I’m back in action

After two glorious weeks of meditating, working on an organic farm and chilling, I'm all ready for the world.

My camera really doesn't do the place justice.  Surrounded by mountains that were covered with a magical mist, I felt I was on a floating island in the sky 🙂

Check out the insect life I was so curious about.  I actually watched a spider spin his whole web and it was amazing how it knew about physics and geometry.

And lookee what we have here … it's a tomato I found …

One heart shaped tomato 🙂 It's my sign that the world is full of love … yeah, I'm a hopeless optimist but I won't have it any other way :)  Anyway, it's hard not to be in awe of miracles when you're out in nature :P

Overdue: The Wedding

Not as late as the Hong Kong posts but it has been about 3 and a half weeks since I officially became A Wife :P  Still not use to it but I'm so very grateful to my parents for letting me have the wedding I wanted to have.  Yep, I was never the little girl who imagined a GRAND wedding, in my head it was a lot simpler too but I have to say the whole event went better than I could have imagined it.  A homely ceremony with my dearest family and friends there to share it – warm, loving, fun and very very special.  Thank you, Daddy and Mummy for being the cool, fantastic and young (that's what all my friends said) parents who made it all possible.

*psst don't tell anyone, but it's my sister who keeps my parents cool and fantastic (the young bit … they do that very well by themselves) so kudos goes out to my Charlie too!!!*

And thank you my dear dear friends who woke up early on a Saturday morning, answered silly questions, ate cupcakes, drank Snapple and most of all fill the day with so much love.  Thank you.

And for those who weren't there, this was the song my Dad and I walked down the aisle with.  Technically, A. and I don't have a song … does that make it our song now?  Anyway, we chose it mostly because it was one of the first few songs we both like and it was a song A. has serenaded to me once … yeah, he gets a little silly sometimes and when the mood hits him, he'll sing :)  He's done musicals before so I don't know why I'm surprised every time he sings.

Unknown to A. though, I actually watched Moulin Rouge in Banff when I first met him.  I thought it was a real kick ass romantic movie and it was the same trip, I told myself that I'll return to Banff for my honeymoon too.  So maybe some things are meant to be 🙂

P/S: Still waiting for the professional pictures so will update as soon as I get them 😉

Overdue: Hong Kong day02 …

… the Filmart was pretty quiet and I think it's because we got there on the 3rd day … so not sure if we'll be coming again next year.  Besides the ferry, this trip was a real treat for me coz A. (then boyfriend and now husband) decided to come to Hong Kong for a short break too.

It was a real treat because when we go away, it's usually back to Canada to visit his family or to Australia to visit mine.  So we completely lapped up the whole experience … we're not sure if we'll be back to Hong Kong any time soon though … shopping and desserts aside, the pollution made the whole experience very very undesirable except when I was on the ferry (yeah, I really liked it)

Survivor Withdrawal and Yul rocks!!!

It's over … Survivor:Cook Islands … it's over and I'm a little bit at a lost of what to read on the net now.  It was a great season and the guy I was rooting for won :)  Very satisfying like a good meal when you're starving.

Honestly, if Ozzy won … I'd be happy too but it was really great to have Yul win.  He truly deserve it, I mean it's very much a social game so the winner had to be more than just a fierce competitor like Ozzy was.  Ozzy was truly one of the most craziest competitor ever, in my opinion he's some mutant … some X-men of sorts 😛

For whatever it's worth, this was one of the best seasons of Survivor and all thanks to Candice for the mutiny that made it all crazy and created the greatest underdog since David – Aitutonga!!!!!

Oh well … till the next thing I get hooked on … I'll be re-reading the survivor news … oh wait, is Grey's Anatomy Season 3 on DVD already?

Survivor Frenzy

I just finished watching episode 11 of Survivor: Cook Islands.  Can you believe it's the 13th season of Survivor?  I stop watching after season 3 … it was in Africa or something, I can't remember except that it got boring … you know, the same strategies, the same kind of stereotypical cast … so I stopped watching it … that and I moved into my own place without a TV :P  However, with season 13, Mark Burnett decided to divide the tribes by race and that intrigued me… I started reading about it, what happens in each episode … as a social project I thought it was pretty interesting.  After two episodes, they merge them all and it was like a normal survivor and I thought … ok, I'm going to stop watching it. 

Then I was in LA for work and watched the recap episode as well as some pivotal episodes, mainly just the MUTINY one which practically sucked me into this season.  Mostly because of the diverse range of tribe members … many of which were picked off the streets.  Other than that, the producers basically did the usual things to stir up drama.  So I think for the newer seasons, they should really keep up this MO – mix up the cast with people who applied with people who really don't have a clue about the series and in all honesty don't quite care for it but are game to try anything for a million dollars.  Opens the game play to a wide opportunity of new strategies :)  For anyone who's watching it currently watching it on channel 5, don't miss episode 8 … you so won't regret it.  It brings new meaning to the David and Goliath.

Ok, I'll 'fess up here's the reason why I'm into this season too …  cute, smart and check out those abs … I'm a total ab girl and you know, he's really really sweet … or at least the version the producers choose to portray on TV.  Oh well, that's why I love crushes, celebrities or otherwise, they are exactly how you imagine them to be in your head and it never becomes real and have no chance of getting bad :)  I love crushes ;) 

In real life, I'm as lucky as I am in my head … AJM is sweet, funny, smart and best of all, kind :)  So  a girl can sometimes have her cake and eat it too … the thing is though, good things never ever lasts but hey, that's life … up and down and up and down … if not, life would be boring like the rest of the Survivor seasons … I rather take my chances with a little more excitment and great opportunities for the underdog like Suvivor: Cook Islands 🙂

It’s time for a haircut

Wags_Dec2006_03 Wags_Dec2006_02 Wags_Dec2006_01

What choice do you have when you're on chilling in bed, doing window shopping online and a completely adorable puppy looks longingly at you?  Yep, no choices, so I whipped out my camera.

Wags was none to impress.  I honestly think it's not because I was sticking a camera into her face but because she's way overdue for a hair cut … hmmm … would it be fur cut for doggies?  Which ever you know what I mean. 

Meanwhile, she is very cute like a mop of fur scurrying around the house :)  I'll have my fun with the scruffy Wags till my sister takes her for her next grooming and she'll look like this again …
