Light the Night 2014 in Vancouver

This year, me and my husband decided to support LLS with their annual Light the Night Walk.


Source: Light the Night

With chapters throughout Canada and the United States, LLS is the world’s largest voluntary health organization dedicated to funding blood cancer research, education and patient services. 

Our mission is to cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease and myeloma, and to improve the quality of life of patients and their families.

In 2012, Light The Night was able to raise $50 million for blood cancer research in North America.

Across Canada in 2013 The Light The Night walks raised over five million dollars. Vancouver hosted its 9th Walk in 2013 and raised over $603,000.

This is not just a walk, it’s a chance to come together and support one another, complete with music, food and family fun. Everyone and anyone can join us to help take steps to cure cancer. 

Help us make a difference.

As of today, we reached the $100- $499 goal. We hope we will get more support as the event gets closer.

Why We Walk
  • Over 100,000 people are living with, or are a survivor of, a blood cancer in Canada.
  • Every 28 minutes someone is diagnosed with blood cancer in Canada.
  • Every 77 minutes one Canadian will die from blood cancer.
    We walk for them, with them, and to benefit them.

First Glimpse of Calgary

I've been after my hubby to go with me to Calgary and see the Canadian Rockies that Banff is so famous for.

It was just hard to do a vacation that long with small kids and when my cousins and brother finally planned to come here all together. I decided to take that leap and go with them for a 3 days 2 night trip to Banff. (I agree, It is SHORT but I will take whatever I can just to get a bit of time to myself).

...and since we were restricted with time, we opted for going there by plane rather than driving all the way from Vancouver to Calgary and to Banff. It will just be too tiring and we wanted to maximize whatever time we can spare to enjoying the place.

I was really excited how we are going to be as a group as this was our first time to travel with each other... It was an hour and a half of flight and with an early flight, we had the whole day to enjoy Banff and explore the area...

* Our first view

* Almost there

* Goofing Around

* We almost lost one of us....Nah!

La Casa Gelato: 218 Gelatos to choose from...

If you are a bit undecided on what flavour you'd like when you go get a gelato, La Casa Gelato may make your head spin with all the flavours that is available inside their shop.

You can sample these flavours to your heart's content before picking up the one you'd love but it is a must to purchase a token to get the sample. A great selling point and quite an experience for the customer as well. For the more adventurous ones, wasabi ice cream or maybe the aged balsamic vinegar might be your thing but I would rather sample them than eat them for my own treat. 


My cousin who came to visit all the ay from Manila did enjoy the experience of trying out different flavours but ended with a regular flavour.

* Auntie Ei(from Manila, Philippines)



* Kimi, Kenzo and Uncle Eric (from Netherlands)

* Mel and Eileen

* My chickadees

* Cousins United
