Unplug

It’s August long weekend – and we all know what that means… it’s time for a day at the beach! This year, instead of going to Gimli like we usually do, we went to Steep Rock. I haven’t been there before so it was quite the sight. It’s located about 220 kilometres north of the […]

Double Birthday!

Today my friends at work and myself went back to Across the Board for another night of fun games and good times with the whole gang and celebrate since two of us are celebrating our birthdays! On our way to the cafe, we stopped by Toad Hall Toys for a bit since some of us […]

Ai-Kon Winnipeg 2016

I take back what I said two years ago… because this year is the best Ai-Kon yet! Just as usual, I’m always going for the weekend pass (July 15-17th) and attend all three convention days in a row. But what makes this year exciting for me? It’s because I’m finally putting my childhood dream of cosplaying […]

The Adventure Club Goes To The Zoo

So here’s the situation – it’s your employer’s annual BBQ day at the park which happens to have a zoo, and you haven’t been hanging out with you coworker friends because of the workload, what do you do? Spend time with them, of course! After the main event which is the BBQ, we were all […]

Pokémon-Hunting Day

Since the Pokémon Go app went live here in my country last Monday, I finally joined the bandwagon. My friends who are more dedicated actually got the app even before it was officially released here because they badly wanted their Pokémon fix. Since starting last Monday I was able to catch 31 Pokémon out of […]

Memento

Today is unofficially declared as National Best Friends Day online and in social media. People of all walks of life use this opportunity to honour that one special person who stood by them and how much they appreciate their friendships. The craze somehow reached my own feed with my friends posting many different things about their own […]

Summer Opener: Yurt Camping!

Summer is here… and with that comes the first summer trip of this year – we went yurt camping! 😀 For the uninitiated, a yurt is a traditional dwelling of Central Asia nomads. Made to resist extreme climates, this circular shape abode has five basic elements: lattice walls, roof beams, a roof ring, a door, and […]

Board Games Night

Last week, some of my co-workers planned out an evening of board games and they were nice enough to ask me to join them! 😀 So earlier today right after work we went straight to Across the Board which is a game café at the Exchange District. I have to admit that I haven’t played […]

Fight Night

I’m not a very huge fan of Pacquiao but I didn’t miss his retirement fight last evening. But for me and my friends, it has been pretty much a tradition that we organize a small get-together each time he has a match and take advantage of the opportunity to catch up with each other. He […]

Ai-Kon Winnipeg 2014

I attended my third Ai-Kon Winnipeg event (since 2011) and I can pretty much say that this is now my favourite Ai-Kon year! Unlike the past two years, this is the very first time I have attended the convention in its entire three-day run! My initial plan was only to attend for two days (Saturday […]
