    hell happened 2 the idea of summer
    hell happened to the idea of summer?

    I thought the movie was pretty good too...considered

    ahhahahaha ..really?? well ur luggage amount sounds
    Ah Ha...really? Well, your luggage amount sounds= it sounds like the amount of luggage (you have to carry)
    reasonable compared 2 my camp load
    reasonable compared to my camp load = he was carrying so much luggage it felt like he was hauling a whole camp full of luggage, that is, enough luggage to set up a complete campsite. Hyperbole for the sake of emphasizing just how much luggage,
    ahhah.. well i'm sure sharon had no trouble handing
    ah ha...well I'm sure that Sharon had no trouble handling (I think handling is meant, not handing)
    that overseas uh...thing u mentioned
    that overseas..er..thing you mentioned. Writer is referring to some situation/matter that occurred overseas that Sharon had to deal with, and doesn't want to say exactly what in the email, perhaps in case some other person should see the email and thereby know something about Sharon which he does not wish others to know.

    hei, was it like those blardy camp backpacks we used
    Hey, was it like those bloody camp backpacks we used
    in was it yr 9 camp??? & they were sooooo BLARDY
    in...now..was it back in that camp we had in year 9 at school? and they (the backpacks) were sooooooo BLOODY
    Heavy..when we camped out in da snow
    heavy...(it was the time when, you remember), when we camped out in the snow
    hahahaah... yeh..i can c annie wif all these small
    hahaha (laughing)...yeh...I can just picture Annie now carrying all those small
    bags!
    bags!

    ehhe..it's actulaly Quanzhou... i think Guangzhou is
    eh...it's actually (pronounced) Quanzhou...I think Guangzhou is
    slightly beeter ... or was 7 yrs ago
    slightly better (closer to the Chinese way of saying the name of the city)...or it was (the better way to pronounce it) 7 years ago
    it's all polluted full stop.
    it's all polluted, full stop ( Full stop = Nothing else is worth saying about that city, It's just a polluted garbage dump of a city, period.)

    aniwaiz, gotta hit da shops! ehhe
    Any way, I've got to hit/go to the shops! eh going to be fun
    luv,ke
    love, Ke (could be an Asian name, or some abbreviation of a Western name, eg Ke instead of Kev for Kevin, instead of Kelly, Kerry
    I'd be very interested in seeing how this person completes the English in a job application form.
