Hey guys. Before I make this blog post for August 12th to 16th, 2018, I wanted to announce that the Vietnam Trip 2018 video slideshow will have the official release date on September 1st, 2018. I know you've guys been waiting for it. So yeah. Just want to let you know and I know you've been waiting for it because September 4th, 2018 is when I start college at EVC (Evergreen Valley College in San Jose, CA). My schedule will be a lot busier because college is a new chapter for me to embrace and face. Let's start off this blog post.
8/12/2018: Usual Sunday.
In the morning, went to church at 7 am. Breakfast is at 8:30 am , had coffee and 2 hash browns at McDonald's. So after that, I went to work out at my uncle's in Hollister, CA. Which is like a 45 minute drive depends on the route/direction you go. At 9:30 am, had three meetings, after that at 12:30 pm, went to lunch. Had garlic noodles with beef mixed with vegetables aka in Vietnamese (Bo Luc Lac voi Nui Sao Toi) with an black iced coffee. The coffee is very strong. True fact: One Vietnamese black iced coffee can last you a day. Why? It's strong in caffeine. Anyways after that, got home, took a shower, relax, and went to hang out with my friends at Eastridge Mall. Picked up my Ultra Instinct Goku Funko Pop that I pre-order at the end of July. I'm hoping to get that sign by Sean Schemmel at ToyXpo in Santa Clara, CA on August 25th, 2018. Spend some time with my friends by going out, shopping.
8/13/2018: Normal Day and a situation to deal with
So it's just a normal day for me. Like run for 2 hours. Breakfast is went to a Vietnamese Cafe with a friend and had 2 Vietnamese Iced Black Coffee and took some vitamins. Got back home editing. Lunch: Made some gyros and egg rolls with my mom and my 2 aunts. Dinner: Greek Salad with Leftover Gyros. The day was going good until I found breaking news. My cousin in Seattle, got a heart attack and got sent to the hospital. I was shocked, I announced on my Instagram Stories that I will not appear on the first day of school for Mt Pleasant High School on August 14th, 2018 because that's why due to that family problem. So, I went down to see my cousin on the morning of the 14th with my mom. It was sad that he's in the hospital.
8/14/2018: Family Problem and babysitting in Seattle, Washington.
I got to San Jose International Airport at 6 in the morning. The flight took me 2 hours due to Delta. I got to the hospital at 9:00 am. Visited my cousin with my mom. It was sad at first but the doctor explained the situation and the doctor knows that about 4 to 9 days because my cousin had a mild heart attack. So without him in the house, my mom just mostly cares for my cousin at the hospital and while my cousin in law and I look after my niece along with my aunt that both of them came down from Vietnam to Seattle. Spent some time with them and babysitting.
Slept with the baby in my room at my cousin's place. I went for a run for like half hour because I was afraid the baby needed me. The baby's name was Gina. She was born on September 10th, 2017. Right before the 9/11 anniversary. So most of the day looking for her, caring, feeding her, watching her and care for her hygiene and keep her company. Later in the evening, went out to eat at MonSoon Seattle. As appetizers, my mom, aunt, cousin in law and I had papaya salad, veggie egg rolls, pan seared diver scallops, a cooked wild boar, pork chops, green beans, crispy tofu, and jasmine rice. Lot of food but to share with family. I feed the baby with baby food.
Most of my day just babysitting until I have to go to the airport at 1:30 pm and got back at 4 pm, went to Super Taqueria for tacos. Bought my parents and my sister food and drinks. Spent my evening watching a movie an a show. Like Grown Ups 2 and Big Bang Theory.
