My fondest memories of living in the United States included hot summer days with my best friends (and volleyball teammates), refreshing margaritas and authentic Mexican food. My mouth is watering just thinking about zesty salsa and chips, table side hand-smashed guacamole and fish tacos with freshly made flour tortillas. When I moved back to Calgary last year I was sad to leave that behind ... until I found Añejo!

It's hard to miss the Sticky Ricky's food truck rolling down Calgary streets in the summer time! With its Louisiana State University (LSU) inspired colours and shiny exterior you would think a party is coming to town. But ... don't let the purple food truck or compostable food containers fool you! What these guys dish out every day is pure culinary genius!

Calgary may be known as Canada's "energy capital" but a growing number of entrepreneurs, armed with an innovative spirit and desire to make their passion their career, are also doing their part to grow and expand the city's economy! With the oil and gas sector showing its vulnerability this past year it's no surprise more and more people are investing less in commodities and more in themselves by starting up their own home-based business!

The day I stumbled into Heart's Choices Thai Vegan Cafe after hot yoga (with "yoga brain" in full effect) I knew in my gut there was something very special about this place. It wasn't until today that I truly understood the reasons why.

When I first moved back to Calgary there were three things that I needed to find RIGHT AWAY ... an apartment, a vehicle and a place to practice hot yoga. Moksha Yoga Calgary was the first thing I checked off that list!

I can admit ... the Calgary Stampede is an unlikely place for a six foot tall CanAsian. I've lived in Alberta for a total of ten years (four of them in Calgary) and I feel as though I'm in my own version of "Where's Waldo?" when I visit ANYTHING country. There aren't many Asians intentionally wandering around Lammle's looking for a belt buckle or cowboy hat (let alone steer wrestling, bullriding or racing a chuckwagon) and I am typically one of very few at the bar singing along with Garth Brooks and/or attempting to line dance or two-step on the dance floor.

Thank goodness Mother Nature decided to behave for this year's Canada Day! Considering we had some of the scariest thunder and lightening the night before ... Canada Day 2015 was one for the books ... especially in Downtown Calgary's East Village!
