When we left JFK for YVR last December 19, there was a raging snowstorm outside that caused horrendous flight delays. We were supposed to fly out at 9:45 PM but we ended up leaving at about 1:20 AM! Ugh!
I thought we would be escaping a harsh and bitter winter holiday by leaving the East Coast. True, we found ourselves welcomed into DIL and MILs warm embrace, but also a harsher, more bitter Siberian winter in Vancouver! Wah!
Outfit wise, I came prepared for a wind chill of -15°C and 12 inches of snow (this was early in the day, and snow was just starting to fall!)
Hat: H&M, Puffer jacket: James Perse, Scarf: Missoni, Jeans: J Brand, Bag: Balenciaga, Boots: Lanvin (Heehee! Yes! I finally got the black ones I've always wanted!!! Thanks KU-S for your email and MMA for being my partner in crime, although we got busted! Dear Hubby noticed it was a different, brand new pair! Good thing he just laughed at our lame attempt of a covert shopping operation!)
The following day (Heehee, yes same outfit, different tights, undershirts and unmentionables! Hey, I travel light!) I got a hair cut from "The Butcher" (a stocky, manly Taiwanese hair stylist with chubby hands who can do wonders with a razor and scissors hence he was baptized "The Butcher" by MIL and SsIL). With the sun out and shining, and with more than a feet of snow to play with, I couldn't resist packing a mean snowball!
Just when I thought I got a good one, I saw a HUGE chunk...
...that I couldn't resist flinging...
...at hapless, unsuspecting Dear Hubby...
Who only wanted to take a nice picture of me playing in the snow! Sorry Hon! It was just begging to be thrown at you! At least you got a good shot out of it! Hahaha!
Best of all, at the end of a cold cold day out, we got to enjoy dinner at my favorite Korean resto of all time! Jang Mo Jib! Where we feasted on Gahl Bee, Jab Che, Haemool Pah Jun, Gam Ja Tahng and bottomless kimchi! Woohoo!
Little One in my belly seemed to enjoy the meal as well. We did not barf or get nauseated inside the smoky restaurant at all. To us, this is a Happy Meal. Thank you Angkong and Amah for Little One's first taste of Jang Mo Jib!
