Gosh I love Jay

The concert was good.  90% good i would say, not perfect, coz he didn't sing the songs that i like the most.  But Jay's concert was definitely a lot better than David Tao's.  Well, David Tao sang all the classic popular songs of his, which was great, but he didn't do any of the fancy stuff that Jay did, like having customs, having special guests appearance, or background movie clips.
I couldn't believe that the concert was sold out!!!  lots of a-6 though.... anyways, it was an awesome experience.

Life is hectic, but Happy Birthday, Daddy!

Started a new job, finished another job yesterday; life is insanely busy.  
I am now an official GO transit/TTC commuter.  Will be taking the public transit almost everyday now.  Absolutely hate it.  But I guess it's better than waking up at 5:30 (even though I wake up at 6:00 now, not much difference), and driving home in rush hour traffic.
I hate the feeling of not knowing what to do.  That's what happens when one starts a new job.  It was a big step for me to change; change is hard.  It's hard when I really liked my previous job (except the hours).  This new job could be temporarily, it could be long-term.  Who knows.  Nevertheless, I am learning something new; like what daddy said "it's good, it's a learning new experience."  You are right, daddy.  Happy Birthday!!  Miss ya.
My Daddy, Dr. Su.

Why do emails always arrive after I leave my computer?

Finally finished a crazy 3 month stretch of work.  I have learned that being a teacher is hard.  Perhaps I do not know a lot about adult education.  But i really enjoyed this experience.  I was fortunate to have a great bunch of students; they were dedicated and very hard working.  The 11 weeks flew by so quickly.  I don't know if i'll get the chance to do it again, but i wouldn't mind.
Another thing i learned was that my body is not built for full time work.  It really takes a lot out of me.  During the past 3 months, i felt like the me when i first started working, always tired, never feel rested.  On Saturday, i slept for 12 hours, trying to make up the sleep that i missed.  So right now i'm just going to chill.  No more work (also means no more $$).  What am i doing with my life?  The question surfaced again.

It was Nathan's 1yr old birthday party.  
Time flies....

It is disheartening when you used to like someone, but later found out some things about that person, and totally changed your view towards that person.

If someone applies for a position that is supposed to be a supportive towards your colleagues, then why doesn't that person support?

Sometimes people get in the mode of thinking you are now the boss and feeling all high and mighty, and forget about your own place.  I hate hypocrites.... Absolutely hate it.

Stephanie is asking "what's the meaning of life?"  
I often wonder the same too.
What is the purpose of living?  What are we working so hard for?  

Last night I dreamed that Jay was my boyfriend (oops, ming's gonna kill me), but he cheated on me, and I was so sad...  I was telling a friend that what's the point of staying with one guy who has a history of cheating, and repeats it again?  Hahaha... Men are bad animals on this planet.

自從家裡裝了衛星, 我以經看了好幾部電影。 發現其實我還滿愛看電影的。 但我只喜歡在家裡看, 不喜歡去電影院。 
昨天看了Sex and the City Movie,surprisingly 還滿感人的。。。 
之前還看了P.S. I Love You, 覺得那是近幾年來最感人的電影。 強力推薦。:)

Been busy at work lately as well.  I now realize the difficulty of ming's job.  Being a teacher is not easy.  Having patience is a must... Whether i have enough patience is yet to be determined.  But i really enjoy the challenges and see how the students are improving every day (well, at least most of them are).

Maybe because i've been working more, i'm always tired, sleep for a long time now.  Can't wait till X'mas now.  But i don't like x'mas, coz it makes me think about family and how i'm not around them.  So maybe i don't want x'mas to come.  X'mas also mean the end of a year, so i hate that feeling too.  That means another year has passed and i've still not accomplished anything.... Also means i'm getting old.  Boo x'mas, booo.....

