Place 72 – Day 345: Vancouver, BC – Japanese Cheesecake

Curtis’ Day

Curtis had a busy morning, with a lot of tickets coming in and he took them and got those done, as well as having a Zoom call with someone to resolve something from last week.

Curtis then had a meeting with his team which lasted and hour and then he had some lunch.

After lunch, he had another team meeting, this time it was about a team document that they have to get done and provide to some other people.

Curtis did some more tickets and answered some questions from people for the rest of the afternoon.

Curtis did some cleaning in the evening, after he played some games and waited for Kim to get home.

Kim’s Day

Kim began her day by starting on a new mini game for Kahoot! It similar to ‘who are you’, but with only two choices and it is called ‘this or that’.

She had a quick catch up with her colleague when she came in and then moved on to emails and organising things for the coming week.

Later in the morning Kim had a meeting with her colleague where they went over a few projects that are going on and made a few plans.

Kim spent most of the afternoon working on the main event for the virtual summer parties that will be happening in a few weeks. It takes a fair amount of research and attention. So mid way through the afternoon she popped out to get Japanese cheesecake with a couple of friends. When she got back Kim continued to work on the games.

Kim finished the day by having a long catch up with a friend, it went well into the evening again and it was lovely.

Evening

We had an easy dinner, just some chicken and we went old school with smiley face potatoes! Then we watched a bit of TV for the evening.

Place 72 – Day 202: Vancouver, BC – Christmas Parade & Festival of Lights

Christmas Parade

We were up at a good time this morning and then we had a quick breakfast before walking down to meet Linda at her hotel.

We didn’t have a huge amount planned for the day as we did a lot of walking yesterday so didn’t want to do too much today.

Kim had heard about a Christmas parade in the city, so we headed towards that.We had a bit of time, so we went and sat down for a coffee!

We finished our coffee and headed up to watch the parade.The parade wasn’t too great, so we left a little early. It was mostly just advertisements for companies, rather than any interesting Christmas floats.

New Yellow Coat!

We went to Sportchek after this as Kim had seen a nice bright yellow coat she liked. She decided to actually buy it today and she loves it!

Christmas Movie

We had some time before our next thing to do, so we brought Linda back to our place and sat watching Let It Snow which is our first Christmas film of the year!

Festival of Lights

We drove up to the Vandusen Botanical Garden to attend the festival of lights. We drive past here often but were not sure what to expect.

The lights were amazing! All the trees were dressed up with lights and there was a light show that went on every 20 minutes. It was actually great!

Dinner time!

Once we finished here, we went off to dinner. We went to Milestones which is a chain here in Canada.

We had some really great food!

Kim had sweet chilli chicken with rice which was very spicy but very delicious. Curtis had ginger glazed salmon with fried rice which was really tasty and also spicy! Linda had chicken pesto penne.

We were full, but we still had dessert!Curtis had a white chocolate cheesecake and Kim had a coconut/chocolate cake.

We waddled back to the car and then we drove Linda back to the hotel.

Linda goes home tomorrow, but it was great to see her and we will see her again soon!

Arrested!

We went up to the shop to get a few things and when leaving, we saw someone being arrested. He was making a lot of noise!

We got back home and did a few admin tasks we needed to get done before going back to work tomorrow.

It’s been a really fun weekend!
