Summer/Fall 2023

This post is long overdue, but better late than never right? I've been barely keeping up with all my trip reports and my quarterly update is slowly becoming a bi-annual update. Anyway, here are some photos and videos of we've been up to from May - Nov 2023.

May 29 (Mon): I was back in the US for 2 weeks after returning from Malaysia and before I left for India so we spent Memorial Day holiday with the family and SIL's place.

Aug 12 (Sat): Celebrated hubby and my birthdays with the family at Viet Hoang and went for bowling after.

Aug 13 (Sun): Missed out celebrating grandma's birthday in Malaysia but glad to see the family gather to celebrate it.

Oct 7-8 (Sat-Sun): Took a road trip to Atlanta over the weekend and visited Georgia Aquarium with SIL, BIL, and nephew.

After visiting the aquarium, hubby and I had lunch at Grindhouse Killer Burger, window shopped at IKEA, bought Asian groceries at Super H Mart, had dinner at Northern China Eatery, and spent the night at Holiday Inn Express Atlanta Clairmont to use up a free night that was expiring soon.

Nov 11 (Sat): Celebrated Thanksgiving with the family and SIL and BIL's house.

Sept 14 - Oct 16: Hubby bought the NASA Apollo Saturn V lego and completed it after working on and off for about a month.

Aug 7 (Mon): Received this new 'free' luggage as a replacement for my damaged bag after returning from Malaysia.

May 24, Sept 30 & Oct 9: Almost 'free' tech stuffs from work. My phone contract was up so it was a good timing to switch carrier and paid only $199 for the iPhone 15 Pro Max. :) My work laptop was also up for replacement but I am not a fan of the Microsoft Surface at all so I'm gonna hang on to my old HP laptop until they force me to change :P

Aug 25-30: Spent a good amount of $$ on exterior home improvement this summer. Removed 3 trees from our backyard for $3,200, and replaced our fence for $3,400.

Also had fun playing with with LED lights for our office / game room.
