Today, I celebrated Canadian Thanksgiving with my mother and sister in traditional fashion, with a dim sum lunch and sushi dinner.
Lai Wah Heen is, in my opinion, the best dim sum in the downtown area – and mom agreed. Pictured above: the lobster dumpling and the crispy pork belly.
After dropping mom off at the hotel, sis and I did some extreme sock shopping. We stopped by Nugateau for an eclair stop (pistachio and maple eclairs) and then, fortified with cream and pastry shells, we resumed our perusal of Toronto’s best sock shops. In the end, Andria and mom bought me several awesome new pairs (Chewbacca, Darth Vader, sharks, dogs, and clouds) for my every-growing sock drawer.
Nothing compliments a three piece suit, tie, and matching cufflinks like a pair of dog-riding-a-bike socks.
Tomorrow, everyone heads home – mom and sis back to Montreal, and yours truly back to Vancouver…for all of most of a night, then back on a 6:30 a.m. flight to Toronto with Akemi, Lulu, and Bubba!
