Weekend Recap: Enjoying the Hot Weather In Vancouver

This past weekend in Vancouver has been hot temperature wise. Originally I had plan to go on a road trip with some school friends but I just started a new job and I wasn’t sure if i could get time off, so I didn’t end up going. Instead, I took advantage of the nice weather and spent time with family and high school friends! My weekend was a little too indulgent, but it’s Monday and I’m back to the clean eating grind.

I spent most of my weekend at the beach, more specifically at Spanish Banks. I like Spanish Banks because I find it less busy than the other beaches in Vancouver and there is free parking!

Friday: froyo, beach and family time

Prior to the beach, my cousin and I stopped by Scoop on West 4th to get some frozen yogurt. I got the lavender flavour while my cousin got the matcha flavour.

Spanish Banks was really quiet on the Friday afternoon we went. I didn’t mind though, it was quite nice actually.

After the beach I had a family dinner with my moms side of the family. I didn’t take any pictures of that but there was a lot of food!

Saturday: catching up with old friends and the beach again

Recent Purchases

Now that finals are over, I finally went shopping. Here are some things I bought on Sunday:

{Half dozen Belgium waffles from Damien’s Belgium Waffle’s in Steveston}

{Moon blouse from The Bay. It was on sale and came out to be around $23}

{Sleeveless blouse from Old Navy. Inspired by spring’s bright hues, I decided to add some colour into my otherwise colourless closet}

{Long sleeve shirt from Old Navy}

Sick :(

Hello everyone! Sorry for not posting anything lately, I’ve been busy studying and now I’m sick 😦

I went to Fujiya to get some lunch today:

Decided to try the Japanese curry which consists of sweet Japanese curry, potatoes, carrots and chunks of beef. Not bad for $4.95!

These cream caramel puddings are my favourite! I saw that they had a new flavour, Royal Milk Tea flavour so I got that along with a Matcha flavour.

Saturday after a studying, I was craving macarons…

Christmas Market

I went to the Christmas Market on 2 separate days but only took pictures on the day I went with Es S. Here are some pictures:

Pretty ornaments

Nut crackers

There was also a carousel and it looked really nice at night

And of course the food. Here’s what we ate:

Belgium Waffles. Most people ordered the German waffle on a stick, but for the same price I could get this which has more waffle. I must say these were some expensive waffles…

On the left is my kiddie bratwurst and on the right is Es S’ pork and veal sausage. Both come with onions and sauerkraut. These were delicious.

Sorry for the lack of post, I’ve been lazy :P. Christmas in two days, can’t wait!

Finally the weekend

This week seemed really long for some reason. The weather has been pretty good these past days but I’ve been having troubles sleeping lately.

After class on Tuesday, Es S and I watched “Sisters and Brothers”, from the Vancouver International Film Festival. I was fortunate enough to be able to watch the last screening at the Vogue theater.The main reason I watched it because my love Cory Monteith is in it 😀

This movie was shot in Vancouver and in one of Cory’s scene they went to Pho Saigon ( which is somewhat close to my house). He was so close, yet so far lol 😦

On Friday,I met up with S to eat at Marulilu cafe and watch “what’s your number”

Chris Evans is so hot!

Here’s what I got from Marulilu:

Cafe Medina

556 Beatty Street                                                                                               Vancouver BC                                                                      http://www.medinacafe.com/

I’ve seen a lot of photos and posts about the waffles at Cafe Medina, and being a waffle lover, I have been wanting to try it for a while now.

I went to Cafe Medina with S a while back. When we went, they said we would have to wait 10 minutes, but we only had to wait a few minutes.

The place is a lot smaller than I expected and dimly lit.

S and I both got one waffle each with 1 topping. S got waffle with raspberry caramel topping and I got waffle with white chocolate pistachio rosewater topping. Both were equally delicious.
