the clock clicks to midnight, and i'm standing in the international arrivals of vancouver airport surrounded by people to meet someone i've never met. and no-one knows it's my birthday. weird feeling.
terrific malaysian food at banana leaf and some quality family beach time made birthday memories sweet. the laing family from upstairs serenaded with the time-honoured tune. cake, cards and daddy makes choices all day. we like.
so .. who was i meeting at the airport i hear you ask? rosie is my new friend and co-worker, ready for an amazing 10 months. the next chapter opens as we join with PAIS on the westside to see some real cool stuff happen - really excited.
