A Rainy Sunday in SH

Today was raining, so the air was less polluted which I really enjoyed. I woke up real late, went to the office to check on some stuff and headed out to my fav Italian place (Coffeelax) for pasta. The waitresses recognize me as a normal customer now and gave me a free salad and a cute souvenier of a booklet of how Coffee originated - it was actually written pretty good with lots of soothing and cute pictures. Afterwards I decided to spoil myself [again] and headed to the mall. I picked up a korean baggy which was considered to be pretty expensive (even in Canadian terms), oh well... consider it a gift to myself :p Afterwards, I decided to take on the local subway to save some taxi money (well; basically an excuse to make myself feel better after spending so much on the bag)... ha ha. Since today was rainy, I wasn't sweating up until I went inside the subway tram - i could feel sweat suddenly forming all over my body. Gosh, it was like sardines in there as people tried to push inward at each station. My nose with another girl was like 1.5cm apart and I could see right into her pupils (ok, so I'm a normal guy and I was kinda enjoying the feel), the girl was somewhat blushing after a while so I decided to look elsewhere only to find her boyfriend next to her staring angrily at me. So, lemme mention that 75% of the guys here are pretty slim and 'bookworm feel' (@_@), probably due to the hot weather and their 'eat-little-to-save-up-and-buy-brand-name' philosophy (same with Japanese people). So there I was, breathing on his forehead; he was pretty tense and tried to look 'big' by spreading out his arms (thus touching some old ladies around him who in turn stared at him). I was now looking a bit awkward trying not to laugh at this petite guy. He did somewhat look like a slim roadrunner on edge... ha ha ha.. Oh well, at least the ride was only 5mins before I left the subway and glanced at the girl one more time (thus, ticking off this local roadrunner once again). Ha ha ha.
PS. a big thank you to Pig - our families' technician in Toronto who help my family fix up my home computer and thus can connect with me via MSN once more. Thanks bud, I'll get you some cheap souveniers - I promise! ha ha ha.

oh, yeah, I miss the 1.5 cm distance from random girl on the street...

Here, you are lucky to get to 1.5 m to stare at a girl....

Ha ha.. your encounters with girls are hilarious... you have different interesting stories each time! So don't be the 'save money for brand name' guy otherwise I will laugh at your petite size!
Is the weather in SH used to be like the ones you described? Vancity is very hot these days reaching up to 44 and this is very unusual here!

ha ha ha... yeah; it's funny experiences; good thing i'm not 1.5cm away from a guy :p

Yeah, SH weather is still very hot! it's around 30deg and increasing... Wow, it's pretty crazy for Vancity to hit 44 wor as it is usually a very mild and stable place to live at...
