“Happy Mid-Autumn Festival 2010 – Have you eaten any mooncake yet?”
Chinese Mid-Autumn Festival is one of the important festivals for Chinese. In Singapore, the main festive food to celebrate Mid-Autumn is the mooncake and you could probably see stores selling varieties of mooncake way before the actual day.
“Two new Parchment Pastas, the true decadence of uniqueness and tenderness for your tastebuds @ Pizza Hut.”
One of my favourite foods is pasta and that’s why I cook pasta pretty often. I enjoyed eating pasta, for indulging in the great eating pleasure out of its simplicity. It’s not limited to just my own pasta cooking, but I loved having great pasta when dine out, too.
“My first hot pot dining experience with Peir 88 of Tau Heung branch restaraunts in Hong Kong. Nice, but it could be better, if I knew….. Read this now and pick up some tips ad tricks on how to enjoy your hotpot meal to the fullest!”
Eating hotpot (or called it steamboat) in Hong Kong was commonly seen and well liked by the people, especially during cold weather. They called it 打邊爐 (in Cantonese: Da Bin Lou) in Hong Kong.
“All-time packed authentic road side stall which you shouldn’t miss, for their signature fragrant crisped bun and refreshing tomato noodle soup!”
There were so many good eating places in the area of Sheung Wan and Central (上環/ 中環), including the very famous dim sum place, Lian Xiang Lou (莲香樓). But nope, it was not about dim sum, this post featured the value-for-money local breakfast place, 勝香園/ 胜香园 (Cantonese as: Sing Heong Yun), a Hong Kong Dai Pai Dong 大排檔 (roadside stall).
“Eat what the locals eat.”
We booked our hotel accommodation in Tin Hau area (next to Causeway Bay) where plenty of yummy street food were found. Right after checking in, we were eager to find some food to fill our famished stomachs. However, we did not hang around Tin Hau area for street food. I thought the popular noodle soup would be just right for us, for its convenient location in Sheung Wan, where I needed also to shop for my soy sauce (from Kowloon Soy Co.), and some nice and cheap boots from a streetside stall there. Without further delay, we set off quickly, by MTR.
“Enjoy luxury afternoon tea in this elegant rendezvous at The Peninsula Hotel, HK (香港半島酒店)”
Apparently, this was a trend. Really. Seemingly dedicating only to the rich and formal, countless numbers of tourists were spotted, too.
Yes, this place. An elegant afternoon tea rendezvous for the rich “tai tai” (wealthy Mrs.), often featured in the Hong Kong TVB shows. In Hong Kong, they called it, 嘆下午茶 (taan haa mm cha). Haha.. It made me curious to find out more.
“A good Thai restaurant that comes with condoms?!”
Just visited Bangkok (again), for a short 3 days 2 nights trip. Yes, due to time constrain, we had to pack all itineraries full in the 3 days. Shop, eat, eat, shop… :) I was sure Bangkok is no stranger to most Singaporean shoppers and foodies, you probably knew the city inside out. :)
