:) My best bet will be end of January. It is always pouring around this time here. Like a replacement for snow in US or Europe. Don't pray too hard for it to stop cuz when itz hot, itz gonna be really HOT. ;)

well maybe it won't rain again til monday (yeah right) :lol: and what wildlife are yopu talking about in Calgary? I think it is rather cool you've been there :) and I miss the stampede and banff, of course when I lived there I hardly went because it was all right there. But the stampede was always good fun, who can beat cowboys in tight jeans?

But I tell you after living in London people here are pretty easy going comparatively.

brightmoon: yes this is true, very boring roads, I never noticed until I lived in the UK for 6 years, and then drove to the coast from calgary, not many bends, glad you survived tho *l* and ahh gophers I forgot all about those.

Singaporeans are a funny bunch of people .When its hot ,they complain "Aiyah why so hot ?" Cant take it"
But when it rains and is cool ,they say " Oh God, dont tell me its raining again.Shit lah how to go out " ? hahahahhaha :D

In other words, they are always complaining for some thing or the other
Always have a smile on that face!

chix: I think this is a world unifier, everyone does that, from coast to coast in Canada, and shore to shore in the UK and Singapore, I think it is world wide, nobody is happy *lol* But hey when the sun shines I am a happy bunny, melted spot in the middle of the road but still smiling Image
