Canada Trip Day 7: Aunt's Fridge Magnet Collection & Empire Garden Chinese Restaurant

19 June 2010 - After a long day touring around British Columbia, we rested at my uncle's place. My aunt has a huge collection of fridge magnets that almost covered one entire wall of her kitchen.

That night, we had a hearty dinner at Empire Garden Chinese Restaurant in Langley. The Peking Duck was most delicious though I thought the lettuce wraps with Peking Duck tasted a little funny. Butter cream sauce crab was another yummy dish we had.
