I totally went off topic...sorry...back to yesterday...
After The food show, went to High Park. It was the influence of so many pictures on facebook i saw of people going that made me want to join in with the crowd. we got lucky and found a parking spot in less than 10 minutes, we had to walk for quite some time though. Yesterday's weather was beautiful, so it made walking in the park even better. There were lots of people, as expected but i wish the cherry blossoms were more vibrant. There were still quite a lot left but i can tell that any time now they will all fall out, i wish i went a week or two earler, it would have looked so much fuller and pink-er.
We also got a chance to go to High park's mini zoo. we saw buffalo's, lots of lamb, emu's, elk's and peacocks. The peacocks were funny. One of them opened their pretty tail and the crowed went wild! Everyone was wow-ing and the peacock got a little cocky, this was until another one opened up their tail and in the end six of them opened it up and were all flaunting it like a fashion show. It was a amazing!
After that we left because it was getting cold. I spent the morning cutting up bagels into tiny tiny bits to feed ducks and birds, but was not able to locate many in the pond, so that went to waste. Maybe if i get off early one day this week, i will go to Milken park and feed the ducks there by the pond, before it expires.
We stopped at Greek town for dinner, we went to Pan on danforth. It's a nice little restaurant, a bit small but nice. Wanted to get the three course meal but we were still pretty full from the good food show. Yes, we ate THAT much! I ordered chicken and Jacky ordered his lamb shank. It was good, my chicken was a little hard though.
They also had Belly dancing during dinner. That girl was dancing in front of me, and made me kind of blushy haha. Not because I'm attracted to her lol, because that hip and shake! Whoa!
Not the best picture in the world, but you get the gist of it.
And finally, after dinner we went to Demetre's that was just down the street for desert. We ordered a banana split with mint chocolate chip ice cream, tiramisu ice cream and strawberry ice cream. I liked the mint chocolate chip ice cream the most, but the tiramisu tasted a lot more like cookie dough than anything else...we stayed there for quite some time, just chatting and eating. It was a good and eventful day, i wish i had more Saturday's off.
The DVP was closed for the day so we had to take local home. It was late and he spotted a metro on the way, we went to browse around since it opens 24hrs. My first time going into a Metro, it wasn't anything special, but i like the fact that they take air miles. I still need to go to loblaws one day and apply for a PC mastercard, i want to start collecting points!
Looking forward to more warm days!
