Vietnam Sub & Grill – Calgary, Alberta

Saturday, March 11th, 2017

We found Vietnam Sub & Grill by luck when we were driving around Country Hills this one weekend, and saw it from the corner of our eye. It’s in a little corner location a bit tucked away, but it’s not a busy strip mall when we went – in fact, it was a Saturday afternoon […]

Pho Mai Thy – Calgary, Alberta

Friday, March 3rd, 2017

I’m not sure what happened here… but I know I went to Pho Mai Thy with my other half! We came here in search of something less popular in hopes of it being super delicious. We actually came here with low expectations, and it met and exceeded the bar I set for this restaurant! The […]

The Canadian Brewhouse – Calgary, Alberta

Friday, March 3rd, 2017

We were up north this one weekend for an event. After the event, we thought it would be fun to enjoy some sunshine on a patio somewhere. We ended up at The Canadian Brewhouse in Country Hills. It was a beautiful afternoon, and lots of people were soaking up the sun as we wanted to! […]

Annie’s Bakery and Cafe – Calgary, Alberta

Friday, February 24th, 2017

We quite enjoy wandering through Fish Creek Park in Calgary. There’s always things to see around! We’ve always walked by Annie’s Bakery and never got a chance to go in. This one time, we made an effort to come here during their opening season, and we’re glad we did! Although everyone seems to eat ice […]

Delta Hotels by Marriott Kananaskis Lodge

Friday, February 24th, 2017

I have now been the Kananaskis Lodge twice now and both experiences were quite different. We really enjoy going during our anniversary as it’s shoulder season, yet the road conditions are still good enough. This resort is always picture perfect, so we love taking photos of it to match some local postcards. The room was […]

Peking Ginger Restaurant – Canmore, Alberta

Wednesday, February 22nd, 2017

We were having family in Canmore for a family function, so we decided to scope out some Chinese restaurants to make sure they’re worthy of bringing family there. One of our stops was the Peking Ginger right on Bow Valley Trail. Parking wasn’t too bad as it there was a little parking lot in front […]

Fairmont San Francisco Bombay Suite – San Francisco, California

Saturday, October 1st, 2016

We had a layover in San Francisco, which was strategically planned such that we can work in an overnight at this beautiful hotel, and book an afternoon tea at their location. The location is quite convenient from BART, which brought us in from the airport. It is a short hike to the hotel, but it […]

Mandalay Bay – Las Vegas, Nevada

Friday, September 30th, 2016

I’ve always loved going to Las Vegas especially experiencing new hotels. This time, I found myself checked in at Mandalay Bay, and the hotel is beautiful. The resort is absolutely beautiful but I wished the staff was friendlier as i had an incident with them, and they didn’t seem to value my experience. The room […]

The Venetian – Las Vegas, Nevada

Tuesday, August 23rd, 2016

While we were visiting Las Vegas, staying at The Venetian, I’m not sure how we got so lucky… but we got upgraded to Prima Suite which was amazing! This room has the doors opening into a foyer area, which was marble and amazing. Truly a sense of wealth and luxury! Just off the foyer is […]

New York-New York Hotel and Casino – Las Vegas, Nevada

Tuesday, August 23rd, 2016

We had the opportunity to go to Vegas for a few days, and from there we did some hotel hopping to experience more! Our first stop was New York – New York located right on the strip, towards the end (closer to the airport). I must admit, the hotel is much nicer than expected! We […]
