Place 72 – Day 125: Vancouver, BC – Richmond Night Market

Morning Appointment

Kim had an appointment to go to at 10:00 this morning, so we were up at 09:00 so she could get ready and go to that.

Coffee

When she got back, we relaxed for a bit and then went out for a coffee!

We tried a bakery called Purebread and were not impressed.

Pretty much everything was just ‘meh’. The coffee, the brownie Kim got and even the service!

Sneaky McDonald’s

We got home and watched some TV after the coffee, but were a little disappointed and also hungry, so we went up to McDonalds for a sneaky cheeseburger and milkshake.

Richmond Night Market

After a relaxing few hours, we jumped a train for 20 minutes to get into Richmond aand meet up with some friends from Curtis’ work. They had invited us to go with them to the Richmond Night Market, as they had fast pass tickets for it!

That’s right, fast pass tickets were needed.

The queue, if you don’t have a fast pass, takes about 1.5 hours or more to get in, which is crazy!

We were in within 5 minutes which was great.

Once we got in we were on the prowl for food.

We ended up sharing some mediocre Korean chicken.

We walked around looking at food some more but couldn’t really decided until we got to the corn on the cob which Kim & Afsara were right on board with!

After the corn on the cob, it was dessert time, and we found waffles on a stick which we got, and those were ok.

We finished the desserts and then went for a wander around the place, looking at all of the ‘things’ stalls, rather than the food. This area was a little less crowded too, which helped.

We grabbed a free yoghurt each as it was near the exit and then left around 21:40, after getting there at 19:00 so it was a good couple of hours!

We got on a train and Afsara & Will got off at the one before us and then soon enough, we were home.

We had a really fun time with them, chatting, eating and just having general fun…We’re looking forward to going out with them again!


This Time Last Year!

Place 49 – Day 351: Auckland – Picnic & Auckland Night Market

We woke up and had a small breakfast before Kim spoke with her family for a couple of hours.

When we were going to get showered, we noticed the water wasn’t very hot at all. We left it for 30 minutes and then it seemed back to normal, which was a relief!

We then went out to see our friends Vicki & Mike, and their children! We went to a park and had a nice little picnic and a catch up. The weather was much better today and the sun even warmed us up at times!

We then left the park and made our way back home to relax for a bit, before goung to Glenfield Mall for the night market, which happens at different locations around Auckland on different days of the week.

There is mostly food there, but a few other shops too.

We wanted some Asian food so, after having a walk around and even trying some Hungarian thin bread, which was tasty, we got a bao and some breaded chicken which we ate whilst walking around.

Before we left, we got some sweet chilli chicken with noodles as our main and a cheesecake dessert for Kim.

We got home and are our dinner whilst watching The Last Leg and then at 22:00, we spoke with Curtis’ family for a catch-up, which was lovely.

This time last year!

 

Poroporoaki!
