Cajun Fine Dining on Four Wheels - Sticky Ricky's

Posted 2 August 2015 by The Six Foot Canasian


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 Home Business Show - Cultivating Relationships

Posted 28 July 2015 by The Six Foot Canasian


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!

Cooking from the Heart - Heart's Choices Thai Vegan Cafe

Posted 26 July 2015 by The Six Foot Canasian


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.

The Art of Asian-Inspired Tattoo - Chiwon An

Posted 18 July 2015 by The Six Foot Canasian


When I got my first tattoo several years ago I knew it would not be my last. But it wasn’t until I met Chiwon An that I truly understood what it meant to proudly display art on my body.

Rockin' Muladhara Yoga Wear in the East Village

Posted 12 July 2015 by The Six Foot Canasian


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!

The motto of my life ... "EVERYTHING HAPPENS FOR A REASON".

Stampede Brings the World to the East Village

Posted 8 July 2015 by The Six Foot Canasian


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.

Happy 148th Birthday, Canada! - East Village

Posted 3 July 2015 by The Six Foot Canasian


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!

charbar - East Village Foodies Rejoice!

Posted 1 July 2015 by The Six Foot Canasian


I've lived in some of the most incredible cities in the world (i.e., Calgary, Toronto, New York, Chicago, Denver and all throughout Europe) and visited more countries that I can count ... and eating good food has always been top on my list of things to do wherever I go. In my travels I've had some of the most amazing culinary experiences, both in award-winning fine dining establishments and local eateries with amazing character and flair. charbar has very quickly moved to the top of my list!

Saluting the Sun at the East Village

Posted 1 July 2015 by The Six Foot Canasian


I've been in the fitness industry for over twenty years and have either taught or participated in thousands of yoga classes of various styles (i.e., Hatha, Ashtanga, Bikram, Moksha, Core Power and the list goes on and on) but there is just something magical about practicing yoga without walls, windows or mirrors getting in the way! Think about how "zen" it would be to truly salute the sun as you reach upwards to the endless sky, standing in Mountain pose on a mountain top or balance in Tree pose in a forest of trees ... breathtaking. And ... that's exactly what you get to experience when you drop by the East Village Experience Centre Deck on Tuesday at noon for their FREE Yoga class (and it's open to ANYONE who wants to join in on the fun)!!
