My Amazing Friends Helped Me Win an iPad!

Right now, I should be focusing on correcting papers for my Professor, but I have to take a minute to THANK, with all my heart, my amazing friends who helped me win an iPad!
Asian Geek's iPad

I’m the luckiest ASIAN GEEK on the planet, because while I was studying, playing silly sports with other funky Carabins (that was legen… dary), watching Glee, organizing a surprise for V-DAWG B.A.A (our athlete of the year), partying at my graduate prom in Mont-Tremblant, etc. dozens of friends were voting for me! (take a look at the Gifiniti iPad contest results)

Tell me, how would you like to celebrate? A huge GEEK party? Perhaps where you can come play with my iPad? ^.^ I’ll keep you posted for my victory lap. Stay tuned!

Again, thank you, merci, gracias, 多谢, danke

Jerome Blais Biking 6500 km to Prevent Suicide

Suicide is a serious matter that haunts our society. I find it sad to know that there are people who are willing to give up on life. Trying to be empathic, I can understand that pressure is not always easy to handle. But then again, what is impossible to do?

I consider myself as an eternal optimistic: nothing is impossible. My friends sometimes call me a naive girl when I say that everything is gonna be alright. Others see me as a stubborn fighter because I refuse to lose (whether it is during sports, an argument or a Chinese chess game 象棋). One thing is certain, I rarely throw in the towel and I will always persevere.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m not trying to convince you to become a bad loser. I’m only realizing that there are many types of person in this world, and that on a certain level I can count myself as an extremely lucky girl. My life has been so great so far. I have success in school and in sports. I always meet warmhearted people wherever I go, even when I’m heading towards the other end of the planet.

Lately, I noticed some campaigns on the prevention for suicide. Have you watched this week’s episode of ‘House M.D’? If you haven’t, don’t worry, I won’t spill out the HUGE spoiler like one friend did to me (damn you!). But at the end of it, during the credits, they shared an organization for those with suicidal thoughts.

‘If you are in crisis and thinking about suicide, call 1-800-273-TALK (8255)

For general information about mental health issues, visit the National Alliance on Mental Illness

I find it wonderful to witness social responsibility by the mass media.

Furthermore, I have friends who are taking part in raising awareness for suicide prevention. I bought their promotion T-shirt on their website (altitude-sports.com) and I encourage you to do the same. Get your own ‘Suicide Action Montréal 6500 km à vélo‘ T-shirt.

more info about the cause:

me wearing the Suicide Action Montréal T-shirt

Altitude-Sports.com invites you to support Jerome Blais as he cycles across Canada to raise awareness for suicide prevention. Encourage him by purchasing one of the 100% cotton t-shirts by BLANK, proudly made in Quebec.

  • In Quebec, suicide is the leading cause of death in men aged 20 to 39, as well as in women aged 25 to 29. Suicide Action Montreal (SAM) is an organization which, thanks to its many volunteers, works hard in the area of suicide prevention. SAM offers support to those with suicidal thoughts and their friends and families.
  • Please note that the entire expedition has been personally funded by Jerome. We are therefore asking for your generosity in supporting a very important cause, not to pay for a trip. All contributions, including the profits of t-shirt sales, will be donated to the SAM Foundation.

    Got to learn that Slumdog Millionaire Jai Ho dance

    ‘Who wants to be a millionaire?’ is the tagline of the famous TV show which inspired the movie of the year (in my humble opinion). ‘Slumdog Millionaire’ has already won 4 Golden Globes and 7 BAFTAs.  Everybody is anticipating the Oscars gold for this Danny Boyle movie.

    I finally decided to go watch this movie after many friends’ recommendations (and after all its success at the Golden Globes). ‘Slumdog Millionaire’ is simply magnificent. The storyline is interesting, the kids are endearing, the editing is inspiring… no wonder the movie already won this many awards.

