Clouds over Vancouver

What would have been a perfectly nice, if cloudy weekend was marred by someone breaking into my car and stealing my GPS, ipod cables, and a sweater(!). When Anjing said we had to call the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, I was imagining some guy on horseback galloping into the garage... but alas we just had to give the details of the theft through the phone.

Oh Canada!

Other than having to have my window repaired, it was a fun weekend; we went to Granville Island, and then went to Richmond to take a peek at the Olympic oval. On Sunday went to Easter Mass at a church with so many Filipinos, it was like having mass at home. Vancouver definitely has a lot more Asian feel to it than Seattle. We had Dimsum--it was good, about as good as you'd get in Hong Kong, I'd say (which is pretty dang good).

I'm looking forward to visiting again, hopefully then it won't be so stressful with the car and all. This is the second time someone broke into my car in two years! I feel so violated.

Coming back to Seattle, I had to navigate the old fashioned way--with directions printed out from Google maps, and looking at the signs.


  1. Just be careful not to leave any valuable items that can be easily seen inside your car. Although it's a hassle, put your GPS in your glove compartment every time you're not using it. Good thing they did not stole your new car.

  2. The thing is, I did put the GPS inside the glove compartment. I tried to hide everything away, but they broke into the car anyway :(. I was told that I should lock the car with the glove compartment open to show that there's nothing in it... :/

  3. damn. that sux :(

    lagyan mo ng remote control bomb ung gps...pero blow it up agad bago mabenta :) sorry to hear that

  4. For all that, Vancouver is a very nice city. Just have to be more careful, I guess.

  5. Anjing? Was she on Cotabato when I went there?

    Anyway, glad nothing happened to you, better your things than yourself.

  6. Hey Roy...glad the GPS thing did dampen any desire for your coming back to visit me! Its not as cloudy anymore here. Weather is beautiful now as you probably would know since you live in Seattle. I am moving in July.. so after I have settled in come visit me again! Although I will have a spare bedroom, you probaably will still have to sleep on the air bed.
