April 2017: Something New…Something Revisited..and a Reboot in Life

Being Sentimental: I always thought we had the most beautiful cherry blossom tree at work; this is the last Hanami photo taken from my old office window….
This April has been a very busy month filled with long working hours, farewell gatherings and birthday celebrations..

I am simply overwhelmed with gratitude and joy..

A big thank you to my ex-colleagues and friends for all your well wishes and support…I am at loss for words..

This month’s posting is short and 

For now I will let my pictures do most of the  “talking”…

As I prepare to enter another phase in my life…look forward to sharing more with all of you…

and you can catch me on Ms. Deborah Moore’s show on April 26 AM 1470 1030am sharp (OO)
Something New : Pre-opening dinner at Botanist restaurant, Fairmont Pacific Hotel

I knew I was in for a special treat when my dear foodie friend Ms. Moto invited us to a sneak preview dinner and to celebrate my birthday,  at the Botanist, one of the most highly anticipated restaurant opening in 2017.  Thank you so much for the special invitation and birthday celebration! Here’s a snapshot of our dinner, detailed post coming later.

My first course: Asparagus Cauliflower Kohlrabi Chorizo charred Octopus
My hubby couldn’t stop raving about this dish: zucchini radish grilled apple escabeche honey glazed pork belly.
 

Masayoshi Revisited : One year Later…Memorable Omakase Birthday Dinner 

One year ago I celebrated my birthday at Masayoshi; I have chosen to return this year…To sum up the experience…

Dear Chef Masayoshi and crew at Masayoshi: the experience is more than words can described; I am so glad I have chosen to return to your restaurant to celebrate my birthday and the beginning of another chapter of my life. Thank you very much for another truly memorable experience; this made my day extra special!

 

It’s almost the end of April and we are trying a New hotpot place: Hot pot Palace in Richmond (168-7911 Alderbridge Way, Richmond, BC) 

Ending a busy work week with a nicely paced Friday night almost 3 hour hotspot experience..I really enjoyed the zousui in the end.

Two different types of soup: Pork Bone and Szechuan spicy pot, There was 4 of us and we ordered 4 different set menu to share: (Matsusaka Pork Cheek + Belly, House Special Seafood Platter, Wagyu Chuck and Angus Beef
Zousui: Rice Porridge cooked by our server, using the remaining soup, added egg and green onion : this was my favourite and soup was packed with lots of flavour 


System reboot, old hangs and new experience: Garden City Hotpot,and Juicery & Co…and WHITE CAPS!

Local Rose: Grapefruit, Rosemary, Apple and Burdock – great for digestion!
Do you know Garden City Hotpot (McKim Way, Richmond, BC) serve some very tasty Cantonese dim sum at lunch? They change their menu quite often and this “Fish noodle” was one fine noodle dish!
Exploring something new: First time to a soccer game in my life – Whistecaps and it was on the Loud and Crazy southside! Thank you VG for the wonderful birthday present
 

A special message to my ex-colleagues: Truly grateful for your friendship and memories; keep in touch on Facebook and my blog!
