Currently listening to:French Navy by Camera Obscura
Status:Sleepy. Also: still voiceless.
Today i discovered:
1. It takes exactly the same amount of time to print a month’s worth of content calendar as it does for the office beverage machine to make me a cup of milo.
1i. All you credit card users… your future is in ma handz. Mwahahahaha.
2. My new zebra print socks go surprisingly well with my navy vans. (originally bought the set of 5 socks purely for the leopard print design, WHY IS IT SO HARD TO FIND SINGLE DECENT SOCKS IN THIS COUNTRY?!?!)
3. This post is way overdue. Like one year kind of waaaaay overdue.
So, without further ado
Getting ready to depart via Singapore Airlines- favourite airline of all time! I’m a nervous flyer, i get terribly nauseous and cant eat a single thing onboard or i will descend into the 7th level of nausea hell, but SIA’s off the rocket comfort level does make me feel better.
The thing about being in choir is you get to travel plenty. I’ve been to quite a few lovely countries (cold!) at highly subsidized rates (thank you school) with the entire choir- this is nice, because you get to travel with friends from a really young age. I made my first across-the-border choir trip when i was thirteen.
Waiting at the dock to board the ferry to bring us from mainland Italy to Venice. I Heart Veniezia! proudly proclaims the bag for sale in the top right hand corner of the first photo. Why yes i certainly do.
the ferry ride was a flurry of excitement consisting overlapping and overexcited cries of LOOK! its a house across the water! from all of us followed by a whirlwind of camera snaps. what deprived children we are, getting so excited over houses. they were really pretty houses though.
Streets of venice.
The famous gondola which we didnt try because it cost something along the lines of a hundred dollars… for a boat ride? I could buy a kate spade with a hundred dollars. *Channels inner tin pei ling*
The famous glass blowing practice of venice! If you dont know what im talking about you need to go back to your Secondary three social studies textbook.
See what i mean about the pretty houses
And thats about it for our day trip to venice.
We were very adventurous food wise: bought lots of that bread like wrap thing filled with interesting..bits of meat. Also, we fed whatever we couldnt finish/didnt like to the millions of birds loitering around in the square waiting to be fed with tourist leftovers. Tada! Mutual interest fulfilled.
Some of the rest bought venetian masks- very beautiful, but theyre huge i didnt know what i would do with them so I bought the magnet version for my fridge.
I am glad i managed to visit Venice before it sinks.
Oh- also. Was debating between getting a polaroid camera and a proper film one for the longest time, and i’ve finally settled on getting a film. Probably this weekend i’ll be the proud new owner of a Smena 8m russian film camera. Excited, to say the least!
