LA, DOTO & Porn

31 May

Food & Porn

After a long week at work, I went downtown to have dinner with Yunjie at Tokyo Grill, a shady looking restaurant on Yonge/Wellesley, literally steps away from where I used to live. I had my doubts, but was very surprised that it was good! It tasted like home-style cooking, although I’ve never had Japanese home-cooking, so I don’t know why I think that, hehe.

Since we missed CONTACT last weekend, Yunjie and I decided to go to the nearest CONTACT exhibit, which was Morpheus’s “Porn Candids: Between Shotsgallery… I swear this wasn’t my idea, lol. xD

I won’t say more, but if you want to check it out (not sure if it’s still there or not…) the gallery is at North Bound Leather (Yonge/Wellesley).

LA Luv @Milton

Woke up at 5:30am, which is a disgusting time for any living soul to be up.

Boarded the Mason train @WW and got to Milton by 7ish, rolling into the parking lot blasting gangsta rap, no less.

What can I say?

It’s sooooooooooooooooo good to see my Liquid Assets team again! And also the newbies! I was actually worried that I wouldn’t feel as comfortable, since I wasn’t really part of the team anymore, but those worries diminished quickly. πŸ˜€

Running up and down that rolling hill for warm-up exercises, waiting in anticipation for the first race of the season, and checking out super-cut topless dbt guys really brought me back… good times, good times, haha.

Honestly though, it was such a nice day. The race site is in the middle of a conservation park, so the scenery was just tops… I never even noticed how nice it was last year because I was so focused on the races, but this year, as drummer, I was able to take in the surroundings a teensy bit more.

I ran into random buddies of mine on other teams all throughout the day, and just to be surrounded by my own LA buds, shooting the shit for 10+ hours straight, is the bees knees. πŸ™‚

Our team did well (and Melvie’s team kicked ass too, from the one race that I saw of theirs), I’m super proud of us, but I know that we have waaay more in store for Pickering and Centre Island!

We ended the day at Ajisen for ramen… by this time, we were so tired, our conversations were barely coherent. But then again, those are the best types. πŸ™‚

Doors Open

On Sunday, me, Yunjie, Lan (Tommy & Olga) checked out the Doors Open Toronto Festival. I really enjoyed Doors Open this year. Last year, I got to see a lot of exhibits, but only skimmed each one. This year, I only saw 2 exhibits but thoroughly enjoyed both of them.Β  The first one was a tour of an architecture firm’s facilities, and the other one was a tour of a green roof (they both got me pretty interested in eco-friendly design, and I stumbled across this little YouTube doojigger that’s kind of related and pretty cool). Ask me about them in person, if you’re interested. πŸ™‚

After a day of walking through Toronto, I got my patio fix for lunch, and then lounged at Yonge/Dundas Square for a little while before coming uptown.

Stripped down for a shower last night, and realized that I was HELLA TANNED. My tan lines are way intense, and it’s not even June yet. Yeah, I’m going to be black by the end of summer. xD PLUS, I woke up with bruises on my chest from banging against the drum all day. 😦 So nasty, lol.

Regardless, I can’t wait for next weekend!! Pickering regatta and perhaps hitting up the CFC Short Film Festival! πŸ˜€

Have a good week, everyone! And LA, practice hard, eat smart, and get ready to get yelled at by me again next weekend! ❀

Cheers,
