Getting a pizza from 7-11 sounds like the worst decision you could possibly make

le gf and i strolling by metrotown, and found a woman's purse by an isolated bench. i suspected it had already been rummaged through, as nothing was left but make-up and lots of government + confidential documents. called her number, but no service. skimmed through her documents to find her husband's number, and called him to arrange for a pick-up instead. as suspected, his wife lost it outside Toys R Us, somebody picked it up, ransacked it, and discarded it.

later that evening, walked by a homeless man sitting outside Marketplace IGA crying out for change to buy some food. didn't look him in the eye as i didn't have change, but i came out of the market and surprised him with sandwiches and water

little things, but feelsgoodman.jpg

Arirang and I were heading over to a friend's house but decided to stop can grab some viet subs for everyone there.

As we're walking into the bakery to get the subs, we notice a homeless guy outside. We make our order and I grabbed an extra sub and gave it to the homeless guy outside. Except when I gave it to him, the homeless guy said he doesn't want it and wants money instead.

I was a little in awe at this point and I told him that I don't have any change since I spent it on the sub. The guy just kept saying how he wants money and not the sub. This may be a byproduct of being Canadian but I apologized for not having change and just handed him the sub and went on my way.

As we're driving away, the guy was already eating the sub.

Even now, I still have no idea what happened and how to really feel about it.

The reason why he was saying that is he only wants money to buy crack or meth... Of course he started eating it cause its food and for sure hes hungry but the only thing on his mind is getting that next fix. One reason why I would never give a homeless person money.

Well, stopped by Timmy's this morning and the homeless guy was back. So I bought him a breakfast sandwich and coffee and asked where his metal cart was. He said he's no longer collecting metal, but still collects cans. Didn't really want to press him on why he was gone for a few months.

On my drive home tonight, I happened to see a Husky wandering along the sidewalk by himself in Richmond. I didn't see an owner near by so I quickly pulled a u-turn back to the dog. Pulled over and called the dog over. He was more than happy to see someone. Luckily he had a collar with a number on it. Called the number and the owner gratefully came by to pick him up. It seemed like he was about 4-5 blocks away from home.

Another lost dog situation prevented!

People pay by phones now, so an empty meter doesnt necessarily mean it's expired. Either way, the city thanks you for your act of kindness

I have an International Student here from Brazil and this morning he seemed a little bummed out. I asked him why the frown? He tells me in Brazil today is Kids' Day - where parents buy something and/or do something nice with their kids - and he was feeling a little homesick.

Then he tells me that him and a few other Brazillian students were heading out to Boston Pizza for lunch. I was heading out with my sons to go to the beach, but on my way I stopped in at Boston Pizza, bought a $100 gift card, and explained to them to give it to my 'son' coming in with other friends. I showed them a pic, wrote down his name and about an hour later I get a text from him thanking him for lunch - and his friends were blown away. I replied that it is Kids' Day in Canada today as well.

This was really touching and I like how Bieksa is acting like its no big deal as well.

Quote:
Finishing a Lego Set is a satisfying moment for any person.

For Wilson Liu, a two-year journey completing a giant Death Star set carried extra significance.

It’s not just that Wilson is blind, or that he has a fatal degenerative disorder. And it’s not just that Wilson was given the Lego Set during a chance encounter with a Vancouver Canuck.

For Wilson, finishing a three thousand, eight hundred and three-piece Death Star is a symbol of everything he’s overcome and the unique opportunities he’s been provided.

“Wilson is very proud of the things he’s accomplished,” says his care manger Jasmine Prasad. “He doesn’t let this disease stop him from doing anything he wants to achieve.”

Wilson hasn’t seen the Star Wars movies in nine years, but because they were his favourite films when he was young, he can still remember visuals in detail.

“There’s his lightsaber,” he says, describing Darth Maul. “It’s red on one end, and red on the other end too…it’s evil.”

When he was six, Wilson was diagnosed with Batten disease. It’s a terminal illness that first robbed Wilson of his sight and has slowly confined him to a wheelchair.

Wilson’s family doesn’t have much – his father works at a noodle restaurant while his mom cares for him full-time – but they were able to give him a wide range of opportunities as he grew up thanks to provincial funding. Two years ago, when he was 18, that funding was about to run out.

“There was a lot of uncertainty,” says Prasad. “It was difficult for Wilson, we didn’t know what would happen, if he would have any workers be with him.”

It was during that time, when Prasad and Wilson’s family were trying to find a longer-term solution for his care, that the two of them were in Oakridge Mall. Wilson enjoyed playing with the Lego Sets, especially the Star Wars ones. And especially the Death Star set.

But with a price around $600, it was too much for Wilson’s family.

“I had been trying for months and months to get Wilson this Death Star before I stopped working for him,” said Prasad, hoping that it might be a nice goodbye present to Kevin before she stopped being his care manager.

It was then she saw Kevin Bieksa.

“I said excuse me, Mr. Bieksa, would you mind meeting Wilson?” said Prasad, remembering their chance encounter.

Bieksa began talking to Wilson about his upcoming 19th birthday and his favourite Lego sets. Wilson bragged that he just finished the Millennium Falcon.

“What about this thing here?” said Bieksa, pointing to the Death Star set. Bieksa took it off the wall and paid for it on the spot.

“You began crying,” says Wilson to Prasad.

“It was kind of surreal, because with Kevin Bieksa not even knowing how important this was for Wilson, somehow he knew and got it for him. It changed all of our lives.”

Bieksa took a picture with Wilson – “The picture is so blurry. You look at the picture, and it’s really blurry, but it was a really emotional day,” said Prasad -
and told him to send him a picture when he was done

Driving home, Prasad realized that what was going to be a goodbye gift was turning into something else.

“He said ‘see Jasmine, you can’t leave me now, you have to stay and help me build this thing. We have to build it together.'”

More motivated than ever, Prasad and Wilson’s family researched different ways to extend his funding. Eventually, they found Community Living BC’s Individualized Funding. After many anxious months, their application was approved, giving Wilson two years of additional funding.

During that time, Wilson has had some setbacks. But he’s also volunteered with the Vancouver Police Department, become a certified clown and take electric guitar lessons.

Not to mention finishing a certain Lego Set.

“Without Kevin Bieksa buying that Death Star, I’m not sure this all would have happened,” said Prasad.

“He had a pretty tough disease,” said Bieksa as he looked at the picture of Wilson and his Death Star.

“I just wanted to help him out a little bit. I just tried to help out around the holidays. It’s a pretty amazing accomplishment.”

“What an amazing man.”

Posted picture of the woman and the note online, and the photos have now gone viral
Lye received backlash over the move, with many criticizing him for potentially putting the woman at risk for physical abuse

^I would never do anything like that. You have absolutely no idea what the situation is. I try my best never to judge others. It's their business, not mine. Plus, it's kind of rude to read what's on other people's phones, laptop, or computer. I hate people who purposely go out of their way to see what's on the screen.

Isn't there a football game to watch? Must have been a boring game.
