The Last post of Summer 2012 :'(

Well I did it. I successfully wrote about all 60 days of my summer holiday with only minor hiccups. Along the way I have gained 10 followers, received over 50 likes and collected a total of 282 views with 22 on the busiest. I have made 122 posts and have  914 tags. I’m quite happy how this random idea turned out. I will definitely do this next summer and hopefully continue to blog during the school year.

  • What I did this summer:
  • Went out more
  • Bought tons of new things
  • Played League of legends a ridiculous amount
  • Went to China for 4 days
  • Met a girl
  • Ate myself silly
  • Spent time with my cousins from America
  • Relax and let my brain deteriorate

Before summer started I had all these dreams of what I wanted to do. I was gonna read, create, dance, play games and improve myself. I did that somewhat, and to be realistic how was I suppose to cram so much into one summer? I’m glad how it turned out, and wouldn’t have it any other way :). Thank you to everyone who have read my blog and supported me including my friend Roberto who lives all the way in Germany but is the most supportive of them all. My friend Miguel and Lyka are now regular readers now which I really appreciate (tunks!). And last, but no means least is my friend Marilda. Not only does she read it sometimes she likes to talk to me about it in real life a lot to especially through Twitter Direct Message.

Thanks for reading and I hope you had a good summer!

I’m so embarrassed

Trip to Hing Ling China: Part 4 (Day 52)

My Trip To Hing Ling China: Part 4

Another false start to the morning. I had thought the morning call was a dream twice in a row now. I had breakfast as normal, albeit with a bit more enthusiasm with it being the last day. I’ve been having the same breakfast for 4 days in a row.

The rest at the time at the estate was spent in the chapel with bible study and preaching. My house, house 2 and house 5 were tied for house cup. Our prize was a small pile of lollipops. I.was.overjoyed.

Day 59: The Last Weekend of Summer

Today I went with the family to shop at the newly opened San Mui in my area. It feels really new and fresh but nothing special. Bought tons of snacks and drinks (including a Blue Girl that I’ll share with my dad later). Bring on the zombie apocalypse :D!

Finally finished most of the blog posts for my trip to China. That toke up the majority of my afternoon. Despite it being the last Saturday of summer no one is going out. Hopefully something will happen.

Turns out something did happen. After a few lazy hours at home I finally went out with Liam to get his uniform. On the way we bumped into Lyka and Miguel. Lyka had church, but on the way we had to pass through a famous tourist area known as Old Taipa. Miguel toke the liberty to snap some shots as we pretended to be tourist from Canada to get free samples.

It was kinda of weird being in church with them. Their church felt a lot more professional and holy than mine. There was also some difference in procedure, such as kneeling while you prayed. We also saw lots of our teachers there. Guess there coming back to Macau. We bumped into our teachers called Mr.Mike who had gone to Venezuela to visit his wife’s family. My friend Miguel later pointed out that while talking to her that I refered to one as my teachers as Ms.Camel rather then Ms.Cambel. He and Liam wouldn’t let it go.

Everyone split up and went home afterwards. I walked Miguel home but ended up having subway. I kinda felt like we were going out for the sake of it, it being the last day of summer and all. It’s sadly coming to a close.

Day 58: Goodbye Old Friend

I came home from the date. I was exhausted in body and in wallet. My body started relax and prepare for a night of sleep. My mom was thanked for sponsoring me and I wandered over to my computer. “Dude come over, we are having a sleepover.” I had to look twice to make sure. I love my mom for being so considerate. After all off that stuff back to back she left me go. I was at home for about 2 minutes.

In Macau, normal buses stop at midnight which are then replaced by Night buses. The problem was, I didn’t know how to use the night buses. I had to sprint a hill to get to the bus stop in time. Thankfully I made it for the last round of buses. I arrived at Joel’s house sweaty and out of breath.

My First Real Date

I was so nervous. I sat there in the lobby wondering what would happen. I fidgeted every time the lift door opened, half hoping it was her and half hoping she would just ditch me. In a short few hours I had arranged my first “proper date.” My rational behind it was summer was almost over, so I might as well do something memorable. I’m glad I toke that risk 🙂

The Rest of Day 57

I then spent a few good hours in the afternoon trying to edit videos from the trip. I swear that sony vegas is the bane of my existant. It loves crashing, or lets me comepletly finish editing but then refuses to render it. A hair-ripping experiance. I also had to sift through hundreds of photos and start on the China Trip Blogs.

Day 57: Prepartions for school

Today’s plan was to buy the school uniform and some stationary for school. I got a good nights rest again, waking up at 11 and getting a good 10 hours of sleep. I spent the majority of the morning playing Bejeweled 3. Joel was supposed to come over early, but he only ended up getting to my place at around 1. Despite having 15 hours of sleep, he was still tired.

First stop was the uniform place. I picked up the school shorts and a new trousers while Joel got 2 School Shirts and 2 shorts. Pretty boring stuff. We then stopped by a small snack shop “A DAN.” They have the most amazing curry there. We used to go there all the time when our school had a renovation, which forced us to spend half a school year in our sister school’s spare floors.

Joel then went off to dance practice. It would have been a bit of a waste time if I left so I decided to do something productive. I went to Daiso (the asian equivalent of the one dollar store) and “Zhi Fu: the most well-known stationery store in Macau. At Daiso I picked up a spray bottle for my plant, a towel for exercise, a case for my camera and a magnetic pen holder for my locker. At Zhi Fu I picked up a ocordian folder and two notebooks. Last year I had an ocordian folder and there just so damn useful!

Think I’m prepared for school? Wrong.  I haven’t even bought my school books yet. We have a tendency to not use half of them so I’m going to play it by ear.

Tomorrow is going to be the last Friday of Summer. My good friends Martharoot and Morgan are both leaving to other countries to study. My friends and I are going to see them off at the ferry. It’s really sad to see them go, more and more of my friends are going abroad to finish their studies. Wonder how many of us will stick around the whole way. At this point its pretty hard to jump of the boat.

My birthday (September 13th) is a pain to celebrate most of the time. This is because it is right when school starts, when parents are the most strict. I had this idea of staying the night at a hotel with a couple of friends (either Grand Lapa or The Westin). The problem is, we can only use the membership for low traffic days such as Sunday. Pity.
