Time for Winter, Time for a New Parka – S12E05

The Signature Parka
It was a week after Black Friday and being a Hudson’s Bay fanatic, they had a one day sale for the Hudson’s Bay Collection products. This particular jacket caught my interest and it has been released since September. Just in time for Winter, it’s the Hudson’s Bay Collection Signature Parka.

Regular price at $499 (Canadian), on that Friday (December 2nd), it was on sale for $299. I couldn’t pass up on the deal since I was in need of a new winter jacket. The previous winter jacket has shown some wear and tear. There’s no to continue wearing it for Winter 2016 and 2017.

The HBC Signature Parka looks very stylish with the famous multistripes. There’s several pockets and two drawcords for the hood and waist. The fur from the hood is coyote. It’s puffy throughout the jacket but more noticeable in the bottom. I have worn it inside the house and it got pretty warm.

I can’t wait to wear it outside as Ottawa got some snow and hope to keep it in good care and have it last for years to come.

Went to The Josh Reichmann Oracle Band Concert – S04E18

Glenn Nuotio at Zaphod Beeblebrox on March 6, 2009.
Last night (Friday), I went to Zaphod Beeblebrox for the Josh Reichmann Oracle Band concert. The two openers were New Teeth and Glenn Nuotio. I did not get to take photos during the headlining band because my brother used the camera throughout the whole time. The photo displayed is during Glenn Nuotio’s performance.
Overall, the 3 performances were excellent. The first band was pumped up because there was more of a female following. Glenn’s performance was mellower and then Josh Reichmann Oracle Band lit up their performance.

New Jacket
Before going to Zaphod’s, I decided to go to Roots in the Byward Market and shop for a new jacket. Thankfully, I got a $100 Roots gift card and what a good way to have a change in fashion come Spring. I went for this track jacket called Liard Track Jacket (link won’t be up for long, it will be temporary). What I didn’t know was that the jacket got the smell of Lush soaps. I couldn’t believe that Lush, next door to Roots can have a strong odor spread over to them. I hope I can I take photos of my new look soon. As you see from the previous entry that I have been wearing my green jacket for over a year. It’s nice to have a change.
Last thing, I didn’t know we have to change our clocks one hour ahead. Well, I am happy as usual because I like to follow Hong Kong time since it’s similar but at different timezones.
