[Haul] — Second Large Peaceful Design Planner Sticker Haul

A super belated haul from a few months ago – I totally forgot about these stickers I purchased long ago. This is the third and largest haul I’ve purchased from them. Since I made my first two orders from this shop – I know exactly the sizes they have. I’m a bit OCD – so I want my icon stickers in the same measurements.

I ordered a few different types of stickers instead of just icon stickers this time. I purchased vacation countdown, weekend banners, and rectangle and square empty boxes.

Loved everything I ordered. Two things I love about this shop is – the shipping is inexpensive and the stickers are much more affordable than other shops. It’s about $2.50 to $3.00 per sheet. I highly recommend you this shop – it’s an etsy shop – easy to google! I will for sure be ordering from her again!

Have a FABULOUS 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!

[Food] — Costco Chicken Pho Bowls Review

Here goes my review of these delicious Chicken Pho bowls! Since it was $2.00 off at Costco – I decided to give it a go. It average to about $2.00 per bowl and it came with 4 bowls. I thought it would be a much bigger bowl but to my surprise – its like a snack size. Which – you probably would need about 2 to 3 bowls for a meal.

My first thought was – how good can a frozen bowl of pho be? I was so wrong about this statement! It is actually really tasty!!! The soup tasted so good that I couldn’t resist on not drinking it all. Although a lot of MSG but I can’t help it. The amount of noodle and chicken was just perfect. I wish they could come out with bigger bowls – then it’ll be perfect for meals. Otherwise – this is good for a quick snack. You can just pop this in the microwave for a few minutes – than it’s ready to eat. Definitely convenient. I would be purchasing this for a quick snack. Definitely recommend you all for trying it. Have you tried it? What are your thoughts? Comment below to share!

[Review] — Zwilling Sol II, 10 Pc Cookware Set Review

It’s about time to review this set of cookware I received during 2016 Christmas. It’s my very own set of cookware. With such an OCD person I am – I like to have a matching set instead of pieces from different brands. I’ve used this set for a good 4 months already.

They packed this set very sturdy. Let me tell you – this set of cookware is VERY heavy. I should of known how heavy it is before I purchased it but I didn’t think of it. It came with 10 pieces plus a free frying pan (picture right below). This set was on sale at 40%off and it came with a free frying pan.

Reason why I choose this set instead of the other sets is because I like the details on this set. I didn’t like the shiny glaze on it. Do I love it? I have to say – the only thing that throws me off is the weight of it! It’s heavy! I am used to holding pans and pots in one hand. I had to adjust to the weight but overall – this set is a pretty decent set. Also – I love how I can put these pots and pans in the oven to finish off my cooking. Which is convenient for me since I like to do both.

The sale at Kitchen Stuff Plus told me that Henckels Zwilling has a lifetime warranty – which sold me on it. But would I really keep this set for a lifetime? I think I would get bored of looking at it for the next 50 years lol. But for sure – sturdy! if anything happens to the handles – I can just call Henckels. This set comes with everything I need – no need to go buy extra pieces. I would recommend it – only if you don’t mind the weight of it.

Have a GRATEFUL day!!!

[Review] — Belkin USB Cable .VS. Apple USB Cable

Did I ever mention how I HATE Apple cable chargers? I’ve changed them numerous times and I absolutely hate them! They don’t last until the one year mark. I understand that if you purchase it through Apple – you get a 1 year warranty – but it’s still annoying! I’ve asked most of my friends and they have the same problem. Apple should really do something about this problem!

Anyways – since I had have enough with the Apple charger – I went to Apples and asked the staff to recommend something that does NOT rip. Which they recommended Belkin. Why didn’t they introduce this to us earlier? I could of saved a lot of money from re-purchasing Apple cables.

Do I love or dislike the Belkin cable? I have to say – I love it so far. It’s very sturdy. It’s used it about 6 month and no ripping so far. It doesn’t look like it’s going to fall apart anytime soon. So hopefully this is the last time I need to purchase a charger cable! The price for the Belkin cable is $34.95+tax and the Apple cable is $25.00 to $35.00 depending on length. Would highly recommend the Belkin cable over the Apple cable. What are your thoughts? Comment below to share!

Have a TERRIFIC day!!!

[Food] — Smash Kitchen & Bar • Markham & Review

g0271

I had lunch here with my husband and two boys the other day. It was a quiet afternoon – which I love! I’ve been here a few times for dinner but never lunch.

g0269 g0270

I’ve decided to try their meatloaf while my husband had their burgers and fries. I wasn’t a big fan of their meatloaf – it wasn’t my taste. I love how it had a lot of vegetables under – love the onion rings as well. But the meatloaf wasn’t so good. I only ordered it because I’ve read some good reviews about it. I only took a few bites of it and that was it. Such a disappointment – should of ordered something else. Other than the meatloaf disappointment – service was on point. What is your favorite on the menu to order? Comment below to share!

Have a WONDERFUL day!!!

[Food] — Joey’s Markville • Markham & Review

g0276 g0277

Had lunch with my Hubby and 2 boys at JOEY’s Markville awhile back. I love dining here during lunch because its peaceful and the service was on point.

We ordered four different items to share. They do have kids menu – be sure to ask the server about it!

Everything came deliciously yummy! Hubby looked forward to the lobster grill cheese sandwich! But to be honest – I can barely taste much lobster in it because the cheese overtook the whole sandwich. I want to try making this lobster sandwich at home with half the amount of cheese. The importance is the lobster right?

g0278 g0279

We had quite an enjoyable lunch that day! The boys behaved so well and it made our lunch experience more enjoyable. Only parents would understand what I am talking about here. Haha. Have you been to Joey’s lately? What is your favorites on the menu? Comment below to share!

Have a FABULOUS day!!!

[Food] — Ten Ren’s Tea • Markham Location & Review

g0266

Had lunch with my girlfriend here a few weeks ago – I always walk by this place but never really went in for lunch or dinner. So here’s my review of it. This bubble tea restaurant is HUGE and very spacious. Great to bring kids and stroller in because of the amount of free space it has.

g0267 g0268

To be very honest – the bubble tea is quite expensive and nothing special here. We tried their lunch special at $15.99 and it came with a drink. If you order a drink separately – it’s about $8.00 to $10.00 each.

g0272 g0273

I would say food here is average. Some dishes are reasonable and some are a little overpriced. They do have daily specials – so I advice you to check them out. Customer service is great – there were enough staff. Overall – I would rate this restaurant 8 out of 10. A great place to chill with friends.

[Food] — Shanghai Dim Sum • Markham & Review

e359

Shanghai Plaza is located at Chalmers Road and Highway 7. My husband always craves for Shanghai cuisine and so we’ve tried quite a lot of different Shanghai restaurants. I think we’ll need to visit Shanghai soon to see if there is any difference between the food here and there. I’ve heard that it’s different the way they make their ‘siu long bao’ – one day I’ll know.

e360 e361

We couldn’t order too much since it was only the three of us dining there that night. We had siu long bao, wor teep, and a fried rice. Everything was fresh and delicious. We can’t wait to go back and try some of their other dishes. Have you been here? What kind of dishes would you recommend? Comment below! Stay tune for more foodie reviews & adventures – this blog is updated regularly at 12PM Eastern Time! Thanks for stopping by!

Have an YUMMILICIOUS day!!!
