■○ crispy chicken burger ●□
perfect lunch to grab when you're in downtown! Super affordable and delicious. Recommend finding somewhere to sit before indulging because it can get quite messy. Also got their beef teriyaki burger which was super juicy 😁
Made beef ribs in the oven tonight and I loved every single fatty bite. 🤤 (@thehungryhalalfoodie needs to get on my level for the love of fatty bits!) Sautéed my sea asparagus and peppers in @kerrygoldirl butter 🐮, and mashed in parmesan cheese in the potatoes (Although I wish they were creamier). 🧀 Threw on some salsa verde too. 👍🏽 #phancancook
📝: What’s the highlight of your week?
The highlight of my week would be my encounter with this 98 year old patient. A person with late stage Alzheimer’s disease would have definitive memory loss as the disease would progress. I then asked him what day it was, and he obviously had no clue. As per what a nurse should do, I reoriented my patient to person, time, and place. I reminded him that today was such and it was his birthday.
It was disheartening to see my patient alone on his special day. You’re left vulnerable, alone and ill. No one came to visit nor left any message. So I decided to grab my other coworker and we sang him a birthday song. (that’s all we could do because we couldn’t light a candle because of Code Red protocol). He then held my hand and said, “You’ve made me feel special on this day.” And let me tell ya, my heart melted at that point. I honestly felt the chills (definitely not the bad ones). ❤️
It’s finally the weekend and officially the first day of fall. Bundle up, get your warm drink and enjoy this cold breeze! ☕️
Today is the first day of my favourite season and I can’t contain my excitement. Fall is my favourite time of the year not only because I am an October child (any other libras celebrating their birthdays next month?) but also because fashion weeks are in full swing, I can finally layer all of my hoodies, sweatshirts, jackets and coats, rock all of my toques and hats (super stoked to sport all of my Markus Amadeo headwear this season), putting my creativity to use and making my own Halloween costume for once, attend my first onesie pub crawl + @vancitybusinessbabes networking event, carve pumpkins with my pops while sipping on glühwein and catching up on scary movies aaand riding my bike around Vancouver while breathing that chilly crisp air and watching the leaves change from green to all shades of red, orange, yellow and brown. ✨✨✨
This autumn will be extra special because I decided to put myself out there even more and jampack my schedule with new activities such as @aosvancity (thank you @erigoo for telling me about this), @mokshayogavancouver (thank you my mentor and friend @erinwilkins76 for a gift certificate), even more concerts (@riseagainst, @afireinside, @amysharkmusic, @lilyallen, @chvrches, @arcticmonkeys), @theboardoftrade’s Company of Your Professionals and Small Business Council, @vanstartupweek (so happy @lammies_aj brought me on board and @smartbitesnacks got to sponsor #VanHacks this year), Smartbite Snacks’ e-book and website and brand new projects for @sojuevents… And also the biggest challenge of 2018 – speaking at SheTalks in November in front of 150+ people. So fall bring it on I think I’m ready! 💪🙌💯
