What is this tuition BS, the last time I checked, education is meant to be all around us.
Things that my trip to China and Hong Kong made me realize
1. The air is insanely fresh in Toronto. You can actually smell the freshness. Literally.
2. People are much more sincere in Canada. It’s true what they say, Canadians are nicer. Cool eh?
3. Canadians are very respectful human beings.
All I can say is, Canada is my natural habitat and I can’t imagine living any where else in the world.
Would it be rude if I scratched my butt?
Hello world, I’m currently in Tianjin, China!
China is honestly FULL of people. Everywhere you go, it’s people. On the subway, at the train station, in the taxi line, they’re everywhere!
Also, should you ever visit China, here’s my word of advise: check your manners at the door, because you won’t be needing them in this country. The subways are SO packed, there’s no way you can get on without stepping, trampling or pushing someone. Want to pick your nose in public? Go ahead. Feel like taking your feet out for a breeze? Please do, and pick at the dead skin while you’re at it. Having said all this, it does feel great to fix a wedgie in public, knowing that no one will judge you ;)
Anyway, that’s it for now, more from me when I discover another wifi hotspot.
Hear that? That’s the sound of my exams finishing.
For the first time in about three months, I went shopping today! AND got Michael’s new album, of course. But here’s a highlight of how great my day was:
1. Bought and fangirl-ed all over Michael Buble’s new album
2. Got two beautiful dresses from H&M for a steal
3. Enjoyed my first Passion Fruit Tea Lemonade of 2013
4. Organized my chatoic life and crossed things off my to-do list
5. You’re currently reading the blog of a VP Operations
6. Exams are done, bitches.
7. Watching Gangster Squad tonight, guilt free
8. Michael Buble
Who’s Lovin’ You - Michael Bublé, To Be Loved
The minute I’m done exams, I’m running to an HMV and getting this bamf.

How I think my paper is coming along
How it really is coming along:
So avoid using the word ‘very’ because it’s lazy. A man is not very tired, he is exhausted. Don’t use very sad, use morose. Language was invented for one reason, boys - to woo women - and, in that endeavor, laziness will not do. —Dead Poets Society
New Girl - Kryptonite
In one of the earlier episodes of quirky TV series, New Girl, Jess finally realizes that she loves the random guys (and Winston whom she just met) she met on the Internet while searching for an apartment, post-Spencer. This scene never fails to make me melt - these are great guys, and yes Schmidt, that includes you too. The fact that the guys put on Jess’ silly hats to prove a point to Spencer, they’re amazing.
Even as early as episode 2 of the first season 1, we see this undying chemistry between Nick and Jess.
Not sure if I’m amused or appalled
As I check my Twitter feed today, I notice this ridiculous trend - Condom Challenge. Seriously, WTF?! I don’t know if I’m amused at the fact that such a menial topic is trending, to the point where journalists at Huffington Post felt the need to report it. Or if I should be appalled that teenage girls snorting latex up their noses is actually trending?! The excitement does not come from sniffing a piece of rubber, it’s the fact that they’re snorting a condom, a critical item of sex, which makes it rather sexual and in touch with their horny selves.
I fear for the future and weep for what our so-called education system has entrenched in the minds of these idiots. These dimwits are supposed to run our society?! You guys should know better, don’t be stupid.
I’m disgusted. Check it out for yourselves:
Red Letter Day
Nice try Kirkland, Jane is much smarter than that.
Also, what happened to Tom Volker?
And Rigsby makes me melt. Him and Cho should just get married and call it a day.
Why Sally Draper is a BAMF
I took the liberty to go through the Season 6 premier again and note down all the sassy things that Sally Draper says. She is definitely one piece of work. But I love her, here’s why:
“Isn’t someone going to say something? Betty got a ticket.”
What kind of child calls their own mother by her first name? And this isn’t the first time she’s done it. Throughout the premier, we see that Sally constantly refers to her own mother as Betty. Maybe it’s her way to contest against her mother, truly a characteristic of a teenage girl going through puberty.
“First of all, I don’t know why you’re counting my meals. Second of all, she left for Juilliard.”
Upset that her oh-so-mature friend Sandy is gone, Sally is left alone to contest against her mother. What Sally really is thinking - fat Betty is fat and she doesn’t her mother’s dieting habits inflicted on her.
“She acts like she’s 25 because she uses tampons.”
Sally is at the stage where she wants to rid of her mother, saying “grown up” things that can hopefully convince her mother. We see a desperate attempt from Sally to be truly considered a grown up.
“What happened to you?”
This is probably one of the most sassy things that Sally said all episode. Mid way through her phone conversation, she hangs up just so she can snark at
her own mother Betty’s new hairdo.
Last but not least, this:
