For the past week

Carson said he seemed to sense a theme running through my blog post. Maybe that's true.

The theme is "enjoying". Perhaps it is also the theme of my whole life. Love what I've chosen and enjoy what I'm doing. Work hard and play hard.

Now I've just a little recovered from the sadness of my "treasure loss" two weeks ago. Although the imprint of the watch leaving on my wrist due to my long time wearness has faded gradually, I'm still not used to the life without my dear watch. How I miss you...

Since my camera has been died, I don't think there will be more pictures in my blog. Forgive me for that, my dear readers.

Last week was a week for movie, because I went to the Showcase Cenima several times and watched some huge movies including "Harry Potter and the Half-blood Princess""Transformer 2""G-Force in Real 3D". It's really different to watch a film in the treater where you have a chance to enjoy great visual and listening pleasure from on the laptop.

To be honest, I don't like the Harry Potter films as much as the books, especially for Harry Potter 6. You must get totally lost unless you know the whole story previously from the book. The director made up some ridiculous plots, but deleted some other important ones without which you can't have deep understanding of the story. The only thing worth mentioning is that the visual effect of the beginning is amazing especially when the death-eaters are flying.

It is said that there'll be HP6 of IMAX+3D version. Really looking forward to that.

"Transformer 2" and "G-Force" are much better than HP6. Those guinea pigs are extremely cute.

On Friday evening, after swimming, I went to Michigan Union for the Ballroom dancing party held by UMCSSA. It was my first time to enter Michigan Union except the lower ground. To tell you the truth, I was a little worried about what to wear for dancing, because I don't take many dresses with me for these two months. But not as expected, the dancing party was not former at all. The room was full of T-shirts, jeans and sneakers. Oh, my god! At the first time I entered the room, I was so surprised that I was not sure whether I've been in the right room.
The whole party was laughed at by one of my friends by three words -- "no music, no wine, no beauties" who came wearing a nice suit, but went upstairs to play Billiard balls instead.

Quite embarassed...

I got up late on Saturday morning and went swimming a little while in the afternoon. The pool was filled with people that afternoon most of which were Chinese. In the evening, I was invited to a friend's home for dinner. He cooked for me, because I'm not good at cooking at all. It was the most Chinese food I had these days and it was unusually delicious. I regret now I didn't eat more. We went to Kroger at midnight that day and ran across my mentor. What a surprise~ She looked quite pretty that night.

On Sunday evening, we went to Northwood 5 to learn to make Schwarzwaelder Kirschtorte (such a long name, it's a kind of cake actually with cherry as its feature).
I called a friend who also lives in Northwood 5 to come to the cake workshop, but the activity ended much earlier than I've expected. So I just left before my friend came because I needed somebody's ride to go back home and couldn't wait for him any longer. He said he was embarrassed going there just finding me gone... Oh, I was really sorry for that.

What an embarrassing weekend...

  1. Haha, I think the theme I noticed was "handsome men"! But I like your theme idea too.

    I agree with you about HP6 - the book was great but the film was a tiny bit confusing. What was up with that scene in the field outside the the Burrow?!

    I tried dancing once at the Michigan Union too - it was tango lessons, and I went with my friend Katherine who was around 5'0" tall. We tried dancing together but we were both very bad and we had such a huge height difference!

    I LOVE that cake... I have a very good recipe for it... I should share it with you and then you can't say "I'm not good at cooking at all" any more! :)
