Hunt for Churros

My sisters have been craving for churros for awhile now. In the Philippines, Taco Bell offers Churros with chocolate dip that they love. Thus, my hunt for Churros in Metro Vancouver begins.

I was in Downtown Vancouver yesterday and decided I could spend the afternoon searching for Churros. According to Foursquare (my trusted and fave application), I could go to Tacofino Cantina, a food truck along Howe Street since it's the closest to my location yesterday. I walked 10 minutes and asked if they have Churros available. It was out of stock! The guy suggested I go to their main restaurant at Gastown but I am too lazy to walk all the way there.

Last week, I also went to Cambie Village to search for churros. The only restaurant there that offers churros is Las Tortas and it's also out of stock.

Going back to yesterday, I remember Therese saying that Cineplex sells churros so I searched for the nearest Cineplex and the Scotiabank Theatre is a 6-minute walk. I also did a quick Google search for the food stalls to make sure that they actually sell churros.

I searched the menu of OutTakes Backstage Bistro and yes, they sell churros! I started my walk going to the Theatre in high spirit, excited that at last I will be able to bring churros to my sisters. Alas, upon arriving at the Theatre, I won't be able to buy snacks because you have to have a movie ticket to access the snacks area. Ugh.

I am now tired and hungry. I started my walk going to the Sky Train station and realized that there is a newly opened Cineplex on my way home. I will be able to descend in the Marine Drive station where the newly opened Cineplex is located. I don't want to get my hopes up but finally, the Outtakes Backstage Bistro is accessible without having to buy a movie ticket and yes, the churros are available!

Cheeseburger

I purchased a burger and added churros to my meal. After eating my Cheeseburger Deluxe meal, I carefully wrapped the churros to bring home to my sisters. I feel like a success.

As soon as I arrived home, my sisters were nagging me to give them the churros already. It was hilarious. When I gave it to them and we all took a bite... moment of truth. They both said that it tasted like cinnamon sticks and not the churros we were familiar with. Oh well.

When I stopped following job search advice, I found work!

Immigrating to a new country is never easy. The culture shock, temperature changes, and being unemployed are just some of the many things one would experience when moving to a new country.

In my case, I immigrated to Canada from Philippines. Not much culture shock since Philippines was heavily influenced by the Americans but the temperature change from hot to cold was something my body still needs adjusting to. The most difficult challenge of all (at least for me) was being unemployed.


I was happy with my career at Philippines. I work with amazing people (hello QSR team!) and I love what I do - training and helping schools use Google Apps in the classroom, is a rewarding thing to do. I am not talking about the monetary reward but more on the fulfillment of working with teachers and their professional growth.


When I arrive in Canada, I was obviously unemployed. It was tough. I was so confident that I'll be able to find work right away but I didn't. I am lucky, though, that my p…

Review of Joy Bus: The Deluxe Coach of Genesis Transport, Inc.

During my trip to Baguio last March 2, 2013, Jomar and I (as recommended by friends) decided to try the Joy Bus of Genesis. We went to the bus terminal the day before just to make sure we have a ticket going to Baguio and asked for the cell phone number of the person to contact in Baguio so we could reserve our returning ticket. Reservation Number in Baguio 0906-591-6011. She doesn't reply though.
