This is horrid! I was reading my old blog entries and its super embarrassing. I want to apologize for all the past entries with grammar mistakes.  Let me redeem myself with this entry…

I went to Krause Berry Farm twice this week. I would love to go every week if I could. This place is awesome. My friends and I shared the Baked Corn Pizza and the Fresh Cut Farm Fries. The pizza was really good and I was disappointed with the fries, nothing special about them. Don't forget to try their waffles! They're amazing but expensive. 

My friend ordered the Strawberry milkshake.
That beauty...

Woot! I’ve finished all my finals. On Tuesday my friend met me downtown early in the morning. We went to Soirette Macarons & Tea on West Pender Street.  It’s about a five-minute bus ride or fifteen minute walk from Pacific Centre.

The scrumptious macarons
The Fairmont hotel. aka "Tipton Hotel" from The Suite Life of Zack and Cody
and more macarons!

Lavender - one of my favorite macarons, however my sisters would describe it as "soap-tasting" :(. Very mild tasting with a hint of lavender. 
Malibu - I'm not a big fan of coconut, but if you like coconut, then you will enjoy this macaron. I found it overly sweet.
Savory White Truffle – Truffle as in the expensive fungus. Very interesting, I’ve never thought of truffle in macarons, but it does work.  On top we have truffle infused salt, once it hits your tongue you will be blown away. The flavor of the salt really intensify truffle flavor from the macaron, leaving your mouth with the truffle aftertaste. If you have never tasted truffle oil or know what taste like, I recommend you eat a truffle dish before trying this macaron.

Caramel Fleur De Sel – Sweet, gooey, and the caramel inside was really good.
Early Grey Cassis – Not my favorite, I was expecting more from it. The chocolate ganache filling was too over powering and you could hardly taste the earl grey.
Amandine – Another favorite, I love the mild/neutral tasting macacrons. This is basically a vanilla macaron with an extra kick of almond extract. It takes about five seconds for the almond to kick in.

Aloha! The last two weeks of my summer was spent with my lovely family in the warm island of Oahu, Hawaii. We stayed in the city of Honolulu, one of our favorite vacation hot spots.  Our daily schedule consisted of swimming at the beach, eating, shopping and sight seeing.

We rented a car and drove around the island. We drove to our favorite beach, Kailua, which was less crowed than the Waikiki beaches. It had nice sand, lots of palm trees, turquoise blue water, and a slight, but refreshing breeze. We stopped at our favorite places like Nico’s pier 38, Wolfgang Puck,  and Leonard's (malasadas). We enjoyed our Hawaiian “Poke,” pronounced pokey, and it is basically diced up sashimi that is coated with sauce. We could not resist the Spicy Ahi (tuna) with masago eggs. We also fell in love with the pineapple shave ice and garlic shrimp. It was AMAZING! My dad and I enjoyed our usual spam Musubi for breakfast, a piece of slice spam, cooked in teriyaki sauce on rice wrapped with seaweed. We actually ate a lot more than this, but I’ll make a separate post about that.  It will be my part two of my Hawaii mini series.

I hope everyone enjoyed their summer and good luck to everyone starting school in the fall!

Marukame Udon. My first meal.

I don't like coconut water, but this wasn't' that bad :P
Driving around North Shore

Turtle! There were about ten at the one beach.
Double take, we just had to get it one last time. The one on the left is Pineapple w/ ice-cream and the one on the right is Pineapple Coconut :) Heaven.
We found our fav. Fumi's! Garlic shrimp and a puddle of garlic butter :) For some reason, Giovanni's shrimp wasn't as fresh :(
Wolfgang Puck Express. Our new fav. Garlic mash potatoes, yam fries, pizza, caesar salad etc. are amazing.
Sunset between the trees :)
