Golden Phoenix Chinese Restaurant

If you ever find yourself traveling through Covington, WA you have to make it a point to stop and eat at Golden Phoenix Chinese Restaurant. Golden Phoenix is my favorite Chinese restaurant because the food is really, really good. When I go, I like to order the luncheon special #12 ($6.50), which is the sweet & sour chicken, pork fried rice, egg roll and your choice of wonton, egg flower or hot & sour soup. The fried chicken is white meat chicken that is pretty juicy and is covered in the usual red sweet & sour sauce. The broth of the wonton soup is very flavorful and the wontons are pork-filled. I also sometimes order the moo goo gai...

Interactive Book: The First Christmas

We were recently approached by publishers Bookmakers, LTD, asking if we’d take a look at their new interactive book. Although most of their books are for a younger audience we jumped at the opportunity to review a digital book. The book, The First Christmas, is an adaptation of the story about the baby Jesus told from the perspective of an animal. The story is written by John Wilkie and it’s nicely written. Most small children will enjoy the story but it’s the interactivity that will really make it interesting for them and the illustrator, Jodie McCallum did a fabulous job on the artwork. We reviewed the iPad version, but they have versions for the iPhone and iPod Touch also....

Cutters Point

*UPDATE* 7/1/15. Cutters Point is no longer in business. Cutters Point is known for making handcrafted coffee. The Cutters Point I’ve been to is in Covington, WA next to the Fred Meyer grocery store. I’ve only been to this location a few times so I haven’t tried everything on the menu. I have tried the hot chocolate and the orange cream smoothie. The hot chocolate is very creamy and is served very hot. You can’t stop drinking it because it’s good. It could use a little more chocolate but any kid would enjoy it. Now, the orange cream smoothie is very rich in flavor, with a thin texture. It’s super creamy if you mix in the whipped cream. This...

TRON: Legacy

TRON: Legacy is the sequel to the movie, TRON, which was made in 1982. After seeing TRON: Legacy, I really want to see the original TRON. Sam’s dad, Kevin Flynn, is the creator of the video game, TRON. When (Kevin) Flynn disappears, Sam is all alone. Many years later, Flynn’s business partner, Alan Bradley, gets a mysterious page from Flynn’s abandoned arcade and tells Sam. Sam then visits the arcade and finds his dad’s secret office. That’s when Sam gets sucked into the videogame world of TRON. There he meets his dad and a girl named, Quorra. At first I didn’t want to see this movie because the previews on TV looked lame but it was actually pretty good....
