Chef Yan

March 27, 2013


I found myself in Pickering last night.   My sister, Ayen, asked me to drive her there to do an errand. One thing I could never resist on doing while in Pickering was swing by Chef Yan’s Chinese Food.  I discovered this take-out Chinese joint years ago when I used to visit Pickering twice a […]

Algonquin 2012

September 24, 2012


What has always been a start to my autumn was my trek towards Algonquin Park.  I don’t think I would ever get tired of seeing all the possible tones of red in such a wide expanse.  Each time I come near it, I feel like I am home.  For seven years now, my friends and […]

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 […]

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 […]
