Growing Feet

Guess which one is my foot and which one is mom.  Yes, my feet is almost as big as my mom's feet.  But we still can't share shoes.  I tried her shoes but it is still very loose for me.  She can't wear mine because it is slightly too tight for her.  Soon ... soon we will be sharing shoes.

Lacoste Jacket Size 12

Mom got me a new Lacoste jacket while shopping at the Desert Hill Outlet Mall at Palm Springs.  She said it was a good deal.  Original price of the jacket is $110 and it was discounted at 60%, came out to about $47.50, tax included.  The only one left is a size 12. 

I think it is very fancy and I look smart wearing it.  When we got home, mom said may be she can wear it once I outgrown it.  So here a picture of me and her wearing the same jacket.

The only problem is she cannot zip up the jacket because her hip is too big.  She can still wear it without zipping up.

Sunday Lunch at Benihana Newport Beach

Today is Easter Sunday.  We couldn't decide where to have lunch.  Mom actually drove to Crab Cooker at Tustin but it was closed because all the employees are at home spending Easter with their family. 

Then I casually mentioned about Benihana.  We had wanted to visit that restaurant since I watched the movie "Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day".  Last Sunday, we almost went to the Torrance's branch but at the last minute we changed to Soup Plantation which is located right next to the Benihana in Torrance.

So mom drove us to the Benihana at Newport Beach. 

When we parked the car and walked into the restaurant, it was almost 11:50am. There was a crowd waiting. Mom asked for the teppan table, and were told to wait for 20 minutes.

After about 10 minutes, most guests had already went in.  We were there with another 2 guys waiting.  Then another group of 3 people walked in.  Right after that, we were seated together around the teppan grill, a total of 7 people surrounding the grill. 

Our server took our ordered and later the chef returned with a cart with all of our raw ingredients to be cooked in front of us.  Our chef's name is Adrian. 


This is the Kid's Menu. I ordered the Chicken and Shrimps combo with fried rice (additional $3.25).

Dad ordered the seared Ahi Tuna set.  Mom ordered the Duet Lunch set with Beef Julienne and Scallops.

Primary Grade's Pictures

My mom posting these pictures because she said I look so mature in this year spring's picture compared to the last few years. I look more grown up now. What do you think?

2015 Meadow Park Jog-a-thon

This morning we had our yearly Jog-a-thon fund raising event. Overall, I have collected only $50.  But it should be good enough. 

The Jog-a-thon was after our recess, from 10:45am to 11:15am. First we changed into our jog-a-thon T-shirt while in class. Then we started to get ready, put on sunscreen, put on hats or visor, get a drink of water before the start. Then we headed out to the field.

It was definitely a very hot and windy day.  I believe the temperature reached almost 100 degrees.  There were a lot of kids out in the field by the time we joined the rest of the lower elementary students.  At the field, we did some warm ups.

We are ready to start the jog-a-thon

Waiting for count down to start

Here we go!  I blasted off!

I was so tired from the laps. 

By the end of 20 minutes, I ran, walked and jogged only 9 laps.  Then we left the field and headed to the lunch tables to have our water and popsicles while resting and talking to friends.

Me and Kevin

We went back to our classroom 20 minutes before lunch break.  It was so nice to be inside the building with the air-conditioning blowing.  We didn't do anymore study, just rested while waiting for the lunch bell to ring.

2015 Wall Of Fame

I am on our school Wall of Fame!!  Look for me and find me in the picture below!

If you are interested, try to look for me again in my 2014 Wall of Fame post. 

My Desk

Here is a before and after picture of my desk.  I am a very messy kid. 

My mom is the one whom helps me organize the table when it gets out of control. 

Do you see the white mat on my table?  My mom layered it down.  It is made out of the back of two pages of the old Nijiya calendar.  She used cello tape to tape it down to the table.  She put this down as a protection to the table because she didn't want me to scribble on the table or scratched it as the paint can chip off easily from the table top.

I also use my desk for eating breakfast in the morning, thus I have the world map table mat on it.

No School Friday

Today has no school.  It is the district-wide staff developmental day.  I got to sleep in today until almost 8:30am.  Didn't do much except we went to watch the 1:30pm show of the "Big Hero 6" at the Woodbridge Starplex Theater.  We dined out for dinner and I had the curry plate at Misasa at Mitzuwa food court. 

Tonight, dad is not home because he went to stay a night at my grandma's house.  I didn't go because I have Chinese class tomorrow morning.
