For the new year my family and I went to visit the temple in Richmond. We went a little before closing time so there were hardly any people there which was great for taking photos.
Looking back at these photos made me really confused because I kept thinking they fell into the December category but I guess not (since I looked back at the December post to check). January has been pretty calm (except for the regular panic session I have with my course schedule every semester) and I’m really looking forward to February which is really the calm before the storm aka midterms.
Finally got around to building the R2-D2 lego my family got me for my birthday a few months back. I haven’t finished it yet but managed to build the body, it was really fun and was so relaxing to just lose myself in the process of it.
I also got around to doing my make up purge. Most of these are empty bottles, over due stuff or really old products, hair bands that lost their elasticity…..
Early Grey Tea Latte -Waves Peach Tea Latte – Starbucks for Chinese New Year
Hot Chocolate – Glenrbern Hot Chocolate – Cafe Divano
I also realized that I had a lot of “drinks” this month as in the not alcoholic types but mainly hot chocolate! I guess I never realized how much I liked it until now.
Such a fat pigeon! I also learned one of my friends has a fear of birds, especially when they’re flying…
I finally got to try some Thomas Haas macarons thanks to a good friend! They weren’t bad, quite fluffy. I also tried their hot chocolate for the hot chocolate festival, I had the passionfruit one. I didn’t really like it but my friend loved it.
Went to Campagnola Roma with my family. They had Dineout but we chose to order from the regular menu since their Dineout one didn’t appeal to us.
The food overall was decent, the clam appetizer was amazing. The service was good but a bit slow since there was really only one waitress and the place got busy fast.
We tried all their desserts. Tiramisu was delicious, their soft serve was kiwi and I really like that too. It wasn’t too sweet. My dad really liked the panna cotta serve sideways in a jar.
My friend fell in love with the Earl Grey tea I brought back from Angelina’s in Paris, which is good for me since I had no idea what to do with all of them! I’m gave her the entire box.
Finally to end the month off a friend and I went to the Vancouver Urban Winery. Despite the fact that I can’t hold my liquor well at all lol Still we enjoyed our time there, the place was really nice although a bit hard to find.
