Food and Friends

When my friends and I hang out, eating is usually involved. I guess it’s great to have friends who love to eat and try new places! Since midterms are over, I had some free time to hang out with Es S and S.A.W. and we went on a mini food adventure.

We met up at Basho cafe where I finally had the chance to try one of their savory food items:

I ordered a tuna tataki salad + lunch set which includes a green tea, soup of the day and mini sweets. The salad was delcious; the combination of the tender tuni tataki topped with ginger garlic sauce (sauce similar to the sauce you dip hainese chicken with), pickeled carrots and daikon and crisp lettuce dressed with a nice sauce was divine. I also ordered a matcha madeleine, which was also good.

Next off, we headed to Richmond for some Asian food! We decided on Aberdeen foot court:

We got deep fried chicken wings to share from Wo Fung Dessert and they were crispy and delectable. A must try if you’re at Aberdeen food court!

Lastly, for dessert, we went to Bubble Fruity for some Chinese desserts:

Pictured above is durian flavour sago cream, mango flavour sago cream and taro flavour sago cream with pearls. We all enjoyed our desserts and it was a great way to end our food adventure.

 

Case of the Mondays

Hello! As you can tell, I’ve been MIA lately. I just started a new job and volunteer position, and along with that I’ve been having midterms non-stop for the past couple of weeks. I applaud those who are able to go to school full time, work and manage to obtain high grades because I am finding it difficult to find a balance. As my title states, I have a case of the Mondays, more so this Monday due to the loss of an hour of sleep from day light savings. Do any of you suffer from the case of the Mondays? For me, sleeping in on the weekends and having to wake up at 6:30 makes me zombie-like on Mondays

Since I haven’t done much lately, here are some pictures from last month…
