Merry Christmas to You All – S10E11

Impossible December 23 Ugly Xmas Sweater

I want to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas.

On Tuesday, it was a privilege to be a guest co-host for Friends With Benefits, which is hosted by Tonya Price. It was an impromptu appearance as I decided to give her a Christmas gift in the form of Hudson’s Bay’s Tres Canada Canvas Tote Bag.

On her radio show, she went through her Top 5 Non-Canadian music of 2014. There were some Christmas music as well.
You can check out the radio show by going to this link.

As an added bonus from below, here’s an audio from last year’s Christmas audio and joined with Lauren Bridle as we played the favourite Christmas songs. It was part of the year-end countdown from 2013 for extra time.
In 2014, there’s a new version of Do They Know It’s Christmas by Band Aid 30. In the audio from last year, it’s the original version.

Happy Holidays!

PROMdemonium 6 – S09E28

PROMdemonium6-7
Prom was all the rage this weekend and it’s not the high school type. My former colleague had her prom, Journalism style and she’s finishing up her studies. Elsewhere, I had the opportunity to check out PROMdemonium, held at the Glebe Community Centre. It’s their sixth year holding it and was sold out.

What is the event? PROMdemonium is a fun-filled event and is a fundraiser for local communities. As their website states, it’s a radical, community-oriented, gender-bending, bike-loving, enviro-humping, queer-diggin, slow dancing, big dress wearing prom that you never had. People reliving their high school prom but they can dress extravagantly and elegantly as possible.
Funds to PROMdemonium goes out to causes and organizations which bring out initiatives in social, economic and environmental justice.

It was my first time attending the event and I was there taking photos and carrying two cameras. One was a DSLR camera and the other being a Polaroid. It’s nice to see people be surprised in getting an instant photo. I posted a photo over at my Facebook Page. I didn’t expect to bump into people I know and be mistaken to another person. There was some great music played and it ranged from the classics of the 80s to the present. There was Drake played at the prom and some could groan about it. Photos from the event are posted below.

For those who know me, I rarely dress nice as it was prom, I attempted to do selfies and slightly failed at it. You will see it below the photo section. I have been enamoured with products from Hudson’s Bay very recently. I’ve been liking their famous multi stripe. Before heading to the Glebe for PROMdemonium, I went to Hudson’s Bay and picked up an iPhone case by Gelaskins and a Chambray multi stripe bow tie. As least, I was being fashionable.

Overall, I had a great time and I’m slowly getting back into the Ottawa events scene. To whoever got the Impossible photos, hope you liked them! Continue reading

Happy Birthday and New Shoes – S09E26

WildWorks Feb 20 Vinyl

It’s this day that I share a birthday with Rihanna and the late Kurt Cobain plus a few social media friends. February 20th is my birthday and it’s just a normal day and nothing major to celebrate. I know as we get older in age, parents would try to buy presents but they would give money instead. I decided to treat myself in getting new shoes and I have been eyeing them for quite awhile. I know it’s six months late in getting them but I had the chance to get the stylish Hudson’s Bay and Converse Jack Purcell shoes. The shoe came a day before my birthday and it was my early birthday present.
What I love about this shoe is that it’s based on the Hudson’s Bay iconic colours and it’s very wooly. Add to the leather on top of the shoe as it’s shaped like a duck. I know some friends are jealous with the shoe I got and would be willing to steal it off from my feet. I know I will be noticed when I wear them in the Spring.
I posted photos from below. Hope you will enjoy it.

Another splurge was ordering an Impossible film called Cyanograph SX-70. I’m curious when I shoot this film as it will be monochrome blue and it will be quite a challenge. That will be my late birthday present.

Lastly, I’m totally enjoying CBC‘s coverage of the Winter Olympics in Sochi. If you noticed that I’ve been tweeting a lot during the Primetime edition of the Sochi Olympics on CBC. Their iOS app is used as a second screen. Actually, there’s two people I know who’s working on the digital side for CBC’s coverage. To my own amusement, my tweet was posted on Storify. It’s all in good fun and just happy that the Olympic coverage is back on CBC.

Wish me a happy birthday!
