Picture above was taken by Junnie just after the subway took off… No editing done.
We got to Mississauga, after the shopping tour, just in time to get us dinner and enjoy the finals night of American Idol. I was rooting for Kat Mcphee while Junnie was for Taylor Hicks. Hehe!
It was really cold even under layers of clothes and sitting in Junnie and Mitzi’s nice condo overlooking Mississauga, having chicken and salad for dinner, and getting serenaded by Kat and Taylor on tv, I woudn’t have any other way to cap the day spent mostly on the road.

It was my first time to see Mississauga at daytime and I marvelled at the wide expanse of the place and how clean and quiet it was. After seeing their newly acquired house and how near it was to the Catholic church, the school, the wet market and the mall, it certainly looked like the perfect place to raise a family.
I wish we had this kind of waiting sheds in Cebu/Manila.
This is just outside Junnie and Mitzi’s condo, the perfect place for kids to run around and for families to just spend a lazy spring or summer afternoon after work walking their dogs or playing with the kids. You’ll get plenty of these parks and open spaces in Mississauga.
Here are some pictures from downtown Toronto that I took. If you see my face, it’s Junnie’s handiwork.

Museum? Terminal? Terminal!
Though what was supposed to be a few days in Mississauga got shortened to a night and a day, Junnie managed to show me most of what this place was all about. Its beauty, the peaceful surroundings and the wholesome community I saw made me want to stay longer. I was leaving the place wanting for more time to be in it, to be with Junnie and Mitzi and to see more of its attractions. Funny, but even before I could leave, I was already beginning to miss Mississauga.
