Weather

Weather is a pretty universal subject matter to talk about. In Malaysia, the conversation usually goes something like this:

hot

And this year the floods are pretty devastating.

I lived for a while in Edmonton. Things can get pretty crazy in Alberta.

But probably not as crazy as Yellowknife.

It once SNOWED in August in Edmonton.  While we were having a barbeque, it was madness.

So far, Toronto weather had been quite mild compared to Edmonton and yet every other person seems to own much thicker jackets. Like Canada Goose or Moose Knuckles. My standard Columbia jacket does pretty well here.

It’s a bit strange because there is literally no snow on the ground at this time of the year. Where is the Canadian experience, I ask you.

Right now people are probably up to their shoulders in snow in Alberta. I kind of miss it in a weird way.

What is the weather like where you live? I would love to hear about it! I have super cool viewers from Bangladesh, Denmark, Turkey, Netherlands, Greece, Congo, Panama, Argentina, Qatar etc. I’ve never been to any of these places and I’m interested to visit them one day when I have the chance. Share your thoughts! And like my facebook page too, please and thanks!

Bella the therapy dog

Earlier this year I was feeling incredibly stressed and I was in dire need of some puppy therapy.

Rumour has it that our faculty had a designated therapy dog, but for whatever reason the dog was out of service. (Maybe, the dog was on vacation, idk)

The days went by and my week of crazy came and went, and then I received an email from my mom, telling me about a therapy dog coming to my university… and has been coming 2 times a week for the past 5 weeks.

Obviously, my first reaction was, “Bye everyone, I’m going to pet puppies.”

So that day I told everyone I knew that I was going to pet puppies and be right back.

That morning, I rushed over to the pet therapy room half an hour before the actual start time. I heard that I would have to line up for 3 hours just so that I could touch a puppy for 10 minutes.

That wasn’t true, I was there for 1.5 hours and all I did was touch dog.

I just really wanted to be first in line to pet the dog.

And then BELLA CAME! She is a BEAGLE MIX! Beagles are wonderful. I love beagles. BEAGLES!!!

Beagles are my favourite dog because they are small but not too small. And their ears. THEIR EARS!!!

Students came and went and petted Bella for a few minutes, but I sat there for over an hour HAHAHA.

Bella was SO CALM. All she did was sniff sniff sniff. She didn’t lick at all! And basically she walked up to you to sniff you if you were a new person she had never met before. And then sat there and was petted by stressed students. Such a good dog.

Dogs are such amazing, loveable, non-judgemental creatures. I need 20 of them.

If you are at the U of T and need some puppy therapy. TODAY IS BELLA’S LAST DAY FOR THIS SEASON! Click here for details.

I was told that Bella would be coming back next spring. I will most definitely come back for puppy cuddles.
