 July 23, 2013: The day was riddled with fun, serendipity and vintage. Lalaine and I ventured outside to Kensington Market. The first couple of hours, I spent desperately trying to meet up with her because the Lord knows I am hopeless with directions. My legs take me where they take me. We met a friend in the journey back and forth through stations, so it was a rather good start.

Kensington Market is visually great. It's splashes of colour and dust and wood. On the way there, we got ourselves some bubble tea and then some guy was giving out mini Starbucks drinks. Here is Lalaine with said drink.
What's extremely strange is that I didn't take any photos of all the clothing stores in Kensington! We went in quite a lot just to look inside and touch everything. There were many, many shops -all selling a variety of clothing looking from different periods of time, from handmade things like bags to old-fashioned and outdated articles of clothing. Kensington Market seemed to have it all for all things vintage except, strangely enough, for cameras it seems.
 Before heading out, I had a list in my head of things I wanted:

  • Local coffee
  • Bubble Tea
  • One something from Kensington Market
I got my usual from every coffee shop -a soy cafe mocha. One thing I've noticed is that I tend to take my coffee black now. I never did get my one something from Kensington Market even though we went inside the greatest store there:

 The Iceman Video Games store for new, used and retro games. It was amazing and I disgustingly nerded all over the concrete floor of gameness. The air smelled of sweet, sweet nostalgia.
Yep. It was a pretty good day.
