Canada's Wonderland
18 July 2010

Event: Muslim Festival

Today, we went to Canada's wonderland. There is a muslim day festival and live performance from Mesut Kurtis, Shaykh Al-Ninowy and Junaid Jamsheed at the Kingswood Theatre in Canada's Wonderland. Here is the journey to the Canada's Wonderland. :D

the subway at yorkdale

From our place we took st.patrick's subway to yorkdale. then from yorkdale we took a GO bus, straight to Canada's wonderland.

The GO bus

We can bring food from home, and eat outside the Wonderland not inside because they don't allow outside food. That's why people were picnic outside the wonderland. Everything in the wonderland is expensive. Thus, eat well before you go in.

picnicking outside the wonderland

The Canada's Wonderland. Here are some of the games they have. There is more, I just don't have time to walk all over the wonderland because it's too big. I arrived there at 1700, because the live performance start at 1830, it's late already. It doesn't matter to me cause I don't fancy this kind of game.LOL.

the pusing2

I don't play the extreme game as shown in the picture above. I just don't like it, and never will ride one. My type of game is like these game, the betting game or the monkey bear game. It's game that you play and win. Then, you will get something in return. That's totally me.hahaha.

As we arrived at the CN tower, I thought it's free, but it's not.hahaha. so we skip the CN Tower.
We went to the tourist information kiosk to ask about the harbor tour. Later, we get a ticket for the harbor tour and the city tour. For Niagara Falls we plan to drive, so we will use rental car.

Jet lag and the walk
15 July - 16 July 2010
Jalan-Jalan cari makan: Chinatown

Because of jet lag, we(my father, mother, sis and dad) didn't go out so much. We are tend to sleep rather than walk.hahaha. The jet lag take us 2 days to recover. The two days, we just go to the Chinatown to buy some groceries, that are just 10 minutes walk from our place. Along the way to the chinatown, there are lots of thing to discover. So, Let's enjoy the picture.

parking for bicycle
The bicycle's parking we can find it everywhere along the street because most of the people here use bicycle.

newspaper box

You also can find this newspaper box everywhere in the town. you can get free daily toronto metro, renter magazines, jobfinder magazines, house, health news and many more. It's very convenience.

the Art Gallery of Ontario(AGO) by Frank Gehry

the Art Gallery of Ontario(AGO) by Frank Gehry

We haven't explore this building yet. Maybe later as we have plenty of time here, even this is the nearest place to go. But as usual, the closer the place is, the later you go, right? lol

college of art and design

This school is situated just behind the AGO. It reminds me of my first year theater cafe project.haha.

Our favorite mart at chinatown, Lucky Moose

The first mart you'll see when you arrive with the cheapest price.

the chinatown

shark for sale

At Chinatown, you can find Asian flavor, spices, everything. It is just that if you buy chilli sauce here, it don't taste the same. Chilli sauce here taste more sour than hot& spicy.

next entry will talk about the harbor front, toronto island and wonderland. For now,back on hiatus.
