weddings and that

I was fortunate enough to be invited to a Chinese wedding about a month back. It was interesting, to say the least.

Not only was good old rice tossing replaced with colorful foam spraying, it was performed as an act of war between the bridesmaids and groomsmen. There were a lot of rockets going off, minor fireworks and in the end the four bridesmaids protecting the bride (me included) were coughing so hard from the smoke attack that we had to surrender and let the groom in to take away his bride.

Crazy.

As the day went on the lovely bride changed into her traditional Chinese dress (which I unfortunately didn’t get a good shot of due to stupid rain) and went around to houses in the groom’s neighborhood to light incense and other things as part of a buddhist ritual. She looked stunning in it indeed, but seemed quite stressed really. Unfortunately at that point I had to leave, so I actually missed out on the best part – the dinner. Though I was relieved to finally be able to jump into a shower and wash all the sticky glitter and confetti off me, I was slightly bummed out. Hai ah.

And again, here I am, all hungry >.<

a touch of nature

1. Standing inside a fountain in some park. Kind of. 2. At the aviary. 3. You can find dem in da park.

I miss blogging. And it really isn’t (as before mentioned) that I’m constantly busy. I just. I don’t know. I’ve got so much to write, but at the same time when I do sit down and stare at this empty box – I have nothing.

Writer’s block.

It’s been a bitch to me in school work too. I can’t say I’m proud of my latest products in writing assignments. All I’ve been able to produce is mediocre contemplations on whatever, and even such a thing has cost me a full night of sleep to produce. Well, except for that one hour I passed out in the pantry. Good times.

At least here, there’s no pressure. I can just have a keyboard frenzy and no one would judge. Right?

I overslept this morning, and missed quite a vital lecture on advertising and that. Lucky I have a presentation due on it in two weeks. Not. To cheer me up, I just had a cup of hot cocoa and a bowl of oatmeal. Mmmnomnomnom. Now the bed is giving me this “Don’t you wanna come back and cuddle?” look. Sometimes we stray, indeed we do.

Hope to see you soon la.

another change of plans

So maybe I’d like to try falling in love for a change.
