New York: June 14, Thursday

A., my bf, wanted to eat tacos. Last night he was so underwhelmed by the tortas that, today, he was determined to find the best tacos. On Broadway and Myrtle, in Brooklyn, is a grocer called Regalo de Juquila. I ordered the Chorizo Taco because… I see chorizo, I want chorizo. If they had tacos…

New York: June 13, Wednesday

In this series, I’ll be sharing my thoughts on the New York trip I made with my bf last summer. I swear, this time, I won’t wait ’til after 6 months to update because I actually wrote every night on this trip.Before we flew out, I started writing travel details on this brown notebook. I…

The Best of November

Toronto just had its first snowfall of the year. I’m not looking forward to that. So far, I’ve managed to survive nursing school without caffeine. I don’t intend on taking it anytime soon. Favourite song: Not My Baby by Alvvays I’m a sucker for sad songs. Sue me. Favourite artist: Ten Fé I like music,…

(Night 7) Les Éboulements, Baie-Saint-Paul, Saint-Urbain, L’Isle-Aux-Coudres The next morning, we chanced upon Boulangerie À Chacun Son Pain while searching for a decent place to eat.

Mailbox Friday

Outgoing cards. I really do miss crafting. I also miss painting. I was hoping to get a regular penpal from someone in Japan or Ireland because I’ve been meaning to go there for the longest time. It would be nice to learn what it’s like from a local. But, penpal sites don’t work like they…

The Best of September & October

I started nursing school in September and it’s been eventful. Whenever I’m tempted to slack off, I remind myself that I will pay for procastination later, and I won’t like it one bit. Whenever I’m on the edge of anxiety, I remind myself that this hardwork will pay off in the long run. I also…

The Best of August

I’ve had a busy social life this month. Gosh, this makes me a bit afraid of winter. I also just turned 30. If I’m supposed to feel some kind of dread, it hasn’t sunk in… yet. In July, I watched Radiohead in Toronto with my boyfriend, who is a big fan. Big is an understatement….

Montreal, Quebec City and the Quebec Countryside Part 3

For Part 1, click here. For Part 2, click here. (Night 5) Sacré-Coeur There were no hotels that we trusted nearby, so we had to resort to AirBnB. No choice. But, this time it’s different. Our experience was actually good. The hosts were a young couple who spend half of the year in Canada, and…

Montreal, Quebec City and the Quebec Countryside Part 2

For Part 1, click here. (Nights 3 & 4) Chicoutimi We’re near the fjord and exhausted from all the travelling. We decided we’ll stay for 2 nights at Auberge le Parasol. The room had a nice view of the Saguenay River. But it could use an update. The room was clean but the furniture and…

The Best of June & July

If you’ve been following my playlists, you probably noticed that I didn’t post one in June. So, you’re getting 40 songs from me this month. Highlights: Favourite song: Hunnybee by Unknown Mortal Orchestra I’ve been eyeing this band for years now. Still waiting to get into one of their shows, though. They’ve managed to distill…
