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 luncheon started with a dim sum item, i.e. siu mai. Continue reading
Emily celebrated her birthday with me, Dora and Lorna at Tin Tin Seafood Harbour Restaurant.
We had booked a table for 5:30PM. When we were there, there was no customer yet. So, we told the server we will returned half an hour later. We went to Yaohan to do some shopping first.
When we returned, the restaurant had some customers already but not too busy yet.
Lorna had the honour to do the ordering. The above is Seafood Lettuce Wrap. The iceberg lettuce was very fresh and crisp. The seafood filings were made with shrimps, scallop and vegetables like carrots and water chestnut which give it some crunch. Continue reading
Ben had to send the car for service at the BCAA Service Center in Surrey. We were there earlier than expected and decided to have lunch first in White Rock.

The decorations is very Malaysian with “batik” cloth lining the tables.

On the way home from the Richmond World Festival, we noticed that Wo Fung had opened up a location on Park Road.
The new Wo Fung Noodle House is located at the strip mall behind IHOP on No. 3 Road. It is also in the same area where Kumare is.
Wo Fung was almost full house when we arrived. Luckily, we do not have to wait long for a table, just a few minutes. The condiments and water are set at a counter for self service.
We had to order their signature chicken wings for snack. They were served piping hot and they were crispy on the outside and the meat was tender. Continue reading

My family went to Kingsway for lunch. Nanzaro’s first choice of restaurant was unfortunately closed, so we ended up going to Happy Day Cafe.
It was just passed 11:30am and there was already a line up. We waited for half an hour before we got a table.
Ben and I shared a Shredded Pork Chow Mien. It was a big serving, good for both of us.
Nanzaro ordered the Minced Beef and Egg on Rice. It was a saucy rice dish.
Our orders came with a drink. Cold drink is a $1.00 extra.
Arkensen took the longest to decide what to order. He finally decided to have Baked signature Pork Chop on Rice.
Arkensen had iced coffee for his drink.
Happy Day Cafe accepts cash only. The meal came to CAD36 with tax and tips.

We were intrigued by the name of the dishes # 227 & 228. Maybe we will try one of them next time we visit this place again.
Kung Fu Noodle had moved from Venezia Place to Parker Place.
Kung Fu Noodle occupies the previous location of Ningbo Seafood Restaurant.
The decor were mostly from the previous restaurant.

Ben and I went out on a Friday evening for dinner since our boys were not at home.

Ben and I went out for breakfast on a Saturday morning.
We revisited AAA Restaurant for breakfast. It was very busy, just like Lido.
I only ordered the Pineapple Bun since I’m not hungry. It was as good as Lido’s and is served hot from the oven.
Both of us had hot milk tea.
Ben ordered the Satay Beef with instant noodle.
The instant noodle option had a 50cents upcharge. Ben’s order came with a free hot drink.
Ben actually wanted a combo meal which comes with egg but the menus on were all in Chinese. When we asked for an English menu, we were only given the standard menu without the combo version.
This is a Cash only place.
