Driftwood Chinese Buffet, Nanaimo

Last week when we were going to the movies, we decided to try this new restaurant. Only a few months old by the way. We found the food to be really good and fresh so yesterday, we all went for the Lunch Buffet.

The restaurant is very large and it was full. The food is not deep fried food that the other Chinese restaurants seem to prefer, but it is all fresh and darn tasty. We arrived about halfway through the time (11:30 a.m. to @2 p.m). and the bowls were almost all empty.

We have found that this restaurant is the very best for Chinese Food in Nanaimo and trust me, we have tried them all. The seafood is cooked to perfection, just to mention one of their best assets.

Our best advice….go early and dine on all they have to offer. I promise you will return again and again. They also have a Dinner Buffet, if that is what you prefer.

The restaurant is next door to Montana’s

A Man Called Otto, The Movie

I have to start by saying Mr. Hanks, although a super actor, has not been a favourite of mine UNTIL NOW. I am sure that 50 plus years from now, this will be the movie most revered and remembered as his best.

The movie has so many truths in it it and some pretty good laughs. Tom Hanks draws you into this movie and, to be honest, you don’t want to leave it. I would go again to watch this movie.

I rarely go out and voice opinions on movies but, please, run – don’t walk to the theatre to watch this. His wife in real life, Rita Wilson, did a smash up job on this as the movie director and it is a real winner.

Again, run to the theatre…… oh,  be sure to buy the popcorn and be sure to ask for the butter to be ‘layerd’. YUM!
