Fenghuang County, China. September 2017
On the second day of our trip to Zhangjaijie in Hunan, China in the late summer of 2017, we visited the Fenghuang County at night to see the beautiful ancient city and town. The entire street and river were donned with beautiful classic lights. Although everything was so beautiful and lit (and I won’t share those photos until I blog about it), this picture stands out in terms of the glow that was emitted from all the lights and light fixtures.
I took this photo of the lampposts as we walked back to the hotel alongside the Continue reading
Crispy Fish & Sauce Gribiche with Parmesan Green Beans and Baby Potatoes
October 16, 2017. Yay, Chefs Plate! I really adore this cooking service and am happy to be cooking with them once more!
This is my 17th plate from the meal subscription service (you can pause your plan at any time if you want) where you pick from a pre-made menu of a variety of dishes and they deliver the fresh ingredients to your door. Every week is a different menu. It’s very easy (for the most part) to cook these meals. Everything is pre-measured and packaged together for Continue reading

Dear & Fro located at 3300 Midland Ave, Unit 39 in Scarborough
October 15, 2017: Yesterday, I went to the newly opened Dear & Fro, a dessert spot at Midland and Finch in Scarborough that serves up the Korean inspired bingsu, a shaved ice dessert with freshly cut fruits, flavoured syrup, and ice cream. They just opened on October 10, 2017. Sweven Media provided me with two dessert vouchers for me to go on my Continue reading

Bymark located at 66 Wellington St W in Toronto
For my birthday lunch, Ken took me to Bymark for a lunch getaway. I’ve been to Bymark previously before (for Summerlicious 2013 where Daphne and I had a memorable dinner experience — you can read about it on that blog post here).
This was my first time returning back for a meal. We received a selection of bread from a bread basket that the server was handling out and served Continue reading

The Owl of Minvera located at 4733 Steeles Ave E #2 in Scarborough
October 14, 2017: Last night, Daphne and I had a dinner after her church service. We went to The Owl of Minerva at Steeles and Silver Star in Scarborough. This was the third Owl Korean restaurant I’ve been to!
It was very bright, clean, and spacious inside this branch. If I’m not mistaken, this unit used to be a Japanese restaurant very early in the 2000s (don’t I sound old hahaha Continue reading
