We are pretty liking it here in Canada. Lalo na si Anika, ayaw na umuwi.
We caught summer so it was warm but not humid. Ang sarap maglakad lakad under the sun. Yun lang, you will not notice na nasusunog ka na. So I’m so tan already. Tan and fat. Hahaha!
It’s also so clean here. Like everywhere.
Everybody’s so disciplined too. Walang nagoover speeding. All cars stop for the pedestrians. All cars stop at intersections.
There are tissue paper rolls in all toilets.
Everybody is nice. I’ve never come across a stranger na antipatika or a sales person na unhelpful. They help you even if you don’t ask for it.
Food here is so good. Tim Horton is masarap. I hope they’ll open a store in Manila. Makakalaban nila ang Starbucks there. The servings of the food here is so big. Alvin, Anika and I share one order lang. Hindi sa nagtitipid but nasasayang ang food if we order separately. Ang strawberries dito are a different breed. Ang lalaki and sweet. Anika loves eating them. She eats cereals with milk and strawberries every morning. I hope she gains weight here.
I will not even start about the shopping. Wasakan ng wallet dito in the outlet stores, guys. I called Wowa na for back up just in case. Hahahaha! Best in support naman ang lola niyo. San daw niya ipapadala yung pera. Hahahaha! Enabler na enabler talaga basta shopping!
Anyway, one of the nice restaurants we’ve been to is the Marche Restaurant in Toronto.
It is inside this beautiful building.
From their website:
Marché is a marketplace-style restaurant located inside Brookfield place in downtown Toronto with a dedication to freshness, home-made recipes, and “on the spot” preparation of seasonal and regional products – an experience for all of your senses.
Featuring 8 unique food stations, including Italian, Asian, Grill, Seafood, Green Island, Fruit Island, Beverage Bar, and a Café, there is something to please everyone.
Ang cool sa restaurant na yan, mga muthers.
When you enter, they give you a “credit card” like card. Wala pang bayad. You go around and get food. Parang food court. Whenever you get food, you will hand that card to the person. Isa-swipe niya yun. Then after eating, before you go out of the restaurant, you will hand the card to the cashier, saka ka magbabayad.
Astig ang concept di ba?
Here are the photos of the food there.
Wait. I suddenly remember now.
Parang Todd’s English Food Hall itey. Self service nga lang in Marche.
Try it here when you’re in Toronto =)
