I found myself with time to spend one afternoon in Etobicoke by Bloor and Islington.  I don’t frequent this area but I was to visit a friend and I was too early.  I opted to scout the streets and when I got my fill of old houses that would give you flashbacks of the 70s […]

Back in February, we celebrated Chinese New Year in Spring Villa.  I sadly could not blog about the experience as all the images I took were blurry.  It was rather funny trying to capture the experience when I have my favorite little girl, Andi, sitting in my lap. That taught me a lot not to […]

A few weeks ago I was invited to Maple Leaf Tavern launch party.  As most times I am in anticipation of what the restaurant would be offering for us to try.  But I was especially looking forward to the event as it was the first time that my friend and sistah-from-another-motha Catalina would be joining […]

Between her very hectic Kanto and catering schedule and me working full time, our dinners together has lately been scant.  I sent her a text and […]

Each time I look at my godchild Anne,  I still see a baby.  She is all grown up now and last weekend was her Holy Communion day. To celebrate the occasion, my friend Tere selected a restaurant that took me by surprise.  I have never come across the name but I believe locals love them […]

One of my guilty pleasures is eating hotpot style. The thing about hotpot is that it is best when it is shared with a friend. Most of them are setup AYCE and so you better come hungry. There is one that is close to me, HotPot on Yonge and I enjoyed a meal there one […]
