which is cool..


According to the camp, they took cellphones away during they day and give it back to campers in specific time so I couldn't take much pictures of the campus there but since I'm still in L.A and I'm pretty sure I'll go chill myself around there again so you guys will get to see how beautiful that place is! <3










On the 4th of July,  the camp took all students to Hollywood Walk of Fame, which funny because it's where I live right now. Lol 


So we walked around the place, exploring and sitting around just to take our holiday off.. which is yes some American friends of mine feel pretty patriotic but well, I'm not from here so.. Yea :p


These footprints I'm showing you are the ones in front of The Chinese Theater. And yes, it's the famous place Hollywood stars came pumped their hands and feet it and took pictures of it. It'd be super awesome if someday I have my prints there too hahahahha

*daydreaming*








Here's another famous place in Hollywood Boulevard. It's called Hollywood N Highland Centre.



Well, sincerely, I asked everyone I know about what is the meaning of all these sculpture and monuments here and no one can give me answer.. They just all blanked out.. Hahaha

Only thing that I know is that it becomes a signature of the hotel in this centre. Lowe.
(if I misspell it, my apology.)







If any of you guys know what it means let me know in the comment! <3


And of course! Time for some ice-cream!!!
I love how my friends love ice cream as much as I do and they actually stopping at Cold Stone just to sit and have an ice cream talk. I love it!






As far as dessert and sweet, Hollywood N Highland Centre have a Sweet shop called Sweet!
and as they signed in front of their door, it's the Biggest sweet shop in the world!

Which yea, I don't know if it's true or not but it's pretty huge.. 


They got every kind of sweet you can think of in the world!
MMs, Hershey, Sneakers, mash mellow, candy cane, chewy in different flavour, and Willy Wonka!







Sadly, they don't have one thing, and it's my favourite of all time.. Crunchy!!
It's pretty sad.. but you've got all the choices in the world there so maybe it is fine.. 

What's your favourtie?








After spending quite a while in Hollywood blvd, we hopped on a bus to spend our 4th of July night at Hollywood Bowl! This was an amazing experience for me, it just.. I don't think this will ever happened anytime in my life because 


1. I'm not American
2. I don't live around here






So we came here to watch concert of a gentleman whom I already forgot his name..

His famous song is 'You Raise Me Up' I bet you all have heard of it at least once..
I actually have such experience with this song!!

In high school, 9th Grade, we have to held a father's day ceremony and the last song we sang to our dads was this You Raise Me Up and it's pretty incredible to actually having this opportunity to hear the singer sing it himself.. I was stunned.. 








Well, because, personally, I like this kinda of activity where I get to sit down, enjoy to wind blow and nature and here it's such a good place and this guy sing kinda amazing too. So I was pretty happy :)



and speaking of the 4th of July!

Here come the fireworks!!










It was an amazing night after all. The film stuffs in my camp was awesome too!


I'll talk to you guys soon,
Have a great week :)
