The Vancouver Art Gallery’s current exhibit, Mashup: The Birth of Modern Culture. It boasts to be the gallery’s largest exhibit yet and covers all four floors, with each floor dedicated to a time period. I spent a good three hours touring the exhibit, taking my time to relish all the works I didn’t think I would be able to view right in my home city! The exhibit would also be fun for those who are not art enthusiasts because some of the installations were entertaining to see. Also it’s a good idea to pick up a map at the beginning of the gallery.
A cute macaron I bought from a supermarket. I had a cleaning appointment later on so I saved it to eat afterwards….
What it looked like when I actually ate it. Smushed in my bag.
Watched my first opera! Attending an opera has always been something I’ve wanted to do but there hasn’t been one that’s intrigued me till Madama Butterfly came into town! I loved it and am looking forward to attending more operas in the future.
It was a good length, about 2hrs and 40mins with one intermission. I know there are many operas that are far longer in length but I thought this one was perfect for a first timer. One thing I would suggest is to not sit too close to the stage, I sat in row 7 but I wish I sat in at least row 10 or 12 because it was hard to read the captions above the stage.
For my fathers birthday we took him to Top of Vancouver since it’s a place he’s been wanting to try for many years. The view is spectacular but the food is only subpar.
I guess this is a bit of a throwback post, all the way back to 2013. I had a chance to visit Atlantis Paradise Island Resort on my Disney Cruise and it was beautiful. We had a dolphin interaction excursion there but also got a chance to wander around the resort.
Looking back, I’m not sure how I was able to snap a photo without anyone in it but I’m glad I did. From memory there were many groups there taking turns with the dolphins.
The weather at home is a bit dreary at the moment and writing this post makes me miss the sunshine and warmth even more!
I haven’t blogged for nearly 2 months! I’ll be combining the photos for the past two months, which is good since I didn’t take too many. Remember when I said September was great, nice and relaxing? Well it was the complete opposite when November hit. Although I don’t mentally feel stressed my body is telling me I am. Anyways I’m really enjoying the Christmas decorations and festivities happening around the city.
Looking back October and November was pretty fun although a lot of work was also involved. I’m looking forward to Christmas and the closure of 2014.
