Of Ice Hockey, Hairspray the Musical, Purple Butterflies, and Elmo...



Phew! We're in February already, and soon, it would be a month since I got back to school...



Somebody wrote 'Let It Snow' in one of the residences, and somebody else added on the 'L': 'It Did'...



It's been a very hectic month, but I'm so glad because I finally finalised my ticket to come home at the end of May, which is soooo looked forward to! First stop after home~~the mamak stall! Woohoo!!!

Lol. I was practically skipping to class once I knew what date I was going home...


It's been an eventful January, so far!





Hey, a purple butterfly on the cake! Perfect or what?



I went to see my first Canadian Ice Hockey match (you're here, have to try it at least once!)...


And then just two nights ago, went to see Hairspray the Musical, courtesy of one of the volunteer organisations I'm attached to. The young girl whom I work with in the program (it's a respite program and I'm paired with a child) surprised me with a belated little birthday cake the same night, which was such a sweet gesture!





Tickle Me Elmo...



And then in between, I've been playing with Elmo, whom I adore...;) *Sheepish grin*

People whom are close to me know my love-affair with Elmo, and while on the way to Bowmanville, my puppet-troupe of two other guys actually sang me Happy Birthday in Elmo's voice (one of them can do an almost perfect imitation of the furry red monster!)...





Feet-Painting!



And then tonight was the house mural painting...There's one foot-imprint with a bigger toe than what looks normal! That's me...Lol! If I'm gonna leave my foot-imprint on the wall, it darn well will be the unique foot!

Both feet are unique :) No one else in the world could ever have them. . . :D

Haha it's so weird, here I was just thinking that in about two weeks I'll be back for another year in NZ, and you're already halfway towards your holiday! Lol! God what it must feel like, eh? Can't wait for my own stint in that period of time later this year (belum start kelas, dah nak cuti lol). Hairspray the musicall!!! I've always wanted to go to that one, it's one of my favourite musicals ever, but I don't imagine they'd have it in NZ anytime soon, we wouldn't be able to carry out the racial bit too well lol (we don't have that many, or any, black actors). My favourites are the opening and closing numbers, I'm such a nut.

Hi Clarisse,

Lol, you're right!

But my toe is extra big! Mauhaha. It's quite a sight to look at it on a mural cos there's a bigger printing on one of the feet ;)

Heheheheh...

Hey Atif,

Eh, biasalah...belum start class, dah nak cuti! Haha...I'm always looking forward to cuti, but never seem to get it...Haih...

As for Hairspray, that was one cool show. I particularly loved the scene between Wilbur and Edna (You're Timeless to Me). Aww, so cute!

Daphne Ling said...

Oh hey, Atif...Again...

Alamak, I didn't see this message of yours.

Well, Happy belated birthday to you too, then! Sorry la, mak tua here cannot remember wan...;(

Hi Uncle Jimmy,

Haha, you might have to think carefully about this one. Some people don't want to get their feet dirty, or don't want to expose their feet (belum pedicure la, didn't shave la etc etc--no kidding, I'm serious) and banyak lagi the cerita. What happens then?
