New Dog, Old Photos
Reese and his Teddy
Cute, isn't he?
Yes, we have a new dog: a small Shih Tzu puppy about two months old now. I don't care much for dogs but this guy's so lovable. It's funny waking up early to feed him, bringing him around, and just playing with him.
I've also got those pictures I mentioned on the last post. Some of the best photos, anyway.

We headed to Madame Tussaud's Wax Museum, and that was just one of the photos we ended up with. It was fun to check all the famous figures immortalized in these figures.
Beauty & The Beast on Broadway
We went to see Beauty & The Beast on Broadway --- a five-year-long dream for my sister and me. It seemed pretty impossible while living halfway across the globe, but when Daphy heard the show was taking its last bow this July... well, we just had to see it. It was really good, and so was the singing. It wasn't as large-scale as the Phantom of the Opera, but still pretty enjoyable.

Cye and me
One of the reasons Daphy and I went to the States was to visit our old friends: Cyrielle and Keziah. Cye was my classmate, and Keziah, her sister, was Daphy's. We hung with them in Chicago for two days and it was a blast. We talked (and talked and talked and talked...), and we just did stuff together.
I guess that's it. I'd love to put more pictures but some of them are too big to put up. Oh well.
Anyway, I'm working on some advertising posters now. Yes, work. It'll make me pretty busy. I'll try to post and tag in good time, but we'll see.
So bye, everyone!

Here I am back in ultra-tropical weather with some jetlag and lots of memories.
I really feel I didn't blog well enough about this trip. There were just too many pictures and too many experiences. Don't get me wrong; I remember them all. Sometimes my brain goes about five times faster than my fingers can type though. Not to mention my blogging tendencies have been sabotaged by my need to sleep earlier due to jetlag.
And there are always the times I'm too lazy to blog, of course.
LOL, someone commented that I sounded like a Disney commercial in the last post. The truth is I am a Disney commercial. My whole childhood and a large part of my teenage years were spent watching Disney movies and singing Disney tunes. I even started cooking with Minnie Mouse cookbooks.
So. Some pictures to sweeten the mood.
The Six & Lady Liberty
We really enjoyed visiting the Statue of Liberty. Unfortunately, KD hadn't thought to bring his jacket and got pretty cold on the ferry going there. He ended up putting an arm in my jacket, the other arm in Daphne's, and his head in Jonathan's. Silly, I know. But here's a photo of Jonathan and KD sharing a jacket.
We did a bunch of other stuff: went to Madame Tussaud's wax museum, ate more delicious food, and some other things. I'm not really up to transferring the pictures into my computer though; think I'll just put them up on my next post.
Maybe I'm just tired from getting back from the dressmaker's. My Mom, Daphy, and me had to have some long dresses fitted for a wedding we're attending. It's kind-of weird to have people sticking pins in your clothes while you watch them. The dresses were nice though.
So goodbye! Sorry for the short post; it's the jetlag, I guess. I'll have a better post next time.
***By the way, to yknot: You commented a few times asking for help but I can't seem to find a way to reply so hoping you read this in the near future. Sure, I'll help out though not promising I can really solve the problem. First I've heard of this happening myself, but I'll check it out. Just give me your e-mail please or the template in some way and we'll talk about it. Take care!

OK, not really ashamed. A little, maybe.
I've enjoyed the trip so much that I'm so behind on my blogging. So many other things have happened since the trip to Orlando, and I don't think my fingers, computer, and my brain can catch up long enough to type them out. When I do get to use the computer (not often though), I always just want to relax and read other people's words instead of making my own.
Anyway, I just came back from Chicago for a visit with friends. It was loads of fun. We went to the mall, downtown, and even the public library. We watched a movie, ate good food, and spent time just catching up.
More on this later though in picture form since I don't have any good ones yet. Cyrielle (my friend) will still send her photos to me.
Anyway, I'd better pass over the Orlando trip just to get it off my back.
Disney World, anyone?
Well that's what one generally thinks of if one bothers to come to Florida. Not that there aren't any great theme parks not by Disney. There were, but I guess Disney is a nice place to start.
Basically, we went to four of Disney's theme parks and enjoyed ourselves immensely. We screamed ourselves hoarse on roller coasters and water rides. I especially enjoyed the water rides, by the way. They were quite steep and so fun; I usually sat in the front and got soaked.
I'd shiver with cold for the rest of the day but it was worth it.
The shows were also, well, fantasmic. In fact, that's the name of one of the shows we saw in Disney World. It was full of lights, fireworks, and illusions at night.
What I loved best about Disney World was the magic though. It was like looking at a dream world and being part of it. We sang along to all the Disney songs (my cousin thinks I'm a freak, by the way, because I can memorize most of them), laughed a lot, and basically felt like children again.
It's Ariel and Eric!

I don't know; I guess I don't feel like talking more about it since I'm getting sleepy. But it's pretty hard to describe.
Cinderella's fairytale castle
I bet heaven would be much nicer though. :)
I took lots of good pictures of animals in Sea World.

Forgive how lacking I am in my blogging right now. The pictures speak for themselves this time around.
The funny thing was when we got back to New Jersey though. Apparently, my aunt had forgotten to bring her house keys. Yes, I repeat, the house keys.
So we were reduced to acting like thieves in front of our own house by mauling the doorknob with an axe.
When that didn't work, we borrowed all manner of tools from the neighbors. In short, it took us a while to get into the house.
I guess that's it for now. I want to go back to laughing with my cousins. We did a lot more stuff but will blog soon. Bye!

An imageless post
Just to let everyone know I'm alive and all that.
I haven't been sneaking about in the hallways of internet lately because I've been enjoying myself in Florida. In theme parks, to be exact. I've screamed myself hoarse on more than twenty rides of varying thrills and chills. I've also shopped until I almost dropped, and eaten more food than was good for me.
But you will not see it in this post, dear reader. Not until I get my laptop to connect on the internet again. Yeah, it's like the last time: I moved house once more.
So you will have to enjoy imageless posts until I get my computer to do what it's supposed to do.
Speaking of Orlando, theme parks, and my great humongous non-existent crush on Mickey Mouse will have to wait until the pictures come.
So I'll just pass over today quickly. We went shopping!
I'm really such a girl to enjoy this pastime as much as I do. And I did though I won't bore too many people with particulars. Suffice to say I've walked practically miles the past few days and had fun doing it.
I'm also looking forward to watching Spiderman 3 soon! I know it's been out over here since yesterday, but I don't want to be caught in the crowd catching its premiere. I will see it sometime this week though.
I'm also waiting for Shrek 3 and Pirates of the Caribbean 3. Is it the year of sequels or what, ladies and gentlemen?
I guess that's it. This doesn't seem as fun without the pictures. Sigh.
Oh well. Until next time!
