Last year, I was searching for souvenir from canada because my mom insisted that I should bring something back for my relatives. Of course, Canada is known for its "Maple Syrup" but I can't recall the last time I've used Maple Syrup or even purchased a bottle of Maple Syrup ? I remember the first time I went back to Hong Kong I bought some Maple Syrup cookies, which tasted pretty good. A box of cookies contains less than 10 cookies costs $7.00 CAD + tax. I would rather buy something else because it was just "pretty good" , it wasn't really that great.

So back to the main focus of this footprint is to talk about "The Distillery Historic District". As I was searching for something that is "Made in Canada" ( which was very difficult to find as many stores manufacture or import their products from China, India, Indonesia etc.), I somehow found a chocolate store located in "The Distillery Historic District" called "SOMA chocolatemaker". Then, an adventure begins as I search for the location of SOMA.

 And there I was, I made it to this place so called the Distillery District, and according to its website, it was constructed between 1859-1860. As I was finding my way to SOMA Chocolate, I saw some restaurants, galleries, gift shops, bakeries, clothing stores, wine shop, theatre, day care and sculptures being displayed on site. When I finally step into SOMA, I immediately fell for the essence of chocolate. Their chocolates were unique and worth to try, especially their drinks! After my trip to SOMA, I went on and explore more into the Distillery. I tried some icecream, looked at some jewlery, went to a mini gallery, and just enjoying my day in the Distillery! They also have occasional events and festivals being held in the Distillery, I highly recommend people to take a look at this place. Personally, I think It's a better attraction than the CN tower because I guarantee that you'll find at least one thing that appeals to you in there. It is also a great place to bring children and let them learn about canadian history as they walked through the Distillery.
