FROM PARIS TO THE RIVIERA: FOOD EDITION

Monday, 24 November 2014 - 0 Comments

Paris Food I have received so much positive feedback from my trip report series "From Paris to the Riviera"... That series was by far the most popular/visited blog entry to date. First off I would like to thank everyone for the kind words and encouragements of this infant blog... Since the publication of this trip report series one of the most common follow up question was regarding my culinary experience throughout France (hence this blog entry… Sorry it took so long but in my defense we just had a baby)

French foods are world famous not only for its excellence but also in its diversity. Before we began on our journey through France my wife and I had vastly different intentions (my wife has a more conservative/picky palette whereas I am more adventurous)... All my wife wanted was France's legendary baked goods VS my constant pursuit of the weird-and-wonderfuls. 

So without further ados... I present "From Paris to the Riviera: Food Edition" filled with random thoughts and background stories. 

P.S. I am not affiliated, nor paid by any restaurants/products mentioned in this blog

BLACK AND WHITE HDR

Tuesday, 1 April 2014 - 0 Comments

A collection of black and white photos (some are HDR composites) from the past 6 months. Sometimes I find HDR (High Dynamic Range) photos look over-processed, but when done in black and white these photos become more natural-looking while retaining a large amount of detail.

CHRISTMAS LIGHTS AT VANDUSEN GARDEN

Monday, 10 March 2014 - 0 Comments

Christmas Lights @ VanDusen Garden VanDusen Botanical Garden is a very popular attraction amongst tourists, and in the 10 years I have called Vancouver my home I have never visited VanDusen... until now. (Well I am writing this post 3 months late as you can tell from the CHRISTMAS lights haha)

Starting around 2 weeks before Christmas and continuing for a couple weeks after Christmas, this annual tradition transforms VanDusen Botanical Garden into a dizzying explosion of lights.  In my humble opinion the Christmas lights @ VanDusen Garden is VASTLY superior when compared to the lights at Stanley Park & Capilano Suspension Bridge combined! (plus it is 3-4x less expensive VS Capilano).  We are definitely going to make VanDusen Christmas Lights an annual tradition for my household as well!


A word of advice... it gets extremely busy so parking might be a little bit of a problem.
