Vancouver and Whistler 2012

Went to Canada for a 5 days conference on early March 2012 and spend another 3 days in Whistler (a winter resort 2-hours drive from Vancouver). Theses are some of the photos taken when we were not holding umbrella, it rained almost everyday.

Spend half a day at Scandinave spa whistler for couple massage and outdoor bath.
Its really therapeutic dipping in the 40degreeC bath with snows falling on your head and looking at the expansive view of the mountain. This place is a piece of heaven!

Had one of our best Whistler dining experience in HY's steakhouse.
Its always nice to sip some wine over hot meal with love ones and enjoy the snow outside the window.
