12/01/2002 Archived Entry: "II Birthdays"

Yesterday was my friend and uncle's birthdays. Is it just me or are there more birthdays clustered towards the end of the year? There never seem to be any birthdays during... like, say... the spring. At least that's what it's always felt like for me. *shrugs*

Friend's (Nanona's) party:
More or less an informal gathering. We basically gathered at his house and spent our time there.

He was playing Harvest Moon for PS2. We had some fun with that. You wouldn't believe that Harvest Moon would be such a great party game, but we certainly made it one. ^_^ When he raced his horse, we were all like: "Go! Go! Take the inside!" And when he went to pick up on the girls, we were all like: "Go! Get your mack on!" ^_^ Good stuff. I gotta pick up that game sometime. XD

Then we played foose ball! Yes, I admit, I've never really played foose ball before, but after a game or two, I started doing rather decently for a guy who had only played for a game or two. ^_^ I suck at defense as usual. ;_; I don't get it. When I play table games (or at least foose ball and air hockey), I always seem to have the crappiest defense. ;_;

Grandpa's party:
Thing especially special. Just going out to eat, really.

When we got to the restaurant, we were pleasantly greeted by a Viet wedding reception. You know what that means? Lots and lots o' people. There were maybe three, four tables what were not being reserved. We had to take up two of those tables. -_- So, it was all like, here we were on this one side of the restaurant, all by ourselves, and everywhere else, it was the wedding crowd. -_- It didn't help that we were the only peoples who were there aside from the wedding folks. -_- Oh well. We basically just minded our own business and ate.

Chinese seafood we did consume. I think the restaurant was called... "Grand Fortune." Let me just say that that place wasn't all that great. -_- I've been to plenty of Chinese seafood places. There are tons around here and my family doesn't seem to eat any other kinds of food when they go out. -_- Because of this, I can kinda gauge things like the quality of that type of food. The food there was lacking in flavor. It seemed like everything was just milder than it should have been. I don't know about you, but eating food lacking in flavor just kinda takes the fun out of eating. Unless, of course, the dish is supposed to be mild. Unfortunately, these weren't supposed to be. -_- Bah.... At least there was a Tapioca Express right nearby. I popped in and got myself a peach milk tea with pearls. Mmm~.... I didn't know there was a Ioca on Monterey Road in San Jose.... Note note....

Now my cousin from So Cal's staying over. We intend to do something in just a bit. He's still asleep, so I suppose I'll take this opportunity to continue my work on my research paper for philosophy. Ciao!

Good luck with the studying, imouto! ^_^ Like I said, you'll be getting e-mails. Although, considering the time it takes me to get off my lazy butt to actually write one, it might take a little while. ^_^;;;

Thanks for the compliment. So my log is a "mad mad page," eh? Of course it is. XD

Agh.... I've forgotten... The point is.. writing in Vietnamese is difficult T_T;... Even if you're born in America, you start at the bottom and learn your way up. >_>.. I proved to improve fast in the Vietnamese writing-classes ^_~ aghh... but i've forgotten everything @_@;

Oi, oi! One more comment from Mizuki. ...I was forced to go to a 'Temple' as they called it. We did religious Buddhist things everyday and was taught Vietnamese and such, had break, etc. (Guess what! We see -real monks ^^;;) And in the end, we were in a circle, sing a song, given food and left >_>.. It was like that every Sunday! I was forced to go to Sunday school, and it was a bore. It was more like I only had one day as a weekend >_>.. Well, I'm happy to say that I'm out of 'Temple' ~~~ WHHOOO!!!
