Photos: Vancouver Pride Parade 2019

The Vancouver Pride Parade 2019 was last Sunday, but summer days really make me lazy. I’d prefer to be just reading a book at hand while lying down on a beach, listening to the gentle waves of the Pacific Ocean. It’s my first time to attend the Pride Parade in

Photos: Quarry Rock Trail in Deep Cove and the Views from Above

I did the Quarry Rock Hiking Trail yesterday for the first time. It was a beautiful day – and it’s a weekend, too! That means that hiking trails near Vancouver (reachable via public transport) were, as expected, crowded. And I survived. Halelu! 😀 😀 Directions: Vancouver to Deep Cove by

Springtime at Queen Elizabeth Park in Vancouver

Springtime at Queen Elizabeth Park in Vancouver is what I needed on a sunny day yesterday. The last time I checked my weather forecast app was Tuesday and it showed a rainy on Friday so I didn’t really bother to check it again. But when I woke up at almost

Cherry Blossoms at Garry Point Park

Weather forecast in Vancouver this week is either rainy or cloudy. Yesterday, however, was exceptional. It was bright and sunny with a bearable chill. So where did I go? I wasted no time but visited the Garry Point Park. Going there took me an hour and a half but it

Photos: The Hollyburn Lodge Hiking Trail in Winter

I joined a short trip to Cypress Provincial Park yesterday. It’s just a 30-40 minute ride from downtown Vancouver – on a Saturday mid-morning. It was snowing when we arrived. It stopped for a while and snowed again. Coming from Toronto, that snow was nothing but a shower. 😉 Since

Get Wet at Albion Falls

If you’re looking for a day trip outside Toronto, head out to Hamilton where the cascading Albion Falls is waiting for you to get wet. It’s an hour (or less if you take the HOV) drive and you won’t regret it. Bring an extra dry clothes for you to wear

Lavender Farm in Ontario

I went to my first lavender farm yesterday. It’s in Milton, less than an hour drive from Toronto. The direction going there is kinda complicated. We tried to google the address written on the website but it kept bringing us to an address in Boston, Massachusettes. So, we called and

Go Out and Visit a Sunflower Farm

We are in the middle of summer already — so go out and visit a sunflower farm in Hamilton, Ontario! Yesterday, after we watched the PanAm Games soccer match for Bronze Medal between Brazil and Panama in Hamilton, we decided to visit the sunflower farm which is only 20 minutes

Photos: 2015 Toronto Pride Parade

Here are the photos of the 2015 Toronto Pride Parade. I wasn’t really motivated to finish the Pride because it got boring. I don’t like it when each group has more than 50 people marching and do nothing but walk. Not even cheering. It got drag. So, I decided to

Celina Jaitly and Cyndi Lauper at 2015 Toronto Pride Parade

This year, Toronto Pride Parade has three International Grand Marshalls: Pussy Riot from Russia, Celina Jaitly from India and Cyndi Lauper from the USA. Celina Jaitly is a successful Bollywood actress who is very vocal in fighting LGBT rights in her native India where it is still a crime being

Pussy Riot Led Toronto Pride Parade 2015

Pussy Riot led Toronto Pride Parade 2015 amidst constant drizzle and chilly temperature. And oh, they didn’t just led—but they made quiet an entrance—inside a huge, red missile carried by an army truck. Boy, that was the best entrance of any International Grand Marshall Pride Toronto ever had since I

The Underpass Park in Toronto

I finally able to visit the the Underpass Park in Toronto yesterday. I’ve read and heard about this before but was not really interested until a friend who had been there last weekend told me about it, like it’s the coolest thing in this city. There was a little party

Frozen Niagara Falls Cascades Rainbow at Night

You have seen viral photos of frozen Niagara Falls at daylight but few at night time. Ok, maybe, you’ve seen the night photos of one of the world’s most iconic waterfalls, but they’re during summer night time. Have you seen the frozen Niagara Falls at night time? It’s not just really
