Cafe D'Lite

About a week and a half ago I went Christmas shopping with a friend of mine to grab a few last minute items. We ended up on West Broadway, for those that aren't familiar with this area, Broadway is an East/West thorough fare in the city of Vancouver, and much of it's streets are lined with retail outlets, cafes, and restaurants. West Broadway in particular has an old mom and pop feel to it's retail outlets, specializing in unique harder to find items. After some successful purchases we decided to stop for lunch, as we looked around you could see all kinds of restaurants, yet we managed to happen upon this tiny little place called Cafe D'Lite. From the exterior this establishment wasn't doing itself any favors, and we almost walked by just on its appearance alone.  Inside however it looked much more appealing, warm and inviting. It was however quite small, hosting a seating capacity of approximately 20 or so people. It specialized in Malaysian and Singapore cuisine,

Mini Cupcake Maker

As some of you many know, cupcakes seem to be all the rage nowadays. I am not sure what has caused it, but everyone seems to be making cupcakes no matter what the occasion is. Whether it be for your child's school parties or your very own wedding cake. Everyone wants cupcakes! Even Mass! The gift giving season of Christmas may be over, but with a new year just around the corner, it means a whole other year of birthdays. Maybe the Mini Cupcake Maker could be the perfect gift for the birthday girl, boy, mom, dad or entertainer! You can pick one up here for only $19.99 + S&H, how can you really go wrong? If any of you are like me, the last thing you would want in your house is an appliance that takes up room, can only be used for one thing and you would rarely use. However, if you have children or just love to entertain, this could be something worth your wild to make space for. The Mini Cupcake Maker makes 7 mini cupcakes is about 5 minutes. For anyone with children this would b

What I Didn't Get For Christmas...But Wanted

Seeing as I've been good all year (wink wink), I was really hoping Santa Claus would bring me everything I wanted. Well I got all kinds of wonderful things, but I really do believe he missed the mark by not getting everything on my list. So just in case he reads my blog, here's a list of things that I really really want and didn't get.

The screw down back is titanium, with a see through, smoked saphire window.

CSN Stores $10 Giveaway Contest

If anyone is like me, you would much rather shop online in the comfort of your own home than the alternative. Specially this time of year where you need to get dressed up in warm clothes, thaw out your vehicle before embarking on your journey through torrential weather while navigating a sea of other vehicles, only to find yourself praying to the mercy of the almighty parking Gods, then subjecting yourself to the impatient crowds as they wait in insanely long lineups at the checkouts.  Besides my fondness for online shopping, I often find really unique items, and some incredible prices. So  when I was asked to hold a contest by the friendly people at CSN Stores , offering the lucky winner a $10 promotional code for use on their next CSN Stores  purchases, I was eager to host this contest for my blog visitors. Besides CSN Stores is a huge virtual shopping mall packed with everything from patio furniture, to kid’s toys, to leather messenger bags . The contest is actually more of a treas

Getting Carried Away

Vagabond Works is hoping to cash in on the personal mobility device with their Land Crawler eXtreme. Instead of opting for wheels, like almost all forms of ground transportation, the LCX uses 12 legs and feet. The first model was developed back in 2008, since them the LCX has evolved to use pressure sensitive foot stands that control direction and speed. Capable of carrying 170lbs for about 45minutes before requiring recharging. Check out these videos 2008 2010 Via - Hack a Day
