[Celebration] — Labour Day

Can you say food overload much? Yes – all the dim sum our friends brought over was crazy – we all had two meals out of it. Lunch & dinner – I had to make sure they finished it up before leaving our place! It was a fun & relaxing day – main goal was to catch up with everyone. Relaxing led to being lazy! But it’s all good! Hard to get everyone together unless it’s special occasions – so it was awesome getting to catch up!

Have a BEAUTIFUL day!!!

[Celebration] — Nelson’s abirthday

Another year older & another year wiser. So glad we got to spend another year on this special day with Munchkin#1s godfather. It has become somewhat of a tradition for us.

We didn’t get to spend much time due to camp the next day but we did spend quality time. I’ve know this guy since my college years which I was 19 years old back then. I can’t believe it’s been 10 amazing years knowing him. Thanks for being genuine & just being you. That’s what we adore of you – simply being yourself!

Have a SPECIAL day!!!

[Summer Fun] — Barrie Hill Farm & Wasaga Beach

What a wonderful time at Barrie Hill Farm with our friends! It was our first time picking blueberries and strawberries. At first – hubby wasn’t too thrilled about the idea but he ended up enjoying it.

Munchkin#1 did not pick anything because he is OCD and didn’t want to touch anything. His job was to hold the bucket while his parents collected the goods. He had a lot of fun with his friend running around the farm.

After around 3 hours being at the farm – we headed for lunch at our friends Japanese restaurant. We had such an amazing meal – all of us were stuffed!

We stopped by Wasaga for about 2 hours after lunch. The water was quite cold but the kids still loved it.
What an amazing fun day out with our friends and we got to meet some new friends too.

Have a LOVELY day!!!

[Celebration] — Carmen & Richard’s Gender Reveal Party

What a blessing to be invited to this Gender Reveal party of our good friends! A new member of the family means a new chapter of their lives.

I was so anxious finding out what the gender was! I wanted to do a gender reveal party when we found out what munchkin#2 was but the excitement to share killed us and we couldn’t keep it in! So kudos to this couple for keeping it a secret for a few months!

Congratulations on having a baby girl! We cannot wait to meet this little precious angel of yours!

Have a TERRIFIC day!!!

[Summer Fun] — Hubbys’ Co-Workers Gathering • Barbecue & Wine

What is better than some wine and barbecue over a hot summer day? It was a nice get together with Hubbys’ coworkers – catching up with life. Nice conversations and nice wine = a perfect summer patio day. Food was delish with a mixture of everything.

We try to get together every summer and it’s nice for me to socialize with Hubbys’ coworkers. Sometimes they invite me to go to their work dinner but with 2 kids – there’s no way for me to go. Maybe I’ll join them for their work lunches one day! It’s nice to feel included into things. Hubbys’ coworkers are all very nice & easy to get along. Till next time!

Have a LOVELY day!!!

[Celebration] — Sixth Year Wedding Anniversary

Sixth year wedding anniversary with the love of my life was somewhat relaxing but with a day of kids activities. Before our anniversary lunch – we headed to Munchkin#2s first swimming lesson. He loved the water and was very comfortable in it.

After the swimming lesson – we headed to Good Catch for lunch. I ordered a cocktail to share with the Hubby. Ordered my first Spicy Salmon Poké and my thoughts? Nothing really that special. Not sure what the hype is about with everyone? Hubby loved his lobster sub.

After lunch we headed to Munchkin#2s’ baptism class.

Quite an eventful day for sure but we got to spend the rest of our day at home. Six years – 2 kids & a home. What more can we ask for? I am forever blessed with my family. I am content where life is & all we need is more time to spend with each other. Can money buy time?

Have a TERRIFIC day!!!

[Food] — Tim Hortons Breakfast

e344

Tim Horton has been one of my go to for breakfast lately. They have a wide range of choices and sometimes it’s quite hard to decide. They’ve came out with wraps and sandwiches for awhile now. I love their wraps! They have much healthier choices than fast food restaurants have and that’s why I love this place. Lately I’ve been addicted with their Chipotle crispy chicken wrap! What are your fave here? Comment below to share!

Have an YUMMILICIOUS 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!!!
