We talk about your work how your boss is a jerk We talk about your church and your head when it hurts We talk about the troubles you've been having with your brother About your daddy and your mother and your crazy ex-lover We talk about your friends and the places that you've been We talk about your skin and the dimples on your chin The polish on your toes and the run in your hose And God knows we're gonna talk about your clothes You know talking about you makes me smile But every once in awhile I wanna talk about me Wanna talk about I Wanna talk about number one Oh my me my What I think, what I like, what I know, what I want, what I see I like talking about you you you you, usually, but occasionally I wanna talk about meeeeee (me,me,me,me-background singers) I wanna talk about me (me,me-background singers) Artist/Band: Keith Toby Lyrics for Song: I Wanna Talk About Me

The BIG day!!!

After a month of packing, finally, we were moving out of the mansion, the house was way too big for the 3 of us, with the perfect timing for the real estate market, we could get 2 houses out of this too.

There were soo many problems we ran into, parents didn’t want to throw away anything was the number 1 problem, because of that, it also created a butter fly effect.  Problem number 2 was, the house we were moving in was way too small for everything we had…  Problem number 3 was, it also took forever to unpack everything (things we use day to day).

As I mentioned, we got 2 houses, one for my parents and one for myself.  We had to use up all the space in my parents house as a storage for my house, so the garage is totally stuffed with only inches to spare, all the bedrooms are also stuffed, no house guests are welcome at the moment because walking around is a big problem…  Not to mention, we also had a storage unit full of stuffs to move to this house as well…

But at the end, I was happy, just weeks later, I will have my own cozy place that belongs to myself, I can do whatever I want and no one will disturb or interrupt, YAY!!!  Making Step 1 to happen was a big thing, I am sure the steps to follow are even more challenging and exciting but I am looking forward to it!!!

Montreal

After so many years living in Toronto, can you believe this was my very first time being in Montreal?!  First thing I noticed when started entering the area, everything is in French (no surprise), the roads, traffic lights, buildings, even the parking meters are different, very interesting!!  I just couldn’t resist to start off doing one of my favorites, “shopping”, spent quite a long time hanging out downtown checking out those unique shops.  As I was also told, food taste a lot better no matter which restaurant I go in, went in a few random restaurants/cafes, of course I have proven it is not a myth at all and the price is very inexpensive as well.

Overall, I love Montreal, nothing is alike Toronto, feels like there is life in every corners, not to mention you can get Alcohol anywhere including gas station hehe.  I really don’t mind going back there for more visits but the long driving hours…  Might try flying or taking the train next time, could also be fun 🙂

911 Cousins visit 2014

It’s the time of the year when my cousin Rita and Elaine came for a visit.  They would come when they have the time off so it wasn’t surprising that they came this year.  Didn’t really do a lot with them because they had been to everywhere in Toronto really, but we decided to go to Niagara Falls for some nice pictures for a day.  Tho the weather wasn’t the greatest, at least it wasn’t raining 😛 The visit was kind of short, all we did was to walk along the falls back and forth, but it was a fun one day trip that I haven’t had for a long time 🙂  Well, I don’t know when they will come visit again but I am sure the next time when they visit, I will be living at my own place without my annoying parents around 😛

#icebucketchallenge

I was nominated by Minnie Yuen to take this ALS ice bucket challenge, I gracefully accepted and donated to ALS.ca

I didn’t nominate any more people because most of my friends had already done it, either if you do or don’t take this challenge, please make a donation to ALS for their research. Thanks!

and Thanks Cheryl Chow for being behind the scene for this video 🙂

Weekend get away!!!

Most people know me as a stay home geek and yes, I was and I am hoping I will be transformed into an outdoor adventurist soon.  I really haven’t done something like this for ages but a weekend get away was what I needed, other than hanging out the shopping malls all the time, went to a few places over the whole weekend for a change.

Welland Canals, first time ever seen a ship passing through a canal in action, 2 things that totally amazed me, first was the person driving the ship because the canal was super tight, second was the speed while the ship was being raised.

Port Dalhousie, probably the most beautiful and calm area I have even been in Ontario, the view of the sunset just above the lake was just amazing, it was very refreshing after just a short walk along the port.

Buffalo, the last time I was there was when I got my immigration papers and needed to exit Canada and came back in.  After 20+ years, it certainly seems the same, some area can be very dead and some can be very lively. The lineup through the border was way longer than I expect even it wasn’t a long weekend abut it was a good experience to be back after soo many years.

Queenston Heights, yet another beautiful and calm place, you could pretty much spend a whole day doing whatever there, I saw people having Birthday parties, BBQ, kitting, baseball, walking jogging etc.  There is even a restaurant there if you want to have a beer or dinner with a great view of the lake if you want to spend your day that way too :-p

Niagara on the Lake, sigh…  tho I had been to it a few times, I didn’t even know there is a beautiful country road Niagara River Parkway…  Anyways, it’s all about wineries!!!  Jackson Triggs FTW!!!

and there are a whole lot more to see on my facebook here https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.10151782892390211.1073741829.689775210&type=1&l=8d12932ff7
