Thanksgiving Weekend At The Falls  

I went to Niagara Falls yesterday with my family. It's my second time going ever since I was like 9/10 years old? I don't quite remember.

Anyhow, I mainly wanted to go this time to see the night fall with the beautiful changing colour lights. However, it was very disappointing as you could barely even see the lights (they were not bright enough) and I got sick/tired of waiting because I've been there for literally the whole day from morning to late night until 8pm. Plus it was freezing cold standing nearby the falls at night so I eventually gave up and went home. However, I did get to see a beautiful DOUBLE RAINBOW during the day which was the highlight of my day spent there.


The falls during the day.



Double rainbow. It was so pretty.




The falls in the evening when the sun was setting. I think this view looks a lot prettier in the evening than during the day.




The falls at night which I waited nearly 2 hours for. Doesn't look pretty does it? It was quite disappointing as I was looking forward to see this the entire day and it did not live up to my expectations. =(

Besides going to see the falls, we also went to the casino for about 2 hours. I can't believed I got ID when I entered the casino. Really, do I not look like I'm over 19 years of age?! Played some slot games and won $10 and didn't want to play anymore before I start losing money. lol. Overall it was a pretty good day spent at the falls. We actually drove there this time and it took about 1.5 hours driving from downtown Toronto. Going home took much longer though since there was so much traffic on the highway.

I'm proud to say I have completed 1 thing from my 10 things to do 5 years from now list. I also saw this advertisement for Disney On Ice 100 Years Magic in celebration for their 100th year anniversary in the Chinese singtao magazine on Saturday. There is this discount price of paying $25 only for a $39 ticket. Offers ends on October 18th so I'm gonna call the number on the ad tomorrow and ask about the details and order tickets. I'm so excited! I'll be watching it during the Christmas holiday season. I'm making pretty good progress with my top 10 things to do in 5 years. Hopefully next year I can complete 2 more other things on the list which is a trip to New York City and hopefully a trip to Disney World too? Might be a bit too hopeful but doing either one within the next year will be good! =)

Long time no chat dear! You got some really nice rainbow pics! So, did you get that camera you wanted to buy? It's everywhere now! I went driving today along airport road all the way up to Hwy 89. Didn't see as much red leave as I've expected though.

So you plan to go to NY next year? I think I'll be heading to Vegas instead. Since Johnny-san has stated that he will produce "a show" in Vegas next year. I'm thinking it's gotta be Summary. Hope it's not Jin **no offence** unless he's doing the show with P-sama. Hehehe........... Otherwise I'll be happy heading down there to see HSJ or perhaps Sexy Zone. (^人^)

Hello and yes long time no chat! How have you been? You mean the polaroid camera...no, I haven't got that yet. I'm planning to get it maybe during x'mas or Chinese New Years when I have money for it. Yes, that camera is so popular I see it everywhere too. lol.

Ah, did you go look at fall leaves? I'm planning to do that at high park next week but I'm not sure if the leaves have turned colours yet or if they all fallen off already. lol.

Yup. I'm hoping to go on a 3-5 day trip to NYC next year or go to Disney World in Florida to stay for a week or two. I want to go to Vegas too! I didn't hear anything about Johnny-san holding a show in Vegas next year. But definitely if P-sama will be there I'd go since it's not too far away! XD Now that he's going solo, I guess he'd have more opportunities to venture outside of Japan? I'm quite worried about his solo career though since Yamapi still doesn't seem like he has enough self-confidence in himself to go fully solo yet. =/

I've been very busy at work. As you can see I haven't been blogging at all. Well, mostly there's nothing to blog about lately. Still trying to get over with the SHOCKING news, ya know?!

Anyways, I think High Park would be beautiful during this time of the year. If you do go, please share some pics here ok?!

Yeah, Johnny-san wants to have a show in Vegas. I know he'll do it when he said he wants to do it, so we'll just have to sit tight and wait! Here's the source.

It is quite shocking to a lot of people but I guess I kind of saw it coming too. They were inactive for such a long time. And then Pi also did amazingly well with his solo releases this year plus his Asia concert tour. But I didn't think he'd actually want to go full out as a complete solo artist. Well, maybe it wasn't entirely his decision but I'd continue to support him.

I will definitely share pictures if I go later on this week. =D

Oh Tokyo Hive...I have that website bookmarked too. I haven't had time to check the site recently though. I wonder who he'd bring to that show in Vegas.
