Festival Du Voyageur

Finally, after missing out last year I was able to join in Winnipeg’s winter festival called the Festival Du Voyageur (Festival of the Travellers). It is held every winter to celebrate the country’s fur trading history and the French culture. It was a gloomy Saturday morning – I was somewhat upset because based on the […]

The Folklorama Experience

It’s this time of the year again when Folklorama invades Winnipeg! For the uninitiated, Folklorama is a summer festival held for two weeks here in Winnipeg where people from different cultures and backgrounds present their unique heritage by holding cultural exhibits, cuisine and performing their local songs and dance in their respective pavilions. It is […]

Happy Canada Day!

Photo Credit: Dan Harper Happy 145th Birthday Canada! It’s my second time celebrating Canada Day, and similar to last year, I joined Winnipeg’s second Living Flag event activity.

Red River Exhibition 2012

Yesterday was the second time I attended the famous Red River Exhibition (known as The Ex), an annual mobile amusement fair that is held here in Winnipeg every June. Our visit this year wasn’t as long as the one we had last year but it was more fun. I went with Piya and her cousins […]

WTF UPS!

Allow me to post this rant about my latest order online with Amazon and UPS.

Field Trip to Lockport

Now that summer is fast approaching, it’s the time of the year when the weather is warm enough for people to get out once again – and so we did. If last Friday was all about eating, this time it’s about exploring some of the hidden places with sights and sounds that Uncle Johnny Canuck […]

Foodtrip Friday

I missed these days so much! 😀 I think it has been a few months since my friends and I went out and indulge ourselves to eat foods of our liking. We often invade local buffets for American, Chinese, Korean and Japanese food. Tonight we finally agreed on emptying our stomachs for the rest of […]

An Adoptee’s Letter

Dear Uncle Johnny Canuck, It’s been a year since you took me in for adoption. Since then, my life has completely turned around. During the first few days, I was still hesitant to open myself up. But you never budged, you kept on reaching out your hand for me, until you completely captivated me and […]

21 Days

Yes, it’s twenty-one more days and I’m celebrating my first year here in Canada! Okay, actually I’ve been here before in 2010, but I only stayed for three months so I didn’t consider my first stay because it was just a mere vacation unlike now. I still can’t quite believe that it’s going to be […]
