so rita and i decided to go for a little afternoon snack at the famed (not really) ABC hong kong style cafe. we both ordered the HK style french toast with condensed milk which included an HK style tea. i need to remember that i'm not in vancouver but rather calgary so i shouldn't be so critical on the chinese food here. overall, it wasn't too bad.

but check out his cool threads in his pissed off photo. we got it at the japanese flea market at nikkei place for a buck. ONE BUCK! what a deal. we also got a couple more pieces of clothing and a pair of shoes for my little buddy as well as some tupperware! we got a killer deal because the lady selling it used to do parties but got out of the business. we got 6 modular mate pieces with cobalt blue lids for $32! it was so meant to be. thank you tupperware lady, you made my day!
we planted so garlic last fall and look how well it's doing! we aren't doing the community garden this year which is a bummer because the Parker's are getting a plot right beside our old one! but dave and linds are clearing out little dog's pen for a backyard garden so we'll be taking part in that. fun!
my cousin jacky was on a 22 day vacation and decided to cruise into vancouver for a few days. the last time he was in town was about 7-8 years ago when he was just a young punk...still is. he absolutely loved conrad but who doesn't? jacky also gotten into modeling since the last time i saw him...i know, big time. check him out, he's apparently with HK's largest talent agency.
oh, conrad, you are a heartbreaker!

here's melissa and i fawning over little max(ie).
oh, my. oh, my my my. it was simply delicious. vikram vij is indeed a genius because those who have babies who don't take the bottle can't wait 3 hours just to get a table at vij's so we brought vij's to burnaby. it was too easy. ready made dinners, all you need to do is dunk those little bags into boiling water for 20 minutes and voila! but apparently it was too easy because i forgot to make the rice (doh!), good thing i picked up some naan.
here's what was on the menu:
punjabi lamb curry
saag and paneer
garnet yams and green chili dumplings
tamarind and date chutney and naan
and don't forget dessert: vij's rice pudding. Y-U-M!
look's like he enjoyed it as much as i did. poor little monster only had rice cereal for dinner, but i don't think it bothered him much. maybe next year buddy!
happy birthday, my love xxxx
