let it rain~

Finally, it's raining! Hoohoo! It's been so dry in Toronto lately and because we have not water our lawn, it is looking kinda dead right now. I was so happy to see it rained this morning... so happy. Please save our lawn...

I haven't been writing my blogs for a while now. Ever since my good friend Lance's incident, I feel like i lost a reader, and really don't feel like writing anymore. But then i thought that i cannot just give up my blog site, i have to keep it up! Right....

Mr Huang's Convocation

Today was ming's convocation. We got to the place at 8am! Then the ceremony began at 10am. It was a cute little hall and the ceremoney went smoothly. The keynote speaker was very good, her speech and her dog are something that i will never forget in my life. Do you remember who was your keynote speaker during your convocation? I certainly don't.

It was a good day. Everyone was so proud of themselves and of their son/daughter/grandson/granddaughter/dad/mom/brother/sister/

I heard a boy in front of me said "so many teachers!~" Hahaha...

Congratulations, Mr. Huang. You will make a difference in our future generation's lives.

Taiwan is such a mess right now. I don't know what to read or listen to anymore. The politicians are fighting against each other everyday instead of trying to do their real jobs, which is serving their people. Time and money are wasted when the news are reporting these useless childish plays. As the general voters, we do not wish to listen to all these craps. We only wish that good news are being told, good things about the country and good things about how as a nation, we are working together to improve everyone's lives. No more fightings please...

I can't believe that I actually finished reading another book! The last time i picked up a book and actually read from the beginning till the end was like 2 years ago (the Nanny Diary). This time, it's "a curious incident of the dog in night time" and it was a great book. As some of you might have heard of this book from ming's blog, it was me who actually started reading it before he did. I bought this book a long time ago, read about 1/3 of it, then i gave it to Connie as a "go away" gift when she left Toronto. I bet that she hasn't even started reading it. This book is very interesting and very easy to read as it is written from an autistic kid's point of view. I have dealt with autistic kids before and they really have their own set of rules and live in their own world. Some of them are very talented, just like the character in this book, he is amazing in math. The one that i've met was amazing in art/drawing, he used to play cartoon via video tapes, pause it, and copy the picture onto his paper. He would make it exactly the same as the picture and it really amazed me.
So during our Costco trip, i bought 3 more books, plus there's one more that ming had ordered online for me, let's see how many i can finish this summer, before my school starts. ;)

After $588 spent on tires at Costco this afternoon, we went into the warehouse to wait for the tire installation. Then the funniest scene happened. There must have been like over 40 men standing in front of the electronics section, each watching his own TV (coz there were too many of them), and guess what was on it, soccer. My goodness... The crowd even cheered so loud when the Brazil tream scored the final point of the game. What is it with the world cup...?

I have to apologize to my friends who got my 10+ forwarded emails tonight. I tried to clean up my hotmail account tonight, the account that i often leave the forwards the way they are. As of now i have 28 unread emails, better than the original 54 unread emails. But whoever got my forwards tonight, that means i thought of you and maybe thought of you more than once (coz u probably got more than 1 forward). Every time i click on a person's name, the person's face pop up in my head, and i often wonder how he/she is doing. So forwards is a good way of thinking of my friends. ^^

We went to a BEAUTIFUL wedding yesterday (maybe i should say the day before now coz it took me all night to finish this blog). The wedding went so smoothly and everything was just perfect. I give my hat off to the couple who spent so much time and work to put this together because they really did a good job. Luckily they had a lot of help from their families too and they are very fortunate that way. After attending this wedding, it makes me want to have one in North America so bad. The truth is, i basically grew up here and i am so accustomed to the traditions here and this is the type of dream wedding that i've always wanted. But then so many other factors will forbid me from doing this and i know that at the end we will go back to taiwan for our wedding. Is it possible to move this type of wedding back to taiwan? If that is possible then it will be the best solution...... so depressed right now.... one of my pms talks.

I heard that ming's parents and his uncle are going to make a visit to my parents this coming up Sunday. It is the 提親 luncheon i guess. I am getting very nervous about this, because i am not sure if both parties will remain judge, calm, and happy about this whole wedding thing. I hope it will turn out okay... Coz ming's and my happiness will rely heavily on this first official get together. I don't think that my mom is particular interested in this kinda social event, and i think i am very much like her in this case. We both think as long as we know, then it's all fine. Probably no need for an official talk. But i guess ming's want to show their sincerity. So let's pray everything will be fine. >.<

I could not believe my eyes when i was leaving work today, coz the clock read "7:17!!!" Holy, i honestly cannot recall the last time that i got to leave work before 7:20. I was so happy and everything was smooth on the DVP, until the stupid accident... I was listening to the traffic report, it said the accident is causing back up from Shappard to Finch (which is only one tiny block, and you can usually pass thru in 1 minute). So i thought, oh ok, only 1 block so it shouldn't be too bad. Turned out that one block costed me an extra 20min!!! Damn it... Finally one day that i got to leave work early, but ran into this kinda stupid accident. How does a car get set on fire anyways? Does the car just start burning while driving on the highway? Half of that car was in ashes shape, so rediculous.
