Laduree CNY macarons
Chinese New Year/Year of the Rat macarons from Laduree! I'm so happy a Laduree location has opened in the PATH..a few minutes walk from me. My favourite flavours are the Strawberry Guimauve and Marie Antoinette.

Here are some photos from the second half of January:

snow tubing
We went to a small skiing/snow-tubing place a short distance away from the city a couple weekends ago. I've only been skiing once in my life and am pretty bad at it. So just did the tubing this time lol.

United Nude Issey Miyake
Their washrooms are super dark with fluorescent lighting..so my shoes literally glowed.

The Gentlemen
Last weekend we went to watch The Gentlemen. It was such a good movie! I loved the concept.

Hungarian Restaurant Toronto
The best place for schnitzel in the city - Country Style Hungarian Restaurant. The place is really cozy and authentic, and the portions are HUGE. They only accept cash though.

Inner Life of Animals
Another book I recently finished: The Inner Life of Animals. It's part of a trilogy by Peter Wohlleben. I read The Hidden Life of Trees first which was really interesting (I posted about it previously). This Animals one wasn't as informative but it was still entertaining.
