Surrey, Festivals & Events
Last year I spent July first at the City of Surrey Canada Day Celebrations at Cloverdale Millennium Amphitheatre. It was a beautiful sunny day in a lovely park filled with all sorts of free entertainment!
I brought my lawn chair and a sun umbrella and picked a spot on the grass with a good view of the main stage. I then sat back and watched many of the music, dancing and magic shows that were part of the day’s festivities. The estimated 70 000 people in attendance seemed to enjoy themselves and many were proudly dressed in clothing bearing the Canadian flag. The children seemed thrilled to have their faces painted with a red maple leaf and many danced and sang along with the performers of the children’s stage! The highlight of my day had to have been the fireworks display in the evening. What a great show!

There is not much anyone can do when the weather isn’t ideal outside. Last Saturday, I decided to venture out and try something new. My boyfriend and I love dining out and trying new cuisines. Since it was pouring outside, we decided to go for something spicy that will warm us up: Indian food. We went to “Taste of Punjab” in Whalley, since it came recommended by an East Indian co-worker for its authentic flavours. I order a butter chicken dish with rice while my boyfriend decided to try one of the chef’s recommendations, an assortment of different Indian dishes that include chicken, lamb, and beef. The food was absolutely delicious and the portions were more than enough. The atmosphere of the restaurant was excellent and I would definitely go back again. I recommend this to anyone who enjoys lots of flavour and spice in their food and is interested in trying something ethnic.
