As a tireless talker and a hyperactive dancer , it is not very surprising how I ended up becoming an events host here in Regina. My first ever legit hosting gig was a "Singled Out"-inspired dating segment during a big celebration at the university. For my young readers, Singled Out was a dating game show on MTV in the 90's. I had to put my good-looking friends on the spot and made them look for love for the enjoyment of a thousand giggly eyes. Until this very moment, I still don't know how I was able to convince them to come on stage and be a part of it. When you're in college, you do things because you want to give it a shot or either there is a group of people pushing you to do things aka peer-pressure! When I had that hosting gig, I did not gyrate to my heart's content. I was just making fun of myself and just kept blabbering on stage. I wish I showed them my killer moves then and what could have changed.
Fast forward to 2016 and I have gone all out on my craziness on stage. I feel that it is part of entertaining and I am actually happy to be able to do it. The stage makes me feel alive and you guys know that I always go to where I feel most alive.
Most recently, I hosted Ethel Booba's concert at the Orr Centre here in Regina. The show was aptly titled The Magic of Ethel Booba Canada Laftrip 2016.
Below are the photos from the event:
Built in 1927, Hotel Saskatchewan is the oldest hotel in Regina. Queen Elizabeth II, The Rolling Stones and VitoriVita have stayed here. Kidding aside, I am in awe of the elegance that is Hotel Saskatchewan and I am very proud to witness its announcement as a new Autograph Collection Hotel.
So what does it mean to be an Autograph Collection Hotel? It means that a hotel has bold originality, rich character, and uncommon details. Hotel Saskatchewan's early 20th century architecture boasts of its unparalleled sophistication but stays true to its never-changing values and world-class service.
Hotel Sask's General Manager, Colin Perry, told CBC News that the intent of it's $12 million facelift was not to change the character of the hotel but enhance it.
On a fun note, I had such an amazing time at the Hotel Sask Annual Reception last night as we were serenaded by the lovely Kaitlyn Semple while enjoying our cocktails and hors d'oeuvres. Hearing her beautiful voice was like time-traveling to the 1920's when everything was grand yet refined.
For the visual ecstacy, Abiding Lines Dance Company entertained the guests with their graceful dance moves. They made the attendees' jaw drop in awe and you can count me in.

Below are some snaps from last night's happenings.
Thanks to Katie Bially, Hotel Saskatchewan's freshest Social Media Consultant for the invitation. I had so much fun!
Cooking is not my thing at the moment. Not that I don't enjoy doing it but because I would prefer to do other things rather than cook. Plus with my recent diet, I don't feel obliged to cook because 2 out of 3 meals are done via my NutriBullet. How convenient, ey?
So when Joseph said that his roommate, Mithing, is cooking "escabeche" for supper. I immediately jumped out of the couch and got ready. I was so in for something beyond my scrambled eggs. Hahahahaha!
For a little bit of suspense, Joseph and I went to Cornwall Centre to buy some stuff for his Eurotrip this September. You can see that he likes preparing things ahead of time and he seems to get things in order. His living space translates to how he is. On the other hand, I did not find anything special that I wanted to buy at the mall. I thought I'd just get something in Vancouver when I go there the first week of August. But I still tried my luck on shopping that day and went to The Bay and then Marshalls but there was really nothing that I really really liked. So I kissed shopping goodbye that day.
Because Mithing requested for some bell peppers to add to her escabeche, Joe and I went to Save On Foods to get the much needed ingredient. I also took the time to get some pineapples and buy some chicken wings and a dessert for all of us.
When we got to Joe and Mithing's condo, I was famished. The smell of the escabeche was to-die-for. It brings back good memories because it reminded me of My Papa who cooks the best escabeche in the world. I was so surprised that Mithing also cooked some sautéed squash with small slices of pork. Which happened to be another of my favorites! Can I ever get any luckier to have friends who cook?
As soon as everything was set. We just dig in. But first - WEFIES! For some of you who do not know what wefies are. Urban Dictionary defines it as a selfie but with 2 or more people. Brilliant!
Eating time was the best part! My tummy was the happiest.
And the star from last night's supper was this Tuxedo Truffle Mousse cake from Save On Foods! It was so good I had to ditch my diet and just tell myself to "YOLO!"
