5 Year Anniversary - A New Beginning?

It passed by pretty quickly... can't believe it's now been 5 years since I've been here.

Tonight is the first time I celebrated my 5 years with someone. I have to say - It was a pretty fun night. Had some yummy Japanese cuisine, then I was to get a suprise.

It was a cute surprise ... especially since at some point I realized where we were going and we were walking in the wrong direction. I was told to dress in orange, turns out I was suppose to look a like a space needle (that had an orange top on).

5 years later... a new beginning?

Quick Trip to Toronto: Friday Drink Day

Today woke up, then hung out with Law for the most part of the day.  We started eating little dragon dumplings, then migrated to a bar to watch the Euro with some Rickard's White.  Then after I got my Rickard's White fit, we moved on to the Heineken big bottle specials.  Beautiful day, beautiful scenery, was a pretty chillaxing atmosphere. 

A couple drinks in, then we headed to meet up with his bro for some Korean food at Leslie and Finch.  Good times there too and that snail was really yummy (though really expensive!).  Alex also came all the way up from downtown to meet up - which is pretty awesome.

Ended the night with yet more drinking.  3 drink limit.. broken...

Quick Trip To Toronto: Cousins' Convo

Red eye-ing in last night, today woke up bright and early (6am-ish early) to go see my cousin's convocation. She's now a PhD!!!  Waaaaaaa....  Soooo smark!
I think it was alot more fun watching hers than showing up to mine :).

Got to play in her lab with dry ice and wearing those lab robes. One of these days I gotta get those pictures and videos from it. Pipettes and dry ice is super fun.

After lunch at a pho place (reminded me of Waterloo hahaha). Took cous's car and drove back. The drive back was pretty tiring (and semi dangerous). Was falling asleep after the first 30 minutes or so. So actually ended up pulling off the highway into a gas station and took a quick 15 minutes nap before continuing the trek. With no A/C, no music, and most importantly, no speeding... it was a tough ride. Also experienced the rush hour traffic jam again... definitely don't miss that!
