Poutine with Purpose 2019 Vancouver

Image
Jomar and I love to eat out a minimum once a week. He's always on the lookout for events that we can do during the weekend when he stumbled upon Poutine with Purpose.
For every poutine you buy and enjoy during Poutine with Purpose Week, one simple, healthy meal will be provided to a youth in need. Saturday Evening We attended the 5 PM Mass at St. Augustine's and decided to have dinner at one of the restaurants on the list. We went to Colony Entertainment District to try the Colony Poutine.

It was a busy Saturday, and the table we're eating on is reserved at 7:30 PM, so we quickly enjoyed our dinner and walked to the bus stop to go home. Looking towards the direction of Granville Bridge is this beautiful sunset glow. I love Vancouver!
Sunday Afternoon Sunday is usually reserved for staying at home and watching NFL all day. However, since it's a beautiful clear day, Jomar and I decided to take a walk by the Seawall between Granville Bridge to Olympic Village.

Vancouver Whitecaps FC vs Columbus Crew SC

It was one of those Saturday when we decided to watch the Vancouver Whitecaps FC live at BC Place. It's their second to the last game at home for the season.

The day started with Jomar's dentist appointment. After that, we decided to walk across Cambie Bridge. It's the last bridge crossing the False Creek that we haven't crossed yet on foot. It's the safest bridge to walk to compared to the Granville Bridge and not as noisy as Burrard Bridge.


When we got to Downtown Vancouver, we went to the Vancouver Public Library's main branch to see what books they have on sale. I called my brother to check if he's already in Downtown. We had lunch at Big G, as suggested by Jomar, because he knows I love Taiwanese fried chicken, plus they're relatively empty compared to other places nearby.


After eating lunch, we headed to BC Place and watched a rather dull game until Fredy Montero scored a goal in the added minutes of the game.

Labour Day Long Weekend: Taiwanfest 2019 in Vancouver

Image
It's a beautiful cloudy Sunday, and it's a long weekend, so we have no work tomorrow (Yay!).
Morning Our Sunday morning routine includes a quick breakfast at Tim Hortons and walking to St. Augustine's Church for Mass.


Today is unique because instead of going home right away, we walked across Burrard Bridge to Downtown Vancouver to join the Taiwanfest festivities and enjoy yummy food.

Taiwanfest 2019 We walked along Granville Street from Robson to Dunsmuir to check each booth and learn more about Taiwan.





We were also just in time for this performance:

After that, we went in front of the Vancouver Art Gallery, where the food stalls and the main stage are located. We purchased noodles for Jomar (because he couldn't eat solid food yet), and I got Taiwanese fried chicken.




Vancouver Public Library After a food coma lunch, we went to the library and discovered that there's a section of the rooftop open called Phillips, Hager and North Garden.


We spent an hour at the libra…
