12/21/12 - the end!?

So the Mayans miscalculated the end of the world and shockingly and surprisingly we homosapiens live another day.

I'm still awaiting for a zombie apocalypse for I've almost completed reading the zombie survival guide + religiously watch the walking dead.

To another year of life - 2013.

Gossip Girls Identity Revealed

And so gossip girls identity was finally revealed. It was no other than our favorite lonely boy - DAN HUMPHREY. I personally did not see that coming however, it tied up the series marvelously  My guess was little J and because she is a Humphrey and knew about Dan the whole time.. I was close - a great twist!

Chuck & Blair + Serena & Dan married was just absolutely perfect!!!! I can say that I am honestly content with the entire series and will gravely and compassionately miss Gossip Girl! xo

Goodbye Gossip Girl - xoxo you know I'll miss you!

This is it... the 2 hour series finale episode of Gossip Girl airs tonight at 8pm EST. It has been an incredible 6 years. My only disappoint is, that they cut this final season short. Season 1-5 consisted of 18-25 episodes however, season 6 ends with a measly 10 episodes, womp womp.

Will Gossip Girls identity be revealed in this final episode? Have you guys seen the trailer of tonight's episode? It is really intense. Everything will be summed up, with all loose ends tied up in a little more than 1.5 hours (damn you commercials). My only 1 hope is the obvious... the union of the infamous Chuck Bass and Blair Waldorf - this is all I have been waiting for, forever!

I was also inspired by Georgina Sparks gold pyramid studded iPhone4 case that I was able to find a comparable one on eBay for my iPhone5. Not only is it super chic, but it turns out it also matches the hardware on my MK & LV bag - double yay!

Now all that we can hope for is a mind blowing episode tonight to do the entire series justice. I also have to admit, season 1 was probably my favorite season. Salute to an end to Monday night scandals on the upper east side.

xoxo you know you love me!!

Dentist?

I haven't been to the dentist in almost 2 years and that is because I was scared for some odd reason. I have benefits that I pay for through work which I was not utilizing and simply wasting. Rebecca had fatified my picture at work ( an iPhone app that makes you extremely fat ) but during that process it slapped some messed up teeth on me. Almost instantly after seeing that picture I called and made a dentist appointment.

I went for my cleaning where they obviously took too many x-rays and it wasn't as bad as I anticipated. After cleaning my mouth for an excess of an hour and after telling me that I have no cavities, she then informs me that I have to come back next week for another cleaning. Like really? Aren't you supposed to go for a cleaning every 6 months? She apparently wanted to clean deeper into my gums. I then realized that my insurance policy renews every calendar year & they simply want to take as much money from me as possible. Dentist are over rated. Absolutely necessary and beneficiary for good dental hygiene but a total rip off. With all that said I am going under in 2 weeks to get all 4 of my wisdom teeth removed. Scared. What can I say... they nearly maximized my insurance cap in the end anyways.

Ok, so this is the picture I'm talking about. Be prepared to be traumatized. Enjoy!

Revenge & Suits

With the television series House MD ended and Gossip Girl ending in several weeks I have thankfully found comparable TV shows which seasons are still fresh to keep myself occupied in the evenings.

My new TV addiction shows are Revenge in lieu of Gossip Girl and Suits in lieu of House. From medical humor to legal humor and Upper East Siders to the filthy rich Hampton's.

I find that these shows are not mindless and provide a lot of insight, drama and knowledge into real world situations and obviously is great entertainment. I am excited for Suits to come out of hiatus and just recently started watching revenge; so I am still in catch up mode.

Anyone else enjoying these television shows as much as I am?

Fall Back Time Change 2012

Saturday night, in bed by 11pm. As I woke up in a disgruntled state of confusion, trying to figure out why the time on my alarm clock was different from the time on my cell phone... I then realized it is that wonderful time of year again where we set our clocks back an hour.

Yay! An extra hour of sleep - you can imagine my excitement for sleeping is my favourite task/hobby/thing to do (next to eating).

So just a friendly reminder to everyone to set your clocks back an hour and to take advantage of that extra hour sleep because we are going to be taken over by darkness a lot earlier in the evening. Wah!

Happy Sleeping!!!

Happy Be-Lated Birthday Hello Kitty!



November 1st marks the birthday of Hello Kitty - I can't believe I missed it. :(

I am not a fan of cats however, this little animated bob cat and I share a special bond. Well, maybe me more so than her. LOL!

