I’ve been really tired lately, guys…usually my posts aren’t so spaced out! Usually when I’m tired, really all I can think about is food. I don’t know why I secretly deceive myself that I love vegetables (l LIKE them enough,) but I can never seem to escape my meat and carb diet. It’s not intentional, I swear! A few weeks ago I visited The Yale Saloon. I know for myself, I would probably never organize a BBQ or whatever- too much work and too much mess. But going to a restaurant that specializes in BBQ meats..I’ll take that option any day. #LazyFoodie.
Hi! Sorry took a two day break – going to work – > gym lately and haven’t kept up on here!
Cherry blossoms are almost gone, but you can still get your sakura fix at The Urban Tea Merchant with their Sakura Tea Set along with TWG Tea Sakura! Sakura! Tea. A few weeks ago, I was invited to preview and sample their Sakura Tea Set. Their spring tea service is one of my personal favourite since they always bring some Japanese flair to their dishes. Japan is on my travel bucket list and I can’t WAIT to go there one day to see their cherry blossom trees and spend all my money on unnecessary but necessary anime related things!!
Finally- the long awaited travel post on my Toronto trip! I haven’t been on an non-Asia trip and Toronto was a new experience even though I came here more than ten years ago. Before flying, I made a schedule and put stars on my Google Maps so I knew what to do and where to go and seriously guys, I’m soooo organized *humble smile.* Also kind of glad to do a non beauty and non fashion related post this time- just me blabbing on and throwing in a bunch of food pictures.
I love the convenience of a dessert place. A new-ish Menchie’s opened up a few blocks from where I live, plus there was one at UBC too (currently there are 106 locations within Canada!) I also love winning free stuff; we all do right?! (I just won a free copy of Lady Midnight by Cassandra Clare a few weeks ago and I was jumping up and down.) Menchie’s Canada is currently hosting a digital Scratch & Win contest until May 15, 2016. The best part is; no purchase is necessary and you can enter via mobile or your computers. You can win instant prizes and even more exciting- 7 night round trip for 2 to the 5-star Dreams Riviera Cancun Resort & Spa in the Mayan Riviera (ARV $5,000). You can see the full details here.
Happy Chinese New Year!! Whether I’m at home blogging or behind my screen at work, snacking is a habit I thoroughly enjoy. (Especially during Chinese New Year, I’ve been snacking on those sweet rice cakes morning, afternoon, and night.) Coconut is a flavour I enjoy in Chinese desserts as well as in ice cream. I was sent four bags of Prana Organic Dry Roasted Coconut Chips and I was excited to do some healthy snacking.
