it was a random day and i tried to make sushi for my colleagues. but it didn’t turned out well. i tried to re-make the japanese egg but it was chao-ta. argh. then there was avocado too! and i think mayo and seaweed xh bought from some korean supermart and of course the japanese rice which i brought. honestly i didn’t think it tasted that great but aww, they just had to eat it because i made it. la la la.

finally my off day, and i guess it will be rather long because we went to six flags!we booked a taxi there. supposed to get one free ticket but some crappy circumstances and we were late. we had 1 for 1 promotion with the cocacola promotion and yes, u buy a coke and u get 1 for 1. but there was odd number so we ended up paying $32 each. omg let’s start with the 6 flags adventure. i dont think i will ever take that many roller coasters in my life ever again =/ succumb to peer pressure.
i find this shot very artistic.
batman’s car. remind me of jay chou’s car.

yes it is really crazy.
we saw this carriage got stuck there for quite some time. i would have died and never sat any roller coaster ever again if that happened to me.
i didn’t sit this.
i almost didn’t sit this because i thought it was sudden drop.
i think this was the superman ride which i will sit later.
this was the nitro ride that crazy ride just now.
this is the great american scream machine
it’s really a super man ride because they tilt u till ur blood rushes to ur head.
u get what i mean? u can fly like superman, put ur arms out like superman. and feel your head blood vessels exploding.
omg omg. this is the worse. kingda ka.
Six Flags Great Adventure
Fastest AND tallest roller coaster in the world!
hundred and twenty eight miles per hour. it was 50-60 in the previous 3..
you just die in this ride alright. but it is barely 90seconds. that’s how fast it was =/
this was terrible too, because it was rather old and wooden and u feel that it’s gonna split any moment. i think that’s the thriller part of wooden coasters.
we took bizzaro,the log ride and a couple of others not worth mentioning or im just lazy.
overall, it was really fun and totally worth the entrance tix. seriously, it is half price of disneyland or universal studio.
we had a problem finding a way back. something like the taxi cannot fetch us because it was outside his zone, and the priced quoted to us by the other taxi was crazily expensive. we ended up taking public transport to somewhere else and got a cab back. it was kinda an adventure to feel lost, but of course i was annoyed because i hate the feeling of not knowing what to do. but i guess i should learn to deal with this emotion and obviously we reached home safely. i think we ate some zajiangmian that day too. was it? haha the tw ppl came over to cook again! but it’s funny that i’m over with the tw craze. LOL. so im not excited anymore about anything taiwan. zomg.
8th July 2010
i never like days after my off-days. it has such a relaxing feel.
i cooked the bibimbak mix i bought from muji before i left. seems like before i went to usa, i made it a point to meet up with alot of people before i leave. now that i’m back, why am i so lazy to meet up with people. what an irony. oh wells.
9th July 2010
probably stayed up very late the night before because i woke up at 3pm and work starts at 5. the good thing about waking up late is u get to skip 1-2 meals. lol. and i went to the arcade and threw money in again. shall not put down the amount i spent. haha. but i was still short of 4,550 tix at this point in time. remember, my target is 18,000.
random art pieces at work. this was shuo huang lyrics. this song really has a lot of memories for me. and i just heard another damn emo song on radio, tu ran hao xiang ni by wu yue tian. =/ what a way to remember 2010. oh wells.
now you know why my boss hates me? this is what i do when i am bored. its the best way to attract the attention of the small kids. HAHAHA. i’m such a pro at this 😀
i drew this because everyone keep asking for the price of cotton candy when they can just turn their head and see the sign on the other side. obviously i didn’t hang this. i would have died. what’s the bad thing about me. i have too many opinions of my own and bosses don’t like it =/ anyway, u see the chocolates, i drew every single piece of chocolate for sale. wait, there were more! haha i’m quite proud of myself actually.
this is very cute too! the triple dipped apples and the apples family. haha. how we always hoped certain apple can’t be sold so we can feast on it. and how i love cutting apples.
i drew this potrait for the shop.. i’m quite a detail person when it comes to drawing.
this is so cute right. omg my heart melts when random kids go lile, “OMG that’s SPONGEBOB!”
the reason why my hours get lesser and lesser each week. oh wells. there is more to life.
10th July 2010
it was a nice day because we finally ate jersey mike subs! i can’t find the picture online and im lazy to upload. oh wait i found it.

11th July 2010
woke up at 1. can’t wake up any later. had to go experience the world cup in USA. ya the land of the baseball and american football. well, went to pavilion bar anyway. there were just a small group, probably 10% there for the world cup.
heehee. managed to see my torres on bigger screen and even though he underperformed. omg my heart was up and down throughout the whole match. it was a killer emotion. much worse than the euro 08 experience i had. it was like omg OMG HOW. are they going to win or lose. omg. what if i feel so upset. OMG. it was CRAZY. i was prepared to be late for work just to finish watching even if it drags on. OMG. it was MAD. i totally can’t control my whole emotions but whatever, SPAIN WON. im supposed to buy their jersey. haha but i haven’t.
evidence of him on the big screen 😀 it was hard taking a photo after the emotional roller coaster.
didn’t like the food but we got a really good discount! the trick is to pretend you are friendly with whoever that is serving u. AHAHA. and of course don’t get caught while doing it.
and that’s the end of week 8. with spain winning the world cup!
everyone loves spain!
omg im seriously dead tired. this took me almost 2 hours =/ and i dread the part where i have to blog about the travelling part. OH MY Gawd. argh argh argh. no i will persevere =/
Till next time~
