Oh to have a fever in the City when it’s +40° C

Another hot weekend! And to boot, I came down with the flu. Achy everything; sore as sin throat; fever. Fever is so wonderful when the outside temperature is +40°C with the humidex and you’ve no central air. So, Friday and Saturday were – literally – spent in bed. Slept a whopping 22 hours straight Friday thru Saturday.

Today I did venture out with G as I was feeling a gazillion times better, thank gawd!

We visited the construction site and saw the million dollar condo is coming along well
.. omg, save money!

You couldn’t pay me a million dollars to live right downtown Toronto (bleck, ick!) but if forced to, I’d probably pick Spire … it’s so pretty. The picture of St. James Cathedral with the CN Tower in the background was neat cause it looks like someone photoshopped the Tower in eh?

1) Spire Condominium; 2) St. James Cathedral with CN Tower

After antiquing at St. Lawrence North (I was keen on buying the ice crusher I saw there two weeks ago but it was gone), we headed to Chinatown for some wonton noodle soup and ja leung. G has been on a mission for a month for ja leung. Success was found at Gold Star! Yummy! FYI: Toronto has the largest Chinatown of any in all of North America.

3) ja leung; 4) a renewed market reopens complete with dragons!

On the way back down from Fairview Mall this afternoon, I thought of willariah‘s homage to the ridiculousness that is TTC advertising and took a shot of this entry into that hall of shame. It’s almost as if the TTC’s marketing director and it’s entire marketing department is stuck in the 1950s. I do know the TTC’s marketing director actually and I’m …. well, I’m not going to say anymore than that.

    I thought Vancouver had the largest asian community thus a bigger chinatown?

    Hope you are feeling better and soon. I am not a good sick person to be around. I just want to be alone when I don’t feel well.  Love the food. You seem to find the best places.
    RYC: I like you fill in the blank – make sense.
