Pinoy Fiesta 2019 in Vancouver

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. Pahiyas Bahay Kubo 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!

It will be a day trip. It's our first "vacation" trip EVER as a married couple (not counting going back to the Philippines). 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. Tim Hortons breakfast Our bus arrived with Mickey is our tour guide and bus driver for the day. It's a full bus.
