Grandpa’s Birthday Dinner


For my Grandpa’s birthday, the whole family went to a restaurant to celebrate. We always rotate between the numerous Asian restaurants that are close by. As well, the same dishes are ordered. When you have over 30 people in your family, it gets very boring.

The restaurant we went to is called Congee Dynasty. It may have “congee” in its name but there’s more than just congee. It’s your typical Chinese restaurant but they also have Thai food.

Anyway, for my Grandpa’s birthday, we ordered from a big menu option. This menu has a variety of dishes in each option. Below are the dishes from the option selected. I don’t ย know the correct dish name but I’ll describe what is in each to the best of my abilities (Sometimes I just know the Chinese name or I don’t even know what it is but I just eat it).

Birthday cakes for my Grandpa. One I think was coffee flavoured and the other was a chestnut cake.

It's more metal to suck balls without using a plastic straw ๐ŸคŸ
โ €
I love bubble tea and the amount of it I've been drinking made me realize how much more plastic waste I've been contributing. So recently I've made the switch to using metal straws.
โ €
While I might have to carry my straws with me and clean them myself, to save the Earth and reduce the effects of climate change, I'm willing to do it.
โ €
Earth is not just for our generation but for our future kids' generation and their kids. It is our job to make sure the Earth is still alive and kicking for them ๐ŸŒŽ

PS: If you want the link to where I got my metal straws, DM me!

I'm back! Nice to meat you all again ๐Ÿ
โ €
I've been MIA because of my phone. My almost 5-year old Sony Xperia Z3 bootlooped twice and I had to factor reset it, wiping everything, and I didn't get to back up all the internal data. Then my phone also corrupted a microSD card with new food photos I had, so I lost those too.
โ €
So I've been looking for a new phone, and now after 11 years of being with Sony-branded phones, I'm now part of #TeamPixel โœŒ๏ธ

Minus the five years of data that I lost, my phone and I are tapiokay now! ๐Ÿ“ฑ

(Swipe โฉ) Second photo (L-R): Original Black Milk Tea, Taro Sherbet, and Honey Milk Tea.
โ €
Let's get 100% real here: Almost broke down because my phone died on Tuesday and currently can't afford a new phone. Luckily, factory resetting my phone fixed it! I also never backed up my phone for the 5 years I've owned it, so I lost all my contacts and other data not on my SD card. (So if you have my number, text me yours because I lost ALL. DA. NUMBERS.)
โ €
Thank you to @maestroannie for letting me use her phone for these photos! ๐Ÿ™

Summer means it's Ribfest time! It's a yearly tradition for me to hit up any Ribfest I can in Ontario. Today I went to the @oakvilleribfest. Besides ribs, always gotta get the blooming onion, deep fried cheesecake, and funnel cake!

I've been missing Iceland a lot lately and have been craving Einstรถk beer. Here's a #ThrowbackThursday post to when I ordered a non-alcoholic, alcoholic beer in Iceland. Read about this funny story on my travel account โœˆ @asyoutravelit.
