Lonely No More.
One thing that’s great about living in downtown Toronto is that you never really feel lonely.. even when you ARE alone.
Every Saturday morning, I visit Kensington Market and the number of conversations I have with the various shopkeepers are endless. From the butcher, to the baker and even the man who sells African Jewellery at the side of the street! Occasionally, I stop by Moonbean to have a cup of coffee, and I usually find myself engaging in conversations with other customers about all sorts of things that we would have in common.
Nearby Kensington Market, is Chinatown. By lunchtime, I am often CRAVING for a plate of Roast Duck with Won Tons and Noodles. Kings Noodle is a great place to visit. It’s clean and the food is very well prepared. If I am alone, I’ll usually share a table with someone and the past few times that I’ve been there, I’ve shared tables with people who were really talkative! After lunch, I’ll go to my favourite Chinese grocery shop to buy some cheap and well-priced fruits. Funny enough, most of the workers in this shop are from Malaysia and we have a great time talking about home.
Although it’s great to go to Kensington and Chinatown with a partner, sometimes.. it’s not that bad to go alone either!
