Day 01 in Toronto for the Lion King Musical~  

I'm currently in Toronto with Tessa and Lisa to attend the Lion King musical which will be held tomorrow at the Princess of Wales Theatre~

But since I didn't want to drive (and I would be the only driver), we ended up taking the Megabus to get there!! It's a double decker bus equipped with air conditioning, electrical plugs, free Wi-Fi and seatbelts!!

Here's a picture that I took of our bus (it says "TORONTO" but it's been reflected and we're sitting in the first two seats on the right).

What amused Tessa and I greatly was the "in case of emergency call" I mean, when you're in an EMERGENCY?!

Tessa and I were able to snag the first seats on the second level so I was nausea free!! It started to rain soon afterwards so the windows became fogged up, which was fine since the two of us played Hangman... And Tessa died... Twice... For "museum" and "dinosaur"

We're currently staying at the Hilton Garden Inn hotel which is located in Downtown Toronto in the fashion district <3 There's a lot of weird and neat things that we saw along the way as we were walking to our hotel such as the picture that I took of the three skeletons and the "Hug Me" tree X3


The three of us proceeded to walk to China Town and Tessa and Lisa ended up dragging me to one of the anime stores that was there (I must say, that anime store is a lot more superior to the ones that we have back in Montreal). I asked one of the people who worked there for a place that would be good to eat and he suggested we go to "Kings Noodle"...

We ended up ordering eight different dishes thinking that they were the same size proportions to the ones that we have in Montreal... OMG! THEY WERE HUGE PORTIONS!! We couldn't end up finishing all the food (let alone get all the foods that we ordered in one shot)... Crazy Toronto people and their diets!! *is bloated as hell* Luckily we have a fridge and a microwave in our hotel room <33

There was a GIANT poster of Jack Sparrow to advertise the release the next installment of the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise <33 And then there was this weird sculpture that was protruding from the building which was for the Toronto Blue Jays ^^;;


Our next destination was the CN Tower and it was still raining, that added with some evil fog clouds (which you can see in these pictures that I've taken here as were were approaching the edifice.


But when we got there, the attendant told us that the visibility is zero up there and wouldn't be worth the money to go up to see. So we opted to the motion theatre ride instead :3 We got spritz with some water when we "hit" the water ^^;;

The saddest bit was that despite the three of us following the "EXIT" signs, we still ended up getting lost trying to leave the motion theatre portion of the building *fails* But we did manage to see this really cool picture!! It's one of those things that looks like it moves when you walk by it <33 So there was something pretty out of getting lost!!

And this is the CBC building that we saw in Toronto, the CTV building is much cooler!! I didn't get a chance to take a picture of it today for the CTV television station, but I will before I leave Toronto on Thursday~!

Tomorrow we plan on going to the Toronto Eaton Centre, the Royal Ontario Museum, and then see the Lion King musical at the Princess of Wales Theatre~
