Morning went to Eau clair market and Prince Island Park. Played dai-dee there. Also bought bread to feed the animals, only to see a sign in the park later that tells people not to feed animals (in case that they get dependent on human).
Broke off with the group later while at downtown. More freedom that way. Went to the beautiful Devonian Garden located at the top level of Devonian Shopping Complex. It is a transparent-ceiling-air-conditioned indoor garden that comes with its own birds and pond (yes, there are fishes in there for you to feed, and several coin-based fishfood dispensers conveniently located nearby...). There are people sitting around eating their lunches, reading books, or simply enjoying the calm that abounds so abundantly in that serene garden. Tres Bien.
Shopping! Bought a Gore-Tex jacket at CAD$150, the biggest expense paid out for my stay in Canada till now. But it was only 150/340 that of Wenzheng’s jacket. Why? Cos my jacket is the Youth’s version (but it fitted me snugly! Does that mean I am YoUtHfUl??) though same in design and intricacies as the adult version. Drool over it at http://www.mec.ca/Products/product_detail.jsp?FOLDER%3C%3Efolder_id=711437&PRODUCT%3C%3Eprd_id=522039&bmUID=1094527314793
Also bought a nalgene bottle at CAD$7.25. This one has a bigger mouth than my bigger-capacity green nalgene bottle. Hope it doesn’t talk so much.
