Learning to Let Go

I lost my beloved purple Nalgene yesterday. She was the newest of my collection; but she was my definite favourite. And the only one here with me! The only one I trusted to make the journey across the world. She even carried Canadian water that I sipped during the long plane ride.
Oh my poor […]

Why Do I Feel So Much?

Silver Linings?

I was all prepped to write something positive. You know, point to things like the Sony Bravia commercial that makes me smile and open my heart just a smidgen to Satan’s spawn.
I was going to gush about my hilarious parents who called me this morning and had me bust my guts laughing. Even though […]

No Shingles This Time ‘Round

I am struggling to figure out what to write for this essay. I have to finish it by Tuesday night if I want some breathing room in Taipei, so I’ve got to focus my thoughts a bit better. Sigh. It’ll work out. It always does. At least that is what I am telling myself these […]

Pass In Time

I’m feeling snarky today. I don’t know what it is. Maybe it’s the fact that there are lots of sucky people in this world and I hate them. Maybe.
Let’s see. Well, there’s the girl who stole and presumably consumed my dragonfruit and yogurt. Maybe she’s the same girl who always leaves the fridge door […]

Sunday Lovely Sunday

It has been raining all day long here. Even at high noon, the sun refused to peek out of the clouds. I completely understand, Mr. Sun. We’ve all known what it’s like to want to hide the day away. Thankfully, it wasn’t one of those kinds of days for me.
After I had finished catching […]

Turkey Lurkey

I missed the holiday that has the kids making turkeys out of construction paper cut-outs of their traced hands. You know, the same holiday that has kids learning how to spell this gem: CORNUCOPIA. Not Cornholio. CORNUCOPIA.
Can you tell that I was a total geek in elementary school and loved spelling tests? Oh and […]

I Hear You, Bublé

I wanna go home too.
I am overwhelmed. Thank Heavens for telecommunications. E-mail, voicemail, long distance SMS, intercontinental mobile-to-mobile calling and calls wired through hospital dispatch.
9 months of anticipation and Isabelle’s finally here! Even her crying is sweet enough to draw out immediate tears from my tired eyes. Already a heartbreaker! Just a few hours […]

23 Years Young

I want my mommy!
You know, good mums* know how to set everything right. A kiss, hug and pat from my mother always lifts the stress. My mum always says, “What’s wrong?” (in Cantonese) while making a face when I’m whining about work. Instead of chastising me for not starting earlier, she comforts me and […]

Oh, You!

There’s a female exchange student from the dairy state of America who gets a lot of flack (behind her back) about what my culture vulture cohorts deem trashy behaviour. One of the things that drive the boys crazy (and not in a good way) is the way she’ll flirt with every White boy with a […]