Happy Birthday Hello Kitty, we share the same birth month. :)<3

False Eyelashes

I lack eyelashes. Unfortunately, I was not blessed with long, curly lushes eyelashes. I really need to layer up on the mascara, which I already struggle to apply and to make matters even worst - I hate removing mascara. I find that I lose too many of my natural eyelashes in the process and I know I can not afford to lose or spare any lashes. I also struggle to use the eyelash curler contraption, I've snapped my top lips in them once and boy did it hurt. Ever since that incident, I've avoided them.When I was in Miami, my girlfriend decided to glue on some false eyelashes and d-a-m-n, it was instant love in the mirror. Ever since then, I been hooked. I only wear them to big functions or crazy, wild party nights. Now that I think about it, I have never applied the lashes to my eyes myself - I don't even know if I am capable. The best part of this whole experience is... when I come home late at night in the odd some hours, all I have to do is gently rip em off and to bed I go.

False eyelashes rock! They dramatize your eyes and complete your entire look.
**bats eyes ;)

Happy Halloween

Happy Halloween Everyone!!

Sandy's wrath has left us with undesirable weather conditions but hopefully the rain will hold off this evening so our little trick or treaters can get some candy.

I didn't do anything exciting this Halloween but visit Halloween Haunt at Canada's Wonderland which was really not that scary. If you know me, I'm virtually scared of anything that involves the dark, zombies, ghosts and especially the asylum (crazy people), haha and if Halloween Haunt did not scare me - how scary could it be? In retrospect, they did do a phenomenal job in decorating the park and the haunted houses.

Have Fun & Be Safe tonight!! :)

Trick-Or-Treat!!

iPhone 5 Case

So you all probably know about my dirty/sweet addiction to this cute little Japanese bob cat.. also known as Hello Kitty. As I was browsing eBay, in an adamant search for a super cool phone case, I stumbled upon this one and let me tell you.. it was love at first sight. I obviously in an overwhelmed hurry ordered it and now currently await the arrival of this super fab iPhone case via mail from Hong Kong.
Ya, it's probably not the most practical case but who needs total functionality when you can have glamor, glitz, sparkle and that extra hmph?

What do you guys think about this super cute/chic phone case?

iPhone 5 - finally betrayed rim

I've done it - finally made the switch. Love the new phone however still learning this touch screen keypad thing. I am currently also experiencing bbm withdrawal and absolutely missing my group chat with the besties. I guess the 0.99cent whatsapp will have to due. I am also upset that no cool cases have yet been released for this fragile and over marketed phone.. like come on apple!!!!!

RIP Blackberry Bold 9900 you will sincerely be missed!

Laser Hair Removal

So, I had laser done on my underarms about 3-4 years ago and it was a total fail and a total waste of $500. Well not completely because the coarseness of the hair has minimized to really thin hairs, but with my skin complexion the lady used an IPL machine and totally discolored my underarms - now they are ugly and slowly in rejuvenation mode.

Now there is big talk about the new Soprano XL laser machine which is apparently great for darker skin people and with my girlfriend and her friends having great results, I have decided - what the heck, I am giving it a second go.

The best thing with the Soprano XL machine is that it is pain free, quick and easy. I remember the IPL machine feeling like someone holding a rubber band and sling shotting you with it - OUCH!!!! and the aftermath was hot burning arm pits.

I just had my first treatment this Sunday, September 30th, 2012 so I can't really say much as of yet. I am doing 4 body parts at a great price and can just hope for great results.

Tip: One of the ladies also informed me that purchasing a Groupon laser removal package, you think you are getting a great deal but apparently they do your treatments on lower settings (5 jewels as opposed to 10 jewels) so after your package is complete you have to buy another one anyways - I would say this is a waste of money. But hey, they got to make money somehow... right?

I will let you guys know how it works out after my 3-4 treatment. Treatments are every 6 weeks. :)

My Current Seed Addiction

I binge eat sunflower seeds like I am going to die of starvation. My co-workers think that I am going to turn into a bird and fly away. The picture attached is that of all the seeds I consumed within a 15minute time frame. It sometimes delays my working ability because I cannot stop to take a breath and want to continue cracking and popping. Jeez!

What can I say?

I love sunflower seeds.

