HPinHK #3: Yoshinoya edition

With temperatures in Hong Kong taking a steep drop down to 4°c the other day (and that wasn’t the coldest!) I’ve found yet another excuse to have another hot pot for dinner! It wasn’t easy, leaving the warm comfort of my bed, but after weighing up the pros and cons, it was hot pot 1…

HPinHK #2: Fairwood edition

So I’m back with part 2 of the hopefully 4 part series – this time the Fairwood edition! I was over the moon when I recently found out that a Fairwood had opened within a short walking distance to where I’m staying in HK, and have since been twice to try out 2 different hot…

HPinHK #1: Maxim’s edition (New series!)

After thinking long and hard about how I can revive (if you can really call it that) my blog, I’ve decided to start up a new short series, ‘Hot Pot in Hong Kong’. Such a dry title, I know – but rather a punny one that would have you rolling your eyes, I thought I’d…

la vie en rose ♡ madeinl.com

I finally received the goods from donating to madeinl’s birthday support for Myungsoo’s birthday earlier this year! I had to chase her up about the package last week though, but luckily she replied within an hour, and she sorted stuff out with the post office, and had the package sent out the next day! So…

My Little Television: Kimchi Rice

백종원’s classy recipe’s have been my life for the past few months – they’re nothing fancy, but taste great (some of them questionable though /looking at you 1600+ kal sandwich…). Anyways, one of the recipe’s I’ve been meaning to try is the Kimchi Rice that was featured on ‘My Little Television’ (I can’t find the…

or are you just happy sashimi?

After sitting three mid semester exams, I couldn’t think of a better way to wind down then to finally play(?) with the box of sugary sushi goodness that I picked up from SOGO in Hong Kong a few years ago along with the Obento set. This set was actually at the top of my list…
