Dine about Town and Up

Thursday I went to Roy’s Hawaiian Fusion Cuisine with Jenny for lunch for Dine About Town.  The appetizer sampler was nice in its variety (Sampler Trio – Crunchy Golden Lobster Potsticker, Teppanyaki Seared Shrimp and a daily Sushi Bite).  I liked my main course, which was “short ribs” (Honey Mustard Garlic-Charred Beef Short Ribs – Garlic Mashed Potatoes, Natural Sauce) though it had no actual rib.  Jenny had fish (Roy’s Classic Roasted Macadamia Nut Crusted Mahi Mahi with Lobster Butter Sauce) which she thought was a bit dry.    The dessert was Hawaiian Passion Fruit Tart which we thought was meh.  She doesn’t like fruit, and I thought the fruits were too sour.

After work, we went to see Up in 3D.  Story itself was kinda touching but predictable in all aspects.  The 3D effect was well-done.  Haven’t actually seen 3D movies since I was a kid at Disneyland and the glasses were still red and blue.  I guess the glasses they have now are basically polarizers.  I wonder what would happen if I used my camera polarizer, would it work, or are the 3D effects tuned for these glasses?  We did notice that without the glasses, everything looked blurry, and fast moving things didn’t look smooth.  The glasses were also a bit uncomfortable, hanging out further out on my nose than my normal glasses, making it feel weird/itchy.
