16th Anniversary

Happy National Day!!

The first week of October (better known as golden week) is the time when all the wealthy mainlanders flood into Hong Kong. They wait to get into Hermes, Chanel and Louis Vuitton, buy everything in the store and piss and shit on the streets (although, not always in that particular order). The only difference this year is that there’s no reason to push and shove with them on Nathan road. Rather silly, but the national fireworks are cancelled due to a ferry collision last year. The logic behind that is that because if it’s happened once, it will again the following year despite being more safety prepared and cautious. Chinese people worry about the wrong things.

Reminiscing last year’s beautifully lit skyline. Maybe the last of the October 1st fireworks.

Delicious dinner made by chef LN. Salmon fillet with sautéed garlic spinach, honey glazed carrots and spicy buttered mushrooms.

Perfectly crisp crust with tender juicy meat. I’m lucky to have a boyfriend who is such an amazing home cook!

Happy birthday to my favorite friend of my boyfriend’s! Scrumptious dinner at Blue Butcher with their colleagues and friends.

And of course, drinks and the typical birthday beverage – flaming Lamborghini – for the birthday boy.

Worst Wolverine

A true disappointment. To be fair, I probably played it up too much in my head in anticipation for it coming out. But The Wolverine is still unarguably the worst (xmen) movie ever. I thought I had paid to watch a movie about mutants, but instead I got a crossover with a soppy Japanese drama and mission impossible type action. Such a huge let down! Sitting between 2 xmen fans and listening to them sigh and fidget throughout the snooze fest also didn’t help.
Who else thought it was total crap?

Dinner and Movie

He does love me! Taking me out to dinner with oysters and watching a 3D animation? He’s the real deal 🙂

Good Grub

Ending the trip with something closer to home… Well, I say that I mean something that won’t burn my stomach. I’ve been having too much hot stuff lately and I need some down to earth comfort food. The Bangkok Burger offers just what I need.

Nahm, Bangkok’s Best

So lucky to be able to visit Nahm, Bangkok’s best restaurant. Rated 3rd in the top 50 restaurants in Asia. Everything we tried was refreshing, tangy, and utterly fantastic.

The menu was very innovative and the dishes are really like none other I’ve tasted before. A truly culinary delight! I wish I could try everything they had to offer! So stuffed right now! Nothing better than coming back from a satisfying meal to a welcoming bed. Good night!

Nice to Meet You, Steve

Trip Advisor recommended a homey little restaurant by the river and I just thought, if TA says it’s good, it can’t be bad. I was so impressed! Aromatic and flavorful home-cooked-style dishes made from ingredients that you could taste were fresh. A scrumptious dinner that would leave you full to your neck for only $125HKD per person. Steve Cafe and Cuisine is a definite place to go if you are in or going to Bangkok.

Fish Feeding

Most non-relaxing spa experience ever. Put your feet in a tank with tiny deadskin-eating fishies? Great if you’re feeling down and need a good tickle. The torture to get me to disclose any information…
