Krispy’s Kajun Chicken located at 4997 Highway 7 in Markham

There used to be a Popeyes Chicken here where this current Krispy’s Kajun Chicken store now stands.  Ever since then, I’ve been a little curious about this fried chicken shop.  Since I had a coupon from the booklet for a buy one get one free order of two chicken pieces, we decided to eat here for lunch after a good yoga session at Moksha Yoga.   Continue reading

Blaze Pizza located at 10 Dundas St E #124 in Toronto

Blaze Pizza has numerous location franchises all over the states already and I believe this was their first location in Toronto, Canada.   Continue reading

I got another great deal for a 60-minute massage from Groupon!  (I love that site for finding new massage parlours — I only buy the ones that have high reviews though since I don’t want just any Joe Schmo practising on me..).

Weekly Photo Challenge: Cherry on Top

Funfetti Cake

Funfetti Cake, Moroco Chocolate. February 2015

Forget about just a cherry on top.  How about some cream cheese frosting on top of and between your red velvet mini cake, along with a red candy, followed by a strawberry macaron on the side AND some rainbow coloured sprinkles on top of the plate?  Extravagantly plated food dishes, especially desserts, are always eye candy to me.. get it?😛   Continue reading
