My worry for my fellow film lovers is that subtitles combined with a fear of anything that smacks of fiction or intellectualism might keep some from making the trek from Glendale to the Laemmle in Pasadena. That would be too bad, for "Balzac and the Little Chinese Seamstress" is a rare combination of a lavish motion picture simply told. Even rarer is that it is written and directed by Dai Sijie, the same talented storyteller who wrote the original novel.

The citizens of Laguna Beach deserve congratulations for the recent decision by the Fish and Game Commission to designate our ocean as a Marine Life Protected Area. Without the overwhelming support from Laguna's residents and leadership from a band of citizen volunteers too numerous to list, this designation would not have been possible. Councilwomen Toni Iseman, Verna Rollinger, Jane Egly and Elizabeth Pearson also deserve our thanks and congratulations for this victory! We all appreciate their leadership on an issue so important to our village.

Yahoo! Wahoo's is back! After almost a year of remodeling, this Mexiyaki taco emporium is back in business with parking in the rear and expanded seating, including an additional outdoor terrace. If you're sitting in the right place and crick your head to the left, you might even have an ocean view. This is not your typical Mexican eatery. The food is a mix of Asian, Brazilian and Mexican with a surfer vibe. The walls are festooned with surfboards and posters, and the atmosphere is real chill.

Rohrer Fine Art is known for bringing some of the most famous art in the world to Laguna Beach. Now the gallery is helping bring the most talked-about exhibition in decades to Orange County: ?Terra Cotta Warriors: Guardians of China?s First Emperor,? now on view at the Bowers Museum. ?This is a show not to be missed,? gallery co-owner Charlie Rohrer said. The Santa Barbara Museum of Art exhibited some of these famous statues in 1998; a similar show in England became an overnight sensation, selling out almost immediately.

The five principles hang in a picture frame on the wall, giving visitors an inkling of what they might expect when they enter the dojo. “Effort, etiquette, sincerity, self-control, character.” These are words that mean a lot to Sensei Jeff Kash, the instructor at the United Studios of Self Defense in Laguna Beach. He tries to convey these things to the young — and the young-at-heart — who enter the doors of the small studio, tucked into a corner of the Albertsons parking lot on South Coast Highway.

As the Asian population of Orange County has grown, so has the number of its ethnic restaurants. If you are willing to venture outside of Laguna, you will find an astonishing variety of styles and tastes from Vietnam, Japan, Korea, Cambodia, Laos, Thailand and, of course, from all regions of China. Exploring and tasting is one of the great food adventures offered by life in the O.C.   However, there are times when you just want to eat good old-fashioned Chinese food close to home; you know, the kind we grew up with, the type they serve at China Bistro #1. It is so familiar to us you could almost call it comfort food.
