Vibrations: Find what you seek…

Dundas square, located at the intersection of Yonge Street and Dundas Street is Toronto’s version of New York’s Times Square. It is a loud, lively and frenetically cacophonous potpourri of a corner, overflowing with selfie obsessed tourists, city tour buses, zebra crossings, wide eyed Amish teens on Rumspringa,preachers proselytizing, buskers playing full drum kits, well-mannered felines available for selfies for a price, and mentally disturbed looking homeless people zombie walking through the crowds, mumbling to themselves.

A further nod to Times Square are the massive multi story television/media screens broadcasting colourful and flashy advertisements 24/7. I avoid this area like the plague.

One bright and sunny day, while on a stroll, I uncharacteristically found myself standing at the corner of Yonge and Dundas. I happened to look up and caught the tail end of what I assumed was a travel advertisement for India. The tag line read: “Find what you seek — Incredible India.”

A few days later, I somehow, once again, uncharacteristically, found myself walking past the intersection of Yonge and Dundas when I happened to look up and saw the tail end of an advertisement: “Find what you seek — Incredible India.”

Over the course of the next few weeks, as if guided by some invisible force, I continued to somehow find myself at this intersection. Each time I happened to look up I was greeted with, “Find what you seek — Incredible India.”

Several months after last seeing, “Find what you seek — Incredible India,” my schedule opened. When I have an opening in my schedule, I typically fly off to some far-off destination to eat and sleep. With that in mind, I bought a ticket to Hong Kong. I love Hong Kong. It’s a fantastic place to eat, and I had a hankering for Portuguese food, but I did not want to go to Portugal. I wanted to eat in Macao, a former Portuguese island colony a short boat ride from Hong Kong.
