Halloween is on Full Swing at Maan Farms

I love Halloween. Maybe it’s the cool and crisp autumn air, maybe it’s the bright fall foliage, or maybe it’s the fact I love getting scared half to insanity and back – but the thoughts of ghouls, ghosts, and hauntings really are my cup of tea. Every year, my best friend Josh and I head…

Acclaimed Van Gogh Exhibit is Coming to Vancouver

Fresh from its last stop in Winnipeg, the Imagine Van Gogh exhibit is coming to the Vancouver Convention Centre in February and I for one, cannot wait. Vincent Van Gogh is my favourite artist. I remember standing for hours at the Met in NYC staring at Starry Night – drinking in every once of madness…

The Scariest Corn Maze in Canada is Back at Maan Farms

The Maan Farms Corn Maze is one of my favourite Halloween traditions in the Lower Mainland and I am so glad that it’s back! The maze changes each time and this year, the theme takes you to an abandoned testing facility and the horrors within. Due to limited capacity and COVID-19 protocols, the experience is…

Music, good food and romance can be found in Abbotsford

Abbotsford BC is sometimes known as The City in the Country – close enough to Vancouver, but far enough away to enjoy the vast farm fields and proximity to nature. Also for any food aficionado, it offers delicious farm-to-table dining options as well as charming vineyards, farmers markets and stores. To celebrate our wedding anniversary,…

So it’s only fair that this yummy little berry gets its own holiday. July 15th is officially Blueberry Day in British Columbia, and what better way to celebrate than the Go Blue BC Virtual…

Get Your Fill of Mini-Donuts this Weekend at the PNE

Considering the new COVID-19 restrictions, going to the PNE the traditional way won’t be possible this year – yet the team behind the Pacific National Exhibition is working hard to still be able to support its vendors and bring some of the joy back. A Taste of the PNE is one of the first events…

Holiday Must: The Nutcracker Featuring the Surrey City Orchestra

I remember the first time I saw The Nutcracker when I was a little kid: everything was so magical, the music, the story, the dancing. And of course, who wouldn’t want their nutcracker turning into a handsome prince after slaying an evil king? I’m very keen on sharing the magic of The Nutcracker with my…

2019 Holiday Events Listing

Without a doubt, the holiday season is my favourite time of the year! I don’t know if it’s the lights, the food, the excitement in the air, but there’s something about Christmas that lifts my spirits and delights me in a way that no other time of the year compares. Now that I’m a mom,…

Still Time to Get Spooked at Potter’s House of Horrors

I stand by my opinion that the best haunted house attraction in BC is right here in Surrey. Potter’s has been scaring and delighting visitors since 2003. Myself, a Surrey resident, have been enjoying coming here for several years. As a matter of fact, one of my very first posts on this blog was about…
