Toronto Foodie – DUNK Burgers & Chocolate Restaurants

DUNK Burgers and Chocolate Last week we were invited to DUNK Burgers and Chocolate, a sweet little restaurant on Queen Street just West of Bathurst before you hit Trinity Bellwoods. It seems as though they still have a couple of service-related kinks to work through. I’d say, especially if you’ve imbibed on Canada’s latest legality,…

Jaymes White Spooks George Brown House at Séance

The Jaymes White Séance Experience On a dark and stormy night in Toronto, the first of it’s kind as a late summer bid us farewell, I attended the Jaymes White Beverly Street Séance.  This experience has been attended by media of all kinds in Toronto. The reviews have been spec- nay, spooktacular, to say the…

HideSeek – Not Just Another Happy Place!

Do It for the ‘Gram or Pure Unadulterated Fun? I honestly can’t keep up with all the selfie spots in our city because they’re popping up everywhere. When I was out of town celebrating Mother’s Day, there was a pop-up designed in one of the local malls completely copied from the Museum of Ice Cream….

The Perfect Stopover in Reykjavik, Iceland!

Next Stop: Reykjavik Can you believe I made it to Osaka, Shanghai, Bangkok, Phuket, Chiang Mai, Taipei, Tokyo, Kuala Lumpur, Singapore, Kota Kinabalu, Bali,  Orlando, and Korea (duh!) over the past 3 years? When I was in Korea, all I wanted was to escape the freezing temperatures and fly to warmer climates. Now that I’m in…

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!

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…

Expats in Korea – Seoulcialites: Anuj Madan

Expats in Korea: Seoulcialites Being an expat in Korea, we’re often pigeon-holed into 2 categories: Teacher or Military.  There are so many people doing original and interesting things in Seoul!  In this new series, I’d like to introduce you to some creative people I’ve been lucky to meet.  They may have started their professional journeys as…

Seoul Food: Guilty Pleasure

Brunch is an affair enjoyed at leisure with rich food and great company. In fact, one might say that Brunch is my most favourite guilty pleasure.

Jogyesa Temple – Lotus Lantern Weekend Part ii

Korean couples love to get dressed up and wander around the old, traditional towns, as well as the Palaces and the Temples. All this was amplified by the hoopla of Buddha’s Birthday Weekend which has been celebrated as a festival since the Unified Silla era over 1,300 years ago. Yep – he gets the whole weekend, the festival, the parade, and all the beautiful lantern displays at nearly every temple the month leading up to his birthday and for for many, the weeks beyond (at Jogyesa they’ll be around until May 22nd). I guess it’s like leaving your Christmas lights up on your front porch all year long, just a lot less honky-tonk and a lot more beautiful!

Candidly Kate: Feeling Seoul Unsettled

I know that I can’t do it all, but I want to. I’m trying to do it all. I want to soak up every last bit of this wonderful, diverse city, but I also feel like I’m riding a constantly moving merry go ’round and step back every time I’m about to get off.
