Hong Kong Disneyland!!!

Okay it is late! But It was fun! SMALL but fun! We had so much fun shopping for our future baby! You can see some of the things we bought little Tristin (well hopefully it will be a boy first!) This Disneyland didn't have many rides at all, it was mostly centered on the shows and parades. They did have space mountain which I have never been on. That was way cool. Over all it was really nice to just have a break from teaching. As far as Hong Kong goes, we were not that impressed. We found it expensive and hard to get around. Plus really dirty. We are definitely parcial to Taiwan.
Unfortunately it won't let me upload anymore so I will try later!

happy new years

For New years eve we went to dinner at a Hot pot place with Jack again. He taught us how to eat cor on the cob taiwan style (on your cop stick). Mine ended up in my lap the first time I tryed to do it. But it was a great dinner and we had a cute little boy stop us and talk to us. His english was really good. Other then all the taiwaneese people staring at us, we really enjoyed the dinner. After dinner we cruized around xiemin and I got a cool warm scarf, I was going to need one to keep warm because it was sooo cold. Xieman is definitely the "young" persons hang out. I love it. There are hardly any older people there. It is just a really Large fun place to go to just hang out or go shopping and get lots of really good food.
Michael and Jack with Dinner, Hot Pot!
This was a really cute bunny hat and the scarf I did buy!

You can see the scarf on the picture below! I didn't get the hat. Though, my head wished I had because it was SOOOO Freakin' Cold outside.

Getting around in the public transportation took a little bit longer (2 hours) then normal. As you can see in the picture below the MRT was packed with people (at least they aren't driving drunk unlike California). It was definitely a fun experience. I loved it!

Okay well, We are going to our Ward Temple night! I will have to comtinue this post later tonight! or in the morning!

Christmas Day Events! Yikes!

Okay so Christmas was a WAY different Experience for me. First Michael spent the morning, which I didn't mind this part, playing fable II with his brother Steven. Then, we had to go to imigration Center to try to get my resident visa! Evidently Marriage isn't a good enough reason for me to stay in Taiwan with My husband. So we get their and we got a BIG FAT NO!!!

I am forced to leave, BUT it isn't going to be that bad! We are going to go to Hong Kong on the 12th of this month (January) and go to Disneyland there and do a little bit of site seeing there. Not too bad then I just do what they have been having me do this whole time and just start over! We had to rush to Costco because we were already running late for the dinner we were suposed to have at our house. We got Costco's ready made chicken, and a few other things for me to make to go with the chicken. I made mash potatoes, and brocoli and so bread with jam to go with it. It was really yummy.

So we had Jack, a less active Michael worked with on his mission and is still trying to work with him now that we are back in Taiwan, and 3 of my students for the Jaeha School, the private school I teach at Mon-Fri. We put on an english movie for my students, Enchanted, and the loved it. They all loved the food. Then Michael and I had attempted to make a cake in the rice cooker again but had to leave it while we ran and did all of our arrands. Needless to say while frosting it we found out it was just a little too moist and it was a DISASTER!!!!!! It will be a cake to remember! LOL
Over all this Christmas will be a Christmas we will never forget!!!

Christmas Eve with the Yang Family

Christmas eve we had a nice dinner with the Yang family! They are the ones letting us stay in their upstairs studio apartment. They had Brother Yang's Dad come and another sister from the church. I made a tuna noodle cassarole that they loved. They ate all of it! Sister Yang made the "sushi" thing but not with raw fish. It was really good it was with tofu on the outside and ride with some kind of sauce in it and some seeds on the top. It was really good. So, I DO like that kind of "sushi". LOL We had a lot of other dishes also, like a fruit with lettus and rasin salad. I didn't try that, but it looked really good.

From Left to right: Sister Yang, Brother Yang's Dad, Brother Yang, and the other sister, Michael and Sunny, their daughter. Super Cute girl. She loves coming up and hanging out with us and watching TV and Playing the video game every once and a while. She loves trying all the different foods that I cook too. (LOL poor girl is in for it today. Nacho hamburger helper!)
Everyone with me this time.
All and All we had a really fun time!

Good-bye Class

This is our night class on the last day of school. The school gave them cute games that they had us give to them one by one. They are the cutest kids ever!!! We had a lot of fun teaching this class. We are going to miss them.
