Malibu vs. Santa Monica



Today I joined a gay social group to a beach in Malibu. The beach was stunning. The water is much clearer than Santa Monica's, though the two places are not so far away from each other (like 30-minute drive). I wonder why the water quality is so different. Oh I saw many hot surfers along PCH (Pacific Coast Highway) too. Yum...

After outing at the beach, I went to Malibu Lumber Yard, a new shopping center that opened in April 2009. It's a year old but still looks new. I like three aquarium tanks. I saw a straight Japanese couple shopping. Yes, we Japanese love to check out new things!




I saw several gay people/couples shopping and lounging here too, but shoppers were mostly families - especially with little kids/babies. I guess not many gay people live out in Malibu. Aren't there gay college students at Pepperdine?


Last weekend, I coincidentally discovered a new shopping center in Santa Monica, Santa Monica Place, which just opened a week before. I went to SaMo to attend a free live concert event there. Santa Monica Place is much bigger than Malibu Lumber Yard and has more high-end boutique shops like Louis Vuitton, Tiffany, Michael Kors, Burburry, etc. I was impressed by its grand atmosphere and chic architecture but at the same time was deeply disappointed because most shops are only for female shoppers. I hardly saw clothing stores for men. The rooftop food court looks more interesting, though.

Speaking of shops for guys, I noticed one thing - at the Nike store.


Its mannequin has got a crotch!


Since when has Nike been using gay appeal? Love it, though.

 Born and raised in Japan, I decided to immigrate to the U.S. to pursue a more liberated gay life. I am mostly writing about gay-related news and gossip about male celebrities, LGBT issues in general, and sometimes personal bromance. Most of my posts are in Japanese, but I sometimes introduce Japanese television programs and gay-related cultural stuff in English. Feel free to leave comments in my blog. ;)
