You know what I will be doing for Canada Day, apart from not going to the Canadian Embassy party which I finally heard about but costs TWELVE WHOLE DOLLARS? I'm going shopping in Vietnam because more souveniers are needed. I probably won't even see another Canadian. Maybe I'll sing the anthem or something when I wake up in the morning... Have fun doing whatever you choose to do.

Yeah, the Canadian Embassy thing was too expensive for me, too. And Canada day is almost over here! I forced a Korean and an Irish guy to wish me Happy Canada day, and that's about it!
