Weekly Photo Challenge: Depth

LSUC, Toronto. January 2015

Earlier this week, when I was working in court for a seemingly endless job where the chairman seemed to like to ask for readbacks, I snapped this photo when I was out during the morning break.  At the time of taking it, I already knew that this would be justifiable for a future WPC theme, and here it is! :)   Continue reading

OJA Restaurant, Korean and Japanese cuisine

Located at 689 Yonge St in Toronto

I’ve been to this restaurant countless times before!  This is an old favourite of mine that resides around the Yonge and Bloor intersection area.  OJA Restaurant serves a mixture of Japanese and Korean food.  I’ve been here for lunch, dinner, and also late night dinner as well.  These were the days where I used to work across the street at CCVS teaching court reporting. ^_^   Continue reading

Hana-Bi Sushi

Located at 3255 Highway 7 East, Unit 28

I’ve been to Hanabi Sushi at First Markham Place many times before.  Their sushi is fresh and their sushi rolls are well made!  It’s been a while since I had Japanese sushi so I was excited and happy to dine here.   Continue reading

Playing Omescape!

Located at 7501 Woodbine Avenue, Unit #7

Escape games are so addicting and fun!  After Rosa and Anna told us about this new escape place that was opening up in Markham and also hearing Mel talk about Omescape (located in Markham at Woodbine and Esna Park), I knew I wanted to try it out for sure.  Mel is an expert at escape games, playing one almost every weekend with her boyfriend, and highly recommended this one after hearing that I loved the high tech elements from Xscaper Arts.   Continue reading

Pho Xe Lua (Kensington Market)

Located at 254 Spadina Ave in Toronto

After we played an intense game of Trapped in a Room with a Zombie, we headed for food!  We settled on Pho Xe Lua which is a popular and almost ubiquitous restaurant chain that serves pho and Vietnamese dishes (it has that train logo).  However, although they’re very popular, I doubt that they are actually authentically Vietnamese.   Continue reading

Chi Star House

Located at 9021 Leslie Street in Richmond Hill

I’m always starving after a court reporting job, so my mom and I headed to a Hong Kong style cafe that we haven’t tried out before called Chi Star House.  It is located nearby a karaoke cafe and close to Premiere Dining & Banquet Hall.

For a restaurant that seems to exist in an area where most people have to drive to get to (by that, I mean there is no TTC), there were a lot of people here on a weekday noon time.   Continue reading

Sonoya Japanese Noodle House

Located at 3235 Hwy 7 East, Unit 22 in Markham

Mandy, Wendy, and I were due for a catch-up.  Since I am always on the hunt to try out new restaurants, I selected Sonoya Ramen House.  It is located on the outside plaza strip of First Markham Place and incidentally right beside Aka Teppan.   Continue reading
