previously i wrote about the cost of living and metrics in other cities recently, i’ve been seeing other articles about it and it got me thinking about other indexes and ways of measuring cost of living – one of the most common indexes is the burgernomics metric that the Economist puts out. The argument is … Read More

man – i was excited to go to this place – a conveyor belt sushi bar (kaiten-sushi)!  Toronto finally has an establishment which took over other parts of the world in the 90s… Well unfortunately in this case, late is definitely last…i gotta say – this place is pretty bad.  first to start off with, the atmosphere was … Read More

Fish ‘n Chips and Vinegar, Vinegar, Vinegar…

Categories: Restaurants, Toronto

Shocking to some i’m sure, but I confess that I actually miss london loads. i miss the buzz, the crowds on the streets, the indulgence of excess in nearly everything, and sadly even the general indifference towards poor service…

as most of my friends know, i’m a glutton for food… I love trying new foods, going to new restaurants, and sampling new cuisines .. and i don’t mean to sample by foraying into the ‘hip and trendy, IT spot for this month’ type restaurants, but restaurants that…

Toronto’s free downtown wi-fi – www.onezone.ca – has been live for about a month – but i’m only using it for the first time now.

It stared Pierce Bronson and Liam … Read More

TIFF 2006 Movie: The Namesake

Categories: India, Movies, Toronto

Rating: 9/10 When I was backpacking around India earlier this year, a lot of people told me to read The Namesake but being the lazy guy that I am, I didn’t want to carry the extra weight (the book probably weighs over a pound if not two…). So when we went to go see this … Read More
