♥ Brunching. Last week included a lot of food truck work, as well as a couple of adventures with my friends. First up, we went to Catch 122 for brunch. It turns out I regularly walk by this restaurant, but I didn’t even know it existed. Inside, I was surprised by the high ceilings, exposed brick walls and food offerings. The brunch menu includes a good variety of meals that are all $13 each. I went for the pulled pork sandwich, which I enjoyed, but I kind of wished the pork was a little more saucy.
While in Gastown, we also stopped by Purebread, which was another place I always passed but never visited. I am thankful I didn’t know about this bakery, because it’s ridiculous. They have so many delicious dessert offerings, like loaves, cookies and brownies. Definitely worth a visit when in Vancouver.
♥ Night Market-ing. It had been awhile since my last visit to the Richmond Night Market, so I was excited to return with my LA partners-in-crime. It fortunately wasn’t too hectic, but still busy. Together we sampled Mogu’s fried chicken, barbecue squid, dumplings, the “rotato” potato (spiralised potato on a stick), and my favourite bubble waffle for dessert. I also took a few photos of the fun colourful installations to celebrate Canada’s 150th birthday. It’s such a good place to spend an evening!
♥ Reading. Guys, another week, and another book I am still reading. I did slack off a little last week when it came to reading before bed. It won’t happen again 😉
♥ Watching. I’ve just started a new TV show called Stitchers. I was talking to my mum the other day, and how sometimes I’m the mood for a heavy, need-to-focus TV show, like say Quantico or Travelers. But most of the time I just like to relax and watch something easy, which doesn’t involve using a lot of brain cells. This is Stitchers for me. The seasons are short, so knowing me I’ll be finished it in no time. After some Googling, I discovered the lead actress is actually Australian and from Brisbane. Aussies really are taking over Hollywood.
♥ I can see clearly now. A haze update: the smoke finally left the city on Saturday! It was the first time I’d seen clouds and blue sky for nearly two weeks. Although we can breathe easy now (literally), the people inland are still unfortunately suffering.
This week I have a lot of writing to do, a couple of concerts to work + a trip to start planning!
