Tina's Birthday Party Had Great Food As Usual

Mood: Proud
Playing: The Ghost of You-My Chemical Romance
Today I finally took my fitness tests! I showed up at school 2 hours before school started and I hopefully passed all my tests. I did 10 push-ups, 25 crunches, trunk lift, and I ran a mile in 9:50! The mile was pretty good for me, but for the crunches and push-ups, I know I could have done more, but the coaches told me to stop. Also, on my flexibility test I did really good on it. My score was 16, when most people scored 10-12. When I first showed up, I was freaking out because there were over 30 guys there and I was the only girl! Lucky for me, quite a few girls showed up and I actually found one to be friends with. I wish I remembered her name, so I could thank her for really pushing me to keep on running the mile! Haha, most of you don't want to hear about my athletic achievements, no matter how low they are! I want to share with you Tina's birthday party! It was so much fun and we did some pretty unusual stuff!
She has two pet turtles and I love them. Vivian and I just watched them for the longest time. I think Tina and her her brother, Kent, named them Kame-Kun and Kame-Chan. Basically, he turtle and she turtle!
Tina, Hyeajoon, Maggie, Tiffany, Vivian, Kimmie, Kent, and I all helped cook up our dinners and some food for a game we played. What you do is make a whole bunch of one type of food and put something nasty, like wasabi, in one of them. Then everyone sits in a circle and grabs one. You have no idea, who got the nasty one, until everyone bites into their's! So much fun to play and to prepare! Here you can see, Hyeajoon chopping up cabbage for our dumplings!
Our dumplings were 3 parts cabbage and 1 part pork. Obviously, we had too much cabbage, but it was still tasty! No one wanted to mix the meat and cabbage, so they forced me to do it! What wimps! (Just kidding!) With the leftover meat, we made meatballs. The bad dumplings had wasabi in them and the bad meatballs had garlic in them, but I personally love garlic!
The best tasting thing we made were these puff pastry things. The good ones had chocolate surrounded by whipped cream and the bad ones had wasabi instead of chocolate. You should've seen Kimmie and Maggie's faces, when they bit into their's!
Tiffany's dad made Tina a birthday cake/pie because Tiffany and Maggie were supposed to make it, but they were too busy. It was so tasty. They called it a cake, but it tasted more like a pie to me. Almost like an almond pie. It was so good.
We did other things other than eat. We played badminton, which I'm really bad at, so Tiffany taught me how to serve and Kent played against me. Then we played tennis, so Kent taught Tiffany, Kimmie, Maggie, and me how to play. Tina already knew how, so she crushed us with her pro skills. I really like playing tennis! It's so much fun and some of my friends have offered to teach me. I hope Andrew and Sagiv will help me learn!
Have you ever tried something out and realized you love it?

  8. Kaizokumousy-My friends and I were thinking as cosplaying as the characters from Kuroshitsuji, but all of us don't feel like making our own costumes or wig buying...;~; We're so lazy sometimes!
