I had the sheer pleasure of catching my Alma Mater, Cal vs Utah in the Battle of the Bands in my town of San Diego in preparation for their Holiday football game: the “Poinsettia Bowl.” Each band started out at opposite sides of San Diego’s popular down town strip called the “Gaslamp Quarter” and marched and played as they came closer and closer to each other. When the two bands met, they each battled it out, taking turns with the best music and moves they each had. At the end of course, I say Cal rocked the jingle bells off Utah!! Go Bears!
Just before Christmas, Puma threw the best party in honour of there famous shoe the mostro, which has been around as long as I have. Ping Pong, Live music and plenty of laughs.

09’s Christmas was filled with fun times!
Our lunch was asian inspired food, it was themed this year, it was such amazing food cooked by my Aunty and cousins. We had my Uncle taking our family portraits and group photos, which we get done every year.
A few of my older cousins and I took to my cousins room, cranked the music, had a dance and dressed up in her clothes, shortly after we were joined by most of the family in her medium sized room! it was good fun playing around with them!
By the end of the night after the pudding was lit on fire and the cheesecake was eaten, all 23 of us took a musical instrument and had a family jam session, great time to bond at Christmas.
Theses are a few photos from our dancing dress up time in my cousins room!
Hope you all had a fab x-mas!
Out and about in New York City. We went to check out all the pretty lights and the market up in Columbus Circle.
Bought a really nice christmas tree, my Canadian Lumberjack boyfriend carried it all the way home.
At the end of our day we had a SNOWBALL FIGHT!!!!!! I got a bit wet but it was so much fun!!!!
Me moosing around NYC =)
My friend Fabianne closed down her Cafe & Pastry shop on Christmas Eve night and created a feast for us. It was a proper Brazilian Christmas with rice, beans, lentil, fish and the most exquisite desserts. Of course she cooked for an army so I ended up taking about 10 pounds of food home.
Don’t DIS my ABILITY is the new campaign for international day for people with disabilities… International Day of People with a Disability (IDPWD) is designated by the United Nations as a time to celebrate and recognise the achievements, contributions and abilities of people with a disability and is celebrated on December 3.
Heres a pic of me at the morning tea function with a balloon I stole off the wall
We celebrated last night with a traditional Shabu-shabu dinner in Tokyo. Its such an amazing experience having dinner here in Japan. Everything is so particular and they take so much care in the way they present and undertake the normal routine of eating. The tofu was home-made and the sake was amazing. The chicken was so fresh that you only needed to boil it in the water for a few seconds (they told us to say shabu-shabu as we dipped it in the water).
