Freedom, to me, is about letting your imagination flow and setting dreams that sound like they'll be really cool memorable experiences. Control, in this case, is a huge part of that freedom. For traveling, knowing the destination and the constraints are a part of a responsible set of planning ...

After being a part of Jason Womack's Get Momentum, I feel motivated and informed on how to evaluate my goals and get them done in a timely manner.

I had a short 3-day visit in Whistler staying in Whistler village and jam packing the days with hikes, ziplining, ATV tours, and little day trips nearby.

Introduction
Clemens Wan is an Electrical Engineering Master's and Bachelors graduate from Cooper Union.  He currently has been bitten by the travel bug and feels the need to explore his career choices through backpacking while researching at various Universities in Japan and Germany.  

He keeps a blog of these travels (seelemonsonline.wordpress.com) and tries to use these experiences to find the career that will suit him best.  The bulk of his research has been involved with artificial intelligence applications to robotics, but his main interests within these new cultural environments involves learning new languages, new customs, and finding new hobbies.  With a constant and persistent search for happiness, he maintains productivity while trying to stray from any particular routine.  

The working world scares him to death, but not because he's not qualified - every interest just seems to fight for his attention like a child with ADHD in a room full of shiny objects.  He feels like a jack of all trades, but a master in none and it's scary that he must make sacrfices to become an expert in a particular field.  

The more he learns about the world, the less he feels like he knows, and despite the obvious downward spiral towards realizing his insignificance, this seems to be a motivation more than a discouragement.  

Hopefully, he will find a place to call home and just be happy with his contributions towards the community he influences - whether it involves immediate family members and friends, or a large social network of random followers and acquaintences, there will be a group that will miss him.

I moved nearby a month ago and came here for Sunday boozy brunch and some quick dinners. I personally love the comfort food menu and choice of beers. Brunch is pretty damn delicious. I just posted a photo of the pulled pork eggs benedict, which was beautiful. Paired great with those bottomless belinis.

Surprisingly authentic and delicious noodle soups. Get the Beef noodle soup if you're into super tender beef belly. Yum. Great portions and enough soup to take home afterwards and add more noodles to. Hong Kong / Cantonese style food choices are solid. I'd avoid the mapo tofu - save that for Shanghai-nese places.

Great price for a specialized dish. If you do curry well, why change it? I'd recommend a single. Double if you're hungry and xl if you want to take some home. Get the Home run if you're looking to share.

Very open space, but could use more bar room. The tasting was pretty lovely and I loved the oysters on a half shell outside. There was a lot of hype for this place, but it wasn’t as impressive as all the magazines wrote about. The wine was decent, but I wasn’t blown away by any of them.

Excellent selection and definitely fresher air than the new world mall basement crowded space. Hand pulled noodles and the different pig organs (tastes better than it reads) were delicious. I was here around noon on a Saturday and didn't have a problem getting a seat for 4.

Just found out about this place and I can't wait to try more things on the menu. Very reasonable price and huge portions. Definitely order the soup dumplings. They're not as good as some places in Chinatown or flushing, but it's cool seeing them make it fresh. I really love the wine chicken. I think it's salty and goes well with noodles.

One of our favorite vineyards because it has a full gambit of activity. Love the live music and huge picnic area. We got an awesome horse ride for 20 minutes and just drank a whole bottle of wine while chatting. This was also the only winery that had a food truck on the premise. Really good idea because I’m sure they made a killing. For the drinking 20-30year olds, there’s corn hole right next to the horse ride area. Definitely a great place to revisit and hang out for 2-3 hours.
