A Wedding in Vancouver

Today was little friend's brother's wedding.

Food was really yummy.  Sharks fin was yummmmmy, and I was given 3 abalone to eat.  Wuhahahaha. Not to mention the lobster, and the noodles etc.  Gooood times!

I did have one task assigned to me at the beginning of the reception.  To set up the projector in the other room.  Had to use some creative engineering skills to make that work.  It ended up sort of ok :).  I also helped delegate instructions and work with the wedding coordinator.  My new found managing skills put to good use!

The entrance was pretty cool - there was an old school Chinese carriage thing that the groomsmen carried the bride in, while the groom just walked in.  Hahaha.  Poor groomsmen!

The booze ran out midway through dinner.. haha.. We are such a bunch of alcoholics!  But I was still able to salvage some wine for myself :).

Car got keyed :(

So I wake up this morning (ok 3pm) to go grab something to eat.  Reaching my car, I noticed that it had been keyed all the way around.

Update: 8 panels... $3700 in damages... At my own place :(

Nishino - Sake and Omakase

Went to Nishino tonight for some Omakase and Sake in honor of Aman's birthday.

It was yummy.  Sake in a bamboo tube... tons of delicious food.

(Apologies for the poor pics - bamboo tube sake I guess was better than I thought :P)

PaddleBoard yoga bust...

We had booked to do paddleboard yoga today... but turns out we missed the time by a few hours... Errr.. Oops.

So instead, we walked around Golden Gardens and had ice cream :).  Also chilled at a kiddy playground for probably a good 30 to 40 minutes.  What I did observe though is the playground they have now is a lot saver.  There was this ball of rope thing which I think is the 21st century version of the good old monkey bars.  Much harder to hurt yourself on those I think (I still remember how PhD cousin broke her arm falling off one of those).  The other contraption they had there - a thing where you jump and and start spinning yourself... that one was a tad dangerous to me (which I guess if I compare that to the tire swing... it's not THAT dangerous).

Ahhh.. Kids these days... given so much safe things to play with... .. .
