I haven’t written about a restaurant for a while, but last night I ventured out to Leslieville (my favourite neighbourhood for the past 4 years), and visited Hanoi 3 Seasons again, and had to spread the good word.

This is an awesome restaurant! it’s a small tiny place on Queen St West near Shaw, across from the Candy Lofts. Here’s an exact map of it.

Despite my earlier reluctance about MSN’s Web2.0 offerings, I decided to try out their new Live Local after reading so many good things about it (particularly on Farhan Thawar’s blog).

My goal was to place all of my Restaurants into a list that can be displayed on a map. I was actually pleasantly surprised

Porter me away!

Categories: Exploring the World, Toronto

I just took a flight on Porter Airways from Toronto City Airport to Ottawa – it was amazing! The service was great – it was easy – none of the crowds that you get at Pearson. The cost was great. The terminal at City Airport has been re done so that it compares to being … Read More
