Summer in Toronto: Day 3, The time we had hot pot at Tai’s…

We met up with 2nd Aunt for Dim Sum in Mississauga.  Surprised to find they served the old-school way with trolleys!   But I much prefer without trolleys as they make it when you order it. Here they just re-heated the food in a microwave.  The dim sum was still pretty good, comparable to that in HK and WAY BETTER than ANYTHING here in Belgium!  Sooo goood to eat HK Dim Sum again… since April!

Tom’s first time in North America would not be complete without a visit to WALMART Smile 

While planning our week, we somehow ended up with a free Monday evening, so I suggested Hot Pot to tai.  I was just thinking of going out… Little did I know how AWESOME this hot pot evening would be!   It was SOOO GOOOD.  It was in the comfort of Tai and Keith’s home,and  Ah Kung and Ah Bho could make it too!  and even Vic made it after his work!  There was SO MUCH food… so much VARIETY …different veggies, meat and so much LIVE seafood…. just so much FUN!   Wow, tai and keith sure knew how to throw a partyyy!!!  All this in an afternoon’s preparation, with baby too!
