Originally I wasn’t going to post the rest of the Vancouver pictures up. Just because I was taking so long on them and look, it’s been literally a year since the trip. Aside from that, there were also personal reasons that made me decide to stop all together. Buutttt, you know what? This blog is sorta like a diary to me and I’ll just post up some of the other pictures anyway.

Can you tell that we went to a million places each day LOL! Jam-packed schedule! We ended our day off at Jericho Beach. Jericho Beach is really close to the UBC (University of British Columbia) campus. There’s actually a hostel right beside the beach too so in case anyone’s on a budget or backpacking there’s a place to stay right near the beach! I went to JB before when I was young and I remember I loved it because I got to watch people catch crabs!
Beautiful, breath-taking views. I could just take a nap right there on the beach while watching the sunset haha. On one side there are people doing the regular beach things – tanning, lounging around, playing some sports, etc. To the other side lots of people (although we didn’t capture them haha XD) getting into boats, etc.
In the middle – where we were – there were benches to sit at and at the end there were people catching crabs. It was amusing watching them haha. When I was younger they had some metal cages with raw meant inside. If I remember correctly, they had nets this time. They threw it really far and after a while they’d pull it up. You can’t take ones that are smaller than a certain size so if they didn’t reach the requirement the guys would throw them back into the ocean.
I thought it was hilarious because there were these two Asian guys about our age there fishing. While we were watching the men catch crabs we suddenly hear the two guys behind us yelp in excitement. We turned around and hear them go like, “OMG SUCH A BIG CATCH!! IT’S HUGE!! BLAHBLAHBLAHBLAH.” I looked down at the ground to see the fish they caught and it wasn’t even bigger than my hand.. I swear it’s like two inches LOLOL!
We also saw a seal swimming around in the water while we were looking out at the ocean haha! So cute. We were surprised because we also saw this:
I never knew something like this existed!!! I asked on Twitter what it was that I saw and someone @replied me saying it’s called Stand up Paddle Surfing (SUP). So cool! LOL! There were a group of teenagers all paddling away into the sunset LOL. I was a little sad thinking about how if it was me I’d prob be so damn tired after just doing it for a bit let alone riding it out as far as they did. I’d like.. attach mine with a rope to someone else’s LOL!! But I can imagine the arm muscles you’d get from doing this often.

For some reason I have this nagging feeling that I’ve already done an entry on all this.. hmm LOL. I swear I edited the picture below where I’m holding my crepe before? Ah well. So we decided to just hang out at Aberdeen Mall that day. Aberdeen mall has lots of Asian stores too.. I think it’s an Asian mall… LOL.. I don’t remember anymore. We went upstairs to the food court area and stuffed ourselves with food again.
We saw a Beard Papa’s here. The people here had on those culinary chef outfits. We wished we bought it here instead
We didn’t take a picture of the place, sorry XD… too creeperish. The place is called Mazazu Crepes and they actually have Japanese people working there. They have stamp cards so if you buy a certain amount you get one free, if I’m not mistaken. I told my uncle to keep the card since I don’t even live in Vancouver but he said I should keep it for the next time I go. Talk about giving me an excuse to throw my money at crepes if I go Vancouver >: O
There was a really popular juice place there: 8 Juice. I’m not sure why it was so popular. There was a long though. Maybe Vancouverites are in a health kick and want fresh juice?? LOL
Wanted some more munchies so I bought some also friggen delicious takoyaki from Hanabi. Had like mayo, okonomiyaki sauce, and those fish flakes (bonito). Was like an orgasm in my mouth NOMNOMZZZ. Felicia got this corn dog thing.
Leen got some japchae from Jang Mo Jib.
