Vancouver Chinese Garden: Love and Peace

Jomar and I spent the afternoon in the Sun Yat-Sen Park and Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Classical Chinese Garden. It was our first time to the west side of Downtown Vancouver and there were a lot of homeless people.

Sun Yat-Sen Park
It is a free public park built in a Chinese style, with mostly North American materials. It is connected to the Classical Chinese Garden by a pond.

It costs $14.00 to enter the Chinese Garden which includes unlimited tea and a guided tour. By area, it is much smaller compared to the adjacent park but it is well-maintained.

There are many sections to the Classical Chinese Garden and here are my photos of each section. Though small (comparing to our previous adventures), we had a great time walking around the park and garden, We learned who Dr. Sun Yat-Sen was and even tried calligraphy.

Reservation Number in Baguio 0906-591-6011. She doesn't reply though.

Review: The Bayleaf Hotel in Intramuros

Last December 6, 2013, our company had the annual planning. We wanted to conduct the planning within Metro Manila but the ambiance should not feel like you're in the busy metropolis. After searching and thinking, we end up with The Bayleaf Hotel in Intramuros.

For Php 1,250.00 per person, we had a conference room (complete with a television, marker, whiteboard, etc.) from 8:00am to 5:00pm, AM and PM snacks of our choice, and breakfast buffet at 9 Spoons. Not bad of a deal, right?
