on sunday we could finally sleep as late as we wanted. for breakfast we had sandwiches and juice.
sikander heard about the Pacific Mall form one of his shcaker friends earlier during the week so we decided to go there. it is supposed to be hte biggest Chinese mall in north america. it was pretty close to our apartment actually. 404 and steeles. i didn’t like the mall so much. it wasn;t interesting. every shop was a glass block and there was nothing unique about the mall. it was too commercial and it wasn’t welcome at all. there were a bunch of cell phone stores and lots of luggage and clothes stores. nothing so interesting. there was a candy shop and we bought a lot of chinese, japanese and korean candy. they even had a strawberry kitkat. it is horrible! don’t try it.
we wrapped up there soon and headed to the autoshow in downtown. sikander’s friend overburn gave him two free tickets to the autoshow so we decided to visit while we had some free time. the autoshow is in the rogers centre and you know parking in downtown toronto. we had to go all the way down to the 4th floor underground and it was so hard to find a parking space and $20 flat price no matter how long we are parking there. crazy crazy. for a short moment i was thinking should we buy this ? should we buy this? should we leave.
but then tickets and coming here.. all the efforts we had made until now, we had no choice. $20 bucks! for at most 2 hours of parking… ugh!
the autoshow was pretty good. so much better than i expected. i felt sorry for naraku though. he had asked sikander to take picture of booth babes but there weren’t any booth babes. sorry harry!
we were so busy to sit in the cars which we have been interseted in. actually, every car there looked nice except toyota yaris and toyota matrix and saturn ion. all these cars are designed with the speedometer in the middle of the car and not directly in front of the driver. that is so dumb.
thank you for offering the free tickets. we came back about 5 in the evening and took a nap. when i got up i finally started the project i was wanted to do for whole week; vegetable pancake. since we should eat a lot of vegetable and less meat, vegetable pancake sounds very nice, doesn’t it ? zucchini, carrot, potato, onion with flour makes perfect harmony. sikander doesn’t like zucchini but he didn’t dislike zucchini in pancakes. next time i will put butter squash in it. we will see if we are still a couple after that. he threatened me the last time i tried to buy butter squash and he told me that if there is butter squash in the apartment, then he will not be in the same apartment until it is gone. i will just tell him its sweet potato.
to make the sunday perfect, we had to watch a movie. we tried The Holiday but it seemed too uninteresting and so cliched that even jack black could not save it with his charming big round stomach. so we moved on to a movie called “Little Children.” Oh my god, what a movie. painful to watch but very very well made. i think the pedophile in that movie should’ve won the best supporting oscar. his performance was so creepy that i cannot erase the image from my mind. by the way, sunday night movie is very important to me especially when i was working in Korea. sunday night i am gloomy enough and on top of my gloominess if i watch a gloomy movie then i am just double triple multiple gloomy. hyyuuuuu me and my sensibility :)
anyhow, what a busy but fun weekend.
