I woke up with a text from Sissy that consisted of purples, yellows,and blues. She and Brett are out of town for a couple of weddings. Can you guess what the picture was?
When I asked if she had caught the bouquet, her response was that “It hit me in the face!” That would happen to her. I doubt she was meaning to catch it so I guess it’s meant to be! Now we wait for a proposal. 😉
Now that we’re done with that story, Happy Father’s Day!! Dad got this day off work so we can celebrate and have family time. With Sissy gone and Brudda in Dallas I was all that was left along with Mum and June. Since Dad’s birthday was just a couple of weeks ago we always buy a big present for his birthday and nothing for Father’s day. This time was a new laptop which he loves and has used daily.
We had brunch at Dim Sum King.
The ten dishes we ordered. Mmmm … this is a pretty good dim sum place and clean. They are a tiny little restaurant, especially in the front where people walk in. When we have to wait for seats, I feel like we are packed sardines.
They have wonderful service – attentive and no mistakes.
On the left is the breakdown of all the foods we ordered. Each dish represents a cost and that’s how they track how much we pay at the end.
There’s a tea fee. (Say that ten times fast.) But everything is reasonably priced.
I would suggest you come here and try their dishes. I hope they relocate to a bigger place. They would make so much more money!
In the same shopping mall is a DVD/magazine place that my parents went into while June and I opted to go into Yannik Cafe Bakery.
Look at the array of desserts they sell. Yum! And they are so beautifully decorated.
We stood in line for our egg tarts and I could taste the buttery flavour of the flaky crust and smooth custard. Sadly it wasn’t as flaky as other egg tarts but it was still good.
We headed into the DVD/music store my parents were at and ended up picking up Raymond Lam’s Let’s Get Wet concert. I still listen to Chinese music even though I immigrated here when I was four and a half. Fluent Chinese speaker right here! He’s not the best singer but my favourite song from him is on it.
Parents then headed to the optomitrist so June and I went to various stores to goof off. Like this gem – a cute, little knitted hat.
They took longer than anticipated so we chilled at Tapioca House.
The regular sized is June’s and the large was for me so that I could share with the parentals. Tiny tapioca balls are better than the regular and the drink was perfect for such a hot day. Dad drank it all before Mum even got out of the eye exam room!
We went home to relax and unwind. Dinner was coming up. (Our family goes crazy eating when it’s a special day.)
Hours later we drove back out to Lei Lai Restaurant. So much driving.
Horrible picture but we added in the clay pot since it’s everyone’s favourite. We usually take it home and Mum puts in more eggplants to make it a bigger dish since there’s so much sauce.
Everyone came home doing their chores and such and now only Mum and I are awake. I love winding down after such a busy day. Night!
