Happy Holidays!

Here's a little origami meat/Christmas "dinner" surprise left on my desk at work from a fellow co-worker....

And here is Melinda Josie's beautiful snowman (snowbird?) for Torontoland...

Colourful Weekend

The weekend started with The Sound of Music sing-a-long at the TIFF Lightbox.....

and ended with sharing the tastiest macarons in the city with my bestest friend....

Norwegian Christmas Ball - Albany Club

The other week, I got to attend the loveliest dinner and met even lovelier people.

I also got to bring home the following donated books as a souvenir:

Tusen takk, Norskeklubben!  Jeg elsker "Så går vi rundt om en enebærbusk"! ;D

HK Bound

I really need to finish planning what I'm going to be doing while I'm visiting Hong Kong, as I'm leaving in 2 weeks! :S
However, like every vacation, sooo many things have to happen before leaving.....

Please let me know if you have any recommendations for Hong Kong!
Many, many thanks in advance! ;)

Christmas Fair -- Distillery, Toronto

The other week, I took a chilly bike ride over to the annual Christmas Fair at the Distillery...

I enjoyed a typical Canadian snack....

Also had cinnamon pecans that were still hot from the roaster...mmmm....

Then, before I left, I had to bid "adieu" to the reindeer(s)...

Busy Busy December!

I suppose it's that time of year where the calendar gets filled up to the brim with Christmas parties, shopping for presents, work obligations, and catching up with friends before the holidays....which means less time for sleeping, painting, taking pictures, and for blogging, I'm afraid. :S

Anyhoo, here's one of my last analog shots from my trip uploaded onto Flickr.
Our flight was treated to a lovely view of Greenland en route home from London:

Greenland 2

Hope you are having a nice December!

Grant Museum of Zoology - London, England

This was just around the corner from Pollock's Toy Museum....

If you click on the first picture for a larger view, you just might find a few human skeletons casually hanging out over the railing on the 2nd floor towards the back.;)

Tack Famapa!

While I was in London, I was lucky enough to spend a few days hanging out with lovely lady F, who not only takes beautiful photos and keeps a wonderful blog, but also has a wicked sense of humour, and has great taste in food and shops.  I had a great time exploring the Tate Modern, the Hunterian Museum and the V&A Museum with her, and also having fika at the Nordic Bakery and delicious tacos at Wahaca (I still dream of those steak tacos to this day....*drool*).

Here's a combination of digital and (some blurry) film shots captured.....

Tack så mycket igen for being so kind and gracious dearest F! :***  xoxo
