Happy Canada Day to all chowtimes reader. Due to work, it’s getting harder for me to blog. Thank you for all your support all this long thirteen plus years. I will try my best to keep this blog afloat.

My boss bought me and my colleague dinner after work on a week day. Thank you, boss.

We had dinner at Pinpin Restaurant on Fraser St. It serve Filipino Chinese cuisine. The place was busy at dinner time. Reservation is advised.

We had the Bihon Pancit. My boss asked for less salt and less oil as she is very health conscious. Despite less oil and salt, it was still pretty good.

My colleague ordered the Pusit Sisig; her favourite dish. She ordered this dish every time she visits Pinpin. Pusit Sisig is diced spicy squid served on a hot plate. It is slightly tangy and it goes well with steamed rice.

We also ordered a vegetable dish to have a complete meal. We had Sitaw at Kalabasa sa Gata which is string beans and squash in coconut milk. The squash was very creamy and melt in your melt. The curry sauce is also good with steamed rice.

After dinner, my boss also got us some cassava cake to take home, She loves cassava cake and she wants to some home for Ben. How thoughtful. I will make her some Malaysian style cassava cake to try one day.
