    Ultimate Tokyo Travel & Food Guide – Part 1

    Hi everyone! I’m finally back on home soil and slowly working off that jet lag. I’ve never been more excited to come back and share everything that I’ve absorbed in Japan. I’ve decided to make my Tokyo Guide into 2 parts simply because there is just too much to share in one post. If you have any questions about anything, please do leave a comment and I’ll be sure to get back to you! Shibuya…

    Seafood Crate: Fresh Seafood Delivered To Your Door

    We all know life tends to get a little busy once summer is over. Things start to pick up again, especially in September, so I try my best to reinforce a daily routine before my work life balance gets out of hand. One of the routines include ordering from a weekly food subscription service, which encourages us to stay in and cook at home rather than spending money on dining out or ordering take out.…

    Camping at an Ontario Provincial Park: Everything you need to know

    Every August long weekend during summer holidays, we venture off as a family and explore a different Ontario Provincial Park. I always look forward to this time of the year because it’s exciting to simply sit back and relax, get away from the hustle & bustle, put the phone away and just enjoy the surroundings of nature. Because each provincial park is very different from one another, it’s also exciting to see what the campgrounds…

    Meals Made Easy at Longo’s

    Let’s face it. Most of the time we end up eating out because it’s just a much easier and convenient alternative after a long day at work.  The last thing we want to do is contemplate what to make for dinner, drive to the grocery store and roam around the supermarket looking for ALL the ingredients. That is why Longo’s is introducing a new meal-based shopping concept at Longo’s Maple Leaf Square. This new concept,…

    3 Weekday Self Care Pick-Me-Ups

    The last couple of weeks have been immensely stressful due to both work and my personal life.  I started to notice that my days and weeks were seemingly passing by in the blink of an eye and it was primarily the after hours activities and “everyday condo living responsibilities” which were consuming all my time. If and when I had time leftover, I would only then slide in some self care time for myself. I…

    Saturday mornings at Jatujak

    I can’t describe how much I love Thai food and I just love how there are so many great options for Thai in the city such as Pai, Sukho Thai, and Kiin to name a few. But sometimes great places like these in the city involve long line ups, planning ahead to try your luck at finding a reservation and let’s not forget about fighting for parking in the the hustle and bustle of our…

    7 Date Ideas You Haven’t Tried In Toronto

    A few months ago, Eden made the decision to head back to school. I knew that once it started, he would be extremely busy with attending classes, studying after hours as well additional homework on weekends, and so prior to that, I suggested that we go on a date every weekend up until school started. I began to research different activities that we could do in and out of Toronto. While there were many different…

    5 Reasons To Join A Tour With Local Toronto Food Tours

    I’ve been living in the Greater Toronto Area for the majority of my life and have spent the past 6 years specifically in the downtown Toronto core after getting a job here back in 2013.  I love spending my time after work & on weekends roaming around the many different neighbourhoods that Toronto has to offer. I would say I’m pretty familiar with the neighbourhoods in and around the city & generally have a pretty…

Search “RAKU” and select ‘Join…
