A special birdy-day

So before we celebrate xmas holidays we first have a birdy-day for my now eleven years old Jupinxter. So far she’s been having great anxiety of what she wants to do for her big-day.  Finally, she thought of just a low key family dinner. So Red Lobster we all went and enjoyed our time. 

The timing was right when we arrived. There was no waiting to be seated. Of course we had a closed quartered area of 4 groups of party tables and 2 booths. We had it good. The family we sat next to were preparing to leave, so we were left the only table for about 10 minutes until elderly couples were seated behind us in one of the small booths. 

We all had fun and our meal was delicious, as always.

Her birdy meal- Ultimate Feast Platter. She did finish it all as well 😀

My Admirals Feast, truly scrumptious.

Her one favourite treat, lava cake & ice cream 😀🌟

Brother’s favourite popcorn shrimp meal

It truly was a great day and dinner with family. A fabulous surprise for the birthday girl to have dad home in time for her birthday dinner and holiday. Leaving again day after xmas.

We’ve managed this few months just ok. Today truly was splendid and kids had no idea dad was home for 5 days in time for the holiday. Though he was still away, it was a great surprise. 

Not only that, the couple behind us secretly paid $50 of our bill. It truly was unexpected and we were so elated. Grams took our group photo and they were so gracious to have done such wonderful deed and gift to my Jupinxter. They sang happy birthday song with us and greeted & wished her a fun-filled birthday! I truly wished we took down their names so we can keep in touch with these lovely couple 😀

Happy Birthday Jupinxter!

Invicta – Swiss Made Watches

Really late upload for April 2016

“what a beautiful day it’s going to be…my first thought as I opened  my eyes and saw the sun rays through the blinds this morning.”

Indeed it was a splendid day. I took the kids out for a drive and enjoyed the scenery. It’s been months since we had a great time outdoors due to weather. Today we took advantage of that. Just us three.

As the children grew restless, I took them shopping. Clothes, shoes, toys and more stuff to add to their clutter of junk in their rooms. They were happy nonetheless. That’s all that matters to me. Finally, it was time to go home.

Later that night, I perused online. I searched for the “best affordable swiss watches” and I landed on “Invicta Watches” website.  I was totally amazed how gorgeous these watches are. I read a lot of reviews and they are really good and comparable to those watches that are super expensive. I read on more and the more I want this watch.

The next day I went to Costco to renew my membership and there I went to peruse their jewelry aisle. Truly surprised to see a couple of invicta watches. I checked it out and was happy to come home with it. I bought it for the Man unfortunately. So now I will be buying mine online, sadly.

Here is the Man’s watch I came home with from Costco. Unfortunately, this watch is too big for my tiny wrist.

Finally, after three days of waiting, my first Invicta watch came in the mail. Here is a mother of pearl face plate in a divers watch. Yes! I bought the Sub Aqua divers watch. I am truly happy. I didn’t stop here.

I bought another men’s Invicta watch. This here is the Sea Hunter Sub Aqua. The Man is super stoked he’s getting all these expensive watches. He never imagined someone would spend this much money on a pair of watch for him.

I bought another Invicta for me. I made sure they are at least 300 meters deep. I tend to just jump in the pool or beach with my watch on. Lucky for me this one’s 1000 meters. I love this watch so much.

Here’s the face. Though it’s simple but I’m telling you, it’s a good investment mates. This one’s from the reserve line.

I didn’t stop here maties. So far I have eight of these watches. I am still in the market for these beauties. They all can be worn with formal clothing or casual. They are really thoughtfully made.

How bout you? What’s your weakness?

…riding the train

A late upload

It’s been a long time since I’ve taken the public transport. Here in the city, it’s a blessing to have as many choices of any public transport that fits your needs. Trains, buses, taxi-cabs, uber and so much more. For about a month now, I have been riding the public transport. There were reasons why I try and stay away from using these amenities. 

First, I’m a total germophobe..I don’t like touching anything or be in places where other people left their dirty prints on or has parked their booties on. I don’t know where they’ve been or what they’ve been handling and sitting right next to them isn’t a good idea for me.

Second, I don’t like the idea of being too close to someone for that amount of time. I don’t like to hear them breathe, feel their warmth or smell them either. It’s enough I have to deal with meself.

Last, I really don’t like the way people smell..either too much perfumery can trigger my allergies and I am left to struggle the rest of the day or a gagging body odour, that would make me want to jump out of the train for some clean air, I can’t find unless I’m in a virgin island. 

Today however, I will enjoy this ride. It’s a beautiful day and I have chosen to ride the latest train. There’s less people to deal with and there’s plenty of room to sit anywhere.

How bout you? When was the last time you’ve taken the public transport?

Thank you for stopping by everyone. Have a splendid weekend.

Niagra Falls NY

September 4, 2016

Chicken Wing Festival

          My cousin Rhea and I planned to go to this festival months before my family and I moved here. We thought since most people are off during labour day weekend, we will stay the night in Buffalo NY. Luckily, we made all reservations and had time to check out Niagra falls at night. Unfortunately, we didn’t get to see its grandeur in the day time. Perhaps one day when we visit or drive up this way again.

          We drove through fields of corn on both sides of the road. I have never seen a lot of cornfields in my life. Eventhough it was exhausting because of the heat, I was enjoying the two-hour drive. I was able to appreciate the beauty and simplicity of these small towns. We cruised down this main road and it was dedicated to the Veterans who fought for this country. I was truly in awe. There was a small cul-de-sac where the US flag and various military flags stood and happily waving to passers-by. Then, just as quickly we entered, so was our exit.

          Finally, we made it to our destination. My dear Greek Gods. I have never been in a stadium full of vendors serving all kinds of spiciness.

It was too hot I couldn’t even get a good picture-

Yes, Booty’s was one of the winners last year.

We didn’t stay long. Just enough to try out these buffalo wings. 

Here is a beautiful building. Somewhere downtown Buffalo NY. Justice building. I truly love the design and architecture of this lovely building.

          Sure enough we found our hotel, twenty minutes to Niagra Falls. I can’t hardly wait. I was bored while waiting for the rest of my company so my kids and hubby perused outside. Well, more than that actually. We had a late lunch.

Here’s the right ride-

Here’s the left side-

Both buildings serves as student apartments and loft for those who work away from home. This place is truly nice and comfortable and really affordable too.

We decided the In and Out Pasta for Supper. This is a delicious pasta. Cheese tortellini with mushroom, tomatoes, chicken and pesto sauce.

          Lastly, here is Niagra Falls at night. Beautiful and colourful. Truly amazing.

Thank you everyone for stopping by.

Yes! Just like that my car was booted tonight. My husband, son and meself went out for a date. We tried this new restaurant for dinner by our house and catch a film.

Surprisingly, when we came out of the theatre, there’s this car that rolled back into the two cars behind it in the parking lot. As we walked closer to where my car was parked I realized, this gold Nissan car booted my car and the car that’s’ parked on the left of me. I couldn’t believe it. The security man was walking up to where the car rolled back into. He must’ve heard me because he turned back to look at us. I was gettin furious


This is the culprit-

So I left a note & mind you I never got a call. It blew me away, people are so undisciplined.


“Drivers, next time you come out of your car, do make sure you’ve put your e-brake on, put your car in park and turned off your engine to avoid rolling forward or backwards and hitting someone elses car or a passers by for that matter”
Thank you kindly-
