I spent my last weekend out of town with a group of friends in Toronto. Crashed at a friend’s place for three nights; we left for Toronto around 7pm on Friday night and came back Monday night at 12:30am. I normally really don’t care for TO but because all Summer, all I did was work and school with pretty much zero vacation, I looked forward to the weekend. It was an enjoyable trip. I didn’t take many photos really, except for Toronto Zoo. They got pandas this year. I saw plenty of pandas last Summer in HK but it was still nice to see them again. Obviously HK was better for seeing pandas.
I was supposed to meet up with a friend from Toronto on the Monday morning/afternoon but something came up for her so we didn’t get to meet up. Another friend had to pack because she’s moving to HK for her future prospects/career. She one way ticket-ed out of Canada on the 4th.
There was a peacock and her babies…they were so cute but I didn’t manage to snap any good pic of them.
I found my beloved VS shampoo at T&T in Toronto! I actually tried the VS shampoo they have here for sale in Canada but it is definitely NOT the same. The one at T&T one was definitely the right one but they charge $18 for the bottle…which is way more than I’m used to paying in HK…I opted to try Tsubaki by Shiseido, which was on sale and I had wanted to try in HK. I used it once and I like it so far.
Besides that, they opened a Tony Moly in Pacific Mall!!! *sobs* I wish they opened one here. There’s a Missha there too. I ended up picking up three things with the total around $25…there were several things I wanted to buy but they were out of stock. Got an eyebrow pencil in Grey Brown, a brush eyeliner (my Lioele one is dying) and a pot concealer (my Shills one is pretty much gone)
I also bought some snacks (obviously) and got an adorable rilakkuma pillow on sale for $10~
Overall we just chilled downtown, went swimming (friend’s condo has a shared pool), hung around Markham/PMall, ate, and went to Toronto Zoo.
And with that…class started again this week.
