New Laptop Case

I bought this cute pink felt laptop case from Amazon. Ever since I went to the Pin + Patch show, I wanted something to pin. So I think this is perfect and also functional!


Bandit Brewery

I went to Bandit Brewery recently for a flight of beers and some snacks. The place has a raccoon theme so all their glasses have faces and you can even buy fun posters of the beer labels in their Bottle Shop.

I had a flight of four beers: I had the Citra, Hoppelganger, Mr. Pink and Dundas West IPA. They serve it in the order that they recommend you drink them. My favourite was Mr. Pink, a flavourful hibiscus and ginger pale ale.

It was around lunch time, so I had a few snacks: Fresh Cut Russets and Beer Battered cheese curds.

The cheese curds with homemade ranch dressing were to die for and the perfect beer snack. The fries were covered in parmesan and a served with a lovely garlic mayo.

I loved the concept of this brewery and they even have funny identifications of their patrons!

Chefs Plate: Cajun Tilapia

Tonight’s Chef’s Plate meal was a Cajun Tilapia served with quinoa, kale, tomatoes and corn.

It was easy to make and had a lot of seasonal ingredients. Everything tasted as colourful as it looked. This was such a perfect summer dish.

Chefs Plate: Indian-Style Saag

This week I have two more meals from Chefs Plate. Tonight I made an Indian-style Saag. It was the first time doing something vegetarian from the boxes and I was afraid that it might not be enough food for us hungry pigs.

Anyways, the meal was relatively easy and I was cooked it in around 20 minutes. Weirdly the ingredients list had a pack of vegetable stock reduction, but I received an extra pack of masala spice mix instead. The result was still flavourful and tasty despite the missing vegetable stock.

Influenster: Saint and Sinner Perfume from Kat Von D

I don’t really wear perfume, but I received these cute Kat Von D potion bottles of perfume from Influenster.

The Saint (white bottle) is flowery with jasmine and hints of mandarin, vanilla and a wood tone.

Sinner is noticeably “darker” containing cinnamon, vetiver, patchouli and wood.

Personally, I preferred the Saint perfume but I gave both to a friend who would appreciate the scents.

Went to a Pin + Patch Show

Got some on brand pins

A post shared by Tiana Feng (@tianafeng) on

Yesterday I attended the inaugural Pin & Patch Show. My friends and I arrived more than half an hour before doors but there were already 100 people ahead of us. The event took place at the former storefront for Magic Pony.

There were a lot of vendors and a huge turnout. I grabbed an adorable Pocky pin from Queenie’s Cards and a Gameboy pin from Pete Ellison. I had taken the last one they had (the display) so it was without packaging!

I need some ideas of things to pin that I can regularly show off. I don’t really have a jean jacket and a cork board is not optimal for showing it off. What do you pin?

Ajuker Chicken

A lot of Korean restaurants look the same near Christie but Ajuker Chicken, specializes in chicken dishes, especially fried. However, I had a lot of fried food for lunch so I wanted to try their healing ginseng chicken soup. The broth was relatively thin, but flavourful and comforting. The bird was stuff with rice, ginseng, dates and garlic.

My friend had a spicy chicken and rice dish with vegetables. It was generously seasoned and did not hold on the spice.

Like many traditional meals, we were served side dishes including bean sprouts, sea weed salad, kimchi and salted beans. We quite liked our food and next time will try the fried chicken!

Influenster: Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche Liquified Lipstick

I was so excited to receive a few samples of Bite Beauty’s Amuse Bouche Liquid Lipsticks from Influenster. It also came with a lip primer.

Of the 3 colours, I have tested two so far.

They are pigmented and go on the exact shade it looks like in the bottle. Often when I buy lipsticks, it comes out more red than I hoped (based on my natural lip colour). It glided on creamy, and I didn’t need more than one swipe.

I love that they are matte, but at the same time don’t look dry on my lips. This is probably my favourite Influenster box so far as I’ll use the heck out of them.

You should join Influenster too to take part in free samples!

What I ate at River & Sky #tianaeatsfestivals

River & Sky had a few vendors to keep us alive all weekend. The first place I visted was a vegetarian taco place called Tucos. I ordered a “phish” taco which was beer battered avocado, cabbage, cilantro and crema.

They also had this healthy juice made from orange, carrot, melon, pineapple, rhubarb, lemon, ginger and apple.

Club Fisher served up fire oven pizzas. This pepperoni and cheese pizza was thin and cheesily delicious.

Doggin’ served up the most delicious dry rub ribs that were cooked for hours.

They also had locally made sausages that were quick and delicious. I can’t help but add all the fixings on top.

Lastly, I couldn’t resist getting an ice cream sandwich from Sharquhar’s, a stand that also had a roaming bicycle selling the ice cream throughout the festival.
