Chinese Crispy Noodles with Shredded Pork

February 12, 2019

I've had this blog post sitting in my drafts since 2013 (yes, 2013 dammit!) so you may notice the difference in worktop counter and photography style compared to my usual recipe posts, haha! I still want to share it though as this is a really good recipe and one that I make at home quite regularly. 

Bali Day 2 - Garuda Wisnu Kencana Cultural Park + Belmond Seafood

February 07, 2019

We've booked a half day trip to see a cultural park nearish to our hotel. This was to satisfy me more than the others in our group as I wanted to feel like we actually got to see some of the culture in Bali, and not just spend the entire holiday hanging out in our hotel and at the beach. 

Get Organised for Moving Houses

Get Organised for Moving Houses
Whilst I'm not moving houses anytime soon, I have done it so many times in my life and the best thing you can do to minimise stress is to get organised with a timeline of tasks, as soon as you know you're going to be moving. I recently helped a friend out with said tedious task and as she was planning on moving countries, the first thing we did was to reduce and get rid of her belongings as much as possible. This absolutely works even if you are just moving down the road, offloading and moving 'light' is essential.

Bali Day 1 - Fox Harris Hotel + Kayumanis Restaurant

Bali-Fox-Harris-Hotel-and-Kayumanis-Restaurant
Bali really is one of those places I've always wanted to go to for the longest of times and thanks to one of my best friends who decided to get married there in October last year, it was the perfect excuse to tick it off my bucket list. And not only did we get to enjoy 6 beautiful days in Bali, we also got to experience our first beach wedding which was just incredible.

Japanese Soufflé Pancake Recipe

Japanese-Soufflé-Pancake-Recipe
A very belated happy new year guys! I've definitely been MIA on the blog, December came round so quickly and the WHOLE month became Christmas month with baking, parties and so many outings. I hope you all had a fabulous festive break and ready for 2019 - I totally am! This year, my blog will be more focused on sharing recipes, great places to eat out in London and travel blogs. I'll be cutting back on home + lifestyle posts since I realised my real passion is food and I really should dedicate more time to it.  

Tao Tao Restaurant | The Best + Cheapest Seafood In Sai Kung, Hong Kong

December 03, 2018

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.