Don't eat anything that's "Made in China"!!!  As simple as that....
If China does not care about their own citizens (including the vulnerable children and infants), it is their problem.  We as customers knowing how horribly China "inspects" their food products, should not be stupid and go buy things that are made in China.  Sure, their things may be cheaper, and why is that? Coz they add poisonous stuff in their food to drive the cost down... 不要逞一時之快, thinking you can save money now.  We will all end up paying more for it in the future.  I just cannot believe that the Chinese people are doing it again... Last time it was the animals (remember last time pet food in N. America killed a number of animals here) and this time it's the babies; and it is the same stupid thing that they used to put in pet food and infant formula.  How could they not have learned from it?  
If Taiwan ever joins China as a country, Taiwanese people will suffer from the same issues that the Chinese people are facing now.... By that time, I will not buy anything that is made in Taiwan either, coz I won't want my future children to get sick....
Hurting little babies just makes me so mad....

Went to do hot yoga last night.  The purpose of doing exercise is to get fit and healthy.  However, after I got home, it was already very late, I cooked dinner, and I hate a big bowel of dinner.  And because I ate so late, i went to bed late and could not fall asleep coz i was too full.... 真是反效果.

So Jay is coming to Toronto.  I am definitely going.  Can't wait!!!

Went to see Jamie and Emma over the weekend.  Emma is a little yellow... keep drinking oh, Emma.  Jamie and Emma 加油.

Friday, September 12, 2008

It's a Virgo...Again!

Congratulations to my good friend Jamie.  Jamie and Vincent had their baby on September 8th at 1:55am.  Emma is very very very cute and healthy.  I am so happy for them.

For the whole day, I was looking up on this brand of knife.  I want to get them so bad...

So sad....

Baby News- it's a Virgo!

So our good friend Lance and Nica had their baby.  Aiden is his name.  
I am so proud of them, becoming young and loving parents.
Aiden is healthy, gorgeous, and just perfect.
Nica is strong and looks so calm.
Whereas Lance is kinda clueless (especially with the new perm), but very supportive towards his wife and very caring towards Aiden.
Congratulations to them both!!!!
I can't wait to meet Mr. Aiden Wei

... continued from takko's comment....

I've been so busy with work and life this past few months, i've lost touch with blogging and facebook!  I used to be the loyal fan of people's blog and facebook that i would visit those sites more than twice a day!!!  Damn i miss those days- just sits in front of the computer and check out who's updated what.  Where have those days gone?!  And because i've lost contact with blogging and facebook, i don't even think about things that are worth blogging.  I used to think "oh, i can write an entry on this, another entry on that..." Well, not anymore!

If I have to think about what i want to write these days, it would be all the BS that i get from work.  For example, those snobbish, arrogant, disrespectful, useless doctors, or those useless, selfish, ass-kissing charge nurses.  This is what my mind has been filled with.  Of course there are also many many sad stories that i would rather just forget, or else i would not be able to work where i work now...  
And if i have to think about what fun i've had, it would be all the dinner, drinking, and poker parties that we've had.  I have discovered why alcohol can make one person high, and I now can drink one glass of wine without getting a headache.

So that's what's been happening with my life.  If ming were to blog about his past few months, it would probably be about the same as this, except he also did a lot of moving furnitures around in the house and that's all.  What a waste of summer, hahaha...
今天起來上班前有早餐吃(蛋餅歐),感覺真好。 一整天雖然只吃一餐早餐,但就很有精神。我說過當一個老公會早上起來煮早餐給老婆吃就代表他是愛她的  (or he has done something wrong, hahaha...)。

if you have time, go see the photos from our trip, Amsterdam-Brussels-London.

Friday, August 01, 2008

I heart europe~

Just got back from our trip to Amsterdam-Brussels-London.  What a great experience!  Amsterdam was such an interesting city, and I would go back again if I get the chance.  London was more like a revisit, since I was there about 6 years ago.  It is just awesome to see any cities in Europe.  They are so full of history and culture everywhere, something that N. America does not have.  The Dutch are such a relaxed population, they stroll when they walk, and they are always enjoying life.  London has some really handsome men.  I just love their subway system.  Almost wanted to buy a poster of their "underground tube" system.  The Europeans are very environmentally conscious, they do not have AC everywhere.  The days when we were there, it was so hot and what do N. Americans do when it gets hot?  Go hide in the malls or office buildings.  Well, that won't work in Europe, coz many stores do not have AC, or the ones that do, the AC is barely noticeable.  Globalization by the MacDonald's are the only restaurants that do have AC.  Of course, the americans cannot live in agony.  Ming would probably have an easier time in Taiwan than in Europe during hot days, coz at least there's AC everywhere in Taipei.  But Taipei is definitely still hotter than Europe.  What else can I say about European cities?  oh yeah, they are freaking expensive.  Anyways, I am going to upload the photos somewhere... Still haven't decided where to put up the photos.  Maybe Flickr?

