I recently did a little reorganizing in the kitchen. Not everything is fully organized yet – so I won’t do a full kitchen organized blog post.
I’ve been searching for pink clean containers and finally found them at an affordable price! These containers were for $6.99+tax for 6! What a steal? I’m looking forward into purchasing more when I have the time to. I purchased them at One’s Better Living inside Market Village. They come in different sizes too.
If you follow my blog – you would know how OCD crazy I am. Everything’s got to match – even with kitchen containers! The colors have to be either pink or purple too.
The first thing I stored was the soup ingredients – I just had too much. Since i love making soup plus I make it twice a week too. Love how the bottom is see through. I don’t even need to label it.
Just a little fridge organization too lol. I like my fridge neat and tidy too. Stay tune for more organization adventures – this blog is updated daily at 12PM Eastern Time! Thanks for dropping by!
I love doing every day vlogs but it can be quite time consuming with the editing. I still want a couple minutes in our everyday life captured without doing ANY editing. So I decided to just capture the moments worth capturing and uploading them straight to Youtube on my phone! Boy do I love this process! I still can capture the memories without editing anything!For the vacation vlogs – I’ll still do the whole day vlog – those are worth it. Same with birthday, celebrations, special outings, and milestones ones will be full day vlogs too!
What type of vlogger are you? I love capturing memories because I don’t have much of my own when I was a baby slash kid. I want these memories be long lasting for my little one!

It’s been a long while since I had Kim Ichiban’s yummy sushi and sashimi. My girlfriend highly recommended this place and brought take out over.
The sashimi was super fresh and delicious. I love the thickness of each slice. For sure I’ll be visiting Kim Ichiban for a sit down dinner there and give a better review next time! Stay tune for more food adventures and reviews – this blog is updated daily at 12PM Eastern Time!
Love organization and this is my son’s room that I probably organized a hundreds of times already. I think this is seriously the last time.
We will be purchasing a bed frame for him when we move next year. Reason why we didn’t buy him a bed frame yet is because we want to avoid any injuries. Like him falling off the bed and etc…
I hit most of the toys in the corner so I won’t see the mess he creates lol. I don’t get why he loves to make a mess and throws all his toys everywhere. It’s like an everyday routine. I’ve learned to not get pissed at it and make him clean up his mess after he finishes messing up with it.
Since we won’t be leasing this condo long – this will be my last time rearranging his room till we move to our new place. This boy has way too much toys and this is only 75% of it – the rest of his toys is at his grandparent’s house. Stay tune for more adventure – this blog is updated daily at 12PM Eastern Time!

It was my first time ordering from Seoul Banchan located inside New Kennedy Plaza on Highway 7 and Kennedy. The price really did tempt me. I was a little disappointed when I opened the box of rolls and sashimi’s because everything looked so small and thin. I guess there’s a saying called “you get what you pay”. On the flyer it said it’ll include miso soup for all party trays which mine didn’t come with. Not a big deal since I’m not a fan of miso soups. However – The sashimis were fresh but thin. Rolls were okay.
Would I consider ordering from them again? I don’t think so for now. Just a little disappointed. Have you been here and what are your thoughts? Comment below to share! Stay tune for more adventures and reviews – this blog is updated daily at 12PM Eastern Time!
Recently attended a wedding here in May 30th 2015. This is actually my second time visiting this restaurant. The first time I had dim sum here with my stepfamily & god family. Click HERE for my yum cha experience.
I love love love the chandlers here! The server we had that night was phenomenal and was very attentive to our needs. Especially we had a little 3 year old with us – we needed to get this and that.
Food was fresh and delicious! No complaints there. It was overall a super fun night. Love the hospitality and service this restaurant provided! Definitely worth dining here!

My first question is – what is the hype?! I’ve been to this restaurant a handful of times and every time its packed full. The food is so so here and relatively not as cheap as other cha chan tangs (Hong King Style cafés).
Really not a fan of the rush and especially the food isn’t that great here! Can someone tell me what the hype is all about? Maybe the fusion style dishes they came up with?! Nothing really unique to me really. Comment below to share your thoughts! Stay tune for more restaurant adventures & reviews – this blog id updated daily at 12PM Eastern Time! Thanks for stopping by!
Celebrated Father’s day a day early on June 20th 2015. Reason for being early is just because I’m not interested in crowds and slow services. Hence this is why I always plan special days in advance and celebrate in advance.
As a parent – our sons’ happiness is our happiness. Ever since parenthood – our life is all about him. If he’s happy – we are happy. We visited Milliken Park for some park fun during the afternoon. Our Munchkin lives playing with water!
We dined at The Keg Steakhouse that night. It was an yummilious dinner. I love how they have kid’s meal! Overall a very relaxing and fun day for all of us. Family time is never enough! I love my family and would want to spend every second with them. Here goes my husbands’ 4th Father’s day! Cheers too many more Fathers’ day to him. Thanks for dropping by!

