PNE



On tuesday I went to the PNE with my Mom, auntie Shirley and my little brother Patrick. It was on special that day because anyone who is a member at my bank gets in for only $5.00 and can bring a friend for the same price.

There really wasnt much to do there but I had fun anyway because its alot of my childhood memories. We went to the marketplace first. There were some interesting things beign sold. I was kinda into the real hair extension sets for only 140 for a set of 7 pieces I think. Great deal, but I'm kinda broke ^^;;.

Patrick and I then went to the Barn where we saw various animals. I saw a bunny with a fur that looked like black eyeliner, and a pen with my name on it hahaha. Afterwards we went to the petting section and Patrick was amused how fat the goats were. After that, we watched the pig race. You wont believe how fast pork runs!


Visual-kei bunny!

Apperently this is my pen lol
little bro pinching goat fat
This is as close to a farm as I'll get

It was about 730 so we went to the main stadium to watch the Superdogs! I love the superdog show. It was the highlight of the evening. There was one wippit [simular but smaller than a greyhound] I love how fast and graceful it runs. [he sorta reminds me of Ryuu]


Afterwards we then walked around and ate some mini doughnuts. The rides were not inclusive so we didnt go on those, but we walked around them. Then we all went home.

Transit Adventure with Hiro



The start of my day was a 2 hour night's [morning] sleep [more like a nap =_=] and up and awake for my Pyschology Final at 830am.

The test was pretty easy and i finished in 45mins. I headed home to freashen up and drop off my bags to get to downtown by 12:00. I grabbed a starbucks on the way. I met up with Hiro and we went to Richmound on the 98bline.

We walked around Yaohan then Aberdeen then Parker. He was very happy and awe-struck on how much imported products we have and how horrible the prices are. He found his favorite brand hairpsray in Aberdeen and was soo happy he bought it. He was also very excited about Daiso.

We then headed to Parker Place to take purikura. There's a new machine that has a glittery background it was soo cool.. and yet.. so difficult to use! We chose 4 pictures and got them printed. They turned out not bad since almost all of them caught us off-guard.

We then decided to head to my place. We took the 410 and then the 22nd st. station skytrain.. then the skytrain stopped. It was stuck there for at least 30mins. It finally started moving then stopped again at edmounds. The skytrain police came and said that this train is going back the way it came and that we had to get off if we were hoping to go west.

We took the # whatever to Metrotown station [being totally squished and packed like sardines in a bus] We finally get to Metrotown and then waited in a long lineup for the 19th bus. We packed on to that one and then got off the stop closest to my house and walked to my place. We were so tierd we just sat and lay on my bed looking at magazines and photo albums and chat. [there was no where else to sit since my room is a chaotic mess.. i really didnt want to have anyone over when its like this. I havent cleaned it since April]

We finally decided to go eat dinner at around 10ish. We walked up to a place on kingsway but it was closed so we walked all the way to Metrotown because its not really worht spending the fare for just a couple stops. As well the temperature was perfect.

We ate at Daimasu, and got some Icetea and icecream on the house because a waitress there was my old co-worker. We talked some more. He said he really wants to transfer to Vancouver because its much more fun than L.A.

After we finished eating we walked back to my place so he can pick up his stuff and head to the skytrain before it closes.

And so concludes our little translink Adventure~

TENKA Event Yukata Party



This has got to be the most clubbing fun I've had since I got back from Japan. I've actually been invited to Tenka events several times but for some reason i never ended up going. I'm glad I went this time!

The day started pretty slowly as i made my way to vikis and got there around 6. We prepared and took us awhile. Viki's friend was supposed to come with us but was busy so we bussed there instead. We were quite late but of course nothing ever starts on time so we were early LOL.

When we got into the club, we sat and waited for the rest of the people to trickle in. A guy then came up to me and said "Hey.. you're Shannon aren't you?" LOL apparently it was a Facebook person I was talking to. haha too funny. Byron bought us a round of drinks and we chatted it up for while. The place was getting pretty full so I decided to walk around.

As i was wandering around I found Haruhiko! I haven't seen him since we hanged out with Jamieson in Shibuya~ Such a party guy. I think hes only in town for maybe a week or so. He bought us a round of drinks and dammnn was that one ever strong >w< ! Up near the bar a guy named Cliff recognized Viki from Churchill and I recognized him from Kingyo! He was the one sitting next to us at the bar with another gyaru girl. He offered drinks too but Haru was already doing the round. I met his 2 friends Ryota.. and.. I think i forgot the other guy's name. They are both from Ehime~ I told them i knew where that was and they were really surprised and happy [its on shikoku island] We danced for a bit and on my way to the washroom I ran into Jamieson! Again, i havent seen him since we partied in Shibuya~ I only briefly said hi. After some more dancing I decided to talk to Haru. Viki stayed close to me she was really shy for some reason. So I went to ask Haru how has he been doing and LOL ANOTHER round of shots! this one is stronger than ever! The other two girls who had the same were saying ATSUI! ATSUI MAJI!~ and we chased it down with some cola. Cliff was around too and again too late for the drinks I think I had enough since i didnt eat anything since lunch. XD... I met the other two girls, Emiko and Kaori? They were really fun to talk to and we danced with them for quite awhile. I also met another girl named Mei and she was singing for this event =3 she was so kind too. We should club again sometime. Many photos were being taken and im grinning like an idiot and my japanese is rolling off my tongue with more easier~ yup I was drunk haha. The Yukata was quite restrictive which gave me an excuse to dance more lightly which was nice but eventually it felt a bit tight or I felt a bit tired so I stood off to the side and watched others dance. Behind me there was a guy who smiled at me as i did the same. (I'm always smiling like crazy when im drunk) His name was Munehiro. We chatted quite a bit mostly in Japanese and watched the dance performances. They were soo good. It was getting hot so we went outside to talk. It was 1236 by then so I decided it was time for me to head back so to catch the last train. Hiro's friend Tomo was also heading the same way as I was so I grabed my bag, said goodbye to viki and headed off. Hiro didnt know how to get to the Oak bus stop so we walked him there and tomo and i went to the train station after. I was talking to Tomo for a bit and somehow it lead him to ask about my ex and yea breifly explained he disappeared. He said heyy why not hiro? I think you two make a cute couple LOL. I was laughing. He said that Hiro said he thought he was very lucky that I talked to him. I asked why is that? He said because Hiro thinks you're very cute. Aww~ so adorable.

花火





Today Shawna and I went to English bay to watch the fireworks. I was quite late in meeting with her because it took me an hr to tie my obi -_-lll

I finally arrived around 5ish and we got ready for the fireworks. We then get a text that neither Bevan nor Viki can come thus angel and friends will not be with us either and link wasn't picking up his phone.

So it was just the two of us for a very long 4hr wait for the fireworks to start. We just fliped through alot of photos in our cameras to pass time and think of songs and sing along to them LOL

When the fireworks started it was soo exciting. I haven't watched fireworks for awhile. LOL China as always have some very unique shaped fireworks and everything was just amazing.



Afterwards, to my surprise the crowd wasnt too hard to get through. We were hungry so we stopped by Kingyo to eat some dinner. We ordered salmon cappacio, some spring roll thing, and ebi mayo. Our chef Kouji was very enthusiatic and very fun to talk to. For somethign speical he made something for us. He made spicey chicken wings with a really pretty message on it. Your happiness is my happiness. Do you believe in love at first sight? It was so adorable.

We agreed to exchange contact so we can teach eachother language. The meal was absolutely wonderful and we made a new friend =3
