Do I really apologize for NPY’s photo of the day? Not really. He sent me a different one but the focus was clearly the Felions, the BC Lions cheerleaders. Then his colleague took this picture and passed it on. They know that the girls are all I’m watching whenever I have to watch a BC Lions game, live or otherwise. The guys stuffed themselves with dim sum at a local joint before heading to Empire Field for the early afternoon game. I’m glad they could take in the last game to be played at Empire Field and Lions beat the Argos to boot.
I’m hoping that he’ll get tickets to the opening game at the new BC Place or whatever it is now called.
It is not the closest Asian supermarket for her and reserved for “special occasions” so I was touched and excited that Lil Sis’ took me to Foody Mart at Warden and Steeles. I heard a few years ago how some newcomer supermarket(s) instigated a price war with the established supermarkets like T&T. The market was hopping even at 9 p.m. on a Saturday. Lil Sis wondered why and we joked about the love of playing mahjong and karaoke that are more nocturnal kinda activities. It could also have been that Mid-Autumn Festival is just around the corner which means a lot of cooking and ceremonial foods are required.
It could also just be the scale of Toronto. It’s that much bigger. I’ve been marveling at the huge condo complexes like Circa Town Centre that we drove by. The suburbs of Vancouver do not need or would not deign for such a monstrously large development…. Since my life really isn’t so big, I often conclude I don’t need to live in a city with a Foody Mart. T&T will do fine. A city with just 2 million can do as opposed to a city with 5 million. But, darn it, I will not ever think that it is enough. I will not get so complacent to think it’s the limit of what I can handle.
* NPY’s Picture of the Day. While I’m in Toronto and he is in Vancouver, 3400km away, we will try to share with each other (and consequently this blog) pictures that capture our day.
On this day..
- Good to be in Vancouver - 2006
