saturday and sunday

saturday ended up to be great. first, did errands with my dad since he wanted to see me drive. got home and he was like, "i'm done driving for the day," cause i asked him about taking me and bri. well bri and i definitely did not want to sit at home that night so we figured that bowling could work. Got people together and went. It was fun, all the dancing, dorkiness... good times.

Sunday: Happy Easter!
Went to church when i woke up, came home and Patrick (cousin that lives in SF) and his girlfriend Kelly were here. They ate breakfast with us and we talked about Asia. They invited me to come spend time with them when they move to Singapore this summer. I'm definitely going there, after high school graduation, Asia, here i come. Kelly, she's from Singapore, is really nice and I hope she becomes a member of our family. She said to any of you IB people interested in going to UC Berkely, that she thinks you should re-consider because their funding is going down and it's becoming not that great of a school. So after breakfast, they left and we left to go to Melbourne to my Grandma's house. I love going there, but today I just felt like the black sheep. My cousin, Megan, is mad at me still from last weekend and she gave me the silent treatment the whole time. I think that's what mostly made me feel like it though. *shrug* Her Mom was like, "she'll get over it when she needs help moving out of her dorm." heh. i'm not helping, the day before i have oral surgery. that's it, that was easter. hope yours was wonderful.

see you all tomorrow. grrr... 5 day week, with tests. i hate it.

yeah i definitely believe that a dream is a wish your heart makes.

weekend is turning out to be not so crappy. thank goodness i got better. Went to Palm Beach yesterday and beached a little and then hung out at this house with my 2nd cousins. Then went to the movies last night with Tina and saw "The Girl Next Door." I like that movie. Today I might go to the beach again and then doing something with Briana tonight. Grandma's house tomorrow.

lalala. danielle was in lala land throughout that whole movie. i put myself in it instead of julia stiles. then it ended and i realized that i am still single and alone. got in the car and decided that i should start taking more chances. i hope my thoughts aren't just thoughts anymore and actions do actually occur. we will see.

.california pictures.

the beautiful scenery of southern california. all though of the time, it was hazy and wasn't visible.

tina's mom wearing the sweatshirt that says, "i'm not listening." good laugh that was.

whole group except for mr.binh and christina. where are the skiers?!

the women. aren't they lovely? now look at that dirty snow in the background. yuck!

that's me with my second family.

so after we did the mountain thing we decided to drive to santa ana a.k.a. little saigon. guess who drove down the mountains? yeah. the wonderful tina. so the first thing we did when we got there.... went to a vietnamese mall.

yeah. asian persuasion baby. that store was cool. all the music, tina and i just wanted to bust a move or two.

yeah Ni bought cinnamon (?) and decided to put the ribbon in mr.binh's hair.

after that interesting trip... we left and went to go eat lobster dinner, vietnamese style.

this is us before dinner started. notice the writing in the background on the window... yeah, are we eating in a travel agency?

so sweet of a picture, tina's mom's smile at her husband. <3 they love each other. <3

mmm... lobster.

everyone was impressed with my open-mind to all the food. what can i say? i love food.

yeah. we were crazy by the end of this dinner.

definitely can't laugh with an orange in my mouth, neither can tina. =) what a nice dinner.

the next day we woke up and went to denny's.

mmm... coke in the morning, it's like my coffee.

chilling at denny's. poor vi... she's not in the pic cause she's taking it.

wow how this picture freaks me out.

the lovely women in denny's.

there's a star hiding behind that hand. my mouth is huge!

linh hiding behind the camera.

after denny's we took a trip to the mall.

what a sophisticated woman. very nice too.

the girls who grew up with each other. shopping and looking at thongs in different stores. i began to say, "too bad we aren't sexually active"

driving in the pimp mobile.

after driving for a while we ended up in a japanese restaurant just before meeting dr.wiegel's vietnamese twin.

there goes my love of food again.

japanese doll on the top of the booth.

so that night we drove through los angeles to camarillo, where christina's dad's parents live. the next day (sunday) we drove to santa barbara but we forgot batteries for the digi camera so there are no available pictures from there yet. santa barbara=beautiful and i swear i saw steven speilberg running along the boardwalk. i love the looks i got while riding in the basket of the bicycle. hehe. well the next day it was the girls, me, tina, and her mom. we left tina's dad at his parents to spend time with them and we drove off to beverly hills.

such a nice street sign. what a beautiful street. i adore dior and every other store on that street. <3

lily on rodeo drive. lovely.

so after beverly hills and dim sum in china town i was eager to find the star map of where they all live so we made the right decision to exit hollywood blvd.

doesn't she look like a star? drinking starbucks on hollywood blvd.

so tina was drinking her coffee and she looks down and look who is right below us... god's next door neighbor in heaven. the great walt disney.

so after our stop on hollywood blvd. and getting the star map and the mexican guy in the store where the map was telling me, "you are beautiful." with that nice, soft accent, we left and drove to find homes in the hills. boy did that not work out. but we got laughs. "larry king's house is right up this street! GO!" so we went back to camarillo and traveled to the outlet mall that was not a outlet at all. so we left.

some more pimpness in the pimp mobile.

laid back... such a pimp. maybe the pimpest of the pimp.

so that night we went shopping some more in a scary mall and ate dinner at olive garden in ventura right next to this big car mall. the next day we went to the getty, a museum dedicated to visual art on this hill, just outside of los angeles.

picture with louis.

my future bed.

mother and daughter at the getty.

freaky white elevator.

so after we looked at tons of beautiful art we ate at the super nice restaurant that was part of the museum.

tina and brendan frasier. woot. we were eating lunch where the stars eat.

after eating, we took a look at the gardens.

beautiful rose.



even better.

us in the tran taking us back to the car from the museum.

after the museum we went to the farmers market in hollywood and then to look at star homes. mmm...

we were passing the great osbourne house and the gate was open. woot. good pic.

jack osbourne was in this car. what a good day for the stars. after passing the house for like the fifth time the police pulled up in front of the house... wonder what the trouble was.

playboy mansion anyone? yeah. behind that gate.

behind all those trees and the wall... thats where madonna's house is.

so that was our last day in los angeles/camarillo. here come pics from vegas... you ready? i doubt it.

damn she's sexy. we love that car. it became our second home.

driving into vegas.

my amazement. the lights, the people, buildings... everything..

the pyramid hotel.

this sign. whew. we saw a lot of em. sin city baby, when you go into any hotel room... all you see is sex. not very comforting.

vegas has everything, even it's own castle with a wizard!

bellagio fountains. if only you had your favorite man standing next to you.

to get myself in this position... boy did i look drunk.

so after our night out, the next day we went to red rock national park.

yeah this is lost creek. we are standing behind the waterfall. don't you like my hiking attire?... skirt and flip flops.

just... lol.

that night we got all dressed up to go to the venetian hotel to see a show.

freaken hot.

dancing in the car to ignition

the venetian... another place i was amazed at.

so on friday we drove in the car from vegas to torrance and then back to santa ana for our last dinner.

what a great picture of the two dads.

the women.

the girls at their last fun dinner.

the fish before it was eaten

before we started.

mmm... fish heads.... my favorite thing to eat. j/k!

it's done. boy do your hands smell after you eat that. soap is needed. after we went back to their house.... tried getting me drunk just for laughs.

what a lovely trip. i enjoyed every minute, from getting to know christina's childhood friends, to the drives in the car, to the hotel room by ourselves, to vegas, and everything in between. i loved it all. hope you all enjoy. sorry if you don't have dsl.

i think my stomach is getting sick...
i knew it. mom comes home today and says, "i'm quitting. this job is too much." she goes and her room and sleeps. she just woke up and comes out to the living room to bitch to my dad. she doesn't get the fact that work is work. work means you actually gotta do something. my dad tries to talk to her, telling her that she should just wait it out and not make a desicion with just two days of work. god. she is going on and on. i can't wait til i leave. i remember the reason why i'm going to california with someone else's family now, to get away from mine. my dad... he has three weeks off... i wish he could come to california with us. he deserves it just as much as i do. instead he is going to sit here on his vacation and deal with my insane mother. god help him, and please, pray for him. CALIFORNIA HERE I COME. whew. so glad to get out of here. have a good spring break all!!

<3 you.

pics from last night.

Val and I chilling waiting for bowling to begin.

Val and I at Denny's. Can't you see the ghettoness in me? Only white member of g-unit!!

filipinos rock my socks.

last night was fun. bowling with valerie and ashley and a bunch of people i didn't know. then denny's afterwards. it was nice seeing val.

today was nice. i did absolutely zero of anything. i'm glad tina is back. i'm getting into you because you got to me in a way words can't describe. 4 days of school. say what? woot. no work to do either. danielle's dream week... i think so.

love you all.

yep, finished with this paper almost. about one more page left. get to bed before 12? i doubt it. what is there to say tonight?

oh yes. i shall be getting a job soon, that means, saving up money, more stress, and less time to hang out with friends. doesn't it all sound great? i guess it's necessary though if i want the things i want like a car. desperately want one of those. i've come to the conclusion that i don't care what it is, as long as it runs and takes me places. today i drove to the library after school, oh how i love driving, lets me think and feel in control.

the prince and me advertisement is on AIM. everytime i look at it i imagine me as being julia stiles and dancing with the prince. i can't wait to see that movie.

blah. fcat today. science part. done so early, thank goodness, finished my daybook which will be good to turn in on time for once.

i think that is all for now. slap happiness all night long. =)
