Continuation of my favourite pics from Japan.  Sigh.. seeing the photos make me want to go Japan again! (Captions are below the photos) Hakodate & Hakone Goryokaku Star Forte at Hakodate. I really love the autumn leaves! Check out the generous serving of ikura!! Hakodate city at sunset. I just thought this was really smart […]

This post has been long in the making.  I know I’ve said a few times that I will eventually post my Japan photos… but never got down to it.  Problem is that I took loads and loads of photos and after uploading them to FB, it just became too much effort to post the photos […]

More food photos!!   I hardly hardly eat street hawker food in HK… the one and only time was when I shared this erm… flour egg balls thingy with Azure last year.  After trying the curry fish balls, however, I’m totally in love with it!  Yummy!  I prefer those that just come with the “curry […]

The trip was extremely fun despite the terrible inconvenience and distress caused by Jetstar (they kept sending me SMSes & e-mails saying my flight itinerary changed, despite me logging into their system to confirm the amendment to my return flight 3 times.  Then on the night before my  flight to HK, I got an erroneous […]

Jiufen’s an old mining town with lots of shops selling local specialties & tea houses.     To get to Jiufen, we took the MRT to Taipei Main Station, then changed to an express train to Ruifang.     Here’s a pic of the train station at Ruifang.   You can get lots of snacks […]

Booze Queen, AK and I didn’t join the day tour organised by Chan Brothers.  Instead, we visited Danshui and Jiufen on our own.  Danshui was quite a nice place to relax and pig out.  The smell of salt was so strong!  I don’t think the water would’ve been 淡 at all! Smelly Toufu can be […]

Kiki’s Restaurant – serves Sichuan dishes.  Opened by Matilda Tao & some other celebrities.   Kangkong with fermented beancurd.  Reaaaaallly good.   Mala beef – this is a must try!  The medium spicy mala soup leaves a tingly feeling on the tongue.  The beef was tender & absorbed the flavour of the mala.  Soooooooooooooooooo good!
