First of all, I got up early in the morning to get ready to go meet up with my friend Kristy to go to the Icebreaker sale happening at some hotel downtown. Apparently this two-day sale is something that has been happening for a few years now.(?) Continue reading →
Friday night I got asked to watch Doctor Strange with Adrian and his sister and friend. The theatre that we were going to was the one in Richmond. I have never been to the Silvercity in Richmond. Therefore, I was not PREPARED for the clusterfuck that is the underground parkade which is also the parkade for a T&T supermarket.
Needless to say, when I got there it was at 5pm. The movie doesn’t “start” until 5:15pm. The reason why I put the time in quotation marks is because (having worked at a Silvercity in Victoria for 9 years) that usually means at 5:15pm ads will be playing for a good 5 minutes and then the trailers will be another 10minutes. So I had a good 15 minutes before the actual movie starts. Continue reading →
SURPRISE! Another mini-blog post from another weekend in Victoria! (I swear if there was a points system from BC Ferries I would be WINNING).
My friend’s birthday party was happening Saturday of that weekend, and luckily enough my friends JON & ROY were performing at Sugar Friday night! I figured why not go and take photos of it! And make an even awesome weekend BETTER! Continue reading →
There’s just something about visiting places you used to go to all the time. Everyone has those places. It’s like a comfort blanket. You go to these familiar places because it makes you feel safe and it’s been there for you through many tough times. Or maybe that’s just me?
Queen Alexander Beach is one of those places for me.
I thought I would do something different and do a “cooking vlog”.
A while back ago I remembered watching one of Ben Brown’s old vlogs when he made chicken with a peanut sauce using just peanut butter — I was intrigued. So, I thought I would just wing it and try it out. Unfortunately, because it was such a long time ago since I’ve watched that vlog I can’t remember which video it was. But regardless, you should go check out his vlogs in general. Him and along a few others are film makers that really inspire me to improve, not just in vlog form but in photography and making videos.

Back to the “peanut butter sauce”.
Verdict: Turns out, it wasn’t that bad.
The sauce was a bit thicker and I definitely made more chicken than I thought because I didn’t even think the peanut butter sauce itself would be so filling as well 🙂
If I were ever to make this dish again, I definitely would make the sauce more less thick. Otherwise, everything else tasted pretty damn good!
Try it and let me know if you have any suggestions of what you would modify or try differently!
