Signals

There’s just so many of them in life that it confuzzles me once every so often.

“Come on guys, green means what? Green means go!” (from Twilight…).  But then sometimes, yellow also means gogogo and even red have meant “hey let’s go for it because it’s 3am and there are no cars on the road”.  It angers me when I see this, because it’s effing dangerous. Besides, if I have to stop, if the rest of the world needs to stop at a red, then buddy, you better stop.

Then there are stop signs that is just a signal to slow down to some people.

Of course, these are the simple ones in life – you’re taught it.  Smell rotten egg in the house, run. Alarm clock screaming, get up! Snowing outside, sighs. lol

But right now, I’m just confuzzed because sometimes, signals you receive are confuzzling. When emotions are put in play, everything just confuses itself.  But it makes my heart skip a beat when it happens…and it hasn’t happened for a good 3 years.  So, perhaps it’s all just another adventure. 🙂

p.s. if he plays that guitar…I’m a goner.

Tea time at Adonia

So it’s been a while since I’ve had the chance to go out to check out new high tea places, but we did manage it once during Christmas week.  This time it’s at Adonia Kerrisdale Tea House (2057 w. 41st Ave, Vancouver).

First impression: quaint.  To the point of…there’s totally not enough room in here.  Everything was very English, which is exactly the kind of thing I like, but the door opens and immediately in front is a small divider, and immediately behind the divider was a table. Which was where we ended up sitting…and it was COLD every time the door opened. I do suppose it’s better than a blast of heat in the summer.  Lots of little tables against the walls with 2 chairs, so if you have a bigger party (by bigger, I mean more than 2) I’d recommend making a reservation.

The tea selection was decent.  Lots of roiboos to choose from…but still, I am partial to the selection at Secret Garden.  I have yet to find something to beat the Vanilla Earl Grey (remember, this is coming from a girl who doesn’t like Earl Grey tea).

The food was set because it was the Christmas tea menu.  Most of it was decent.  The desserts were pretty good.  Most disappointing were the little quiches that we had.  Why? Because I have a pack of it in my freezer – purchased from Costco.  I didn’t pay 30+ dollars to have re-heated Costco quiches (and suspicious about the potato salad!), no matter how great they taste.

Service was good.  The girl was running around so much though, I felt bad to ask for more hot water. Considering they were turning people away because everything was reserved, I figure adding another body to help out that day would’ve been great.

This one is a recommend.  But with Secret Garden literally just around the bend, I’d go back to Adonia only if Secret Garden was full.
