White Rock Beach and Pier: Food, Family, and View

Image
Our family loves the TV series Psych. We love Shawn and Gus and the relationship they have with each other. After watching the series and browsing YouTube for behind the scenes, interviews, etc., we found out that almost all episodes were filmed in British Columbia. Episodes that would feature the University of British Columbia, Stanley Park, and Queen Elizabeth Park always made my heart giddy with joy since I've been to those places. To seal our Psych addiction, our family went to White Rock BC where the agency office of Shawn and Gus is.

VanDusen Botanical Garden: Love and View

Image
I love botanical gardens! When I was in Singapore, I spent a few hours at the Singapore Botanic Garden. It was very relaxing, sitting in benches under the trees, smelling the flowers, and enjoying the cool breeze. It was great!

Now, that I am in Canada, one of my places to visit is the VanDusen Botanical Garden. Last Wednesday, Jomar and I spent 1-5pm walking around the vast land area.


The Vancouver Aquarium: Love, Experience, and View

Image
I wish we had more time in Vancouver Aquarium.

Jomar and I arrived at the Vancouver Aquarium yesterday at around 1:00 PM and the aquarium closes at 5:00 PM. Four hours is not enough inside this sanctuary for marine life. The entrance at VanAqua costs $31.00 (plus taxes) per person and since it's a nonprofit organization the money goes to saving and preservation of animal life from the sea, rivers, and lakes.


The first section we visited in the aquarium is Discover Rays. We touched the back of a live stingray! It was cool!

Centennial Beach: Family and View

Image
Today, our family celebrated Victoria Day by having a picnic at Centennial Beach. It was our first time to visit a beach in Canada and my first time to have a picnic with Jomar.


My dad cooked the most delicious Filipino adobo for sharing. It was so good that the other family decided to bring some home with them. My mom was thrilled because a family brought ginataan, a Filipino sweet dessert she'd been craving for a few weeks now.

Food Trip in Richmond (Steveston Village): The Crab King Restaurant

Image
Right beside the Steveston Fisherman's Wharf, The Crab King Restaurant offers fresh crab and seafood that's delicious but a bit pricey.


We went there at around 5:00 PM yesterday, still a lot early than the dinner crowd. It's more of an afternoon snack after a tiring game of Lazer Tag for my siblings. We were celebrating Alyanna's birthday. These are the food we had:


Food for the Week: Peri Peri Chicken

Image
The first time I tried Peri-Peri Chicken I had to Google search what it is and its origin.
"Piri-piri chicken is a spicy dish with roots in both Africa and Portugal." - www.epicurious.com Below is the Peri-Peri Chicken I have tried so far.



Food Trip in Vancouver (Fairview): Marble Slab Creamery

Image
I will tell you a little secret. Ever since I was in high school, I've always dreamt of having the Dairy Queen ice cream cake KitKat flavour. Well, I've never got one. So for mother's day, this year, my siblings and I purchased an ice cream cake from Marble Slab Creamery. It was delicious! I wanted to cry.
