The Fair at PNE (Pacific National Exhibition) is held from the end of August to Labour Day in Vancouver. It is a fun place for everyone to enjoy on exhibitions and food, in addition to rides or games.

After we got BBQ sandwiches, we got thirsty. We couldn’t see any bottle of water or tea, except lemonade. We kept walking and I saw some drinks at this food truck.

Roaming Dragon is a well-known street food truck since the launch. I have heard of this truck, but I just missed the chances all time. They serve Pan-Asian food, including drinks and dessert.

We ordered drinks.

Both drinks were so refreshing, especially in the hot day. There were lots of Lychee fruits in the juice, which I really liked.

In a couple of hours later, we came back to the truck to get some dinner to share.

Collin likes this. To me, it was just fine. Not so special to me. You can choose the filling from sweet chili calamari, lemongrass chicken, or Kaffir lime fried tofu.

If I have another chance, I would love to try different dishes.

Every year, the Fair at PNE (Pacific National Exhibition) is held from the end of August to Labour Day in Vancouver. I’m not interested in riding on a coaster or playing games, but I like watching some of the exhibitions and eating food there.

This is another year that Collin and I found time to go there and we had BBQ. Last two times, we had BBQ from Saskatchewan. This time, we decided to try something else, which was Gator BB from Ontario.

This sandwiches were huge! I mean, so much meat! We couldn’t finish them at once, and we did need some refreshment even while we were eating, such as pickles. As they said they didn’t have them, we walked around if any stores carry. Luckily, we found them in either burger or hotdog store, and they agreed to sell some on its own. We really appreciated.

Their meat tasted good. I would order it again, but maybe I want to try rib next time.

A night before Collin and I decided to go to the Christmas Market for the first time, I actually sent a message to my friend if she wanted to join us. Unfortunately, when she read it, it was too late to meet us on time. Anyways, it was a cold day, so I suggested to stay home and we will plan later.

For the following weekend, I was checking the weather in Whistler for skiing, and it said gusting 35-80 km/h. Besides, I was too lazy to exchange my ticket, so I decided to go skiing on Sunday. Well, since I decided my schedule, I sent a message to her and we planned to go to the Christmas Market on Saturday.

Because we met up at 11:30 am, there wasn’t a line-up at all. The weather was also not too bad, either. At least, the raining was stopped by then. (It would be cumbersome by umbrella if it was raining.)

The pictures today were taken on my third visit.

We got some food for lunch.

I chose this, which Collin chose at the first visit. My friend ordered Hazen on a bun.

While we were eating, I told her if she wanted to see the ornaments in the building we should go right away, as the line-up would be crazy. So, we did. In the building, there were lots of ornaments, nutcrackers, candle stands, incense, etc. The ornament she saw on TV seemed to be sold out, and she took a different color one. She wasn’t sure if she really wanted to buy, and when we went back to the rack, that color ones were all gone, too! Now, she was so happy to have held it. 😀 She said she should have come earlier, though. Oh well, if there is something that you would like to have, I recommend to visit earlier, since the market is open in November.

When we got out of the building and looked around booths for gifts, the line-up for the ornaments was growing. We were glad we went there first.

Looking around German gifts, she said it was a dessert time.

What she ordered was strawberries and vanilla cream puff in the stick. The pricing board says Fruit Sticks or Marshmallow Sticks, but there were sticks with fruit AND marshmallow, too. So, I’m not sure how much it was. Once this was given, the chocolate was quickly firmed. I tried some, and it was good.

Well, I want to go back one more time before Dec 24 and see how it looks like at night!
