I went to Bowen Island for a couple of days with two friends. It’s really close to Vancouver.
I felt stressed these past weeks and wanted a break from city life. Prior to the trip, I had not been on an overnight trip in several years and did not hike in a really long time. I am a homebody but it was relaxing and refreshing to be in nature. I felt peaceful.
I think that when you’re on the island, you are on an “island timezone.” What I mean by this is that there’s no rush and there’s not much need to check your phone. I wonder why I check my phone a lot more in the city- perhaps because a lot of people have the ‘need to be productive’ mindset?

I would say that the highlight of the trip was stargazing. There is only one street light on the island. I had never seen so many stars before. They looked so big and I could see them clearly.
The lighthouse and volcanic rocks.
I got my friends to watch The Untamed with me after our hikes. They became really invested in it, which was great. Hehehe.
These are unedited photos I took at Miniature World in Victoria. Miniature World is a museum where everything is tiny. There were so many displays and admission is $16 for adults. For point of reference… imagine the Colossal Titan from Attack on Titan.
The details are incredible. Every display contains so much – it’s hard to capture everything in just one photo.
Day versus night at the circus. Some displays turn dark and they have cool lights.
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. 😦
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.
Part 2 will be on Miniature World. I have a lot more photos for that which is why there are two parts.
This is Part 2 from my last post. I will write a Part 3 on my cosplay.
On Robson Street (near the Vancouver Art Gallery) there are these lights on the street. People gather there to take photos. I didn’t know it was there until I saw it (I live under a rock) but I thought I should take photos of my own. I hope you like the pictures of the lights!
The night market opens every year during the summer and opens from 7 PM – 12 AM. I went to the Richmond Night Market in BC, Canada.
It’s a bunch of tents on a large open space. The food stalls sell Asian foods and the tents sell cheap stuff from Asia. It’s really popular and the entrance fee for this one was around $3.75 which is expensive in my opinion. It’s still worth going.
Pocky was $1 each which is cheaper than the supermarket.
– I’ve been craving takoyaki ever since Hatchan made takoyaki for the Straw hats in One Piece
LOL I need to get a life!! Part of me loves me for being me, but the other part of me is like… why am I like this
I mean, anime hasn’t been interfering with my life. My family and friends irl treat me the same. If anything, anime has been treating me quite well LOL. I’ve met tons of online friends who love anime like me. People support my cosplaying hobby and the blog has really taken off thanks to my love for anime. I’m really happy with myself right now. I have no desire to change atm. ^^
I bought One Piece Zoro blocks/lego for $8. I’ve only seen Chopper in malls and the mall was selling for $15. Not only was this cheaper, there were more choices and I like Zoro more. ❤
