A day at Nara Park

Not sure where in Toronto you can come super close or even feed a deer with absolutely no supervision but this totally happened when we were exploring one of the million things you can do in Japan. Spending the day at Nara Park was absolutely amazing and something we’ll probably not be able to do (at least as freely) unless…

Bar Altura: New Restaurant over on Queen West

Queen West’s latest Italian addition has definitely made quite the impression with its  beautifully plated dishes and clean & modern look. While I am normally more focused on the food, I couldn’t help but notice the aesthetics at Bar Altura’s  – which created a nice stand out & sophisticated look compared to its fellow neighbours on  Queen West. Several weeks…

Saturday mornings at REDS (Square One)

As I’m sitting at my desk drafting this post, I’ve realized in a blink of an eye, come September is my 5 years working downtown Toronto. Time seriously flies. One of the restaurants that I frequent after work in the downtown core is REDS Wine Tavern inside First Canadian Place (due to its convenient location). While I can totally rave about…

My evening self care routine

How many of you feel like there’s never enough time in a day to finish all the items on your never ending to do list? How many of you cram as many things as you can as soon as you can from the second you get off work right until you turn off the lights for bed? I am guilty…

Eating our way through Dotonburi

I was able to cross off many things on my bucket list during this trip to Japan and one of the items was eating my heart out at Dotonburi in Osaka, Japan. E and I spent a good afternoon here eating and wandering in and out of the streets until our tummies couldn’t handle it anymore! Dotonburi is a very…

Its on at Ontario Place!

I can’t remember the last time I’ve visited Ontario Place but its definitely been over 15 years! The fondest memory I have of Ontario Place is visiting the park during Chinese New Year with all my cousins when we were very little – running around the entire park with our moms were chasing after us! I remember how fascinated we…

I’ll admit that when I was first doing research to change the domain name on my blog, I found myself reading and re-reading articles multiple times and getting nowhere. We composed a list of things to consider along with some tips that…

Going Organic for our first Barbecue of the year

For the past few weeks, I’ve been anxiously waiting for the cold to go away so that I can switch up my winter closet for my spring, hit up as many roof top patios as I can, stroll along the sunny waterfront whilst getting tanned (if getting tanned for me is actually possible), happily window shop along Queen West –…
