Yay, another dynasty wedding, good luck.  I love having weddings and seeing how other people do weddings. :)
Is it true that cannibals don't eat clowns because they taste funny?

China Trip #1: Mid-Week 21

Travelers: Fhore and Ernesto. A "figure out where you want your life to take you" trip, of sorts. Fhore is in search of supermaxing the Martial Arts skill while Ernesto came along for the fun of it all. He has Wunn's Collection Helper and enough athletic skill points to jog around the countryside all day, and maybe swing a pic-axe.

Length of Stay: 6 days courtesy of Fhore's unique LTR - Prepared Traveler.

Flight Leaves: Right now!

~

Ernesto and I land safely in China and catch a shuttle to the hotel. We decide to start our trip off right!



I check in with the Adventure Board and head off in search of the yellow circle on my China map. With my 3 skills points in MA from the book Great-Grandpa Wunn picked up at the Consignment Shop ages ago, which I read after school, I'm so up for the challenge of my first 2 sparring matches. Bring it on!



Julianne Lu makes a great spar partner and is up for my required two go-rounds. That done we hang out and talk. I learn so much in that one afternoon about Chinese Sim culture and her neighbours. We become best friends!

Ernesto, not quite happy just following me around all day, fiddles with Wunn's Collection Helper and heads out for a jog through the countryside in search of gems and metals for Wunn's growing pocket collection.



That face is the same one he had as a teen but those muscles, hmmmm, those are new. And yummy! *Sigh* I wish he would follow me around all day just so I could look at that any time I want to! He did promise to meet up with me at the Academy later today.

He finds an abandoned barn out somewhere and empties the chests he finds under the stack of hay bales.



One day, Ernesto wakes up and rolls the wish I've had since I proposed. We head down to the market in search of a local that can point us in the direction of the best. It takes all morning to get there but boy was it worth it! This is the magnificent view from the very top of the Temple of Heaven, on the little balcony.



Ernesto and I look at each other and read our own wish in the other's eyes. With only a fleeting thought to the wrath of our mothers we are sure to face when we get home, Ernesto and I change into our formal wear and give in to the beauty surrounding us, stretched out as far as the eye can see.







Later that day finds me back at the Academy dishing out some more whooping! This time my competitor and I are more evenly matched it seems, but I still hand her a loss.



I get a call from a local asking if I could check out the old MA Academy up the hill from the current Academy. I call up Ernesto to see if he wants to help out.

We Aieeehya! and butt scratch our way through the piles of rubble in no time and find some interesting treasures underneath. Ernesto says he's going to miss this MA outfit the most when I skill up again. (His favorite colour is Irish Green.)



Ernesto takes the warning about the dark spots seriously and continues forward on his hands and knees. I just giggle at him and head off in another direction to figure out the wall fire traps puzzle.



When I puzzle my way out and come back around, I find Ernesto passed out on the floor amongst his fire traps. After making sure he's ok, I can't help but laugh at the sight of my hunky new husband smokin' hot and crispy!



Ernesto and I complete the mission in the morning and I head back to the Academy for more MA sparring. Again, a seemingly even match but I also hand her a loss!



[Ho Sung Kim, seen here, is a stunningly gorgeous Sim!]

This time Ernesto gets a call to check out the Dragon Cave, so off we go. It's a long walk up another hill but the photo Ernesto takes is almost worth enough to rent a small space in Bridgeport, should we want to.

What to do when you come across strange fridge-like looking things deep inside a fire-breathing cave in a foreign country? Open 'er up and crawl inside, of course! The golden glow has to mean something good, right?



No harm, no foul.

Our last day in China finds me back at the Academy. I take a break from sparring to cash in on some of my wishes and try out a board breaker. It's harder than it looks but Ernesto is getting so good at photography that you can't tell!



Ernesto makes one last trip to the market before our flight leaves to pick up a couple souvenirs for us and the family back home.

*Sigh* Too bad good things always have to end. This was such a magical trip with Ernesto and I eloping and all. Which reminds me, maybe I should call ahead and tell my mother. Give her time to calm down before we get home. Maybe in a little while. *Contented Sigh*

Beautiful scenery for the wedding, congratulations.  Fhore and Ernesto are probably going to get a tongue lashing for that though lol.