It is July 1st, 2008.  Honestly, where did the last year go?  Ming and i have been married for almost 1 year now.  I still can't believe it.
Ming is finally done with school, but then more school starts in 1 day.... why does he have to make himself so busy all the time?
But anyways, we are going on our honeymoon part II in the end of July.  It's costing us an arm and leg, we probably cannot afford it (in fact, ming will say that we cannot afford it), but when are we going to go if we don't go this year?  I am working more these days to make up the cost of living.  Basically, i am just making money to cover my own shopping expenses.  Aritzia has definitely put a big hole in my wallet.

I've had quite a few busy shifts in the past few weeks.  Some of them were quite rewarding though.  It is great when your work is being appreciated.  It makes a huge difference.  Sometimes rewards cannot just come from patients, families, but encouraging words from your co-workers can also make a big difference.  We have recently hired two charge nurses and they are excellent; i am so happy about that.  Having good charge nurses is getting harder and harder these days.

Went to a wedding this past weekend too.  It was 1 1/2 hr drive from Toronto.  I think once in a while it is fun to go to another city, it's like a road trip.  Too bad that when i took out my camera wanting to take photos during the wedding, i just realized that there was no memory card in it.  :S  So mad.

I hope this is going to be a productive month.  I will be working a lot again in the next two weeks.  And i hope ming and i get our tax done.  :P  It is July after all....

i want my mommy/daddy

so mommy and daddy just left for vancouver. they are going back to taiwan in 4 days.
i was so sad and teary when i dropped them off at the airport. so sad.... even though we get into fights when we are togther, but i still want to be around them.
it is nice to get pampered once in a while by your mommy. while my parents are here, we went to do some grocery shopping a few times. they kept on buying this and that, even though they were only staying here for a few days. my mom was getting all the meat and veges coz she wanted to cook for us. my dad was buying so much fruits, coz he wanted us to eat them. then they paid for everything. they would not let us pay for the groceries. i feel so bad, but i cannot argue with them. they are always so good to their children. i feel like i didn't really take them to a lot of places when they were here, and my mom was always cooking for us when she's at home. i miss them terribly already. can't wait to go back to taiwan....

it was thundering at 1400 today...

My heart is aching right now...
I just found out that a patient from my work has passed away.  I have known this patient ever since I started working at this hospital.  She was such a special girl who made a difference in may people's lives.
Now that she has grown wings and returned to God's arms.  I will always remember her.

Tuesday, June 03, 2008

六月了。。。 日子過的真快。夏天很害羞要來不來的。有兩天熱的跟舌麼一樣,結果再來的一個月都還是很冷。
work is still busy every time I go. i seldom get a break, not eating anything for the whole shift, or if I do, i eat at like 6pm. :S
i've been doing some searches for the trip that we plan to go in July. everything is still up in the air. coz we are really not in any financial situation to go on a trip, but if we don't go, we will never go. plus, if we go later, then it doesn't count as honeymoon anyways.
i don't know why but i've been thinking about going to the Netherlands. ming wants to go to England, so we can probably go afterwards.
but i have to say, life is better now that my school is done. there is still some stress, but different kinds of stress. let's see if my acne improves now~ haha...

