Well, you can’t really tell from the pic above (before on left, after on right) that my old Takamine G306 needed a bit of help, but you could tell when you

Snappy Fridays – Toronto’s Distillery District

Just walking around a neighborhood that I haven’t been in for a while. Enjoy!

There was a concert going on for the world cup of hockey tournament. 

Alvin’s RPOTD: Dinner Tonight…

Here’s a totally random photo… I cooked myself a quick dinner in 25 mins after I got home somewhat late and everyone had already eaten. Recipe below…
Hard boil an egg (if you prefer).  

While the egg is boiling, coat your pork chop with a 1 egg white and 2 teaspoon lemon juice mixture, then lightly coat top and bottom of Pork chop with a prepared mix of flour, salt, pepper and a bit of baking soda (I don’t know the exact measurements…but approx. 2 tbsp flour, 1 tsp baking soda and salt and pepper to taste) Fry on medium heat in a preheated pan with canola oil, approx 5-6 mins/side. (The oil should be bubbling and surrounding the pork chop to ensure you brown the batter)

When your boiled egg is cooked (approx 15 mins), drain excess water with enough left in your pot to prepare ramen per package directions. The water should still be boiling hot, so you can toss in the noodles right away!  Add greens (bok choy!) If you wish just before the noodles are cooked. 

Place your cooked ramen in a bowl, add a slice of process cheese on top. Add hard boiled egg and your sliced pork chop to complete your dish.

Enjoy!

Erika getting prepped for her big day!

Hi, everyone!  I spent the day snapping pics of my long time friend, Erika, today!  As you can see, it was her wedding day!  So I was under a semi “media blackout” – haha!

I haven’t forgotten the bicycle race pics – I dropped off my rolls of film yesterday afternoon and I’m hoping they will be scanned and ready for next week. Also, this weekend is chock full of stuff for me to do, so I’ll be posting more pics next week.

In the meantime, please follow our photographic adventures by subscribing here and follow us on instagram (Me – alvin_villanueva and JP – gta86).  Also put a like on our Facebook page!

Labour Day is commonly known as the last long weekend of the summer in Canada and the U.S.  Most people head out of town to cottages or to camp.  This year, because I am doing a bit more travel than expected, I stayed in town.
What to do in Toronto?  Well there are plenty of things to do!  The CNE (locally known as “The Ex”) is still running, and for the first time, the annual Epilepsy Toronto Buskerfest ran this weekend at Woodbine Park.  But before heading over to the Buskerfest, my girlfriend and I decided to go to church, then have lunch.
