Ready for take-off

There is way too much going on and it’s going on around me. I’m not making anything go. It’s frustrating.
Thankfully, David and I are continuing bliss week together here in Toronto. We had a grand time in Montreal (mostly Repentigny to be exact) laughing and loving the new addition to the family. Since Dave’s […]

Sweet Dreams Are Made of These

Lovely lantern ladies paying tribute to the new addition to our world!*
Félicitations aux parents, Lydia et Joël! Bienvenue Arno Jazz!
I’m off to Montreal for the weekend to see my almost-nephew, le petit Arno** qu’il est superbeau! The little guy was born last week after lots of hard work by maman Lydia.
I had the […]

Okay, okay, I’ll cut the snark. What can I say? I have moments where the attention whore within leaps out. Actually, she leaps up and down, “Look at meeeeeeeeeeee!”
Lately, I’ve been thinking about writing more than actually doing it. To be honest, I’ve been really frickin’ busy so the whole reflecting on the goings-on […]

It’s Gilmore Girls night, yo. And I want to hype myself up more generally. GG to me! (Dave’s Francofriends seriously say this all the time so I no longer think of it in gaming terms but as Quebecois props.) Ha! But really, who am I kidding? GG only stands for Gilmore Girls tonight. The title […]

Cloud 9

Remember the 3 applications that turned into 3 interviews?
Well, they just turned into 3 offers.
I don’t usually like having to make tough decisions, but today I’m a huge fan of choice.

Gung Hay Fat Choy!

Today may be the first day of the Lunar New Year but it is already the second day of family fun. Though my aunt, uncle and parents are only flying back from Florida as I type these words, my cousins and I joined the rest of my paternal extended family for some loony Lunar New […]

Dead Week or Why the Gyms are Rammed in Early January

So, I’m still a student on vacation and all; but ’tis dead week at the office of Bamboo Star Productions. Sorry.
There are tales to tell, but that would mean that I’d have to put down the good eats for long enough to tell you about how damn delicious it all tastes. And you don’t […]

Lost and Naked in the City Again

Okay, so I’m not really lost and naked. I am in the city, though!
Safe and sound in Singapore doesn’t sound nearly as scintillating. I’m frantically packing for Hong Kong (and obviously blasting the tunes. Naked in the City is one helluva good packing song.)
Holy crap. I can’t believe I am leaving Singapore […]

I Will Not Love You Long Time

…but I do love Hanoi.
Just a quick hello from the capital of the Socialist Republic of Viet Nam. I have been busy taking in this magical place that I haven’t even had time to scribble all my random thoughts into a paper journal. And believe me, there are so many thoughts and feelings. I […]
