NPY’s PotD*: Day Fifty-Three

< Next | Previous PotD > His: He says, “Latte, chocolate strawberry cheesecake dessert at Cheesecake Etc.” That’s one of my favourite concoctions at Cheesecake Etc., the chocolate cheesecake with strawberry topping! NPY’s work area is a fabulous place for after work meals. Hers: Although I don’t drink beer–half a pint makes me feel sick and…

NPY’s PotD*: Day Fifty-Two

< Next PotD | Previous PotD > His: He says, “Eating at the bar at Suika with corny Japanese TV show on.  Similar to Ultraman or Power Rangers.” Hers: For some inane, inexplicable reason, I have chosen First Markham Place (FMP) as “the plaza where we will try everything”. It’s not the plaza next door (Times…

NPY’s PotD*: Day Fifty-One

< Next PotD | Previous PotD > His: He says, “Yummy omega 3 transformers gummies.  The family finished the entire bottle in a few days.” Boys and their Transformers! Hers: I collect pins so this is my latest addition… not! Hmmm, why would I order a Star Trek comm badge in October…? This is the Science…

NPY’s PotD*: Day Fifty

< Next PotD | Previous PotD > His: Wow, Day Fifty. That’s ten times longer than wyn’s longest trips to Toronto. How are we holding up?? Hers: After Eight-flavoured Nestle hot chocolate after 8 p.m. when we just vegetate on the couch with our laptops and watch the endless fall line-up of prime-time programming. We are…

NPY’s PotD*: Day Forty-Nine

< Next PotD | Previous PotD > His: He says, “Finally got my drivers licence renewed today and got Swiss chalet as an extra for dinner.” Good thing about renewing his license–it has been expired for a couple weeks!

NPY’s PotD*: Day Forty-Seven

< Next PotD | Previous PotD > His: He says, “My usual lemon poppyseed and latte.” NPY visits an independent cafe near his work that he’s brought me to twice. Each time I go, I feel like I’m trespassing or something because they know him in his work context which I barely know and I feel…

NPY’s PotD*: Day Forty-Six

< Next PotD | Previous PotD > His: He says, “Scorecard for today.  Not bad for not playing a full course in over a year without any practice.” I agree! Hers: After about 40 hours in Michigan, we headed back home. The border crossings were the least fun from being stuck in the under-water tunnel between…

NPY’s PotD*: Day Forty-Five

< Next PotD | Previous PotD > His: NPY went to Peaceful, the original location that was recently featured on Guy Fieri’s Diners Vancouver. I’ve tried everything Mr. Fieri tried but my favorites have been refined to two others: the Shandong noodles which is a great “stew” over handmade noodles, and their fresh, Northern Chinese-style potato…

NPY’s PotD*: Day Forty-Four

< Next PotD | Previous PotD > His: NPY is a fan of American Idol and roped into watching countless seasons until I picked up my habit of nearly always putting a laptop between me and the television screen. When he replays an especially moving performance, I’ll pay attention though. One such performance was a couple…
