I have returned from the winter travels! I posted all my pictures on Facebook, so that should give you an idea of the trip. We started out with 2 days in San Francisco, then 2 days in Hong Kong, and then 2 weeks in Taiwan. Though most of the time in Taiwan was spent at the hospital with grandma, we still managed to have a little time for fun.
Oh, and after talking about nothing but the Kindle on my blog for the past few months? For Christmas/Chinese New Year, my uncle in Taiwan gave me the money to get one! The only problem is . . . now I can't bring myself to actually buy it. I keep hearing all these rumours of a new Apple e-reader, and seriously, so many of them are coming out! I need to wait a few months before making a solid decision. Hopefully by then I haven't already spent the money! haha.
On the last day of our journey home, I somehow got food poisoning and I ended up in the hospital with an iv stuck in me getting lots of tests! It was crazy.
Okay, as I'm typing this, I'm realizing that obviously waking up early with jetlag does not help with my writing skills, so I'll have to continue with the post another day.
Waiting for the New Year's Eve fireworks to begin.
