To celebrate Shu’s birthday early, we decided it to try something a little different. With a total of 14 people Cheryl found us a private kitchen (私房菜), White Orchid – SouthEast Asian Cuisine (蘭花軒) located on 360 Highway 7 east., unit 5, Richmond Hill. Causal lunch by day and fine dining/causal by night, this is really a unique place. Price wise is not that bad to start with, just take a look at the pictures of all the dishes we ordered below, each of us had to pay $40, not bad 🙂 Food was great, it’s a little different from a lot of other Chinese restaurants because of it’s kind and style. A must try if you are in Richmond Hill, one thing I should mention tho, the place is tiny, if you want a big dinner with friends, you better call to make a reservation hehe

Happy to spend a gathering day with my friends on Labor day weekend and of course we are soo glad that Cheryl would let us mess up her place 😛 And big thanks to Macy for spending the time preparing our sashimi for the night, it took a LONG time to prepare because I was there 😛 It wasn’t just a typical night with regular food, sashimi was awesome and our hotpot really top the night. To be honest, it was my first time having hotpot with cheese and I am sure I keep that in mind because it tasted soo good. And at the end, we had baked KITKAT, heard about it but never had, it was yummy yum yum good 🙂
Usually back in the days, we would have stayed and karaoke after, maybe I am getting old so were the others, we ended the day early but it was definitely a memorable night for us 🙂 Thanks Cheryl, Macy and Shu for making this happen, hope we’ll do it again soon 🙂

Is it a tradition or not? A BIG BBQ at Cheryl’s house, this year we had 30+ people attended, a little less than last year but still pretty big 🙂 I missed a few previous parties so I was really looking forward to see my friends that I haven’t seen for a long time. One special guest, Anita and her daughter came back from Hong Kong for a short visit.
I remember back in the days, we used to drink (alcohol) like crazy but we are not in our 20s now, so we didn’t drink much this time, hehe The weather was super nice, we actually had concerns that it might rain but it didn’t, tons of food, lots of catching up with each others and of course it was a total madness with the kids playing bubbles 😛 At the end of the night, our stomachs were filled, some even got take out because there was just soo much food left, I couldn’t even describe the level of fun we had, just take a look at the smile/laugh in my pictures. Huge thanks to Auntie for preparing everything and of course Cheryl for making this to happen 🙂 Hopefully we can have another party like this on the next weekend, hehe

It was an event that we had been waiting for, cosplay time of the year, Halloween Party 2012!!! It has been a long time since the last gathering event like this, everyone had to dress up for the occasion and had tons of fun. We decided to have the party this weekend instead of on the actual Halloween day which is the coming Wednesday so we could spend more time to have more fun :-p Seriously, I think some of us looked even better than their normal looks after they are dressed up in costumes, hehe and you can tell some costumes really fit their personality perfectly, just take a look at Grace, Emily, Karen, Marcus and some others including me, seems like the costumes really reflect our inner selves to the real world, hahaha. Anyways, we had a blast, food was amazing, games were fun to play and the fun time/minutes was high 😀 I am sure we will do it again next year since this was a success, thanks Cheryl for setting this event up, and of course a BIG THANKS to Corolla for spending the time to make me a Waldo costume, YAY!!!

We were so graceful that we had a super nice weather over the whole long weekend, perfect for the event that we had been waiting for, Canada Day long weekend BBQ tradition at Cheryl’s house. Tons of people, tons of food and of course, TONS of fun 😀 Something was totally different this year because in previous years, we had Cheryl, her mom and some other people preparing food but this time, only our master chef Macy prepared the amazing good food. Of course the outcome of the night was a success as expected, thanks Cheryl, Auntie, Uncle and Macy putting the party together for us 😀