前天去T﹠T買了一包米。價錢旁邊還擺了一個牌子說一人只能買兩包米 好像跟現在缺食糧有關。結果回到家的時候當銘把米抬起來的時,整包米的袋子破掉,7/8(according to ming) 全部撒到車裡和地上。 我們花了好久的時間把米scoop起來,今天我花了更久把米很仔細的filter過。Ahy... 真是的,浪廢時間。

Tuesday, May 13, 2008


Trying to get out of the depressed mode.  So i've been thinking about where to go for honeymoon part II. I don't know why, i've always wanted to go back to Holland. Don't know anything about the country, and i went when i was very young, so i want to see it again.

I've been busy lately.  Worked quite a few days, and went to hot yoga twice with some friends.  I think i go more for the company than going to exercise.  But if it can get me to exercise, and socialize at the same time, then i think it's a good thing.

The long weekend is coming up.  Ming and i don't really have any plans.  So some friends have proposed going to the niagara for wine tasting.  Again, i will go for the company, not because i like wine.  anyways, looking forward to it loh.

Ming went to see the doc today.  He may have carpal tunnel (don't even know how to spell it).  ahy.... we are getting old.

我有時候會想, 如果我今天在台灣工作, 我會不會比叫成功? 我是否還是會像現在一樣懶而且只是作個平凡的工作? 常常把英文當做我的藉口 "因為我英文永遠不會比別人好, 所以我永遠不會做的比別人高" ... 還是我的事業心真的沒有那麼強... 當我在這碰到困難時就好想回台灣, 總覺得如果在台灣就不會出生這種事了. 我一直很相信一個人在事業上成不成功和他的人際關係很有關聯. 我覺得我的人際關係一直都很好, 直到我到了加拿大後... 不信你問問我在這的"台灣"朋友, 就可以知道其實我不是個那麼木訥, 不懂得交際的人. 噯... 說這些又有什麼用呢?

Sunday, April 27, 2008

we've been, or should i say "i" have been thinking about moving.  why? 
well, why not?!
there is probably more "why" than "why not" in moving.
this is how i put it to ming "it's like our current tv.  there's nothing wrong with it, we just like to have one that's nicer.  newer, slimmer, more expensive though.  just like a new house."

Friday, April 25, 2008

這幾天有種很孤獨的感覺,不知道為什麼,很突然的。 感覺這世上只有我和ming。 God大概想叫我好好珍惜彼此吧。 是不是結了婚的人都會有這種想法? 覺的好像除了我們倆個以外沒有人可以靠了。 或許這是種好事,因為如果每個結婚的couple都這麼想就不會離婚了.... maybe not.
我是不是念完書後開始想些有的沒有的?not good...

who wants to vacation with me?

today we received 2 red bombs... and i thought i have no friends.  :P

i have been looking for job postings lately.  it kinda freaks me out.  just thinking about going for interviews makes my palms sweat.  the truth is, i don't really want to get a new job.  i like my current job, i just don't like the nights and weekends.  and i actually enjoy staying home doing nothing.  don't know what ming would think though?  would a guy think of his wife as lazy if she just sits at home and do nothing?  not even cooking or housework?  i guess he would.... being married suddenly has some kinda "duty" or tasks that a wife needs to fulfill.  if i were single, nobody would care if i work once in a while and don't do any house chores.  ahy.... why the difference? is it just me? even if ming doesn't think this way, i would still feel like i need to do something, coz 人會講話嘛.

i've also been searching for vacation packages, coz i really want to go for a trip to the sunny locations.  when i told mel that i am going with friends, she said "poor ming."  yeah, i also think poor ming, coz he got to work and he always work very hard.  but what should i do? ming said "you can go, but i don't like it"  haha... well first i have to find people to go with!!!  

PS. i don't know why my blogger entry has become "single lined" which makes it really hard to read.

Now what?

So today was my official last day of class.  On my way to class, sitting on the GO train, i thought, this may be the last time i take the train!  Kinda sad because i have enjoyed my time taking GO trains and buses.  I don't miss the cold while waiting for them though.  Then after class, as usual i went to the union station to catch my bus back.  But i had to visit my favorite store one last time, coz i may not go there again, since it doesn't open on weekends.  It's a paper, stationary, gift store, and it is very elegant and classy.  Didn't buy anything though, coz god knows i've got too many stationaries and such.  On the bus back to markham, the driver was my favorite one.  I so wanted to give him a thank you card or something.  haha...  So now that school is almost over, i am starting to feel that "what to do next" again.  Kinda scary, and it makes me nervous....

