New Year's Sunrise 2013

This New Year's weather has been very nice to us.

My wife took couple of spectacular pictures of the morning sunrise.

Christmas House Light in Burnaby, BC, Canada

There is a famous house in Burnaby that has been in the newspaper and has visitors visiting.

Fortunately, I live very close by and could bring my family and visitors to take a look!

All you need to do is to drop by and take pictures and donate a couple of dollars for Children's hospital.

The person spent about a week of his own vacation time and hand crafted some of the light designs.

He put up about 20,000 lights in and around his yard.

When I counted, there were about 11 snowmans all around the house and yard.

Even the garage, roof and drive way are heavily decorated with thousands of lights.

They had Santa, Angel, Penguins, everything you can think of for the Christmas season.

I hope they do this every year because it is neat sight to see!
I am not sure how they can pay the hydro bills or sleep in these lights. haha

Christmas Gifts: Innotab and Mario Kart 7

I bought my two kids Christmas gifts that they have to learn how to share.

They are loving these gifts.  It is still a little early for my 2-year-old to play the kids tablet.

Inno Tab and Mario Kart 7

They are loving the tablet, Innotab 2, right now because they can buy different learning games such as Mickey Mouse or Cars or all kinds of other children animations.

My older kid loves to play Mario.  I try not to let him play during the weekdays though because I know it is not good for kids to play that much.

I hope this has been a good Christmas for my kids, and I think they had a lot of fun!

Tim Horton's Mug Cup

I bought my wife a Tim Horton's mug cup for Christmas because she likes to collect mug cup.

It actually comes with Tim Horton's Coffee!
Now, that is a bonus....haha.

Trader Joe's Peppermint Macarons

I found this new Macaron dessert from Trader Joe's during Christmas season.

Trader Joe's Peppermint Macarons
It does taste very good with fresh peppermint flavor!

However, I do like the original macaron better because they have more flavors within the boxes.

It is good for a Christmas snack with family!

Boxing Day Canada 2012: Coach Tablet Case

We got a great deal from the Bay during Boxing Day!

The Coach tablet case retailed for more than 88 dollars regularly.

However, we got it for less than half that price! (Tax included)

Coach Tablet Case
It is perfect for the new tablet for my wife!

Here is the inside look.  It has many compartments for pen and notebooks and lots of padding.
I was surprised that even the Coach brand was on sale.
