This coincides with the Chong Yeung Festival on […]

I love the name of the restaurant and it’s my friends’ favourite spot for a quick Indian food fix.  We (over) ordered the usual: butter chicken, garlic naan, roti prata, lamb briyani, tandoori chicken and a palak paneer. It’s a simple hole in the wall in Causeway Bay and you climb up some greasy stairs […]

I bought a new 50mm lens for my Canon D1200, also known as the “nifty 50” and portrait lens. I hesitated getting one because I wanted to first get to know my basic kit lens and camera, but I gave in to temptation. The effects are remarkably different. Can you spot the bee? I used […]

I tagged along on Mr Chef’s work trip to Bangkok recently and we got ourselves a table at Sühring, the restaurant by German twin chefs that everyone’s been raving about – and one of Asia Top 50’s best restaurants. My experience with Germany and gastronomy hasn’t been the best, not even at a Michelin-starred restaurant […]

Slightly late on this one, had friends visiting and working on a few projects lately, including sewing, which takes up alot of my mindful meditation time in full focus. Some days, I also struggle to find something to photography everyday, which forces me to look deeper and harder to find beauty in everything and every day […]

A couple of friends were reading Gut and recommended it. It starts off accessible and fun – an easy to read educational book on our insides, but I have to admit I didn’t finish it because it got annoying with the constant need to insert (not funny) jokes to lighten certain issues and after a […]

A different shot of these Masala tea. The tea however is more a tea latte than a masala chai. I never noticed the little hoops for the melons to sit on in case they roll off the rack. I haven’t figured out how to take sky shots where it doesn’t compromise the colours of the […]
