Summer, College, and Procrastination

Jiu Zhai Gou

Hey everyone - sorry for the long long hiatus *_* After AP tests and finals, I went back to China & spent the whole summer with my extended family. My cousins, aunts, and I travelled to Shanghai, Hangzhou, Chengdu, Shaoxing, Jiu Zhai Gou, etc. I even went to Hong Kong for the first time!

Shanghai

Of course, summer in China means massive cheap CD shopping sprees for me ^_^ With the help & advice of makzhou - I found some nice, cheap, and none-pirated Japanese CD shops in Shanghai & Hong Kong. I also bought some Taiwan albums (ironically) in Hong Kong :P and mainland wise - the CDs I've acquired ranged from Modern Sky compilations to Stefanie Sun. It was awesome.

Hong Kong

Another fun thing is that I actually caught a worthwhile concert this summer! In Hong Kong! I must be really lucky, because the weekend I was there, piana had a concert there! Hmm, I can't believe I never mentioned piana in my blog. Well, soon :o)

Hong Kong

After feeding myself massive amounts of food, fun, and music (greedy greedy me...), I flied back in late August - and college soon started *_^ Thus, the past month I've been trying to adjust to the new enviornment, new people, new, tiny dorm room, etc. etc.

Shanghai Sea Aquarium

But I'm back now ^_^ and I hope everyone had an awesome summer!

Welcome back, Philly! Sounds like you had an awesome summer. I'm looking forward to more new music samples whenever you find the time to post. (I'm sure you'll be very busy with school this year.)
