Summer in Toronto: Day 1, We’re in Toronto!

My first time here after 8 years and Tom’s very first time in this part of the world.  We exited the airport and heard Sei shout my name!!! Soooo coool!!!  So lovely to  Sei and Tin Lok at the airport, and from there we went back to Tai & Keith’s beautiful home… where we were greeted by this cutest little munchkin…

I could never forget this first time meeting with baby Allison.  The four of us sat opposite her – Sei, Tin Lok, Tom and I.    But her eyes kept darting back and fort between Tom and I!!! Literally darting continuously!!  few seconds on me then to Tom and then back and it went on!!!  Soooo darn cute.  She must have been so confused what these two strangers were doing in her home!

And the PIZZAs!!!! Hahhaha….. the ironic thing is,…. for the past few times we’ve eaten pizzas in Belgium – I felt immediately uncomfortable in the stomach.  Something about the dough, the yeast,… I could not digest it.  (although I never had this problem eating pizzas in HK, I think the dough there is lighter).  But THIS time – TOM had some difficulty digesting them….specially after the change in environment, water etc… and his being first time on North American soil… hehehe

Afterwards, we went to AhQ’s place where it was a full house… a reunion… everyone was there… soo cosy..

My eyes widened when I saw these chicken wings!!!
I vividly remember QMei’s chicken wings from the first time we visited Canada back in 2000!! No kidding!!
They were like the perfect fusion of western and indian.
SOOOOOO delicious!
This time I took the recipe from QMei… and perhaps one of these days I’m gonna try making them…
