Every Easter, we love having a nicely family meal together in our neighbourhood.

We have covered about 10-12 restaurants in The Heights on our blog so far. Since it was Easter we had to try out something extra special...plus, we wanted to find somewhere that is … [Read more...]

The Costume Bank

The Costume Bank

I have always loved watching people dress up and get into a character. However, lately, I've been wanting to move from just watching and being a spectator to actually participating and getting more involved in the world of costuming. So, this year, I decided to wear my first ever CosPlay costume to the Fan Expo Vancouver. My friend Noel Blain was a model for The Costume Bank in Surrey so I … [Read more...]

Fan Expo Vancouver

Fan Expo Vancouver

Last year, I went to the Fan Expo Vancouver  just as an attendee to watch all the awesome Cosplay costumes! This year, our daughter Rianne and I dressed up as Fred Flinstone and Pebbles and enjoyed it much better as we felt like we were part of the Expo instead of mere spectators! We got our costumes from The Costume Bank in Surrey and eagerly drove down to the Vancouver Convention Centre (last … [Read more...]

The Mystic Masala

One of my passions is attending grand openings because I get to see the twinkle of joy in the eyes of an entrepreneur whose dream has just come true! Walking into the Mystic Masala was one of these heart-warming moments as I saw the dream become a reality for owner and operator Glynnis Osher, also known as The Spice Mistress! There were delicious cupcakes and pastries, free hand massages, swag … [Read more...]

Re-Up BBQ

As a meat lover, I am always on the lookout for the best BBQ places in the city! I have been hearing a lot about Re-Up BBQ at the New Westminister Quay so we decided to try it out this weekend since we were in the area! We opted for the Pulled Pork Platter with a side of mashed potatoes and corn (you get a meat option and two sides for $13.95). We also tried the made in-house Southern Iced Tea! … [Read more...]

My wife and I love FUSION everything! Fusion culture, fusion food, fusion restaurants,...we even made two cute fusion babies together: Rianne and Ryan (an amazing mix of Indian and Filipino)! When we were driving down Kingsway towards New Westminister and saw the sign "Indian Wok" we knew we had to stop there for dinner on our way home! A few hours later, we parked in the back of Indian Wok and … [Read more...]

Tea + Popsicles = TeaPops It's really a simple formula...and an incredibly delicious one too! This week, I was invited to the official Canadian Launch Party of TeaPops, a family-run company started in Victoria but now at supermarkets, health stores, and trade shows across North America. The origins story is an inspiring one: Victoria-based mom-preneur Dr Dionne Lasi-Baker was at home with her … [Read more...]