Krista Ford’s advice after sex assaults news conference: ‘Don’t dress like a whore’

An hour after police held a news conference to warn women about a series of sex assaults in two Toronto neighbourhoods, Krista Ford, daughter of Councillor Doug Ford, offered her own advice.

“Stay alert, walk tall, carry mace, take self-defence classes & don’t dress like a whore,” Krista Ford, niece of Mayor Rob Ford, wrote on Twitter just after 6 p.m., adding “#DontBeAVictim” and “#StreetSmart.”

Mace is considered a prohibited and restricted weapon, according to the Toronto police sex crimes unit.

Krista Ford, who describes herself on her Twitter account as a personal trainer, promotional model and TV personality, is a former player for Toronto Triumph, part of the U.S.-based Lingerie Football League. She quit the team last October.

She did not reply to a request for comment Wednesday evening.

Last year, a Toronto cop was lambasted for saying that “women should avoid dressing like sluts not to be victimized” during a speech. The comments launched “SlutWalk,” a series of marches in cities around the world protesting comments about women’s dress or appearance being linked to sexual assault. The officer later apologized.

Source

Like what was she thinking by making such a bold statement "don't dress like a whore"? Sexual predators don't only attack women who are supposedly "dressed like whores" although they do attract the wrong type of men. That portion of her tweet was totally unnecessary especially since she was apart of the Toronto Triumph Lingerie Football League.

What do you think?

I Love Nail Polish

Ever since I stopped getting my nails did, I am currently in the process of growing my real nail backs. I have experimented with many different brands of nail polish and I found that Love & Beauty by Forever21 is the best. The polish remains on my nails for AT LEAST 2 weeks without chipping (keeping that you put a clear coat on) & the best part of it all is that it is only $3.80. Woo HOoooo... give it a try!

Happy Birthday NAV!! xo

Well who would have thought, that 8 years later we would still be friends? LOL. Well actually, I never really thought about it but hey, I'm glad that we are still BFFs fooo lyfeeee. haha.

Here is a really great way back play back - I know this picture is really scary (don't kill me) but I will never forget when we first met, you fed me yogurt with that spoon in 2004 and now you cook and feed me dhal and roti (mmm... yummmm). Hahaha, somethings have not changed. :)

Hope your birthday is wonderful & I wish that you may never get wrinkles on your face. Love You!!!! xoxox

Shamballa Bracelet

Just ordered this Shamballa bracelet and I am now super excited to receive it in the mail. Another pretty and shiny arm candy piece to add to my collection.

Inspired by meditation and Buddhist history, Shamballa bracelets are more than favorable fashion items. In fact, today’s hip hop celebrities, who have driven their fans to the accessory trend, wear their Shamballa bracelets for purposes beyond fashion, as they are believed to support peace, tranquility and happiness. While the accessory has kept its spiritual meaning, its traditional design has somewhat changed. Originally sporting a nylon or waxed linen string embellished by hematite and metal beads, current styles favored by celebrities and their fans now include gemstones, disco bead balls and diamonds.

Pretty Little Liars

With most of my favorite television shows ending their series this season and the rest on hiatus for the summer, I have been obsessing over Pretty Little Liars.

I randomly watched an episode one Sunday evening and have been hooked ever since. It is like a teeny boppers version of Desperate Housewives.

The level of suspense is just wild and it definitely keeps you fully engaged, wanting more - the mystery around who "A" is, is almost overwhelming.

I also like the fact that they incorporate so many aspects of life, like: bullying, homosexuality, friendships, trust, divorce, step siblings, adultery, lies, secrets, bonds, beauty, fashion, etc.

I managed to get through all 3 seasons, with each episode being 45minutes within 2 weeks. Yup! Talk about having no life. When I get consumed in something, like a tv show or a book I go M.I.A until I am up-to-date - kind of like a bear in hibernation.

Now although, that I am all caught up and with the summer season finale being next week, after we learn that there are 2 "A"s (ahhhhh!).

I have also started reading the Pretty Little Liars series. Book 1 of 11 with the 12th one coming out this December 2012.

Exciting!!!

Useful Health Warning!

It's so good to finally get a health warning that is useful!!!

INVOLVES THE SHAMPOO WHEN IT RUNS DOWN YOUR BODY WHEN YOU SHOWER WITH IT

WARNING TO US ALL!!!

