[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] — Joelle’s 4th Birthday Party

 

We celebrated Princess Joelle’s fourth birthday early July. The theme was everything pink & purple & princess-y.

The adults get to catch up & eat while the kids did their own thing! Which was perfect! I love how the kids get to celebrate birthdays together every year! What a blessing it is to have each other as good friends!

Cheers to another year older & stay healthy forever Princess Joelle! Can’t wait to celebrate many more birthdays with you!

Have a GRATEFUL day!!!

[Kids] — Fantasy Fair at Woodbine Mall • Kids Fun

g0207

We visited Fantasy Fair located inside Woodbine Mall with our friends on October 22nd, 2016. It was basically 3 families with 2 kids each. A total of 6 kids and 3 sets of parents. We had free tickets to play rides and boy the line ups were long! It was packed with people too! My advice to you is to go on weekdays instead!

g0208 g0209

What I love about this place is that it’s an indoor playground! Perfect for the cold season where you don’t want to go outdoor but there’s still a place for the kids to have fun. Kids will have fun while the adults can go shopping or have a meal. PERFECT! The unlimited rides pass is very inexpensive too – between $16-$18.

 

Overall – it was our first time there and our son loves it and wouldn’t want to leave. We had to drag him out even after 5 hours of fun! My foot was killing me by that point. Definitely recommend this place to you all! Have you been here? Your thoughts? Comment below! Stay tune for more daily adventures & hauls – this blog is updated regularly at 12PM Eastern Time!

[Food] — Sumo Japanese Restaurant • Markham & Review

e281

Let’s start off with their all-you-can-eat lunch and dinner pricing. I was having lunch with my girlfriend and our kids – we asked about the price for all-you-can-eat lunch and to our surprise – it’s the same price as dinner prices. We were there on a Friday – so lunch was $26.99+tax and tips. It just doesn’t make sense to us. Usually all you can eat restaurant has their lunch price $10+ less. Who eats that much for lunch anyways right?

e282

So we opted for their a la cartè menu instead. Bento boxes at $10.50 sounds more reasonable than paying over $30 per person for lunch.

e283

Anyways – let’s go on with the food and service. Food was decent and the service was great. The portion was generous as well. It was an enjoyable lunch catching up with the girlfriend while the kids play. The restaurant was quite empty – so that made it peaceful.

e284

I think I will give the all you can eat dinner menu a try one day and give a proper review. But definitely will not spend $30+ for lunch. What are your thoughts? Love it or hate it? Comment below to share! Stay tune for more daily updates & hauls – this blog is updated regularly at 12PM Eastern Time!

[Toy][Review] — Talking Elmo Worth It? • Review & Thoughts

b133

Is Talking Elmo worth the money? I believe it cost $59.99+tax! I didn’t purchase my son’s Talking Elmo – he got it as a gift for his second birthday. I don’t think I would ever spend that kind of money.

The battery died after a week of playing with it. We thought something went wrong – how could battery run out that fast? It was the battery problem.

Then a few weeks later – the battery died again. Seriously? At this point I was annoyed with changing batter do often. Battery will probably be more expensive than purchasing the toy.

My son loved it for a few weeks and didn’t care much for it after. Would I consider purchasing it? Not at all. First off – it’s expensive. Second off – you’ll get annoyed changing batteries all the time. Definitely would not recommend buying it. Here goes my review – stay tune for more daily reviews – this blog is updated every day at 12PM Eastern Time! 

Have a WONDERFUL day!!!

[Life Story][Celebration] — Jayden’s 3rd Birthday Party – Thomas & Friends theme

398

Celebrated our son’s third birthday early this week – we celebrated 7 days early so we could spend the day with him and just enjoy a stress free day spending family time. Every year I do the same because I’m greedy and I just want to enjoy my loving family.

399

I started planning his birthday early last year! Yes I am crazy but I cannot help it! It was suppose to be a Mickey Mouse theme this year but since my son is so in love with Thomas & Friends – I changed the theme. It looks like a lot of prep work but I enjoyed every bit of it. I design, print, cut, and planned everything on my own! I just love it! The process of planning is too much fun for me – you can read my Thomas and Friends party planning process HERE. I document everything!

400 401

A lot of prep work, set up, and cleaning up to do but I won’t have it any other way! He only turns three once and I will do it every year till he tells me he no longer wants a birthday party. Got to thank my stepsister for helping I set up! One thing I know missing is some Creative Costumes – for sure I’ll be picking out some for his next birthday!

402 403

Every party I plan – there’s only one reason to it – it’s to have fun, create memories, and capture them. We live once – so I try to make it as memorable as possible! My son was such a shy bug on his birthday – he wouldn’t even face the camera when taking photos! Got to thank our friend, Clement for the amazing photos! These photos mean the world to me!

404 405

Can’t believe he’s three! The big THREE! It tears me up every year – he’s another year older and another year wiser or shall I say another year naughtier? Lol. It’s a life time of blessing being his parents. We want to thank all his aunties, uncles, and little friends for all the love and care – he’s truly a spoil bum. Thanks for being in our life and bringing joy and happiness! We are truly blessed to have amazing people in our lives!

