I bought this jewelry making kit for my nieces and they all had a blast making bracelets, rings, necklaces and even keychains and name tags for their bags.

great fun cousin bonding time!

My brother actually helped them make the jewelries since some of them can't spell yet.

I love how colorful they are!

Ykaie was scared at first to have her picture taken with the dinosaurs.

Life like dinosaur sculptures look really cool!

They were screaming when they saw the high resolution copy of this picture. They both thought the dinosaur was after them lol!

We found a great spot to chillax!

Street Food in Shenzhen, China

It was almost 12 midnight we were street food hunting when something interesting caught our eyes. We happened to pass by this street vendor in Shenzhen selling soup where every ingredient was skewered on a stick. (even vegetables!)

We have to select what to put in our soup. There was a wide variety of ingredients to choose from.

seaweeds, mushrooms, noodles, fishballs, meats, sausages etc.


Vendor cooking our chosen ingredients in a boiling pot of broth.

We only bought a bowl of soup that we all shared as we were not sure of the taste.

The soup was surprisingly delicious!

10:00 in the morning we were all ready to go back home! We wore our m&m T-shirts.

We turned our room into a photo studio and took some wacky shots.

We all enjoyed our brief stay in Shenzhen, China! Hope we can all travel together again to a different country in the near future.

Window of The World- Shenzhen, China

Window of the World is a theme park that has about 130 miniature reproductions of some of the most famous tourist attractions in the world. We were only given 3 hours by the tour guide to explore the place. It was 3:00 in the afternoon we had to take a break and rest for a few times coz it was painstakingly hot! I actually enjoyed the place quite a lot though we were not able to see all the famous landmarks due to lack of time. I hope one day I can come back again without time pressure so I'll be able to see and enjoy everything this place has to offer.

Here are some of our pictures.

My niece

Shwedagon Pagoda, Myanmar

Taj Mahal, India
