Churros Hunt is Over! The Richmond Night Market Adventure

I don't think people read my blog so I found work in Canada! Yay! To end my first week at work, Therese and Alyanna went to check out the Richmond Night Market.

It was AWESOME! Seriously, you should check it out. The entrance is $3.25 for general admission. What did we enjoy while inside?

The Games - it was Alyanna's first time to try the carnival, you-have-no-chance-of-winning games. Haha! We tried two games, the pop the balloon with dart to get a stuff toy, which we won (Thanks to Alyanna's strong arms). The other game we played was shoot round hoops to bottles, which we failed. It was fun.

Alyanna for the win!

The Food - there were many food stalls. Though, they sell almost the same kind of things. On estimate, there's multiple stalls for takoyaki, Chinese noodle, barbeque, etc. You get the picture. Deciding where to eat and what to eat is a huge challenge. I had a curry onion wrap which was surprisingly delicious.

But the highlight is the lone Churros booth. After months of searching, we found a Churros that tasted the same as back in the Philippines. The hunt is finally over! Read my Churros Hunt post.

We also had 1 plain churro (which was delicious as is)

Free Performances - we stayed to watch a lady (I forgot her name) sing her hearts out at the stage. She was good!

The dinosaurs. - It's a pretty cool display but does not really add any value to the night market experience.

What I didn't like about the Richmond Night Market?
  1. Cash only! We didn't have enough cash to spend. I wanted to try the ramen booth and other food items. Oh well.
  2. There's too many people in the food section. It was difficult to check what's available in each booth because of the crowd.
Overall, I'll come back again probably with more cash to spend on food and games.

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.

Let's help build a home for my birthday

My birthday is coming up (it's on November 8) and instead of gifts, I am hoping you could donate to, specifically in helping Kenyan families rebuild their lives by providing stable homes. With Safe Housing, we can all make a difference in providing stable homes to 149 families in 11 centers across Kenya.

We all dream of having our own house. I know I do. But when we think about having our own home, we think about how many bedroom and bathrooms we want, what color scheme we will use on the wall, the style of our kitchen. Meanwhile, these families just want shelter from strong winds and torrential rain and I hope that we can make a difference.

For a minimum of $10 CAD, you will give me a birthday gift and we will help provide a home to this families.

Give a Gift

My fundraiser code is 8-10011711 so Compassion can keep track of this little campaign. Please feel free to share this short post to your friends and help me celebrate my birthday this year!
