The Ramen Butcher - the first step out of downtown


The Ramen Butcher

223 E Georgia St,  Vancouver

Food: 3.5
Service: 4
Price: Fair

While you read this post, I will once again be in Taiwan, hopefully this time when I get back I will have more time to share my trip report, and summarize all the best places to eat. Anyway, another ramen joint has popped up in Vancouver (when will you guys ever branch out of there, and consider Surrey, wishful thinking) to join the million other ones. The only difference is the location, this one is actually in Chinatown instead of downtown for once.

Nahm Thai Bistro on Urbanspoon

Food: 4
Service: 3.5
Price: Fair +

Soft Peaks Ice Cream

25 Alexander St , Vancouver

Soft Peaks Ice Cream on Urbanspoon

Food: 4.5
Price: Fair +

I actually heard and seen pictures of Soft Peaks before they even opened in Vancouver. At the time I was wishing we had one here base on my friend's review, plus it looked so darn good. I was planning to go later during the month, but luckily I received an invitation email to try just shortly after their soft opening. So I 'conqueror' all odds (found someone to watch the baby, I deserve a day to myself) and marched myself down there for a tasting.

Motherhood - Top 10 Things


I have officially gotten a new title/new job that I can't quit for probably the next 18 years. This job is certainly not a piece of cake, but it has its rewarding moments. I find the toughest (thus far) was the first 3 month (the probation period), because that's when my 'boss' was the most demanding, plus all the overtime I had to pull. I guess all this was to make sure I am fit for the job.
