Currently Loving #37

A smorgasbord of stuff I've been loving lately:D

1) Ichiban Living (Japanese "dollar" store)
We don't have a Daiso yet here in Toronto, but we do have Ichiban, which is really the same thing. Tons of great stuff for a great price. I don't know why I've never featured this store before coz we're always here:D

 Stationary stuff....who can resist?

 2) Food I've been eating a lot lately: chicken feet (dimsum) and Kamjatang (Korean)

3) Missha M Perfect Cover
The BB Cream and CC Cream are just perfect for the warmer weather when you don't want a heavy coverage.

4) Vampire Prosecutor 2

 I talked about how much I enjoyed the first season of Vampire Prosecutor here, so I decided to watch the second season, and it's just as fun:) There are only 10 episodes so it's a quick watch (currently have two episodes left to see).

5) The Age Of Shadows
Since becoming a huge Gong Yoo fan, I've been watching some of his films, and The Age Of Shadows is one I really loved and highly recommend. A great spy thriller. It keeps you guessing til the end.

 6) The Suspect
Another awesome Gong Yoo film. I'm a sucker for a good action film.

Not gonna lie....I resisted seeing this film for a long time because as much as I love Emma Watson in the HP films, I thought she wouldn't do a good job as Belle. Well, I was wrong! Love love love this film so much, and have seen it a couple of times already. So glad my daughter made me watch this. 

Although I do think Emma might not have the best singing voice, she did great playing the lead part. I must admit though that it's the rest of the cast that really did a superb job. Dan Stevens, Luke Evans, Ewan McGregor, Emma Thompson, Audra McDonald....they were just all awesome!

(Special mention: Be Our Guest was just such a fantastic cinematic experience, reminiscent of the old Hollywood musical.)

My fave song from the film:

What are your current faves?

Out and about in the city (picture-heavy)

It was a bit of a busy weekend, so I thought I'd share some pics:D

The Toronto Zoo was closed for 35 days due to a strike between the zoo board management and the union workers. It finally opened on June 15th, so I brought the kiddos back.

These guys blocked the Zoomobile! Hehe....

Some sporty activities before church:

 Went downtown:
Subway shots:D

 Eaton Centre

 Yonge-Dundas Square

 Walking along Yonge St.
 Inside Silver Snail comic bookstore

I would like to take this opportunity to wish my husband a belated Happy Father's Day. If you've been following my blog for awhile, you'll see that he's not in most pictures. Not only is it because he's not a big fan of the camera, it's also because he sacrifices a lot of days off to work, even on weekends. He does this to give me and the kids the opportunity to do all these fun activities.
