Albion Falls Hamilton, Ontario.

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 later—and don’t litter. And PLEASE, […]

Lavender Farm in Milton, Ontario.

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 it turned out it wasn’t […]

Toronto City Hall Has A New Look

Toronto City Hall Has A New Look

Well, the new look doesn’t involve a massive, expensive renovation nor red paint. All they had to do was put up a multi-coloured sign that spells the city’s name. I reckon that the various colours stand for the city’s multi-cultural communities. However, the neon-coloured sign won’t be there long enough. It will be removed after […]

2015 Humans of Toronto Trans March

Humans of Toronto Trans March 2015

Inspired by Humans of New York, I set my own agenda for the day: to photograph the Trans of Toronto Trans March. I’m not really good at starting conversations, so, instead of asking them directly, I asked them to pick one question from my camera bag. It’s like an extemporaneous speech but I told them […]

These murals on the pillars of Gardiner Expressway is a brilliant idea of turning urban spaces into creative pursuits. / Underpass Park in Toronto.

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 going on when he was […]

Nick Jonas Arrived in Style at MMVA 2015

Nick Jonas arrived in style at MMVA 2015 red carpet in Toronto yesterday, driving an open, red classic cadillac. He’s sure hot as a fire in hell. Boy, I was the only one who recognized him while he was ushered by security guards. There were around 50 people or so standing at the corner of […]

Last weekend, I was booked in jail in Ottawa. I committed no crime but I was locked up for two nights—without bail. It’s an odd thing, right? I was handed out a key to my cell, some white bed sheets, and a fresh towel. No burly, intimidating police or guards led me up to my […]

Tulip Festival in Ottawa - Gatineau is on May 8-18, 2015.

The Tulip Festival in Ottawa is a Dazzling Show of Colours

The Tulip Festival in Ottawa is a dazzling show of colours, a feast to the eyes. When Tulips are in bloom, you can’t go back to winter anymore. In fact, when I was in Ottawa last weekend, it felt like summer already. Yes, there are many people out there but will that deter you from […]

Frozen Niagara Falls Cascades Rainbow at Night.

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 romantic (it’s cold, so hugging/smooching […]

Ice Hotel / Hotel de Glace in Quebec City.

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,  I’ll skip that for now. […]
