Okay, I’ve delayed this post for wayyyyyy too long. Blame manga, hanging out with friends, AMV making, and laziness…

But now let me crawl out of my grave and…recap my East Coast trip.

Well, it was more like an Ivy League university tour…I went to see Harvard, Yale, Columbia, UPenn, and Princeton…mainly for my younger sister who is entering high school in the fall (waayyy early for it, but whatever). I do love the humid, prone-to-rain East Coast summer weather a lot more than the raging dry heat of sun-kissed southern California. And their universities have beautiful buildings…old English style or Greek temple-inspired architecture totally owns our Spanish blocks of brick.

Highlights of the trip:
– meeting up with my school friend (who lives in NYC) for dinner
– watching the musical Phantom of the Opera. Howard McGillin was AMAZING as the Phantom. I was more used to a clearer, less operatic voice for Christine since I listened to the Sarah Brightman and Emmy Rossum renditions a lot, but the actress who played her onstage was wonderful as well
– going on a Segway tour in Washington, DC. Those things are wicked fun and I really hope to own one someday…
– family rafting trip at Lehigh River in Pennsylvania. I was disappointed it wasn’t actually a real whitewater rafting trip, but the water wars with the other families’ boats made it totally worth it :) (I steered while my sis dumped buckets on other kids…pity we didn’t rent a water gun)

And the real reason you probably read the post…the Vienna Teng concert report! Yes, it’s been over a month but HELL YES I can remember how wonderful it was.
