The hard rock casino (Vancouver/Coquitlam) has converted one of the restaurants they had before into a buffet. I have been to the buffet twice now and I have to be a little biased because the two times I have eaten the buffet and then went into the casino are the two biggest winning days I have ever had in any casino. I have eaten in other restaurant in the hard rock and had no luck in the casino until I ate the buffet.  The first time was new and it was around 5 which was the start of dinner the line was prett...

I bought this of a social coupon site to start with. It is a booking service to get cleaners or repair men and they say people are experienced and they are rated by people who have used them you can request someone regularly. I have never used them and went with what was assigned to me you and didn't do the research on what the reviews were.  What I like about it is that it is easier to get time slots that are convienient because different people are working there are only certain times where I can be home ...

Before using Finish Dishwasher cleaner in my dishwasher I have had this dishwasher for over 5 years and have never used a cleaner it. The most I have done is once in a while ran a vinegar soaked sponge through it. My dishes are starting to come out streaked and Shopper's army has given me this to try out for free.  I only went to one store to buy it which was Walmart hard to find as it was way up on the shelf but shout out to the wal-mart employee who noticed I was not tall enough to reach that high shel...

I have a cold and wanted the perfect vegetarian soup just a little bit spicy to clear the sinuses but not insanely hot. Yes I have a soup maker and do make soup myself all the time but sometimes its better if someone else makes it for you. There aren't too many places where I would go to eat soup in my neighbourhood its hard to find good vegetarian options and I can make really good soup in less than 25 minutes in my soup maker. Then I remembered Hon's used to have a hot and sour vegetarian soup. Hon's i...

I had bought a groupon for the VIP car on the highroller in Vegas. The highroller is one of the new attractions in Vegas they call it the world's largest observation wheel its like a nice ferris wheel. The ride is 30 minutes overlooking the Vegas strip. The VIP car's have private bars on them and there is an option to go during the day or at night. We were staying at the Linq and the high roller is connected with the hotel so it was a short walk away. I don't drink but I preferred to be in a private car...

If you have never been to the Richmond Night Market there are many food stalls and various food items along with the very normal asian style items but the dessert items seem to have a lot of interesting shapes. Walking down the food stall I thought does that sign really say poo bun and what is a poo bun. My friend yes I saw it before the bun is shaped like a turd and it served with condensed milk. Left it at that but after roaming and looking at the price of mini donuts $12. We decided that this 3 buns for $5 would ...

Carnevino is in the Venetian in Vegas. We were actually on our way out going to another hotel restaurant but were hungry and checked out the menu and decided to stay. I am so glad we did. First the host asks about any dietary restrictions told her we were vegetarian and she put it in the computer. The server came over to explain the menu first thing he suggested we try the meat special so the message about vegetarian didn't get to him. Once I told him he explained every vegetarian item on the menu. The menu is o...

I have been to Vegas many times and I now prefer staying off the strip at South Point. This time I went with a 21 year old so decided to stay on in the center of strip so she could have her full legal Vegas experience. As we were on a budget I was able to get us a rate of $28 per night through my total rewards account for the Linq hotel  plus $25 resort fee that most Vegas hotel have no. I was hesitant as even the regular price was at $60 per night so low for a mid strip hotel and the reviews were varied but it...

This facemask has chocolate in it that's why I chose it it smells really good. I saw this display on ice which is what brought me into the store to look at it. There were a few bowls of the different facemasks. I told the sales lady I wanted one and she got a tub out of the fridge told me I needed to store it in the fridge because there are fresh ingredients in. She told me to put it on leave it for 10 minutes and wash it off with hot water. The actual tub has the same instructions on it and there is an expiry d...

Minoo is a persian bakery in coquitlam. They have really good cookies that are filled with nuts and have different flavours. You purchase things based on weight I believe its $3 or $4 per pound so you can buy whatever assortment you want. I bought a box to take to a party and got a mixture of the sweet persian cookies which are like a light shortbread with different nuts, flavourings some with chocolate some with things like orange or cocunut.  Today they had turkish cookies. They are like a cookie but more on ...

Pinecone Research has become my favourite site to complete surveys. The surveys pay $3 each but they only take around 15 minutes and I enjoy competing the ones they send sometimes they also send products to test and another $3 survey to go with it. This survey site is different than the other in that you qualify for every survey that is sent to you and you don't have to fill in extra questions to see if you do qualify. I have only been getting on average 3 surveys a week but that spare cash does add up. It is a...

I received a voxbox from influester to try out. I received the shampoo, conditioner and the thickening booster. What liked about this was the ease of use just shampoo and rinse, add some booster, then add conditioner and rinse. The first few times I tried this I really liked the effect on my hair I am not sure if it really added volume but it did make my waves less frizzy my hair looked great and I liked the scent of this product. As I have been using it everyday I was starting to find my hair a different texture bu...

We were thinking about sushi on our way home saw this and decided to stop. We were going to get take out but decided to stay after we were in the place was really busy. We just sat at a small table and we were lucky to get it. We noticed that it was full of customers but none were asian. The service was good and prompt. The food was pretty good the sushi to me was okay not the best but not bad. However the bill was suprisingly cheap. We had some sweet  potatoe patties for an appetizer, came with 6 of them and s...

I barely ever watch movies I am a Steven Hawking fan from The Big Bang Theory so I wanted to see this one. This movie is about Steven Hawking life I watched the movie on shaw on demand so don't have the theater experience but it was a really good movie. The acting in the movie is amazing by both the male and femaile leads. It has a good story line its authetic and good acting so there was nothing wrong with it. The only thing I wanted to see a bit about in the movie was how he got in to acting. I like that the s...

I got a little free sample of this in the mail being a l'occitane vip I do love that they mail small samples all the time. I am always hesitant to try new things on my face. I put some eyebrow pencil on my hand then used a little bit of the make up remover and it worked really well its nice that its oil because it leaves your skin soft. I had a bit of redness on my hand and coudln't tell if it was because I pressed too hard with the pencil or it was the remover. On the other hand I put cc cream this one is u...
