#DATENIGHT | 011

B and I went to the Vancouver Art Gallery last month and it was a lot of fun. I could write a whole paragraph on my experiences, but I think in this case, “a picture tells a thousand words” rings true.    

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…

Dine Out Vancouver | Boulevard Kitchen & Oyster Bar

B came back for the weekend and we had a great date night. We went to the art gallery first, then had dinner at Boulevard Kitchen & Oyster Bar for Dine Out Vancouver. The last time we went was after our date at the Aquarium this past summer.  

Beach, please.

On Sunday, B and I spent the day at Jericho beach after grabbing brunch at IHOP. I got my usual Breakfast Sampler, and B had one of their new dishes that had chicken, bacon, and potatoes, drizzled with hollandaise sauce. Once we were full, we grabbed some stuff at the mall, then continued our journey to the…

Food Travel: Suika

Suika, the Japanese word for watermelon, was where B and I had our delicious dinner on Sunday after a fun and relaxing day at Jericho beach. The last time we came here, we had ordered their Deluxe “Suika Box”. They described this box as a jewelry box as it contains nine kinds of appetizers. Just like last…

#DATENIGHT | 010

Season 6 for Suits came out last month, and B and I finally watched the first two episodes today! I don’t want to give away any spoilers, but there were already a couple scenes that made it unbearable to continue – not because it was bad, but because of the plot line which seemed to…

#DATENIGHT | 009

B and I went out on Sunday to catch the movie, Bad Moms. It was a great flick and, although it was a bit inappropriate at times (especially a certain scene with a certain pink hoodie), it had many laugh out loud moments. I especially enjoyed the music video-like scenes, as well as how the film portrayed moms,…

#DATENIGHT | 008

Once I finished work today, I worked out with a co-worker before getting a ride from her to meet up with B for dinner. We went to Wings Tap & Grill and were told that they had changed their Sunday wings special to include Wednesdays as well! What a pleasant surprise. We ordered three different types…

Food Travel: Coffee Monster

After dinner today, B and I went to a nearby café to get dessert. The place was called Coffee Monster and I found their logo weirdly cute. Its interior was very different to Choco Coo Café, but it was also a style that I like – raw and unfinished; The ceiling was left as is…

Food Travel: Choco Coo Cafe

A friend of B and mine has been eager to go to Choco Coo Cafe for dessert ever since he heard about it, but when we hang out, we never seem to get a chance to go. He’s been obsessed with going there – showing us pictures and elevating our expectations each time. So, on…

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…

Weekend Wonders | 008

This past weekend, B and I went to watch Finding Dory at New Westminster. We first got brunch at IHOP and I had my usual Breakfast Sampler while B had a similar meal, but with french toast instead of pancakes. After brunch, we still had some time to wander around before the movie started, so we…

#DATENIGHT | 007

(Note: A lot of these pictures are taken by B.) B and I went to the aquarium recently and we got to see all the shows that we weren’t able to watch when we worked at a summer camp as we had to take care of the kids in our groups. We were able to…

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…

#DATENIGHT | 006

On Friday, we went to Granville Island. We arrived before the sun had set so we were able to take some nice scenic pictures before our dinner. We had dinner at The Sandbar and the seafood was really fresh. We had Fried Oysters and Spicy Green Beans for appetizers, and B got their Housemade Clam Chowder, which…

#DATENIGHT | 005

On Friday, we went to watch Zootopia and it is now on my Top Movies list. I would say this was much better than Inside Out for me because I loved all the puns and references that Zootopia had. The character development was good, and although the plot is simple, the amount of details and…

Food Travel: Guu Garden

For our date night, B and I went to Guu Garden after one of my roommates went there recently for a date and raved about it. It was pretty busy when we got there, but good thing we made a reservation ahead of time. We ordered some things from their Daily Special Menu, which is…

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…

Dine Out Vancouver 2016 @ YEW Restaurant + Bar

  Finishing off the festival, we had our last dine out at Four Season hotel’s YEW Restaurant + Bar. The hotel was really nice with its interior decors and the restaurant seating was comfy as well. Usually I don’t like sitting on the sofa-like seats because it sinks too low and the table becomes too…
