Top 10 best camera apps

I met up with a long time friend yesterday evening for dinner and we chit chatted for 3 hours. She asked how often do I blog. My reply was an embarrassed giggle and two words -' almost daily'. I don't really know why I have so much random stuff and junk to talk about but I guess, it's verbal diarrhea and the need to offload it on a daily basis?

Anyway, I have digressed from the original topic.

So Time recently posted the Top 10 camera apps for the iPhone. I have 7 out of 10 of the apps -_- I think camera apps make up the most of my apps on my iPhone - 1.5 pages. Anyway, I thought it would be good to share this since most of us are using the iPhone.

Enjoy.

Granville


Granville public market


Granville island is a short and I mean, really short 3 minutes boat ride across from Vancouver. It has a fantastic public market which reminds me of the Victoria Market in Melbourne. There is a cultural arts centre, numerous food stalls, a beer brewery, gift shops and even an arts college.

If there is one thing that I wished Singapore had, was a market just like the one at Granville or like the Victoria Market. Food is fresh and cheap, the variety plenty and you can even buy freshly made pasta and gourmet ingredients. It's clean and convenient and it makes me feel like rushing back home to cook! But I guess the humidity here makes it difficult to have something like this out here.

Fish and chips


Cod fish & chips


Eaten with vinegar and ketchup


My Canadian friend told me that I had to look for the Grotto fish & chips sold at a little shack outside of Granville Island. I tried. But gave up after awhile. We decided to check out Tony's Fish & Chips which was a tiny homestyle like cafe.

Service was friendly and prompt and the fish and chips was good. Burgers and other seafood entrees are served here as well but we decided to just opt for fish & chips! You can choose your fish type - halibut, salmon and cod. I'm a huge cod lover so it was an easy choice to make.

Frankly, I am not a big fish & chips fan. But if I do decide to eat it, I prefer the beer battered versions over the breaded. I like the fact that at Tony's, it is served with vinegar! I think that's the way to eat it!
