After dinner, we walked over to the Central at Garden City to do some exploration on what’s new there.
Then we returned to Alexandra Road to look for a dessert place. We ended up at Scorpio’s M Dessert which opens from 3PM to midnight.
The interior looks nice with the high back chairs.
Ben just wanted a drink from the thirstiness he experienced from Midam Cafe. He had a Mango Soda which he said helps to quench his thirst. Continue reading

After our walk at Queen Elizabeth Park, we went for breakfast.
We came upon King’s Chinese Cuisine as we turned out to Main Street. So, we had dim sum here.
The place was quite busy. We waited quite a while before our orders arrived. The above was Steamed Custard & Egg Yolk Buns. I like the sweet and savory taste of the filings. Regular dim sum (big, medium and small) is $3.38.
Just be careful biting into them as the filings can be very hot. Continue reading
Ben had a workshop to attend in the evening in downtown. Coincidentally, it was on the day of the Tour de Gastown. I went downtown with him via the Canada Line to catch a glimpse of the bicycle race. I enjoyed watching the Tour de France in July as I love to see the scenery and the historical buildings along the way.
It’s my first time to watch our own Vancouver bicycle race.
The thing about the Tour de Gastown is the riders just go round and round gas town.
The best seat at a restaurant over looking the route of the Tour de Gastown.
It’s very difficult to get a good shot as the riders were riding past so fast. Continue reading
