[Summer Fun] — Exploring Downtown Toronto

What an experience! I don’t think I ever explore Downtown, Toronto even though I live in this city. We drop by here and there but never walked around to view the buildings. It was nice bringing my 2 aunts for some sightseeing. Too bad we didn’t have enough time that day – otherwise we drop by Ripley’s Aquarium too.

We walked around for over four hours and settled at Earls for a sit down dinner.

Glad they both get to enjoy the downtown life. See buildings and kind of soak in the culture a little bit. The weather was beautiful that day too!

Have a GRATEFUL day!!!

[Food] — Milestone’s Steakhouse • Markham & Review

e349e350

We don’t dine out too often with two kids but when we do – I try to pick a not too crowded restaurant. Milestone is one of our favorite places to be because of their food. Love their kids menu too!

We had an enjoyable dining experience here every time. Plus both kids were well behaved that we got to enjoy our dinner.

e351 e352

My fave is the chicken sandwich. Its huge – I can never finish it. I always have to pack the other half home. Munchkin loved his mini sliders with fries too! Hubby is a steak lover – so he got his fixed of steak here. Stay tune for more foodie reviews and adventures! I love exploring new restaurants too!

Have an YUMMILIOUS day!!!

[Food] — Wild Wings • Markham & Reviews

e353 e354 e355

Looking for bar food? Wild Wings is the place to be! Hubby & I were craving for wings & fries – we decided on Wild Wings since it was close by! We ordered two pounds of wings plus a regular fries. We always stuck to honey garlic but this time we ordered something new to try. It was creamy ranch. Have to say – not a big fan of it. I will stick with my honey garlic wings!

The restaurant was quiet that day – so the service was fast. It was a nice date night with the Hubby with no kids! Date nights are hard to come by and we treasure these moments! Stay tune for more foodie reviews and adventures!

Have an YUMMILICIOUS day!!!

[Food] — Dears Cafeteria • Markham Location & Review

g0249 g0250

Dears Cafeteria – what a unique name? I sure hope they didn’t use the wrong spelling of ‘dears’ or ‘deer’ because their logo is a ‘deer’. It will be very funny.

g0251

We decided to try a new Taiwanese restaurant out. The dish I ordered was pork chop on rice. It was a mayo overload meal for me! Way too much mayo and I couldn’t taste anything else.

g0252 g0253

Hubby enjoyed his pasta and chicken wings. But he did mention that the pasta I make tastes better than the one he had here. What a compliment for me eh?

The renovations here is nice and modern. I might give it a second try to try different dishes. They do have a large selection of their desserts too.  What are your favorites here? Comment below to share!

Have an YUMMILIOUS day!!!

[Food] — Sumo Japanese Restaurant • $10.50 Lunch Specials

g0254

Sumo Japanese restaurant is one of my go to restaurants when I want to dine in for lunch or dinner. They have their daily lunch or dinner specials. Their portion size is always good! Comes with salads and soups as well!

g0255

They have the option of a la cartè or all you can eat. My choice is always a la cartè because I am not a fan of over-eating. I give the quality here 8.5 out of 10. Service is a 10 out of 10. The staff here is always attentive and the food comes fast. No complaints!

g0256 g0257

I recommended this restaurant to a few of my friends and they all loved it. I would highly recommend it to you all!

 Have an YUMMILICIOUS day!!!

[Food] — Diana Oyster Bar & Grill • Markham Location Review

 g0261

Diana’s Oyster Bar & Grill is one of my hubbys’ favorite restaurant. When we started visiting this restaurant – it was all the way in Scarborough. We were so thrilled when they opened a second restaurant in Markham. It saves us time from travelling.

g0262 g0263

The oysters here are always very fresh. They have oyster specials on Tuesdays and Wednesdays – be sure to check it out!

g0264 g0265

Everything we order every time is delicious! Not a thing I regret ordering from their menu! What are your faves? Comment below to share with us all!

[Food] — ZenQ Dinner Specials – Markham Review

This is my second time visiting ZenQ. First time was lunch and second time was dinner. One thing that I love about ZenQ is that the renovation is very fresh and bright. It’s simple but yet modern. I like restaurants bright instead of dark.

 Another thing I love about ZenQ is that they have lunch and dinner specials that are around $9-$11. It comes with a main & a bubble tea drink. If you calculate it – a drink itself is around $5-$6 alone. That is a really good deal! Plus the food isn’t too bad here. Both times I came – I loved it.

Also – I’ve noticed that there are more ZenQ restaurants opening up around the area.

They seemed to have a large selection of dessert too – a must try for me next time. What is your favorite dish here? Comment below to share!

Have an YUMMILICIOUS day!!!

[Food] — Saigon Star • Richmond Hill & Review

 e347

Saigon Star has the best steamed oysters and curry crab in Toronto – hands up for that! Whenever Hubby & I crave for seafood – this is the place to be. We never get the chance to try their other dishes because we only order the same dishes from here.

e348

 My fave is definitely there juicy steam oysters. Two of those fill my belly up to the max.

e346

We ordered a seafood fried rice to try and it was pretty good. The price here is on the expensive side but again you get quality. What are your favorite dish at Saigon Star? Comment below to share!

Have an YUMMILICIOUS day!!!

