Tao-Tao-Restaurant-The-Best-and-Cheapest-Seafood-In-Sai-Kung-Hong-Kong
One of the best places I've eaten at in Hong Kong this year has got to be at Tao Tao in Sai Kung at Pak Sha Wan pier. I first went in April earlier this year and then again in October, both times were as good as each other and best of all, on the latest visit I took my parents and my dad gave his stamp of approval.

Wallaroo Hand Bag Snacks

November 26, 2018

I rarely leave the house without some sort of snack in my bag, you know... just in case! And that's with or without Isaac in tow. I like to mix it up, healthy snacks as well as pure sugary treats, it's all about balance.

Top Hong Kong Restaurants Round Up 2018

November 13, 2018

We took off to Bali for a week in mid October for a dear friend's wedding and fully expected to return home in time for Halloween, but literally hours before our flight home, I decided on a spontaneous trip to Hong Kong and took Isaac with me! G sadly didn't have any more annual leave to join us but he was happy for us to enjoy a bonus two weeks in Hong Kong to see family and friends.

Before I share a post on the amazing time we had in Bali, I wanted to do food round up of Hong Kong for friends who are there right now. You guys all know that Hong Kong means lots of great food for us and it was no exception on this trip. I've already covered a lot of my favourite eats in the Tsim Sha Tsui area, written about delicious and most importantly baby-friendly restaurants, and a recent desserts roundup.

For those who have the time to venture further out of the main areas of Hong Kong, I fully recommend a trip to Tai Po Market for fantastic local eats that is not only cheap, but also tastes incredible. If you do make a trip to Tai Po, do not miss out on the tofu fa dessert in the main square just outside of the market.

Another area that is a little far out from the main city area is Tuen Mun. We stayed in the Gold Coast Hotel for one night as a mini break and the Singaporean restaurant and Prime Rib restaurant were both outstanding. Definitely worth the journey, and even better if you can make a break out of it.

For some really old fashioned Hong Kong eats, Tai Wing Wah and Lung Wah Hotel are well worth it for a nostalgic dive into authentic Cantonese food. You can find my full list of Hong Kong eats here.

GARDEN - BEFORE & AFTER

October 18, 2018

GARDEN-BEFORE-AND-AFTER
The garden, the last part of our home renovations, went through some serious transformation earlier this year and we finally have an outdoor space that we absolutely cherish. We've had an amazing Summer in the garden from BBQs to tuff-tray messy play, to hanging out in the garden studio.

Chinese Char Siu Chicken | Halogen Oven Recipe

October 12, 2018

Chinese-char-siu-chicken
Over the Summer, I had many opportunities to marinade meats for the BBQ and in particular, one that went down really well was this char siu style chicken, after a self-made-recipe tip off from my good friend Kelly. I used the marinade for chicken wings and drumsticks, and both came out utterly delicious and addictive.

Toy Rotation | Hape Checkout Register/Strictly Briks/Toddle Bike

Toy rotation is so important to keep things fresh and interesting without the need to keep buying new toys - a brilliant handy tip passed onto me from my friend Mandy, who always has so much great advice on all things baby/toddler related.

Mee Market | Soho London

October 02, 2018

mee-market-soho-london
Deli style cafes and markets are nothing new but a Korean one most certainly is. Mee Market is an all day Korean cafe with a deli counter/market shop/homeware store in the midst of Soho. I really like the concept of being able to pick up hot, freshly made food to go or eat in, and well as doing some authentic Korean grocery shopping. The set up reminds me of Japan Centre, which I love hanging out in. Mee Market is a part of On The Bab and Koba, both Korean restaurants I think highly of and would recommend in a heartbeat. 

Watches Gift Guide

September 25, 2018


One present that never gets old to receive or to gift has got to be a watch.

As a teen, I loved spending my Summer holidays in Hong Kong wandering around the bustling markets. I picked up so many cutesy cartoon adorned watches and stop-watches on these market runs; Hello Kitty being firm a favourite and would always buy extra to give to friends as a souvenir. Once I went off to college and later on uni, I bought my first Fossil watch and also started to buy watches for friends and family birthday presents.

Japanese Style Pepperonchino Pasta

It has been a while since I posted a recipe and I feel terrible for it. One of the main reasons for starting this blog was to share lots of recipes, so I will be re-focusing on this a lot more for the rest of the year and beyond - stay with me!

How To Get Into Child Modelling (UK)

September 11, 2018

How-To-Get-Into-Child-Modelling-UK-Isaac-Lam
After I shared photos of Isaac modelling for Next a few weeks back, I had lots of messages and general curiosity asking me how I got him into it. I had always liked the idea of seeing him on print for brands on the high street and luckily for me, I had a couple of friends who already had their babies doing some modelling and were generous enough to take me through the steps. 

Isaac had quite bad baby eczema when he was born which didn't disappear until around 4 months, so prior to that, modelling would have been out of the question. 

Viet Food | Chinatown London

September 04, 2018

VIET-FOOD-LONDON-CHINATOWN
Viet Food was one of those unassuming restaurants in Chinatown that looked somewhat of a tourist trap and one that I had walked past many times without ever having the urge to venture into. That was until I was craving Vietnamese one day and looked up for one near to Chinatown where I'd be near to for the day. It turned out to be one of the tastiest Vietnamese restaurants I'd ever been to, one which I now rate very highly and have since been to a couple of times.
