Poutine Feast

Hi guys! Did you miss me? I really missed blogging this week but I wasn’t feeling well emotionally and physically but I’m glad I’m feeling better and I’m able to start blogging again.

Today, I will be writing about my recent trip to Poutine Feast. This year, they held it in Mississauga and my best friend and I went together. I saw the event on Facebook and thought it would be a great event to attend. I texted my best friend Shantelle and asked her if she was free and she said YES! I was so happy.

Poutine feast is essentially, a festival where local vendors sell poutine of different varieties.

Poutine is something that I enjoy but I never really purchase. My brother is actually the first  one who made me try poutine and I’ve loved it ever since but I only purchase it occasionally. I’m trying to watch what I eat.

On the way to the festival we stopped to get an ice cappuccino and then we decided to uber there. When the uber arrived at the destination given on the map, we realized that we were so lost. There was nothing in that area, just grass. LOL. So we got out of the car, walked and found the location of the feast.

There were a lot of people in the park. At first, we couldn’t locate the poutine and we wondered if we were in the right location. But then we walked to the back of the venue and found the poutine. Yay!

This is my best friend Shantelle who I went to the festival with.

We couldn’t decide on which poutine truck to go to, so we just chose a random one. We decided to try one of the new poutine flavours.I chose beef  poutine and my friend chose bacon. They both cost 17$ each. The one on the left is my friends and the one on the right is mine

Yeah, it was probably not the best idea to try a new poutine that day. Haha, I was really turned off after my first bite. It tasted really awful. Note to self : Stick to what you know Raceen.

After that, I went to get a hot dog because I was so hungry. Then my friend and I looked around to see what the other vendors were selling.

There were hand made jewelleryIMG_5401.

My friend tried on rings and purchased one which was really nice

I wanted to have my portrait drawn but they didn’t take debit cards so that made me sad. Maybe next time.

We then got some  ice cream because it was really hot!

We had a great time, despite the awful tasting poutine. I’ll probably be going to more festivals this summer.

It’s a way to get out of the house, explore and meet new people. I want to be outside more this summer. After all, summer only comes once every year and winter is so brutal here in Canada.

Mother’s Day Adventures

My mom is my favourite person period. She is my best friend. After her many stays in the hospital and being sick I just appreciate her more you know?

This mother’s day I decided to take my mom to the Peel Art Gallery downtown Brampton, Canada. I know, weird mother’s day idea right? Well, I asked her what she wanted to do and out of all my suggestions this is what she picked. DSCN0507

My mom is a very simple woman. She likes sitting in the couch watching TV, she doesn’t really like going out much so this was a simple relaxing activity for her.

We arrived at about 1:30 pm and were greeted by some really nice ladies. After we paid we went inside and looked around the Museum and the Art gallery.

Below are some pictures of how our day went.

We learned so much about the history of Brampton.

We had a really good time and got a view of the courthouse in the 1860’s.

We spent about 45 minutes inside, we toured the art gallery and viewed an old courthouse that was built in the 1860’s.

The museum wasn’t as big as the one in Toronto and there wasn’t a lot to see but my mom enjoyed herself and that’s all I care about.
