What’s Inside the Ice Hotel in Quebec City

One thing that’s in my bucket list is: sleep in the Ice Hotel. I’ve been to two Ice Hotels already: one was in Montreal in 2013 and the other was in Quebec last weekend. I can’t afford to stay in there yet. As a poor backpacker and a solo traveler, 

Watch: Montmorency Falls is frozen

Montmorency Falls is frozen. Yes, there’s another Canadian falls that’s equally gorgeous as Niagara Falls when frozen. Go to Quebec City and find it out yourself and you’ll be amazed at its sheer magnificence and beauty that you’d be telling all over and over again to your friends. And the

The Frozen Beauty of Montmorency Falls

The frozen beauty of Montmorency Falls in Quebec City will never fail to delight your naked eye. In winter, when the city is literally enveloped in inches of snow and in sub zero Celsius, Montmorency Falls, which is higher than the world-famous Niagara Falls, shows its beauty that you would

Quebec Winter Carnaval Parade

A parade in freezing temperature? And at night? That’s even colder! Oui! Only in Quebec City, the self-proclaimed “Winter Capital of the World.” And guess what? People really went out, watched the parade and braved the biting wind and freezing cold. Since I was staying at HI Quebec – Auberge

Ice Castle and Ice Sculptures

Last weekend, I went to Quebec City for the last weekend of its annual Winter Carnaval. I’m glad I did–despite the freezing winter that almost made my cheeks as hard as a stone. I’ve never experienced such coldness before and I don’t think I’d be going back to Quebec City

Zombie Walk Toronto 2014 Photos – Part 1

Both the living and the dead came to join the Zombie Walk Toronto 2014 Parade that started at Nathan Phillips Square in the city’s downtown. As usual, bloody and decaying zombies woke up to terrorize the shit out of the living parade watchers. Even the commuters sitting within the comfort of

Fall Colours in Crothers Woods

The fall colors in Crothers Woods in Toronto didn’t disappoint me. When the sun showed up after lunchtime today, a friend and I went for a hike for two hours there. Well, not exactly two hours of hiking; 45 minutes of that were spent in camwhoring. We were worried the

Fall Colours in Mono Cliffs

It’s that time of the year again when you fall in love with Canada—especially when you’re in close encounter with the fall colours in Mono Cliffs. There are many places in Ontario where you can drive by, hike or walk to admire fall foliage. Last weekend, a friend brought me

Nuit Blanche Toronto 2014-Walk Among The Worlds

Here are some of the photos of Nuit Blanche Toronto 2014-Walk Among The Worlds installation. We didn’t really explore so many art installations last night, except the ones along Spadina Road and nearby streets/alleys. We started at almost midnight and was back home around 5:30 in the morning. Going inside

The World’s Smallest Island Has Only One Residence

This is, perhaps, the world’s smallest island that only one residence can fit on it. This island is found at The Thousand Islands in Ganonoque, Kingston, Ontario. As you can see, the house is really surrounded by water and there’s not even a backyard enough for playing with your kids. The

My first Kayak Experience

Last weekend, I had my first kayak experience at Kelso Lake for an hour. I paddled across the lake in a single kayak (see more here: https://www.globosurfer.com/best-sit-top-kayaks/)  and boy, it was easier than I thought! But, I must admit, I bumped my kayak into tree branches on the shore because

Photos: Scotiabank Caribbean Festival 2014 Caribana Toronto

It’s a festival called with two names: Caribana Festival (the old one) and Scotiabank Caribbean Carnival (the new one). For most people, the former is better-sounding than the latter that bears its sponsor’s name. Caribana, aka Scotiabank Caribbean Festival 2014 is no different from the past: disorganized. The first time

World Pride Dyke March

Yesterday’s World Pride Dyke March turned out to be the most participated Dyke March in my 4 years of covering it. It’s louder this year and the march route is longer (I think). I’ve never seen so many lesbians in my life before and this year is record-breaking. And as

Drooling at the Underwear Show

Cafe California’s annual Pride tradition of showing off sexy underwears and spilling out muscled flesh onto Church Street never failed to get someone a boner. No, it wasn’t me. I overheard it from the guy standing behind me who told his two friends that they laughed hard and looked down

Canada Has The Gayest Currency In The World

I was counting my cash two hours ago and realized that Canada’s new bill currencies made of polymer are so gay. Like, they glow rainbow in the dark. They’re light but durable and so faaaabulous! Oh yeah, Canada has the gayest money in the world! Though it lacks two more
