Lunch @ Northwood

Yesterday I was at the Exclaim! office helping out and for lunch I was looking for something sandwich-y. I remembered Northwood opened up close-by. I went in and asked if they served food. Although they didn’t have a formal menu yet, they gave some sandwich suggestions. I had a turkey sandwich with a mini edamame…

Crochet Dog Bone

My practise ball of white yarn never seems to disappear so I made Teddy this crochet bone with a pattern I found on Pinterest. I didn’t make it quite as long because of my dog’s small size. I added a ribbon made out of an old T-shirt to hide the seams. I think he approves.…

Crochet Short Sweater

For my first major crochet project, I made this short crop sweater sweater. The pattern came from The Happy Hooker book I mentioned earlier. Understanding how to read the pattern was a confusing at first, so the sweater is a tiny bit disfigured, but still wearable. It pairs well with a bright coloured tank top…

Fried Chicken @ The White Brick Kitchen

The White Brick Kitchen is nestled in the middle of Koreatown. It’s the perfect place to go to if you’re in the area and looking for something that is not bibimbap or pork bone soup. They serve American comfort food. The menu includes things like burgers, salads, fried chicken, mac n cheese, chilli and more.…

Frankie’s Burgers

The Curse Of The Spermagotchi

As a kid growing up in the 90s, I was really excited when the Tamagotchi L.i.f.e app came out. I had a million virtual pets when I was little including the nano sumo fighters, babies, pikachu pet and of course the original Tamagotchi. When I first got the app, I had all the notifications turned…

Tacos and Nachos @ La Burrita

La Burrita took over the spot near Christie station that used to house an Ethiopian restaurant. While it is only a block a way from our beloved Tacos El Asador, La Burrita does a more Mexican style of taco. There is even a huger variety of meat fillings you can choose from and at $2.90…

Crochet Ball

I learnt how to crochet a ball for Teddy from this Youtube Video via Crochet Geek. It wasn’t too round because I didn’t have stuffing so I used a plastic bag. It added a little extra noise for Teddy to enjoy. Balls are the basis for a lot of Amigurumi projects so I hope to…
