XX

Hmm, I’m wondering where I should begin this blog. Perhaps I should start off by saying that I did have a vlog in the pipelines answering some of the questions you guys asked but it’s still in editing mode and I don’t know whether I’m happy enough to actually post it on YouTube. We’ll see. I should probably actually start with my birthday.

As you guys should know, and if you didn’t shame on you (joke), I turned 20 last Tuesday. That’s right. 20. Twenty. XX. 10+10. I have officially lived two decades. That sounds so much older than it actually does, but man. I can’t believe I’m no longer a teenager 🙁 I don’t feel any different but I never really have when it’s my birthday. I mean, I still look pretty much the same as I did when I was 14. Ha. My Lola* always phones me up on my birthday and asks me how I feel and I’m just like, “The same, really.” I don’t know – are you meant to feel like a big difference when you turn a year older? I feel like if you’re gonna feel a big difference it’s not gonna be just because you turned a year older but rather when something life changing has happened in your life.

Anyway, moving on. If you saw my last post, I went to Madame Tussauds. If you don’t know what that is, it’s basically a museum of wax figures of celebrities. It’s pretty awesome and some of the figures look so lifelike! Except, Zac Efron. He looked really creepy. They also had a Marvel Super Heroes 4D Experience which AMAZING. Everybody knows how much I love Marvel and that was the best part of the whole Madame Tussauds day. The whole experience had 3D and special effects, so like you felt Wolverine’s claws in the back of your seat when he swiped at the screen or Spiderman’s web thingy and water when there were huge splashes on the screen. Plus the 3D was AMAZING. Usually, I find 3D kind of sh*t especially in films when it’s not needed but this one was so good and I actually batted away some stuff from my face even though I knew that it actually wasn’t flying at me. Haha.

My family and I went to a Greek restaurant for dinner which was just near the museum. The food there was so nice, and you kind of order loads of plates because they come in small portions so you can eat family style and just share everything. It was so cool. We happened to end up on Baker Street and I got my picture outside 221B but my mum cut out the bit that says 221B, so the whole picture was kind of redundant. I’m going back again, though, to get my picture taken and there’s a Sherlock Holmes museum next door so I definitely have to check that out.

Friday night was just one night of crazy. I think I may have tweeted Nancy during that time, but I’m not sure. I’m not entirely sure what happened that night either because after ending up outside I remember nothing. Apparently I was drunk as a skunk and crying all over the place. Mutay had to take me home. Seriously, I think that night was one of the worst blackouts I’ve ever experienced. I hear what I did that night, and I remember absolutely nothing. Apparently I fell asleep on some woman with my mouth open and Mutay had to shout to wake up and I kind of scuttled away. The bus driver was laughing at me. Man. I won’t lie, though – the beginning part of the night that I do remember I did have fun.

Mutay and I went to dinner at a Pan-Asian restaurant called Aquum. The food was delicious. The cocktails were delicious. We hit some bar called Belgo and met Mutay’s friend and… that’s when the trouble started.

I think Mutay probably has more of an insight of what happened that night, so you’ll have to head over to her blog because… girl. I don’t even know.

    Well, at least someone thinks its cute that my mother folds my undies. That’s pretty cool that you’re back from CHINA. Always wanted to go there. In India, the toilets are much the same, simply holes in the ground. I’ve learned to just carry toilet paper everywhere I go now.

    Congratulations on your graduation from the title of “Teenager”. You’ve been promoted to.. not.. teenager. I never feel any different when I turn a year old either. I absolutely adore Madame Tussauds. I went there when we visited New York and my mind was totally blown by the accuracy of those wax-figures. Very easy to trick folks into thinking you met the real celebs.

    Lmfao. I read about your drunkenness on Mutay’s blog. Had quite the laugh. Glad to hear you had a nice time. 🙂 Wining and dining the night away. Or in your case, cocktailing. Even better, I say.

    Happy belated birthday, Chynna! Ahh! Last Tuesday was such a busy day for me ☹. Regardless, I do wish you a blessing birthday and a healthy 20th celebration. Since you’re 20 now, you can finally say you beat teen pregnancy! It’s a big thing if you live in Los Angeles. If you look the same as you did when you were 14, you’re on the right track. I look a bit darker than I did when I was 14… And I had that middle school look when I was 14 too! D:
    It looks like you had fun going to Madame Tussauds. Wax figure celebrities… I always thought Zac Efron was cute, except he had times when he looked like a total creeper. It looks like you had fun with the Marvel section of the museum!
    I’m glad you had a fun dinner with your family. Sometimes, I wonder why restaurants serve their food in small portions. I suppose that is how business is. Friday… Is that when I called you a legit London lady? 😛 You had your portion of fun being drunk. Oh, the beauty of public intoxication. ALCOHOL RULES. Okay, I shouldn’t even say that. But whatever! You had fun and that’s all it matters. You’re lucky to have an amazing friend like Mutay! 😀

    Thank you for your awesome wishes ☺! Take care (:

    I never feel older when my birthday comes. Is still have a couple months until I turn 20. I thought that would be the age in which I feel something different, but after your account, maybe then too, will be just another day.

    Madam Tussaud’s sounds AMAZING! I would love to go to a place like that of what you described. I don’t think such places exist around here though, I could be wrong. All of my movie 3D experiences have been piss-poor, but Madam Tussaud’s gives me hope.

    I read Mutay’s blog about your night. Even though you forgot most of it, it sounds EPIC! Just be careful and also grateful that Mutay was there to look after you. Blackouts can be dangerous.

    happy belated birthday! oh man, tell me about it! i’m turning 21 next month and i’m not looking forward to it =_= with age comes more responsibility. oh joy!
    ooo wax museum! yea some of the figures look really real but some just fail, haha! i love posing ridiculously next to them! HAHaha oh man, blackouts are nottt fun! at least you didn’t have a hangover. those suck!

    Hahah, sounds like a crazy night. Full of fun and alchy. 😛
    When I turned twenty last year, I was so depressed. Ugh. I couldn’t believe I was entering my third decade, so I understand what you mean! I’m turning 21 soon, and while that does mean I’ll be able to get alchy legally, I’m freaking out as well.
    And woah, that wax museum sounds so cool! Though I’m always slightly unnerved by those figures.

    I don’t think we ever “feel” anything when we age. The process of change is so minimal, but before you know it, we’re like in our 60s or 80s… oh dear. I’ve never heard of a Sherlock Holmes museum, that must be really cool to look forward to 😀

    20 is old! But you do look young, like me, i’m 18 but people think i’m just starting high school. Which is scary because i’m starting uni I hope people don’t think my mum or dad go uni and that’s the reason i’m in halls haha! 😛

    I’d love to go to Madame Tussauds, but I haven’t. lol.

    Greek restaurant sounds scary! I hate trying new foods! ;3

    Michael. 🙂

    I’ve never actually bought anything in the Bodyshop… and they just closed the one in the mall. 🙁
    Get the “sex bomb” bath bomb! I’ve been recommending it to people everywhere haha.

    I’ve always wanted to go to a wax museum! 😮

    I asked her to put up the video of you guys… I think you were super drunk in the video hahaha. Oh well, we’ll just have to see. 😉
