Saturday Whirlwind

When we saw the list of to-dos for this Saturday, we knew it would be the busiest Saturday in 2012 so far so we started the day with a heavy breakfast. Typically I ate cereal for breakfast but today mine was leftovers from Friday.

Speaking of leftovers from Friday, we bought our dinner from Curry King and a BBQ stall at Crystal Mall. The portions from both food stalls were definitely not for us, they're for Wrestlers.

Char Koay Teow from Curry King
 Wife ordered her usual favorite: Penang Char Koay Teow. It is the best Char Koay Teow we've ever tried so far, hands down. Chef made it super spicy that day.

Nasi Goreng (Fried Rice) from Curry King
Been craving for some Nasi Goreng so I opted for this one. Quantity is massive to the power of infinity. Total bill for 2 dishes comes to $13.50. That's right $6.75 each, tax included *wink wink*.

BBQ Pork
While we were waiting for the Chef warrior of Curry King (he works alone in the back and at the cashier), we walked around and stumbled upon a BBQ stall so I decided to order a Roast Pork initially but due to a mixed-up we got BBQ Pork instead. I believe they sell a little bit cheaper compare to T & T BBQ stall. This one ends up probably around $6 for 0.5 lbs (BBQ stalls sell by lbs).

Once we're done with breakfast, straight to Superstore and T & T Supermarket. Didn't get anything special this time other than the snacks :). Will blog about them snacks on separate post.

Coast Capital was next on our list to visit. We've been shopping for a new financial institutions to get a better deals and was interested at Coast Capital due to their no-fees product offerings. Did not made the decision yet after the visit.

Next on the list was Ikea Richmond. Wife wanted to check out a few items.

Kid's Ultimate Bedroom
Cute Glow-in-the-Dark Dolls
Dog Dolls without Baby Drools (yet)
For Kids to act like Adults
Funky Wacky Cartoon-themed Wardrobe
We were tempted to have our lunch there but opted to go to another place instead: Aberdeen Center. As always, the process of getting into Aberdeen Center parking lot around 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM is proven to be a struggle. But since we were determined to get our lunch within the mall, we pushed through.

Once we filled our our stomach at Chef Hung Taiwanese Beef Noodle, we were on the move again, window shopping around the mall. Haven't been here for a while, we noticed that there are more visitors and the stores are more alive compare to our last visit.

Two NCIXs??
Found 2 NCIX stores next to each other. The left store seemes to sell TVs while the right store is your typical NCIX computer shops. Speaking of NCIX, I haven't had any purchase from there ever since 2010 due to lifestyle adjustments.

Found an interesting store selling traditional Chinese clothes for small kids. Teased wife that we may buy one of them soon.

Decided to stop by at Daiso to purchase small household items (that we can't find from the usual supermarkets).

Once things were wrapped up at Aberdeen Center, wife suddenly had an idea to visit a mysterious store that sells hometown snacks due to the proximity with Richmond. We managed to put a big hole on our wallet at this store.

Our last place to visit was CIBC as we had made an appointment with them to check out their financial product offerings. Not satisfied (CIBC rates are brutally low), we decided to go next door (literally) to BMO before we called it a day because my neck was stiff ever since we met with the financial advisor at Coast Capital earlier in the day.

Tried out this super hot pad after afternoon shower for some comfort. So far it gave a "pleasant" burning sensation to my skin but seemed to work.
