Canada Day 2023

Happy Canada Day! Our celebration began last night when we had dinner at the only Indigenous restaurant in Vancouver, Salmon n' Bannock. We enjoyed Elk Steak and Bison Soup, among other dishes.

Today, our day started with breakfast at Tim Hortons. It's as cliche as it gets. Then, we walked across Granville Bridge on a beautiful clear day to Downtown Vancouver.

We were walking along Howe Street when my husband suggested we stop by and check out the activities happening in the northern plaza of the Vancouver Art Gallery. It was the Taiwanese Canadian Cultural Festival, and we enjoyed Taiwanese Sausage and had a Red Bean Wheel Cake for the first time.

Then, Canada Place is as bust as it gets. There's a main stage, a kids' area, and much more. We even saw a Filipino tinikling performance in Jack Poole Plaza before deciding to enjoy poutine and burger from one of the many food trucks.

Happy Canada Day!

As per our tradition, we got ice cream from Purdys before going to my parent's place in Richmond, BC, where we spent the rest of the day watching every Canadian sports team we followed, lose or draw. The Blue Jays and Whitecaps lost while the Canada Men's National Team drew. Spending time with my parents and siblings is always fun. My love tank is filled every time I go there.
