Travel Diary: Victoria Part 1

I went on a trip to Victoria with the crew. I took these photos with my camera (not phone camera) so these photos are not edited, except for the last one.

I wanted to post a photo of this beautiful piano but unfortunately the picture I took is blurry. ūüė¶

Chinatown in Victoria is tiny! A lot of shops aren’t run by Asian people either but the lanterns look nice. I regret not buying a No Face plush keychain (from Studio Ghibli’s Spirited Away). TT_TT There was a Totoro one too. I do think that Totoro is cuter but I like No Face more.

ONE PIECE!

Part 2 will be on Miniature World. I have a lot more photos for that which is why there are two parts.

Food Adventures 2 (Vancouver)

Food Adventures 1 here.

I wrote this post to talk about some food I’ve eaten in Vancouver, but I might as well show photos of some of the other foods I’ve eaten with my friends.

Sushi burrito:

This is a combination of sushi and a burrito. It is sushi in the size of a burrito. What I liked about it is that you can choose your own fillings. It was really good! I think that it is worth getting to try out for the first time, but I would not buy this too many times because it is a little pricey. It was about $10. Regular sushi is a lot cheaper and a burrito with rice, beans, and meat is more filling.

McDonald’s waffle fries (for a limited time in Canada):

If you live in Canada, I recommend that you get this soon because it is only here for a limited time. It’s about $3. I finished this pretty quickly and I think that regular fries are more filling.¬†I still recommend that you get this because it’s cool!

Food Adventures (long post)

One Piece is one of my favourite anime because of the friendship the Straw Hat pirate crew have. As I was thinking of this, I thought about my own crew. During the school year, I see my friends almost everyday, but here are some of the times we ate food together.

2014

I didn’t start eating out with my friends until near the end of Term 1 of first year University. We got¬†Qoola and Menchies around campus to celebrate hard work and the end of Econ 101.

2015

In Term 2 of first year, we tried out Bubble Waffle Cafe near campus.

We also got drinks every Friday for our Econ 102 discussion. One of the places we went to was¬†Tim Hortons. My friends got the drinks because I had class before discussion. We also did this in Term 1.¬†For¬†V’s 19th birthday, we went to Kyo Korean BBQ and Sushi House.

Summer 2015

During the summer after first year, we tried to meet up a lot. I couldn’t make it to a lot of the hang outs, but here are two I went to. We went to Cactus Club and Mimibuloveme.

September 2015

In Year 2, we hung out a lot more so I can post photos for every month. Before school started, there was an event held by one of the clubs. Since my friends were leaders for the clubs, I signed up for the event. Even though I didn’t get my friends as my leaders, I had fun. Three of us went to Blenz near¬†campus.

On the bus ride home from school on a different day, I had another bad experience with creepy men. I was still upset the next day but A bought me a drink from Tim Hortons on campus to cheer me up.

October 2015

For my 19th birthday, we went to Kyo. Cotton candy was being handed out on campus so we got some.

November 2015

We decided to try out fried chicken at Flipside at our school, UBC, for the first time. Later that day we got Starbucks on campus. A, G, and I decided to make Fridays our food days so we went to Danbo for ramen.

December 2015

We celebrated the holidays by eating out at Chef Hung Taiwanese Beef Noodle. V treated us to¬†cream puffs at Beard Papa’s later that day. We were on our winter break during this time.

January 2016

We went to Shishinori to celebrate A’s 20th birthday. Later that month we went to Banana Leaf to celebrate J’s 20th birthday.

February 2016

We went to Seoul Cafe¬†to celebrate G’s 20th birthday. We also had dim sum at Western Lake Chinese Seafood Restaurant on a weekend¬†morning.

March 2016

A, G, and I got free pocky on campus. The crew and I went to Red Robins.

April 2016

A, G, and I went shopping for J’s birthday gifts (different J) but we made a stop at Starbucks. The next day, we went to Morak Korean Restaurant to celebrate J’s 20th birthday.

On the last day of Year 2, we went to Pearl Fever Tea House near campus to celebrate. During our summer break, we went to Snowy Village for bingsu.

May 2016

We went to Chau Veggie Express to celebrate V’s 20th birthday. Later that day we went to Off the Grid Waffles.

June 2016

Summer school started for A, J, V, and C. I didn’t have summer school but I did have to go to campus for my lab. A, J, and I went to Pearl Fever.

When G got her N for driving, we went to Sekai Udon Bar to celebrate. On another day on campus, my friends and I got bubble tea at the new place. We got the drinks on the first day it was served. We also went to Panda night market and got different foods. We also had shaved ice from Icy Bar.

It’s almost the end of July and I haven’t seen my friends much this month. We were going to eat but I was too ill so it was cancelled. Two of my crew members are out of the country right now but we will see each other more when they come back.

Before I became friends with the crew, I had not gone to most of these restaurants before. It’s kind of like Luffy’s crew. If it weren’t for Luffy, the Straw Hats¬†probably wouldn’t have travelled to so many islands.
