[Toronto] [Ontario] Welcome to any new Canadian posters

I am hoping some new Canadian posters will be joining us here.

If you’re new to HO, please introduce yourself.

I’m Phoenikia, formerly known as Prima on Chowhound.

Jammy here. I forgot that I signed up on this site a very long time ago, scatterbrain that I am.

Anyway, HELLO!

Hi, Phoenikia. I was a long time lurker on CH wHen you were Prima and always enjoyed your posts. Financiere here living in Alberta but I try to get to points west (Vancouver especially) and east when I can, and hopefully soon. But right now, anything to have a thriving Canadian site, I’m all in.

Nice to meet you, @Financiere!

Thanks for your note. HungryOnion has a few threads on Vancouver, Vancouver Island and Banff.
I usually visit Alberta every year, and I was trying to help @Harters plan his Banff visit before the pesky Pandemic interrupted travel!

Welcome, @gnuf!
Everyone, I met @gnuf at 93 Harbord in 2006, at my first Chowhound meetup :slight_smile: He is an exceptionally talented baker.

So good to see all the Canadian Hounds on Hungry Onion.

We used to have a thriving China/Southeast Asia board on Chowhound, too, but the restructure of CH had sadly decimated our community. I was the only survivor from that board - a Hound of 15 years - now posting actively on HO’s Asia-Pacific board.

Do drop by and say “Hi” when you come by our way. Always good to meet a fellow Hound.

@klyeoh , hopefully you , @THECHARLES and some other members can help build the SE Asia, Hong Kong and China threads on HO.

I send a Malaysian friend who lives in Toronto some of your HO posts, to keep him and his wife in the loop for their next visit.

I hope so, too. Once the borders re-open - and I hope it’ll be soon - I have to go back to Singapore, and also visit Hong Kong again. It’s been too long since I’d caught up with Chowhounds - the last time we got together was when Alpha Hound, Jim Leff, paid us a visit in Singapore in 2017.

The last Chowdown in Hong Kong which I attended was organized by @THECHARLES - more a decade ago already. At the time, we had a thriving Chowhound community there - every single food personality in HK was a member. I missed some great Chowdowns which Charles organized earlier as I travelled extensively for my work at the time. For this meet, I remembered that I flew from San Francisco back to Singapore after a two-week assignment, changed my luggage contents and flew to HK the next day just to be there in time!

Highlyunlikely checking in! So sad to see that Chowhound is shutting down. I’ve been a member since “The Beginning”, though not always an avid poster. You will always be Prima to me! :slight_smile:

Nice to see you here, @Highlyunlikely . I absolutely remember your posts. :slightly_smiling_face:

Nice photos!

This was my 70th birthday present to myself. Ruined by Covid. And the moment has now probably passed (although I still have the recommendations for Banff & Vancouver - just in case).

A warm welcome to the new joiners. Hope you have fun here.

I hope it works out at some point. I’m hoping to visit Banff and Calgary this fall. Here are 2 photos from my last visit to Banff and Kananaskis, in Nov 2019.


These are some photos from Jasper in Feb 2020, the last time I was outside Ontario.
