I got back in Vancouver just in time for Mother’s Day. Being Mother’s Day, Sarah and I took my mom and dad out for dinner. We went to Phnom Penh at 244 E. Georgia Street. This is one of my favorite South East Asian restaurants. Phnom Penh is known for their dry rice noodles and marinated butter beef. This was the first time at this restaurant for my parents and they really like it. I’m sure they’ll be dining there again in the future.
After dinner, I went to return the GPS I borrow from my brother for use during my time in Los Angeles. The GPS proved to be a life saver, getting us exactly where we wanted to go and even helping us find places to eat and shop. The only time it failed was on Thursday. The smog in LA was so high that the GPS couldn’t pick up any satellite signals! Lucky for us we knew how to get from the hotel to the convention center.
I’m now looking for a unit of my own. I’m leaning towards the Lowrance iWAY 500C because it has a big 5 inch screen compared to the 3.5 inch screen of the Magellan RoadMate 700. Before I buy it, I’m going to try and get it for free by calling their PR department and asking for a review sample.
