Back in January, I finally said good-bye 🙁 to my precious Samsung 5 phone. It had served me well since 2015. I did however, had the option of choosing between the iPhone SE in Rose Gold ♥ or Samsung S7, since my old phone contract had ended.
To be honest, the materialistic and girly side of me wanted to select the iPhone since…well, it was in a nice pink-color♡✧( ु•⌄• ).The sales associate, however, encouraged me to play with the iPhone first to see how I liked it, as I had previously owned Samsung products for the past 5 years.
Despite the pretty color of the iPhone, I stayed true to Samsung, as I’m use to the functions and I like how I don’t need to go through iTunes to add music. Plus, I do have a Samsung camera that primarily works and connects with my phone.
It’s March and I’m still writing about my Dine Out experience, that right there, tells you how slow I am at updating my posts 😌😌😌
Anyways, the next place I had tried out for my dine out 2017 experience was Forage. I’ve always wanted try this place, since it was hyped on Instagram and I was glad I was able to make a reservation into my schedule. Surprisingly, I had forgotten to take pictures of the place inside, so I don’t have that many pictures of the structure, layout and ambiance of the restaurant.
If you were to ask me the question, “are you a dog person or a cat person?” I would immediately answer with no hesitation at all, that I’m a cat person. I realize this is ironic, seeing how I have a dog, Tobi, but I’ve always liked cats more than dogs.
Recently, I went to Vancouver’s very first cat cafe, the Catfé. The cafe had initially opened in December 2015, at Tinseltown. While it wasn’t my first time going, I had more fun this time since there were more cats and they were actually awake and playful(ؑᵒᵕؑ̇ᵒ)◞✧
As a fair warning, this blog post will be picture-heavy.
The last past 17 days of Dine Out Vancouver have gone too soon…meaning that this year’s Dine Out event is sadly, over… ໒( •́ ∧ •̀ )७ Although, I must say, my wallet and bank account took a beating, with all the eating out, so I guess it’s a good thing, it’s done.
The next place I ventured out to try was Brix & Motar. For someone, who likes to call herself a “foodie“, I actually never heard of this place. We only discovered this place when we looked at the option for the $40 set menu.
(While it’s too late to participate in Dine Out for 2017, I still encourage you guys to look at the different restaurants and menus⇒Dine Out Restaurants)
Before 2 years ago, I would consider myself pretty sheltered regarding events around Vancouver. I would never venture out to events in our city, partly due to no interest of going out and the fact I was shy and I didn’t like going anywhere unless I had one person I knew personally, to go with me.
However, after being dragged out by my close friend to go hiking for the first time ever in 2015, I found myself enjoying the adventure and just going out in general. Nowadays, I love to find new events to try.
Recently, I received tickets for the pop up store for MujiVancouver. The MUJI Pop-up Store will be accessible during January 27th – February 28th at the Fairmont Pacific Rim. Read more
If you must know something about me, I love Japanese culture, particularly anything that I deemed is cute or in Japanese, かわいい, (literal translation: cute).
And another fact about me? I’m a huge sucker for cute packages ˭̡̞(◞⁎˃ᆺ˂)◞*✰. So, when I discovered Japan Crate’s Doki Doki Box online, I knew I wanted to try and get a subscription box.
Japan Crate is an online subscription service company based in San Francisco. They send their subscribers a box of either Japanese candies, snacks, makeup products or items for their audience to experience the cultural side of Japan.
My name is Courtney, and I’m a student from Simon Fraser University, studying Health Sciences and Gerontology.
This is my very first time taking a publishing course, and I’m very excited about it, as I believe it’s a course that takes on more of a “hands-on” approach, then just some of the typical academic studies, where you just read the textbook.
In recent months, I have found myself being interested in the world of publishing, and wished that I took it upon myself to actually take the initiative to do something that I have an interest in it.
So, I thought to myself, it’s 2017, it should be a year to d do what I want to do and things that are new to me.
