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

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

Edwards Gardens

Bright summer day is always beautiful but summer is slowly going away and I did manage to take a few pretty summer pictures at Edwards Gardens.  My last visit was last year at a photo shoot for my friend’s wedding, the relaxing feel was totally unforgettable so I figuared why not go for a short visit.  The parking lot was very full, I guess people had decided to feel the summer one last time before it goes away during the long weekend 😛  It was really a perfect day for a walk at the park, weather was very nice and cool, didn’t really expect to see any flowers because it was August already but I did find a few interesting things and it really was a very enjoyable afternoon.  Here are a few pictures I took 🙂

Main Street Unionville (cloudy/rainy photo shots)

I didn’t expect with a cloudy weather Saturday I would manage to come up with a few good pictures, guess it doesn’t have to be sunny to get that achievement hehe.  I haven’t taken any pictures outdoor in a cloudy day for a long long time and the result was not bad.  I love photography, don’t want to be a professional but I am trying a lot different types just for fun.  Practice is what I need and I am sure I will do a lot of that this summer.  Every experience begins with a start, feel free to comment because I will definitely need that to improve my skills hehe.

St. Jacobs Flea Market

Call me a noob, can you believe after all these years living in Toronto, I had never been to St. Jacobs?  The weather wasn’t the greatest, just a little rain which was perfect because the hot weather would probably kill me outdoor :-P.  There were actually a few surprises went I got there, the size of the Flea Market is so huge, soo many amish people, the place was totally packed at 10 in the morning and a tourist hot spot.  Compare to the flea market I had been to, the biggest difference I noticed was probably the indoor area, tons of unique shops and food counters, I was amazed by those specialty food counters lineups, outside area was more like a festival/farmers market/shops and not to mention there is also an antique area too on the other side of the street.  It was a very good experience overall, everyone was soo friendly, as a city boy that wanted to get away from concrete, this is definitely a place to go from time to time because of the calm atmosphere 🙂

It’s finally here!!!  This is something I wanted to learn a long long time, I just can’t believe I finally bought one from Amazon.  From  what I found on YouTube, this should be pretty easy to learn, but after I put together all the parts, I gave a few tries, its not easy at all LOL.  Anyways, it will probably take sometime to master it for sure, and a few friends even offered to buy me a red nose while I am in the learning process, well thanks for the offer, I am sure a clown look won’t speed up the learning 😛  Anyways, I will try to blog about the process cuz I think it should be fun, hehe.  Anyhow, just wanted to share this new toy with you all!!!
