The ROM



Daniel and I received complementary tickets to the Royal Ontario Museum a few weeks ago!! I seriously can't believe it was my first time visiting this place. Daniel said he has been here when he was younger but he couldn't recall any of the stuff we saw together!



If you visit a touristy place and they have coat check, I encourage you to take advantage of that!! It makes life so much easier when you're travelling light.



There was so many exciting things to see and photos to take! The museum was a whole lot bigger inside than I initially thought. Like just when we thought we were done exploring, we discovered the staircase and elevator to go up! LOL



We also didn't grab a map at the front desk, so likeee... that would've been really handy! LOL



It was fun roaming in and out of the exhibitions and galleries! As I was going through my photos, I didn't realize how many photos I had of buddha statues and murals!?!?!



As I've mentioned before, the great thing about dating a photographer is that I have double the amount of photos to choose from for my blog! Well.. that's what I used to think....



I thought Daniel would have taken lots of photos of the museum but he took more photos of ME taking photos!!! Like wow.. even in a room full of art.. he still stares at me! (I totally took this off somewhere. Hahaha) And then his camera died when we haven't made it to the second floor yet! Like BOY!!! Whyyy!!! LOL



My favourite collection was definitely the "Earth's Treasures!" I still can't believe there are so many beautiful minerals and rocks found on our earth. I tried taking photos of my favourite gems but my camera did not do any justice for them! You just have to check it out in real life and stare at them while they do the *glistening* thing they like to do.



Here's one (out of the 30 something photos I took) of the buddhas... :)




I like to call this pose the, "Are you done yettttt Daniel?" LOL




Daniel thinks these boots were the prototypes for Uggs! LOL



What I find super fascinating about the artwork below is that if you take a close look, you would see that it was created out of BEADS! Cray crayyy.



Oh yaaa, what I also enjoyed about this museum is that it gave me lots of ideas on what to ask Daniel for Christmas! I told him he could either get me this coin below...



or possibly this shiny diamond...



... OR MAYBE EVEN THESE GOLD ENCRUSTED FROSTED FLAKES!!! :)



Daniel's expression in the photo below was literally my face every time I gave him a gift suggestion! LOL



See y'all next week for another Tuesday update!!! By the way, if you haven't watched Zootopia yet, I definitely recommend! So good. :)
