back from the bahamas!

i've got to say, when we first go there (traveling in a small plane), i really expected that our vacation was gonna be totally lame since mommy told us that the hotel would have wi-fi only for us to find out that they didnt have it, and that to use the internet, you had to PAY. so yeah, we were pissed off and mad at mommy. the only good thing so far at the moment was that we got a room to ourselves and away from the parentals. and brian who has been so annoying. that little pig...

i dont feel like giving you a play-by-play of what we did there so i'll just give you the major details. on tuesday, we went downtown to get souvenirs for all of our friends (including the parentals, they had to buy so many things) and me and shelle got these wishing bracelets. they're pretty simple to make and they each have different colors with different meanings. black is for fortune and/or fame (both me and shelle got it), purple for energy (me), rainbow for harmony (both), gold for money (i got one for haley :P and shelle got one for herself), and green for hope (shelle). and we got these little things called worry people. i got one for haley, too since she has so much to handle.

on wednesday, we (me and shelle, brian was too scared to go with daddy) went para sailing (cost $60 per person) in the morning and around an hour later, my parents agreed to let the whole family go snorkeling (cost $35 per person). which was WAY more awesomer than para sailing!!! it was so fun! and it made me really want to learn how to swim cuz it was so cool. and cuz of that, i got sunburn on my shoulders and now my shoulders are super dark! i've never been so dark before!! i'll never understand why white people like to get tans. and how come asian's tans never go away unlike the white people.

and on thursday, we stayed outside at the beach for 4 hours straight! during the last hour and a half (at least) me and shelle spent trying to learn how to swim. we were a little successful. and now i can hold my nose under water without using my hand! i'm so happy about that! XD

we took alot of pictures while we were there. over 900. O_o

and yesterday, we got back home. the bahama's airport was so long! and it was also haley's birthday, too. i need to call her to wish her a belated birthday and to see when she's free. i'm trying to get everyone together on either monday or tuesday of next week so that i can give them their souvenirs/birthday presents.

i'll talk to you later!

same title as the last post :P

so hey, it's been a while hasnt it? and can you believe that summer's STILL not over yet? not that i'm really complaining cuz really, who wants to go to a new skool and start over again? but i'm just so tired of goin to so many places and coming back. and i dont really like stayin at home that much cuz mommy keeps the temperature really cold altho it's super hot outside, and cuz everyone can see what i'm doin when i'm on the computer. and you know me, i dont like everyone seeing my business that much.

but yeah, we came back from grandma's house a couple of days ago. it was really fun there altho tiring as usual. megan has gotten less shy about taking pictures altho at alot of times, she still doesnt want us to take pics of her, and nicole (i like calling her nickel XD) is still SUPER shy. it takes forever to convince her to show herself and stuff. she's so stubborn. but so are we. :P

we went to a rich people mall twice while we were there. it had all of the big expensive stores that are in gossip girl and expensive stores in general (hence the name "the rich people mall"). you know bloomingdales, anthropologie, nordstrom, and a whole bunch that i cant remember. they didnt have any of the stores that i liked. :(

but we had fun. and we went to the korean market to look at the "puppies", too. XP "puppies" is our codeword for cute guys since we didnt want anyone to know what we were really talkin about. the korean market never disappoints me with it's supplies of puppies XD

and we got to talk to di hieu on yahoo. we got on shelle's laptop and got to see each other on their webcams altho we couldnt talk to each other, it was good enough. and grandma got to see her, too. and she sent us alot of pics of the places she's been to. it was really cool. and she said that we could have a job like hers, too. when we're older and stuff. i kinda forgot what her job was, tho.

oh! and on the last saturday that we were there, tommy and andy brought their guitar heroes and i finally got to play. it was AWESOME!! and totally addicting! even nicole liked it! i cant wait to get rock band. i'm really hoping that mommy will throw me and brian a birthday party since she wants everyone to see our new house. i asked her and daddy about it and they said that after we move, they'll think about it. i hope they do it cuz i want nicole and megan to come over. they wanted to come over during thanksgiving holidays so that they could stay the night.

and tomorrow, we're leaving for the bahamas. the last place we're goin to this summer. hopefully. we have to get up at 4 in the morning, tho. or was it get up at 3 and leave at 4? well, either way, we have to get up early just to go to ATL and stuff. i'm not planning on sleeping at all tonight since it's kind of pointless. everyday that we've been here, i've been sleeping around from 1 to 4 in the morning. so i'm just gonna sleep in the car on the way there, and on the plane, too.

so long for now!

the busiest summer ever!

and i'm not lying either. a couple of weeks ago, we (me and shelle) went to california for 2 weeks. a day or two after we got home, we went to florida which was 2 days ago. tomorrow afternoon, we're goin to our grandma's house. we have a choice of stayin there for one or two weeks. we kinda decided to stay for only one week cuz shelle needs to get her driver's license and i want to have my friends over one day to give them their souvenirs i got them in cali. not to mention, we havent gotten a break to just stay home and be lazy ever since this summer started. i mean, before we even went to cali, we had to pack. my room's practically empty! and mommy said that this friday, the ppl are coming so my room has to be completely empty of my stuff. and i'm not done with tellin you about where we're goin for the rest of the summer. on july 21st, we're goin to the bahamas and stayin until the 25th. not to mention, we still need to go to the skool to enroll me and brian. and mommy and daddy were talkin about goin somewhere on the weekend alone together before we moved, too. yeah, i think that's all of that. but who really knows; my parents are prone to change their minds ALOT.

so cali was fun. we ate out at alot of places that arent in GA. we went to the mall alot cuz lil worked there, and we kept on buying clothes (mainly shirts and tanks). we watched alot of movies so we're kinda caught up. we went to the japanese friendship garden and took some pics there. it's really pretty and the koi fish were pretty big. and i got my hair cut. it's pretty short. it was a pretty big shocker when lil just chopped it off in the beginning, but i'm gettin used to it.

the big fishes :)

the pretty scenery...

my haircut...

but yeah, hopefully, our cuzins will come over next year for michelle's graduation and to see the new house. oh yeah, i dont think i ever told you why we went over to cali in the first place. it was to go to viv's graduation. we got tan just sittin in the front row roasting our butts off :P

and we went to florida last saturday. we stayed at hong lien's house cuz vi and leanne were in florida. it was tiring as always since the 3 little girls wanted you to play with them 24/7. but we went to the mall (altho it rained on and off twice, i think, maybe more) and i got a bathing suit for the bahamas and some more shirts.

and sometime we were in cali, mommy finally bought the wii. wii sports is so addicting! especially boxing! man, you can never get tired of the game. you can only get tired from playin so much. and mommy and daddy said that they'd get our (me and shelle) games later which i'm startin to believe will be when we move. shelle's gonna get DDR and i'm gonna get rock band. i cant wait! XD

well, i'll talk to you later
