2012 Winter Trip: The rest of Toronto

Resuming my travelogue ;)
 
I am going to sum up everything of Toronto here so this is a post full with photos!
 
There's a colorful street full with lights just beside Sheraton on the Falls hotel. On the first night after checked in, hubby and I took the chance to walk around.
We thought it was going to be a short walk so both of us left the room with slippers *keh gao gao* (In Hokkien it means 'act clever').
Once we walked out of the hotel lobby, we felt something was not right (It was freakingly cold!). But we din't bothered and continue the walk....
After 5 mins we decided to head back to the room to change into sport shoes and brought along gloves, haha! I think it was just 1-2'c that night!
 
Anyway, there were not many people around those streets that night, but some stores were still open.
 



The ferris wheel is so beautiful!


;P


This is such a nice themepark! 

This taken on the second morning, just opposite the hotel. Love this small park, the trees and leaves are so beautiful.

We had Western lunch at Skylon Tower on the second day. We dine at one of the world famous revolving restaurant.

Hubby and I, we were at 775 feet above the ground!

Appetizer, tomato cucumber salad

Chicken Caesar

Grilled steak

Dessert, vanilla ice cream. To be honest, the food is just mediocre. But I enjoyed the 360° view of the city from the windows.

We stopped by an ice wine factory for free wine tasting, here's me with the fine quality grapes. We also visited one of the Canadian ginseng shop.

We too dropped by the Provincial Parliment Building

There's a nice park in front of it

The sun is shining but weather is still cold

 
 

We went inside the building and signed a book for Queen Elizabeth, haha!

^^

We visited the University of Toronto, said to be the best Uni in Canada

Chinatown, Toronto

Photo stop at Casa Loma Castle

I love houses like this! No fence and can plant alot of greens in the front ;)

We shopped a while at Eaton Center. Christmas is approaching and there're lots of cute window display there


One last photo to share....
I notice most of the bathroom doors in Canada (including the airports and even in the US) have gaps like this whereby if you see carefully, you can actually see the people inside =_=
Actually I am ok with it la, just abit curious why is it designed this way :P
 
 
Ok, this will be the end of my travelogue in Canada. I hope you enjoy reading them! Please refer to the links below for my previous posts:

Part 1: Niagara Falls
Part 2: Helicopter ride

p/s: Washington, New York and shopping posts coming up soon!! ;)

  7. little slit between the doors and the wall?? hmmm, maybe this is for safety reasons?? so that if anything happened or somebody fainted inside the cubicle, at least people would know?? and that it's easier to take off the door??

    Oh man... I wish I can travel out of Malaysia too one day *wishful thinking*

    ReplyDelete
  14. Ah~~ I thought you and your hubb got lost after the brief walk. Luckily, only your toes were freezing, heh!

    ReplyDelete
  15. Theme park, for me is so-so (maybe I'm too old to enjoy this) only but red-and-orange-leaves trees opposite your hotel and the rest of the beautiful scenery, woah~~ Love them all!

    ReplyDelete
  16. The purpose of Skylon is to enjoy the majestic scenery, hence they make the food standard 'jatuh' a bit so its patrons can compliment on the city view and not solely the food, LOL!

    ReplyDelete
  17. That gap in between the door.... it's very tempting for KPC Malaysian to peep inside, don't you think so? I'm a KPC auntie :p

    1. Yvonne, wont got lost la cause just beside the hotel :p

  22. HeLLo Hayley,

    Sorry for dropping by a bit late. The internet in kampung is unstable. Without 3G, we sometimes lost connection with the internet.

    So, this time around you visit Toronto right? When visiting cold countries, never wear sandals or slippers. Hahahha! I tried before in Amsterdam, from inside my hotel, I thought the weather outside was ok, but then, I was freezing since I didn't wear jacket at that time. I had to go into many buildings to get the heater. Ahaks!

    Though there were not many people that night, you two really got the guts to go out. Was it safe to be out at night there? But I just love looking at the Ferris Wheel and the dinosaur!

    The tower, which one is better? KL Tower or the Skylon Tower? What can u see from up there? The whole of Toronto?

    The parliament building looks ancient, just like the Victorian age. But... I loike....On the other hand, our Malaysian parliament looks like an upside down pistol. Hahah!

    As usual, Chinatown is everywhere. The Chinese really survives almost in every corner of the earth. I think soon there'll be Chinatown in Antarctic.

    The toilet? Ughhh! People can have a peep. Scary...

    p/s: Have a nice day Hayley.

    1. Willie, yes it's Toronto this time.

      Haha yalo, now lesson learnt!

      Dont worry, it is safe there! Unlike our country...

      Err, I am not sure which is best, cause never really been to KL tower la! We can see 360 degree view of the Toronto city and the beautiful Niagara Falls.

