Be Open to Suggestions

Most people like to think that they are right. When someone comes along and tells them otherwise,  they tend to ignore what that person has to say. That is called ignorance. Oftentimes it takes an outsider to see the problems that insiders may have missed, so I think it’s wise to always be open to suggestions. You should take the time to actually listen to what other people have to say, because they may have seen something that you missed by being in an environment for too long.

Sometimes people become too fixed on doing something one way, and they fail to see the fact that there’s a better way to do it. There is nothing wrong with that. However, I really dislike it when they still continue to stubbornly do what they’ve been doing all along even after being given a suggestion. They do not even consider the other option, and they blatantly continue to believe that their way is the only right way to go about doing things.

All I can say to those people is: it’s your loss. The person giving you the suggestion is actually doing you a favour by telling you what you can improve on. They could have just let you continue doing whatever you were doing, but instead they took the time to offer you a suggestion. When someone gives you a suggestion and you refuse to even consider it, you have just closed a door that could potentially improve your way of life. I believe that suggestions should be patiently listened to and thoughtfully considered.  It really isn’t that hard to do, and you’ll be glad you did it!

Loose Moose Tapas Bar & Grill

I would never have come across this hidden gem if it wasn’t for JT! The plan that Sunday was actually brunch at the Twisted Fork, however we were told that we wouldn’t be able to get a table that day, so feeling dejected, we had to find another place to eat. Thankfully JT lives in downtown Vancouver, so when we came across Loose Moose, she told us that there were always long lineups at night because everything in the restaurant was $6. You can’t really find anywhere cheaper than that in downtown Vancouver (although there is The Famous Warehouse located right around the corner where everything on the menu is only $5).

Moose burger with fries $5.95

I ordered their Moose burger. It came with a side of fries as well. The portion size was on the smaller side, but it was perfect for me as I was able to finish everything without feeling too stuffed. As for the taste, there was nothing fancy about it; tastes like your average burger off the grill. I can see why it can get very busy at night though. It seems like a good place for people to watch a game together over a couple of beers and cheap food.

The Good
– Cheap eats (everything for $6)

The Bad
– Average tasting food
– Small portions (for those who are looking to get full, one order won’t be enough)
