Inspired by the hit TV drama series, I imagine Orange County is a place that comes alive at night.

Every night, the sky is illuminated with millions of stars in different shapes and sizes, sparkling brightly like individual diamonds. The pulsating gleams reflect the atmosphere of the mansion, where no one is stoic and everyone is constantly moving.
Orange County is where it is, where it’s jam-packed with exciting events every night. Whether it’s a birthday or a new year, parties will be held at this mansion, the one mansion that is situated just beside Newport Beach. As the saying goes, beach is where the American dreams come true. Outside the veranda of the master bedroom, where couples will be during these parties, you can see the silver crescent moon shining for you. Along with the sea of stars surrounding them, the waters of Newport Beach mirrors the ever-changing faces you’ll find in the party. This is why the bedroom is perfect for couples: a view so beautiful, as if it came to life from a neat piece by Picasso, and the colorful ornaments of every shade you can think of – perfect. Yes, the ornaments include a magenta bedroom of pillows cloaked in periwinkle blue; walls of wallpapers printed with pictures of ancient Greek gods all in brown, posing as if cameras are all around; a red carpet stretching across the parquet floor, and a murky-green wardrobe that stood aloof in the right corner beside the bed. Where can you find another place so colorful, so absolute, and so complete that it makes our dates so perfect? Fairytale is not an alternative, because Seth Cohen’s mansion is where you should begin with for a long-lasting relationship.
If you try to walk out of the bedroom, don’t worry because it is still a whole world beyond your dreams and imagination. As you tip-toe down each step of the rounded staircase, you are actually drawing closer and closer to the life of the party, where on each step you’ll hear someone yells, though you cannot make out the words, as those words are actually floating about an air of more words, of which, all together, creates a place with full of life. The minute you step on the ground floor, the first thing you’ll notice is not a celebrity, never a chimpanzee, but, as bizarre as it seems, it is the smell of cocktails and champagnes. Alcohols can get richer and more famous than Britney Spears, or Ace Ventura’s company (the faithful chimpanzee), especially in parties held by someone with such a lavish lifestyle. The Cohens is a rich family, as obviously indicated by the size of their mansion and the acres it covered. Not only the Cohens are wealthy, but they have neighbors like the Nichols and the Coopers who owns Orange County. All this make up a rich district, comparable to Bill Gates’ home. Everyone in the neighborhood seems to know one another, and so they gather every night at the Cohens to celebrate as one family.
At the ground floor of flying corks of champagnes and floating glasses of cocktails, you will easily find the world’s most remarkable designer clothing lines worn by people who are adorned with the brightest jewelries. This view has far more colors than the rainbow has, where jades shine under purple shawls and sapphires lit under pink frills of Versace dresses. These people are the hippest, the famous and the first persons people talk about in the neighborhood. At Orange County, daytimes are not as effervescent as twilight, due to the habit of these people flaunting their shining garments hither and thither in the night, making darkness a resemblance of joy and happiness.
Chauffeurs and limousines waited outside the gate and housemaids and gardeners by the poolhouse. They anticipated until the break of dawn, where the house will be littered with spills of alcohols and tissue papers spreading everywhere around the living room so large it can fit elephants. However, the living room is where the life of these parties are located, where the kitchen, the garden, the bedrooms and the poolhouse are combined to create one enlightening atmosphere that is far beyond any description, where the animation is present, and where the heart of Orange County is every night.
