Fun day with Maiko

Maiko is a Japanese exchange student I met some months ago at a social event. She is returning home soon, so I had to see her again one last time.

We went to Suika in Vancouver, BC for lunch. I got miso ramen and it tasted great.

Even though I’ve only hung out with Maiko during that social event, she got me a gift. She is such a kind-hearted person, and so much fun to hang out with. I wish I got to see her more during the school year but life was so hectic. It’s a letter set from Japan with paper, envelopes, and stickers.

Details. This is really good quality.

I picked up a couple of cosplay things (brown short wig, and green sneakers – for Kido). We went shopping after our lunch and I also bought the video game, Star Ocean. Maiko bought way more things than me.

I’m really going to miss Maiko, but I’m glad I got to see her before she goes back to Japan.

First day of Reading Week

I have a week off from school but I still have to study a lot. Here are a couple of photos from today. These are photos taken with my new phone without editing.

I ate a lot of sushi today, but this was beautiful. :’)

The lights at night are so pretty! A lot of people take photos of them.

Yolks

I had brunch at a place called Yolks in Vancouver. We got there at 11 AM, but had to wait an hour and a half to get seated. My friends didn’t think that it would be this popular.

I got two eggs, bacon and hash browns for $13.50 before tax and tip. Another popular item is the chicken and waffles combo. My friends thought there was too much hype because they thought the food wasn’t the best. I thought the food was good, but I wouldn’t go again if I had to wait.

Photos from my bday celebration

Some of you have asked for a bday post, so here it is.

I ordered the Royal bento box.

I celebrated with friends, and I’m going to see some friends tomorrow too. If anyone is wondering, I got a gift card, a wallet, bath bombs, a Tony Tony Chopper plush, a sweater, another gift card, and a painting of Roronoa Zoro my friend painted for me.
