Day 6…going for a healthy glow.

Before I left Vancouver all I did was complain that I had to go back to Mexico. It's not Mexico I have a problem with. It's just customs. They love me. 
Being racially profiled is understandable in my case, but mentally, it can crush one's spirit. I am a true Canadian and proud. Proud of my Filipino/Spanish heritage. It just sucks how all us visual minorities have to go through the pain of interrogation when most of us are just like everyone they seem to think is acceptable to walk on by. 

It's hurtful and can create a new fear.

When asked questions…always the truth; you can't help but stutter, lose concentration, shake, sweat….and what does that do? Make you look even more guilty.

Always a reminder that I we are different, and potentially be BAD PEOPLE to them. Wow, that feels so nice to know. (sarcasm)

 I know it's their job and yes, it's valid,  but it just really sucks…

What do you think?

Has this ever happened to you?

Vancouver Fashion Week 2013

Day 3/ PV Very early. OH, here's something new. READ the comments. I deleted 2 suggesting I'm on welfare. Thank you Mr. LA!

I just had the BEST breakfast EVAH! Omelet with shrimp and guacamole, like I never ever had tasted guacamole before! Tizoc Comida Mexicana. Great service, friendly staff, and beautiful open Mexican air!

Going to get my healthy glow on in about an hour. It' already 27 and sunny all day and it's 11:44am! Love it.

For the very first time, I feel like I'm on Vacation. This is spectacular!
I had it wrong all along. THIS is TRULY my new paradise.

* please feel free to read the comments on this post. Someone in L.A., is REALLY UPSET and probably jealous. I posted his image and forgot to tag the site I got it from. You all know I ALWAYS tag the site I get my images from. MEAN! …was never my intention.

I'm sorry. Don't follow my blog. Or do some research o my blog. Disability allows me to improve my life. Doesn't mean you sit on your butt and feel sorry for yourself. I want to get BETTER and I AM!

…work on yourself.
I will find out who you are. I'm just that way. I have a staff member for this. Research is her life! I just want to know who our MUTUAL friend is. Chat soon!

Day 2. Puerto Vallarta

Day one was a blur!  Really no sleep. My flight lest at 6 am., 3:30 cab call. Checked out some craft stores, tequila stores. A club I may potentially go to, and the best restaurants so far. Yum, yum. Eye candy all around some are melting but others know how to wear it right.

Met happy people everyday, and I can't help but feel like I'm in, "Happy, Happy", land. Seriously, everyone's happy and friendly.

Fantastic services for the men. I can only imagine the amount of anything they can get out of you!
…so no thanks.

Went to the infamous, "BLUE CHAIRS". Hmmm….
Loved my spot and I have to admit I DID love the techno blasting. ( I am one who can not believe these classic artists let other artist hack their songs with all these, circuit, cuirty lala, going on. Who turns, Sara McLaughlin to dance music? Ummm.. a loser!

Anyway, I love it here. I feel so peaceful. A feeling I haven't felt in a while.

I'll keep posting images.

Fun times,

Love and all that comes with,
 R

BIO:

PAIGE MORGAN will never change, but that doesn’t mean she won’t surprise you. Just the journey of making a record has surprised Paige herself.

The 20-year-old singer-songwriter is ready to make her debut, and this summer she enters wailing with first single “Never Change” (out August 6). Co-written by the Vancouver production team Heratix (indie-pop fans will know them as Dirty Radio), it’s a perfect introduction in the first five seconds. Prepare to get slapped with a massive pop sound, a soaring but sweet voice and the Paige mission statement: “Never Change.”

The song, she says, has a simple message: be yourself, no matter what.

As for the sound, Paige has always been an “R&B, soul kind of girl.” Etta James is a favourite. A pianist since childhood, she’ll obsess over a Stevie Wonder recording. But just listen to the record and you’ll understand she’s definitely a student of Top 40 pop. She loves Rihanna, Calvin Harris – and finds inspiration in how a few simple chords can conjure massive sound and feeling.

So who’s Paige?
Ask the singer and she’ll tell you she’s a lady who “works hard to play hard” – even if play, for Paige, means spending her spare time in studio with kindred pop-smiths like Kevvy (of Fake Shark Real Zombie) and Louise Burns.

Ask her collaborators and they’ll tell you she’s a major talent and kind of a pop chameleon: intuitive, versatile, “genre-straddling.”

You can hear that gift in her vocals alone, says Anthony Dolhai of Heratix. On “Cutaway” her croon is smooth, sensual – coyly peeking from the song’s wispy layers of synths. On “Never Change” she’s a different character entirely, belting at full volume, charged with club-diva verve.

“Paige’s voice is strong and incredible,” marvels Tino Zolfo (Soul Decision), who worked with her in Toronto. Their recordings? She nailed them all in one take.

But getting to this stage hasn’t been so easy – though at first it seemed it might be. The journey started when Paige was a teenager. Every singing competition she entered, she aced. By 16, while performing at a music teacher’s recital, she caught the notice of a producer in the crowd. That connection led to her meeting Josh Ramsay of Marianas Trench, and the Juno-winner, in turn, ultimately introduced her to Vancouver’s 604 Records. (They’ll release her upcoming album, expected later this year.)
