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…

Weekend Wonders | 009

This weekend, B and I hung out with the same friends again, and we watched a movie together on Friday. It was an unexpected movie and the actors and actresses in the movie crushed my innocent childhood dreams about them; It had Zac Efron, Anna Kendrick, Adam Devine, and lastly, Sugar (from YTV). The movie…

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…

Weekend Wonders | 007

This weekend involved a lot of food, starting on Friday after work. B waited for me at work and after the team’s debrief for the day was done we went to Metrotown to get some stuff, and left when we got hungry for Wings. This time, instead of getting wings, I chose the “build your own…

Weekend Wonders | 006

This weekend was surreal and I managed to check off two items off my bucket list: eat a Bobby Wing and do the Grouse Grind. It all started on Friday after work when we had a “new meets old” staff social for our team. We first went to a bar/restaurant, had some trouble finding a…

Weekend Wonders | 005

This past weekend was very eventful since we had a long weekend. The fun started after work on Friday when we had a staff dinner social at Kyo Korean BBQ & Sushi House. We did their All You Can Eat menu and we were extremely bloated after that! Good thing I wore stretchy, elastic shorts…

Weekend Wonders | 004

After work on Friday, our team had a spontaneous staff social amidst the Gotcha war going on right now. In the morning, I disguised myself so I wouldn’t be caught and I saw the person who had me as a target get on my usual bus. Still half asleep, I sneakily get on the same…

Weekend Wonders | 003

This was the last weekend before work officially starts. So, I made the most of it! On Saturday, an old friend came back from Toronto and we reunited with our childhood friends. It’s pretty amazing how we’re still together after so many years – it’s been since elementary school and now some of us are…

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…

Epik High Concert

On Sunday, May 31, 2015, I checked off two things off my bucket list: go to a concert and meet someone famous. At precisely 7:00 PM that night, these two things occurred simultaneously. This was outside the venue, which was at Vogue Theatre located downtown Vancouver. This is inside the theatre with the stage set…

Weekend Wonders | 002

The weather surprised me this week. Although there was forecast for rain, the sun held up and stayed (albeit some drizzle). Here are some pictures I took of the remaining pink on the trees before the weekend. There was also an Art Pop Up event downtown so my roommate J and I left early afternoon…

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…

Weekend Wonders | 001

This past weekend was both relaxing and fun. On Saturday, my roommate J and I ordered pizza for lunch as Dominoes was having a 50% off their pizza. We got a half-and-half pizza and customized it to our taste: salami and pineapple (with no cheese) and sausage and mushroom (with cheese). They tasted alright but I…

154. Spring Forward

Fall back, Spring forward! Daylight Savings time and it’s International Women’s Day! To all the women out there, you are beautiful! This is what I’ve been up to during this gorgeous spring weather full of sun and pink petals falling. B is leaving for co-op this summer and I got him Danbo (from Yotsuba & !)…
