Think Dating in Toronto is Scary? Try Legends of Horror at Casa Loma!

Legends of Horror Last night, Siren Communications and Liberty Entertainment Group invited me to a massive media event and party! This event was a little bit different than the luxurious, sophisticated events they normally throw. Well, at least in the beginning! Legends of Horror is a trip to Casa Loma like no other. With the…

Escapism Has Landed: EscapismTO’s Launch @ Assembly Chef’s Hall

Escapism Toronto Launch Party Well, beaches, I’m back in Toronto after 3 years Seoulcialiting it up in Korea.  Over 1,000 days have gone by, but the agency launch parties haven’t changed a bit.  Most of the faces look the same and the dress-code of hobo-chic vs. try-hards continues to identify who is on the list…

Nampo-dong and Jagalchi Market

Last Sunday’s start was a bit confusing!   Like the picture above (taken outside exit 4 of Nampo Station), there were many directions we could have taken to meet our friends in the “shopping district” of Busan, Nampo-dong.  I snapped that photo just as we had exited to street level and was excited to see…

Peace out, Pearson!

With an hour and 20 minutes until boarding this feels entirely too surreal.  In the car ride over I had all these terrible feelings that something bad might happen, but really it’s all been pretty smooth sailing thus far.  I woke up at 3:30 AM and figured I should probably put a face on.  Not…

The Bucket List

When I was 9 and Encyclopedia Britannica was still a thing, my Mom was living in California and my Dad was traveling a lot for work and the only thing I really could look forward to were our trips.  When we had visited Disneyland enough (in my Mom’s eyes – there will never be enough public…

An unexpectedly Korean night in Toronto

Last year I was fortunate enough to have been given tickets to one of Toronto’s most successful charity galas: Motionball.  When I found out that they were looking for volunteers this year I thought I should probably step up to the plate and give back a little.  I was a day of event manager for…

30 days and counting

There is officially less than a month until I leave Toronto to go stay with my parents in Port Hope in the days leading up to my departure.  Ladies and Gentlemen, yesterday I received a lovely little email reminding me that Moksha Yoga missed me (because I haven’t practiced since March of 2014).  I had…

The Consulate

It’s funny how just as I’m leaving Canada for greener pastures Toronto all of a sudden starts trying to make it up to me.  The weather has improved, I’m working for a phenomenal company (where was this three years ago?!), my friends are all super supportive and are making time for me before I leave…
