Christmas Bash

IMG_1795 IMG_1796 During the Day we returned to B-'s house to have dim sum and open presents and all that Christmas goodness. All B- wanted for Christmas was a squid hat, one which I got for myself as well.

Christmas party at the Ngo's Family Get together was entertaining. What a big family they have with all the kids running about playing games. But it's pretty interesting watching and listening to B- singing backstreet boys.

Christmas Eve Morning

IMG_1792
It's wonderful to wake up in the morning and then find out your sister had her baby the night before and didn't contact you. But I headed over to the hospital right away after finding out the news and was glad to see the baby is a gorgeous baby girl. In the evening was the family Christmas get together dinner. It was quaint and not as busy as it used to be the years before. Very different feel. What a great addition to the family.

Last Minute Shopping

IMG_1791
Last minute shopping is perhaps the worst thing you can ever do. This year it doesn't feel like Christmas was as festive as the years before. More people doing last minute shopping. No more chocolate cookie tins. Everything was taken up and then I come across a Belgium cookie packaging with Chocolate spelled wrong. I wonder if anyone got fired for it.

The Man At The Station

IMG_1790
If anyone ever travels to Burrard Skytrain station on a regular basis will know this man. This man that plays the guitar so well. When I am coming up the escalators and hear Cannon-D I feel like it's going to be a wonderful day. That is one song I've actually claimed as my power song. Strange "power song". It makes me feel like such a winner when I play this song... that I've won. But it is a song that has been played out for weddings and now when I do get married, I'm going to have problems looking for a entrance song... or maybe my hubby will take care of that one. Well this day I decided after thinking for a few days before that I would buy a CD, so that I can listen at work. And Here it is.. I even made him sign it for me. :)

Vancouver Christmas Market

IMG_1764 IMG_1763 IMG_1775 IMG_1767 IMG_1768 IMG_1770 IMG_1769 IMG_1772 IMG_1783 IMG_1784 IMG_1785 IMG_1782 IMG_1781 IMG_1778 IMG_1777 IMG_1776
Before the day really started, we obviously had work during the day and since today is Wednesday :) today is date night and we started our meal at a little sushi place on Seymour. I wondered if we dined there on days we didn't know eachother... how many times apart. Then it makes me think if we were to rewind our lives... how many paths we took would have cross paths. Later on that night we went to the Christmas Market. I've never been to one. I'm so happy that B- likes going to events and doing things like this. It makes our relationship a little more exciting and well eventful when there are places to go and things to see. I realized that being in a relationship that doesn't allow you to explore gets boring. You don't learn as much about one another and the both of you don't grow together with the kind of experience that nurtures a relationship. It is very important to move together in the right direction in a relationship. The Christmas Market was smaller than I imagined it to be but the lines for the best places were obviously long. I would have liked a waffle but the long lineup turned me off from it. The crafts were beautiful and felt uniquely different. The little lanterns that move with the candle heat were pretty neat. Me and B- walked away getting a little something from the market as mementos of Christmas ornaments. B- got a butterfly, and I got a glass ornament.

Musical Bingo

IMG_1748 IMG_1750
One of B-'s best friends Steven is back in town and he decided to call out most of the closest friends for a get together. It maybe one of the biggest friends get together at a restaurant I've ever participated in. Eating wings at a local pub.. and it was musical bingo night. I've heard about musical bingo, but it's a lot of work to play. With most of everyone using some kind of device to help them win. It's my first time playing and some of us at the table actually got very into it. With one of them winning. here's B- posing for the camera... ready to stamp out his cards. Good eats, good company, what more can I ask for.

Dinner at Banana Leaf

IMG_1692IMG_1693IMG_1697 IMG_1698 IMG_1699 IMG_1701 IMG_1694Good eats and treats ... I must say my B - knows how to pick them.

This sample platter for two was delish. It was my first time eating at Banana leaf.

The food was good but the service was good at the beginning and then it died off near the end. Leaving us waiting a while for desert and our bill.

Food: 4/5
Service: 3/5
