Champagne Goes To: Victoria, BC, Canada

I’m currently on vacation in Victoria, BC where I spent my teenage hood. The thing about not being in the same city as your parents is that you end up spending all of your vacation time and money visiting them instead of going somewhere fun.

Victoria isn’t a bad city, it’s green and it’s clean but it’s small (population ~ 330,000) and boring compare to Vancouver, Toronto or Montreal. It’s great to be here for a day or two but not any longer than that. You can only stare at trees and the ocean for so long. Victoria is also made up of about 88% non-visible minorities so there isn’t really any good ethnic restaurants either. But hey that’s why I'm dropping by Vancouver later this week!

I’ve also been tagged by lovely ladies adin_22
& .maitai & Dana!

My Roley!! I guilt tripped by dad to buy it as my grad present since I didn't get X mas present EVER as a kid LOL.

Favourite pair of shoes you keep going back to over and over, even though your closet is overflowing with a zillion others?
My Oscar the Grouch slippers at home.

Name one thing you cannot live without.
I feel that I’d get raped and mugged if I don’t have my Blackberry with me.

I’m on Vacation so ANYTIME :D

  8. :) Thanks for the tag. How long are you staying in Victoria for? You're right about spending all your time with the family instead of going out. Even though I live 100 miles from my family, I always hang out with my siblings over my friends. I feel bad for neglecting my friends, but I love my siblings :) YAY U have the brown speedy25. I have the pinkish-purplish one !

  9. I want to visit Vancouver!! I hear they have a lot of good sushi places... mmmmm :)
    "I feel that I’d get raped and mugged if I don’t have my Blackberry with me." - haha I would think you'd be more of a target for mugging if you DID have a blackberry on you

  14. Haha yeah, I used to wrestle in high school...I got back to help out my old team every once in a while. :)

  15. :O I loveee Victoria, BC! It's sooo beautiful there, it's like an ideal place to settle and retire there. I recognize that building, The Empress! I remember that building the most because of its antique architecture. So Victorian!
    Beautiful, clean dock with those vendors on the sidewalk... the rustic ambiance of the town... the crisp summer breeze that rolls... everything! I especially liked the Buchart Gardens, but everyone who's been in Victoria have visited that place!

  16. I really want to go to canada one day. my friend said it's best to go on the fall season too see all the maple leaves falling :D nice pics!! I hope you are having lots of fun!
