Back in 2012, as many of our close friends and family know, Mr A and I took off away from Singapore for more than 2 months celebrating my 21st in Paris, then flew over to London, visited A’s mommy in Canada and drove up to New York. Mr A had served the Nation for 2 years and as for me, I can finally call myself a diploma graduate, after much suffering for 3 years in Ngee Ann Polytechnic, we were much needed for a getaway. There were way too many places we visited during our vacation but I’ll start off with one of the 7 NATURAL wonders of the world – Niagara Falls. Hopefully slowly I will show you what we did on all the other places (it did took me 3 years to even write about this trip :P) It seemed so long ago, but the times I had felt like it was just yesterday!
I heard that one of the best views of Niagara Falls is to be standing on the Ontario, Canada side, cuz you will be able to see the best of both worlds: Niagara Falls New York & Niagara Falls Ontario. Here’s what I meant *points below*
My mom joined us one month after our trip, when we already settled down in Canada, with the casinos around, I think I just made my mother the most happiest woman around town. It was my first time actually buying for someone else a full fare ticket, which other person I would ever buy for if it wasn’t my mother.
A’s mommy and my momma instantly became best friends when they met and I think this was the peak of their relationship together, posing like how pretty young ladies would do. ❤ A’s mama has always been so sleek and awesome with what she wears, she never fail to dress me up with her clothes and jackets and boots when I was around in Canada. I remember the times we would just drive out to the nearest shopping area and hunt for vintage clothes and have so much fun chucking those bags in the yellow Volkswagen Beetle.
Momma will never stop trying to be foolish around the camera.
To my sexy Mr A, sorry you had to leave your work after 6 months and not getting those awesome bonus the company had to offer, however, I’m sure our 2 months break was more well deserving than any amount of money given to replace it.
Here is our special star of all our photos in Canada, little man Daniel. Mr A’s only younger brother to depend on to bully and play jokes on and of course watch cartoons together. Their frequency are on the same page.
I remember how clingy he was to us and his never ending kisses he would generously give to everyone, even to his brother, on the lips. *not shy at all*
We had a good walk all the way to Maid of the Mist, hoping that it would open during the fall season…
Fat hope 😦
Heard so much good reviews of the maid of the mist, another reason to come back again someday.
The Oaks Hotel overlooking the Falls was one of the bestest hotels we stayed during our trip. The view was magnificent.
Saying byebye after we freshened up and headed over to explore Clifton Hill.
It is a free walkway to visit around these colourful attractions, you can either buy a pass or pay individually at every attraction door.
I bet it wasn’t easy looking after a rascal and two big babies during this trip.
at Harley Davidson’s shop.
The famous Sky Wheel Niagara Falls behind us. I came to realise not only London Eye and Singapore Flyers, apparently this observation wheel is almost anywhere around the world.
Covering those fat cheeks of mine, can’t deny that I’ve gained so much weight during the vacation. Eat, shop, sleep all day everyday.
The atmosphere was just superb, we didn’t really need to go in most of the attractions, we felt happy just looking at it!
Mother and son conversation.
That poutine friessssssss ❤ ❤ ❤ it’s so unhealthy but the amount of cheese melting in your mouth is to die for! I remembered one of my bestie Joannie told me not to forget to try these poutine when I was in Canada, boy it was super yummy!
Guess what we were waiting for…
The Niagara Falls show right in front of our hotel room view! Too pretty!
Tried hard to focus on his face but failed miserably, atleast I got the fireworks in your fav colour honey.
Not to forget that A’s step dad was on the trip with us, he was the only one who wasn’t a camwhore like the rest of us.
We decided to try out this haunted house together, it was super dark we couldn’t see anything, real humans were actually standing inside screaming and trying to hold our arms and hair.
And so, we got hungry….time to go Indian tonight.
They had such good butter chicken and naan!
After dinner, we took a stroll down the park.
The morning after, Mr A and I decided to bring our mommies for a walk while Daniel was still sleeping, we sneaked out and decided to have a stroll near the falls again, the walk was never enough, it was so good to be true.
Of course, this big baby of mine wanted to stand on the tree, so he need help pushing his bumbum up…
Now the weather is confused between Fall and Winter, but I loved these shots taken by A’s momma.
I loved how we ran across the waterfall mist and gotten ourselves all wet just to be close to the fall and enjoy the moment, it was our monthly date 10th which made it even more special.
❤ The four of us
It was time to take the drive back to our home in Toronto, Ontario. We split into 2 cars so we don’t have squeeze and be all mushy with one another, A was happy he got the yellow beetle to drive me around. This was one of our pit stops before home.
We made a little detour to this little lane and had late lunch. We were all so shagged and hungry by then.
The town was really nice and the weather was just perfect, felt a little Europe all over again.
If there was one thing I miss the most in Canada, it would be this car right here, how Mr A would drive and we would sing to all the songs played on the radio, looking at the pretty houses and admiring just nature itself. The first time I left hand drive illegally was right here in this beetle, you should have seen the joy in my face that I could actually make a car move. Such good memories. 🙂
Goodbye Niagara Falls, til’ we meet again someday.
