10 days vacation with Sandra

Let me start by writing about my 10 days US trip with Sandra during the spring break.

Sandra's come to to US on 3/19 and stay here in L.A. for 10 days. We've had a really wonderful time together.

3/19: (Day 1) A boring day
It was a boring day for her. My students had their final examination today. She arrived at about 11am at LAX. We spent most of the day on proctoring and grading. But amazingly, I finished grading ~100 exams in one day. After that, we went to a Japanese buffet near Santa Monica Beach. It's quite good if we considered the price.
3/20: (Day 2) Big Day -- her Birthday!
It's her birthday today. We went to Universal Studio. And we went to a steak house for dinner. She couldn't finish her plate and I helped her to finish it. Hehe..So I actually had 1.5 pieces of steak..Yummy Yummy. Oh. I bought an M&M ice-cream birthday cake for her too.

3/21: (Day 3) Shopping day
We went to Ontario Mill outlet shopping mall today. We bought quite a lot of clothes. We went to friday night fellowship together in the evening. It's so good to go to fellowship together. We've also had prayer with bro/sis together at the end of the meeting. Nice~~
(Our first rental car. Looks good. But the air-conditioning didn't work!)(My second rental car. Now the air-conditioning works.)

3/22: (Day 4) Santa Barbara Trip & Whale watching
We went to Santa Barbara today and went to watch whale. We saw lots of whale, dolphin and sea lion. It was a wonderful trip. We went to Tsang auntie house to have dinner at night.

3/23: (Day 5) Church
We went to church together today and have some gathering with bro/sis in the afternoon at Dorcas's house. We went to Korean BBQ for dinner. Yummy Yummy!

3/24: (Day 6) Grand Canyon
We woke up at 6am this morning. We drove 10 hours to Grand Canyon. It's tiring. But Grand Canyon is soooooooooo beautiful. We watched the sunset together in Grand Canyon.
3/25: (Day 7) Grand Canyon+Las Vegas
We visited Grand Canyon again in the morning. We had to drive an hour from the hotel to the national park. Hehe. When we arrived at the park, Sandra found out she left the engagement ring in the hotel. So, we had to go back to the hotel. Thanks God that we got it back from the cleaning lady. We drove back to the park at about 1pm and we stayed there for another 2 hours.
After that, we started driving to Las Vegas at around 3pm. We arrived there at 7pm. We had our dinner at Planet Hollywood Hotel. The buffet was sooooo delicious.
3/26: (Day 8) Hoover Dam
We visited Hoover Dam and Lake Mead today. It's pretty.

Not sure where to post this but I wanted to ask if anyone has heard of National Clicks?

Can someone help me find it?

Overheard some co-workers talking about it all week but didn't have time to ask so I thought I would post it here to see if someone could help me out.

Seems to be getting alot of buzz right now.