    Most of all, I have to admit that I still can’t get the song ‘Jai Ho’ from the ending credits out of my head.  Following the Bollywood tradition, the movie ended (no spoilers) with an impressive dance where dozens are moving with the rhythm of ‘Jai Ho’ (A R Rahman ft. Sukhvinder Singh, Tanvi Shah & Mahalaxmi Iyer).  Unfortunately, due to copyrights concerns, this video of the dance might not stay long, enjoy it while it is online :)

    Now, is there anyone else who is willing to learn that Jai Ho dance with me? ^_^

    Slumdog Milionaire Jai Ho Dance

    Here are the lyrics:

    Jai Ho! ^n

    Aaja aaja jind shamiyaane ke taley

    Aaja zari waale neele aasmaane ke taley

    Jai Ho! ^ n

    Ratti ratti sachchi maine jaan gawayi hai

    Nach Nach koylon pe raat bitaayi hai

    Ankhiyon ki neend maine phoonkon se udaa di

    Gin gin taarey maine ungli jalayi hai

    Eh Aaja aaja jind shamiyaane ke taley

    Aaja zari waale neele aasmaane ke taley

    Baila! Baila!

    Ahora conmigo, tu baila para hoy

    Por nuestro dia de movidas,

    los problemas los que sean

    Salud!

    Baila! Baila!

    Jai Ho! ^n

    Chakh le, haan chakh le, yeh raat shehed hai

    Chakh le, haan rakh le,

    Dil hai, dil aakhri hadd hai

    Kaala kaala kaajal tera

    Koi kaala jaadu hai na?

    Aaja aaja jind shamiyaane ke taley

    Aaja zari waale neele aasmaane ke taley

    Jai Ho! ^ n

    Kab se haan kab se jo lab pe ruki hai

    Keh de, keh de, haan keh de

    Ab aankh jhuki hai

    Aisi aisi roshan aankhein

    Roshan dono heerey (?)  hain kya?

    Aaja aaja jind shamiyaane ke taley

    Aaja zari waale neele aasmaane ke taley

    Jai Ho! ^ n

    Jason Mraz – I’m Yours

    Jason Mraz is a superstar, he shares his happiness through his songs. Life is beautiful, life should be beautiful. Of course, sometimes, we have some down times, we don’t see clearly, the darkness blinds us, but we have to be strong enough to get over it and get back on our feet. Time flies, and we should not let the sadness drown us. Do not hesitate, just live your life.

    Today, I want to share with you his song “I’m Yours”. I love it since the first time I’ve heard it, which has already been a long time ago, I wonder when it’ll be popular all over the planet.  I hope that you will enjoy it as much as me :)

    What do you think about the lyrics?

    Well you done done me and you bet I felt it
    I tried to be chill but you’re so hot that I melted
    I fell right through the cracks
    and now I’m trying to get back
    Before the cool done run out
    I’ll be giving it my bestest
    Nothing’s going to stop me but divine intervention
    I reckon it’s again my turn to win some or learn some

    I won’t hesitate no more, no more
    It cannot wait, I’m yours

    Well open up your mind and see like me
    Open up your plans and damn you’re free
    Look into your heart and you’ll find love love love love

    Listen to the music of the moment people dance and sing
    We’re just one big family
    And It’s our God-forsaken right to be loved love loved love loved

    So I won’t hesitate no more, no more
    It cannot wait I’m sure
    There’s no need to complicate
    Our time is short
    This is our fate, I’m yours

    Scooch closer dear
    and i will nibble your ear

    I’ve been spending way too long checking my tongue in the mirror
    And bending over backwards just to try to see it clearer
    My breath fogged up the glass
    And so I drew a new face and laughed
    I guess what i be saying is there ain’t no better reason
    To rid yourself of vanity and just go with the seasons
    It’s what we aim to do
    Our name is our virtue

    I won’t hesitate no more, no more
    It cannot wait I’m sure
    There’s no need to complicate
    Our time is short
    this is our fate, I’m yours

    Well no no, well open up your mind and see like me
    Open up your plans and damn you’re free
    Look into your heart and you’ll find the sky is yours
    Listen to the music of the moment come and dance with me
    À la one big family (2nd time: À la happy family; 3rd time: À la peaceful melody)
    It’s your God-forsaken right to be loved love love love

    I won’t hesitate no more, no more
    It cannot wait, I’m sure
    There’s no need to complicate
    Our time is short
    This is our fate, I’m yours

    No please, don’t complicate
    Our time is short
    This is our fate, I’m yours

    No please, don’t hesitate
    no more, no more
    It cannot wait
    The sky is yours!
