cherryNINE: [LIME]mix

Listening to: Hameln (Album) by KIRITO
My webcam:

well, here's a brand new layout X3 it features, once again, KIRITO ♥ this used to be the layout for HUMAN GATE (my graphics journal) but I closed it down since I kinda thought I'd make a graphics archive site thingy anywho, admire the prettiful lime green phenomenon that is this month's layout ^____^b now, to rant about my summer...where to start...

first off, we took the plane from Toronto to Chicago (USA), then transferred to Beijing (which took a wooping 13 hours!!!) where we met my Dad <3 basically, we then drove to some apartment complex where an old couple, who were friends with my Grandpa (maternal side), lived. we stayed there, I got a head massage from a salon downstairs and we watched some Chinese television. needless to say, I skipped all channels except the music stations XD (you can't imagine how many channels showed the same news at the same time) then after that, we left on train for Huhot - the process of getting to the train station was long and agonizing...we were 5 minutes later than we were supposed to be because of the terrorizing traffic jams and had to run into the station while lugging 1454359kg of luggage X____x - when we got to Huhot, my Grandpa and uncle (husband of my Mom's sister) were there to pick us up, along with cousin #151's Dad. we got to my Grandpa's house, reunited with my Aunt (she's my favorite aunt 8D...) and third aunt and uncle, before going to the hospital to check on my Grandma. her condition wasn't worsening from what the doctors say, the brain tumor isn't growing, but she still can't think straight most of the time and acts like a 3 year old...after that, we went home and took a good nap before I met cousin #156 (as mentioned in last post). nothing much to say about him, boring to say the least...then, for the next two weeks, we visited Grandma, and went shopping. then, we left with my Dad to ChongQing.

it had changed a lot since the last time we went there, my Dad rented a new house in the most developed and 'wealthy' section of the district. the house itself was infested with cockroaches, but the gardens and stuff in the apartment yard were nice enough...basically, me and my brother stayed home (my Mom stayed in Huhot to care for Grandma) while my Dad went to work on the weekdays. then, my paternal grandparents came and my brother revived his obsession over Mahjong >____> and apparently Mahjong had to be played with four I was dragged into their games. it was survivable to say the least...after that, my Dad bought me my first acoustic guitar (at a cheap music store, but hey, Chinese stuff is always cheap) and got me some lessons. my teacher was a guy with a cool tattoo, maybe 25 or so, he was nice, and quite patient with me since I was struggling...after that, my Dad had me go to some art class to improve my art was pretty boring some of the time, sitting in front of a canvas all day, but I guess I did improve somewhat. I met a nice teacher there, he took me on one of those subway-like trains that travelled on 'sky-rails' or whatever, it was fun, but we were late for class when we got back 8| all in all it was pretty fun, my Dad took us out to a Dinosaur museum and some other parks and stuff. pretty memorable. after that, my Grandma (paternal) suddenly got a kind of stroke (she fainted), but she was rushed to the hospital and she's fine now. the doctors say she was over-exhausting herself. it's scary, everyone in my family's starting to get Mom came to ChongQing and we took her out to eat at one of the river-side restaurants and took pictures. I loved the view XD

after all that, my Dad took a few days off work and booked us on a cruise. basically, we got cheated. the guy had said the cruise would be top class or whatever, but instead, it was like a wood cabin with a disgusting toilet (well, not disgusting, just not flushable >___>) after we got over that, we toured the Three Gorges. it was a nice sightseeing experience, except it rained 2 of the 3 days we toured and mud was everywhere. after that, there were some cheap on-land tours, the sites were nice, but the tours sucked...anyways, we took pictures, etc. and I stored them on my new laptop (my Dad gave it to me because I said I wanted it and he already bought a new one) X3 we then took the train from the final destination of the cruise to Huhot (my Dad went back to ChongQing to follow up with his work - the president's gotta be there to watch his employees XD - basically what followed were days of cheap shopping where I bought loads of stuff (I call 3 shirts as loads, so sue me) and then we said our goodbyes and we came back home X(

that's been my summer, not exactly the most exciting adventure to exist in history, but satisfactory since I got lots of CDs and clothes XP well, I'm tired now, so I'll go fidget around with my guitar, ja!

[the other dawn] ♥

Listening to: PLOT by Kirito


yosh! Kirito-sama's finally releasing his solo photobook! I'm going to blow my monthly allowance for books/cds, but anything Kirito-related *coughHamelncough* is worth it~ I've heard Hameln so many times how, I can practically sing it X3 I'm in the process of translating all the lyrics right now, into kanji, romanji and English! In fact, I'm taking Japanese lessons because I'm seriously thinking of going to Japan for University ♥ that would be so cool...but then again, my parents are warning me about Japanese racism against the Chinese race...>___> onto brighter things...I've enjoyed most of my stay in China...I got to spend more time with Dad and my Grandparents (on both sides), as well as meet cousins #156, #157, and #158 XS it was awkward, because two of them were almost TWICE as tall as me...SKYSCRAPERS!!! >___< man that was NOT a nice feeling, standing beside someone who's a Yao Ming 'cousin-clone'...

besides that, my darling Nita has moved her blog ♥ I haven't changed the link on the layout yet, but I'll get to that soon, when I conquer the mountain in my room I've dubbed 'homework'...ahem...well, besides that, I've decided to play around with my webcam to display my retardedness show off my new earrings (I only got one on each side because my mom flat out rejected my suggestion of two on each side) them pierced over the summer ^___^ the bad news is, I'm allergic to anything that's not pure silver and/or gold (and I don't like gold) so earrings are gonna be expensive T___T


oh and! I've found out recently that PIERROT's going on a winter nation wide tour (♥!) and I want to go REALLY BADLY...but my Mom says I need to get a travel partner, someone who knows Japanese and a little bit about Japanese concerts...I'm hoping to meet someone in the Japanese classes I'm going to take this year (Saturday school...XS) le sigh...wish me luck ♥
