Remember when nobody knew what cilantro was? That's the way it is today for chin baung and kin poon , Burmese greens that are usually available only in the yards of a few home growers. It's still possible to taste them, though. The Golden Triangle, a Burmese and Thai restaurant in Whittier, adds chin baung and kin poon to soups and stir-fries.

Golden Triangle Restaurant is in the genteel center of Uptown Whittier, cheek-by-jowl with the art galleries and the collectors' bookstores, five minutes from City Hall and a short walk from the Whittier College quad. Here's the kind of relaxed street life you're not supposed to find within a couple thousand miles of this place, leafy and pleasant if a little too cute, a college town without a Benneton or a chain restaurant in sight.

Calling it "a sexy way to move people around," San Diego City Councilwoman Abbe Wolfsheimer told community leaders in La Jolla on Wednesday that a trolley line through the Golden Triangle and University City is "absolutely mandatory" despite mounting opposition. But Wolfsheimer surprised, and pleased, some of the trolley's more vocal opponents by saying--for the first time--that she opposes a proposed route running up Regents Road that has galvanized community opposition.

San Diego is a city of many hills. Of the dozens that create our unique terrain, we are now officially involved in a legal controversy involving two that reference the city's religious heritage. Clearly, crosses on Mt. Soledad and Mt. Helix do not represent the faiths of all of our community's residents. In the interest of fair play, I invite adherents of the secular faiths to look up. It is likely they will find their icons prominently displayed in the monuments that adorn San Diego's other promontories: Devout humanists such as the case's chief plaintiff, for example, may find solace and meaning as they gaze upon the temples of UC San Diego, while hedonists can rejoice at the sight of the pinnacle of party schools, San Diego State University.

Talk about architectural diversity. The Golden Triangle--the dense, bustling area that developed rapidly during the 1980s--already has a suburban housing tract, acres of condos, two shopping malls, several of San Diego's ugliest office towers and The Aventine, a wild postmodern hotel-office complex designed by controversial architect Michael Graves.

The thousands of mules of drug warlord Khun Sa are being rested and fattened in the rich pastureland beyond the mountains of Pangsue in eastern Myanmar. They are gaining strength to carry a bumper opium harvest in the new year to clandestine laboratories that will convert it into heroin to satisfy the cravings of drug addicts the world over.

MAE HONG SON, Thailand--Despite its location in the remote northwestern corner of Thailand, there is a sheen of new money about Mae Hong Son, with five-star hotels rising incongruously in rice paddies, new banks opening monthly and land prices soaring so fast that farmers have been driven into the surrounding hills.

On a recent morning, a hiker braved the dense urban jungle known as the Golden Triangle, the 8,682-acre area surrounding University Towne Center shopping mall. The exploration concentrated along La Jolla Village Drive between Interstates 5 and 805, where the most intense development has occurred in recent years. City planners call this "North University City."

The heroin business has rarely been better for Chang Chi-Fu, alias Khun Sa, who seems more concerned about the rival Wa tribe than a U.S. government indictment. The United States has branded Chang the "Prince of Death" and the billion-dollar drug kingpin of the Golden Triangle. It has charged him with importing or trying to import more than 3,500 pounds of heroin into New York between September, 1986, and February, 1988, and has threatened to "go after him if he can be located."
