Vendor Feature: Koreana

This was a recently opened Korean cuisine restaurant. I was lucky enough to recieve a gift certificate to try their food.

Who Is Koreana?

1) When and why did they open this restaurant?

We opened on June 16, 2022.

2) What is special about this business?


As a Korean person, honestly I think the food is very good. It’s a very authentic Korean cuisine and we do have some Korean dishes that’s not found in other Korean restaurants (such as Spicy Braised Monkfish, Seafood Kalguksu.)

3) What else do you want to share?
We have a nice and spacious patio, well-price liquors (beers, soju and makgeolli), variety of Korean dishes and snacks for drinking.

Check them out!

Movie Review: Top Gun (Maverick)

Summary

After being dismissed from his position in the testing department of the navy, he was sent to go back to Top Gun. Despite proving his amazing ability to push the limits of the newest fighter planes, he had this habit of ignoring senior instructions and do what he believed was correct. That was why after thirty years in the navy, he was still just a captain, while pilots of his generation advanced in their careers.

When he was told that he was to be the instructor to a group of top pilots preparing for a dangerous mission, he was shocked to see his former wingman’s son, Rooster, on the list. He was not ready….

Conclusion

The flying scenes with the dives and speed was exhilarating! Every time they fired their engines, you could feel the chairs shake! The twists in the storyline surprised me.

Netflix Movie: The Man From Toronto

Summary

Teddy was fired from his marketing position at a fitness centre. He decided not to let his wife know about another failure in his career. Instead, he booked a cabin for her birthday. However, due to a low toner situation, he couldn’t see the address clear enough on the booking sheet. So, he dropped her off at a spa and went to search for the cabin.

Unfortunately, this cabin was meant for a meeting between assassins! He became entangled in an international situation with an assassin named The Man From Toronto.

Now, what about his marriage?!

Conclusion

I was laughing at the humorous antics and enjoying the explosions! I liked the friendship and marriage storyline.

Have you had Taiwanese street food?

Many years ago, I was travelling in Taiwan and the street food selections were so abundant! I didn’t even bother to look for restaurants.

Hence, I was very excited to be invited to CHJ Bistro to savour their menu! Thank you!

Who is CHJ Bistro?

  1. Why did your start your business? First of all, I loved to eat since I was young! As I grew older, I found out I like to cook and was sensitive to flavor. My family give me a lot good feedback and motivation. That was when I want to share my food to others.
  2. What was your background? I’m from Taiwan. We have shipping family business. I was studying in Canada and went back Taiwan to work. However, I loved Canada’s kind and friendly environment. That’s why I came Canada again and start my family here.
  3. What is special about your restaurant? We serve Taiwan street food. We combine it with my experience from different restaurants and chefs. Our restaurant name means “testing good” in Taiwanese and the characters’ meaning is my family name and ‘crane’. This is because I want my food to honor my family name and same as crane (big/ elegant/ clean)
  4. What else do you want to share? Love & peace ✌️

Recently, I was in charge of decorating for a primary school event. I wasn’t sure what I was going to do for decorations. Finally, I decided to purchase a balloon kit online. With the help of many parent volunteers, we were able to make a beautiful balloon arch!

Team work!

Happy Hour Oysters

Oysters from Kamei On Broadway

One of my favourite happy hour appetizers are fresh shucked oysters. There are many types of oysters and they all taste quite different.

When I travelled to the Atlantic, I tried their oysters there. They were more salty than the Pacific ones that I normally ate, which was very interesting!

Do you like oysters?

One of my favourite Sanrio characters was Keroppi! This little frog was part of my childhood and teenage years. I had all the stationary! Almost all of my doodles were this character.

So, when I saw this Hot Wheel recently, I was in love!
