A Fun and Exciting First Saturday of May - S3E19
It has been an exciting Saturday to kick off May because I had a lion dance performance outside Parliament Hill. The performance was a rally planned by the university Chinese/International students associations in support of the Beijing Olympics. Photos from the event are on my Flickr, http://www.flickr.com/photos/lenny-wu/sets/72157604867054339/ At night, I went to the Rebekah Higgs (pictured on top) concert at Zaphod Beeblebrox. Even though her concert ended right at 11pm, it was a fantastic to say the least. The turnout was not as packed when I went to other gigs. Overall, she delivered a good concert.
What a way to kick off May. It started on Thursday, May 1st at The Bay in Rideau Centre for a lion dance performance to promote their Summer clothing and apparel for the 2008 Beijing Olympics.
Festival season in Ottawa has kicked off with the Canadian Tulip Festival. Our lion dance will be performing this Saturday (May 10). I don't know if Major's Hill Park is free to get in during The Canadian Tulip Festival.
I got my tickets for the Cisco Ottawa Bluesfest. I can't wait to see Feist again and check out the Canadian indie artists again too.
On Sunday afternoon, I was listening Brian Leung's program (in Cantonese) and I was so happy to hear Stay (Faraway, So Close!) by U2 and All Good Things (Come to an End) by Nelly Furtado. Stay is considered one of my favorite U2 songs. As for All Good Things (Comes to an End), it feels so 2007 and I haven't heard it for awhile.
Phew, that's all I have to cover for now.
