To celebrate Shu’s birthday early, we decided it to try something a little different. With a total of 14 people Cheryl found us a private kitchen (私房菜), White Orchid – SouthEast Asian Cuisine (蘭花軒) located on 360 Highway 7 east., unit 5, Richmond Hill. Causal lunch by day and fine dining/causal by night, this is really a unique place. Price wise is not that bad to start with, just take a look at the pictures of all the dishes we ordered below, each of us had to pay $40, not bad 🙂 Food was great, it’s a little different from a lot of other Chinese restaurants because of it’s kind and style. A must try if you are in Richmond Hill, one thing I should mention tho, the place is tiny, if you want a big dinner with friends, you better call to make a reservation hehe

Another fantastic find in downtown, Millie Creperie, located in Kensington Market area, 161 Baldwin Street (on the other side of Spadina Ave. – even if you are familiar with the area, you might still not notice about this place), a tiny little store that has amazingly good tasting Japanese dessert. A place soo small that they only have a few seats inside, not a lot of varieties but the smell of crepe just makes you want to stay for a bit longer, I say definitely a place to stop by if you are in the area. Think about a simple Green Tea Parfait made me wish they were in uptown so I could taste their ice-cream everyday 😛 One thing you keep in mind tho, they close at 8:30, so now you know why I wished it was in uptown? hehe

Happy Birthday to You
Happy Birthday to You
Happy Birthday Dear Marcus
Happy Birthday to You.
Time flies lightning fast, Marcus is already 7 years old. It was another big party at the grand parents house where could hold tons of people and balloons 😛 Not only that Marcus is getting bigger, so was the ice-cream cake which could easily feed 20+ people and the gifts of course, hehe. It really was a day for the kids, they were mostly running around, yelling and screaming, not a good scene when you are not used to being around kids (talking to myself here…). The party was supercharged with happiness and energy, our takeout food tasted even better because of that too (it’s true, hehe). Oh oh, and we were so happy to see Cindy and her little baby girl as well, yay 何P!

Oh my god, did anyone know about this place, I was told it has been around for a long while and I didn’t even know it…? A small unique Korean restaurant located in First Markham place, a very large varieties of Tofu soup dishes to choose from. Personally, I don’t eat tofu very often but a bowl of tofu in spicy meat soup along with a bowl of stone pot rice completely changed the way I look at tofu. Umm well, I eat anything spicy LOL. This is just perfect for the cold weather, everything there would warm your stomach and body 🙂 One more thing tho, it has a very typical problem most Korean restaurant has, very slow service, so just beware 🙂

As you all know, we would put together small gatherings from time to time, our friend Cheryl came up with an events, a SAKE + hotpot gathering. The highlight of the night was our SAKE which costs around $150, and of course we had to have something to eat, so she decided to put together a hotpot dinner as well, a very special sukiyaki hotpot 🙂 Of course food tasted amazingly good, so was the SAKE 😉 Didn’t really take a lot of pictures because I was too busy eating, hehe. Sadly for our host, the smell of our hotpots was everywhere, guess she had to sleep with the smell for a few days 😛 but it was a true blessing to see some of our friends we hadn’t seen for a while, great catching up and all, yay!!! Now it’s time to plan for our next gathering, should be huge because X’mas is coming up 😛
P.S. To host something like this takes hours of preparation, not to mention Cheryl had to go to 4 different supermarkets to get all the food too. So big thank you 🙂
