Accent Challenge vlog, Part 2

TGIF, friends, and happy Canada Day to you Canadian readers! As promised, I have Part 2 of the Accent Meme vlog.

However, before we get into that, I'd like to encourage you to take a looksie at the darkly wonderful online kidlit mag, Underneath the Juniper Tree. Their July issue is out today, and I don't know, you may find one of my insidious sentences lurking in the issue. ;) (*hint* I won a challenge.)

On to the fun stuff!

To review, Sophia (Sophia the Writer) found an Accent Challenge Meme on Tumblr and thought it'd be a great for our next vlog. We got boba and filmed it. Much giggling ensued, and I found out I've been pronouncing New Orleans wrong.

Here's Part 1 if you missed it: Accent Challenge vlog, Part 1

Accent Challenge: Part 2



This part of the Meme was all random questions. So here's my question to you: Wizard or vampire? :)


For those of you in the States with me, it's Fourth of July weekend! Here's to celebrating Independence Day, fireworks, and a day off from work! For those of you who aren't celebrating a holiday, WOOHOO IT'S JULY!!!

Have a fabulous weekend, and I'll see you on Wednesday.


P.S. A note on the grandparents question: in Chinese, you call your grandparents different things depending on which side of the family they're on. It's even more complicated with uncles and aunts because what you call them depends on which side they're on AND whether they're older/younger than your parents. Then there's dialect to take into consideration - as in what I call my grandparents (Ah-ma and Ah-gong) are Taiwanese terms.

P.P.S. Oh and if you were wondering from last week's Randomosity, meeting with blog friends went well. I wined and dined them on Taiwanese shaved ice & boba, and they loved it!

I used to say New Orleans wrong. I say Caribbean incorrectly.

Good to know that everything went well between your blog friends.
Happy Fourth of July (even though we don't celebrate it here as much)!

You guys are a coupla goofballs. And of course I love it!

Wizard all the way. :)

AND now the Chinese names all make sense! One of my BIL's is Chinese and we often have family get-togethers with his extended family too. For the longest time I couldn't figure out what their names were because they were using these (seemed to me) interchangeable Chinese names, lol. Now I think I have a clue!

This is so neat! Yes, in Korea, they call aunts and uncles different names depending on which side of the family they are from too!

Came back to say hi.

A choice between wizard and vampire? WIZARD!