Shampoo Warning!
I don't know WHY I didn't figure this out sooner!
I use shampoo in the shower!
When I wash my hair, the shampoo runs down my whole body, and printed very
clearly on the shampoo label is this warning,
"FOR EXTRA BODY AND VOLUME."No wonder I have been gaining weight!
Well! I got rid of that shampoo and I am going to start showering
with Dawn dishwashing soap instead. Its label reads,
"DISSOLVES FAT THAT IS OTHERWISE DIFFICULT TO REMOVE."Problem solved!
If I don't answer the phone I'll be in the shower!

Cake Making Fun

I am not a woman you will find in the kitchen however, I assisted my girlfriend in baking a cake for our girlfriend's birthday. I was very fascinated with the process of layering, making your own fondant, cutting, shaping, trimming, rolling, kneading, stacking, etc. It was a 2 day process in which I probably consumed way too much icing (oops). Anyhow, it was a great learning experience.

See pictures below:

Oops, she was accidentally lit on fire

You know you're getting older when...

Twilight Saga

I have heard nothing but good things about the Twilight Series. I have watched all the movies and enjoyed them but could not understand why some people hated the movie so much. After getting through all 4 books within a weeks time (yes, I enjoyed it that much) - I understood. I was over indulged in these books to a point where I was dreaming vampires and werewolves.

The movies do not do these books even the slightest justice. I have to admit that I enjoyed this series more than the 50 Shades of Grey Trilogy. I was able to create this whole new fantasy world in my mind while reading, losing countless hours of sleep every night because that 1 more chapter before I went to bed never came. Even after completing the series and disliking the movies because of the lack of material (obviously and hopefully due to time restraint) I still look forward to the last movie - Breaking Dawn pt.2. It was definitely a fabulous read.

PS - I love werewolves. :)

Why do we cheat?

I came across this article and was very intrigued... I have to admit that all these reasons are valid causes to why people cheat, it just gives you a better perspective.
"But all the tech tools in the world can’t make a person cheat; it’s a choice. When asked why they're unfaithful, men and women usually have different excuses, er, reasons.

Here’s what the experts say:


Reason #1: She ain’t what she used to be.Like Adam, the typical man can’t resist the temptation of riper fruit, especially if the woman in his life has let herself go.
“If she got physically lazy or gained weight or just doesn’t take care of herself, a guy will start looking at other women,” says Steve Santagati, author of 
The Manual: A True Bad Boy Explains How Men Think, Date and Mate – and What Women Can Do to Come Out on Top (Crown).
Women who keep their men on a short leash need to take a “good, hard look in the mirror,” he adds.
Men should do the same. He might be a complete slob and still demand perfection from her.
“It’s the typical double standard,” Santagati says.
For their part, guys should try to rediscover the spark at home.
“Make her feel pretty, even if you’re lying,” he advises. “Tell her how beautiful she is and how much you appreciate it. It will make her feel sexy, and she’ll want to make you happy.”

Reason #2: Familiarity has bred indifference.What’s the most common excuse Dr. Nancy hears from women?
They feel taken for granted. Their guys will discuss the kids, bills and house repairs, but they haven’t really talked in a while.
To women, that failure to communicate translates to less intimacy and emotional and relationship satisfaction, says family and marriage therapist Terri Orbuch, host of Detroit’s Love Doctor TV and radio programs.
“When you’re unhappy or dissatisfied in your relationship, you’re more likely to be tempted to look elsewhere,” Orbuch says.
And, she adds, you begin to perceive opportunities – the cute co-worker, the flirty dad at the playground.
When a woman feels like little more than a household drudge, attention from someone else is extremely seductive.


Reason #3: No one loves a ball buster.Perhaps nothing will drive a married man into the arms of another woman faster than a nagging wife.
“She’s like a mosquito,” Santagati says. “He doesn’t want to have sex with her; he wants to swat her away.” And go running for hot sex with a more “understanding” woman.

Reason #4: You’re leading parallel lives.You used to travel the same path, but lately your interests have diverged.
Your guy wants to shoot pool with his buddies or watch football in his free time; you’d rather go to festivals or watch The Bachelorette.
When you start doing things separately, you’re more likely to meet others who share your interests.
Soon you may have more in common with that guy in your photography class than your significant other.