[Celebration] — Easter Sunday Dinner With InLaws

This dinner concludes our last event of Easter 2017! What an eventful and fun Easter we had this year! We ended our Easter with a lovely dinner at Monte Carlos hotel with the inlaws. It was a yummy four course dinner.

Munchkin#1 was busy with his dinner while Munchkin#2 kept busy with watching cartoons and somehow let his parents enjoy their dinner. What a bonus right?

The kids got really spoiled with surprise eggs as gifts from their grandparents. When I got home – I had to quickly hide them! Surprisingly till this date – Munchkin#1 does not remember receiving it! I’m just not a fan of my kids having too much sweet. The egg on the right – that size will last Munchkin#1 up to a whole year. Happy Easter to you all!

Have a TERRIFIC day!!!

[Food] — Fresh Vegan Restaurant • Yonge & Eglinton

g0258

Here’s my first impression and review at a vegan restaurant. My girlfriend took me here a few weeks back and boy was it an experience! Since we had dinner prior – we only ordered two things to snack on. The first thing that came up was the poutine. It tasted good but I do notice the difference with their cheese. They used  vegan cheese and vegan gravy. It’s tasty but different from what I am used to.

g0259

This piece of chocolate cake is my first piece of vegan cake. I would have to say it tasted pretty blend to me. I do notice the difference from a regular piece of chocolate cake and this one.

I wouldn’t say I would not try vegan food again – I am open to it. Maybe when I have it more – I’ll get used to it? Who knows! Where is your favorite Vegan restaurant? Comment below to share with me!

Have an YUMMILICIOUS day!!!

[Celebration] — Our 9th Valentine’s Together • 2017

We celebrated our 9th Valentine’s day together on February 13th 2017 at Diana’s Seafood & Oyster Bar.

Usually I make a fancy dinner at home every year (except maybe 1 year we ate out because I was preggie with Munchkin#1) – I enjoy a home cook meal because of all the prepping and time put in it). Yes I got to admit I was a bit lazy this year. Haha.

We had our friend, Winson serve us dinner and it was cool catching up with him. We had the usual here: dozen oysters, surf and turf, and salmon with wild rice. Everything was delicious!

First Valentine’s day as a family of 4! It was a blissful dinner with minimal of fuss! Thank you boys for behaving and giving us an awesome dining experience out. I cannot wait till Spring and Summer – so it’s less hassle going out to places with them!

The next day, February 14th – Hubby came home with his usual flowers with a box of pink chocolate! I love the pink-ish box more than I love the chocolates lol. It’s so cute and I love the pink color. I am a big fan of pink lol.

Simple yet romantic. We aren’t romantic people and we don’t ask for much out of each other. As long as we are together with the kids – we are happy. Simplicity is key to our hearts. Happy belated Valentine’s day to you all!

Have a FABULOUS day!!!

[Food] — Me Cha Me at Highway7 & Kennedy Rd • Markham & Review

g0172

I blogged about Me Cha Me back in December 2014 – you can read my honest review here. I have nothing to say but good thing about this restaurant because it is the ONLY Asian restaurant that really caters to kids. Parents with kids will really understand why I love it so much, Happy kids and happy parents right? I don’t quite remember what’s the exact price for their kids meal but it’s between $4.99-$5.99 plus tax. Which comes with a drink or dessert, sides, and a entree. Pretty decent. They even have crayons and papers for the kids to draw.

g0173 g0174

One downfall is that this restaurant is always SO busy! Hope they’ll be expanding soon or maybe add a few different locations in. They serve a lot of desserts which I haven’t tried yet. Have you been here? What is your fave items in this restaurant? Comment below to share! Stay tune for more foodie reviews & Adventures – this blog is updated regularly at 12PM Eastern Time!

[Food] — Pho Pad Thai • Markham & Review

e356

Pho Pad Thai is one of my favorite Vietnamese restaurants when I’m craving for Viet food. They serve Thai food as well but I never got to try their Thai dishes. The soup base here for their pho(s) is awesome! Do you agree? It’s either Pho or the Lemongrass porkchop with rice I go for.

e357 e358

I should try out some new Vietnamese restaurants in town – what would you recommend? Comment below to let me know! Stay tune for more daily foodie adventures and reviews – this blog is updated regularly at 12PM Eastern Time. Thanks for stopping by!

[Celebration] — My 28th Birthday

I celebrated my birthday this year at Cancun, Mexico with my three loves. It was my first time celebrating my birthday out of the country. Kind of cool! The staff decorated my room and left a heart shape birthday cake. It was very special. We had a relaxing and fun day! I love spending quality time with my family!

When I got back from our trip – I had a belated birthday dinner with my in-laws at Baton Rouge. Munchkin#1 got to sing me ‘Happy Birthday’ again. I love it!

How do I feel about being 28? To be honest – after having kids – age is just really a number. The only thing that concerns me is to maintain my skincare and not look too old. Lol. Twenty eight is pretty close to 30s for sure. But I’m already very blessed with two healthy kids & a loving husband. What more can I ask for right?

However, I’m greedy and I have one wish this year. I wish my stepmom and every ALS patient on this earth will have a cure. That’ll be my wish every year. Might be greedy to ask but they deserve to be alive.

Have a WONDERFUL day!!!