Saturday, April 05, 2008

I'm going to call it.  This year it's going to be SA Spurs vs. BO Celtics in the finals.  After that, i don't know....

good luck to taiwan in the next 4 years.

Bush Congratulates Ma:
"I congratulate the people of Taiwan on the successful conclusion of their March 22 presidential election. Once again, Taiwan has demonstrated the strength and vitality of its democracy. I also congratulate Mr. Ma Ying-jeou on his victory. Taiwan is a beacon of democracy to Asia and the world. I am confident that the election and the democratic process it represents will advance Taiwan as a prosperous, secure, and well-governed society. It falls to Taiwan and Beijing to build the essential foundations for peace and stability by pursuing dialogue through all available means and refraining from unilateral steps that would alter the cross-Strait situation. I believe the election provides a fresh opportunity for both sides to reach out and engage one another in peacefully resolving their differences.The maintenance of peace and stability in the Taiwan Strait and the welfare of the people on Taiwan remain of profound importance to the United States. We will continue to maintain close unofficial ties with the people on Taiwan through the American Institute in Taiwan in accordance with our long standing one China policy, our three Joint Communiqués with the People's Republic of China, and the Taiwan Relations Act."
And I agree with him with the ONE China policy. Yes, China is one, and Taiwan is another one. So there's no conflict there.
臺灣人民快點醒醒吧。Do you really want to be called "China" or "China's little pet" (AKA HK and possibly future Tibet) instead of Taiwan?
If it's all for the economic prosperity, and we bow down to the ruling of China, doesn't that make us 現實的人?
But maybe I cannot say anything about that, because there's probably lots of ppl in taiwan who suffer from poverty and really wish for a better economy or a better life.
我不是在選黨,我是在選一個理念。如國今天馬可以把臺灣經濟搞好,只要不出買臺灣,不管誰當總統我都沒差。Just don't give me the BS that confuses people of taiwan. state what he wants to do. if he says what he truly believes, then he's probably not the winner today. He will sell out, let's just wait and see. And PLEASE, stop all the naked outtings, ok!!!
you can disagree with me if you want, but i think 公投has totally lost its meaning, it has become a political tactic for the two parties. i thought it was totally pointless asking this kinda question when people only know who they want to vote for and not really what they want for taiwan. so might as well stop doing it in the future. taiwan is not ready for this kinda democratic gesture.

apple is propaganda

whatever song that makes it to become an apple commercial song seems to become big later on.
for example, Feist's 1234, and now Yael Naim's new soul.
the apple commercial song that was playing constantly at the fashion mall in LV still rings in my ear from time to time.
and when i said constantly, i mean "constantly." the whole time we were in LV, we probably passed by it dozen of times, coz it's right across from our hotel and we would go there to shop and eat. ahhh... good times. and outside the mall, there was this huge TV or a projection TV that was playing an itune or ipod commercial constantly! it never played anything else but that one commercial. kinda a surreal experience, coz every time i think of that mall, i think of that song.

I think I have officially become ridiculous ~

I've been playing the fluffbook these few days.
addicted to the fluffrace thing. it's something that a 宅女 would do!!!
it's like gambling!!!
and so far i've lost a lot of "mummies"
i shall never go gambling...
coz i can very easily lose all my money.

Hate seeing the dentist, or the endodontist!

Went to get some dental surgery done yesterday.
The whole procedure took less than 30 min.
The fee=$1500.
That makes this endodontist's hourly rate=$3000.

He just went in there and dig... holy ouchy...
When the anaesthetics were injected into my gums, my heart was beating at 200/minute and I thought I was gonna pass out.
My right cheek is swollen like I am holding a piece of egg in there.
But I guess it's understandable since I have 6 freaking stitches in there....!!!
And my pee smells like penicillin coz that's what I'm taking to prevent infections.

I think the year of 29 has started to do its tricks on me...

