Canada Trip '12

This summer I went to Canada for my cousin's wedding.  I took way more pictures of food than I realized haha:

Surprise birthday party for my aunt!

Preparing the food

Sago - similar to bubble tea

I've never seen this much mini ensemadas together!

The kids, well one of them, blowing the candles for my aunt

The bigger kids playing drinking games, can you guess which game?

Flip cup

I still wonder who put a cupcake in the red Solo cup...

Looking at my crepe being made at Toronto Eaton Centre 

Crepe De Licious

Veggie-Licious Crepe

Saw this place in Downtown Toronto

Tim Hortons, a must have when you're in Canada!  

At The Grand Hotel

Second Cup

Toronto Blue Jays game, followed by dinner at Gabby's

I think all the McDonald's I saw in Canada were renovated.
I had to take a picture of this chimney, so not used to seeing
one in a McDonald's!

I just had to be a tourist by taking a pic of the French words haha

My cousin's wedding reception took place at The Berkeley

Newspaper articles about this place

Ingredients

My Traditional Veggie Poutine- made w/ hand cut
 seasoned fries, rich brown gravy, and Quebec cheese curds

Nice little place!

After midnight we were heading back to my cousin's car.  On our way, we ran into her brother.  He wanted to come home with us, but had to eat first.  I was kind of reluctant to go to another restaurant because I knew I'd eat again.  Also, I didn't want to eat because it was so late!  We later ended up at Perfect Chinese Restaurant.  I saw a lot of mixed reviews on Urbanspoon, as for my experience, I loved the place!

I think this was the best fried calamari I ever had, it was indeed perfect!

Dim sum

Congee- this rice porridge was addicting!!
Perfect is officially a restaurant I always have to go to whenever I'm in Toronto!

Perfect Chinese Restaurant on Urbanspoon

The next day one of my cousins went to Lick's for breakfast.
I couldn't eat breakfast here it was too early to eat a hamburger!

All the cousins getting hot dogs in Downtown Toronto

A lot of condiments!

Mine!  I had a chicken hot dog, didn't notice a
big difference b/w this and a beef hot dog...

My last day in Canada, had to get something
from Tim Hortons!

Ketchup chips, only in Canada

Desserts for the family gathering from Lisboa Bakery & Grillhouse

I had Chick-fil-A Nuggets at the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky Int'l Airport.
Since there's no location here in Las Vegas, I had to try it.  It was pretty tasty!

Stockholm Trip '17

Over a month ago, my husband and I embarked on our first trip to Europe!!! We were there for a couple weeks and spent our time exploring the capital cities of Norway, Denmark, and Sweden.  The two things I found most captivating was the art, especially the architecture, and the food!  Our trip started in Oslo, Norway and Copenhagen, Denmark (check out the links at the end of the post for more details) and ended our Euro trip in Stockholm, Sweden: AB CafĂ© Never in my whole life did I eat pastries and drink coffee every morning until I arrived in Europe! A lot of pastries I had were hearty which left me wanting to have at least one daily.  In the neighborhood near where we were staying at was  AB CafĂ© .  This is a small, cozy cafe where you can have a small bite to eat and drink before you start your day.  Pictured below is their Key Lime Sandwich, latte, and a bullar (sweet bun).  It was a nice fika !

Birthday Month!

For my 30th birthday, I decided to celebrate it for the entire month of November.   Since I've reached this milestone in my life, why not spread out the celebration?  Here are highlights of my birthday month: Cake, Cake, Cake My coworker got me this lovely Guava Cake from Andrea's World of Cakes , thank you Fran! Hawaii Trip '16 My family and I were in Hawaii for a bit.  Being there for my birthday was not the primary reason though :p We had this 'ono (delicious) and authentic Hawaiian meal from Waiahole Poi Factory : Don't forget the chili water and Shoyu! There's been many poke bowl shops poppin' up in Vegas.  But none yet that I've been to can beat the OG poke bowls from Hawaii!  Pictured here are poke bowls with simply marinated raw fish and rice.  We also had some sashimi and musubis from Foodland Farms : Li Hing Mui Frost from Frostcity :                   These huge Banana Mac Nut Pancakes with Coco
