Flight 2 Dessert Club x Potluck Hawker's Eatery

My friends have been raving about Potluck Hawker's Eatery and it was about time I tried it for myself. Pastry Chef extraordinaire, Sam Shem of The Dessert Club, is collaborating with various chefs and restaurants across Metro Vancouver for his Will Travel for Food series. Flight 2 takes us to Thailand and the Philippines! The Flight 2 collaboration between The Dessert Club and Chefs Justin Cheung and Raymond Reyes of Potluck Hawker's Eatery was a 2-day event. 

Since it was a limited event, tickets had to be purchased in advance. It was $55 per person which included a snack, beverage (alcoholic or non-alcoholic), main and dessert. 

  • House-made bar snacks
  • Choice of beverage (alcoholic and non alcoholic options available)
  • Choice of main: Khao Soi Gai (Chiang Mai style curry chicken noodles) or Sisig Sizzle Rice (Filipino minced pig head cast iron rice plate)
  • Choice of dessert: Thai Tea Ice cream cake, Halo Halo or Turon with Chocolate Pot de Crème

HAPPY NEW YEAR! 2022 is Pronounced 2020 Too?

Pandemic year number 2 has come to an end and we have officially entered 2022! For me, 2021 was still a great year. I know for many it was financially and medically challenging, but I was lucky to have had some wonderful experiences. 

In 2021:

  • Purchased my very first home! A beautiful 2 bedroom 2.5 bathroom Townhouse!
  • Made amazing new friends 
  • Started a Fiverr business
  • Began taking care of my skin with monthly facials
  • Took a spontaneous trip to Calgary to Banff to Golden B.C. and back
  • Celebrated my 28th birthday with the Four Seasons Whistler team
  • Accepted a permanent work position
  • Shopped locally from independent boutiques
As for 2022, I do not know what it has in store for me. People are already labelling it to be a repeat of 2020 because if you say it out loud, it sounds a lot like "2020 Too." I for one want to stay positive. 

Happy New Year and Cheers to 2022!
