Honolulu and Vancouver visit

I took a glorious 10 day vacation to Honolulu and Vancouver, and had a chance to catch up with some old and great friends. Kevin Lim, former RA staff, is now a PhD student at the University of Hawaii in Honolulu, and also self-declared foodie.

Kevin took me to the perfect sunset viewing spot at Ala Moana Beach Park, and then for unforgettable pan-fried pork chops at the Side Street Inn – definitely an insiders-only secret!  Delicious.

I stopped in Vancouver on the way back and caught up with Su-An Ng, winner of the 2010 Reel Asian Animasian Award. We met up on Main Street and Su-An brought me some Chinese New Year snacks that her mom had sent from Singapore – yummy! Su-An will be at SFIAAFF with her winning short – NATURE ON ITS COURSE so look out for more news from her.