Reason #5: Blame it on wanderlust.Often, married men who cheat can’t explain why.
They just feel compelled to bust out of their daily routine.
It’s a primitive instinct that dates back to their role as hunter – only this time, they’re hunting women.
“Maybe he got married too young,” Santagati says. “Or he just feels as if he hasn’t seen everything.”
Women can get wise to this behavior early in a relationship.
Watch how he acts in a room full of gorgeous women, Santagati suggests.
If you can’t rein him in when your romance is new, you’ll never control him.
For longtime couples, it doesn’t take much to snap a man out of the doldrums.

Reason #6: The passion has fizzled.Even happy marriages – healthy kids, steady finances, faraway in-laws – can breed discontent.
Despite the security a wife feels, “she’s bored and needs some excitement,” Dr. Nancy says.
Once the romance fades, your guy may not be the man you fell in love with. Instead, he’s a mass of habits that get under your skin. Perhaps you never knew him to begin with or hoped he would change.
Either can lead to infidelity, says Stephany Alexander, online dating expert and founder of
WomanSavers.com.
A casual affair may put some zing back in your days.
“It’s something new, different and exciting,” Alexander says. “When a woman’s Prince Charming turns out to be a frog, women often cheat in hopes of finding a new prince.”

Reason #7: It’s biology, baby.Women may scoff at this theory, but the male urge to get into someone else’s jeans could be in their genes.
“It’s our biological nature to be with as many females as possible,” Santagati says.
Science backs this up.
A study published in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences revealed that men with a particular gene are less likely to bond with their partner, opening the door to infidelity.
Santagati, however, has a simpler explanation.
“Once we’ve seen a woman naked several times, it becomes commonplace.
We want to experience something different – different lips and body types.
“We’re only monogamous because we realize that love and friendship are more important than getting laid,” he says.

Reason #8: Your ego needs a boost.You can be in a relationship with a perfectly wonderful, loving man and still need extra affirmation that you’ve still got it.
“For whatever reason, that reassuring partner isn’t enough,” Orbuch says. “You look elsewhere, so you can feel like you’re lovable.”


Reason #9: It’s just sex.For most guys, sex and love are different things.
“We really believe, ‘I can still love my wife and want to have sex with other women,’” Santagati says.
That rationale allows guys to cheat guilt-free. If there is guilt, it may not be about the sex but the consequences. Will she kiss and tell? Will the wife find out?
Not sure where the lines of infidelity are drawn? Check out
Chaste or Cheating?
Thinking of cheating on your wife? Santagati has one recommendation.
“Consider the worst-case scenario: Your wife finds out and is brokenhearted,” he says. “Ask yourself, is it worth it?”
Reason #10: It’s payback time.When a woman catches her man with his hand in someone else’s cookie jar, she figures she has a right to revenge.
“If a woman finds out her significant other has been cheating, she may try to heal those hurt feelings by having sex with another man,” Alexander says.

My Very 1st Wax Machine

Thank the lord that I was not born an excessively hairy person however, hair is still present. Whomp Whomp. Professional waxing costs add up quickly ever since I completely retired my razor (no exceptions). So... I decided to buy a waxing machine and attempted to do an at home spa. Instead of buying wax strips, I cut up a pair of my dads old denims and they worked magnificently. Also, I am grateful that I have a sister to sometimes assist me on those odd places (back of my leg) where it is difficult for me to do myself. It is very convenient, easy and accessible - no more having to worry about the salon being open, or waiting in line, or the best part of all.... paying. Baby oil and baby powder are also my new companions when waxing.

People who love to eat...

This says it all!! <3

Pandora Charm Bracelet

For years now, I have been satisfying my dirty Tiffany & Co. addiction. Spending thousands of dollars on jewellery but, I have now come across Pandora and decided that I want to own a charm bracelet. Originally, I would have just purchased a Tiffany's bracelet, however, I anticipate being annoyed by too many dangling charms. I would like to compensate my right wrist, for it is so bare and naked with a simple yet meaningful ongoing charm bracelet. I also love, how every charm can tell a story...

Brown Girl Problems

If you have not already read my I Love Curry post then you now know that I am a curry eating/loving monster. A problem that I frequently suffer from is having curry stained nails after a meal. My mom usually peels the shells off the shrimps for me and cooks boneless meat curry (yes, I know I am partially spoiled). For at least 3 years now, I have not seen my real nails - I have had fake gel nails on forever so I randomly decided to finally cut them off. I got to admit, it is extremely weird having such short natural nails however my typing ability has drastically increased.