It’s a bittersweet day for the Cheung household! We miss our bed at home but we love the hospitality here! This place will for sure be missed! We had breakfast and just hanged out in the lobby and at the golden club lounge for the rest of her time there.
Our driver came at 12PM sharp to drive us to the airport. We took a few lovely photos on the way to the airport. Samana is seriously a very beautiful nature place to visit! The mountains, the water, the greeneries, and just the fresh air too!
We got to the airport near 1:00PM. Samana airport reminds me of the Puerto Plata airport. Almost the same layout and size.
We got two bottles of 500ml alcohol at $18.00USD! If you have friends or families birthdays coming up – pick some up! If I could carry more – I would have bought even more! It’s like CHEAP comparing to what we pay for in Toronto!
Our flight was smooth and we were early too! Westjet seriously never disappoints me! I never had a delay from them and I’ve taken Westjet for over 20 times!
I want to elaborate a little about Bahia Principe – everything was perfect. Housekeeper cleaned our room TWICE a day! They left mini boxes of chocolate near our pillows. Our room was always clean!
Food? I got to give 10/10! Every meal was deliciously made! For the people that complain about the food here – I don’t know what planet you are in! The chefs are very experience here.
Gift shops in the resort? Don’t even bother – very expensive and not worth it. We bought a mini size sun lotion at 13.00UDS with 15%off already because of VIP members. Try to shop during excursions or at duty free at the airport!
One advice from us to you is – don’t forget to tip! People in Dominican don’t earn as much. Tipping will help them a lot.
Overall this was another amazing family trip. Just #LOVELOVELOVE! Got to thank Bahia Principe and Westjet for another great experience! I can’t wait to go back to another paradise resort vacation next December 2016! Hope you enjoy my journey and reviews! I enjoy blogging it down to share with everyone. Before I go on any vacation – I like to know about every single detail before going. Hope this information helped you!

It’s our last full day here at Bahia Principe Samana. It’s been a wonderful one week stay and we love every bit of it. Hubby, Munchkin, and I had no complaints with this resort. Everything was mostly perfection.
The day before – I made a reservation at the spa to get my hair braided. The spa was very nice and spacious. The hair dresser didn’t take long to get my hair braided because I only wanted half of my head braided. It only took six strands. Last time I got my hair braided was in 2013 December at Cuba. It’s like a trend for me to get my hair braided on vacation. With six strands – it only cost $6.00UDS. Basically one strand is $1.00USD. Price is very reasonable.
We did our usuals – visited the beach for one last time, kids park, lunch, and pool.
Our last a la carte dinner was at 7:30PM that night. The restaurant is called Rodizio Brazilian Restaurant located right next to the beach! It’s very romantic but too bad we didn’t get a table to sit right next to it.
We started dinner off with an introduction of how the restaurant works. The service and food was amazing! I wished we could make 2 reservations here if I knew how amazing this restaurant was beforehand! One thing I didn’t like about it was the heat. It was so hot! Overall – if you are visiting this resort – this restaurant is a MUST try!

