My Worst Addiction

I’m a slave to chocolate, and by extension ice cream, cake, and a whole slew of sweet desserts. This holiday and particularly during my trip to Scandinavia during the past two weeks, it’s been getting worse, and the effects got quite noticeable. I didn’t like how slow and heavy my body felt from eating ice…

Home Economics 101

Ever since the chocolate cake, the oven has become one of our most-used pieces of equipment in the kitchen, second only to a tie between the rice cooker and the non-stick pan. The Realm of Textiles There was some leftover red crepe from last summer, two metres of navy lace from God knows when, and…

RUSSIA 2017 (Oct-Nov)

Photo Gallery To sum it up in three words: Buffet, Art, & Churches. Every breakfast: cold buffet table.

An Ode to My Mother’s Culinary Talent

Dinner was so good that it would be a total sin not to post a picture of it. My mom made her own version of the Japanese soup and rice that we often have on our trips to Japan. The clear soup is made using bonito flakes. You pour it over the rice, and add…

Sai Wan

  This year on Christmas Eve, my parents decided it was about time to hike out to our favourite beach at Sai Wan. When the tide is high, the water comes in an inch deep. It easily covers the fine sand, rippling and eddying languorously across your feet if you stand there for a while….
