We had the first Family Day in BC. For that day, Whistler Blackcomb announced that the ticket price was 50% off! Collin and I, my co-worker, former co-worker, and her family decided to go riding together. We had breakfast on Whistler mountain and lunch on Blackcomb mountain.

There were a lot of people on the mountain, but we managed to find seats at Glacier Creek Lodge around 1:00 pm. Glacier Creek is at the bottom of Jersey Cream and Glacier chair lifts.

Collin ordered from Fries section, and I wasn’t hungry so I just grabbed snack.

I was looking at a coupon magazine, KLIP, last month, and I knew that the cafe offered Doria, Japanese rice gratin, by the end of the month, so I had to go! 🙂 It is rare to have Doria here in Canada, and it needs time and a lot of steps to cook so that I don’t make at home. Cafe de l’Orangerie serves Japanese style of Italian or French food. They are located on Granville street close to Richmond.

We ordered from the month’s special and dinner menu.

My choice, Doria (Japanese rice gratin) from the month’s special.

Collin said that he was full to eat dessert and would order some cake to go. Guess what? When this parfait came, he was the one who grabbed the cup and was eating. :O Yes, of course, I was trying eating half! 😀

And, when we had strawberry short cake next day, I forgot to take a picture.

At Narita airport terminal 2, I went to a cafe with my parents and friend, while I was waiting for my flight. The cafe was called UCC Cafe Plaza.

I wanted to have something that you can’t easily have in Canada. So, I ordered Cream Anmitsu, a Japanese style of parfait.
