(Disclaimer: Now the misses are subjective. My tastes are different from yours. Although there are no true misses in this post. These are just some of the locations that I visited. These are most of the other places, before my last travel post of the beautiful, Victoria BC.)

T&T Supermarket: Hit Coquitlam, Burnaby & Vancouver BC (I went a few times)   A huge Asian market, located around BC, Alberta and a few places in Ontario. I'm kind of in love with this place and the coconut buns. I'm not really a bread person but I could become one. Warning, it's always busy and crowded, so if that's not your thing, stay away.




I-Mart: Hit   Asian market, in Burnaby, BC

London Drugs: Hit   In Burnaby, BC. Similar to Shoppers Drug Mart in price, but with more house ware. I had to leave before I bought more then I intended to. Mostly expensive with good deals splattered around the store, if you look for them.

Diana Market: Hit Burnaby, BC   Small Middle Eastern market, where I found some great spices. I can see myself going back to restock when I'm in the area.


Hannam Supermarket: Hit   Another Asian market in, Burnaby, BC


Choice Markets: Hit   In Vancouver, BC. Great produce and selection. Comparable to Whole Foods but on a smaller scale. Pricier, not for bargain hunters/budget people. But I like to check out all options.

Save -on-Foods: Hit   In Burnaby, BC. Large store, great selection on organic, health foods. Can be pricey, but you can find good deals if you look around, plus they have a rewards program. Points are always good in my book!


GOGO PIZZA & PASTA HOUSE: Hit, takeout in Coquitlam, BC   2 pizzas for under $20. Great prices. The business looked clean. I did not get food poisoning. Great customer service. Pizza was very tasty. I had extra pepperoni, mushrooms, extra cheese. Good crust, nicely flavoured sauce. Able to change from regular crust to thin crust. A lot of combo deals available.  Check it out.

Burnaby GOGO Pizza & Pasta House 3

Belmont Bakery & Bistro: Hit   In New Westminster, BC. The apple pie I had tasted like homemade, it was so good. Not too sweet. Ample filling, with the apples still firm. Flaky, crispy, not-too-thick crust. I will be visiting them again if I get to go back to the area. (Which I have since. The pierogies are super tasty.

Yokoyaya: Hit  In Vancouver BC   Japanese dollar store, but like other dollar stores, very few items are just $1.


Old Navy: Hit   Clothing store, in Canada and the US. This one was in Surrey, BC

Bentley: Hit   Luggage and accessory store, in New Westminster, BC. Located across the country. Where i found the bottle protectors.

Bed Bath & Beyond: Hit   In Richmond, BC. Great deals occurring all of the time, if you're wiling to spend a little money. The store does smell good, if you're not overly sensitive to perfumes/scents.

Dollar Tree Stores Canada, Inc.: Hit   In Burnaby, BC. I love a great dollar store. You can find great prices and many of them have brand name items.

WalmartA reluctant Hit Burnaby, BC   I normally wouldn't do this but I have to give Walmart a shout out. I needed a last minute bag & lock and they were the only place open at 10 p.m on a Sunday night. Plus the customer service was great.

Till next time,


So far, so good. There's a lot to do, in a short amount of time. Even with all the hustle and bustle, including my last assignment & a lot of walking, I'm having a good time. It's also so nice to walk around with just an extra sweater, and no coat. That I like so far.

Burnaby is nice and where my friend lives is convenient to everything. Vancouver is nice, to shop in and visit. I do know that I have no desire to live in the downtown core.  Crowds are not my thing. Visiting New Westminster, Surrey, Kelwona? next and I'm hoping that I get the "feeling", one of them is the place for me. But I'm also going to the Victoria area, so I'm hoping I like it there as well. I'm thinking at the end of my trip I'll do a hit or miss list of food places, with a super short review of each. Who knows, everyone has different tastes. I'll think about it.

I went Stanley Park yesterday, but I forgot that SD card at my friends place, so I'll post some of those photos later. Here are a couple that I took with my little camera for now. I hope everyone has a great weekend!

Hit 🙂
