Pinoy Fiesta 2019 in Vancouver

Image
Jomar has been great at finding activities and events we should go to during the weekend. Today, we went to Memorial South Park at 41st Avenue and Ross Street in search of Filipino food and a sense of home in Vancouver.

We visited each booth representing either a company sponsor or a fiesta in the Philippines. There was a Pahiyas booth and Sto. Nino one. Initially, we couldn't find where all the food stalls are, but we saw people crowding a section of the park and knew right away it's there.





The first order of business is to get Pinoy BBQ. Then, we had dinuguan, tocino, kwek-kwek, turon, and finished our meal with Potato Corner fries and Sago't Gulaman. Food coma!




We watched the parade as well. It was great!


Landsea Tours: Whistler & Shannon Falls Tour

Jomar and I decided to do what most tourists do when they visit British Columbia - go to Whistler. I decided to pay Landsea Tours for bus transportation going to and from Whistler. It will be a day trip.


On the way to Whistler Village We started the day by walking to Park Inn & Suites by Radisson. It's the closest hotel to our place and is our designated pick-up point. We arrived an hour early and had breakfast at Tim Hortons across the street.

Our bus arrived with Mickey is our tour guide and bus driver for the day. It's a full bus. We picked up more tourists around Downtown, Vancouver. Then, we started our journey.


We were rewarded with a beautiful view of Howe Sound as the bus driver through the Sea to Sky Highway. My photos did not give justice to the beautiful view, so here's a short video and a glimpse of what's outside the window (with background narration from Mickey).

Shannon Falls and Stawamus Chief On the way to Whistler, we stopped by for like 20 minute…
