Hi, You Have Reached...

weather: cloudy
outside: 8.0°C
mood: cheerful
... the Bride of the First House.

I will be [mostly] away from this journal [maybe] on vacation to Taiwan and South Africa from Thursday, November 10, 2005 to Sunday, November 27, 2005.

I may or may not be posting or checking e-mail while I'm gone depending on who has an unsecured wireless connection I can hork or what web café rates look like wherever I go. But I wouldn't count on it.

If this is an issue regarding weddingplans, the lovely easter will be most happy to help you in my absence. (Thanks, Daae!) =)

Otherwise, please leave me a message at the link and I'll get back to you as soon as I am able.

Thank you.

— The Bride.

Thanks! =)

South Africa? That's a long way from both here and Taiwan! Whereabouts are you going in South Africa?

We'll be in Cape Town and Durbanville. =) The Husband's cousin is getting married there and we all invited ourselves along. We have an 8 hour layover in Singapore XD

Cape Town is very nice this time of year. Totally different story in winter though. It gets very windy. I've never been but I hear stories from my parents. They used to live in Jo'burg.

Be careful while you're there, especially at night. If you plan on hitting the beach, watch out for sharks.

Huh, thanks for the warning. We're sticking with the tour group anyway (it's a custom tour package just for us =), so we're not going to be straying far.

Almost forgot to wish you a safe and happy trip! Congrats! :)
Nov. 10th, 2005 02:45 am (UTC)
Haha! I do that too. That's how we Chinese show we care, we admonish each other to be careful, watch for this, be alert for that XD

Thanks =D

Re: Have a nice holiday!
That's the nicest time to go, it's not too hot in the winter =)
Nov. 11th, 2005 04:28 am (UTC)
Yep yep.
Right now it's still hot. Whew. We're going on a junk trip this Sunday (that's how hot the weather still is here!)

Have a fun trip! I want a card too =P

Nov. 11th, 2005 04:27 am (UTC)
Hm... *digs through User Info* Singaporean, eh?

Well, my extended family is in Taiwan (relatives of my parents), so I used to go there twice a year.

Taiwan's good for... hm... hot springs (cold ones too)... night markets (yummy food)... Chinese bookstores... uh... computer products. S'bout it!

Re: Ahh!

Nov. 10th, 2005 02:29 am (UTC)
HAve a good (and safe!) trip! :)

Thank you =)

Have a great time, a safe trip, and (my fave travel wish) "may your luggage enjoy the same destination you do". :)

Send me a postcard from South Africa, and if you can't find the time to mail it there then feel free to give me a holler and I'll come get it once you're back. I don't have a postcard from S.A. yet. :D
Nov. 10th, 2005 02:41 am (UTC)
S'anks =)

And I will definitely postcard you (or something equally as interesting). =)

Oh, and because I am the biggest dolt alive, do you have B'nice & Gary's new address handy? Can you e-mail that to me please? =} Thanks.
Nov. 10th, 2005 02:56 am (UTC)
Have fun, take lots of pics!. Ironic though, I'm taking exactly the same time off of work too.
Nov. 10th, 2005 03:09 am (UTC)
Heh, what a coinky-dink =)

Thanks =)
Nov. 10th, 2005 03:32 am (UTC)
A safe and happy trip. <3
Nov. 10th, 2005 03:32 am (UTC)
Have a safe and fun trip! :)
Nov. 10th, 2005 03:37 am (UTC)
Have a safe trip! Enjoy yourselves and make lots of great memories. :)
Nov. 10th, 2005 03:45 am (UTC)
I'll miss your posts. Be safe! And whenyou return I'll attempt to persuade you to publish any pictures of your travels!
Nov. 10th, 2005 09:28 am (UTC)
Oh wow! I hope you have a wonderful trip. Everyone in my family is a world traveler, I havn't been anywhere yet (aside from Canada) I live in Hawaii. This is a pretty cultural diverse place... a VERY cultural diverse place. And there is harmony between all ethnic groups, it's a wonderful place. I do not see race or color living here what so ever. I am glad to have that kind of experience. But I do see culture, and I admire all the different traditions practiced and passed down here. The Chinese new year is a huge event here, and everyone participates. Also Girl's and Boy's day, a japanese holliday, it's funky and wonderful seeing how all of us get along and participate with each other.

Anyway! My grandfather has been to both of those places, my cousin lived in Taiwan for about two years, so I've heard a lot about them. Heh! I wish I was going! I know I'll be on the world scene soon, though. :)

Happy traveling!

that's a lot of travelling for only 17 days! Have a good and safe trip, I hope you have lots of fun!
Nov. 11th, 2005 08:13 pm (UTC)
HAve a great time!!! (Can I come, too?) ;)
