My Thanksgiving Adventure

So after a eventful day of travel and activities, I am finally in Auburn and resting in my room and on my bed. Ah~~~ it is good to be home!!! So let’s recap.

My day started at 2:30 when I woke up trying to get book on an earlier flight of 6:10 am to ATL by using the same day standby. After calling in 10 minutes early and then recall them 20 minutes late, I finally got my 6:10 flight confirmed. The road to the airport parking was not as bad as I thought. I was able to get to the parking deck pretty quickly. Once I checked in, it look me a while to get through airport security. But with my disappointment, I did not get close and personal with a TSA agent. Pretty much all the SeaTac Airport advance imagining machines were off. When I got to the gate, my upgraded ticket was already waiting for me. (oh I love airline status).

The flight was very uneventful at first, the free gogo onboard internet was nice. Thanks Google Chrome!!! When we finally got to ATL, we started to land and just before landing the airplane pulled up and started to increase power and pulling away. The captain then came on over the speaker stating that there was an alarm on one of the landing gears and we are going to circle around and try again. Ok, I was a bit nervous, but not really that nervous. Then just before the second approach and landing the captain says that the landing gears are down, but the door did not come back up because of the hydraulics so we maybe seeing sparks when we land. But he added, everything should be ok. Now I was a bit nervous. However, we landed successfully and immediately pull to a taxi land and stopped. We are waiting for the ground crew to verify that the landing gears are secure before moving the plane to the gate, this will prevent the airplane from collapsing on a bad landing gear.

After picking up my rental car, (and yes Hertz Gold is super awesome, no waiting and just pickup and go!!! Best of all no harassment from sells people like at Enterprise) I was on a hunt for some lunch, in particular Chick-fil-a. After 3 exits of finding all fast food restaurants are closed, I realized that yes, today is Thanksgiving. Doh!

After 3 hours of driving, I made it to Montgomery, Alabama and enjoyed my wonderful Thanksgiving lunch and then Dinner hotpot.

More adventures to come tomorrow with the Auburn vs Alabama Game!!!! WAR EAGLE!!!

happy black Friday 😉

This Thanksgiving is the first time that we have having Thanksgiving outside of Auburn. It was pretty good. So this is the first year we are having our annual family thanksgiving dinner at my place. Yep .. I was hosting our family thanksgiving dinner. But as previous years, we have a turkey, baked napa, and some other dishes. My little sister contributed her cajun rice, my dad contributed some sashimi and I contributed some potato salad.

This year, I invited my friends in Seattle that need a place to go for Thanksgiving. I like to share the warmth of a Thanksgiving dinner with all my friends 🙂 I think it is wonderful. It was a happy time!!! I really like it. All and all the thanksgiving dinner was a wonderful success!!! It is good to spend time with friend and family.

so once again… I want to thank everyone for coming … and I hope everyone had a great time enjoyed all the good food. I am very thankful for my wonderful family and I am very thankful for all my friends.

Once again… I am wishing everyone a safe and happy thanksgiving and see you at the Christmas party 😉

Happy Thanksgiving 2008

Oh my gosh… I can’t believe it is already end of November and yet there are still so many things to do. So right now I am sitting in the Seatac airport waiting for my parent’s flight. I am so thankful that my Mom and Dad are coming over to my place for thanksgiving this year. We are having a Chen’s family dinner here in Seattle. I guess this would be the closest I would get to a Thanksgiving dinner of my own in my own place for a while…. Sigh…

So many things are going on and I sometimes I feel so overwhelmed …

oh… doh … got to run… write more later…
