Paramount Liberty Village Tasting

When I heard that one of my favourite restaurants Paramount Fine Foods at Liberty Village was having a tasting, there was no way I couldn’t be there! With items like their famous hummus, manakeesh, and flavourful wraps, Paramount has a variety of Middle eastern flavours to satisfy every palate.

For the appetizer, I got my favourite item on the menu which is quite new, the Yalla Special, a dish with fries, topped with chicken shawarma, garlic sauce, and tahini sauce. All of the flavours combined make for the ultimate Lebanese poutine (minus the cheese).

Weekend Getaway: Winter in Grey County

Spring may be around the corner, but snow isn’t going anywhere, at least not for a little bit. Why not enjoy the crisp cold air and fluffy white snow? I spent a weekend exploring Grey County.

Disney’s Beauty and the Beast

There’s totally nothing wrong with being a full grown adult and loving Disney films. I’ve been eagerly awaiting Disney’s adaptation of Beauty and the Beast, and it’s finally here! I was lucky enough to enjoy a sneak peak of the film, and it’s everything I wanted. The opening sequence stays true to the original animation, and it’s lovely. All of the costumes are breathtaking, and I really liked the castle. There are a few original songs thrown in there that threw me for a loop, but (other than the Beast’s dramatic solo song) I didn’t mind.

There were some unexpected moments (I wasn’t expecting the much talked about gay scene, but I loved it, and the audience clapped and cheered when it came on the screen) and a few surprises. It was a funny and heartwarming film. One of the scenes that used to scare me as a child (when Belle runs into the woods and there are wolves) was actually scarier to me as animation than in the film. That being said, I’m a little bit older now as well, so that could also explain it.

If you haven’t seen it yet, go and check it out! It’s delightful, you’ll love it!

A Winter Sleigh Ride at Dual Acres

When people say that there’s nothing to do in the winter, it baffles me. There’s so much to do! Whether you stay in Toronto or go a bit further to neighboring regions, you can definitely find a way to enjoy the winter.

For me, one of my winter goals for the last few years has been to go on a sleigh ride. Last month, in Grey County, my sleigh ride dreams came true! (more…)
