Chihuahua Sleeping with My Son

My Chihuahuas treat my son like a friend, and they enjoy napping and sleeping together.
I see many cute images like this everyday now.

Strawberry Picking in Langley

Langley, BC has lots of big strawberry farms, and they have a large amount of fresh strawberries, blueberries and raspberries, even corns.  The freshness, colours of the berries beats the market and the prices are reasonable.
We picked and bought lots of strawberries, and we will go again to pick blueberries.
The strawberries are so red and shiny!!

Harvey's in Canada

There are not too many Harvey's in BC, Canada, so we went to try it out in Coquitlam since they have collaboration with Home Depot. 

The burgers are freshly made and the patties are quite large to almost restaurant level.  However, the price is almost restaurant level with combo at 8 to 9 dollars.
I do like the burgers though.

Pizza Hut in Washington States

Apparently, they have a new menu for Pizza Hut.  They started to have maccaroni in Pizza Hut, and we tried it last week.  It was okay.  I will give it a 60 percent.  However, I think they should stick it to pizza.

Wild Rabbit in Bellingham

We saw this wild rabbit in Bellingham.
It seems like someone bit his or her ear.

Shopping Outing in Trader Joe's in Bellingham

Trader Joe's a popular organic store which provides affordable groceries cheaper than grocery stores in Canada.  Organic products are expensive in Canada.  For example, if organic soup sells for 20 dollars in Canada, it is a reasonable 10 dollars in US. 
The salami was delicious.
I have never seen the black truffle pizza.
The hawaiian bag is cute, too.  It is an excellent insulation bag.

Flashback: London: British Museum

British Museum, like the Louvre in France, has treasures from all over the world.
It is a good place to visit (could be crowded) and it is free!
We liked the Moai they have in their collection.

Flashback: Paris: Montmartre Hill and Moulin Rouge

People already dress well in the fashion capital of the world.
However, people, including tourists dress absolutely beautiful during the night to come to watch Moulin Rouge shows.
It was a 10 o'clock summer night and people were lining up for blocks for the entrance.  Lots of people were outside during the summer nights and it feels a lots different than Canada.

Montmartre Hill is a good place to enjoy the view of the whole Paris and see what local artists has to offer.

Lots of people in the night just gathered on the steps of the church and enjoyed the night view of Paris.

Chihuahua Sleeps with Pillow

I don't know if this happens to everyone who owns dogs.
My chihuahua sleeps on the pillow almost everyday, not sure why he needs it. haha
They are so cute!

Restaurant: Takano Ramen (Coquitlam, BC, Canada)

It is hard to find good ramen shop in Vancouver area, never mind okay ones.  Good ramen shops are only found in Downtown Vancouver or on Broadway, but not other cities around the Metro Vancouver area.  We actually found one good ramen shop with same kind of noodle and soup.  The cook was actually trained in a Japanese ramen shop before coming to Canada.  The shop is near by Coquitlam Centre, probably the best Japanese Ramen around Burnaby, Port Moody and Coquitlam.  Here are the pictures of Miso Ramen and Shio Ramen:

Vancouver Space Centre (Planetarium)

I am a little behind on my blogging in recent weeks.  (just too busy entertaining my son)  3 weeks ago, when the weather is still cool in May, we went to the Vancouver Space Centre for the first time. 

Now, I know why not many local or tourists go there because it is old, so small with little technology.  It is incomparable with the big cities in the world and not even the planetariums in Taiwan 30 years ago.  The interactive film in the dome is not even "film".  It is more like a slide show.  The exhibit room was so old and small, it only entertained us for less than 10 minutes.  However, we did take a few pictures.  Here is a picture of my wife in space suit.
