Pokemon GO Fest 2021

Image
On July 17, 2016 (five years ago), the Pokemon GO game became available in Canada. I played it quite often with my youngest sister. However, as with a lot of things, my interest died down. Until I married Jomar and he moved to Canada permanently. He kept playing it every day. I used to get upset, then I realize either I can fight him or join him. Thus, here were are. We play Pokemon GO every day.  Over the weekend (July 17 and 18, 2021), Jomar and I spent most of the time playing the game because it's Pokemon GO Fest.  Pokemon GO Fest 2021 Shirt On Saturday, we spent the whole day (from 10 in the morning until 6 in the evening) in a nearby park where you can reach four Poke Stops from one location. We wore our Pokemon GO Fest 2021 shirt purchased from the Pokemon Center. Our favourite spot in the neighbourhood. Five different food trucks Then on Sunday, we spent most of the day walking around between gyms to battle legendary Pokemon. It was a lot of fun and exhausting. The night be

Day 3 of Victoria Trip | 3 Days 2 Nights Long Weekend Trip to Victoria, BC

I have been eager to travel since the pandemic began. My mom is celebrating her 60th birthday this year and on the same weekend as Father's day which means my siblings and I can plan a trip and won't feel guilty splurging them a little bit. You can read Day 1 and Day 2 on their respective links. Day 3 (June 20, 2021) I can't believe it's our last half day in Victoria, BC. St. Andrew's Cathedral We started the day by visiting St. Andrew's Catholic Cathedral. Unfortunately, we can't go inside because of the pandemic, so we had to say our prayers of thanksgiving outside. St. Andrew's Catholic Cathedral St. Andrew's Catholic Cathedral in Downtown Victoria, BC Breakfast at Shine Cafe We were originally planning to go to the famous Jam Cafe. However, it's like a 10-minute walk and I still felt exhausted from all the walking we did yesterday. As such, I opened my trusted Foursquare app and found Shine Cafe two blocks away.

Day 1 (June 18, 2021) Day 2 (June 19, 2021) We started today with breakfast at Q At The Empress . Then, we took a bus to The Butchart Gardens. The Butchart Gardens It's a beautiful 55 acres of gardens envisioned by Jennie Butchart. She transformed a former quarry into a lush garden haven that has become a National Historic Site of Canada. I don't think sharing pictures would give justice to the different gardens inside. My personal favourite is the Sunken Garden and Japanese Garden. I have a bias for gardens which is why VanDusen Botanical Garden in Vancouver is my number one favourite spot in the city. You can just sit in one of the benches and feel all your worries melt away. I didn't get that

Day 1 (June 18, 2021) We started our trip with an Uber ride to my parent's place in Richmond, BC. My dad is so excited to see me 😂! He cooked all my favourite dishes because I know I will feast on them - he prepared tortang talong, boneless bangus, and chicken adobo. Sarap! At 11:30, we started our drive to Tsawwassen Ferry Terminal. We got lost because of Apple Maps and we were teasing my younger sister about it the whole time. I guess it won't be a family road trip if you don't make the wrong exit and have to find a way out the highway. Spirit of Vancouver Island Ferry Our boarding time is 1:00 PM and it's our first time riding the ferry. It was a short 90-minute ride. The water was calm and you can clearly see the islands
