I had a great time and went to Queenie's wedding.
Wahhhh she's married!! Congrats my Ahjummaaaa!! ♥♥♥
So my flight on Thursday was at 6:15am...which meant I had to get there by 4:15am because I am paranoid & must always get to the airport early. This means I had to get up at like 1am to get ready...wtf is the point of sleeping? I tried to sleep at like 8pm but that obviously didn't work HAHA
So I went to the airport feeling like a zombie. I am fortunate no one tried to make small talk with me because I am positive I would've bit their head off. But some drunk Korean man tried to talk to me but then passed out...
So I had to transfer in Philadelphia and that connecting flight got delayed. *annoyed*
Then when I arrived in Montreal I found out my suitcase never made it because the genius workers at PHL unloaded it instead of transferring my bag to my connecting flight. *extremely pissed*
WTF If they lost my bag forever, wtf do I wear to the wedding? My makeup will be lost forever!! They told me they would overnight my bag & it'd be at my friend's house the next day. I was really doubting this T_T
I AM NEVER TAKING US AIRWAYS AGAIN!!! >:o
Anyway...Queenie & C had been waiting at the airport since like 5:30pm & it was almost 8:30pm by the time I got out. Poor them! They even got me flowers & made me this sign HAHAHA
It is an inside joke so I am sure they got lots of "Wtf?" looks from random people.
After my dramatic arrival XD we went to eat. But it took Queenie forever to find her way out of the airport HAHAHA
We went to Dans La Bouche which apparently means "in the mouth" lol
They had no English menu so I just sat there like O_o
Errrrrthang's in French over there!!
We ordered poutine! My first time trying it. It's french fries, gravy, and a shitload of cheese. Delicious!
We ordered a pitcher of Sangria but it just tasted like fruit punch...I feel cheated >.>
My first meal in Montreal & what do I order? A burger!! HAHA But it was really good and kinda different from what I've eaten in the US. The damn restaurant was practically pitch black so I couldn't really make out what was in it -_-
I took this with flash & everyone in the restaurant turned to look at me ^o^
I stayed at C's place and felt so handicapped because my damn suitcase was missing!!! No computer, no skincare, no clothes, no makeup, NOTHING!! hahaha I was super pessimistic and positive I'd never see my stuff ever again.
But it got delivered the next morning. YAY!! \^o^/
So the next day, reunited with my belongings, C took me downtown. We went to this really chill restaurant, Marche 27, that served all types of tartare, which is just chopped up raw meat that's been seasoned.
I've never tried raw meat before so it was an interesting experience!
We ordered a sampler platter that had salmon, beef, duck, deer, & tuna.
The deer was super spicy. I liked the duck the best.
After, we just roamed around downtown and walked like a million miles. I finally got to go to Holt Renfrew, a Canadian department store. But it was quite itty bitty. They did sell Shu Uemura there so I picked up a little somethin' something' since Shu Uemura's no longer sold in the US T_T
For dinner we went to Holder, a French restaurant located in Old Montreal.
I ordered the Duck Confit, which tasted pretty good.
C & I split a bottle of wine. It tasted alright. =\
I took home the cork because I'm a lame tourist XD
Saturday was Queenie's wedding!!!
Super pink, so Queenie ^o^
They got married on 09-10-11 hehe
It looks the same when reading it upside down in roman numerals. Clever clever!
And the rest of the pictures from the wedding...I cannot post HAHA
I had like 20 drinks too many and remember nothing. I woke up the next day and tried to piece together the night as if it was my own Hangover movie.
I am never mixing cognac and wine on the same night ever again.
The next day (Sunday)...C & I were lifeless =.=
We couldn't function and didn't eat anything all day. But since I was visiting, we couldn't just waste a whole day sitting at home doing nothing.
She took me to the Old Port...and we sat on a bench for quite awhile and just stared aimlessly.
HAHAHA no energy to do anything!
We just walked around (very slowly)
I bought some touristy things because my mom emailed me and requested hahaha
Anything that reminded me of alcohol made me want to gag throughout the whole day. This is the consequence of drinking. Don't drink, kids!
There's so many cute shops and restaurants in the side streets. But the damn brick roads made me almost twist my ankle a million times. I was wearing 4in wedge heels. -_-
We wandered around till it got dark, then decided to force ourselves to eat something. We went to an Italian restaurant & I ordered tortellini...bad idea. I ate like 1/4 of it then just stared at it HAHAHA no appetite! The server probably thought me & C were a couple of anorexics >.<
The streets look so pretty at night!
Some monument that's probably significant...I'm not really into touristy things when I travel lol
On Monday we were back to life! Before meeting Queenie & her husband for dinner, C & I went back downtown to shop a bit more.
We stopped by M Cafe for some coffee and macarons. The service here is lackluster. Our server was weird and couldn't multitask. He even split our bill wrong *fail*
We ordered 6 macarons to share. But they were not good. There wasn't much flavor to any of them & they were really hard.
Super expensive too! $2 each!
For dinner, we went to Leméac (you don't want to know how I butchered the pronunciation of this place HAHA)
I ordered the Roasted Duck Breast which came with sweet potato puree and dried cherry sauce. This was soooo yummy!!
Aju's husband paid for dinner, so nice! Thank youuuu (even though he'll never read this lmao)
I finally got to try Tim Hortons at the airport right before my flight! I've always wanted to go because Robin on How I Met Your Mother always talks about it ^o^
I thought it was junk food like McDonald's but it wasn't. It's actually healthier...at least it seems to be.
All my flights got delayed like a million hours and it took me like 13 hours to get home. I could've flown to Asia. How inefficient!
I didn't buy too much makeup wise.
But I just couldn't resist when I came across the Inglot store!! The only one near(ish) to me is in the OC. I got a quad and picked out 4 eyeshadows.
The quality is amazing! It took forever for me to decide. I got 2 matte shades & 2 shimmer shades.
They were having a sale so this was $39CAD .
At Holt's, I got the Shu Uemura Ultimate Expression Mascara. Been wanting to try this out forever! I hope it doesn't disappoint!
2PM CD!!! C's friend got this for me in Korea. I don't know why I buy the albums since I don't even use the CDs. I guess I'm just a hoarder XD
Random touristy gifts for people.
How can I go to Canada and not get any maple stuff??
All in all a fun fun trip!!! Thanks Queenie & C for showing me a good time!!
VIPs babyyyyy ヽ(＾▽＾)人(＾▽＾)人(＾▽＾)ﾉ
Omg super long post again. I talk way too much >.<
