Rainy Blues

Damn the weather in Hong Kong! It’s raining, it’s humid, it’s polluted and people should get umbrella licenses before someone else gets a spoke in their eye. Trying to turn the negatives into positives. Nothing can remedy my gloomy mood than food! I blame my weight gain on the climate.

If only exercising cheers me up as much as eating does… 😛

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…

Smells Like Jasmine

Arrived in BKK. Drinks on the rooftop bar Vertigo, room service club sandwich, a hot shower and some zzzs. Not a bad start, but I think I’ll be a tad bit more daring tomorrow.

Hi and Bye, Deutschland!

Boyfriend LN’s brother, UN got married! That party boy has finally settled down with his beautiful new wife. The festivities were held in Bremen, Germany. No convincing necessary, tickets booked, luggage packed and off I go to the land of sausages, beer and bread.

Aside from a more than gorgeous wedding, I enjoyed an exuberant amount of food. The holiday pretty much was all about eating much, and often! The food was delectable, and really, worth the weight gain.

hugo – my new favourite summer drink

I ate probably the equivalent amount a small family would during my 10 days there. And I know I could be at the gym instead of uploading food porn, but I’m very strict with my priorities.