No money no mini

I "sort of" organized my closet again! and i realized something... I have too much clothes that I don't get to wear often, coz I don't go out often.
Conclusion: I need to go out more!

Went to check out new Mini's today. No money sucks.

those with kids or will have kids will appreciate help like this --

the GO bus driver was so cute today.
a passenger was travelling with a baby. he was by himself and carring a baby's stroller. before he got onto the bus he needed the driver's help to put the stroller in the under-compartment. when he arrived at his destination, he carried the baby down, and the bus driver went down as well to open the compartment and dragged the stroller out. when the dad was trying to work the stroller in order to open it, he was having difficulty doing it since he was carrying his baby in one hand. so the bus driver offered to carry the baby for the dad, which he did, he took the baby from the dad's hand and held the baby like he's very experienced. he must have kids himself too. the dad was very appreciative and smiling. it was such a cute scene. i laughed when i saw them,it was one of those "warm fuzzy" moments in life.

Gang robs Zurich of top paintings

The four stolen masterpieces
An armed gang has stolen four paintings worth some $160m (£82m) by the great painters Cezanne, Degas, Van Gogh and Monet from a museum in Zurich.

I don't understand art thieves at all, what are they going to do with the paintings? keep them in their basement?
A black market? So what if you have these paintings? You can't show case them anyways...

Are the Suns making a big mistake?

Don't get me wrong, I like Shaq and I hate Marion.
But isn't Shaq a little too old and slow for the young and fast Suns (except Nash who isn't that young either, but he's still fast).
I mean, yeah, the lost to San Antonio without Parker was alarming (coz Parker is like the best), but is it worth panicking like this?
I feel for Marion though, he wanted to be traded, and then he got traded to the worst team in the NBA....
Anyways, go Raptors. What's up with Boston? they keep loosing now...
I predict that the Raptors will play Cleveland in the playoff and they will win the first round but lose in the 2nd round to Detroit.... totally made that up.

Sunday, February 03, 2008

when i finish school, i am going to buy the gilmore girl dvd and have a gilmore girls marathon. ahy.... when i finish school.... so close yet so far...

I have an application on Facebook called "Horoscope." It has been pretty accurate for me.
look what it says this week.
"Pisces: An event you've been looking forward to will be cancelled, but it will end up better that way."
What event is that?! hum...

Thursday, January 24, 2008


Raptors won tonight against the Celtics!!!
It must have been all the good deeds that they did visiting the kids at the hospital.
NBA cares~ Heehee...

Monday, January 21, 2008

Maybe living in Toronto has its good moments

There's usually not that many exciting events in my life that is worth blogging. But today would count as one of those days that something exciting actually happened.
My good friend Lance once asked "have you ever seen a NBA player in person?" At that time I could only answer "yes, i saw junk yard dog." But today......
I saw Chris Bosh!!! In real person, face to face, almost in contact with him!
I was at the hospital, doing some shadowing work for my practicum. While we were in a patient's room doing some teaching with the new staff, Chris Bosh and Joey Graham came to visit the kids on the unit!!! I was the first to see the players and yelled out "OMG" then some of us ran out to see what they were doing. Before they left the unit, the two of them were handing out some autographs, so when CB4 was handing them out, I just snatched one. Not everyone got it though. I kinda ran in front of some nurses in order to get it. I felt embarrassed doing it, but hey, it's CB4's autograph!!! So I had a "almost" in contact experience with him, how cool is that!!! After I finished my shadowing, I went over to another unit, and I saw them again. I am such a teen when it comes to seeing celebrities. Chris was more reserved than Joey, Joey was smiling and more personable. But Chris wasn't too bad either. He was really really tall, very skinny too.
And then (more exciting story here), when I was about to leave the hospital, I saw Sam Mitchell while I was coming down the elevator!!!! He was walking towards the direction that I was going, so I just followed him. I found out that he drinks coffee, Timmy Ho coffee, not Starbucks, coz he walked by it and didn't get it. He drinks his coffee regular. How do I know? Coz i was lining up right behind him!! Hey, I was going to get Tim's myself coz I was starving at that time, seriously. And guess what, he said Hi to me when he turned around and saw me!!! I said "Hi coach" back to him, Haaha..... He was with another man (pretty good looking black man) and for the whole time they were talking about basketball!!! Something like "what's his name? he rebounded pretty good...." Wow.... everything was so surreal. :D
I have to admit that I am such a 追星族.... hahaha.... Ahhh.... what a good day.

