Castle celebration

To celebrate my quarter century birthday I was taken to Casa Loma castle for lunch and tour. imageThat Sangria was strong phew

Royal Ontario Museum

I haven’t been to the ROM since fifth grade and to get to go as an adult and enjoy the exhibits with booze in one hand is all the more fun. Here is a picture of me at Ethiopian House getting dinner before my fun museum night. image

Sea turtle…the cool factor is self explainable why I wanted a photo of itimageMoose! Moose! I can’t imagine seeing one of these live. I mean they are the most dangerous creatures seeing that they are large and unintellectual.imageTesting out some bat wings imageWe just had to get a selfie with the bear image

Done with Katz

I went to check out Toronto’s first cat cafe and it really wasn’t as fun as I thought I would be. I had higher expectations for these kitties. The admission to the kitty area was that you had to spend min $5/ person in food/drinks, rather limited for me cuz I don’t do caffeine. I ended up getting an apple cider and a slice of cheese cake.imageThis orangey black ass-hole bit my finger imageHere is a grumpy cat the staff warned us about. Doesn’t like to be pet so I don’t know what that human there is doing…imageIn conclusion cat cafes are a good concept but I’m not into them. Lazy, finger biting feline with attitudes.

Play Garden

Vancouver seems to really love their botanical gardens. There are gardens of all sorts, Chinese, Japanese, Himalayan, Canadian you name it they have it. I went to the VanDusen and the Sun Yat Sen Chinese garden.