Back to the point... After removing my fake nails, I decided to paint my nails yellow. The next day I indulged in goat curry - full out messy hands, bones and all (this was because I was having dinner at my cousins). After I washed my hands, I realized that your nails cannot get curry stained when they are painted yellow. It was AMAZING!!!!!

Want U Back

I don't know what it is about this song, maybe because I could once relate? But at the very least, it is super catchy and the lyrics are awesome.
Cher Lloyd - Want U Back
Hey, boy you never had much game
So I needed to upgrade
So I went and walked away-way-way
Now, I see you've been hanging out
With that other girl in town
Looking like a pair of clowns-clowns-clowns

Remember all the things that you and I did first?
And now you're doing them with her
Remember all the things that you and I did first?
You got me, got me like this
And now you're taking her to every restaurant
And everywhere we went, come on
And now you're taking her to every restaurant
You got me, got me like this

[Chorus]
Boy you can say anything you want
I don't give a shh, no one else can have ya
I want you back
I want you back
Wa-want you, want you back
I broke it off thinking you'd be crying
Now I feel like shh looking at you flying
I want you back
I want you back
Wa-want you, want you back....

Danier Leather's fashion show at Cube Nightclub

Clubbing on a Tuesday night? This, I can honestly say that I have not yet done. Well, there is a first time for everything. Tonight, alongside Rebecca I will be attending Katwalk at the newly renovated Cube Nightclub to solely witness Danier Leather's fashion show at 11:30pm. Although this is way past my bedtime and a working day I do not intend on raging (partying) tonight. I just hope this torrential downpour ease's off by tonight because this fashion show is supposed to occur on the rooftop patio.

Beerfest 2012

I attended Beerfest for the very first time last year on a Sunday. This was the 2nd consecutive year I went, however, this time I attended on a Saturday and wow... There were so much more people, longer wait times to fill up your glass and too much congestion. I also found that the porta pottys were unbearably disgusting - thank god I've mastered poppin' a precision squat, haha. Note to self: bring tissue in bag. Overall, I had a great time. The weather was amazing, people were friendly (and drunk) and there was an unlimited inflow of beer. I also did not eat lunch to ensure I was able to consume as much beer as possible without the bloating effect. I do however, recommend purchasing the Hoptimize package instead of the original one because it permits you to a shorter line, closer entrance and extra chips for a couple of bucks more.
Beerfest 2012 - Cheers!

My new laptop

I have been using my old age laptop for an excess of 8 years now. It works, however, it is slow as molasses. I visited Future Shop yesterday afternoon to purchase a TV and impulse bought a new laptop and TV. Yikes! (The only reason I visited Future Shop was because my cousin works there, otherwise I would not recommend Future Shop to anyone, seeing to as they are lacking in the Customer Service Department and they clearly do not care about you after they make their commission/sale from you).

I have contemplated purchasing a MacBook however, Safari and the whole Apple layout just does not appeal to me. I like to stick to Windows because it is definitely what I am good at and because it is what I know.

Walking down the the laptop aisle, I saw the cutest little 14" HP notebook and totally fell in love. When I laid eyes on it, I knew it belonged to me + the deal was too good to pass up (thanks cuz, if you are reading this). My browsing ability is now, that of 2012 speed and I am uber excited. The light weight, sleek design and portability is just perfect. In my extreme excitement, I totally forgot to take a picture, hence this photo-less post. Sorry!

M.I.A.

So yes, I have been missing in action. I feel like I have abandoned my blog and have been unable to share the randomness of my life events and facts with you.

Well, I have purchased a new notebook and will hopefully be back in action!!

Look who I bumped into, intoxicated in Miami...

As we somehow ventured away from our hotel, we managed to bump into this fabulous fountain statue of Hello Kitty - poor kitty was crying. As I tried to console her... you can clearly see that my friend was selfishly posing on the ledge.

Boulan South Beach, Miami Room

Just had to share this beautiful, spacious hotel room/condo we stayed in at South Beach, Miami. We were very reluctant and hesitant to stay at this specific hotel because there was not much reviews and because no one had heard about it. Also, we literally booked this trip a week in advance, leaving us with not too many options and sky rocket prices due that weekend being Canada Day long weekend. But to our liking, when we stepped foot into this grand room - it was totally worth it and so reasonably priced. Highly recommended. It even had a dishwasher, washer/dryer + 2 bathrooms + rooftop pool... like heaven.

Please see below the pictures of the room we stayed in.
