6 Things That Make Me Happy

Things has been so hectic with me since I took posession of my house so I'm still behind on comments... But I will get to them and when moving is over Blogspot will again have my full attention!

Piggy Viv Tagged me a while back on 6 things that make me happy. So I went through my pictures on my computer and came up with these:

1. Good Music
I love music. Currently I'm obsessed with this guy, Matt Nathanson, gosh he's so adorable!

One of my favourite things in life is driving with my sunroof open, windows down and hearing your favourite song on the radio.

2. Good Food
I love sushi and all seafood: shark fin soup, kind crab legs, lobsters, sea urchin, name it and I'll eat it!

One of my favourite things to snack on when I went back to Taiwan were the BBQ squid and the snails. Until I foundout that eating too many snails will cause you the runs because they carry a lot of bacteria :S

3. Good Crowd
I love my friends and family. I totally miss my sisters back on the west coast of Canada!

And I love my blogspot ladies. Honestly I spend more time reading/commenting on your blogs than talking to my own family back home!

4. Good Laugh
Gotta love those fun and silly, and of course those drunken nights.

5. Good bath on a cold night
I love coming home when it is -20 C (-4 F) outside and give myself a hot bubble bath. Yeah it gets SUPER cold here in Ottawa... Somedays it goes down to -40 C. Anyways, it's the most relaxing thing ever.

6. Good Dogs/Turbo
None of the annoying yappie ones, but the cute ones that wag their tail and just want to lick you to death! They are irresistable!

And as much as Turbo drives me crazy sometimes he's still my kid and I love him.


  1. Great pictures...looks like you have a great personality!!!

  2. love the wacky pics, heehee :) i've never tried octopus, but snail, yes. dogs also make me happy...i thought the dog in the last pic was pooping hehe.

  3. aww you are so cute!! and i love your little turbo, he can be buddies with my bunny, Roland :)

    good luck with the move in process, im sure your new house will look FABULOUS when it is complete!

  4. Turbo is sooo adorable :) And I"m with you on the non-yappy dogs... aren't they the worst? Congrats on getting the house stuff sorted and good luck with the move! Oh, and thinking of Goo Goo Dolls gets me so nostalgic. I actually saw them live once in a small club. I was front row surrounded by screeching girlies who were trying to grab lead singer's (I think his name is Jonny Reznik?) leg. Good times! ;-) Have a terrific weekend!

  5. I love that song! I love all your retro songs, they bring back all these childhood memories!
    And I agree with your list! I'm so jealous you go to visit Taiwan!! It's one of the top places I want to see.

    PS good luck with the moving stuff!

  6. High five! I love sushi and seafood esp shark fin soup hahaha

    How is Turbo now?

    Glad things are going well for you - though it sounds like you are super busy! <3 the fun photos, and <3 Turbo!! How adorable! :D

  26. Are you aware of the problem that has arisen because there is such a high demand for shark fins, if not check out this website,
    Sharks are on the brink of extinction, and a lot of species will most likely cease to exist because Shark fining is such an inefficient practice. Additionally it is a horrible and inhumane practice. It needs to stop immediately, you can do your part but not eating shark fin anymore and telling your friends about the problem,

  27. that's a cute picture of turbo.
    i'm so with you on the good food. haven't really had much seafood or sushi while in korea, so i'm missing it a lot now XD
