I am back! Vancouver 回鄉探親

Last weekend we were back to Vancouver for 1.5 days. Supposed we were going to back on Friday night, but I've got a rush job to finish (Client picked the final design on Friday afternoon and want it to be done before Monday.....nice)....so we went back in Sat morning instead.

On the way we stopped by McDonald because mr T wants to play the monopoly game! A guy who don't believe in marketing with super high resistance to any kind of advertisement actually takes the action (he had been craving this for a week!)! How successful this campaign is!?

Anyways, we had brunch in McDonald and arrived Vancouver around 1pm. We then met my friend Danny & Chris at Stanley Park for photo shoot. I've asked them to do me a favour shooting some photo for us (more like engagement photo.....yea, I know it's weird...but hey I need some photo for the wedding).

Smile, clicking clicking clicking; pretend to lookout, clicking clicking clicking; walk, clicking clicking clicking; it was soooo funny! With the continuous shooting mode and the shutter sound, I felt like I've been shot by machine guns so many times! Oh no! we are dead XD Thank you so much Danny & Chris for doing me a big favour! I can't wait to see the photo......hmm....not until next time I go back. They shoot 700+ photo that day, yea I am sure I will have fun time with photoshop later ;p

At night, we went to friend's house warming party. As usual, we wii & tw mj. I was the sole winner that day! 6 continuously winning when I was "john" with 3+ "ji moh" and some big wins! Wahahahaa! I was sooooo happy! (sorry helen ;p) I won my first "lek goo" too! YEAH~

正宗元朗老婆餅! 好味到暈...暈0左! 每次都總會見到一些美國或其他地方來的人幾打幾打地買(現在我明白了...嗚!) 我通常買一打回家,每件用保鮮紙包好放入冰格雪藏,要吃時焗爐焗15分鐘就可以吃了 :)

這是一家由學生實習經營的cafe,雖然沒上述那兩家的精緻但亦很不錯,價錢也便宜1/3左右。另一邊有一家同樣是學生實習經營的restaurant則可以不試,我吃過一次, 不會再去。

推介 :: Chocolate mousse cake

最好吃的法式crepe,不是Cafe crepe那種事先做好厚厚的"crepe"。這裡鹹的crepe都是用whole grain flour做的,所以我不太喜歡 ;p