      Haha correct, people can peep into the cubicle :/

近期所用的美容产品分享篇

*还没参加抽奖游戏的朋友们,快快按这里吧~ 到今晚10点罢了哦!* (For those who have not participate in the Bangkok giveaway, click HERE before 10pm today!* *帮我的家换了形象,还好吧?^^ *
好久好久没来篇像样的华语post咯! 今天就算牺牲美容觉也得呕出一篇来回馈我亲爱的读者朋友们,我知道有时看太多鸡肠对眼睛不好 xDD 怎样,我抵錫吗?:p
Hmm 近期有用了些我觉得很不错的美容产品想和大家分享分享。
1. Tosowoong pore brush 这是我美容师介绍的,来自韩国的电动洗脸仪。据说是韩国最好卖的电动洗脸仪。用的是0.045mm的nano钎维细毛,最大功能就是能彻底的深入毛孔而清洁毛孔里的污垢,同时也不会令毛孔粗大,效果比平时我们用手洗来的更干净。因为用的是很软的细毛所以可以每天使用,也不会造成什么皮肤敏感等问题。 基本上它的操作方法就好像电动牙刷一样,先将细毛弄湿然后挤上洗面乳,on一on,就可以轻轻的往脸上洗。
上回从曼谷回来脸上突然起了好多粉刺油粒,而且还是会痒的那种,应该是那边的水和空气肮脏,加上喝不够水,又不够睡,搞到毛孔诸塞阿!刚好美容师介绍了这个 pore brush,用了几天后,真的有觉得皮肤比较干净亮丽!不过我并没有每天用啦!有时赶时间的时候,用手洗会比较快 xD 想要更了解Tosowoong pore brush的朋友,可以按这里
满意度:8/10
每次用完后把细毛稍微清洗,然后放在附送的stand上,自然风干就可以了
电动棒也可以’振出’很多泡沫~
这些细毛也不会集水,所以很快就会吹干了
里面用的是一个AAA电池。基本上只要把盖锁紧,整个洗脸棒浸在水里也没问题。 售卖价格:RM 170

2。那天去索取了一包7天装的 Clarins double serum sample,用了一次后立刻爱上它了!!我一直以来对Clarins的产品都有好评。这个也不例外! 它是以油和水所制成的,里面共有20种植物精华,主要功能是抗老,减少皱纹,缩小毛孔,紧实肌肤,让肌肤有弹性。 我一直相信抗老必须从早做起所以在还未迈入‘3张’就必须打好基础,呵呵~

包装里有两种精华分别是水性的和油性的。把两种精华混合在一起,轻轻往脸上压和拍打就可以了,不需要刻意…

BFF trip to Bangkok 2013: The food post

Bangkok is not only a heaven for the men shopping but also food! I've actually Google and blog hopping beforehand to see what's worth to eat at Bangkok, can only chose the most popular ones as we were there for only 4 days 3 nights, a very rush trip.
I've filtered out those food we ate during the trip which I think worth mentioning.
@ Food court, Platinum Mall Green curry chicken rice
Beef noodles
Fruit crepe
The food court is so big here in Platinum Mall, hundreds of tables are provided but almost all are occupied.

Dessert @ Swensen, Platinum Mall

(pale looking face, first day after touching down) Swensen is not in my itinerary, we decided to go here instead of Mr Jones Orphanage at Siam Center cause of the location. Siam Center is further away from where we stay, but Platinum Mall is just about 10 minutes walk from the hotel. End up, no regrets! Much cheaper and yummier compared to Malaysia.

T&K seafood, Chinatown  (It's easier to get here by metered cab)





By far…

近期的我们

Aden: 各位阿姨叔叔好啊!=)


最近实在忙,几乎一个星期才能生一篇文,有时两个星期呢 =_="
早上都在忙家务忙孩子和载大宝上学。  下午得哄小宝睡午觉~ 还要兼顾我的网卖生意。 不过最近的他好像不爱睡午觉了耶!如果他没睡我就更不得空了!得陪他玩~  话说玩不到一下下就得出门载Aden回家了~~ 每个星期的两个傍晚我都会上tabata课,一下课就回家继续当‘佣人’ xD
晚上就是陪/教Aden做功课,有时间的话就看看AOD的香港连续剧(话说最近的连续剧都不好看!)  过后就要给孩子们睡觉啦!  每天大概就是这样过,几乎都在做同样的事,都是围绕着家庭和孩子。  不过忙归忙,累归累,我觉得都是值得的啦!  当了全职妈妈5年,没后悔过 ^^

 近两个星期的天气都很糟~ 想不到可以去哪个游泳池(之前去到酒店游泳池已经不开放给外人了 T_T),所以干脆在家玩玩水就好~ 还好这几天开始有下雨了,要不然真的要发热气了!

 上周末大宝的幼儿园老师举办动物园半日游,我第一时间报名 :p (当然是先问Aden意愿啦) 虽然上学半年多了,很多时候他还是比较内向/慢热。这次就让他和老师朋友出外郊游。原本想和他一起去,还好我没有!想说借这机会让他独立独立 =)

 老师拍的照片~  看了都感觉很热很热对吧?  一说到动物园,我第一形象就是热!xD

 小朋友们都在找什么啊??
 去载他的时候都没什么,老师也没有complain xD  问他开心吗,他说开心,看到很多动物,还说谁谁谁跌倒,谁谁谁的妈妈有去等等~  看来是很enjoy啦!


 我虽然很累很想休息,不过周末傍晚如果天气好,我都会尽量带他们出外玩玩~  要不然呆在家也是看ipad玩玩具而已~

 久久晒一下夫妻两的照片 :p  我们还是一样,无穿无烂 :p 只是最近的他晒黑了很多!没办法啦!太阳公公太热情了,而老公也得出外做工养活啊~ (
辛苦你了老公) 话说我好像很少在这里提起我家abang的ho?哈哈!
不知不觉都认识了14年,当夫妻已有8年。  两公婆开心的时候有,不开心的时候也不少呵呵~  不过这也算正常吧?毕竟要两个不同背景的人要走在一起组织一个家庭不容易,难免会有意见不合争吵什么的~  我觉得最重要还是要互相体谅和多沟通啦!这样才能长久~ right? =)

 从早忙到晚的我,真的很需要好好保养和调理身体~  感恩我遇见…
