I don’t think I’ve ever posted a revisit to any restaurant or cafe, even if I do go there a lot. I just feel like there’s generally not much more I can offer in terms of new information or photos to my readers, that is, unless if there’s a significant change to what we had [...]
Most Asian restaurants I’ve been dining at recently have been fast food or close to it. There is one exception, and that’s U-Village in St Kilda. When I was given the chance to dine there as their guest, I was a little unsure as to what to expect, but I was very pleasantly surprised.
To my dear readers, did you all have a good Valentine’s Day? I did in a way. Although there was no romantic dinner, lavish presents or even being relaxing at all, I did spend it with my beloved (not that I have a choice) and kept myself busy in the shop. I even set up [...]
The Japanese culture heavily embraces Buddhism and thus Buddhist teachings. One of the concepts that was derived from its teachings is the acceptance of all things ‘imperfect, impertinent and incomplete’, also known as ‘wabi sabi‘ in Japanese.

The first time I ever ‘won’ anything was back in year 9. It was one of those unpopular gold coin donation charity events at school where we had a chance to guess the number of Easter eggs in a jar in order to win prizes. I was peer pressured into the donation and as a [...]

I love Spring. [...]

Yuye and I faced yet another day of undecidedness this week. Specifically, we weren’t sure where we could go for lunch before I started my first styling class at RMIT. As we were heading into inner city, the choices exponentially increased. Then we remembered. Wasn’t there a place we wanted to dine at last time [...]
I’ve been finding myself at the busy Chapel St junction a lot recently. With David’s just off Chapel and Borsch Vodka & Tears around the corner, our next dining spot was at Lucky Coq which is right on the corner of the intersection for some seriously cheap pizzas and beers.
Since I’m from Shanghai, “how does Shanghainese food differ from other Chinese cuisine?” has been a question that many people have asked me before.
