Who said Newport Beach is South OC? It isn't, it's Coastal OC. As a 3rd generation Orange Countian (my grand kids are 5th generation) I consider "South County" those "new" cities, NOT Laguna Beach, South Laguna, SJC, Capo Beach and SC. Those too are "Coastal OC".

I consider everything that surrounds Laguna Beach as a corporate poseur burb that uses the 'Laguna' name and attaches 'hills' 'niguel' or 'woods' to affect desirability. South Laguna was once low end Laguna where the cheap apartments were. SJC has the most history and charm and is first to Laguna Beach in age. Lake Forest was once El Toro and was where many middle class people from Laguna Beach would do their shopping at K-Mart and what was then El Toro mall. The El Toro marine base was there as well.

Imagine how the residents of Lake Forest feel. Their City is named after a freeway offramp. Now, THAT's embarrassing...

The Off Ramp was named after the area and the road leading into the area. The was a development built partly on two lakes and partly in a forest of old Eucalyptus trees planted for use as lumber and railway ties for the Santa Fe Railroad.

He's asking if Irvine is very asian. How do you not understand that? Yes it is. I like asian girls preferably 21-23 years old.

Yes, the City of Irvine is 41% Asian and I think UCI is 60% Asian. You find a lot of Chinese restaurants with branches in both Irvine and the SGV.

This x1000. I speed through the seemingly ever repeating treadmill of chain stores, restaurants, squat glass office towers and tightly packed tile-roofed houses for an hour or so and breathe a sigh of relief and experience a snap back to consciousness when I finally get through it in my way to fun LA or back down to beautiful San Diego.
