perfect days start with dimsums.
me and kym decided to grab lunch chinese style and dimsums are the way to go. i suggest you guys go to T&T by Marlborough, there’s a chinese restaurant there that serves this amaaaazing rice crepes shrimp thigies which just melt in your mouth like heaven (3rd panel of the pic).
some eyecandy sweets at the T&T bakery
we had to stop by the bakery to get Alliana something to eat before we head to the Science Centre. we love looking at the cute sweet delicacies they have there, they’re just too pretty to eat. XD
sweet treats from Yann Haute Patisserie
been wanting to get some French Macarons from this place for a long time now. we had to stop by downtown to get some. the patisserie is a quaint little yellow house (a real house) in 4th Street. it’s a tad little bit hard to locate but it’s all worth it. the macarons are delectable unfortunately, i had to share.
gone geeky at the New Science Centre
who knew me, Kym and Alliana had something in common (aside from love for food)? we all love to go to science museums and go stargazing on our days off. lol. but because the weather here in Calgary sucks monkey ass balls, we didn’t get to see Saturn for Astronomy night. there were a couple of neat presentations and live demo about saturn but that really didn’t make up for actually viewing the planet on a telescope. but still, there’s so many fun activities to do in the Science Centre, learning is just a bonus. too bad we didn’t go earlier.
i’d love to visit there again with family and friends. 20bucks is worth every penny even though we didn’t get to go star-gazing. plus, it’s a nice, cheap place to go on a date. ;)
tell me about this silence.
this lingering absence that slows down my heart.
as volatile as ether,
we ignite the fire then we’re gone.
hello from the mildly chilly Calgary. so far we’ve been having bouts of rain showers every now and then. but i’m just glad we get sunshine on most days, especially last weekend. we were able to bask in +20°C, which was definitely a shorts and flipflops weather.
also, i’ve been working casual (on-call basis) in my previous job as a unit clerk. they were kind enough to give me my job back even though i was gone for almost a year. it really is nice to be back. when i’m not at work, i’d be out shopping and hanging out with friends and family or stay cozy at home doing the usual house chores which don’t seem to feel like chores anymore.
i’m really excited this Sunday for Calgary Comic Expo with Kym, Anthony and Stephen. it’s to make up for missing out on the private screening of the Avengers with the CBG people this Saturday. it’s a geeky dream of mine to dress-up for comicons so i’m looking for Batman costumes. i have this untapped love for comicbooks especially Batman which may have been unleashed when RM got me into the Comic Book Group on Facebook. they’re really a fun, intellectual bunch abounding with comic book passion.
oh. on a completely unrelated note,
we got a schedule for the Canadian Citizenship exam this May 17th, after we pass and have the oath-taking, my Filipino citizenship will automatically be revoked.
that’s all peaches and gravy but i still have to be back in the Philippines for my second year of school. since i will be a full-pledged Canadian, i won’t be able to use my Philippine passport for travel and if ever i will be able to obtain my Canadian passport, I will only be allowed to stay in the Philippines for 2 months.
so unless i fly to Vancouver to get a dual citizenship and reclaim my Filipino citizenship before my flight on June 11th, it’ll be a problem going back and forth to both countries and i wont be able to continue my studies in the Philippines without paying outrageously expensive foreign student fees. XD
so yeah, i don’t know. i’m just hoping everything will work out eventually. right now, the best thing to do is to kick back, relax and soldier on.
i’ll be sending out some postcards soon. you can inbox me your address if you’d like for me to send you some love (non-eligible for friends/family residing in Calgary). :)
had to make a quick comic for Janiner’s anniversary gift for her boyfriend, Om.
i haven’t done comics before so i had no idea how to come up with the drawing style.
i’m glad everything worked out in the end even with so little time.
kinda sucks i didn’t get to colour it though. :<
happy anniversary, Janine and Om! hope you guys last a lifetime. :)
HOME SWEET BED
hello! so this is my sweet sweet bed. do you realize what i had to give up studying in the Philippines? this amazingly soft bed and cozy bedroom are not easy to part with. now that i’m finally home, i’ve been rolling in these sheets and sleeping like a baby.
i’ve also missed these lovely people:
“home is where janine and ariane is” lol. INDEED. :)
yummy treats and sweets from family and friends
and of course, what is coming home without SHOPPING? :)
i got a satchel from Forever21, red purse and panda USB from Urban the other day.
this is indeed a wonderful welcome. :)
jaze is back in canadia. first Tim’s in 10months! i didn’t win the rrroll up the rim though. i am disappoint. :(
still stuck at YVR. flight to YYC is tomorrow (8hours from now). my friend who lives here is letting me stay for the night.. so pooped. i didn’t sleep the entire flight. @__@
i can’t wait to be back in calgary and sleep in my own bed.
me and keaena went shopping at Greenhills for pasalubong for the family and friends (mostly for kym). lol. i think i got 85% of the things they asked me to buy.
i can’t believe i’m leaving for YYC tomorrow! seriously, my luggage is still sitting there waiting for me to finally start packing. i have so much shit to do like pick up the package from overland and the forms from addweal, get waxed, get nails done and hopefully squeeze in a haircut (highly doubt it though). i’m also supposed to meet keyks and mr.rocketman for a gelato at greenbelt later today.
im keeping my fingers crossed that i get everything done before i leave.
i have not had decent sleep in days now. this, folks, is procrastination at its finest.
now i fill the gaps in my days with sleep.
how many times did i fall asleep writing you letters?
words cannot contain its honesty.
my mind tires and retires in slumber.
no need to count sheeps,
the memories that kept flashing one by one
is enough to send me to dream.
