- First time in weeks that
calling State farm actually didn't require n times redirecting or useless
convos - Law firm calls me (instead of
me calling them) - Got my towing fees reimbursed - Won $5 coupon for food
And to add insult to
injury. I get a ticket for this?? Really .. Sigggghhhh
Not going to put the
details here. Would just rather forget
it - it was not a fun day.
For 2 hours I sat
waiting inside the car. An hour+ minutes
by myself. Tow truck finally comes at
Apparently after hot
spells, the roads become very slick because of the oils once it cools down.
On a nicer note, the
heat is working! So we march on through
with the deal.
Will need to also
change insurance providers. Pretty
ridiculous to have to wait 3 hours for a tow truck, and 2 hours of phone calls
(5 different departments) to get this sorted out. I was already disappointed last time, this
will now be on the top of my priority list to actively move off.
A) Cut down on
drinking.Shall go no drinking until my
B) Reduce amount of
times eating out
Ready.. Set… Go!
On another note, I
almost missed my connecting flight today as I went to the wrong gate. Caused me to be all sweaty and heart beating
really fast as I trekked across the concourse.
This must be a sign that I need to stop flying for a little while.
After a morning dim
sum, went home, watched the game and waited to be picked up.Being super responsible, I had arranged to
not drive tonight.As we looked into how
far it was, we realized there was a ton of time - so we decided that we would
go and take a pit stop at ChaTime on the way there.Best choice ever!Had the Honey Aloe tea, and it was decent.Next time I will have to try their one of
their top 10 favorites.
The wedding and the
venue was really beautiful. The wedding
itself transitioned smoothly from event to event, and I found out later on that
a lot of the pieces were hand made by Ivory.
That must have took A LOT of time.
One of the best slideshow ever at the wedding…
After the ceremony,
it was photos and reception time. While
the bride and groom was out taking photos, the guests were thinking, hrmm… the
Holland and Croatia game is going on, I wonder what the score is. With people being very connected with the
world through smartphones, it turns out that it was tied and extra time was
going on. Conveniently there was a TV
playing a slideshow, conveniently it was plugged into the internet, and
conveniently there was a mouse and a keyboard… After a few clicks, voilà, the
best slideshow ever at a wedding started showing. Within minutes, 30 to 40 people were watching
this 'slideshow'.. Lol.
At some point, the
staff came by and approached the group and asked "did the bride and groom
agree to this?". Then pointing to
uncle, replied: "the dad's right here"… and then the staff smiled and
went "ok, just be sure to switch it back after" :). Hahahaha.
Thank you uncle for entertaining the guests!
And so, we ended up
being able to watch the remaining 15 minutes of the game, all the way to the
last PK when a big cheer came through.
Ever. (at a wedding).
Towards the end of
the dinner, we were asked to go outside to watch the first dance take
place. The groomsman were waving
sparklers as the song was going on. It
was nice and pretty, but then at the end of the dance, fireworks started coming
out from somewhere far away. At first, I
thought it was just some kids shooting fireworks.. But then more came, and a
song started playing, and I realized - woah, the fireworks are for this
wedding! A whole song worth of
fireworks, complete with a finale. That
was pretty cool. I feel bad for the next
couple who will be having a wedding after seeing this. It is like Hermie's wedding when he played
the piano and sang Bruno Mars live during his dinner.
festivities was pretty low key (relative to the recent outings). It was really fun to catch up and see a bunch
