An "all star" weekend

This past weekend was a very memorable one for us.


I took the skytrain intop Vancouver. It brought back fond memories of the subway system in Seoul.

I went to Utopia Academy in Vancouver to get my hair cut. Dispite the "new tecniques" the student was trying to learn on me, it was a good haircut.

My American cousin, Jake, was in town so he met up with me at the salon and we went to Chinatown. We did lot's of touristy things, like taking pictures of the Chinese garden with our cell phone cameras and going to all the local gift shops.

Jake and I had some Nem-sam: a Chinese arrangement of small foods.

Jake and I went to Metrotown (via the skytrain)---we're sooooo metro. We did a little Christmas shopping/adding things to our own Christmas wishlists.

4:00pm-by this time it was starting to become a snowy winter wonderland.

Triple date with Jamie, Brian, Laura, Ryan, Lane at Pasta Polo (a very yummy organic pasta restuarant).

Off to Chapters to look at all the picture travel books and to make my own travel wishlist.

9:00-11:00 pm
Bowling to our hearts content. Jamie got a "turkey" (3 strikes in one turn).

Sunday-snow day!!

Christmas bake-off. I made shortbread cookies, banana chocolate chip loaf...and brainstorming more recipes to come!!

Not too snowy to make an appearance at Nathan and Lydia's pad for some "catching up" time.

Total snow accumulated: almost to my knees
Approx. temp: -10
