CJ's First Blog Entry!

Saturday, September 13, 2008

The first picture is of us at Gwangalli beach. Jake hasn't quite got the posing thing down yet.

The second picture is me and my Dad with the Gwangan bridge (or G bridge) in the background. My Dad takes that bridge to work everyday. The toll is 1000 Won which is about the same as $1. He doesn't mind the toll cause the toll people are nice.

The last picture is me on my first day in Korea. Me and my Dad visited the orphanage that his work does volunteer stuff with. We had a picnic with them and I got to swim in a really cold pool. The kids were all really nice to me. I had my first Korean ice cream here which was awesome. It was a hunk of frozen coffee goodness.

Greetings everyone! This is CJ, the 10 year old wonder. As you probably guessed, this is my first blog entry ever. Korea feels very homey. Like Mom says, if I knew the language, it would be perfectly fine here. Jail, I mean school has started and I can tell it's going to be a good year. I have a teacher that used to be an Olympic athlete and has been to all 50 states. Most everyone in my class is Korean. I have a friend who is Australian and there's one Indian girl. Her name is Hershida but we call her Hershey, like the chocolate bar. The Korean books are very interesting. It's almost like some native language. It was a gift from above that my favorite toys are here in Korea, like Transformers and Legos. Well, I've stumbled across one of the most crazy foods that you'll ever imagine. It's a little thing I call fast food at this place called McDonald's. There's also the Lotteria which has shake shake chicken, which is little popcorn chicken that you put flavor powders in a bag and shake. I don't really shake it. I just eat it. We ride the subway and the taxi a lot since my Mom hasn't gotten her driver's license yet and my Dad's usually at work and cause we only have one car. I've seen some very strange things here such as live octopus getting their heads turned inside out to roasted pig's feet. The strangest thing I've seen here has got to be when I went into the steam room on the way to visit a water park. The man in the steam room was yelling at us, "Take clothes off! Take clothes off!" and there were naked dudes everywhere. My Mom was supposed to go through the women's steam room but she got too freaked out because of all the nakedness that she just didn't go. My Dad wanted me to mention that I did not see any ding dongs. Whew! I don't know why Mom and Dad won't let me see the Dark Knight movie. It couldn't scar me any more than the walk through the steam room. That's all for now. I hope you liked my blog entry as much as my Dad's. ---CJ



CJ - I can't believe your Mom was freaked out by all the nakedness. That doesn't sound anything like her!!!!!! I want you to know that I think your blog is soooooo much better than your Dad's. I think you should just take over as "Cruzer Family Blogger". Tell your Dad I said so. Also tell him I said, "Hi".
I'm looking forward to more blogs from you. Love, Angela

Aunt M

Well it's obvious that "the apple doesn't fall far from the tree"! Good goin', CJ. Can't wait to hear more from you!


CJ!!! That was the BEST BLOG EVER!!!! I think that you should make a career out of it - head CRUZ go boy!!

Bernabe Cruz

Great job on your first blog entry CJ. Episodes 7, 8, and 9 of the Star Wars Trilogy are in your hands. Your dad shall call you "mini me".

Em and the Fam

CJ... you are awesome! Chris and I laughed out loud at your steam room recollection. Also, you do have a good point about being scarred by the steam room. But for now, I guess its always the best idea to trust the ol' ma and pops. Say "Hey" to your family for us...
We all miss you!

Oh yeah, I almost forgot to say.... you are the BEST author this teacher has EVER seen! Keep up the good work. And don't forget to send me an autographed copy of your first comic book... whenever you publish it. Long live Burp Man!

Miss T

CJ ... if an author is what the people want ... than an author they shall get! I'm glad you are liking Busan, I am too! I can't wait for your next comic book ... and I have some connections at Pengiun Publishers ... so when you're ready I'll see what kind of strings I can pulll ... you know you have to write a "classic" for that one, right? See you at school!
