Ben and I went out for a meal on a Sunday with Arkensen as Nanzaro was out with his friends.
We went to Central at Garden City. Arkensen picked Thai Son for comfort food.
Thai Son was quite busy when we arrived.
Arkensen ordered the No. 1 house special (Pho Dac Biet). Both of us felt that it was bland. Continue reading
Lorna invited me to Success Women Richmond Mother’s Day Celebration 2017.
This year, the Success Women Richmond held the celebration at Sheraton Vancouver Airport Hotel instead of the usual venue in a Chinese restaurant.
It’s a buffet setting.

My family used to go for the fireworks competitions in Vancouver every summer at Kits Beach when our boys were still young. We have not been back for a few years since our boys have grown up. Nowadays, Nanzaro will go watch it with his friends and Arkensen is not interested anymore.
Ben was lucky to find a free parking on a side street at W 5th ave and Burrard St. We walked over the Burrard St. Bridge to go the English Bay. From the Burrard St. Bridge, we could see leisure boats sailing towards the barge for the fireworks.

We visited the first McDonald’s in Canada upon it’s reopening to the public after closed for renovation for several months.
This McDonald’s is celebrating it’s 50 years in this location.
The commemoration plague.

This was a belated Mother’s Day treat from Nanzaro.
We had lunch at Yu Xiang Yuan with Ben’s recommendation.
We were there early as usual as we do not like to wait for a table.
Nanzaro ordered the Deep Fried Chicken with Dried Pepper. Nanzaro ordered a serving of steamed rice to go with it. Continue reading
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.
Updated: 26 Jul 2017: This restaurant had been replaced by Miss Lina Crepe Cakes.
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
