The David Duncan House

April 20, 2016

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 […]

Hotpot on Yonge

April 19, 2016

0

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 […]

Bake Code at North York

September 17, 2015

Last Tuesday, I was given a special treat of being one of the foodies to get a preview of a new bakery at North York. 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 […]

Brunching options this long weekend

September 5, 2015

0

I have always had a weakness with weekend brunches. Much more relaxed than middle of the week dinners, it tends to be more my style. If you are in a lookout for brunching options for the weekend but are not too keen about long lineups, I have suggestions where you can find the alternate or […]

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 […]

Road Grill Food Truck

May 24, 2015

When the first food trucks came into the horizon a few summers ago, I wished there would be one that would park regularly in North York. To be able to enjoy foodtruckeats before, I have to wait for a food event to happen to find them. With the changes of the rules of food trucks […]

York Farmers Market

April 4, 2015

1

For the past seven years of living at Yonge and Finch, I never stopped at York Farmers Market. I often would pass by it and I was always in a hurry to go somewhere that I clearly have taken it for granted. It is funny how I often wished there was something like York Farmers […]

Anne’s 7th Birthday at The Original Barrio Fiesta

March 15, 2015

0

This weekend was my godchild’s 7th birthday party. How time quickly pass by and the little baby that I dotted and overly photographed ever since she was born (literally when she was born, right Tere?) is now 7 and still as sweet as the first time I saw her. Just like any family fanfare her […]

Uncle Bettys

I am one of those people who still wake up early despite weekends. That doesn’t mean I stand up though. I stay burrowed until I slowly wake up which might mean anywhere from 15 minutes to about a good solid hour. Sometimes I fall back asleep. But this lazy Sunday, I somehow started contemplating about […]

Up at North York

January 18, 2015

It has been such a long time that I walked Yonge St and really look closely of what is around me. It is quite a pity that if you go to North York by subway, you don’t see what is happening on the length of the Yonge corridor. It is way much livelier than when […]
