Up and Blogging...?

So.... I've been very very very bad at updating this blog.... I've been considering actually starting to blog more often, but the idea of having to bring my camera everywhere I go and having to upload the pictures and stuff is kinda of daunting....XP I'm just lazy....haha that's all for now, new posts will be up in the very near future so prepare yourselves =D haha

Long overdue! (once again....)

It's been a while, once again... Just a few things that I've come across since the last post: 

Three of my classmates moved in together recently, and they threw a housewarming party. They prepared all this food for us, it was AMAZING!

They knew I love eating fruits, so they bought a whole lot of fruits and made a cute fruit center-piece.

This is a JjajangBop (rice w/ black bean sauce) This was delish! It was made with brown rice instead of white rice, I love love love brown rice so it was a bonus for me =)

It had a fried egg, cucumber slices and edamame on top, inside the sauce was carrots, mushrooms, onions and a whole bunch of other veggies! Sans meat because they spent most of the money on the fruit for me XP haha... it was super delish still! 

One of my favourites, DdeokBokki (spicy rice cakes)!!!! This was BEYOND amazing!! It had just the right amount of spice! =) my favs.♥♥
This here is kind of like a Haemool Pajeon (seafood pancake) but it was made with rice flour instead of regular flour, I think they called it Jijjimi...? Super super amazing, the sauce was just right and they cooked the seafood just enough so it wasn't too tough! How they do it, I have no idea XP

 This was just a little pickled side-dish they made to go with the rice... it was too salty for my taste but still really good!

 The view of Robson St. from their apartment =D

My classmates are Korean if you haven't already noticed and they're freakin' amazing at making foods from their country! I had an amazing time and of course, an amazing meal! I was stuffed at the end of they day!

More random stuff:

View of the Burrard Inlet from one of my other classmate's apartment. She has one of the most amazing views!

A sunny November day; I was in my mothers car, crossing the Cambie St. Bridge, saw the amazing blue sky with all the boats sailing the blue water and knew I had to snap a quick photo. I swear I take pictures everytime it's sunny and if/when I'm crossing a freakin' bridge... (refer to the next photo)

See what I meant? Haha... This picture was actually taken on the same day as the one above. I saw an airplane getting ready for landing, it was actually a lot bigger and closer in real life, this was while my mother and I were crossing the Arthur Lang Bridge, on our way to Richmond.

Well folks, I think that's all for now, I just might start posting more often with recipes and stuff... but not too sure yet. We will have to see.. Thanks for reading!

PS: all these pictures were taken with my phone, so the quality isn't the most amazing....

Random food encounters

So... Haven't really been updating due to the fact that i'm super lazy and rather just do nothing.....i'm babbling XP anyways, here are some things I came across and took pics of

Not sure how the picture format is going to come out cause i'm on my phone but the bowl of soup is the chicien verde from burgoo and the sandwich is the chicken...something haha..... The thing in the glass is the berry trifle from sweet revenge on main st. And the salad with the egg was just some random lunch/breakfast thing I made for myself..=) that's all...

hello again!

Ok so it's been a while since I started this blog... and I've posted nothing at all.... haha not too sure what to post quite yet but when I have more recent pictures and stuff I'll make sure I don't get lazy... in the meantime, here's some of the things I've come across since I've started the blog:
yummy tacos! =)

 <----- tacos from off the taco wagon during the winter farmers market @ nat bailey stadium the left one is a sweet potato black bean taco and the right one is the pulled pork both of them were really good esp. when it was a little chilly out =)
butter beef ♥♥♥

<---Phnom Pehn's butter beef ♥♥♥ I am absolutely in LOVE with this stuff! the sour dressing/sauce + loads and loads of cilantro + crispy garlic flakes + the almost rare beef = to DIE for!!!!! cannot get enough of it!

ahhh Phnom Pehn's infamous chicken wings....these are pretty good i'm a huge chicken wing fan so I've tried lots but this one kind of reminded me of salty/peppery squid you'd find at 'da lang' at chinese restaurants...maybe it was too hyped and I expected too much?

Chili that I made a month or two ago... I put mirepoix veg. (onion, carrot, celery) some pork, chili spice, tomatoes, kidney beans and just simmered it on the stove for about and hour just so the flavours come out topped it off with extra sour cream I had left over from nachos, a few slices of avocado and some diced tomatoes.
