Alice’s Sleepover 2017

July 28-29th

We went to Alice’s house at 6 pm, and the first thing she did was hug us to death. She was going to Broadview, so it was the most likely last time I would see her. She gave us a tour of the house, and she had an outdoor salted pool, an outdoors fire pit, and a secret room where you pull a book then push the bookshelf to a room that her step-father uses as his office. He was a lot of computers and he even has a 3D printer!

We were the last ones to arrived except for Grace, who had to come late because of some reason. Alice had invited Deniz, Adalia, Grace, and me and Rose. Then we went to the nearby park to wait for Grace to come, because we didn’t know when she would arrive. We played on the swings until the pizza came, so we ate the pizza and then play in the living room. We played on her keyboard, and played chess while spamming texts to Grace asking her why she wasn’t there. She eventually arrived at 7:30 telling us that her parents literally TOOK HER OUT TO DINNER after waiting for her father to come home. So then we went to changed into our swimsuits and went to play in her pool. Her pool was FREEZING COLD! It wasn’t heating, but everyone just jumped in. After I was cold, so I went out after Rose and Adalia had.

Then we changed into our pajamas and went outside to roast marshmallows. I made three good ones and purposely burnt my last one because it looked like a torch if you put it on fire. Then we ate cake at 9:30. NINE THIRTY!? Ya. She also opened the presents. We gave her 24 kinder eggs. Her step-father also gave us a Ouijas board to play with in the basement, where we were sleeping. We got bored because it wouldn’t move. So we started talking all the way till 11:30, then planned to steal the candy from upstairs that Grace and Adalia had given to her for her birthday. We stole the candy at 1 in the morning, and started watching movies and tv shows on netflix. She had a tv in her basement! Two actually! One for the x-box and the other for the wii. We played on the wii in the morning, but now we watched Nicky, Ricky, Dicky and Dawn, and also Sanjay and Craig. At 4 in the morning, we watched the first movie of the Hunger Games, and then we went to sleep while Grace and Deniz stayed up. After one hour of sleep, Deniz and Grace started trying to make us wake up saying that “one hour of sleep is enough!!” and mixing water and shampoo together to put on other people’s legs. But we ignored them telling each other that they will fall asleep, and we will annoy them then. 🙂

I had three hours of sleep when I gave up on trying to fall asleep, and I watched some tv while other people slept. That’s when I noticed at 8 in the morning, Deniz finally fell asleep. I took a picture on her cellphone so she wouldn’t forget. She even said she would stay up and pull an all nighter, and that we had to wake up at 9 so we could do something all together. You know what she did? She skipped breakfast and just slept until she had to go, and even when her dad came down, she was still sleeping.

For breakfast we had pancakes with syrup, and then went back to the basement to play on the wii. We played Super Mario Smash Bros Brawl and Super Mario Kart. I like using Kirby and Peach. 🙂

Then we went home.

Toronto Trip Going Home

July 24, 2017

Today, we ate muffins for breakfast and then packed our suitcases because we were leaving. First we went shopping at supermarkets, where we bought mangosteen, dragon fruit, and other stuff, but those two are worth pointing out 😛 .  and then we went to meet my uncle’s friend. We went to this Banquet Hall to eat our lunch, but I didn’t like their food there because it tasted too fancy and icky. Then we continued our shopping at Costco and other supermarkets. Then we started going home.

Toronto Summer Trip 2017

July 22, 2017

We left for Toronto at 8:15 in the morning. It took about 1 hour to get to the 1000 islands for a boat tour around the islands. There are actually 1800 islands, but it depends on the qualifications of different people because some might say if it is separated from any other land, it is an island. Others might say an island must have atleast two trees. Some might say it needs one tree. So they just called it 1000 islands just to be safe. On the tour, we passed Boltd castle. A man named George C. Boltd was a millionaire, and he decided to use his money to build a six story house with over 100 rooms for his wife, Louise. But during the construction, Louise suddenly died, and he left the place due to the sadness of his loss. More about the history here.

Then we went for lunch at the EnRoute station. The place was very crowded, but we were very lucky to have found a parking spot. We bought KFC food because the other lines were very very full.

