Two weeks ago, I was given a VIP treatment at Novotel Vaughan as they invited me to join their celebration of being 5 years in the city of Vaughan.  Strategically located behind the massive Vaughan Mills and close to Canada’s Wonderland, I have always passed by this hotel never knowing that there was a very […]

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 […]

Fritzie is one of my friends who I gotten to know more of when she left Taro Pharmaceuticals,  the company I presently work for. I know that sounds funny but we sort of talked more when she left the company.  I guess my previous experience with GSK taught me that friendships are valuable if they […]

A Taiwanese import, Bake Code, officially opened north of Yonge and Sheppard this Thursday. Best known for their high quality breads, they introduce a new Asian-European flair, putting together what […]

Mostly I have a one track mind when it comes to a Japanese restaurant. I still go to my favourite one that is in Scarborough, Super Sushi that I have discovered when I came to Canada 15 years ago. But when I moved to North York, I often only get it when I visit my […]

Last year, I came across the Ontario Latin Arts Festival by accident and just enjoyed its tail end. Back then I promised that I would come back this year to witness it all and I would bring with me a dance partner. All that Latin music was too intoxicating to just listen sitting down. One […]

As I was on my way home today, the rain was beating down my car. Stuck in traffic, I started drifting back to old memories from childhood of walking in the rain. When the rain falls hard back in Manila enough to cancel school, my friends and I would be strolling amidst the rain, celebrating […]
