It wasn’t my first time — but it was definitely the first time of 33 out of 36 friends who went with me last weekend.
Guess what we did…
No really, guess!
Okay, it’s ice-skating!
Especially in Taiwan, ice-skating is a novelty. Given its semi-tropical, humid weather (unlike the Philippines, it has four seasons), most Taiwanese have never ice-skated before.
Good thing is, a lot of them can roller-blade, which makes it easier for them if they do ever try ice-skating.
Unfortunately for me, aside from trying out the ice-skating rink once or twice at Megamall more than eight years ago, my ice-skating skills are practically nil.
You should’ve seen me.
I was wobbly clinging on the bar for dear life…
And screaming like a pig every time I feel like I’m going to fall.
I think I was the loudest screamer in the entire rink.
But one thing I’m proud of…
At least, I didn’t even fall in my butt.
Not even once.
My friend BA did though. She said it hurt so bad.
“This is going to be my first, and last time ice skating!” she declared.
Well, for me, I’d be willing to try it again… but once is enough. NEXT!
It was a very productive weekend for me as well.
First, I finally finished my indoor wall climbing belay lessons.
All it takes now is to take a test, so I can get a certificate. YAY!
And secondly, after three or so weeks, finally did my laundry!
I had so much laundry to do that in the end, I had to buy more hangers.
Only to realize I had no space to place my clothes ’cause I just had so many!
Oh well, at least, it’s done.
Ah, people from the Philippines, count your blessings. A labandera (wash lady) do really make all the difference.
The conversation of the week was about the perfect woman.
My Canadian-Chinese friend, Rose, declared that she is pretty dominating and controlling in a relationship. She “trains” her men to cook and clean… but she wants to mellow down more because guys don’t seem to want that. They want a girl who’s sweet, feminine and non-controlling.
“For a guy, a perfect woman is one who is laid-back and is neat. Meaning, she can also cook and clean,” he said.
Well, I’m not the perfect woman after all.
Yes, I’m laid-back… but I’m as messy as a pig.
*embarrassed smile again*
That’s why, it’s important that my boyfriends are way neater than I am.
Both my ex and my boyfriend would do my laundry from time to time.
And people who have seen my boyfriend’s apartment knows he’s a clean man.
Seriously, it looks as clean as a hotel room.
“Don’t worry Rose, next time, don’t find a guy who you can train,” I laughingly told Rose, “Instead, find a guy who is already trained.”
It’s far easier that way. 🙂
Going wallclimbing today again! Should be fun!
