St. Jacob’s Market

May 21, 2012


Starting out early Saturday morning, I was amazed about how I have forgotten the charm of the sleepiness of Toronto at that time of the morning.  It was a quick drive to pick up my friend Valerie.  We were on our way to St. Jacob’s Market at Kitchener and Waterloo.  About 12o kms away from […]

My Chicago deep dish pizza experience

February 25, 2012


One of the things I have significantly decreased with my change of professions are my travels out of Canada.  Whenever I get a reason to travel within reasonable cost, I pounce on it with an enthusiasm of a kid inside a candy store.  This past long weekend was Ontario’s Family day weekend.  When my good […]

Noel Nosh at Ottawa St. Farmers’ Market

December 10, 2011


Recently, I have my earliest Christmas gift. I found myself a part-time teaching job that would afford me to stay longer in my pursuit of food photography. The gig would start by January of the coming new year and that leaves me with under a month of freedom to be the master of my own […]

New York City Whirlwind Foodie Weekend

November 11, 2011


Still trying to keep up with my little sister, Ishy, I spent the past weekend in New York City. Arriving on a Greyhound early Saturday morning, I had a hidden motive to pepper the weekend with foodie stops. I was planning to grab myself two Metro day passes for Saturday and Sunday. I find out […]

Niagara Food Trippin’ with Ishy

November 3, 2011


It’s always a given for any visiting family of mine to ask for a trip to Niagara Falls.  My lil sis Ishy is no exception, wanting to do almost all the Niagara tourist attractions that she could find.  One day was not enough to fit all she wanted to do.  The first time, we managed […]

Foodstock 2011

October 16, 2011


I almost did not make it to this event.  Riddled with a schedule change, a printer beeping communication error messages, a GPS not being able to find the intersection where the event will happen, an iPhone with an erratic, weak signal and looming gray clouds, it’s a wonder that I am writing this post.  I […]

My Muskoka Weekend and Henrietta’s Bakery

September 26, 2011


If there is one thing that I cannot do without throughout the year, it is my yearly trips to Algonquin park at the height of the fall colors.  My friends and  I normally spend three days and two nights at Logging Chain Lodge, where we enjoy all the comforts of home.  The weekend involved photography […]

Montreal Poutine

August 4, 2011


When in Montreal, what does a potato lover do?  Eat poutine of course!  May I remind you just how much I love tubers.  Please click link to see how much potato love I have :D Tired and famished after half a day of doing whirlwind touristy thingies in Montreal, we wandered off the beaten path […]

Cherry Picking at Cherry Avenue Farms

August 4, 2011


So what do you do when the cousin that is visiting you have been here a couple of times?  Everyone says that the third time is the charm.  Does that mean I have to top the previous two visits?  We have done all the obvious Toronto draws (CN Tower, trip to Niagara Falls, etc, etc).  […]

Pumpkin Farm Road trip

October 18, 2010


Every year my sister and I invite friends and family to her house and we collectively carve pumpkins.  We give the pumpkins and by the end of the get-together, we take photos of the pumpkins together with who had carved it.  It’s all in great fun and company.  This year we scheduled it for next […]
