Late post - Happy New Year

It's almost the end of the month and I haven't post an entry in a very long time. It's due to the fact that I'm extremely lazy!

Since it's still January, I can still wish everyone a Happy New Year right? Hahaha, and those who celebrate Lunar New Year - Happy new year! I didn't get a lot of red pockets this year maybe because I'm getting older idk haha. But today is actually the seventh day of the Lunar calendar and today is 人日. The literal translation being: human/person's day so aka everyone's birthday. We're all a year older! Gahh makes me realize I'm almost reaching mid 20s...

Anyway, a few pictures from this month to share...

The day after New Years, LD, RC and I headed down to Buffalo for a day trip. I originally wasn't gonna go but I was glad I did because I got to visit Target and CHEESECAKE FACTORY! (Yes, I had to capitalize that haha). We shopped at the Factory Outlets and Walden Galleria which btw is huge!

My first Target ever and where I bought the oh-so-famous Sonia Kashuk brushes and some items that we didn't have here in Toronto. Actually, Target is planning to make their debut here in Toronto...but that won't be happening until 2013 :(.

After a long tiring day, it was time to eat! This was my first visit (and hopefully not the last) to the Cheesecake Factory. Even though it was packed, we didn't have to wait that long..maybe half an hour? Not bad.

BBQ salmon with mash potatoes and corn. One thing I noticed is that American food portions are HUGE (good for the amount you're paying but not so good for your health haha) I should've opt for the skinny menu that they had. I couldn't finish this meal and had my friends help me out lol.

And of course we can't leave the restaurant without eating the ever famous cheesecakes they have! RC originally suggested to order two pieces to share and both LD and I said "You're nuts!"
So we ordered this Red velvet cheesecake and it was MORE than enough for the three of us!
I thought it tasted really good, but LD and RC said it was okay...I guess they're not much of a cheesecake fan like I am.

Here's LD and I holding the menus haha


This was a few weeks ago, had dinner at Song Cook (located at Yonge & Steeles) with MG. Song Cook is one of those restaurants where you have to take your shoes off and sit on the floor which is heated! How awesome is that? Makes your bum all warm and toasty hahaha :p

72 Steeles Avenue West


Chinese New Year dinner aka 團年飯. Yeah I know, Instagram fail..I was doing this while I was eating lol. I didn't wear any red clothing (because I don't own any) but I did wear red nail polish haha.


Chai Latte @ Aroma Expresso Bar located at Bathurust & Bloor. I've always wanted to go to Aroma for coffee and I finally did when I met up with a friend to catch up. I love Chai lattes and Aroma's chai latte was good! But it's hard to find seats since it's always preoccupied with students "studying".

  1. Good entry! I didnt find buffalo very interesting and that's why you didnt want to go originally (probably).

    I am the biggest cheesecake fan in the history of ever. I like green tea cheesecake, strawberry cheesecake, as long as it's very heavy. I dont like soggy cheesecake i like it so THICK it's tough to cut with a fork lol.

    Hope you are well...
