~ iphone photos – May 2014 ~

Honestly I have no idea what happened to April but here are my May iphone photos. May was a really fun month and the weather was great! Honestly it’s often hard for me to remember what I’ve done in the past month if I don’t look at these photos and relive the memory.
I finally finished a small candle so I cleaned it out and put all my buttons in it! If anyone’s curious it was Bath and Body Works – Black Pepper Bergamot.

Saw these adorable tea cup shot glasses

I started writing a journal again and since I was in between semesters I was able to write quite a bit.

Teddy bear latte art from Blenz, I got my usual hot chocolate – half milk and half white.

The new Oui Paris Cafe finally opened and I was able to try it with a friend.

I ordered a hot chocolate and some type of cake. I was disappointed with both. When I asked the cashier what this particular cake was like she looked annoyed to answer my question and answered “it’s just a little cake”. The little cake turned out to be tasteless and very dry. The hot chocolate came in a generous size but sadly it was tasteless. 
I’ll wait a few weeks before returning to see if they’ve ironed some stuff out. I’m hoping for a more positive experience in the food as I really enjoy the space.
My friend had a savory crepe here that she said wasn’t bad.

  
My friends pistachio macaron on the left and I was admiring the pretty pink salt!
Macarons from Faubourg. They were all yummy but I liked the passion fruit one the best.

 
My family and I had teppanyaki night and the fire was way too big and close to my liking!
These are so adorable!

Finally, I ended the month with Wicked! It was absolutely amazing and I would not hesitate to recommend anyone to see it!

~ Museum of Vancouver ~

For a little while now I promised my sister I would accompany her to some places on her to-go list, mostly we’re tourist locations. She let me pick which one I wanted to go to and since I hadn’t come to this particular museum ever I decided we should check it out. 
The Museum of Vancouver is actually attached the same building that the McMillan Space Center. When you enter the space center is to your left and the museum to your right. We actually went to both but I would not recommend the space center simply because you could see everything in about 15mins. 
The large crab like sculpture water fountain outside is almost an attraction in itself.
I actually did not a high expectation for the museum but I was blow away! I’ll let the photos speak for themselves.

Back in the days when White Spot had drive ins they would serve you your good on a long horizontal tray as pictured above, that’s so neat!

These eerie looking tools are actually what they used to curl ladies hair.

There was so much to see and do that I wouldn’t mind going back a second time soon. The place was beautifully displayed with lots of details and interesting facts from various periods of time. This is the permanent exhibit and across the hall is for temporary exhibits. When I went it was Rewilding Vancouver,  I thought it was really interesting. It’s exhibits are to invoke memories of Vancouver in the past, focusing on ecology.
