374. Recent Life

Random photos found on my phone from the past few weeks..most are food photos (as usual?)

Toronto view from Canoe
As some of you know, Canoe is one of my favourite restaurants in Toronto. Thanks to the cold weather, Canoe being connected to the underground path (which my building is also - so luckily I don't have to step outdoors), and them having the most delicious Beef Wellington sliders I've ever tasted..I've been going there more and more often these days. We always sit at the same spot with this view.

The beef sliders and "sammies" on the right - with bacon, cheddar and smoked mustard mayonnaise. I hate mustard and mayo but these were delicious!!

Paris Vogue The Beckhams Dec 2013
The December 2013 issue of Paris Vogue. I HAD to get it because of the cover..I love the Beckhams!

Wedluxe
Earlier this month I went to the Wedluxe show (for work purposes) - an annual luxury wedding show in the Royal York Hotel.

Amsterdam BrewHouse schnitzel
Dinner one night at Amsterdam BrewHouse. I had the chicken schnitzel. The previous time I went to this place was in the middle of summer. I remember sitting outside on the patio, with the sun shining down on me. I almost melted because it was so hot. But that night when we went..it was extremely cold and the lake was pretty much frozen. I can't wait for warmer weather to arrive again..so Hennessy and I can take daily harbourfront walks again:

Memories of Japan teppanyaki
Last weekend we went for a teppanyaki dinner at Memories of Japan for my dad's (belated) birthday dinner.

373. London | Harrods Food Hall

Harrods tea
Whenever I visit London, I must visit Harrods at least a few times. It is one of my favourite department stores in the world. I love their Food Hall. Everything there is very beautifully packaged and displayed. They have everything from dozens of tea brands to chocolate, candy, meat, seafood..etc.

372. Paris | Li Chen Exhibition at Place Vendome

Li Chen Place Vendome
When I was in Paris, I came upon these sculptures at Place Vendome. They are all by a Taiwanese sculptor named Li Chen. I was actually browsing through Instagram when I was there, looking through the #Paris hashtag when I saw photos of them. I thought they were so interesting I had to go take a look. The only available time I had to go was this rainy evening, so unfortunately my photos came out kind of dark.

Les Marquis de Laduree
Les Marquis de Laduree: They were closed when I walked by. I think I'd prefer their macarons rather than chocolate (don't like chocolate that much) but the chocolates look so beautiful on the website..

On my last night in Paris I walked around the Notre Dame area.

Cafe Panis
Cafe Panis
I went for dinner at this place called Cafe Panis, right by the cathedral. The food was pretty good for a touristy spot. I had a nice chat with the waiter, who was pretty excited when he found out I was from Toronto. He lived here for one summer before and really likes it here. I wish we could trade cities.

Shakespeare and Co bookstore
Shakespeare and Company Paris
After the dinner, I went walking and stumbled across Shakespeare and Company, which apparently is quite a famous bookstore? I've seen photos of the shop before, and never knew where it was. It was definitely a cool feeling to randomly find it. This is one of my favourite things about travelling..finally seeing something in person (especially when least expected) after seeing it in photos so many times.
