Ben went to look out for another BBQ place. The Parker Place BBQ is always busy with a long line.
He decided to try out the roast pork from Kowloon Bay BBQ House which is located in the same strip mall as N-Joy Cafe.
Ben loves it. The roast pork here is made from just the pork belly. This is similar to the HK BBQ Master style. I like that the chef (the person who chop up the roast pork) made the effort to arrange the meat nicely. Although the roast pork is from the belly, it is not too fatty. Ben has a new favorite now.
If I remembered correctly. one pound of roast pork is CAD11.
You can eat in too.
The above are some of the options.
Kowloon Bay BBQ House accepts cash only.
I attended a dinner organized by several of the praise dance groups at the Mui Garden Restaurant on Minoru Boulevard, Richmond.
The dinner was scheduled at 7:15PM. I got a ride from Maria along with two other members. We arrived five minutes before 7:00PM and the parking lot (including the roof parking) was full. We had no choice but to park our car at Richmond Center and take a walk through the shopping mall.
Since we had 40 over people, we were seated at the private room at the back.
Condiments on table include ginger and green onion sauce and chili sauce for their signature Hainanese Chicken dish. There is also some peanuts for snacking.
Carol shared with us some pickled dried plum that she brought back from Taiwan.
One of the organizer, Perry (not sure of the spelling), brought dried chrysanthemum for everyone to have our own chrysanthemum flavoured water. She is health conscious and considerate as she does not want us to have trouble sleeping from drinking Chinese tea at night. Continue reading
The praise dance group at the Richmond United Church wound down for the year last week. I joined them for lunch for this occasion to celebrate the end of the session.
Our group occupied 3 tables as we had over 30 people. We were seated in the private room.
The good thing about this restaurant is that tea is free of charge as we had the VIP card.
Deep fried peanuts to nibble as we settled down at the table. We also got several saucers of the XO sauce.
Vicky ordered for our table as she is a regular to dim sum restaurants. We had two orders of the Steamed Truffle Shui Mai.
The above is one of the signature dish here, i.e. Truffle, Ginger and Kai Lan Egg White Fried Rice. Continue reading
The praise dance at Richmond Chinese Alliance Church had the last session of praise dance last Friday. It will resume in February 2018.
All the participants were presented with a token of appreciation. It is a Christmas card made of a photo of the group.
We usually have some snacks after the practice, sponsored by the church.
For this meeting, Jessica, one of the participant made some Steamed Rice Cake with Red Bean (“Poot Jei Gou”) for the group. It is very kind of her. If you are interested on how to make it, chowtimes has the recipe here.
After snack, we continued with a review practice which is held at the last session of the month. The group (some of us) then adjourned to their regular dim sum restaurant, Royal Seafood Restaurant for lunch.
Thomas was in charged of the ordering. The above is the Free Range Chicken in Mustard Sauce. Beware that sometimes the mustard sauce can gives you a sting up the nose if you hit a piece with a good dose of it. Continue reading
I attended the annual Christmas Party organized by Canada Praise Dance Association for the first time last Saturday.
The event was attended by 370 and represented by twenty over groups all over metro Vancouver.
The event was well organized by a lot of volunteers.
The event opens its door at 2:15pm while the actual program starts at 3:30pm.
Fruits and desserts were served while we wait for the program to start.
The desserts were mostly made by volunteers. The above jello was so pretty. Continue reading
Ben and I attended the Remembrance Day Service in Richmond.
The service took place at the Cenotaph right in front of the City Hall.
After the service, Ben and I walked over to Sanbo Restaurant for lunch. Since it was still early for lunch hour, we had no problem getting a table. This place is usually busy at peak lunch or dinner hour.
We had hot Hong Kong style coffee and milk tea which came with our meal.
Ben ordered the Beef Tripe Lo Mien but he got the Hainanese Chicken Lo Mien. We thought the server made a mistake and we just did not bother to ask and just accept the food as we were not fussy people. Continue reading
On a weekend, my family went to Lansdowne Mall food court for lunch.

Ben and I took a long walk from our home to Richmond Public Market on a chilling morning.
We had lunch at the food court. Ben decided to have claypot rice.

Some of the praise dance group participants attended the following luncheon, including me.
The speaker is highly recommended by those who had heard his talk before. The talk at this luncheon is about happiness in work place. How many of you all are happy with what you are doing at work?
The ticket for this luncheon is CAD15 and held at the Continental Seafood Restaurant on Cambie Road, Richmond.
The luncheon started with a dim sum item, i.e. siu mai. Continue reading
