When I was younger, I’d start every single Sunday morning with a Combo F from my favourite Hong Kong style cafe: macaroni and luncheon meat in soup, accompanied by a side dish of a ham omelette and two slices of buttered white bread. I followed a very specific set of steps when eating my breakfast. I’d cut the omelette in half, exposing the pink strands of ham, and transfer it to the bread, creating a sandwich. After eating my omelette sandwich, I’d finish up the omelette, and then move on to my macaroni. Finally, I’d wash it all down with a glass of iced lemon tea.Read More »
My beautiful, endless summer is making me lose my mind (in a good way), so please enjoy the strangest “restaurant review” I’ve ever written!Read More »
A few weekends ago, some friends and I decided to go to the Niagara area for a little day trip, so I thought I’d share some photos of our adventures! (One of the benefits of quarantine and the lack of travel this summer is that I’ve done lots of exploring right at home! And I’d never spent so much time outdoors before this year.)Read More »
Summer is starting to look slightly more normal now as patios and even dine-in services are being offered at restaurants. I’ve never been one for patios (nothing beats air conditioning during a hot Toronto summer!), but I feel much more comfortable and safe eating outdoors rather than cooped up inside, breathing the same air as everyone around me.Read More »
Several weeks ago, movements for Black lives and racial justice swept through our social media networks. While many people proclaimed solidarity with Black communities and denounced the overpolicing of Black bodies, the uproar seems to have died down a bit recently as other stories have hit the news cycle. Though people may not be as active and vocal online as they once were, I am hopeful that (offline and in the real world) people are still continuing to do the antiracism work that is necessary for racial equity in our communities.Read More »
Once or twice a week, I begrudgingly pull on a pair of shorts and a ratty old t-shirt, grab my phone and earbuds, and head out for a run with some friends.Read More »
Throughout the past few months of this pandemic, most everyone has become extremely acquainted with what exists between the four walls of their homes. I am so thankful for my little house that I share with Dangerous Dan! It has been the perfect space to transition to distance learning, to rediscover what it means to rest in God’s presence, and to wait out this global pandemic.
If you’re a regular reader of this blog, you’ll know that I love reading nonfiction books. I usually read memoirs, but I’ve been trying to branch out into straight-up history books. I find that it more interesting to learn about a historical event through an individual’s perspective and personal story, but sometimes I just want to get the facts in a more neutral tone of voice.
I’d like to share some history books that I’ve read recently that were written by and about women. Read More »
