Places :: Condo Construction {Cement Zamboni}

Toronto Photographer :: M Studio Life
Saw this cool photo op — they are evening out wet cement at night for a new condo foundation.  The machines reminded me of a zamboni, except for cement! When both go at the same time, totally looks like bumper cars!

Travels :: Goa, India {Part II}

This is a continuation of the last post for Goa, India — Grand Hyatt Goa.  Every Thursday evenings they have a “Seafood Night Market”.  So for an extra 800 rupees, you can enjoy some fresh seafood for dinner, such as lobster, shrimps, etc.  There is also an outdoor market that sells jewelry, umbrellas, artwork, spices, etc. There are even drummers performing intermittingly — it’s quite festive!

Travels :: Goa, India {Part I}

without comments

Stayed in Goa, India for a week for another Destination Wedding…thanks to Garima from G+H Photography, who asked me to 2nd shoot for her.  This post features the Grand Hyatt Goa, a 5-Star hotel, which was our accommodations.  We mostly ate at the buffet restaurant, which had a nice selection of food.  Some spicy and some non-spicy, which was perfect for me, since I’m a wimp and can’t handle the spice! They had tons of dessert too, YUM!  I was trying to be good with my eating, since I totally pigged out on the cruise trip recently, but nope, I was tempted by all this delicious food again!  Go figure!  I really enjoyed our stay, as the suite we got was really luxurious.  The bed was so comfy and they had complimentary slippers, shoe shine, and a rain spa shower head.  We also had a spacious balcony, which overlooked the beautiful pool.  And only a few minutes walk away, was a private beach.  A really relaxing and serene place to be.  After having traveled to New Delhi the year before and seeing how chaotic it can be there, you really appreciate the beauty of Goa.

Travels :: Royal Caribbean Cruise “Brilliance of the Seas”

without comments

This was my first time cruising.  Glad I was able to find a good deal for Royal Caribbean International — it was for 7 nights and we got a balcony suite.  We decided to fly to San Juan, Puerto Rico to take the “Brilliance of the Seas” ship because everyday the ship docked somewhere new except for one day at sea.  So we got a taste of different nearby islands such as : Tortola {British Virgin Islands}, Philipsburg {St. Maarten}, Basseterre {St. Kitts}, Pointe-a-Pitre {Guadeloupe}, Bridgetown {Barbados}, and then back to San Juan {Puerto Rico}, where we stayed for an extra 3 days. “Brilliance of the Seas” was a probably a mid-sized ship, which was kept really clean and everyone was very friendly.  I was worried about sea-sickness, but was ok for the duration of the trip. Every now and then you would feel the ship rock, but it was expected.

Evening entertainment was fun — some of the acts included “Happy Days” singer Bobby Avron, comedians Azeem and Jeff Bradley, “Brilliance of the Seas” singers and dancers, etc.  Activities on the ship that we tried included : rock climbing, billiards, table tennis, etc.  The food; hands down was spectacular — I’m pretty sure I gained a few pounds when I got back.  Some highlights of the evening dining at Minstrel included lobster tail, escargot, shrimp, cod fish, tiramisu, creme brulee, souffle, etc.  Breakfast and lunch was usually buffet at the Windjammer, but occasionally we’d go to the Seaview Cafe for some yummy chicken fingers or fish and chips.  Overall it was a great experience — it was nice spending part of the winter holidays in warm weather.  You don’t get much time to explore on each island, but at least you get a taste of what each island is like, so if you really enjoyed it, you could go back another time.  For my next trip, I’ll be headed to Goa, India soon for a Destination Wedding…so stay tuned for that blog post! Cheers!
