It's been a hard two weeks but I am getting better. Bamboo said it best in his song "Masaya", "Agony wraps my bones... why is love like this?" I still feel those knots in my stomach. It is not fun.

Thanks to all the friends/family that helped me out. And of course, what would I do without snowboarding to pass the time away? Hahaha...

New Year and no posts. I guess I have been neglecting my blog. Been real busy (or had better things to do, lol!)

Well, here's hoping I post more. Hahahaha, we'll see.

Oh, by the way, Avatar is my new favorite movie.

Snowboarding rocks

It took me two years to figure out whether to do this sport. The usual apprehensiveness came up, it's too expensive, I'm gonna get really badly injured doing it and will I really enjoy it? Doesn't really seem to be my thing.

So finally, I decided to take lessons to just try it out up at Grouse on the first week of January. I had 4 sessions every Saturday and it was complete with falls, bumps and bruises. To top it all off, I was one of the people that didn't catch on it as quickly as the others.

Despite all that however, I was already having so much fun and this was becoming a sport I really looked forward to doing every winter. Now, I can officially say I am addicted. Got all the gear and thankful that I got friends (thanks Karno) to help me learn, and Aldo and Pia who also gave me individual instruction when I was still learning, and Aldo, the ever passionate one, pushing me as if I was going to eventually go to competition or something... hahahaha

The payoff is great, look below at the videos and pictures I took from my phone. You get to enjoy the view and watch other good people ski and board. On top of all that, you meet a lot of great people doing it.

If you have facebook, you will need to go to my original blog to view the videos below as it won't show up through facebook.

Karno, a passionate snowboarder of 18 years, is enjoying the view up on the mountain. This is what I have been missing figuring out whether do it or not! Karno is a real good guy to go boarding with as he gives great individual instruction and also tries to raise the bar as Aldo does.

A short 5 second clip, but you can see the reflection Karno's board made on the snow.

And a few

photos from facebook:

There was also the FIS Snowboard championship that was held on Cypress and here is another video I took on the phone. Karno has great pictures up on his facebook but again there are restrictions to who can view these photos.

Inspiring Good Samaritan story this Christmas season

A mouse is walking in the forest and hears "help help." He comes upon a big hole where an elephant has fallen in and cant get out. He says, "mouse I need help to get out here" and the mouse says, "wait here i will be right back.”

Ten mins later, he pulls up in his Porsche 911, backs up to the hole, jumps out, goes to the trunk, pulls out a rope, ties it to the bumper and throws it down to the elephant

He says, “Grab the rope and i will pull you out.” The elephant grabs the rope with his trunk and the mouse pulls him out. The elephant says, “thank you mouse for saving my life i will always be in debt to you.”

Later in the year, the elephant is walking along one day and hears "help help!" Well, what do you know, its the mouse who has fallen down the hole. The elephant walks over, lowers his dick down to the mouse and the mouse climbs up his dick and out of the hole.

The moral of the story is if you have a big dick you don’t need a Porsche.

As my friend said this story to me, someone asked, "why couldn't the elephant used his trunk instead." Well, he replied, "it doesn't have the same effect."

I guess the elephant wanted the pleasure out of it too :p

Snowed out

Just when you think it was going to stop, yes the snow keeps on in Vancouver.

Link to the above Youtube clip

Click here to see a slideshow of how much snowfall we got here

We pretty much broke the record of heaviest snowfall in Vancouver, but in eastern Canada, this may be normal for them. Unlike them, however, we are not prepared for snowfall like this. We have less snowplows, and even less people with the right vehicle/skills to drive around the snow.

On that note, I want to wish everyone Happy Holidays, and drive safely out there.
