Jennifer & Tony



This past weekend, my cousin Jennifer got married!!! After the dragon dance, wedding speeches and twelve course meal (cray cray!), the photobooth started rolling out. It was sucha big hit among the guests and it was so awesome how they gave out a hard copy to each person that was in the photo!



I obviously had to get a photo with my lova first! When I got home and took a closer look at it, I literally died at the bottom left corner!! Savage.



We kicked Daniel outta there after, so that the four of us could get a photo together. It would've been complete if my cousin Jenny joined us too! In case you're wondering, I was telling the groom to join us in the last photo ...but it was too late. :(



I'm so happy that my sister dragged my dad into the photobooth to take a photo with my mom - too cute! I was trying to accessorize my mom in the top right photo, but some thought I was tryna photobomb, which is why we ended up with a bunch of people in the photo! LOL



Throughout the night, I had relatives being like, "Cindy, you're next to get married." Pffft. Ya. Ok. If anything, I think my cousin Simon and his girlfriend Jennifer will get married before I do!



This has got to be my favourite group photo of the night!! So chaotic, but so good. (PS. Sorry for blocking your face in the last photo mom. It's a struggle when you're a shortie and you get the back! Hahaha)

Night Market



So this past weekend, Daniel and I checked out Night It Up! It's basically a little night market that happens every summer, where there's a variety of asian food, games and attractions. It was our second time attending together and this year was by far better than last year. It was probably because I wasn't hangry... :)




We also had no idea that we showed up an hour before the event started, until we found out from one of Daniel's friends we bumped into. It was actually a good thing that we did because they were already serving food and the lines were much shorter.



At first, we didn't want to commit to any stands until we got a general idea of what kind of food vendors they had. After scoping out the place, the first thing we tried was the stinky tofu! And ya... it was reaaal stinky to me. Daniel has had it plenty of times before, so I was trusting him that it tasted better than it smelled!



So let's see.. how would I describe my first bite... well.. my piece didn't have that much sauce on it, so it did tasted like how it smelled. Also, I was kinda surprised by how crumbly the texture was on the inside.



I felt like that wasn't a good bite to make a judgement call, so I took another piece with more toppings and sauce. For the second time around, I could see why there was such an appeal. :)



By the wayyy, don't wear white if ya know you're gonna be pigging out!!!



While we ate our tofu, we started lining up for one of the other food vendors that Daniel's friend was running. Y'know... ya gotta strategize... to make sure you constantly had something to eat!! LOL



It was basically deep fried instant noodles. We tried the "Butter Bee" flavour and to be honest, I found it to be really bland. It was a cool concept though!



In between trying exotic food, we played games and took surveys for free goodies!



We basically went home with free earbuds, bluetooth speaker, Aveeno creams, temporary tattoo stickers and a string bag. The string bag came in handy to hold all of our prizes!




After we won our free earbuds, we lined up for takoyaki!




When we got our lil' paper boat, we realized how crowded it was and how long the lines were getting. No one was budding us in line though, so I was a happy camper. :)





After Daniel got his freaky lookin' squid-on-a-stick to eat, we went to line up at Frozen Stone. Actually.. there was no line up. I'm not sure if it was because they were serving it really fast or this is a hazardous food item. Regardless, we enjoyed it a lot!!



It was basically corn puffs that had been frozen over by liquid nitrogen and it was so cool to see how these reacted once we popped it in our mouths!




As I was munching away, Daniel went to play his favourite sport ...ultimate frisbee. Ever since I've started dating him, I can't escape this sport!!! It's everywhereee... literally.



Like when he's not practicing or playing tournament games, we run into it on our dates! LOL



After he got that out of his system, we went to line up for these taiwanese "wheel cakes" that are filled with red bean paste.The lady at the cashier told us it would only be a 15 minute wait. After 40 minutes has passed, we realized we were in too deep!!! When we finally got it in our hands, it was.. meh.



Overall, I had a really enjoyable time with one of my favourite people. :)

Post-Vacation Blues



Last year, Daniel and I checked out Front Street Foods and were overwhelmed with all the options they had! After a tough decision, we went with the lobster roll and snow crab fries from Fresh Off the Boat. When I found out that this food market was returning this summer, I knew I had to go and try the other contenders I had on my list last year!!!



I asked Jess, my Australian friend who recently moved here, to join me! Okay... so I thought I knew what I wanted to try before I got there... but I realized they had new vendors this time around! After a lot of debating, we decided to go for the sushi burrito from Fish'd and chowdah fries from Jake's Lobster.



To be honest, I didn't know what to expect with the sushi burrito. The idea sounded really cool at first. After biting into it, I realized that it was basically a giant hand roll. As for the chowdah fries, I would definitely order that again. :)



We obviously couldn't leave without trying the super hyped up dessert at Chimney Stax! To our surprise, the bread was actually a bit hard to bite into. It did taste good though, but I'm not sure if I would order it again. With the ice cream melting so quickly and the "stax" being so stiff, I don't think it was worth the price we got it for.



Daniel and I actually lined up for Arctic Bites a few weeks ago. We ended up leaving with nothing, since we were tight on time. So when I saw that Ice Cream Rolls were offering something similar, I had to get it!



The guys there obviously didn't care about food aesthetics as much as Arctic Bites do, but the blueberry and strawberry ice cream still tasted great!




After spending three hours eating together, we walked to Sugar Beach! It was both of our first time there and I don't know what's a better word to describe it other than ....cUUuUte!!!! LOL




We were both wishing we had our bathing suits that day, but the weather did not look promising before we left the house. My goal is to come back to tan next time!!!



Gosh, the sand there really made me miss my Mexico trip.



Speaking of that, I've been procrastinating hard on blogging about my vacation. I'm just not ready to look through all the photos and be reminded of all the good times I had. I guess you could say I have the post-vacation blues ...even though it was a short trip... but STILL!!! LOL



Don't worry guys, I promise it'll be up soon!
