Home Sweet Home!

I’m home! I had an utterly fantastic time in China & Taiwan but I am somewhat relieved to be home. 3 weeks is a long time to be away. I think the kitties missed us. =)

It’s a little odd to see and hear everything in English again. It’s gonna take me a couple days to re-adjust. Hopefully I won’t keep talking to Judy in Chinese like she’ll understand me. She says I kept doing that to her in China… =P

We were uber dorks and took costumes to China. I finally got around to making a Green Snake costume so I can cross it off my To Do List! It was totally awesome cause people were definitely recognizing Aimee and me (probably cause we both based our outfits on tv versions), and Judy did an original costume.

Marcus says people were commenting about how amazed they were that we made the costumes, because while people wearing costumes to the Summer Palace is fairly common, they’re usually rented. Everyone was very cool and friendly about us dressing up; the people working there seemed to love it and we got chased down a bunch for photos.

I posted our Summer Palace photos on HCC’s Livejournal.
More photos to come later!

Photos from 2010’s Dance Performance

I should be working. Instead I am going to crawl into bed with my book. I am currently reading an unabridged translation of Three Kingdoms in an attempt to actually have a clue about the characters that extends beyond the Dynasty Warriors video game. =D It’s an amazing book and I’m loving it. I just finished the chapter about Diao Chan who’s a total minx and I think she’s awesome.

2010 Dance Videos

I am so behind on catching up with people and posting on LJ! Going to try to be better about it if I survive my next few work deadlines.

We just got our performance video from the 2010 Showcase. I have to say that I was far less enthused about this last year’s dances (except for the snake dance) so I’ll post the videos but I’m kind of enh on them. ^^;

Snake Dance Practice Video

Actually the official name is Green Snake and White Snake and it’s based on the Legend of the White Snake which is one of my favorite Chinese stories. I’ve learned a couple White Snake bits for Chinese Opera but this is my first time getting to be Green Snake. I have wanted to be Green Snake since I was a little girl. Dream come true! LOL