Have a BLISSFUL day!!!

[Life Story][Celebration] — My 26th Celebration [Part2 & 3]

614

Celebrated my second part of my birthday with two girlfriends of mine on November 16th and it was just something simple. Simplicity to me is the key! I like things simple :). We tried a new Japanese fusion restaurant and it was quite unique because the sushi rice was mixed with purple and black rice. That was a first! We dined at Tsuki Izakaya and I’ll be writing a thorough review on that restaurant soon – stay tune for that!

615 616

Such an enjoyable two hour dinner – just catching up since our life is so busy with families, other halves, friends, work, school, and other commitments in life. It’s hard to find time to get together but we try our best for once a month. Can’t wait to see them next month! Get ready for part 3 of my birthday celebration with my in-laws below!

Celebrated my third celebration with my in-laws at Fracticilli’s Authentic Italian Restaurant. I totally forgot to take a family photo with them this year. I was quite busy trying to enjoy the food and feed my two and a half year old at the same time. But overall quite a dark restaurant! I’ll be doing a thorough review about this restaurant soon – stay tune for that. This blog is updated every single day at 12PM Eastern Time – feel free to drop by soon.

[Food] — Ming’s Restaurant at Highway7 & Kennedy – Peach Tree Plaza REVIEW

JENSLIFESTYLE 1044 JENSLIFESTYLE 1047

I’ve been to Ming’s Restaurant twice for lunch. Typical Hong Kong style café to me. They have set lunches that comes with soup, a main course and a drink for an inexpensive price.

JENSLIFESTYLE 1045

I wouldn’t say it’s one of my favorite café – I do think they need a renovation to modernize their restaurant a bit. It’s a bit in the old fashion size. Nonetheless – food is good and affordable.

[Haul] — My First Pandora Haul – Gift For Girlfriend Grace

JENSLIFESTYLE.COM 0616

A little gift for the girlfriend for her 24th birthday!

This is actually my first time stepping foot into a Pandora store – except I did not purchase this gift at the actual store. The associate from Pandora relocated me to L’oro Jewelry because they didn’t have the charm I wanted at the actual Pandora location. Weird to me but it wasn’t such an hassle – since it was only a minute away.

JENSLIFESTYLE.COM 0617

Personally – I’m not a fan of these little charm things. I love the packaging much more than the actual product – so I don’t plan on owning one of their bracelets but as for gifting – as long as it has a meaning – I’m down for it! Stay tune for my second Pandora haul – another birthday gift but this time – for a one year old baby girl!

Are you a fan of these Pandora charms?? Care to share your thoughts? Comments below!

Not a review at all. Just wanted to share some photos with you on this blog post. I cant give a proper review because I didn’t try any of these desserts – due to being on a strict diet. So let the pictures do the talking for me.

[Food] — Destiny Scarborough Review

JENSLIFESTYLE.COM 170 JENSLIFESTYLE.COM 171

Ever since being on a diet – bubble tea is the number one thing to stay away from – because it’s loaded with sugar and basically your drinking sugar. So it’s a No No to my diet. I resorted to ‘Red Dates Logan Tea’ instead of the regular bubble teas. I haven’t been to the Destiny in Scarborough in years or even any bubble tea shop for months – looks like the price raised for some of their bubble tea and food selection.

JENSLIFESTYLE.COM 172 JENSLIFESTYLE.COM 173

From what I remember – the ‘Red Dates Logan Tea’ was $6.99 and if you wanted an extra cup – that was an extra buck?!? I don’t mind paying an extra cup but it sounds pretty ridiculous to me. Don’t you agree? The service here is – meh ‘so so’ – half the waiters/waitress speaks Mandarin and barely any English. So it was hard to communicate while ordering food. I would say the ‘Red Dates Logan Tea’ was a on the sweeter side for me. Maybe it’s just me that I don’t like it as sweet but maybe to other people – it’s perfect.

I know that quite a lot of Bubble Tease shop opened around Scarborough & Markham lately. So many choices to choose from – Green Grotto and Chatime is the popular ones. I’m not a Bubble Tea drinker – so I can’t say much about those two shops. Care to share your thoughts? Which Bubble Tease shop is your number one favorite? Leave a comment below to share!

[Food] — Gabin Restaurant – Palace Cuisine of Korea – Scarborough – Review

JENSLIFESTYLE.COM 194 JENSLIFESTYLE.COM 195

GaBin Restaurant became one of my favorite! They have the best Pork Bone Soup ever – I’ve been here for quite a few times now and every time – there’s no disappointment at all. From what I remember – it’s $6.99 per a bowl of Pork Bone Soup. Pretty inexpensive to me comparing that price to other Korean Restaurants. I used to go Nak Won Korean Restaurant but the quality has gone down quite a lot. Quite disappointed in their soups.

JENSLIFESTYLE.COM 196 JENSLIFESTYLE.COM 197

So if you are a Pork Bone Soup lover – check this restaurant out! Located on Silverstar Blvs – Scarborough. It’s a small restaurant – so try to RSVP before heading there. Care to share any awesome Korean Restaurants around town? Comment below! I love trying new restaurants out!
