Arriving to La Maquette, we were first seated on the first floor then we told the hostess that we would like to change our seats to 2nd floor. The views are amazing upstair. It would be nice seating in the patio outside too if only it was not raining.

This is so tasty!!! especially the scallop (so soft & sweet), I was turn off a bit because the saltiness in the veal but when I tried to eat both the veal & scallop & dip with sauce & mashed potatoes, it actually amazing delicious, so much nom nom ❤ ❤

The lobster and the veal look kinda similar. haha. I would say it is not as good as the lobster I ate in Fred’s Not Here. One of them was burned more than the other.

La Maquette have the best deserts out of three restaurants I tried this Summerlicious. And The butterscotch Ice Cream is the best, not only fulfilling my chocolate thirst, it is so fresh and make me to eat more even after the 2 previous courses .  The profiterole is genius too, i love how I can feel the chocolate kicks to my nose and the crunchiness and softness of the cream puff.

Summer Festivals Week

It has been a crazy week. I went to Film Festival on Friday , Taste Of Asia on Saturday and watching fireworks on Mississauga Celebration Hall on Tuesday. Maybe not that crazy for everyone but for me, it was hectic. Well, except for work I was mostly staying at home before that… and this is some of the stuffs I have learned from my long weekend.

1. Say No To Street Food

Well, Eating hotdog or street burgers when you are hungry is a good thing. But Not when You Try to mix up a combination that You dont know what It going To Taste Like or when you Decide To Try This Never Heard Of Asian Food. Like me last Weekend…

OYSTER

Yes, I waited in line for $7 oyster omelette. Tastes Ok. Like some eggs jelly sugar sticky things with 4 oysters and the spicy sauce on top. I wished they gave me more oyster. Back to my thought>>> Hmm, I always went to this &1 an oyster place every Mon & Wed near my place. The fresh of oyster taste , horseradish and lemon are awesome. Their oyster is big too.

Then Seafood To Another Seafood, I waited in a longer line for the $10 fried squid, decided not to take the $15 deal for 2 because I am not that brave enough to trust that I would finish all of them, or I just want to save my stomach for other foods. And then finally until my turn after all this stomach growling from the BBQ Squid smell, I have spit it out the moment I chew the squid. IT IS RAW> came back & ask them to cook it again. later STILL RAW.

 STREET

I gave up on the squid. Walk to another line of Hongkong Style Stinky AKA Smelly Tofu. Thought that the more stinky it is, The better it may taste. I was wrong. Stinky Tofu is just a normal Deep Fried Tofu with this hell of A Smell In It. Especially after that Raw Squid Incident. I Just Want to Go Home.

2. Pride Day. Freebies Day. Color Day. My eyes booming with Rainbow. I think I could shoot some rainbow laser. laugh* It was Fun.

I love freebies. So even if ppl come up to me and give me some male deodorant or cond**, still gladly accept it. It is free. lol. And freebies everywhere in Pride Festival, free concert, free hugs, free smile…

BLOG GUGU

>>>Only this one time when this really nice looking lady came up to me & gave me a sticker with a smiley face on it. My reflection & my thirst for freebies came before my judgement and my brain. I was smiling and say “thanks”. Then she said “if you could give some coins to me, you are a very nice girls…”I was dumbfounded. Then I smiled. Here it go. 50 cent for some stupid looking smiley sticker.
Sorry. She did not know I am really Cheap too. >>>Beware Of Beggar Tactics.

3. Canada Day. We played Glowing Color Volleyball In The City Hall. Havent seen any Fireworks for a long time too.

The best part about Canada Day is I could listen to so many good singers same day. I really like this guy named Francesco Yates, his singing and not to mention, his hair.

DSC00426

Of course My Favourite Moment Was When everyone around me starting to Laugh and Act Like A kid, Jumping & Dancing after those Colourful Big Balls.

So I am going to skip the firework to everyone imagination (tired…) and hopefully I can dream about it tonight.

Xoxo,
