So while I was looking at new festive things to do for the winter, a friend of mine suggested to go to the Aurora Winter Festival at Ontario Place. Which the festival has been around for a few years now and I've never been to it until now. And I have to say that it is one of the best winter lights festival I have been to in Toronto. It was freezing cold on the day when I went but it was so much fun that it was worth going in the cold weather. There's so much to do at the festival with rides like the ferris wheel, carousel, a big long slide and even a skating rink for family and kids to enjoy skating in. The lights attraction was also beautifully arranged and you could even play games and win prizes. I'd definitely love to go back again next year in the winter time.

Another food review. Also saw this on blogto when I was bored at work, lol. I have been seeing these taiyaki ice cream on instagram everywhere and always wanted to try them. Finally there's one opened on Dundas and Bay so I went to try it out.
You can buy the signature taikyaki or build your own ice cream with different toppings! You can also get the ice cream on a taiyaki cone, ice cream cup or on a waffle cone. I'd recommend eating the ice cream really fast if you get it on the taiyaki cone cuz it melts pretty fast.
They also serve tea beverages too and if you order any matcha drink, there's a deal for buy one get one free during happy hour Mon-Fri from 1pm-4pm.
There's even a backdrop background with a pretty pink rose flowers wall for you to take the perfect picture to post on instagram. We asked the cashier which is the most popular signature taiyaki to get and the person said the unicorn is good for pictures but the best tasting one is the matcha. He's right about that. The unicorn taiyaki surely looks good in photo but did not taste as good. I'd like to go back to try a different flavour again when the weather gets warmer as it's too cold to eat too much ice cream now, lol.
