Sometimes we need to wait for a long time to get a cone of ice cream..

I arrived at my grandparent’s house in the afternoon. When we arrived there, my mom’s aunt, her daughter, and one of her grandson were in my grandparents’ house, chatted and joked with my aunts and uncles from Jakarta. And my mom also joined them. I was so awkward there >< They kept joking, I joined and yah, but I couldn’t really talk there
About 2.30PM, they stopped talking (finally XD Oh, I sounds like a mean girl DX). They went to their home, and my mom, my aunt (my mom’s sister), and I went to the mall. Before that, we said goodbye to my 3rd uncle and his wife because they wanted to go back to Jakarta. See you later, uncle and aunt ><
I arrived at the cinema on the top of the mall at 3PM. My biggest cousin said that the movie will started at 3.30PM. Then, my mom offered us to eat ice cream first. So, we went one floor below to eat it. I ate vanilla noodle ice cream (ice cream that shaped like noodles), 1 of my cousins ate fruit ice cream (vanilla ice cream with few fruits below), and 6 of my cousins ate macedonia (ice cream with quite-hard liquor in the middle) –> I’ve ever tried it but I don’t like it XD. We took +15 minutes to finished our ice creams.
We watched the Amazing Spiderman 4 in the cinema, with my cousins. Well, I like it, no comment about it, because I’m not good at giving comment :), sorry
After that, we went back to my grandparents’ house, and talked and chatted like usual..

Well, today isn’t too fun 😦 2 of my cousins from Jakarta joined my 2nd uncle, my aunt, and my biggest cousin to Lumajang. But they won’t stay there for a night. But still, they will arrived in Surabaya very late midnight.
Finally, I GOT MY LETTERS!! YIHAAAAAAA XDDDDDDDD. This holiday I just got 1 letter on June and 2 letters on July (arrived today). It’s quite unusual for me, because usually I arrive lots of letter every week 😦
The quite fun thing happened in the evening. My 2 cousins (other cousins from Jakarta) acted like radio announcers. They were soooo funny. I couldn’t stop laughing. And one of them also made a funny story. It started about the chickens that my grandpa bought (the conversations and the way he told it made it funny) and ended about…. Oh, I forgot. There were no ending. The story just stopped. I’m going to ask him about the continuation tomorrow, I think XD
Have you watched the Amazing Spiderman 4? What do you think about it? And what’s the funniest story that you’ve ever made, with or without your family?

2 days ago , my 4 cousins, 2 aunts and 2 uncles from Jakarta (Indonesia capital city) came to Surabaya (my city!) ^^
The first family to come was my mom’s little sister’s family. They arrived at 12 o’clock. I was shocked at my 2 cousins height [G & V], THEY ARE VERY TALL @.@ And I looked at myself, “Oh, why am I so small…”
I had a quite awkward time with G & V because we didn’t meet for a year, so I heard my aunt and my mom chatted about everything. Their story were interesting, between nostalgia and their life stories. And they also complained why were my other 2 cousins, my aunt, and my uncle (my mom’s 3rd brother, her 1st and 2nd brother + his family lives in Surabaya) hadn’t arrived.
Around 2PM, they finally arrived. Yay~ My other cousin (A) is very tall, he’s the tallest among us, cousins. And his little brother, (Jv) is taller than me too DX. Their mom (Ld) gave all of us eclairs that she had made. Very delicious~ :3
We had a quite awkward time with them too, because of the same problem :p
At 4PM, the awkward moment moved away. I talked with my cousins about National Geographic channel, and laughed, better than before ^^
In the evening, we prepared for dinner outside, to a yummy steak restaurant. Jv’s steak that he ordered before my mom’s 1st brother family came, taken by my mom’s 1st brother (D)! Poor Jv… He must waited for half an hour (until our steak already eaten, except D’s wife and son, and he felt very hungry)
After the dinner, we went home. All of the family member from Jakarta stay in my grandparents’ home
(June 28th, 2012)
I went to my grandparents’ home in the afternoon. My mom and I were very hungry, but no food left there. My grandma didn’t cook because in the morning they ate at the soto restaurant. So, my mom and I ordered a fried rice
After we ate our fried rice, I practiced music with G & V, and had the name “Son, Daughter, and Grandchildren’s Band” (It’s a band for our grandparents). I play the violin, G plays the electric guitar, V plays the recorder, my mom’s little sister’s husband, R, plays the guitar and arrange our play. My only female cousin, Lf, maybe will play the piano / keyboard (We haven’t practiced with Lf). We will performed June 29th and June 30th. After practicing, I looked at the clock, whoa.. We used hours for practicing our play XD
In the evening, my mom’s sister’s family, my grandparents, my mom and I went to Lf’s house. We talked a lot there~! I was kind of disturbed because my mom and grandma kept asking me and my cousins to speak Chinese. I’m bad at Chinese! DX and also English, English is okay, I’m quite good at it. But I answered their question using Indonesian because I’m not confident to talk in English in front of everyone 😦
7.30PM, Lf and his father (L) <note: Lf’s mom (S) and Lf’s big brother (H) went to a seminar== > asked us to eat ice cream. Of course we agreed!
At the ice cream place, it was so crowded! We couldn’t find tables and seats, so we waited. Lf and I acted like the guards, the table guards, to be exactly. I almost want to laugh whenever I think about it. A group of middle-age woman wanted to take the table that we guarded before (they came after us), of course we were angry, and we won, they didn’t take our table, hahahah 8D After a quite long time, finally we gathered 3 tables, with 10 chairs. Finally we ordered and ate our ice cream.
That’s my story about the 27th and the 28th of June ^^ The thing that I won’t forget is that my family always ask about the bandage above my eyebrows (where I had my mole removed) XD
So, what are your interesting activities these days? How many cousins do you have and do you meet them regularly? Have you ever had a big family reunion?
