Thinking back to day 5, Thursday, at MTC 2015, it was our last day of excursions! We departed from the hotel early to arrive at the Bowmanville Zoo for a private showcase with an adorable lion and tiger cub. We sat in a large circle around the two cats while they playfully wrestled with each other. they would dart by us as if daring us to “catch me if you can!” We were separated into groups of 4 and we had the unique opporunity to touch, play and capture photos with these beautiful, playful cats. Some of the delegates were also given the opportunity to have a lemur (small monkey) sit on their shoulder. It was incredible and truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Thank you Bowmanville Zoo for giving the Miss Teenage Canada 2015 delegates the special memory and the opportunity to visit with the other animals in your zoo!
Next on the schedule was lunch at downtown Toronto’s EATON CENTRE. We were
sponsored tacos and burritos from the Richtree Natural Market’s Richtree Tacos and Burritos.I chose the Hearts of Palm Gluten free, vegan, vegetarian, high fibre, low calorie BURRRITO and it was delicious! Thank you Richtree Tacos and Burritos/Richtree Natural Market for hosting us!
We continued our shopping tour at the YORKDALE SHOPPING CENTRE. Awaiting us outside the main entrance to YORKDALE SHOPPING CENTRE was a lovely YORKDALE staff member with 82 YORKDALE gift bags. Each delegate was presented with a Gift Card for the Mall, a Points Card for the participating stores and booklet of coupons with amazing savings throughout the mall. And the best gift of all…We were given time to SHOP! Thank you YORKDALE SHOPPING CENTRE for your generosity and your gracious service.
We headed out from the YORKDALE SHOPPING CENTRE and my bus buddy anticipated that we would travelling in the direction of Medieval Times! She was right! At Medieval Times were were served a very large and incredibly tasty soup with garlic bread, chicken, corn and potato dinner followed by a butter tart that was too tempting to resist. The food was amazing and the performance was just phenomenal! Thank you for a wonderful dinner and show Medieval Times! It was another incredible memory to cherish from our Miss Teenage Canada 2015 Pageant week experience.
Thank you to Michelle and the Staff of MTC for an amazing week of excursions! I am truly thankful for this experience.
Keep tuned in,
