楓林閣海鮮酒家 (Fung Lam Court Chinese Restaurant)

It’s the time of the year to have a birthday celebration dinner with Cheryl, 楓林閣海鮮酒家 (Fung Lam Court Chinese Restaurant) on Kennedy and Denison st.  It had been a long time since me and my friends had a gathering so I was super excited to see them and looking forward to try this place out 🙂  東瓜盅 was the main reason why we chose the place, but I was also told that they had a lot of featured dishes as well, don’t really know the names of them in English but just take a look at the pictures below for reference.  Very typical Chinese restaurant, the 東瓜盅 was pretty unique, had a lot of different stuffs in it (shrimp, pork etc.) all the other dishes we ordered tasted not bad, not really over the top, well, considered the price is very inexpensive you know 😛 but I would still recommend this to friends or to my aunties for big gatherings 😛

0109 Dessert & Chocolate

0109 Dessert & Chocolate, not too often that you find a dessert place which is in a Chinese community, mostly because we Asians don’t like sweets. Luckily enough we picked out this place and it turned out pretty good, most dessert are not too sweet like some restaurants, their stuffs are pretty light in a good way, thumbs up! I would definitely go back just because of their cream brulee but beware because you probably need to make a reservation ahead of time because the place is packed with people unless you go early.

ZAKKUSHI (Japanese Yakitori Izakaya)

It’s that time of year again, To celebrate Karen birthday, we picked ZAKKUSHI a Japanese izakaya located in downtown Toronto. I actually passed by this place a few times and never knew this place is actually quite nice and spacious. The atmosphere is bascially like the other izakaya, once you go in they would greet you loudly and food are mostly BBQ stuffs. In my opinion, food is not the greatest compare to some others but still a very good place to try, as long as the fun factor is there, everything should be good B-) We did make a reservation because we had quite a lot of people but even if you have only a couple, I think you should make one too because this place is also very packed most of the time.

Canada Day long weekend BBQ 2012

We were so graceful that we had a super nice weather over the whole long weekend, perfect for the event that we had been waiting for, Canada Day long weekend BBQ tradition at Cheryl’s house.  Tons of people, tons of food and of course, TONS of fun 😀  Something was totally different this year because in previous years, we had Cheryl, her mom and some other people preparing food but this time, only our master chef Macy prepared the amazing good food.  Of course the outcome of the night was a success as expected, thanks Cheryl, Auntie, Uncle and Macy putting the party together for us 😀

As always, go to my facebook gallery to check out more pictures of the event here http://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.10151070615160211.485245.689775210&type=1&l=40d90a17b5

草蜢華麗舞台演唱會 (Grasshopper’s glamour on stage)

The concert we were waiting for was finally here, 草蜢華麗舞台演唱會 (Grasshopper’s glamour on stage) located at Ricoh Coliseum and soo many friends were there too 😀  They started with slow songs then slowly moved into fast songs, at the half way point, the whole concert was already turned into a dance party and most people were on their feet dancing even the older people too, haha :p  Overall, it was a very funny and excited concert with a lot of old time favorites.  Too bad there was no encore at the end and because of that, after the concert was finished, we headed to Karaoke, since a few of us expected to have a late night concert and took the day off work the next day :p
