Haha the Japanese language sometimes confuses me. Like how much sometimes Ichigo is in Hiragana but sometimes it's in Katakana....Or Why use Milk in English when there is already a Japanese work for Milk? Nanka muzukashi tte omou.

Omoshiroi daketo...muzukashi.

I'm sad I'm losing my Japanese!

Yeah like when I lived over there I just used to wonder why the heck they use home...Why not just say Uchi? Or why is Sushi in English? Sushi is Sushi haha in Japanese. We used to have this place called Pink Sushi where I lived and the sign was Pink and it had Kanji in the beginning and then SUSHI. So it got labled Pink Sushi by us. So funny! I miss Japan however, don't get me wrong. If someone said here is a place ticket to go back there. I'd be like when can I leave?!?!

It's a photo of a Japanese milk candy, with 3 different flavours being advertised.

The funny thing about it is that under each Japanese description of the flavour, they have the english translation of the flavour, but they goofed on one.

The left one says "Coffee & milk" under the Japanese characters. The right one says "Yogurt drink". The middle one says "Ichigo & milk". "Ichigo" means strawberry in Japanese. So instead of writing "strawberry & milk", they just romanized the Japanese word.

Haha, I though it was funny. I thought that some of you might appreciate it
I love the Japanese milk candy and would completely eat up the box of "milky" or whatever it was called (with the hard balls of milk product all rolled up". Yum, yum...But maybe the Japanese skipped writing strawberry because they can't pronounce it. If they tried, it would sound like "staw belly" since they have a hard time rolling their "r"s. On a separate note, my relatives from Japan and us used to exchange gifts at Christmas. The funniest gift I got was a neon yellow shirt with a really small UCLA logo with the address of the student union (not really the official address of the school but more like a mailing address). It stood out to me because I was attending UCLA at the time....and UCLA has a big following in Japan.

Yeah, haha! Sorry.

What was funny was that some packages said Gloss, and were just fine, and then three said "Gross."

So of course, we bought one of the "gross" ones.

We should try to figure something out though, itd be so cool to meet you after reading your ptr!!! Im staying in the animal kingdom lodge, but ill be in the parks obviously. Im not sure what days, but you can check my sisters ptr (i think you can get to it from my page, shes Dancer4life22) she might have more info. its called waiting to see the giraffes.

Now that im thinking of it, where did you get the book of the hidden mickey heads? I love looking for them, and I tried downloading an app from itunes to my ipod, but it needs wifi so it didnt work I would love to pick one of the books up too!

I loved all of you drawings too, they were AMAZING!!!

Ok, I gotta check out your sister's PTR then. But your parents are right, I COULD be some creepy stalker!

I bought it online. I'm sure you can find a copy from amazon or borders.

Thanks for liking my drawings! I'm still practicing. My fave is the Giselle fanart, probably my best drawing ever!

I'll be updating real soon, I promise!

Chapter 10. Four different airlines, one destination

On my last 3 flights to the States, I've flown WestJet. One of those flights was for my very first trip to WDW

Having flown about 6 trips with them, I've fallen in love. I have enjoyed every single one of them. The flight attendants are so friendly, funny and accommodating and it's just a great experience flying with them.

Unfortunately for this trip, I won't be flying with them The main reason being, they're too expensive.

Now, the only flights I've ever taken that had connecting flights were to Asia. But lo and behold, connecting flight from Toronto to Orlando are also the cheapest flights!

So, for this trip, I'll be trying out 4 airlines I've never flown before. All for the one destination of WDW.

August 17, ARRIVAL :
8:30am flight out of Toronto on American Airlines (with a $15 baggage fee???)
Connecting in Chicago at 10:55am on United
Arriving in MCO at 2:28pm

August 24, DEPARTURE :
2:30pm flight out of MCO on Delta (another $15???)
Arrive in JFK, transferring to EWR
Connecting flight at 8:30pm on Continental
Arriving in Toronto at 10:33pm

The part I'm still a bit confused about is the transfer between JFK and EWR. I know those two airports are really close together, but will there be some sort of a shuttle that takes us there? Or will we have to cab it?

Also, I just re-watched "The Terminal" with Tom Hanks and CAN'T WAIT to see JFK

EDIT: I forgot to say that I booked my flights before I found out that:
a) Flying from Buffalo is A LOT CHEAPER
b) Buffalo is only a short 2 hour drive away from where I live

Which means, for my flights down to WDW or the States in the future, I'll be flying from Buffalo. Which opens me to great airlines like SouthWest and JetBlue!

If you go on the JFK website (I actually just got the link for you), you can see your options:

http://www.panynj.gov/airports/jfk-a...nnections.html

I would go with the easiest, even if it might not be the cheapest. You don't want to transfer or take public transportation if you've never been to NYC - it can be confusing, especially right around the Port Authority.

Most US airlines charge baggage fees anymore. I think we paid $25 a bag (each way) when we went to WDW in 2008 on Frontier Airlines.

Also, Spirit Air (I think that's right) is going to start chaging for CARRY ON bags. >_< I can see them losing fliers quickly.

Anywho! Next time we fly to MCO, we'll be taking Southwest...no baggage fees at all!

I've never had to connect through EWK but from what I understand AirTran has a free metro service or it's as little as $5. But you could pay for the other services if you want. But I'm cheap so I would go with the AirTran service.
