  4. CNY Japan: Day 1 

    Finally the start of CNY Break!! We started the holiday early, waking up at 7 to catch a plane to Osaka. After a long three hour nap we were finally there.

    I immediately got a few snacks for the train ride to the hotel. This included my two favorite chips and hot corn soup (Jason you’re missing out).

    Sadly, it was raining the whole day. Here’s dad (giving his creepy smile as usual) and mom (playing her iPhone game).

    This is our hotel view!! Such a good location, close to all the shopping malls and restaurants.

    We quickly unpacked and left to go shopping. It was really cold so I ended up buying a puffy jacket

    Mom bought one too (we were matching the whole day)

    It has only been 15 mins since we left the hotel and I already ended up with a full bag of clothes.

    We stopped at a ramen place to get dumplings, noodles and orange juice!

    The food was really yummy

    Then we left to do more shopping! it was still raining outside

    Dad got his fish snack as usual…

    And mom got a krispy kreme. Dad and I didn’t let her get one since we were going to eat dinner soon, but she then she ran inside

    Dad ended up getting one too… Mom and Dad eating and posing

    And then we did some more shopping… at beams (dad’s fav store)

    Dinner time!!!! Best part of the day!



    and me!!

    We had a lot of sushi

    yummy uni


    We stopped by Tokyo Hands afterward

  8. All-Time Best Cover: Must Watch!!! 

  9. My First (long) Food Blog

    So… This is the reason why i started a tumblr in the first place (so that I can share my findings)… Therefore, I present the top 10 places to eat in HK

    1. Cafe TOO at Shangri-La Hotel

    One of my favorite buffets in HK, Cafe TOO offers a variety of food (ranging from indian cuisine to chocolate fountains) that will make anyone satisfied. It’s a bit on the pricey side, but this place is definitely worth the money (esp when you come with big appetite). Recommended: It’s smart to make reservations beforehand DON’T JUST SHOW UP or you’ll have to wait fosho.

    Nick trying out their mini teppanyaki-style burgers

    2. Inagiku at IFC

    Again, this is def on the pricey side. My dad took me here for my birthday lunch, and I have been coming back ever since. I mostly go for brunch and order the foie gras teppanyaki set (a must try for the foie gras lovers)

    MMMmmm…. my favorite food 

    3. Entourage at Soho

    Have a urge to go out? Well this restaurant is the best place to eat before a night out. With its proximity to LKF (most imp. for me because I always wear heels) and unique drinks, Entourage is the place to go. 

    What to order? I highly recommend their beef carpaccio and for drinks: the Blackberry lavender martini (left) and their famous Lemon Pie cocktail (right)

    4. Saboten at Causeway Bay (bottom of Henry’s House)

    I love coming to this restaurant… With their famous Japanese cutlet, this is by far the #1 place to eat crispy, fresh pork chop. Their service is fast and environment is good, its always good to stop by after shopping in crowded CWB.

    Served with Jap rice (My fav!!!)

    5. Ding Tai Fung at (68 Yee Wo Street CWB)

    This is prob the restaurant my friends and I go to the most… They have the best hangover food! It’s tradition for me to go here for lunch after a good night out. Eating xiao long bao, dan dan mian (pictured below), spicy cucumber and drinking soy bean milk/fresh watermelon juice, this place always leaves me satisfied to go home and take a long nap.

    One of my fav. dishes 台式麻醬撈麵 

    6. Odeon Taiwanese Cafe 茶軒 at CWB Pearl City Mall

    This is my go to restaurant after/before watching a movie (MCL cinema is located above the restaurant). This restaurant offers good, cheap Taiwanese food and the service again is fast. My fav. things to get is their mince beef rice and bubble tea drink. It’s best to come here during the winter (my friends and I love getting some hot bubble teas then going upstairs to watch a movie). 

    7. Bubba Gump at The Peak

    I love coming to Bubba Gump at night (best time to see HK skyline)… My friends and I love coming here for dinner, then taking the Peak Tram down to Central to have drinks after. My routine order is: Pear & Berry salad, Baby Back Ribs, Cookie dessert and Strawberry Lemonade (Ofc I’m sharing this with ppl…) Recommended: Book early, and come on birthdays (the waiters get together to sing their own made-up birthday song) … or just say its ur bday and hear them sing.

    My fav. dish to end the meal with (Chocolate Chip Cookie Sundae)
    Download their menu here: http://www.bubbagump.com/assets/menus/hong-kong.pdf (it’s best to read their cookie sundae description!!)

    8. CAFFÉ VERGNANO 1882 .at Lee Gardens (CWB) or Elements

    One of the best spaghetti bolognese I’ve had in a while… (notice there’s more meat sauce than spaghetti itself yay)

    Dani and I having some for lunch :)

    9. Nomads at TST

    2 bad things about this restaurant: you must make reservations (or else there will be no seats for u…) and its pretty far from everything. This is prob one of the unique places in HK… offering Mongolian buffet (where else can you find a rest. like this?) and its all make it yourself style. You can create your own pizza, noodle, rice while making your own sauce too.

    Me and my bro’s fav. dish to make: A LOT of corn, a little bit of veg mixed with garlic and soy sauce

    10. Simply Thai at Times Square 

    Honestly this is not my favorite Thai Restaurant but I only come here for the dessert. And now for my all time fav sweet food…

    Banana Pudding!!! (Sounds and looks gross but I swear it tastes good)

    I’m DONE… And starving now what should I eat…?!!
