I've been roaming around..


(*Warning* Picture Heavy entry!) Being the unlucky person that I am, I was down with food poisoning/stomach flu over the weekend. Let me tell you, it was by far the most awful feeling in the world. I would rather do acupuncture and have needles stuck in my body a million times over than go through that again. With that being said, I finally managed to get out of the house after being stuck at home for 2 awful days, while it was beautiful out :( I'm sure some of my fellow Vancouverites got a good dose of sunshine over the weekend! Because now comes the infamous rain again. Managed to catch a movie (Channing Tatum , anyone?) over on Friday with Pearlyn, and headed downtown as well to waterfront for some Olympic " sightseeing ".



Had the food poisoning, (Pearlyn, once again, SO sorry for being sick over the weekend!! and that I wasn't a good host because I spent most of the time in the washroom instead! Raincheck?) and fast forwarding to Monday, I met up with Kim and Andrew for some dim sum as well as a photowalk.



Every time I take the skytrain, and on the way to downtown.. I pass by Broadway station, then Main street, Science World, before alighting at Granville Station. Well in between Broadway and Main Street, there are various train tracks that are not in use. So I thought, hey, that makes an awesome photography location. But.. that location is apparently prohibited. On that note, I have a funny story to tell. Andrew was the first to explore, being the guy and all.. while Kim and I stepped back, contemplating whether it was even okay to walk in there. Anyways, Andrew ended up calling us cowards, and Kim responded with this. "We're not chicken, We're Singaporeans. We just follow the law. " For those who don't get the joke, well Singapore is a fine city. Literally. We have the most outrageous laws ever. Including our infamous no gum chewing policy. And because of those laws, I guess we've become what you would call, "law-abiding citizens". The majority of us are not law breakers, thus making it a very very safe country. (Even at 4 in the morning, it's okay for me to walk out of my house to go grab a bite alone.) Anyways, anything for photography right? lol. We ended up stepping in. Yeah I'm a bad ass like that. Hahaha jk.












And then it was onto the Sochi House (Russia) @ False Creek.

I hope your feeling better! food poisoning sucks!
I had it a few weeks ago, the only good thing is that I lost a few pounds. :)hah!

WHAT!? A no gum chewing policy!? Crazy...

Hope you're recovering from nasty food poisoning. Seems like everyone is getting that recently. =/ Two of my close friends had it about a month ago. My little brother and bf had it last week. Yikes!

Looks like you had a fun day out though. Bright and sunny! =]

@Trina
Thank you! :)

@Jess
Thanks hun! and I am feeling much better :) SO glad it's over haha. Yup that's the only plus side to it. I don't think the pain is worth going through though :( LOl yeaaa took me awhile to be like okay lets go in hahaha. i'm such a coward. You totally should :) Go when I'm there! I'll show you around, and hook u up! They've laid down the strict rules, but I don't think they're as strict as what most people perceive it to be. It's a very clean city because of the rules though. VERY clean haha. Nope the gum thing is forreal! Sad but true. Booo midterms :( Good luck! I'm sure you'll do well :) xx

@Serena
Yup! Haha kinda odd eh? We even have pee detectors in elevators so that when people pee you apparently get caught LOL. Oh no, I hope they're better! Yea the bug has been going around lately :/ .. It had its rounds within my family as well. And yes I did have a fun day out :) Great weather = Happy me haha!
