(You can have a bucket list for a summer.....of course you can... don't let anyone tell you different!)
It took me all Summer to get to #3.......but on September 1, 2012 - I checked it off my bucket list!
On David's 13th Birthday evening the whole family caught the skytrain to the River Rock and got in the loooong line-up to get into the Night Market.
When I saw the line I felt good about that decision.
However the line went super fast and in a few minutes we were in. We followed the crowd to the "back" of the market to the food area and employed a divide and conquer approach.... someone get seats, someone get in the line for Rotator.....someone else get other food...someone else take photos....
It was about this time I realised that I had forgotten my camera and only had my iPhone...after feeling crushed for a moment I decided to embrace the restrictions of the iPhone camera and go for it.
It was also at this moment I totally regretted eating before we came. Stupid white rookie move. UGH!
It was so exciting wandering around all the stalls - the smells so enticing. Some vendors had amazing systems for moving customers through quickly - like the rotator folks - they have it down!! And the Dim Sum..... but the Roti guy was overwhelmed and I didn't wait.....the bubble waffles were slow too....but who walks away from a chocolate bubble waffle......????
Having eaten and snacked and unable to justify any further food purchases - not to mention the place was now packed.....in a cheery and friendly sort of way..... we took off to see what the rest fo the market held.
iPhone case stalls - tempting - hilarious....... but no thanks
I do think if Allan really loved me he would have got us these matching cases.
And all this led to an exchange with my friend Jennifer........
