We decided to go check out CAL DAY on campus first then go back to Springfest. Check out the baloonified Ihouse from the front, CALIFORNIA babes, CUTE GIRL IN A TUTU, and LOOK – THEY BROUGHT A CABLE CAR TRAIN FROM SAN FRANCISCO INTO BERKELEY FOR CAL DAY. HOW COOL IS THAT. My goodness.

Okay while walking to campus we passed by the frat houses as usual.. and this was the first time I had a taste of REAL AMERICAN FRAT LIFESTYLE – AND ITS LIKE THE MOVIES. No kidding. Watch my sekret video taking skills.

Hohoho.

They even had cute old men performances!!!! HOW CAN YOU RESIST CUTE OLD MEN PERFORMANCES. And I stole a balloon and was carrying it around the whole day feeling very proud of myself.

CUTE OLD MEN PERFORMANCE. SO. CUTE.

More frat madness on the way back. This frat house has been commonly acknowledged as the most havoc house along the street HAHA so it was no wonder when we turned the corner we saw a HUGE WATER SLIDE and bodies spilling over the lawn. HA.

We got back to the ihouse in time for the highlight event, which was the INTERNATIONAL FASHION SHOW. Which was pretty much like racial harmony day fashion show, except with more than four ethnicities.. LOOK AT ERIC – who was the emcee for the show. Ridonkulous.
