HANGING AT ENGLISH BAY

I haven’t written a mini-blog post in forever! I’m slowly getting back into it.

After a few days of pouring rain in Vancouver (or Raincouver for those of us who live here), the sun finally came out. Not to miss this somewhat otherwise “rare” opportunity before more rainclouds decide to pour in, I joined my friend for a walk along English Bay.

BABA ALI

It’s so nice to see my boys again! If you remember, or watched any of my New York City vlogs, I went over and stayed at my friend Rob’s apartment (along with his roommate, Baba) for a little over 2 weeks.

I TOTALLY CALLED IT

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

UNEXPECTED TEDXTALK (feat. ANITA LEE from HELMET)

As the title suggests…

I went to Anita from Helmet who has done hair/make-up for both my sisters wedding! They have continued to go to her for haircuts during that time, so I figured “i’m new in town! The hairdresser I usually go to is now in Victoria…. I should try out Anita!”

Best decision ever! Located right on Cambie Street (although I believe she told me they will be moving to a new location — will know more and will share with you in the future). Continue reading

VISITING FAMILIAR PLACES

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.

SHIPWRECKED!

For a more COMPLETE story of how this boat came to the shores of Cadboro Bay, you can read it up here.

Before I even went and saw the boat, I figured it was the same boat that was stranded at Gyro Park all those years ago. But it was indeed a different vessel.

The boat was completely stripped and weather-worn. Kids were playing around it and people were taking photographs that was situated right in front of the playground (which is ironically, also a boat).

EXPLORING KINSOL TRESTLE

Kinsol trestle is located in Shawnigan Lake where it’s a 1 km walk towards the site. The view and height is amazing! It’s an easy walk that’s even accessible via wheelchair. The river that flows underneath it is the Koksilah River.
