Well, I guess it wasn't exactly like that.
My plan was simply to go out for a bit and be able to make it back in time for lunch with the grandparents.
But as BC's Translink system would have it, bus/SkyTrain tickets are only valid for a measly hour and a half transfer period (tickets back home are valid for a good two hours).
So hopping on the Canada Line to Waterfront from Aberdeen, I was able to reach Oakridge in less than 15 minutes, and run in to buy a Butterscotch Pecan muffin and Low-Fat Cranberry Blueberry muffin from mmmuffins for my grandparents and return back to the SkyTrain terminal in approximately 10 minutes.
Retracing my steps back, I eventually ended up at Pacific Centre some 10 minutes later, did what I came for, bought a Blackberry Mojito Iced Tea Lemonade at an extremely slow-operating Starbucks near the lower level of the Hudson's Bay, and took the SkyTrain back to Richmond at the stop I should have originally gotten off at.
In the afternoon, we went to Shoppers for a bit and then proceeded to Pinkberry to add more frozen yogurt markings to my stamp card.
And just for the note, Sugarpova toppings were nowhere near as good as I had hoped them to be; these rock-hard artificially-coloured sugary limps are severely over-hyped in my opinion.
This never-before-seen Mackintosh's toffee deriving from a sale at Shoppers doesn't taste particularly fantastic either.
