The Richmond Night Market is something I look forward to every year. Admission this year is $3.75 now. Since there were only 2 of us we decided not to get the zoom pass. We arrived at 6:50pm (they open at 7pm) and the line up was extremely long already. We waited 45 mins to get in but then the food line ups weren’t as long. If you go a bit later then the line up to get in will be shorter but the food line ups will be longer. Either way prepare to line up.
They are still doing the dino theme and have incorporated bumper cars into their line up of games! There were also mini bumper cars for younger kids. I felt bad for the ride attendant who kept getting bumped into by the kids. Read more
Disclaimer: I was invited to a media tasting at the Illumination Night Market by ChineseBites. All food and beverages were complimentary but opinions are my own.
This year the Illumination Night Market (previously Panda Market) will be charging a $3 admission fee. In previous years it was free but it’s still a bit cheaper than the other night market where admission is $3.75. They have added some pretty lights hence the name “Illumination” Night Market. I’ll be highlighting some of the items I enjoyed or thought were interesting as I tried too many things! Read more
My friend kindly sent me the Baker’s Krate box last month for my birthday and boy was I excited to receive it! To be fair, it was sitting at the post office for a few days before I went to pick it up because I missed it at my house…
Baker’s Krate selects different hand-crafted baked goods from all across Canada to ship to you every month. Sounds delicious already right? The treats they selected for August were right up my alley!

Cook Your Life is part of the Gateway Theatre Pacific Festival (加藝太平洋戲劇節). Taking place throughout September, the festival aims to present new and exciting theatre from Hong Kong. They are the only professional theatre to bring in shows from Hong Kong (aka across the Pacific).
Cook Your Life is created, directed and produced by May Chan. May cooks live onstage while she draws funny and insightful parallels between food and relationships. The show will start with some improvised dialogue in Cantonese and English so that even if you don’t understand Cantonese, you’ll still have an idea of what is going on. Don’t worry, there will also be English subtitles!
The show incorporates a 4-D theatre approach where the audience can see, hear, smell, and taste the experience (select audience members will be able to sample the food!). May also has her own cooking channel in Hong Kong. Read more
When I was at EAT! Vancouver this year, I discovered the Sue’s Jerky stall and boy was it amazing! I tried every flavour… multiple times. But I did end up buying one! They’re also locally made in Richmond!
I got the Slow Roasted Pulled Pork flavour and it was slightly sweet and not too chewy. The pulled pork is quite shredded too and I find that their jerky is softer? I wish the packs were bigger! I could’ve had two of these packs. They’re about 40g each. All the flavours were good and I hope to see them around somewhere. It’s just different from the jerky I usually see around (like BKH or the kind at the checkout counter in grocery stores).
I’m not sure where you can buy them except online through their website?
