wow, where to start…3 days ago, i guess. haha, let’s hope i remember what happened. we first met up with my mom’s friend who graduated from Caltech! He was interesting and took us to this sketchball restaurant for lunch. it was really dirty and there were flies hovering over the vat of unattended soup. yucky.
we then went to the picasso museum and MAN WERE THOSE PAINTINGS DISTURBING. i think i probably saw more boobies than you with your “bad teacher” movie. trust me. but yeah, the scenery here is so gorgeous. it sucks that you guys arent here for me to share it with. i think im going totally crazy because in order to cope with how much i miss you guys, i kinda just imagine what my day would be like or what type of conversations i’d have with you guys if we had all taken this trip together. haha, stupid, i know.
oh, then my mom’s friend took us especially to go see those stores that kill snakes for you to eat just so i could look at snakes. it was SO COOL, they were HUGE. but my mom wouldnt let me have one :( i threw a temper tantrum.
then we came home and watched “i am number four” it was pretty good. but i hate how like there were so many poppy outty surprises! it was so scary! i was jumping in my seat so much, i hate that! >< but yeah, i ranted for like 20 minutes about the cliffhanger ending.
the next day we woke up at 5 am in the morning to drive to the mountains and sun moon lake. i spent the entire car ride singing (big surprise) and sleeping. oh and at the lunch restaurant we ate at, it was so awkward cuz some one missed the floor toilet and peed blood all over the floor. nastyy. my sister also took forever in this one bathroom because she was killing all the ants in her stall. i was like “seriously..?”
we drove up a mountain and it was really cool because it was so high that the road we drove on was covered in clouds. i loved that part. my sister and i have this new thing where we exclaim “woahhh” multiple times in a really dumb voice whenever we something remotely interesting. i can see how that gets annoying though. haha
our hotel was AMAZING, everything was controlled by the MASTER PANEL which was touch screen. it controlled lights, music, tv, EVERYTHING. it was really fun cuz every time my mom used the bathroom i’d turn off the lights after a few seconds and she’d start yelling at me. the first day there my parents tried getting me to ride bikes with them but i was afraid i’d fall into the lake. so we went boating instead. and must i say, it was HILARIOUS.
so mainly, after we finally got a hang of asian row boating, my sister suddenly starts shrieking her head off and runs to the front of the boat. and im like “Wtf are you doing?!??!” and she’s like screaming “SPIDER SPIDER SPIDER” and pointing at her oar. and there was this HUGE A$$ spider right on her oar handle, so we start splashing water at it and it starts like flying at us. so we both are like running around our tiny boat and screaming and this family on a motor boat passes us. so my sister starts screaming “HELP HELP HELP” and they just laugh at us and drive away. then this other guy comes on a jet ski and (in chinese) he’s all like “do you need help rowing?” and we’re like “NO, there’s a spider!!” and he just nods pleasantly and drives away too. so after we finished screaming, we manage to position the spider so it wouldnt interfere with rowing and like rowed back to the dock as fast as we could. then we switched boats and continued, but i decided to trick my sister and scream “SPIDER” really loudly, and she jumped up and started shrieking her head off again, and i broke down laughing. she almost pushed me out of the boat that time. it started pouring so we headed back. everyone biked back but i had to walk :( i tried running, but i stopped after 10 seconds….*cough*
anyways, the buffet for our dinner was AMAZING, it literally had everything. and super expensive ice cream too. then we went to our room and watched “she’s the man”.
the next day we checked out of the awesome hotel (here’s the site http://www.smlh.com.tw/home/index.php check it out, it’s super cool). and we rode cable cars (omfg it was so scary at the beginning cuz im afraid of heights, but it was a beautiful view) to an amusement park. my sister loves roller coaster, but i hate them, but she kept whining that she wanted me on them. so my mom paid me $20 to go on the rides with her. they bought the stupid log ride picture -.- i hope she doesnt put that on facebook, cuz i was SO FREAKING SCARED. i was gonna freaking pee my pants…but space mountain was fun, we rode it like 3 times. i feel proud of myself. afterwards we went riding on a boat and then we headed home (more singing). but yeah, the amusement park was tons of fun.
oh also, there was a jurassic park ride and they spelled the “long neck dinosaur” as “brontosaurus” so i guess im right? woopee.
ohohoh anddd it’s pretty cool since my mom has 4 brother right? so two of them live here in taiwan and they are SO NICE. they pay for the hotels, restaurants, so much stuff with the excuse that we hafta “shop and buy stuff” so they want to cover other expenses. im like “wow, so awesome.” speaking of my uncles, we were in a restaurant and i was sad they didn’t let me keep the coke bottle because it was one of those rare antique ones that they don’t make anymore. it even had “coke” in chinese on it. it was so cool. so while i was in the mountains with uncle 4, uncle 2 went out looking for these antique coke bottles and bought the closest thing he could find. not exactly the cool ones, but they still have the old shape. which was awesome. they are so cool.
im having a great time here. but it’d be definitely cooler if i could share my experiences directly with you guys.
