March in Photos

I made a goal of writing a blog post a week but life got to me. I started a new role in my company and it’s been kind of hectic.

Frankly, March has been a rough month for me. In addition to losing a close co-worker, I’ve been suffering from a sudden onset of migraines and it’s been affecting all aspects of my life. If you’re a migraine sufferer, I’d love to hear some tips or advice!

I try to focus on the positives although it’s natural for humans to ruminate on the negatives. So here is what I got up to in March, despite suffering migraines:

What I Ate: Brunch

If you follow me on Instagram, it’s no secret that I love brunch. Here are some brunch places I went to in March:

From left going clockwise:

  1. Lift Breakfast Bakery – I’ve passed by this place many times and finally had to chance to try it! We waited for 45 minutes but I thought the food was worth the wait!
  2. West Village Cafe – I had work in Surrey and took the opportunity to try this cute cafe. I love everything about it–from the decor to the food. I highly recommend West Village Cafe if you are in Surrey.
  3. Loco Ono x The Pawn Shop brunch – Loco Ono and the Pawn Shop team up every month to do a Hawaiin themed pop-up brunch. I tried it last month and really enjoyed the food.
  4. Chef’s Playground Eatery– I’ve been following them on Instagram for a while and finally had the chance to try their brunch. The food was good and at a good price!

Life Lately: April

Happy hump day! I can’t believe it’s already May; April was a month filled with gluttony, cherry blossoms, learning and rain. As April came to an end, so did my practicum at UBC Communications and Marketing. I’ve learned so much during my practicum and I’ll definitely miss the people the most.

Here’s a glimpse of my April in photos:

One thing I’m going to miss about my practicum is being on UBC’s beautiful campus. I took this photo on the last week of my practicum.

Although I live in Vancouver, I’ve been spending more time in Richmond and discovering what Richmond has to offer. With the sunnier weather, I’ve also been trying to bike more often.

During my bike ride along Steveston Village, I had to stop for some frozen yogurt from Timothy’s Frozen Yogurt. I got my frozen yogurt with peaches and mango in it and it was delicious as always.
