Maine, Vermont, New Hampshere!! =)

One of the coolest roadtrips I've been to, and this time is with the WHOLE chestnutties family!~ ^_^ all six of us rented a nice SUV n drove 10hrs to Maine! haha.. I'm so glad i went! was almost deciding not to go due to budget constraints =X *in bliss for making the right choice!*

Tha fall season is seriously one of the most beautiful time of the year! The scenery is simply breathtaking! i've never laid eyes on anything more beautiful than this, makes me wanna sigh happily and hug my bf (oops.. hehe~ but sad he not with me T_T)

One of the places we visited during the trip was the famous Ben & Jerry's Factory! B&J originated from Vermont, started up by 2 school dropouts or something haha.. Really love their ice cream, one of the yummiest ice cream i've tasted haha..

B&J factory tour! ^_^

Lelong lelong!! Cutie up for grabs!! (Adrian pls pay me advertising fee yar? =p)

beautiful snow covered white mountain!

When we saw the white mountain, we were all so excited. At first Pacey thought that it's called white mountains because the mountain is filled with trees that have white barks, which we saw a lot along our way.. But no!! it was white because of the SNOW! :D

Although it is only Fall now, Maine and Vermont is already snowing!! It's mainly because Maine/Vermont are further up north of US. While we were driving up to Vermont from Maine, it started snowing and covered the ground with pretty white snow ^_^ but the drawback was that it was soooo cold!! >.<

Adrian taking a pic of law's butt?

hmmm... wadcha doin? =X

Law becoming immortal? o.O

haha.. along the way we took too many stupid photos.. but i guess it's nice to see them n laugh, all the memorable roadtrips the chesnutties had together :)

and of course, we took lotsa pretty pictures too! see how chio me n char look? =p

MY LOBSTER~~~ *slurp~*

the famous dishes in Maine!! LOBSTERS!!! i had lobsters for 2 meals consecutively!!! muahahahaha... thx guys for letting the chiobus take the lobsters at Jordon Pond House :) other famous dishes were blueberries and popovers. Popovers are actually these puffs that are made from dough expanding at sudden extreme high heat. they are crispy on the outside and fluffy n soft on the inside.. they are extremely delicious with raspberry jam, butter or clam chowder ^_^ *yummy~~*

Many other place we visited were the Acadia National Parks, the Cadellac Mountains where the most breathtaking scenic pictures were taken, Santa's Village, and the Cider factory (where apples are made into cider lol.. free cider juices were given in the factory. the cider juice was sooooo tasty~~ mmmm..) oh, i actually also wanna mention about the wind at the Cadellac mountains.. it was sooo big that I could have been blown off the cliff!! lol..

I didn't know Jay Chou was in this kind of kungfu movie!! lol.. he looks SO KEWL~
I always love kungfu movies, the heros are so SHUAI4!!! =p

你的泪光 柔弱中带伤 惨白的月弯弯 勾住过往
夜太漫长 凝结成了霜 是谁在阁楼上 冰冷的绝望
雨轻轻弹 朱红色的窗 我一生在纸上 被风吹乱
梦在远方 化成一缕香 随风飘散 你的模样

菊花残 满地伤 你的笑容已泛黄 花落人断肠 我心事 静静淌
北风乱 夜未央 你的影子剪不断 徒留我孤单 在湖面成双

花 已向晚 飘落了灿烂 凋谢的世道上 命运不堪
愁莫渡江 秋心拆两半 怕你上不了岸 一辈子摇晃
谁的江山 马蹄声狂乱 我一身的戎装 呼啸沧桑
天微微亮 你轻声地叹 一夜惆怅 如此委婉

菊花残 满地伤 你的笑容已泛黄 花落人断肠 我心事 静静淌
北风乱 夜未央 你的影子剪不断 徒留我孤单 在湖面成双

so romantic~ *gleams*

I've been listening to loads of Jay Chou songs recently.. i really love his songs. i was never a music person, not that i don't like music, but because i can never multi-task haha.. so i can't do anything else if i'm listening to music =p
come to think of it, i didn't even know who jay chou was when i first entered uni..

looking back, i think i've grown so much since i stepped into NUS. my life had been turned upside down so many times; in a short span of 1 year after entering uni, i have made many life changing decisions, so major that if i had just made a slightly different decision, i would not be where i am now. i believe that all the mistakes i made were critical in bringing me to where i am now, and i'm happy with where i am now.

and somehow jay chou became interwined in our lives.. always seemed so apt.. so capable of eliciting emotions.. tsk tsk.. just this 1 stupid song had caused so much.. haiz.. i think no 1 else can ever understand huh? (for once i feel i can be more cheem (deep) than others >.< but it makes us so much stronger.. i hope =X)

*no regrets! ^_^*

yes dear, jay chou will always be part of our lives yar? (both our bfs? hehe..) decided not to put up the remix u sent me though.. =X lol.. love u dear..
