I went to Habit Coffee and Fisherman’s Wharf in Victoria, B.C. in October.
I wasn’t a big coffee drinker before, but now I love it. My boyfriend gifted me an AeroPress a long time ago, and now I can’t go back to drinking instant coffee. Still, I don’t think I have the patience to grind coffee beans by hand. I’m not at that level just yet.
Dahlias are one of my favourite flowers. I saw these at Richmond Country Farms in October.
I watched a video a long time ago about dahlia-growing contests in Japan. I think that it’s cool to have one thing that you’re super committed to. I don’t think I have that – I constantly switch back and forth between hobbies.
Have you noticed that I’ve been writing a little bit more in my posts? I got inspired by Minty’s long posts and writing style. I don’t think I can ever write one as long as hers, but this is a step.
Ever since I saw this ad, I wanted to see the Drop in Downtown, Vancouver. Can you believe that I never saw it until now? I feel that I was always two minutes away from it when I was in the area but had no idea it was there hahaha.
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?
The view from the ferry.
The view from the top.
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!
