Don't forget to taste the Chinese food in Toronto. It is supposed to be as good as they are in Hong Kong. Thanks for sharing the list of movies that you consumed.

I just had some for lunch today! It was definitely different from some of the cheap Chinese food I've had in New York; the noodles I had were drier, for one thing (not sure if that's good or bad).