Sitting here on our day6 of our trip and my view right now is in front of the kid’s water park. My son can stay here all day without getting bored! That’s how much he loves it. I asked if he wanted to go back home to Toronto and his answer was straight up “NO!” Lol.
I’m not feeling so well today – so lounging around and getting up to date with my blog posts is the way to go. If I blog after I get home – I probably will forget most of my experiences by then. So I blog whenever I can and have the time to. I enjoy typing down my days – so maybe when I’m in my 60s – I can reminisce all these memories saved here on this blog. To be honest – I started blogging not because of me. I started blogging because I want my son or future kid(s) to actually know their mother. I grew up not knowing my own and not knowing what I was like as a child. In case one day I’m gone – this blog will hopefully be around for them to figure out who they are and what’s their mom really like.
Okay – enough of this life stuff. Let’s go on with day6 – two more days till we actually leave. Yesterday totally drained out my energy from 6:40AM to 10PM! Spending most of the time in the heat and sun is really tiring.
We started day 6 off at 8 in the morning. Woken up by the Munchkin – he’s been having a hard time peeing in his diaper because he’s so used to the potty at home. He refuses to use the toilet in our room. No choice! Poor boy!
Around 9:30AM – we headed for breakfast and 11:00AM we had a privilege club member meeting at the Mediterranean restaurant. Just to review how our trip went and get to know us a little better. I told them that Bavaro VIP club is a lot different than the system they have here. Bavaro have more VIP services – while here seems like they only had 10% of it. With my concern – he said that the resort here is doing a lot of renovations and upgrades and by next year – everything will be more luxury. We’ll see – because we planned a lot of different trips for the next couple years and we’ve been to Dominican Republic three times straight already – it’s time to travel to another place and check off more places off in the map.
The meeting wasn’t much – just wanted to see if we enjoyed our trip and our concerns. That’s really about it.
Now I’m just sitting here under the shades watching some son and daddy bonding time. We got the whole kids water park to ourselves – no idea why there’s no kids here.
Am I home sick yet? Not really but I really miss my own bed. The bed in our room is very comfy but sleeping on my own is different. It’s just different.
Anyways – going to end this blog here at 1:40PM on June 11th 2015. Going to enjoy the rest of my day lounging and munchkin on food. Oh and of course watch my family have fun. Stay tune for the rest of our trip HERE – this blog is updated daily at 12PM Eastern Time! Thanks for dropping by!
Family time is the most precious! My son is enjoying himself like a king. Water Park every morning and snacking every hour! What a life!
Here’s the schedule of the theme buffet dinners every night!
Here’s the schedule of the shows happening every night!
It’s been a wonderful and relaxing trip so far. Loved every bit of it. I’m just going to skip the entire day and go straight to our Mediterranean dinner. Everything was on point. I loved the soup and appetizers. Servers were excellent!
I’m just going to focus this blog on our room suite because I realize I never got the chance to talk about it much. The day we arrived – we had to wait about half an hour before our room was ready. Our room was at Villa 8 – very close to everything. On the left side of our villa was the lobby/restaurants/pool/beach. On the right were the entrance/kids Water Park/ Italian Restaurant/entertainment stage. Basically everything was a minute away. And if we were very lazy to walk – a trolley is always available to us.
When I walked into our room – it was huge – same with the washroom. Love that they had a tub plus a separate shower. What I envision in my mind was a little different – I envisioned it more on the modern side. But it’s okay – everything is just the cosmetic display – nothing to stress over it. I walked into a king size bed and the bell boy asked if we wanted an extra bed for our Munchkin and we replied yes. Within less than two minutes – there was people bringing in extra bed and beddings! I say that is some excellent service!
The fridge is located right below the TV which is always stocked with drinks and some snacks. Before coming – we asked for the PS3 to be ready for our room – so we could watch DVD on it. Since we are Privilege Club Members – we were able to request a PS3 system every time but when we got to the room – it wasn’t there. And I didn’t even bother asking again because I did bring the laptop with me and we watched our DVDs. Which again it wasn’t a big deal to us. The room was quite clean but I do think they need to do some renovation to upgrade it. No biggie.

Phõ 99 is located in a little plaza next to Baskin Robbins/Subway on Highway7 and McCowan Road. It’s a hidden gem for me because finding a bowl of good Pho soup base is quite hard in this town. The appearance of this restaurant might be dated and on the dirty side but the soup base will make me return! The soup base makes everything of a bowl of pho!
Ordered a durian smoothie as well and it was delicious! Durian is a hate or love thing to everyone – either you love it or you hate it. There’s no in between. Do you love or do you hate it? Thanks for dropping by – stay tune for more food adventures & reviews – this blog is updated regularly!
Visited Steam Kitchen for the first time and I got to say – I love every dish we ordered. It reminds me of homemade food that my stepmother used to make. Every dish was so well put together.
Being the inexperience chef at home myself – I find that Chinese food is ridiculously hard to make because of the many different herbs and spices. Makes me appreciate good Chinese food other people make.
I highly recommend this restaurant if you love a good plate of Chinese food! For sure I’ll be returning very soon. Have you been here before? What’s your favorite dish there? Share by commenting below! Stay tune for more restaurant reviews & adventures – this blog is updated on a regular basis!
Matsuda is one of my favorite to go restaurant when I’m craving for Japanese all-you-can-eat. I love how fresh the sashimi is and how the sushi maki and rolls are so well made. One of my all time fave maki is of course the spicy salmon one! Those are to die for! Let the photos do the talking for this blog post!
Look at the amount of desserts we ordered! Crazy eh? I’m not a dessert fan – so 1 out of all this is mine only. lol. The price here is two to three dollar more than other Japanese all-you-can-eat restaurants but definitely worth the price for the quality food you get here. Have you been here before?
