Date Night: Hart House in Burnaby

In About Me, Around Vancouver, Fujifilm X100, With my girlfriend, With People I love on 02/11/2012 at 1:14 pm

Ohhhh.. Another eerie restaurant. Just like the teahouse in Stanley Park, this one was another beautiful home with a lot of history! The thirteen-acre estate Hart House has a plethora of history that dates back to 1906 though the restaurant has only been open since 1988. Janelle and I had dinner there to celebrate my new position as a RN for a local hospital here in the Greater Vancouver Area. Look at the other photos we took after the break!

Upgrade Rant – Part 1: Wireless Triggers!

In Self Realizations on 03/08/2010 at 8:07 am

Today, I wanted to talk about upgrading my wireless triggers. I plan to go from those cheap-o ebay triggers to prosumer (professional/consumer) grade triggers like the alienbees cybersyncs produced by Paul C Buff. Professional triggers like pocketwizard are too expensive for me, and I really have to draw the line somewhere.

So let’s talk about Wireless triggers!

088/365 – I go to school here?!

I just realized that I go to school at a hospital. And i never had this realization even when i attended clinical at Lions Gate Hospital or Vancouver General Hospital.

Just what do i do here? Well, just as every nursing student, i help patients get better and i empower them through teaching. It’s really a rewarding job.

087/365 – Wow! Monstrous Heads!

I saw these on a friend’s blog and i just had to see them for myself! They ARE really really big! I tried to compose and compose and compose using an iphone to show you how big they were, but seriously, i couldnt get it done.

Anyways, so after i saw these, i headed straight to future shop to have a gander at the 7D. (you like that word; Gander? fancy eh?)

085/365 – Brand New Car Smell!

085/365 – Brand New Car Smell!

Janelle and I spent a good amount of our time at suzuki yesterday. Her parents wanted to find a reliable compact SUV. They tried the RAV4, Equinox, CRV, and the Grand Vitara. In the end, they picked the Grand Vitara and drove home with it that night.

I remembered when the grand vitara first came out. I wanted one because at that time, it looked so sexy and actually, to this date, it still does.

084/365 – Ilanaaq the Inukshuk + Avatar

Has anyone seen this before? It’s on Gilbert in Richmond! I thought that it was the coolest thing ever!

Later that night, i went to watch avatar with Janelle. Rotten Tomato rated it at 92%, and we decided that it’d be either avatar or the book of Eli. So we decided to go with the higher rating and it really didn’t disappoint. Actually, the only thing that we didn’t like was the fact that it was not in IMAX 3D. I’d rewatch that movie in iMAX 3D! it’s visually stunning! I loved the camera angles!

082/365 – Little White Chapel…

082/365 – Little White Chapel…

Today, I came early to Richmond Hospital so that i could try to photocopy some material at the library. But the library was closed, so i went straight to the place where i would meet the rest of my clinical group. Since i was caught up with work and was prepared for the day, i started to think about what i would post for my 365. I opened the blinds in the boardroom and immediately, I saw the white chapel that’s placed behind the theater and the hospital. Coincidently, there seemed to be a wedding happening, so i decided to run outside and take pictures with my iPhone.
