My friend on the cover of Vancouver's local paper!

I am so excited!
One of the three gals that I'm dancing with in this newly formed dance troupe, is on the cover of Georgia Straight paper this week!
I am soooo proud of her and her picture looks super hot!

Needed a physical break

I was really tired after the show and all the practice time and also after the "getting ready for the stage" class this Sunday. My days have been so packed that I hardly have had time to sleep in the past 2 weeks. So I decided to give myself 2 days break from the pole class and hopefully relax a bit.
The first night after work, TC and I had to go all the way to Coquitlam to pick up some slates and load up the poor car with them. We picked up some "Chelo-Kabob" on our way home and didn't do anything else afterwards.
The second night (last night) we dropped off all the slate at the job site and checked out a few things to mention to the contractor, and then headed towards home. I cooked some healthy dinner and after that both of us went for a 20 minute walk around the block.
I went to bed @ 10:00 and flipped a few pages of my bridal magazines, and fell asleep at about 10:50... Woke up at 7:30 this morning but I still feel sooooo tired and sleepy!

P.S. By the way, more and more people (friend who came from Dubai, the fitness coordinator at work, my manager's manager, the pole gals, the Persian crowd, ...) start to notice that I am in a much better shape than I used to and my body is looking toned! This makes me feel really really good! I haven't cut on any food, I just keep working out and make sure I eat home-made natural fresh un-processed food and a lot less "restaurant/cafe teria/food court" food!
Here is my workout routine during the week (the Pole Dancing schedule changes every 6 weeks):
  • Mondays: lunch time Circuit Training and Core Strength, evening Pole Dancing
  • Tuesdays: evening Pole Dancing
  • Wednesdays: lunch time Circuit Training and Core Strength, evening Pole Dancing
  • Thursdays: evening Pole Dancing
  • Fridays: lunch time Yoga
  • Saturdays: morning Belly Dancing
  • Sundays: afternoon Pole Dancing every other week

The newest hottest dance troupe!

The 3 of us had a great performance for a fundraiser event last night. The show was great and all the efforts and time we spent was paid off!
We still look for a name for our troupe but hopefully it's finalized by the time we'll have our next show!

Hey Ouna,
It's all taped on video and there're tons of pics. So, remind us to show it to you when you're in town! :)

Bard on the Beach

We finally went to watch "Measure for Measure" on Friday. It was my first time watching a play in Shakespearean English. To my own surprise I did enjoy the play as I understood way more than I thought I would! Although I must confess that I read the intro before the play starts... The acting was awesome! I totally recommend to all Vancouverites! :)

He's changed how I used to love my job!

Since the frequent conflict with that new guy in the office, I am more and more demotivated towards this job. I used to love it for the whole year and I was working like crazy with pleasure... the results were amazing and I even got a promotion after 4 months of starting that role... but now... I care less and less everyday... That guy is just killing the fun of this job for me... He's not even my manager, he's a peer... but he wants to control the world and he needs to learn so many things first! He's supper confident, supper aggressive, and extremely rude. Doesn't let anyone to finish off their sentence! He jumps into conclusions without knowing the facts and he uses his personal "assumptions" as "facts"!!

Once again! :(

It's not about what you do or how good/bad you do it!
It's about who you know!!

so sick n' tired

Back from a b-trip. I'm quite sick and tired of all the politics and frequent @$$-kissing of the corporate world. It's so cheap and it's driving me insane. It's no longer about hard work and caring for the company, it's about whom you know and who's @$$ you kiss.
If the job-market wasn't so bad in this city, and people have more options to pick an employer, it wouldn't have reached to this point. The professionalism and morale is going downhill...
