Review + Giveaway: HelloFresh Meal Box Delivery Service

Linda Hoang - February 11, 2017
HelloFresh Canada Food Meal Box Delivery 1

Mike and I have tried some food delivery subscription services in past, but have never landed on anything we wanted to use long-term. Either the delivery dates for our neighbourhood were too close to the weekend (so we’d be eating out during those days anyway and food would go to waste) or we’d get ingredients in the box and some ideas on what to make …

SideQuests Adventure Inc Edmonton Escape Rooms

Happy New Year everyone! I was hoping my first post of 2017 would be some type of thoughtful recap of the past year and just as thoughtful look-ahead to the coming year, but I haven’t really had a chance to put together those thoughtful thoughts, so instead I’m going to blab on about some more Edmonton escape games. :)  I always love when an escape room introduces new …

Time Escape Edmonton Escape Rooms

I’ve been fortunate to have made it on some kind sort of “Edmonton escape game” list over the last two years – as new escape rooms open, I’m often invited to give the rooms a try, share my experience on this blog and run some kind of giveaway for readers. It’s been a lot of fun and means I’ve been able to try a lot of escape rooms …

Review + Giveaway: The Rec Room (Edmonton)

Linda Hoang - December 6, 2016
The Rec Room Edmonton Cineplex South Common

When I was younger, I used to spend a lot of time in the mall arcades with my brothers. I have really fond memories of playing different games and watching my brothers play theirs. We would spend hours at the arcade.  Those kinds of arcades and entertainment centres have become harder to come by over the years, which is why I was pretty excited for The Rec Room to …

Giveaway: Opening Night Tickets to Cirque du Soleil’s TORUK The First Flight (Edmonton)

Linda Hoang - November 26, 2016
Cirque du Soleil TORUK

Mike and I have been to a few Cirque du Soleil shows over the years and we always come away from them feeling just in awe.  The artistry, the incredible stunts, the beautiful and elaborate sets, costumes, make up, music, storytelling – there hasn’t been a Cirque show we’ve gone to that didn’t amaze us.  That’s why I’m so excited to see the upcoming Cirque du …

Edmonton Corn Maze

While summer may mainly be over now, there are still so many events and activities to do in Edmonton! Something we had been meaning to do all summer but kept missing, was visiting the Edmonton Corn Maze. We finally went over the long weekend! The Edmonton Corn Maze is located just slightly south west of the city (it’s like a 10-minute drive from where we live on the west …

Travel Jasper - Explore Alberta - Canadian Rockies - Jasper SkyTram Mount Whistler's

I have a new friend (co-worker) who has basically driven out to Jasper every weekend this summer. He’s big on hiking/mountain climbing and Jasper is close enough for frequent, nature-filled day trips. His beautiful photos made me especially excited about the trip to Jasper I took this August! Examples: A photo posted by James Eastham (@james.eastham) on Jun 5, 2016 at 10:39pm PDT A photo …

Recap + Giveaway: $200 for House Cleaning Services from Mad Maids

Linda Hoang - June 1, 2016

I hate cleaning. Ha ha. The last time I wrote about cleaning, I said I ‘loathed’ it because hate is such a strong word, but after some months, I’ve decided ‘hate’ works for this. I really hate cleaning, lol. There’s just a lot of things I’d much rather be doing. This past year, Mike and I decided that paying for convenience is worth it – especially …
