Beginnings and Endings

I want a Surface Pro! Hopefully 4 if that ever comes out. But if that comes out and it’s worse than the 3, I’ll probably get the 3.
That being said, I don’t know if I can justify the price =/.
We shall see as the year progresses.

In other news my cousin got married last year!
Congratulations Rachel!
The photo quality of my phone isn’t the best, especially under low lighting, but these are the best photos from the day.

The start of this year has been a little crazy.
I remember New Year’s Day driving back from Brandon’s on the M4, the fireworks were going off at Sydney Speedway, and I thought to myself “that’s awesome, I forgot how magical fireworks were up close. This is going to be a great year! We should really go to the speedway with Nathan and Eve cause it’ll be fun and they live so close”

That was my goal, to make this year fantastic, awesome, amazing, great! Then a few weeks later Brandon’s Papou passed away. It was crushing, for everyone that knew him. Everyone’s thoughts went to his Yaiyai and they still do. I was a bit of a mess for the one day that I did go to work, though everyone at work was really supportive. Brandon was staying strong for the family the while time.

Papou was a great man, more than words can describe. I didn’t know him long, but for the years that I did, I’m grateful. Maybe if you ask me, I’ll tell you a bit about him =).

I was going to write a bit more. But maybe next time.

Take care,
Helen ♥

China Day #2-#8, April 13-20 – The First Week

Sooo, I’ve gotten extremely lazy, and I’m just going to blog this as fast as I can…
This is how my first week in China went.

Lack of Clothing

Lack of Clothing

Wednesday, 13th
Went to pay our respects my aunt and tried on my brides maid dress. It was a little loose, so they decided to take it in a bit, the beginning of the dress drama.

– Realising my mum packed my tops without proper bottoms, which left me having to wear a long top with tights and chucks XD.
– Got into a unmarked ‘personal’ taxi, so very safe I know XD.

Thursday, 14th
Went sightseeing at Litichi Bay and shopping with my aunts. Had a huge feast with everyone on my dad’s side of the family.

– Finally got a pair of long shorts, it’s hot here at times.
– My mum and aunts telling off my uncles off for giving my grandma alcohol, XD which they later found out was just apple juice.
– Listening to my uncles say the funniest things and make horrible kungfu moves.

After my haircut

Friday, 15th
Went shopping with my parents and Holly. I tried on my bridesmaid dress and it was… TOO TIGHT! XD. We had to force the zipper up, I couldn’t breathe or move much, so they had to quickly send it off to get it adjusted again.

They told us it’d be ready in 3 hours, so I went to get a haircut, it’s short now, and then went back to the store and… IT WAS STILL TIGHT! I could breathe a little better, but my ribs still poked out. Sooo off we went with a dress in hand to the store where the adjuster could get to more easily.

They adjusted it, and yay was finally able to breathe, but truth be told it’s still a little too tight, cause my ribs can still be seen. But there wasn’t anymore time to adjust it.

– Talking to the hairdresser and his apprentice in english.
– Buying my straw hat and two awesome jackets.

Bridal Party and Groom =D

Saturday, 16th

Day of my cousin’s wedding. It was tiring,and I had no idea what I was suppose to do, and everyone else seemed lost as well and I couldn’t read chinese. But it all worked out in the end XD.

Caught the Bouquet

– I endedup being the maid of honour, so I held the bride’s umbrella, rode in the car and walked with her down the aisle.
– Also caught the bouquet, which resulted me in being questioned on stage XD.

Sunday, 17th
Went to my cousin’s area for lunch and  and a fitness class.
XD that was pretty fun. It was pretty much the only place in Guangzhou that wasn’t crowed with buildings and people.

– Discovered I still can’t touch my toes XD.

Monday, 18th
Bishuiwan hot springs!!! That’s pretty much all I can say, I can’t describe how awesome it was, except that the service was exceptional, drinks were unlimited and brought around to you, the facilities we beautiful and it was just a fun relaxing day.

– Also had a blizzard ice cream from the dairy queen, mmmmm ^^.

Goats of Guangzhou

Tuesday, 19th
Did a lot of sight-seeing and shopping which all involved a lot of walking, my feet felt so dead afterwards XD.

Got to see some pretty cool features of Guangzhou, like the five goats to the left. Apparently my dad use to climb it as a kid XD. I can’t remember the name of the structure though =(.
