My 23rd Birthday Weekend

This past Saturday was my birthday and B braved through the sudden snowfall in Vancouver from Seattle to celebrate it with me, which I am very grateful for. We went to Miku for lunch, which was delicious as always.     Afterwards, we went to the mall and B got me a new charm for my…

Chinese New Year 2017

Happy Chinese New Year of the Rooster! 新年快乐,恭喜发财,万事如意,身体健康,龙马精神,大吉大利! My mom and I made dumplings with vegetable fillings for the New Year and it was really yummy!  

Celebration of Light: US (Disney)

This year, I went to only one of the Celebration of Light events, namely the one that everyone was excited about: the United States as represented by Disney. Before we got to English Bay Beach, we got some early dinner at Peaceful Restaurant. The food was really nice and we were stuffed. On our walk…

Canada Day 2016

(Note: Some of these pictures are taken by B.) This past weekend was Canada Day and I celebrated it with B. We met up after lunch and headed down to where all the festivities were happening. Even while transiting, we could see the national colours being wore by a majority of the people. But, it…

Rollerblading at Stanley Park

Yesterday, B and I re-experienced our one year anniversary together by going rollerblading at Stanley Park. We first got a late, late brunch at IHOP, then worked it off at Stanley Park. It was a sunny day – a bit windy and chilly at times, but no rain (!), so it was a great day for…

Two Year Anniversary

B and I recently celebrated our two year anniversary. We had to postpone our anniversary date because of our exam schedules, but fortunately, it landed on another special date for us. We met up at the Vancouver Art Gallery for their “biggest exhibition yet,” MashUp: The Birth of Modern Culture. It featured artworks by Pablo…

Valentine’s Day 2016

On Valentine’s Day, B and I went to IHOP to grab brunch. I got my regular order of a typical brunch dish and B got a crepe. After we were stuffed, we left for Downtown to walk around a bit before our movie showing time. B had bought tickets for Deadpool and I was excited…

But I’m Feeling 22

So, I turned 22 recently. In the morning, I went volunteering, then had a little moi time for lunch, and went to my afternoon classes. After that, I booked it back home wanting to prepare before B arrived, but some time into the packed sardine bus ride, I discovered that we were on the same bus!…

#DATENIGHT | 003

This past Friday was B’s birthday and I made sure to prepare everything beforehand so nothing goes wrong. Reservations were made, gifts were prepared, and outfits were chosen (sort of). I made reservations at Blue Water Cafe + Raw Bar, remembering to leave specific instructions for how it was my boyfriend’s birthday and that the…

Surprise Birthday Party

A couple weeks back, about a month ago, some friends and I planned a surprise birthday party for friend C. There was already a birthday party but we found out later from her blog that it wasn’t what she wanted. So, we took the liberty of planning a surprise birthday for her when she least…

Canada Day 2015

Canada Day was Wednesday, and instead of enjoying my monthly ramyun right away, my parents pulled my brother and me off to eat out at Luxe Chinese Seafood Restaurant. Let’s just say it was a bit difficult to leave the house for it. Anyways, I took some pictures of the food we had. The food…

Hats Off Day Parade

Have I ever said how much I love my job? Well, here it is again: I love my job!It’s still marketing month, so we had a tent over at the annual Hats Off Day Parade where we got to know the neighbourhood. The theme was Hollywood (which I also took to mean Disney). So, most of…

One Year Anniversary

Saturday was our one year anniversary! Time really passed by quickly for us. It’s been a great year so far and I’m sure it’ll only get better from here on out! First, we got brunch at our traditional place for brunch at the International House of Pancakes (IHOP). After we were nice and full, we transited…

150. Chinese New Year Food

Chinese New Year just passed and here’s a blog post dedicated to all the delicious food I had to celebrate! This is from Strike Taiwanese Restaurant near campus that I went to with my brother. The service was pretty good and there weren’t too many people, which was nice. We were first seated at a small…

142. 21st Birthday

Yesterday, I turned 21. I was FaceTiming with my boyfriend, B, and starting at exactly midnight, the birthday wishes started coming in. First, my roommate swung open the bedroom door and wished me a “Happy Birthday” and shortly after that I received a call from Sam, so I had to end the FaceTime to pick…

131. Happy New Year

Happy New Year everyone and welcome for the Year of the Sheep! Another year older, another year wiser (?). Here is some of my quick documentation in my sketchbook of the past month leading up to the great big two o’ one five.
