Hue’s Kitchen Brings Pan-Asian Delights

Cynthia Cheng Mintz Vietnamese Coffee If you like ordering food dim sum style (on slips rather than speaking with a server), but prefer pan-Asian cuisine rather than standard Hong Kong fare, look no further than Hue’s Kitchen.  A unique concept to the Yonge and Bloor area, this restaurant allows diners to pick and choose their […]

Australia’s Gorgeous Beaches

Tourism Australia There’s nothing like Australia’s beaches! Did you know that Australia’s coastline is linked by more than 10,000 beaches?  More than any other country in the world!

Online Shopping and GAP in Canada

When I heard that GAP was going to bring online shopping to Canada, I was excited.  Finally, I was able to purchase sizes that aren’t available in stores (namely XXSP from Banana Republic and petite sizes from Old Navy and GAP).   They also said that stores like Athleta and Piperlime would be available.   I was going […]

Organic, Vegan and FAST!

There’s a small restaurant on Hayden Street which serves organic vegan foods.  Open only during the work week, Camros is one of the few non-sitdown vegan-only restaurants in the city.  At my first ever visit there, I had their three item combo ($10.39 plus tax – can also choose from two or four items) which consisted […]