When we got to Toronto, we first went to my dad’s old classmate’s friend’s house to eat our dinner. We had chinese food bought from some chinese people operated store, and some mango and iced tea to drink. Then we went to Cherry and Rose’s house, which is my dad’s old classmate’s daughters. My sister and I were named after them. They had adopted a dog, and the dog kept licking and smelling us, but it was a very smart dog. It would listen to instructions well, like if Cherry’s mother put a treat in front of the dog, and said: “Wait”, the dog wouldn’t eat it until she said “Go”. The dog would also bark to warn them that he has to “go”, and then they would let him out to do his business.

We finally went to my mother’s friend’s house, which was where we were staying at.

New Brunswick Trip || Day 2

July 17, 2017

Today, my father brought us to Hopewell rocks, which was where the Bay of Fundy was. The Bay of Fundy has the highest tide in the whole world. It was $25.50 for a family (two adults and two children) and with a student (my cousin) for $5.50, an adult (my uncle) for $8.50 and a senior (my grandmother)for $7.50  We went there when it was low tide, so we were allowed to walk on the sand. Then we left to see the Confederation Bridge. It took about 1 hour to get there, but it was worth the view. It was a long beautiful blue bridge, from where we were. After taking pictures, we went back to Hopewell rocks, and arrived there at about 7:00 pm. At that time, is was at high tide, and we couldn’t even see the sand where we were standing! It was super cool. Then we drove a 2 hour drive back to our hotel.

New Brunswick Vacation 2017

July 16, 2017

Today, in the morning, we took the car to New Brunswick’s St-John. When we got to St-John, went to Hartland’s longest covered bridge in the whole world. We did have to walk the whole way, but it was worth the view. The bridge was only a one lane bridge because it is 100 years old, and in that time, there were only horse-driven carriages, which were less wider. Then we headed to Reversing Falls during its high tide. It was very cool. After, we went to where we were staying for three days, Best Value Inn.

Quebec City Trip 2017

July 15, 2017

Because my uncle and my cousin came to Canada, my father decided to bring my grandmother, my uncle, my cousin, my sister, my mother, and me to Quebec City and New Brunswick.

We went to Quebec City’s city to check out their city. We saw artists selling their masterpieces, we saw restaurants, and also went by the Quebec City festival.

The best thing we did was go to Montmorency falls. It costed 12.05 to park a mini-van, but everything else was free, except for the concession stand. We didn’t go above the falls, but below. There were a bunch of mini falls too, and we took pictures of them. A lot of other people also built some inukshuks. I had crocs on so I went feet-in into the cool water.

At the end, we bought a small blue raspberry slushie to let my cousin, HongMing, taste.

Ottawa Rhythmic Gymnastics Club 2017 Summer Gymnestraeda

June 25, 2017

Today at gymnastics, we had a performance at out club. I had four routines to perform. The first one was called Enchanted Forest, which was made by my Friday coach, Iana. The second one was a duo, with my sister Rose. The last performance before the 15 minute intermission was a dance choreographed by Keiko, my Sunday coach. It consists of three apparatuses. Ball, which I chose to do, ribbon, and clubs. I did ball with Jaqueline, who used to be a provincial, Eva, Helen, little Alison (we have two Alisons in our club, and both of them are little) and Claire. It was called Columbus’s Egg (XD), and it is one of my favourite routines.

During the intermission, I bought myself a cupcake. It had strawberry icing on top even though it was white. I found it very sweet and tasty. But this year, our club didn’t have the silent auction. Last year I liked the emoji keychains that they auction off.

My last routine, which was performed second last, was called Circle of Life. It is my other favourite routine. Of course, it’s the song from Lion King. The routine was originally Mikayla’s, but people liked it so much, the provincial coach, Olga, decided to make it into a group routine for all the Competitive Groups. They really liked the dance line that was in the routine. It was funky but cool. Whenever Mikayla performs it, everyone does the dance line with her. We wore these Hawaiian skirts, with a lei that circled around our bun.

After the show, every gymnast went on the carpet and we took a group photo. During that time, they handed out roses, and presented Sing, our head coach, and Keiko a photo of the club and the frame had notes and signatures that gymnasts made. But what was funny was that after the show, Keiko’s broke so they had to make another one.

Then we went home. 🙂
