I need you to LIKE me

I went down to check out the Lunar Festival with my mom yesterday night. It’s apparently the FIRST Lantern Aquarium in the world, I felt honoured that they would host it in Vancouver and it’s free admission!

I got in there at around 7:30 ish and there were only another 4 people in front of us waiting in line and seemed like there were more volunteers than there are visitors. That’s alright though, nothing wrong with that 🙂 The volunteers are awesome, I must say. They were very friendly and courteous. They welcomed us in to the tent, asked if we want a stamp, a tea/coffee, a lantern all before coming in. Even at that point, I was already proud about Vancouverites that have volunteered their time to be there and super hospitable. 

When we came in to the tent, we were greeted by the hundreds of lanterns hung from the ceiling down and apparently they were drawn from children from Canada and Taiwan. Some of the drawing were really marvelous and I would never be able to draw as good as those ones. I quickly took out my camera and started to play the photographer. I bent and kneeled down to the ground, not minding what everyone else is doing. Who cares, I’m here to capture the beauty of the festival, not to look pretty. Afterall, I was dressed ready with my thick sweater, jeans, boots, tripod, and my second eye (my DSLR). 

I spent about an hour just taking pictures of the area as much as I could, from all angles, the conventional to the weird ones. It was quite hard to take a good picture of the Paper Fantasea area as there’s not enough lighting and unfortunately they didn’t put a blue background and left the tent white. I’m not complaining though as I took it as a challenge for my photography skills. I thank you my mom for being so patient and waited for me while I took the pics. 

I went home and posted the picture onto Facebook in the hope of winning the first prize of $300. I messaged my friends personally, asking for their support, and their response have been marvelous! I got 44 votes within an hour and I’m at 71 votes right now! The leading picture has 180+ votes; I don’t know how she could get that many votes but I know I can beat that. Why? My friends are awesome-er, that’s what!

  1. Hey there just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The text in your content seem to
    be running off the screen in Firefox. I’m not sure if this is a format issue or something to
    do with web browser compatibility but I figured I’d post to
    let you know. The design and style look great though!
    Hope you get the issue solved soon. Kudos سداد قروض

  2. First of all I want to say great blog! I had a quick question in which I’d like to ask
    if you don’t mind. I was interested to know how you center yourself and clear
    your thoughts prior to writing. I’ve had difficulty clearing my mind in getting my ideas out.
    I truly do take pleasure in writing but it just seems
    like the first 10 to 15 minutes are wasted
    just trying to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or
    hints? Thank you!

  3. Unquestionably believe that that you said.
    Your favorite justification appeared to be at the internet the
    simplest thing to understand of. I say to you,
    I definitely get irked while folks consider issues that they
    plainly do not know about. You controlled to hit the nail upon the highest and also outlined out
    the entire thing with no need side effect , folks can take a signal.
    Will probably be back to get more. Thank you
