We were treated to a yummy lunch, sponsored by the McJac’s Roadhouse Grille in White Rock. Luckily, we could relax outside the Planetarium and enjoy an early-October sunny day. We came back to a screening of Mina Shum’s Hip Hop Mom short film and were treated to a peek of Nicole Bridger’s Fall 2012 collection.
