Warmer temperatures were experienced at the beginning of the week, though rain- and hail-inducing winds prevailed as the weekend neared.
With the latest of my photography expenditures veering into long exposure territory (1, 2), it was only fitting that I seized the opportunity to test my newly-obtained ND filters one quiet weekday evening.
I'll likely continue to suppress any cravings that surface before payday, or compromise by searching for an alternative (potentially DIY) solution.
Eating out on a budget is no easy feat, however it does challenge one to think creatively.
The major differences between these two Vietnamese-operated grab-and-go locations lies within their food preparation process and banh mi varieties. While Bamboo Bubble Tea processes orders at a front-facing counter, their drinks and food items are all concocted in a kitchen completely concealed behind Oriental-style panels; Banh Mi Brampton Bubble Tea allows customers to see exactly what is going into their sandwiches, along with the fact that the operator does indeed use plastic gloves when handling them.
Both establishments are cash-only, though I do believe that Bamboo Bubble Tea also had the option of debit payment.
Speaking in terms of its location, the speed and service had been exceptional. Unfortunately, the overall quality of the final product was a little less than appealing for a second visit.
(Side: We opted out of the shop's available drink options (bubble tea and coffee), as it was almost guaranteed that we would be consuming powdered drinks and subpar instant java.)
Housed within the same ancient plaza was an Oceans-like supermarket by the name of Four Seasons, as well as a Chinese bakery called Cake Village.
And so concludes this week's adventures!
