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…

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…

Hong Kong (Food) Favourites ♡

So as I was putting together a list of my Hong Kong favourites following my trip just passed, I couldn’t help but notice that other than a few beauty related things, a majority of the things that I loved were all food related. So pushing back the beauty favourites for another day (if I ever…

$4+ churros? no more!

Churros have always been a love of mine, but I’ve never been able to justify the ridiculous prices you have to pay at san churro/max brenner or movie world. Under the impression that they were really hard to make I even made these, but to my surprise, I was able to whip these up with…

mini corn dog muffins

here’s one of the recipes I mentioned yesterday – taken and adapted from iowagirleats! (i halved the amount, reduced sugar + butter, and used corn flour instead of cornmeal)  they tasted alright, probably won’t be needing another batch anytime soon though – i made 24, and even when shared between 3 people there’s still around 8 left…

coconut, milo and white chocolate filling

yellow and purple were our colours of choice when the three of us got together yesterday to try to perfect the art of macaron making. we made one batch, and split the mixture in half, one for each colour. but for some reason the ‘purple’ ones (technically blue and nearing ‘stone’ coloured, by the end…

it’s (almost) c-c-christmas! ^ㅂ^

What do you get when you mix aeroplane jelly + 250mL hot water + 1 tbsp gelatine + 1 tsp gelatin + 1 tbsp sugar + 100mL cold water? Christmas tree jellies, ofc! These were for our Christmas party that we had yesterday! Added some coconut on the trees as ‘snow’, and they just so happened to highlight the tree…

Sugar Rush

I think I’m going to pass on sugar for the next month or so… The first fix was on Thursday when I was handed 11 packets of free haribo’s on the way down to the bus stop… Mind you in hindsight 11 packets probably wasn’t a lot, seeing as they’re all gone now aha… And…

1004 Day

천사 Day! A day of many many birthdays, one of which is my friends, and to celebrate we went to have brunch at ‘Comfort At My Table’. There aren’t many cafes in the area around where I live, this particular cafe took a good 30 minutes, with an extra 15 minutes-ish to find a park…
