Bubble Queen’s 7 Flavor Mochi

EDIT: Just so anyone’s interested, the hours for Bubble Queen are as follows: M-Thu 2-8pm, F-Sat 2-12am, Sun 2-6pm. If you can’t tell already, my favorite BBT place is Bubble Queen.  Honestly, I’ve had an assortment of drinks from them and I’ve NOT had a miss yet. But it may not be obvious but they […]

Xi’An Cuisine 西安小吃 @ Richmond Public Market

Richmond Public Market is probably one of the worst managed “shopping centres” in the Lower Mainland.  It kinda reminds me of a wet market in Hong Kong where you’re sure that’s rodents and other things scurrying right under your feet.  The lower level tenants probably has it the worst.  They had to put up tarp […]

Nordstrom’s ebar (Espresso Bar)

Whenever Boyfriend and I go to Lynnwood, if we happen to go to Alderwood Mall where there’s a Nordstrom, I have to get something from their ebar. It’s much like Starbucks/Blenz/Second Cup.  The prices are similar, even the layout is similar.  My favorite drink here is their Italian Soda which comes with cream and whipped […]

Yogurt Escape @ Coronado Island, San Diego

We took a bus from the ferry station to the hotel earlier (they’re at different ends of the island) and while on the bus, M saw a frozen yogurt shop that her manager has mentioned to her. M made a note for us to visit it on our way back. So after visiting the Hotel […]

Spiro’s Gyros @ Coronado Island, San Diego

Just returned from my trip to San Diego with a bunch of girlfriends, which explains the delay in posting (Boyfriend’s laziness while I was away accounted for that too).  But now I’m back and am armed with a bunch of pictures to show the world!!! Our trip to San Diego was quite jam-packed and hectic.  […]

Empanada Hut @ Lansdowne Mall

Update Apr 10, 2011: This restaurant is now closed. The first time I had authentic Chilean empanadas was earlier this year when I went on a trip to South America.  They sold these things on street-side markets and stalls. My first one however was bought from a convenience store there, instead of off the street.  […]

Burger King: Get ANGRY for $1.40!!

Back again to the Burger King!  After our positive reviews the last couple of times have encouraged us to return once more!  This time the new promotion is the ANGRY SPICY CHICKEN!  There’s an Angry Whopper too!  But tonight, Wendy and I were not too hungry so we just shared one Angry Chicken Sandwich.  Needless […]

Cafe D’Lite Express

Last week, the weather in Vancouver became unbearingly hot (to me and Wendy!).  Most homes in Vancouver are not equipped with air conditioners so that makes things worse than other locations elsewhere that receive more annual sunshine.  Fans and A/Cs were being swept off shelves during these times.  I couldn’t even go buy a fan […]

Dessert Dynasty

Lately I’ve been going to Metrotown Centre to wait for Boyfriend to get off work.  As he gets off half an hour after me, we have been carpooling and it’s been great. What else is great is that most of those days I’ve been having Bubble Tea.  Oh, wait…did I say that’s a good thing?? […]

Wendy’s Spicy Chicken Sandwich

GRock’s birthday was yesterday and to celebrate we all went out for lunch at work.  He didn’t have a particular place in mind but he chose Wendy’s in the end ‘cuz he felt like having a Frosty. In the end I chose the Spicy Chicken Sandwich Combo ($7.02 with tax) even though I was weary […]
