Award winning actress and TV presenter Ama K. Abebrese recently documented a diary of a trip to London and Italy here.
When I found out that she was due in Toronto for the screening of the latest film that stars Ties That Bind, I had to get to document this journey.
The independent film by writer and director, Leila Djansi, sees Abebrese share lead with Kimberly Elise and Omotola Jalade.
The trip to Toronto by the currently Ghana based, British actress was always bound to be interesting.
Read on for her diary.
After an 11 hour flight from Accra to Washington, I am to catch connecting flight to Toronto. At 6am and no make up and very tired, I bump into rapper Chamillionaire, we have a little chat, and he is such a nice fellow. We are now twitter buddies.
Touch down in Toronto, and in the limo cab on the way to the hotel.
Heading into Downtown Toronto. Such a lovely view.
Leila Djansi and I grab lunch at Avenue, Four Season’s in Yorkville.
I’m wearing a Giretta Mac jacket by K’NAF Couture. Wearing spring colours in the fall is so much fun.

A perfect outfit needs a perfect pair of shoes. For the screening I will be wearing these Agatha pumps by luxury handmade footwear line, Mo-saique as designed by Afua Dabanka.