Although, I think that Fhore can handle herself as she looks a bit menacing with the pickaxe in her hand.

Thanks Sassy, Katluvr, and Juxt! Fhore can absolutely hold her own against the local MA experts of China but a mother and mother-in-law denied the chance to plan and throw a perfect wedding?! That's going to take a lot more time at the gym (hiding, mostly.) :D

*Snickers* Well, if you want something hot and crispy that sounds like chicken. Go visit Kattiq's dynasty and get you some Skinny Legs (mwahahahaha). Ernesto's more of a melt in your mouth pastry. Yum yum.

Oh dear! I leave you guys alone on my thread for a couple hours unsupervised and I have Skinny Chicken Legs fighting with Melting Pastry and Koffi!  :D

Thank you to Rachel, ILoveDolls, Alexandria, and Esther for your enlightening comments regarding Gobias Koffi! (especially ILoveDolls and Esther) You guys are a riot! I'm glad you enjoyed the unique in my Dynasty impromptu wedding.

Now I need some serious sleep.

Therie: Week 21 Part 2

This a a short update as not much is going on during the last part of this week.

First off, I just want to say that my best friend Christen Curious died shortly after I call to tell her the kids had eloped in China. I was planning on throwing them a reception party but now this. The kids are devastated over Christen's death. I think part of that is the guilt for denying an old woman the joy of seeing her only child get married! I was so mad at first, until I saw just how hard the kids where taking the situation. I have since let them off the hook.

Fhore calls up our designer and has a small MA retreat created for herself in the back yard. She spends a lot of time out there these days.



Being a genius helps Franklin get through his homework each night, but being a teenager means he still complains about it the entire time!



Dad Tu and I head out for a morning of bliss at the Tranquility Spa Friday morning. It is rejuvenating to say the least. And then I have to go to work for another shift.



After Wilbert and I get back from work, we sit in Grandpa Wunn's purple chairs and read. I learn the intricacies of preparing egg rolls (my gift from China from Fhore and Ernesto) while Wilbert catches up on the latest medical research.



Grandpa Wunn suffers another heartbreak when his son, Feisal, calls to say his mother, Grandpa Wunn's fiancee, Connie Greenwood, passed away at home. I think I will leave men alone after my Wilbert dies. I will have had two loves and that is plenty enough for me.



When Ernesto does not make it home after only his second day at work, Fhore confides in me. Ernesto has joined the group at the Warehouse as a decoy. Fhore is mad at his career choice [what other option does an evil Sim present?] and heads down to the military base to join up. I think she hoping to convince Ernesto there are more fulfilling ways to put his athletic ability and genius brain to work. Anyway, some pics of the Ride of Shame to jail!





It took the kids halfway through their young adulthood to chose careers, hopefully Ernesto gets this out of his system before they decide to have a child of their own!

Franklin meets up with his best friend, Sandi Nowak, at the park. She does not seem to be a descendant of an original Twinbrook family but if my Franklin is happy then so am I. She is a darling girl with fabulous blue eyes.



While Fhore has the designers out to work on her MA retreat, she also has them redo her and Ernesto's room to incorporate some Irish Green for Ernesto. Basically, they just switch most of the Pink out for Irish Green. I think I turned out wonderfully. Fhore also hangs up a couple pictures Ernesto took while on their trip to China.





Next Week: Ambrosia for Therie. Wishes have been rolled for a nooboo.

Ernesto sure doesn't look sorry. He's like: "Yeah, so! When my lawyer gets me out I'll be back out here doin' it again, Po-po."  Oh Ernesto...you bad, bad Carmel Covered Brownie...mmmm

Hey Esther and ILoveDolls! I can't wait for a nooboo either.

Ernesto is giving the police officer the evil eye, isn't he? I didn't pay that much attention, I was hung up on the fact that is was only his second day at work! I've played the criminal career before in another game and that Sim didn't get arrested even once! It's a whole different ball game for Ernesto. And he was supposed to get a promotion! Bah.

I had to fiddle around within the confines of Fhore's MA garden to give her enough room to meditate, she kept leaving. But as you can see I made it work!

Wow, I'm definitely late for the fight between Ernesto and SL on who tastes better. But in case you were wondering, I have no opinion because I do not eat simmies ;)

Sandi & Frankiepoo would look so cute together.....
