Jake & Jasper: A Ferret Tale
Hello guys! I know, I haven’t post anything in a long time but I have some pretty cool news. Remember “Young Lex” in Smallville? Well I got the opportunity to work with him. His name is Connor Stanhope. He is a very talented young boy whom I know he’ll be a big Hollywood star in the near future!
The project that I got the chance to be part of is directed by Alison Parker ( her IMDb page). She is a brilliant director who decided on filming a movie about a young boy who is struggling with the death of his mother, and finds solace with a ferret named Jasper. By filming this movie she is reaching out to all of us who loves nature and ferrets. You can check out more about this movie at the Jake & Jasper’s Facebook Fan Page.

Smallville Liquidation Sale
I am so sad knowing that Smallville will be off the air in a couple of weeks. I cannot believe that I wont be able to watch this TV show that made me grow up and teaching so many good thing about life, friendship, and family.
I got the chance to go to the Smallville Liquidation Sale. They were selling out the props that they used during the 10 years that Smallville continue sharing memories, tiers, and laughter. It started this Thursday April 28 at 10 AM. I got there around 11AM. The thing that I noticed the most was that there were a lot of people in their Superman T-shirts. I believe that I’m not the only one that will cry during the grand finale of Smallville.
I couldn’t take my DSLR inside but I got another small point and shoot camera with me, I didn’t took that many pictures but I hope you guys like them. The sale is still going to be until Saturday April 30th. Here’s the info if you would like to attend: Smallville Sale!
Here are the pictures. I’ll be posting more pictures soon since I’m going to the sale again later..
Comment below and tell me, what are your favorites moments of Smallville?

Yeap!, you heard right.. it’s The Talon!. Remember that coffee shop/movie theater where Lana Lang (Kristin Kreuk) used to work in?. Well that place actually exist. It’s in a town named “Cloverdale”, it is still a movie theater, so everybody that wants to check out the place themselves and watch a movie are more than welcome.
Only two bad news, the inside of the “Talon” was based in another place, meaning, it’s not the same building for outside or inside. We did some research and found out that the inside was in a town named “White Rock”.
The 2nd bad news, we got a surprise when we got there. We asked the ladies working there if we could go inside of the theater just see the inside, but then she told us (my husband and me) that the actual interior that the people from CW used to filmed the talon wasn’t there anymore, the owners of the place build another theater on top of it because the original one was too old and in bad conditions (bummer!).
But at least we got the outside of the Talon, so not everything is lost!.
The exterior of The Talon is located at 57th and 176th Street in Cloverdale, BC.
The interior (behind the coffee shop, the old theater) was filmed at White Rock Playhouse, which is located at 1532 Johnstone, White Rock, BC.
Here are some pictures of The Talon..

THE KENT’S FARM
Well, I should mention that I’m a big fan of Smallville. Not only do I like the original story of Superman, but I think that the TV show does a really good job at showing the superman that we have became to love when he was young. I know that most of you have grown up knowing of that great man who came from another planet named Krypton to save the world. In the last weekend of my vacation, my husband Gavin (thank you, I love you so much!) gave me a big surprise by bringing me to the most important location used in the TV show, “The Kent Farm”. I was so surprised, so happy to see the real farm that they still use to film Smallville. It is an actual farm, and there is a family living there currently.
While I was walking around the outside of the farm, a few things got my attention. One such thing was the sign, the “Kent Farm” sign and it’s still there! I think they knew that a lot of people were going to start wandering around trying to find the farm, so why not let the audience know that at one point, this farm was the famous home of Clark Kent (of the TV show).
The second detail that got my attention was the old wind mill. On the back side it says… “Aermotor USA”. If you actually pay attention in the episodes where they show the farm you can clearly see that those words are on the wind mill. It was a prop that they created to complete the farm.
The third detail was the colour of the house. In most of the episodes, the house was painted yellow. And guess what? It is painted in yellow in real life.
Well there are a lot of things that I noticed, but it is impossible to mention all of them.
Here are some pictures of the farm.
BTW, the address is:
839 248th Street, Aldergrove, BC.
And it is right in the corner with 8th Ave.
PS: The girl in the picture… that’s me.
