Canadian Summer

It’s almost the last leg of summer 2015 in Canada. Thank God we decided to come here during summertime for I have no idea how I’ll be able to adjust to the cold weather if we arrived during the winter season. Thank you, Mr Sun for trying hard to peep thru the clouds once in a while. This island girl appreciates it soooo much! Some nights, it gets very chilly. The lowest I’ve experienced so far is 12 degrees. I’ve exchanged some text messages with friends around the world and the first thing I’ll always complain about is the temperature. I tell them it’s 12 degrees and they all say, wait ’til you experience winter. Wow. It just makes me look forward to winter. Not!

We’re making the most out of this summer season before it gets too cold-when all we would want to do is cuddle in bed all day. Toronto is beautiful during summer. Picture this: flowers in full bloom, blue skies with clouds like cotton, green grass, neighbours walking their dogs every afternoon and parks filled with kids flying their kites. Aaaah… just like in the movies. Perf!

Alberto and I would spend most of our days sending out job applications since we arrived. Ironic how beautiful the weather is outside yet we stay at home. This.can’! I want to explore beautiful Toronto before it’s too late. So, where did our itchy feet bring us?

We spent our afternoons playing with these cutie patooties. We even spotted an eagle in the hood!

I got a little bit confused if this is really a carabao.


Had a sumptuous lunch of pinakbet and pinapaitan with these gorgeous moms, Ate Jo, Ate Gie and Ate Mayette.


Take 2 sa Bahay Kubo. Manong couldn’t be bothered to step aside. Heehee.


The misters went fishing, the misses went food bingeing


Hubby went on his first fishing trip to Muskoka with the boys. He got dinner covered. The hard part was cleaning the catch of the day.

Summer ain’t over yet and we are looking forward to more fun under the sun! Enjoy summer while it lasts! It’s the start of the -BER months and as the days get more gloomy and shorter, keep the light within you shining. Pass it on!
