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 […]

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 […]

Café Mondo – Jasper, Alberta

We saw a great deal to stay in Jasper, so we didn’t pass it down. In the morning, we wanted a quick brunch which meant it wasn’t too busy. We walked right into Cafe Mondo and it is right on Patricia Street with street parking nearby. My husband loves soup and we went for a […]

Sunday, April 24th, 2016

I’ve always wanted to go to St. Petersburg in Russia, and when I was booking my holidays, I knew this was the trip I was going to make it happen! I needed to start crossing things off my “must see” list. I quickly looked a lot of cruise lines, and picked Royal Caribbean as I’ve […]

We took a trip to Hong Kong and we stayed in Wanchai as we had relatives in this area of Hong Kong. So, we booked a reasonable rate room at the Metropark Hotel. The location of the hotel was very convenient to all amenities, food, MTR and lots more! We stayed in their Spacious Comfort […]

I was doing some shopping one afternoon at Chinook Centre when I felt like stopping for a snack. I happened to be going towards Norstrom, so I went into their restaurant upstairs called Bazille It wasn’t a big place, but it wasn’t too busy when we went, so it worked out well for us. The […]

3Q Teahouse – Calgary, Alberta

Saturday, January 30th, 2016

We decided to grab a snack/light dinner one evening and saw a new place called 3Q Teahouse which was recommended by some friends. They told us the owner was actually Taiwanese, so the drinks should be good. There was parking available as the time frame when we went, all the other businesses were closed, or […]
