Weekly Photo Challenge: Lunchtime

Its late over here to talk about lunchtime but this week’s Weekly Photo Challenge is exactly that.  During the week, my lunch is simple, usually with leftovers from the night before and on Friday, that wasn`t the case because I slept in and ran out the door with an overabundance of toasts with peanut butter smeared on two slices and strawberry jam on the other two along with 2 granola bars.  So, feeling ashamed of not making a good lunch, I didn’t take a picture of it.

On the weekends, I don’t usually have lunch however I dig brunches.  I’ll even make them myself because its easy and delicious.  On some Saturdays, I’ll even head out with friends to brunch together. Today, I decided to keep it simple and make myself a nice little brunch.  I was going to make pancakes but decided against it since I wasn’t feeling extremely hungry.

Today`s Brunch with scrambled eggs, leftover chicken from last night`s dinner and toast with strawberry jam!

Doesn’t that look delicious?!? I think it does at the least.

There was one particular lunch/brunch that I’d eventually want to make on my own that I had at this new(ish) place called Allo Mon Coco which is their special omelet and its packed with sausages, bacon and ham..super huge and overload of meat (and fat) but it was tasted amazing!

Whether lunch or brunch, there has to be some soothing tea to boost up my day.

I had this on Boxing Day 2012 and it was well needed, little did we know we’d have to stand in line in -30 degrees Celsius for 30 minutes waiting to go into Walmart.  My best friend thought it was crazy (so did I) but it was quality time together 🙂

What do you usually have for lunch? What does your favorite lunch consist of?

Weekly Photo Challenge: Today

This is definitely change: TODAY! (I postponed it a few times so now I’ll extend the post a bit)

I’m going to twist the notion of this topic a bit from what the topic wanted us to do as I was sitting in front of the computer stressing out and overwhelmed with the workload that’s around me. At the same time, getting immensely frustrated over some of my clients. So lets show you a slice of my wonderful Friday to start things off and end off with Saturday.

FRIDAY (The TODAY that I had started putting together this post)

For starters, right outside my office is yet another film setting, which is rushing in preparation for filming supposedly this weekend for Smurfs 2.  They  have put a crosswalk on the intersection; changed the mailboxes to yellow ones (maybe more Parisian, I’m not really sure); conversion of two ground level offices to stores; placement of tables and chairs on the sidewalk; Pharmacie sign put up in front of one of the entrances.  I had to take these pictures away from the setting as there was a lot of security around there and sometimes they don’t let you take pictures, so please excuse the quality.

Here are some snapshots of the settings, props, etc:

This was the only picture I could get that showed it was Smurfs filming.

After work, its the usual Dragonboat practice with my team.  Dragonboat is seriously amazing.  Its a sport I’m proud to be part of and I’m extremely passionate about.  Its also what motivates to keep working out on a regular basis.  Here’s a few shots of the Olympic Basin on Parc Jean Drapeau where I have my practices.

Note that this is not my team. I don’t think I would ever bring my camera on the boat.

Just to give an idea of what dragonboating looks like if you have no idea.

 My Friday was really busy so I didn’t end up posting this up till now.  As I only got back home at 3am on Saturday morning.

So lets looks at SATURDAY!!

The big thing on this “today” was preparing and attending a wedding as my mom’s +1 (and chauffeur).  So here’s a few snapshots from the wedding venue:

 TODAY wasn’t much to say, I did finally get to sit down and upload all the pictures for this post.  Sorry for the delay and therefore, twisting the TODAY topic a little bit. Nonetheless, hope everyone enjoyed it and had a fantastic weekend!
