I just read my last post and... I realized why I always need to proofread my written work. My English is crap! I guess being a university student doesn't mean much. Worse part is... Communication majors mainly write papers. *facepalm*

No more writing. I'll be one of those bimbos and just let lyrics speak for me.

"Today was a fairytale
You were the prince"

"You told me I was pretty when I looked like a mess"

"You've got a smile that takes me to another planet
Every move you make everything you say is right"

"All that I can say is it's getting so much clearer
Nothing made sense until the time I saw your face
Today was a fairytale"
--Today Was a Fairytale, Taylor Swift, Valentine's Day Movie Soundtrack

...okay, that turned out more sappy than expected. Oops.


Valentine's Day & Chinese New Year

Sunday, February 14, 2010
I can go on and on about my thoughts on Valentines Day. However, I have a paper to write so my post will be condensed. Valentines day, in a nutshell, is a cute holiday that has been hegemonized by our consumerism society.

Anyway, despite this, I enjoyed a simple day with him. He picked me up early (my kind of early) in the morning to go out for breakfast. When I walked out to his car, he surprised me with handmade roses in a vase. I love presents that don't die. Plus, he actually surprised me. Yay! Then we head down to our usual breakfast place and enjoyed a yummy meal to start off our day. Prior to the hockey game, we made a detour to purchase some pastries for dessert tonight. After the game we had just enough time to grab decent seats to watch Valentine's Day (the movie). Yes, it's corny to watch Valentine's Day on February 14th, but I like corny. He dropped me home after the movie for my Chinese New Year dinner with my family. We enjoyed a delicious hot pot dinner while watching the Olympics. Okay, it's not good to watch television while eating dinner with the family. However, we didn't let the television distract us from carrying on conversations! Watching Canada receive her first gold metal on home soil was amazing.

Valentine's Day, Chinese New Year, and Vancouver 2010 Olympics happening at the same time? Sure, that's great, but spending time with my family and him? Now that's golden. I don't need a designated day to love the people in my life.

Happy Chinese New Year?

Tuesday, February 9, 2010
So this year, both side of the family decides to celebrate Chinese New Years early. Por-por on the 12th and Ma-ma on the 13th. Because of that, I took both days off work. Por-por asked me to take the day off too. Just a side note, I've been busy the last few big family dinners due to prior commitments (and their last minute planning).

I just came home today and mommy tells me that we're not having dinner on the 12th anymore because one of my cousins are busy. Thanks.


Olympics Opening Ceremony Rehearsal

Monday, February 8, 2010
Worked at the first rehearsal today. Although my shift was from 12pm to 9.30pm, the sore feet was worth it. I had a chance to watch some of it in the lower bowl and it was amazing. I can't wait to watch the whole thing (on tv) on Friday. It was honestly a once in a lifetime opportunity. When else would we have another Olympics and would I ever be able to afford the tickets (hopefully someday...)? It was breath-taking and I appreciated every second of it.

My job is uninspiring. My pay is minimal. My uniform is two sizes too big.

...but I am excited to be part of the Olympics.
