It’s 4AM, but a quick post before I go to sleep. Crazy happy dazzling day.

  • Officially confirmed to graduate. 100% confirmed! I have a convocation date! I have a graduation ceremony!
  • Sat on theΒ Game of Thrones‘ Iron Throne for all of one minute, and just for that one minute, I felt like I was on top of the world. The #GoTExhibit at the TIFF Bell Lightbox was amazing! Thank you to HBO Canada for bringing it to Toronto! For free! Shout out to my friend Abby for inviting me!
  • Went to the Ryerson University Film Festival to support a friend’s contribution to a short film calledΒ Gramps, a cute zombie movie. Shout out to Filomena who is by far the most knowledgeable person I know when it comes to beauty products.
  • Ate a late 10:30 PM Korean food dinner. It was all fried ramen and rice cakes, and it’ll make my face puffy in the morning, but it was delicious.

And the extra cherry on top?

  • Came home to watch Toronto FC go into extra time against the Vancouver Whitecaps, and win 5-3 in a penalty shootout to head to the Voyageurs Cup final!

First day of the rest of my life

First day of the rest of my life, and I cannot sleep. Actually, that sentence sums up the last five or so years of my life pretty well. But tonight – or rather, this morning – I have a good reason for not being able to sleep.

I am finally graduating.

Begin the end

I suppose it’s very fitting to start a blog today out of all days.

Today marks the last holiday weekend before the start of my last undergraduate year. Today marks the summer Transfer Deadline Day for the 2013-2014 European football season, which my all-time favourite players moved from my team for the past three years to his home team, AC Milan. And last week, I helped participate in organizing and promoting Ryerson University 2013-2014 frosh week on their various RU Student Life social media accounts, which was significant to me because I had never attended the frosh week for my first year at Ryerson University – way back in the fall of 2007. As my Instagram caption for the photo I published on last week’s first day of frosh, “Beginning the end with the beginning I never began with.”

  • I ate 21 oysters today. They were only Β£1 each! Can't believe it. Totally ate four month's worth of oysters! I just looove seafood. 😍🐚 Thank you, England, for hosting such amazing and such generous seafood festivals! ❀️
  • The "Super Mario" macaroni and cheese: Sauteed mushrooms, truffle oil, and garlic. So delicious omg! 😍 Been craving mac 'n' cheese for so long... 🀀
  • Went to a Malaysian restaurant yesterday before the World Cup game because I was craving for some warm Asian (East Asian or Southeast Asian) food in my tummy. Decided on @laksamania because I missed out on @vincentmong's and @cherylgoh15's non-existent invite to this very restaurant and to a screening of THE INCREDIBLES 2. Hashtag SMH. πŸ˜’

The photo you're looking at is a photo of the restaurant's Penang assam laksa. 🍜
  • Mango shaved ice topped with passion fruit and lychee. 🍨 Perfect summer dessert!
  • A wall of self-reflection.
  • Throwback to that hot summer day on the Copacabana beach in Rio de Janeiro where @cmyes and I watched Germany beat France in the World Cup quarterfinals. πŸ‡©πŸ‡ͺπŸ‡«πŸ‡· I will never forget that day. It was so hot, the sand was so hot, we sat on someone's random hotel bed sheets or something because the sand was too hot to sit on. I also remember getting my face painted (both sides) with a Germany flag while walking to the beach to watch the game, and then getting the other cheek painted with a France flag when we arrived. Practically ambushed by French fans who were determined to paint the flag on the other cheek even though we weren't supporting France. πŸ˜‚ Loved how loud the French and German fans were on the beach. We tried going by the MaracanΓ£ stadium earlier in the day but obviously weren't allowed even near it because we didn't have tickets. Great memories in Brazil. ❀️ #Throwback #WorldCup2014 (#TeamVarane tomorrow!!)
