Teppanyaki @ Iron Chef

Last night, our family celebrated my parent’s Anniversary at Iron Chef Steakhouse in Mississauga. Dad’s always looking for a good Teppanyaki place in the suburbs so we thought we’d give them a try. As a starter, we had this sashimi platter ($7) with a selection of salmon, tuna, octopus. It was very fresh. We each…

My First Loot Crate!

I was so excited when I found out that Loot Crate started shipping to Canada that I signed up right away. It’s a monthly subscription of nerdy gifts to your doorstep. It’s $19.99 for US residence and $29.99 for Canadians. Each month the boxes have a theme. May’s theme was EQUIP. Inside the box was…

The Happiness Project

I recently read through Gretchen Rubin’s The Happiness Project and enjoyed her journey in the pursuit for happiness. The different chapters reflected the months of the years and the many challenges she added each month. I read a month a day so that I’d have time for some of it to sink in instead of…

Victoria’s Day at Ashbridges Bay

I spent Victoria’s Day at Ashbridges Bay relaxing by the beaches. We took a walk along the board-walk and visited the skate park. At night, we braved the chill to see their spectacular fireworks. My favourite part was when the many fireworks dispersed into what looked like mini stars. ashbridgesbeachcanadafireworksholidaysphotographytorontovictoria’s day

Bacon Crackers from Fita Spreadz

While I was grocery shopping with Mom at the Asian grocery store, I came across these Fita Spreadz crackers from the Philippines. These were borderline weird but as a bacon lover I just had to try them. They were individually packaged so you could have some on-the-go like the people in their commercials. They looked…
