Rediffusion DY&R

very smart! although the escalator might be a little too fast for it, i would definitely go back up a floor just to see the whole view of it.

Happy Chinese New Year!

Went to Aberdeen Centre last night at 8pm. I'd never seen so many people there. I do not enjoy going to Richmond, however last night was surprisingly pleasant. Talking about personal spaces, there wasn't much yesterday, but I enjoyed it, it made me feel closer to the other people. The way the escalators and washrooms are arranged makes you walk around in circles (=business for their stores) was actually not bad for me as a flâneur. I actually had lots of work to do but it was nice for me to get out and experience this-- was totally not my intension of going there. The mall was open till 1230am last night which was unbelievable for Vancouver! I miss the night life in the sleepless city of Asia where people are basically out during all times of day.

*note: These photos shown here do not portray the amount of people that were present at all. It was actually extremely crowded there, finding a spot with a good view at the center was so hard. There was a boundary set to separate the performers and audiences, and people are pretty strict about crossing that boundary.

Cat Bus

Somebody please bring me there!

Attractivenessa and Interpersonal Space

When a person is about to cross a street, general arousal created by an intruder who violates his interpersonal space would probably have an immediate effect on the speed at which the street is crossed. When the intruder is attractive, the objective of the pedestrian is still to get across the street, but at the same time there might be an inclination to approach the intruder. If the intruder is unattractive, however, the objective of crossing the street may be pursued with greater haste in an effort to avoid further contact with the aversive intruder. The present study investigated the possibility that intrusions into personal space can cause different affective experiences and hence different behaviors.

I came across this during research and it made me chuckle in the library. I hope people would NEVER not cross the street because they saw me-- that would make me cry inside.
