Celebrating Karen’s Bday early @ TOMO SUSHI Japanese Restaurant

It has been kind of a tradition that me and my friends would treat the birthday person a nice meal and to celebrate Karen’s up coming birthday, we picked TOMO SUSHI.  The last time I was there was with my Aunties http://www.karlng.com/blog/?p=5522 and with 10 people this time we could order a whole lot more 😛  As usual, I always enjoy the moments with my friends no matter what we do and having nice dinners with them would just step a notch up 😛  From what I remembered from my last experience was that their food was really good and the presentation of food was quite amazing and over the years I have learned food presentation would definitely make food taste a lot better and ummm, just compare the pictures I took from months ago http://www.karlng.com/blog/?p=5522 and below… noticed anything different?  Food was still great… if I closed my eyes if you know what I mean…  Anyways, it was still super fun hanging out with friends and of course, wishing Karen a super happy birthday this coming Friday 😀

Not sure if I want to dine in there again… but take out is still good tho 😛

House Warming Party finally :-P

Thanks Ruby and Jason for this amazing house warming party.  Really didn’t expect Ruby could actually cook, hahaha and I did offer to help out and she still insisted to do everything by herself, so I assumed she is slowly turning into a house wife now?  Hehehe  Anyways, enough with the teasing part, everything tasted really good, I bet everyone was surprised, especially those fishie dishes she made. I hope we can have more gatherings like this in the coming future because it is not easy to find a place to hang out with no kids around nowadays 😛 Again, huge thanks to Ruby and Jason, I think you guys achieved your goal that night because it was a 100% success and congratulations on having your first home together 🙂

New Year’s Eve 2012 recap

The New years Eve 2012 was not as exciting as the previous years but we had tons of fun because we could celebrate it with some of our best friends together 😀  We didn’t really have any plans for the day and we kind of made our last minute decision after our lunch.  Went to Costco and grabbed all the food we needed, then to Baskin Robins to get our dessert, that’s about it 😀  Really didn’t expect Grace would lose her voice because she was perfectly fine the day before, we really thought we would lose some fun if she couldn’t talk but instead, it was even more funny 😛

and here is a video of Grace that night, super funny :p

Anyways, a year had past, a New year has come, so what’s your New Year’s resolution?

Christmas Day Hotpot 2012!!!

On this Christmas Day, we decided to have our biggest hotpot dinner we had ever had in 2012 at Karen’s house.  Karen and Grace had to bring the kids to see Disney on ice in downtown, so me and Simon along with others had to get this hotpot dinner ready in the afternoon.  There were a few things that we never had in our hotpots home style, like the chicken wings end (雞翼尖), Hong Kong Style fish balls (彈牙街邊魚蛋) and a few misc. things 😀  We had a great time of course, but I think the happiest person of the night was Marcus, because he got to open all the gifts at the end of the night, hehe.

Unfortunately, Marcus got a very bad paper cut opening the gifts at the end of the night…  hope his finger will be ok soon 😛  Anyhow, happy holidays to everyone, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!!

Niagara Falls Weekend 2012

We planned going to this event for sometime because of the 30th Annual CAA opening ceremonies with Disney Winter Festival of Lights at Niagara Falls Ontario.  It was cold and rainy all day Friday but our trip still went on no matter what :p

After our breakfast and 1.5 hrs of driving, we arrived at our first stop, Niagara Parks – Butterfly Conservatory.  Most people know that I hate anything with more than 4 legs, but because I had never been there, I had to take a look inside…  When we first got in, I almost freaked out, seriously…  It was a glass house full of butterflies flying around, so many kinds and different sizes, the biggest one was as big as my hand…  Well, after a few minutes of walking around, it wasn’t as bad as I expected BUT I still can’t stand the fact that sometimes those butterflies would land on your head, arms, legs, etc. …  Anyways, it was a good experience for all of us for sure, it was probably a fairy land for most people but for someone that hate anything with more than 4 legs, umm, I don’t think I will go back :-p

We stayed at Embassy Suite, one of the tallest hotel in Niagara Falls with Falls view, really not bad if you are not afraid of heights :-p  Our dinner was on the 9th floor at the Keg, which also had an amazing view of the falls and food was very good as well.  We were expecting the Grace family to arrive at around 9 but instead, they arrived at  10ish…  Anyways, didn’t really do much that night, went to the bar downstairs with Simon Lam and went to bed after :-p

On to the next day, after having our breakfast at Canada one Factory Outlets, of course shopping time for me, yay!  Didn’t really buy much but we did spend a long time there tho :-p  SkyWheel for Marcus next and we killed sometime there until the time for the Winter Festival of Lights.  It was freaking cold when the event started, I think the temperature must had been about 0º not counting the wind tho but the kids there were soo excited to see Mickey and Minnie and they already forgot about the cold weather…  Anyways, it was a fun experience over all, the shows they provided were a little boring, maybe good for kids but not for me, hehee, fireworks was amazing, extremely close, thumbs up for that 😀

The most horrifying experience was the walk from the event area back up to the eating area.  Like I said, it was really cold, and the walk towards the wind up was horrible…  Anyways, if I even do this again next time, I would be totally prepared I am sure 😀  It must have been like 15 minutes walking but it really felt like 30…  Luckily, with all our toes still attached, we got to Outback, a restaurant that don’t exist any more in Toronto area, don’t really know why but everything there still taste very well :-p  Anyways, I had a great weekend really, the whole trip cost me only $130 with hotel, food and everything, not bad huh?
