Food Guide for Granville Island Public Market

Image
If you have been checking out my blog so far, you would know that I work close to Granville Island and for my first year, my colleagues and I would eat lunch daily at the Granville Island Public Market. It's been my goal to try all the food places in the market and I, finally, finished it last month.



Tips and ThoughtsBest place to sit: Near Blue Parrot. The tables in that section is big enough to hold 6-8 people, ideal for big groups plus it has the best view.
Best time to visit: If you have time to spare, I highly recommend going after the lunch crowd. During summer months, bus tours stop at Granville Island for lunch and it's nearly impossible to get a chair and it's just crowded. I enjoy the peace of the market for early dinner or late snack between 4-6 pm. Don't forget that the market closes at 7 pm.

Water source: If you don't want to spend money on drinks or just want water, there's a drinking fountain where you can refill your water bottle near Granny Muffi…

World Food Tour: A Trip to East Africa at Simba's Grill

Image
As part of my World Food Tour series, Jomar and I went to Simba's Grill Vancouver. They are an African Restaurant according to Foursquare.

It's our first time to try African cuisine. Let's see how it went.
African Restaurant Category There are 7 restaurants categorized in Foursquare as 'African Restaurant' and I searched the description for usually the top 3 and decide from there.


I would prefer to go to the first suggestion BUT in this case Jambo grill is a fusion of four countries, Iran, India, Africa and Canada which is why I decided to go to Simba's Grill. They described the cuisine as 'East African Fusion Cuisine'. That's good enough for my food tour since they're combining favorites from East Africa.

Simba's Grill We arrived at West End at around 6:30pm and we didn't know that there's an abundance of restaurant along Denman Street. There are even line up to a Ramen place nearby.

It's easy to spot Simba's Grill because it…

Quiet, Busy May

I have been so busy at work and with my new role as Customer Success that I didn't have any new food adventure the last two weeks.

Last night, I did spend two hours writing a short post in LinkedIn about my experience as customer success manager so far.

Personally, it's a quiet and busy May. However, I am always excited to go to work and help customers and Geppetto users as best as I could. I've never felt this energized in a long time. Thanks Gumstix and Gordon for the opportunity to grow my muscles in promoting and selling Geppetto. Always happy and grateful with the team of engineers and developers I work with everyday.

Though, I think I need a vacation soon.

Everyone wants to change the world

I would like to think that everyone wants to change the world and (hopefully) make it better. We want to solve poverty, racism, sexism, war, and all the problems in the world. In trying to think of all the negative, we get overwhelmed and are unsure how to start.

That's me 8 years ago. I just graduated from college and I want to change the world.

How I change the world? I still want to change the world but instead of getting overwhelmed from all the negative news being thrown at me everyday. I realized (5 years after graduation) that I can change the world - MY WORLD.

This is not conceited that it's about me and my world. But changing the portion of the world that I can actually change.
To solve poverty, I make sure that my family has something to eat three times a day and that we have a loving home. But that's just meeting basic needs, living out of poverty means having hope in the future. I make sure to give hope and encouragement to my parents, siblings, husband, colleag…
