Oh my gosh! In exactly a week from today, I will have been in Canada for a year...Yeah, you heard it right...A year!
My summer classes are coming to an end in a week, and as much as I look forward to it being over because I want a break, I know that every week that passes is one step closer to the cold returning. Summer is just perfect, because although hot, it's not as hot as Malaysia!
One of my professors, Dr. Liana Brown, treated us (her lab members) to lunch just before the weekend. It was nice meeting the other people in the lab. As much as I am looking forward to break, I know I will miss the labs for some peculiar reason, lol. And because this world is just sooo small ;), it turns out one of the lab members, Davood, happens to have studied in Malaysia for a couple of years (and he gives the thumbs-up for Malaysian food!)!
Clockwise from left: Davood, Andrew, Meaghan, Dr. Liana Brown and me...
Sigh...As much as I miss family, home (my doggies, bed and Scooby-Doo pillow!), friends and food, I must say I am happy here--it's just a different world altogether...Thank heavens for that, otherwise I will be very miserable throughout the year!
Canada is really beautiful (except when they have garbage strikes!), and here's just a few snapshots to take you through the different seasons. Who will believe it's the same country?!?
Winter! Brrrr...Canadian winters are brutal! The building in front of you is Otonabee, the same building shown in the Summer picture...
Wow, four seasons captured in picture...
In the meantime, my exams are this week, so I'll disappear for a while. After that, it will be a short break before I return to another 8 months of full-time study (whoa, talk about testing my stamina)...Thankfully, my courses next year sound interesting enough. Heck, one of them is the study and analysis of dreams (Let's see if I can lucid dream... ;))!
