Isn’t Life Exciting?

I’m in the middle of setting up a photolog to post pictures from and stories about my adventure in England right now, but knowing how short my attention span is, it may take a while before it’s up and running so standard disclaimer applies: don’t hold your breath.

Anyway, ever since I got to Canada, I always wake up at six in the morning, and Troy won’t wake up until at least ten on weekends (what can I say, he loves to sleep) so I always have hours to keep myself entertained in the morning. Thank goodness for broadband internet. Troy has showed me how to use his stereo set and DVD player but so far, only the computer, TV, and the kitchen have peaked my interest. And no, I haven’t cooked anything from scratch since I arrived. I’ve just been having some ready-to-cook stuff from the supermarket. Yes, I’ve been bad.

Oh, if you’ve been wondering what Firda Approved™ food products are, it’s just things that I usually have back home in Indonesia. (Anyone know any supermarket chains in Canada that actually have jasmine tea?) And dude, it’s so cold here but Troy actually finds 14°C warm. Brrrrr. But at least the air here is not as dry as it was in England. And woo, there’ll be a thunderstorm on Monday! I’m so glad the weather was fine when my plane landed. I would hate to fly in bad weather.

I think we’re supposed to be going to the zoo to see some llamas (among others) today but we’ll see. Troy still has yet to wake up. Sleepyhead. And I just had a big yawn. Should I go back to sleep?


Greetings from Canada!

Yeah, yeah, I know I said I’d post from England but I just didn’t have the time to do so. I arrived in Toronto, Ontario, Canada yesterday evening. The flight from London to Toronto took about 8 hours. It didn’t feel all that long. People drive on the wrong side of the road here, but I forgive them.

Anyway, Troy picked me up at the airport in Toronto. Instead of getting freaked out to see me, he gave me a hug. That was very brave of him. We went straight to his place in Waterloo. After I had a shower, we went grocery shopping (at 9:30 PM, no less) because Troy wanted me to get stuff for me to eat. Unfortunately, there weren’t too many Firda Approved™ food products there, but I’ll live.

I really would like to write more but Troy’s computer’s keyboard is driving me nuts so I guess that’s all for now. When I’ve got used to this ergonomic keyboard thing, I’ll share some stories about my adventures in England (with pictures of the infamous Quack the Duck!). Later!


Off to England I Go!

Well, I’m leaving home soon to the airport where I’ll hop on a plane to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia (where I’ll be sitting around doing nothing for 2 hours) and then to London, England. I will occasionally post to my weblog during my 9-day stay in England from my uncle’s laptop so the next update will be from England. As for replying to emails, I’m sorry I didn’t get around to it because my last days here were so hectic! I’ll reply to you when I’m Canada, or at least try to. Until next update!


Look! An Update!

<sing>All my bags are packed, I’m ready to go…</sing>

Actually, no. I haven’t even started packing, but I’ve finally got all the visas I need in hand. I am now an ecstatic holder of UK and Canada multiple entry visas. Yippeee! In less than a week, I’ll be in England to visit my aunt and uncle, and in two weeks, I’ll be in Canada to annoy the hell out of Troy with my antics. Fun! :) And thanks to Rachel, I now have a cool digital camera that I’m going to use to visually share my adventures with you. Aren’t you excited? ;)

Well, I’m dead tired after running around all day trying to get everything done for my trips so off to bed I go! If I owe you an email, I’ll try to get back to you before I leave Indonesia on Tuesday. Until then, take care and be good!

3-Day Disappearance

Not sure if anyone noticed but went AWOL for three days because the domain had expired and I wasn’t sure I still wanted it. Now I’m sure I don’t want it, but I know I need it. You don’t have to want what you need is all I can say.

Anyway, Troy has renewed for another two years so hopefully there’ll be no more disappearance until around this time in 2006. Also, I’m going to redesign this site soon. To be honest, blogging has grown kind of old to me (I’ve been blogging since February 2000) so I’m going to experiment with a new format as the redesign progresses. Consider yourself warned. You might not like it.
