1 grandmother, 3 aunts, 3 cousins. All girls.

           The day has finally come.... i'm actually leaving the country for my very first time. In 9 hours i'll be on a plane flying to the motherland, a place so close to my family yet so far from America: China. I'll be taking a 3 week vacation with my grandmother, 3 aunts, and 2 of my cousins to Shanghai, Beijing, Guangzhou, and Hong Kong.
           It hasn't even begun yet but it's been so hectic. Right now we're packing multiple luggages of ginseng for gifts (apparently America produces one of the finest ginseng), folding 19 days worth of clothes, and weighing these bags on a bathroom scale. Meanwhile, there is a bunch of yelling and screaming and hollering.You ask me why? I have no clue...that's just how my Cantonese family apparently converse... even about the simplest things. It's pretty amusing but I really hope we'll be able to keep the decibels low in the airplane.

           Soon enough i'll be here..after the 19 hour flight...and i'll definitely blog about my adventures :)
