Being a doctor's wife ain't easy.
The dream of all Asian women - or at least their parents' - is to marry a doctor. (Or if they come from a more progressive, educated family, the women can become doctors themselves.) So what happens when that "dream" is achieved?
Is it pure wedded bliss...while eating bonbons and sitting on a couch while watching eps of General Hospital? Apparently not, as I recently got just a glimpse as to what life's actually like for those dr's wives who have kids and no nanny.
(Aside: I have not seen their house, so perhaps a luxe life makes up for the hardships?)
Basically, this wife, a self-proclaimed Type A personality, sounded more like a manager. All her children are heavily involved in dance, hockey, whatever, so she does spend a lot of time scheduling, shuffling the children from school - activity - back home, etc. She has 3 children under the age of 11-12.
Whenever I see her, she looks perfect. Her hair is perfect, her outfit is suitable for the occasion - but I did spot her white, Chanel J12 watch the last time I saw her, and she is fit. No flab anywhere. She must work out. She is friendly yet none of her husband's family speak to her.
Her children are well-behaved. I can have a proper conversation with her eldest, a son, without baby-talking or dumbing-down my conversation. He can articulate about their recent vacation in Italy. It is obvious that him and the other children attend private school.

Online Dating Rituals of the American Male is just completely vom worthy...yet I'm still watching it.
The 2 dudes that they're featuring tonight are both rich, but no amount of $$$ would help me put up with either of these douches for more than just a dinner date. And it better be an expensive meal either, none of that cheap shit either!

I don't want to sound like an insensitive asshole/someone who watches The Strain/too many movies like the 1995 Outbreak, but America is closer to Canada than Africa, so why are infected Americans being brought back stateside for treatment...when there is no treatment??
If America had a proven cure, then fine. Kill the virus, save the person, but dudes, aren't these Einsteins watching the same tv shows/movies as everyone else? Isn't this the sort of virus where victims are tossed into a mass grave somewhere and cremated in order to prevent any further spread?
This just sounds like a horrible, horrible idea to an already terrible tragedy that will have a predictable ending.

2 People Died At Concert
So over the weekend, two Toronto concert goers of "Veld Music Festival" died after taking either a mysterious brown pill or a clear capsule filled with a white substance.
Aside: From the line-up, it looks like my kinda concert, but I probably wouldn't go 'cause girls would be dressed like this and it would make me feel creepy + outta place.
I guess it's not a good time unless someone dies...or gets their finger tip bitten off.
Hopefully they died while staring at Calvin soo-much-hotter-as-a-blond Harris' hotness or listening to
...even though it's overplayed.

* real name/photo withheld
Itar is my Italian cobbler. I don't see him often, but when I do, he is always looking for an engagement ring, asking me about my marital status, and giving me some life lessons. So I thought that I'd share some of the stuff that he told me about today:
- men are pigs, even married men. The older they get, the bigger the pig
- men are all the same
- women are pigs too
- the majority of women in North America dresses for comfort, re: they dress like shit
- children are like a little "lock" between the parents. If a couple has a place together, that would be even better 'cause that would make a man think twice before he cheats
- don't give your man a reason to cheat on you, keep in shape, dress feminine, comb your hair, and put on some makeup
I wonder what lessons await me when I pick up my shoes??

Lucy Li, you need to fire your stylist/mom.
I realise that you are 11yo, but keep it simple. It looks as though you're wearing a quilt made out of recycled American flags. Tacky.

(BSS was at the height of their popularity with the release of their '02 album, We Forgot It In People, but I just stopped following them shortly thereafter. 2002 was eons ago and they just don't speak to me anymore. Plus, it was chilly and rainy and I wasn't dressed properly!)
The first clip is of their last year's hit, The Mother We Share.
The second clip is of Martin Doherty doing his thang. Don't ask me the name of this song. I don't know the band super well, so I was just caught off-guard by his performance/energy...which was a good thing!
I was actually surprised by the sheer number of male fans that this group had who knew the words to every song. I dunno why, perhaps it's because the lead singer, Lauren Mayberry has such a delicate, girly voice?
Aside from CHVRCHES + poutine from The Poutine Machine food truck - it was o-k - that was 'bout it for Day 2. I knew about the rain, but I had not anticipated it being soo chilly and I was wearing a sundress. So I had an umbrella, but nothing really covering my shoulders, aside from a thin, muslin scarf, or legs.
The day was a bit miserable and with its grayness also toned down the Festival costumes. Other than a whole group of tweens dressing alike, I did not see a whole lot of fashion faux-pas. Maybe that's a good thing?
Most of the festival goers were dressed as though they were camping. So it was pretty chill/dullsville.
Until next year? Line-up dependent that is...
