tis the season of .... holiday flu.

Before my little pictorial review of my fond winter memories of 2009 - I have to say...

that i have to be more health-alert when it comes to my sleeping habits, diet, weekly exercise.
i spent the entire day just resting, not being able to move because of my headache and sore body. when i originally planned to be extra productive on my applications, and then having some fun at night in downtown vancouver, where the streetlights/Christmas lights shine an inviting, welcoming light... Here I am instead, wearing my bum clothes, [trying] to sleep, re-watched You've Got Mail (it's now a Christmas ritual, this epic romance flick), and playing with Yueyue, my hyper dog.... and now writing this blog. i guess my mind and body need a rest from all the Christmas festivities, food, and applications (im guessing this is whats causing the headache, no doubt).

but definitely, i need to improve my health. there's really nothing one can do when one is bedridden and homebound. hey, i guess that's going on my 2010 must-do list!

So without any further ado.... here are the eventful pictures of my winter 2009:

Miss May's surprise Party organized by moi. Successful party! :) countless mini-lies and fake phone calls to make this night possible.

Halloween 2009

let's see.. what do we got here. two ninjas, Dwight from the Office, an asian dude (he's actually white, this is why it's a costume)..

And Eddie C from Twilight, feasting on a geisha, apparently.

hey hey, this is where Olympic Speed Skating 2010 is taking place. too bad they're tearing the place down after the games.

St-Paul's hospital. This is such a hopeful building.

Decorated by volunteers.

Each stars represents a donation from an organization/company who are caring and generous enough to make health services accessible to the public.

Stars of hope... no doubt!

This amazing Tart - busy with blackberries and raspberries is just about the most delicious tart I have ever tasted... for a while... for $4.99. I justify my spending on just how expensive fruit, especially berries are nowadays, and so, I allowed myself to indulge for 3 days in a row in that one week.

The ''imagine banquet'' crew. Our church's youth group [Flux] organized and hosted a banquet for parents and families with disabled children. it was such an amazing night, and just to see our efforts realized with our awesome crew was an unforgettable experience. This is us saying 'CHEERS!' with yogurt drinks bought from T&T.

And yes...! SNOWSHOEING on Mt. Seymour :)
Joel, our patient and professional guide.

Oh, he's also over 6 feet tall, but in this picture it looks like we are the same height.

now...... 6 days countdown before YEAR TWO-THOUSAND AND TEN!

Am i ready for a whole year of craziness and exciting challenges?

may-be. i will say yes for now. because according to Telus, the future is friendly.
