Still the Apple of My Eye

Daniel and I went apple picking for the first time last year! We had so much fun that we decided to make it our annual tradition. 😀

We visited the same farm this year, because we found that the prices were reasonable, apples stayed crisp for a while, place wasn't overly crowded and drive wasn't bad!

We went a little earlier this season because we wanted to take advantage of the warm weather! Plus, we thought that they would have a wider selection for us to choose from!

And they did! We got to try Macintosh, Cortland and Ginger Gold apples this year.

When we came last time, Honeycrisp and Royal Gala apples were the only ones left for us to pick. To be honest, I didn't even know the names of all of these apples until I started visiting this farm. 😄

After trying all of these apples, I still don't know which type is my favourite. What I do know is that butter tarts will always have a special place in my heart.

Oh! Daniel too. 😋

Too Cute to Eat

When Monica told me that she has never tried Indian roti before, I knew I had to take her to one of my favourite spots! Since this restaurant was also near one of my favourite macaron shops, I knew I had to take her there too! 😀

We thought it was a bit too early to eat dinner, so we went to get macarons first. It was so hard having to eat these little treats. I'm not talking about the texture here, but the cuteness! Oh who am I kidding.. we actually devoured each one in two bites!! 😄 We really liked the flavour of the Winnie the Pooh one!

For some reason, I just assumed that if they're this cute, they wouldn't taste as good. (It's like cake fondant. I don't know anyone who actually likes the flavour of that?!) I'm still surprised by how tasty these macarons are. They're just the right amount of chewiness!

After we devoured these babies, we went to pick up our Indian food. We took advantage of the nice weather and had a picnic in front of Casa Loma! So peaceful and scenic.

And we obviously couldn't end our day without grabbing bubble tea too. 😏

I Got a New Camera!

After 19 years of school, it feels a bit weird knowing that Labour Day doesn't mean anything anymore. I remember I used to get butterflies or felt bummed about going back to school the next day. It really felt like my life was on pause whenever classes were in session. 😢

Now that summer is over, I realized that my routine isn't going to change! No more reading textbooks, doing assignments or studying for exams... and I am super ok with that!!! 😀

It honestly wouldn't feel like summer is ending, if I didn't pay a visit to CNE with Daniel! This year, we went with Alpha and Dillon! Funny thing is, Alpha texted me asking if we wanted to join them, while I messaged her on Facebook asking if they wanted to join us! It was a very last minute plan, which is why I coincidentally wore the same outfit when I went a year ago. 😢

Daniel and I got there before them, and played games while we waited. I somehow convinced Daniel to wait in line for 40 minutes with me to get a free bottle of ketchup with our FACES on it!!! I'm going to use this bottle and pour new ketchup in it every time I run out. I know y'all are judging me but I KNOW YOU WOULD DO THE SAME!!! Don't lie!

There were two games that Daniel couldn't get enough of. It was this bottle up game and basketball shooting game. He told me that he could careless about winning a toy and just wanted to know that he could actually do it.

He ended up not getting me any toys this year, but I was able to win myself TWO toys!!! Who needs a boyfriend, am I RIIII? Just kidding! 💞

I'm still shocked that I won a giraffe for my niece! I only had 1 in 24 chances to win this dice rolling game, and I somehow chose the winning number!!! 😄

I also won a Captain America toy by tossing a ball in a basket. Luck was clearly on my side that night! Dillon also got Alpha a Spiderman with this game and Alpha won a toy by herself with the water gun game!

Since Daniel has been winning me a toy every year, I gave him my Captain America! 😄 He'll always be a winner to meee!

I actually shot all these photos on my work camera, the Sony a7R II, because I wanted to carry something smaller and lighter. It took me a while to figure out how to work this thing, but I'm quite impressed with the quality! You'll definitely be seeing more photos from this camera. 😎
