Arnel Pineda…

It was a busy day at work… and I’m starting to get a little stressed with a web site project that switched from simple to a little more complicated… plus our Studio Manager is still out on jury duty!… I wish they would hurry up with the trial already!

After work, I picked up my friend Darwin and we headed to his place. AJ was at his place and we all headed to the Pacific East Mall to have dinner at Daimo Chinese Restaurant.

As we were looking over the menu. AJ asked me and Darwin is the person sitting at the next table was Arnel Pineda (current lead singer for Journey). We looked over and he really did look like him. The group he was with kept taking photos so we were pretty sure it was him. At one point, Darwin waved and smiled and Arnel did the same… so I glanced over again and smiled and also waved… Me and AJ wanted to take a photo with him, but were to nervous/shy to ask… until both our tables were finished with dinner.

AJ wasn’t getting up to ask, so I got up the nerve and walk over to him and politely asked if he was Arnel Pineda. He was really nice and said yes… then I asked if we can take a photo with him… He agreed and someone at the table called over Darwin and AJ to squeeze together and take a photo.

Our New Friend Arnel Pineda

I asked Arnel what he was doing here and he mentioned that he’s recording an album… I asked it it was for Journey or solo and he said Journey… So we thanked him and his family with big smiles :)

Thanks Arnel :) Here’s Arnel Web Site

After dinner, we went back to Darwin’s and went over some of his contracts that he’s looking over for a new condo he’s buying… He sure did talk for a long time on the phone with his realtor…
