Berries (?) in front of the hotel in Revelstoke. The hotel is ‘in the middle of the forest’, and the window from my room was facing the forest, which is quite scary at night

This is my first time using flickr to add the photos in my blog.. I’m sorry if it’s different from my usual post ><

Dry Ice and Me – September 25th, 2012

I love ice cream, and my mom just bought lots of ice cream yesterday! >w<

But the main topic of today’s post is not about ice cream

Have you ever bought ice cream somewhere? And what do the seller usually give, with the ice cream?

Dry ice!

I love playing with the dry ice. Not touching them >< (my fingers will be frozen and red if I do that :O) but… put the dry ice into a bowl or glass and give water on it! 😀 It’s so fun~

See the dark photos? I took these photo in my living room, it’s dark and I must use fast shutter speed to make the movement frozen. I’ve edited them but the noise appeared (and I don’t like it) :/

 

I used to play with the dry ice until I’m bored and throw all of the remaining dry ice, but yesterday, I made a new innovation too : shampoo + water + dry ice : more fun!

Bubbles! And when they pop, it becomes ‘smoke’

 

You can try it at home too! 😀

This is the Sunken Garden, the first beautiful huge garden after we come in. Unfortunately, when I took this photo, someone passing by (bottom left of the photo) >< It ruined the photo DX I can’t do the editing too, so.. yah.. I left that photo like that :/

It’s very hard to take this photo >< My lens is 18-55mm, and I don’t use and don’t have tripod. I tried to get close as possible to the bee, shot once, and, it flew. Fyuhh.. Good thing that I can take this photo just the same as the one in my mind :3

Do you see the pond? It shaped cross. Also didn’t take much photo here because I was too excited with the ice cream ><

Those are my photos in the Butchart Gardens, Canada~ What do you think about the gardens, and my photos? ^^ Really appreciate your comment! 😀

My Parents 20th Wedding Anniversary

Hi! I’m sorry for the delay in posting the photos of my journey to Canada T.T I don’t have time yet, school has been very busy! ><

I’ll tell and share some photos of what my parents and I did last September the 9th, 2012 ^^

My dad wanted to have the anniversary in the hotel, so he booked the hotel and gave surprise to my mom.

So, on Sunday, September 9th, 2012, we checked in to the one of the five stars hotel in my city. My dad booked the suite omg ><

When we came in, the ‘living room’ table greeted us~ There are bouquet, chocolate cake (well, I didn’t taste it 😛  my mom had already given it to her employees hehehe), a vase of red flower, fruits, small cookies, and chocolates.

After we put our things there, we went swimming~ 😀 We swam for about 1 hour, until the sky was dark, and then ate our dinner.

The dinner is the all you can eat one, we ate quite a lot. I took the main desserts a lot more than the main course XD The restaurant was so noisy, there were 3 people celebrating their birthday so we kept hearing the happy birthday song, sang by the hotel staffs.

When we went back again to our room, I was so sleepy. But before that, of course I brushed my teeth and changed my clothes to my pajama.

In the morning, I ordered a breakfast for one person in the room. I ate a fried rice, drank hot chocolate, milk, carrot juice and water (too bad I didn’t take a photo of it ><)

My dad and my mom, without ate anything, drove me to my school. Wah, I couldn’t stop laughing on the way to school because it’s so unusual, going to school not from home, but from hotel, hahaha 😀

The story ended here ^^

How long have your parent been married? 😛

Few of My Photos in Victoria, Day 2

I think I don’t have the strength to make a written blog post yet, so I’ll share few of my travelling photos~ 😀

These are the photos taken on day 2 of my trip to Canada

*I won’t include the photos in Butchart Gardens here because there are various photos and I want to make it on a separate post* 🙂

This is the photo that I took from the upper deck of the ferry, from Tsawwassen Terminal to Swartz Bay Terminal. Look at the pattern of the shadow, it makes this photo unique, I think 🙂
