Home Alone - Too
Welcome to my home! I take a homepage quite literal.
So get out your joystick for a lo-tech virtual
walkthru of my poor man's castle ....
I live by myself in a 2-bedroom condominium in the heart of downtown
Toronto. Being a proud
first time home owner, I am beginning to grow quite fond of my humble abode.
Part of the fun is doing small renovations and seeing the progressive results.
Itís by no means luxurious and if you look carefully, you can spot
subtle hints of my incoherent tacky taste.
Just the same, everyone who visits just love my place - so welcome!
This is my favorite place, the master bedroom (heehee). My cousin helped me pick the
warm terracotta red with a cool green background. It's especially cozy and warm
during the winter months with the down
duvet, (you), and my furry friends (they are NOT stuffed
animals - they are human beans!). This is also where I practise my violin.
Both my bedroom and living room leads to the balcony
with a view of the Toronto skyline. My favorite past time during our short
Summer mornings is to read a book, write letters, and B-B-Q to a setting sun
on the balcony.
My kitchen nook. I also love
entertaining friends for balcony brunches and 5 course candlelight dinners
with a bottle of wine or three. You're invited but you must love
garlic and olive oil! I enjoy doing French and Italien cooking rather than
Chinese because it's a little easier to pair up a bottle of wine.
This is my BIG kitchen - it's one of the times I do admit being a size queen.
I just love to cook even though I'm not very good nor creative. It's also
fun to experiment on my dwindling supply of friends. I only wish I can cook
Chinese cuisine better - will you teach me?
And here is my second bedroom which I've turned into a study/music studio. This is
where I keep my PC and an old Roland Super JX-10 keyboard (76 keys). I also
have a Proteus 1 with orchestral expander and a Midiverb III.
For the techies,
my PC is a Pentium 133 clone with 32 meg RAM, 1.2G drive, 17" Nec XP-17,
SB Awe32 PnP w/ASP, 28.8 modem, Alps keyboard with built-in glidepoint (no mouse!)
and an old Canon bubble jet printer running
Windows 95. (whew!) You cannot believe all the wiring for the multimedia PC, my synths,
lights, and the mixer! My next toy is to get a second disk drive to run Windows NT
and a cheap hand scanner for converting printed music into midi
formats. I'm not much of a keyboardist. Primarily, I use it to do
orchestral arrangements for my ensembles.
Hey .... wake up!! That's it. Thank you for visiting my home!