I feel bad for the Miami Heat, 12 loses... wow... They probably haven't won since November or something....
Anyways, Go Raptors!

乾脆就不用外交了, 省麻煩...

some off day events...

Last Thursday: i was trying to get to class which was at 1pm. got to the subway a little late, but it's usually alright coz class usually doesn't start until 10-15 minutes past 1pm. 坐不到一站, the subway announced to ask everyone to get off the train coz it was no longer in service (it was not running between yorkmill and eglinton station). so everyone got off at yorkmill station. tons of people were waiting at the subway stop for the shuttle going to eglinton station and everyone was trying to squeeze onto each shuttle that came along, it was so hectic, no personnel were helping with the order.... an old lady fainted, fell onto the floor, i couldn't really see the lady until much later (after more ppl left) and i noticed a classmate of mine was trying to help the lady. she was trying to get to class too! i waited for 1hr to get onto the shuttle... by the time i got to class, the class was almost ended, so mad, coz it was the most important class of the whole term... XD I talked to a girl in the class who takes the same route as me to go to class, she told me that someone jumped in front of the train, suicide jump, and she was in the first train and saw the whole thing. the train was not able to stop in time, even though they shut down the entire power supply, the guy was underneath. ahy... my friend was devastated.
After class, got onto the subway, no problem there, but when i got to the station, there was tons of cops, some areas were sealed off with police tapes. apparently some guy was almost beaten to death there, and it was all over the news that night.
Tonight: went to dairy queen to get some sweets, but some disgusting sightings happened... ming ordered a chilled cappoccino, kinda like a milk shake. the obasan making the drink used her bare hand to sweep off the excess ice cream in the cup three times!!! and we knew she didn't wash her hands after handling money. no matter, using bare hands to wipe off ice cream is just so gross. i told ming that i wouldn't eat it and if i were him i would tell the obasan that i am not drinking this (in a nice way). but being ming, he just took it and walked away. on the drive home, i was eating my strawberry cheesecake blizzard, i noticed something that tasted funny, kinda moldy, so i turned on the car lights, and noticed some black dots: yuck!!! ming turned the car around, i got back into DQ and tell them that there was mold in my ice cream! in a nice way, coz there were customers there... the cashier did not apologize, was going to make me another cup, i said no way, give me my money back! so she did. After we got home, ming threw his drink in the sink... :S

i've been looking everywhere for our 2nd phone handset. first i was happy that there's the "search for handset" function, but it is useless if that phone is totally out of battery... grrr... where the hell is the phone!

first day back to T.O

slept the whole night and the next day (woke up at almost 4pm).
still feeling a little sick and start to feel the stress of school.
i really enjoy my time in seattle and miss my family and friends there very much.
chloe has become such a big girl now. she is both naughty and more mature.
i think she knows more about cooking than uncle ming ~.^ hehee...
she is very attentive to her little sister anabelle, she is going to be a good big sister. even though i can't imagine her being a sibling, coz she's got all the attention in the world on her. it must feel weird as a parent, to have a child who used to be everything to you, then suddenly there's another one. how do you spare the love? anabelle is a lovely baby, she smiles very often and sometimes giggles!!! i don't think i've seen a baby giggle before!!! but she has some gas issue so she's kept her parents up all night for the past few days, poor mel, rudy, and chloe. one night the whole family was up at 5am, including my parents, lotus and robert. but i was sleeping soundly on the other side of the house. ming was the one who told me coz he fell asleep watching tv on the couch that night.
it is 2008 now. looking back to 2007, don't feel like i've accomplished anything (besides getting married, can that count as an accomplishment?) wasted another year. but honestly, which year in the past was not wasted? i think we need to do another road trip in order to feel like i've done something. ;)
