Finally, exams are
over and cheers to a new semester.
I was rummaging around my computer for photos from last year. I forgot to blog about my trip to the VanDusen Botanical Garden with my dad last summer. So, I'm posting them now (Part 1) :)
Let's take a tour, shall we? Above, we have the “Flower Bed,” which I thought was hilarious because it’s a bed and there’s a garden…get it :P Never mind, ignore my humor. Moving on to the photo below, we have an interesting flower that I've never seen before. Sorry, I forgot the name, but if you know it, can you please tell me in the comment section! Thanks.
Below: One of my favourite still life photos, the garden bench.

I blogged about my top photo picks of 2012 and featured another bench photo. There's something about benches in gardens that I love. I'm glad I captured the sunlight peaking through the trees :)

Cream + Light shimmer = My go-to nail polish look
I used my NYC nail polish in “Mulberry Street” for my base
color and finished it off with my MAC “Frost Beiged Bliss” shimmer polish.

What’s one thing you
have in common with your friends? – We love food!
After a long day of eating, shopping, and walking, we made our way to Guu for
our 6 o’clock reservation on Robson St with ten minutes to spare. We walked in,
and were surprised it was fairly small. Then we realized, it was the wrong
place. Guu has six other locations in Vancouver. We accidentally went to the
Thurlow location instead of the Robson one. Good thing we were ten minutes
early, because we fast walked about six blocks to the right restaurant. We were
greeted loudly by the workers in Japanese and were quickly settled in our seats.
The workers were fast to give us drinks, hot towels, and our food.
I thought the food
was very good authentic Japanese food, but it was on the pricey side and had very
small portions. It was also very tasty, but you left feeling hungry (well, unless
you spend over twenty bucks…)
It was one of those moments when you receive your food and feel like quoting from tv shows...
“Dad, Can I borrow
your glasses? I can’t see my entrée...”– Phineas (Phineas and Ferb)
Is this a good first
date place? No, unless you really want to burn a whole in wallet.
Overall, “Guu is guuu’d…”
