How I spend my Canada 150th.   Long weekend. June 29- July 3

July 3.. Finale 

We enjoyed the #torontoribfestival with my daughter.  Crap we missed taking the pic of the ribs.. somebody ate it off too fast

#jackinthebone ribs and chicken was #yummy 

We all left Centennial park and my daughter ditched us. There was still time before fire works so we wanted made a quick stop by #redpathfestival to take a quick tour bit that ended by the time we got there so we strolled over Toronto Harbour (Toronto Island airport) and relaxed for a bit.  Just watching the airplanes land and take off is always one of those simple yet fun things to do. Admiring and enjoying the beautiful #cityoftoronto is always a treat in itself. 

July 2..Family #soulfoodsunday must be maintained at all times..

After the family feast we headed  to the #canadareggaefestival in Brampton. The  MC and Promoter convienently disappeared only to have the DJ announced that due to unfulfilled financial obligations by the promoter, the main act will not be performing. Much to the dismay of patiently waiting patrons, this has happened one time too many. It would have been more appreciated if the patrons knew in advance so they can decide to stay and enjoy the existing acts or leave. Is this a matter due to ill prepared or inexperienced promoters?  U decide!

We decided to have our very own amateur talent show in the parking lot

July1-July3. .#canada150 

My first stop after my errands today was to #chinguacousypark in Brampton for the big celebrations. It was a full house with a sea of red and white. It was quite amazing and refreshing to see everyone in such high spirit and a sense of pride for both young and old. Such pride that even the city truck is sporting a flag..

I headed off to a family friend to finish off this # canada 150. I was also decked out in my red n white .. #familytime

Taking a stroll and enjoying a bit of the jazz festival in Yorkville.. sights, sounds and ambience.

Having a bite to fill the hunger gap. . In my very own garden .

What’s happening in the Tdot! (This Month)

Month: February

Winter season, on an average, is not what most of us enjoy . However, there are still a few interesting things that can keep you busy. Here are just a few things that you will find interesting.

Winterlicious: Jan 27-Feb 9.  Anything to do where I can get food & Wine, I am all game. Winterlicious is the opportunity to actual venture in restaurants that you probably would not have gone to or think of trying. During Winterlicious, it somehow gives the notion of affordability. So, if you haven’t participated in this before, check out it and let me hear your thoughts, we would love to hear about where you went and your experience.
