In the making of my sister's rice necklace. You think it's hard to to write letters on rice? He writes Chinese characters too!!! I saw the pen he uses, the sharpest pen ever. He charges $12 for the necklaces which I think is very fair because it's something custom made and you are paying for real art!!! Ahh.. I would've gotten one if I didn't already have one hehe.
Super Dog show!!! I've been watching this show every year for the past 3-4 years! They change it up slightly every year but I can never get bored of watching it. Let me warn you though, if you want a good seat, you have to start lining up for the show half an hour early.
At the end of the show, you get to see some of the dogs up close and pat them too =D I want a dog but my family thinks they are too dirty. Here are two clips I took of the show as requested by a follower =)
On to the food portion! Most raved about food item this year is deep fried butter! So I had to have my own oder of it right? *chuckles* We also got chocolate covered bacon and deep fried Mars bar. It's $5 a plate - kinda pricey but it's fair food so the price was expected. We waited 35 minutes in line in the freezing cold just to try out these heart clogging food! See what I do for my blog and your entertainment? Just kidding =p But after we got the food, we had to go inside the building to keep warm lol.
I really enjoyed this one. I do think it was hyped up way too much but nonetheless very yummy. I wasn't expecting it to be sweet but it was! While indulging on it I felt the melted butter! So worth the $5 and will buy again next year!
I don't get this one. It's chocolate and bacon. I can distinctively taste both in my mouth so I don't know what's this "perfect blend of sweetness and saltiness" that people are talking about :s Just imagine having one bite of chocolate and one bite of bacon. There you go, not worth the $5. Also, the weather was so cold that the chocolate hardened immediately lol.
This was so sweet that my teeth were about to fall off -.-'' I don't like the regular Mars bars for the same reason and this was no better. It was mushy on the inside because of the melted chocolate and caramel. If they had deep fried KitKat then I probably would've really enjoyed it =D Skip this if you don't like Mars bars.
Inside the Direct Energy Center was a Kobe beef stand. Apparently Kobe Bryant was named after their beef from Japan? Interesting... and it tastes just like.. regular hot dog! The beef was actually very fine tasting and you can tell the difference between this and say a hotdog from a downtown vendor. But at almost triple the price ($7), I don't know if it's worth it. I'd skip this if you are not a crazy hot dog or beef fan.
Lastly, I saw this tent at CNE and what do you know? Another ad Helen had worked on in school =) My professor actually made a campaign for this radio station and our assignment was only to rearrange the elements from her ad and give it a different vibe. So the idea for this ad is not mine.
*Note the microphone is actually a hairbrush. Ahaahaaa. It's suppose to have a 60's, 70's and /or 80's vibe to it since it's retro music - vinyl get it? Okay bye.
