Tis me and Iâ€™ve just moved from Danang to Saigon and let me tell you, itâ€™s been a long time coming! The weather is much more agreeable and Iâ€™m just thrilled to be here 😉 You wonâ€™t ever see me complaining b/c I just canâ€™tâ€¦â€¦
Hereâ€™s the dizzy tizzy that Iâ€™ve just been through:
4 HEAVY bags on an airplaneâ€¦I got my fave gal, Cathy (motorbike), on the train and weâ€™ll be reunited tomorrowâ€¦I wonder how sheâ€™ll cope with SGNâ€¦.
My dad called me CHEAP which propelled me to buy a new cell phone. Twas true that my old one kinda super sucked and was dying since last year but I just didnâ€™t want to buy a new one. This new Nokia is pink, not my fave colour, but it was b/w rose and black and all that know the real Cathy know that I canâ€™t do plain Jane practical and that I must use some pizzzzzzzaâ€¦.no, make that pizzzzzzzzzzazzzzzzzzzz! = pizzazz (câ€™mon laugh!)
Vernon and Cathy say Iâ€™m not funny! Vrai ou faux?
My dear pal Mimi organized a PARTAY to celebrate my move among other things and it was so much funâ€¦.Itâ€™s been absolute ages but I had a terrible post-party hangoverâ€¦Iâ€™m still not all recovered and itâ€™s been almost 24 hrs but I did meet new ppl in my new city and reconnect with old pals and dance around and have fun and just realize how gosh darn lucky I am to be doing my thang in Ho Chi Minh! Woot woot!
Big hits of the last day:
–found my hip hop class and itâ€™s taught by a Canadian Viet Kieu (overseas)!
–Backstreet Boysâ€¦who else do you turn to for some comforting classic hits?
–FRIENDSâ€¦I feel like I have a million and compared to my previous (sad-ass) existence in DN for the last couple of months, itâ€™s true!
–street food rite outside the house!!! OMG! This beats my old evil neighbours and funeral parlour hood by a thousand-fold! Hoang thanh = wontons and noodle goodness accompanied by Dijon mustard? ????? ????? Whatever!
–my FRENCH SPEAKING landlady! I think after paying some serious dues in DN, my life in SGN is rocking and Iâ€™m reaping some mega benefitsâ€¦yea for blessings and this whatever comes around goes around kind of phenomenon thatâ€™s happening to me rite now ïŠ There are mountains and valleys in my life for sure and Sgn is a lovely high for now.
Seriously I could go on and on but I wonâ€™tâ€¦.
Last words: MY DAD ROX; MY MOMâ€™S IN TOWN SOON; and my sisters forgot the new music for me in Vancouver. Itâ€™s ok though cuz Iâ€™m getting some more LUSH!
Yayayayyayayayayayyayayayayayaya! Luv u!
