To The Year That Was 2015

Image
2015 had been a challenging year.

I decided to travel less for pleasure this year because I was saving up for my upcoming migration to Canada. I also decided to be more responsible about what I earned and decided to make some investments. Travel is great. It is a way to learn more about people, culture, and about myself. But, at 25, I am not getting any younger, and I need to save up for retirement and for my future.

Although, it sounded "dark," God still blessed me with opportunities to visit places. Below is a summary of where I've been this 2015.

January - Michelle, Jomar and I, Mama Chelle and her family, and Wayne with his family decided to visit the historic town of Taal, Batangas.


February - Most of the love month until April, I've been travelling to Calamba and Canlubang, Laguna for a project. I enjoyed it a lot because I was getting to know my teammates (Carla, Vanie, Patrick, and Wei) really well and was learning about our client in a different industry.

Food Trip in Richmond (Alexandra Road): Seto Japanese Restaurant

Last Christmas, I gave my siblings gifts that they want to have. I never purchased anything for my parents so yesterday I decided to bring them to a Japanese restaurant because my mom had been raving about wanting to have Ramen and Tempura. After doing research, we were initially going to eat at Gmen Ramen Shop, but are not open on Sundays, so we end up at Sato Japanese Restaurant.


Sato is a posh, upscale Japanese restaurant which offers a lot of famous Japanese food. They have the usual sushi and sashimi, takoyaki and okonomiyaki, ramen, tempura, and so much more. Plus, the ambiance of the place is Japanese. Below is the food we ordered, and I was severely bloated after this delicious meal. They have all of my favourite Japanese food!

Food Trip in Richmond (McLennan North): Sakura Sushi

I love Japanese cuisine. Currently, it's my favourite cuisine. Ever since coming from the Philippines and stopping over Japan for a 2-hour layover and eating my favourite Japanese Curry, I have been searching for the best place to try it in Canada, and I end up at Sakura Sushi.

Earlier today, I slipped on melted snow. I also attended a seminar which got me a little bit sad, so I need my comfort Japanese food. Sakura Sushi is a small no-frills restaurant that offers good Japanese food. When I go to Japanese restaurants, I have this list of food I must try which is Japanese Curry (if it's available), Gyoza (must-have), and Salmon/Tuna Sashimi. Upon reviewing the Sakura Sushi menu, they don't have Japanese Curry, but thankfully they have Gyoza and both Salmon and Tuna Sashimi. I was famished, so I ordered Chicken Karaage and a bowl of rice.





I loved their Chicken Karaage but was disappointed with the Sashimi. Nonetheless, it was in an accessible location, and when I need a lit…

Food Trip in Vancouver (Downtown): Fat Burger

Jomar, Hovey, and I had late lunch at Fat Burger because apparently, my brother had been wanting to eat here for a while now. The service was excellent, the burgers were good, and serving-size were huge.
