After so many years living in Toronto, can you believe this was my very first time being in Montreal?!  First thing I noticed when started entering the area, everything is in French (no surprise), the roads, traffic lights, buildings, even the parking meters are different, very interesting!!  I just couldn’t resist to start off doing one of my favorites, “shopping”, spent quite a long time hanging out downtown checking out those unique shops.  As I was also told, food taste a lot better no matter which restaurant I go in, went in a few random restaurants/cafes, of course I have proven it is not a myth at all and the price is very inexpensive as well.

Overall, I love Montreal, nothing is alike Toronto, feels like there is life in every corners, not to mention you can get Alcohol anywhere including gas station hehe.  I really don’t mind going back there for more visits but the long driving hours…  Might try flying or taking the train next time, could also be fun 🙂

AUTOSHOW 2015 (Family Day)

You know, it has been a LONG while since my last AUTOSHOW visit and I can’t even remember when it was really…  Luckily, I got a free pass to the show so I figured why not spend a day there while everywhere was closed that day 😛   It has gotten a lot bigger than what I remembered, lot more cars and a hell lot more people for sure.  I love cars but I am only interested to see the ones that I can afford, unlike some people, dying to see those out of this world kind of cars.  It is also a perfect place to take pictures of my favorites but I found a few weird moments that I didn’t really understand at the show, anyways, here they are 🙂

Will I go again next year?  Probably not, I will wait for another 10 years maybe 😉

Dominican Republic – La Romana

It was a perfect time to get away from this freezing cold weather for a week.  Another amazing vacation in the Caribbean area, Dominican Republic – La Romana, where there is only sunshine and beautiful beaches.  My flight was in the afternoon, after 4 hrs flight and 1.5 hrs bus ride, as expected, it was almost midnight when I arrived at the resort Luxury Bahia Principe Bouganville (5 stars).  The whole week was a semi cloudy but warm, the resort is as beautiful as what I saw on the internet, the water at the beach was kind of cold the first couple of days since there wasn’t much sun but I loved the pool so much that I spent most of the time there anyways 😛

A few thoughts about this resort tho

Things I found good
– great looks and view everywhere, especially the pools, umm that’s about it

Things I found bad
– flies every where (restaurants, the pools the beach etc.)
– crawling bugs indoor (especially on a table cloth in our room)
– beach is bad, water not even clear, tons of rocks in the deeper area
– poor service bartenders at the main lobby (took your order and went off serving others, then let me stand there for over 15mins…)
– leaks in the shower (by the time you are done, its wet everywhere outside the shower…)
– shows were cheesy, could get better ones in other way cheaper resorts
– most excursions are far, as in over 2 hrs of transportation…
– worse of all, we had to fight for a late check out because we had a very late flight back to Toronto, asked many times, the answer we got was “come back on the morning of check out, we would let you know…” They should have known the answer on the day we arrived because no one would walk in to the resort and make reservation last min. All we got was 3 hrs delay from the normal time 12pm

also a few people that we talked to, told us they got very sick (throwing up, diarrhea and etc.) luckily we didn’t 🙂 Don’t understand why people would rate this so high, anyways, that’s what we experienced 🙂

lesson learned, 1, never take a late flight to this resort because they will make you check out early, then you will have to use their courtesy room to take a shower which has a lonnnnngg wait time (we saw it with our own eyes when we passed by it, plus we talked to some other customers on the way back) 2, never book a resort just by looking at the pretty pictures, yes, the place looks super nice and what else?!?

Anyways, the whole trip was still very relaxing, I love taking beautify pictures as always, so here are some of the highlights!!

Tons more pictures on my facebook, enjoy 🙂

Southern Caribbean – St. Maarten, St. Kitts, Antigua, St. Lucia and Barbados

My first time on a cruise Caribbean Cruise Experience (Oasis of the Seas), my second time cruising Royal Princess (East Caribbean Cruise) and onto my third cruise this time with my favorite “Royal Caribbean International” to the southern Caribbean on the Jewel of the Seas.  Man, it was hot hot hot, I got sick on the third day probably because of the hot and humid weather, good thing all I had was cough, nothing serious 😛  This time was a little different from the other ones I had, we board at San Juan Purto Rico other than Ft. Lauderdale and it has 5 itinerary ports, St. Maarten, St. Kitts, Antigua, St. Lucia and Barbados and only 1 day cruising on ship.  Luckily, we had 6 sunny days, only one rainy day, lots of walking and sun tanning 🙂

Really glad that I went with Royal Caribbean International again this time because compare to Princess (the one I went last year), the activities and age groups are way way better.  Tons of things and shows that fit my age, not as many older generations with walkers and scooters around, more than half of the people are actually my age or even younger, the whole ship was ALIVE!!!

Since I have cruised 3 times already, there are a few things I have learned, 1, as far as I know, for my age, Royal is definitely the company to go for, 2, don’t bring too many socks, 3, never believe the elevators signs that said MAX 20 persons because most people on the ship are 3 times of a normal person 😛

of course there are more pictures on my facebook 🙂
