The Fall season is here and the Fall colours have arrived. What best way to celebrate this beautiful season than to visit Guildwood Park. The beautiful Guildwood Park at the east end of Toronto Ontario, Canada. The park is famous for its collection of magnificent but sometimes forgotten architecture that defined Toronto as a city in the 19th and 20th Century. Common here are facades of major banks from Downtown Toronto that now reside in this picturesque park. Click here or the image above to see the rest of the collection. Hope you enjoy the photos and stay tuned for some more Fall photos!

After being away for a very long time, I'm back! Now, we have a new photo set in Gello Photography. I realized that I've been cooking quite a lot lately and I decided to take pictures of the food that I cook while it is cooking and/or when it is cooked. I named the photo set "Who Said Men Can't Cook?" because I felt that normal everyday men like me are not really known for being good in the kitchen (except the male chefs of course). Also because amongst my group of friends, I'm currently the only one who can and willing to cook. This photo set is meant to encourage more men to cook not just for themselves but also for the ones they care about. Who knows, being good in the kitchen could be a good source of extra points for your girlfriend ;-) With that said, click on the photo above to see the rest of the collection. There's only a few photos up at the moment but expect this collection to grow in the coming months as I continue to cook more delicious dish! Enjoy and stay hungry!
 
 
Where do you go if you're craving Japanese noodles for lunch? A noodle house of course. Kenzo Noodle house is a famous Japanese Noodle house in Bloor St. just outside UofT. They serve, well, you guessed it, noodles - and darn good ones too.

The restaurant was a little on the small side but it was not so bad and the interior was pretty cozy too, fitting environment for a noodle house. It gets pretty busy during the lunch rush with students and workers alike flocking the small house for some lunch noodles. Despite the chaos, the wait staff was quite calm and welcoming finding everyone seats very fast. Kudos Kenzo!
The menu was not very big which makes choosing easier and faster especially during the peak hours. I got myself the Yakisoba Noodle for this visit. I had yakisoba noodles before in other places but I wasn't expecting what I got. A generous serving of it was served on a sizzling hot plate topped with loads of meat and vegetables. It also had thin onion peels that flapped around due to the heat which added to the presentation. I thought the plate was alive when it arrived on my table. You have to see this in action! The taste just added to the goodness. The noodles were very fresh and the toppings were also fresh. The taste for me was just right and the generous serving makes this a filling lunch item for the price - us uni folks don't have a lot of money to spend you know.
Kenzo Noodle House was a delight. Despite getting there during the lunch rush, the friendly wait staff, and the awesome food made it all worthwhile. Definitely worth a look and I will definitely come back to try out the other items on the menu. Kudos Kenzo!
 
 
There's a new food place in UofT! I stumbled upon this new establishment as I was walking down College St. to get my usual shawarma dinner. The name of the new spot is "The Saj." Intrigued by this new sight, I walked inside to see what's up. It's just like any typical food place on campus where you go to the counter and order your food. Some cool design on the wall adds a nice touch.What makes this place unique though is the way they serve the food. The Saj offers wraps and pizza. There are different kinds of pizzas like cheese, pepperoni, and their special one, The Saj pizza. All pizzas are served as a whole and for the price, I say they are worth it. I haven't personally tried the wraps since this was my first time there.
So what is unique about this place? When you order an item (pizza or wrap), they bake the bread in front of you. They whip out some dough, put it in a baking machine to bake either the pizza crust or the wrap, and put the ingredients all in front of you. This is a welcome change from the typical pre-made stuff that other places offer. The cook time may be longer but the food is super fresh and tastes better because of its freshness. The staff is also very friendly which is always a great thing especially for a new establishment.
I ordered "The Saj" pizza for $6.99 which was a 12-inch pizza, enough to feed 2-3 people for lunch. For that price, it was a steal! I had to choose which meat goes on the pizza and two types of veggies. I chose chicken, mushrooms, and green peppers (see photo below). It was amazing to see the whole process from ordering to baking to receiving the box of fresh pizza. And the taste? Wonderful! One of the freshest pizzas I've tasted in a while and it's not as greasy as the pizzas of the other major brands. Healthier!
Overall, The Saj is a very cozy place to hang out, get some work done, and of course, eat some fresh healthy food cooked fresh right in front of your eyes. I can totally see myself and my friends coming back for more.
 
 
My last post was way back in September. I've been very busy with school since then and haven't even able to take any new photos. But all that is now over and I'm certainly enjoying the first days of my winter break :). So to kick things off, I will release all outstanding photos that I have from the summer in the coming days. I'm super excited to get out on photo walks and take new pictures. Now that it's winter, there are lots of very nice photos that can be taken in and around the beautiful city of Toronto. So for starters, here are some more photos from the Roundhouse. The Roundhouse is a former train roundhouse that is now turned to a park where several cool looking trains are kept on display and this is also where the Steam Whistle brewery is located. So here they are! Hope you like them =). Click any of the pictures above to see the entire collection.

Here's another update for the Beautiful Toronto Project! I originally intended to go to the Distillery District and take photos there but I accidentally took a wrong turn and ended up in the city's industrial harbour area. Factories, constructions, and even parks are found here. So I took a stroll in this area and took photographs. Click on the photo above to see what I ended up taking pictures of! Hope you like them as much as I do! Until next time. More photos are being edited and are on their way.

New content added to the Beautiful Toronto Project. This time I was taking photos on the Tall Ship Kajama, Toronto's only Sailing Cruise. A very relaxing 2 hour cruise around the Toronto Islands with an awesome view of the Toronto Skyline. Click the photo above to see the photos I took! And as usual, more photos are on their way to the Beautiful Toronto Project. In fact, I have over 3 batches in queue to be released =P. So stay tuned! And one last note, there will be a new addition to my equipment! Find out what it is in a few days :). Until next time. Keep shooting!
 
 
So last week, I said that I was one of the first ones in North America to try the CN Tower's newest thrill attraction, and highest in that respect, the Edge Walk. I posted a photo of me hanging on the edge of the tower at a height of 356m above the ground. Now, I have a video showing myself during the Edge Walk. It's edited obviously to keep the video run time minimum, but hope you guys like the video! PS. more photos are definitely on their way! I just finished processing photos from an Auto Show here in Toronto and can't wait to show them to you guys! Until next time!

I DID IT!
Three words: I DID IT! Yes that's right folks! I walked the edge! The highest attraction of its kind in the world, CN Tower's EDGE WALK. The experience was definitely something that should not be missed (add this to your bucket list)! The walk lasted about 30 minutes for me and it was the best 30 minutes ever! Great unobstructed view of the city and best of all I was at the edge of the tallest structure in the Western Hemisphere! The photo above is a shot of myself leaning back from the edge and I have to tell you, you need to experience this to fully appreciate how great this is! Also stay tuned for a short video of myself walking around the edge!
