This week’s VM Mom to Follow is Marcia Tsang and her Instagram photos are amazing! Marcia is a medical office manager and full-time mom to energetic 3 year-old boy, Joshua. She lives in Olympic Village where she loves to go for a stroll along the seawall with her family almost every day, rain or shine. She is an extroverted mom and loves to explore new places with Joshua, like checking out new murals, visiting new bookstores, and restaurants.
Five Vancouver spots Marcia loves to go with her son
(from the Village Dock to Granville Island)
We love be a tourist in our own city! Joshua loves to ride on the Aquabus! We get the 3 month pass every summer. It is the best way to keep Joshua entertained in the nice weather. It is also a great alternative to driving downtown (you can save lots $ on parking).
Mount Pleasant /Main Alley Urban Park
Joshua loves this transit adventure. He loves taking the skytrain, stopping by the Waterfront station watching trains and Helijets come and go, then hopping on the Seabus. It is fun and cheap. The whole journey costs just less than 5 bucks!
No ice cream, no life! Joshua is an ice cream foodie (mommy too). We like Tangram Creamery the most. Their house-made cookie cone is amazing. Joshua’s favourite is strawberry, and mine is Hojicha. If you are looking for creamy and smooth ice cream, you should check this place out.
2729 Arbutus St, Vancouver
We are their frequent visitors! They have a great selection of books! It is a very good alternative to Chapters. It’s small, but mighty! Their books are relatively cheaper. Sometimes, they have deeper discounts on some books. They have great toys, learning materials, and stationery too.
