When someone ask what’s the best in Tokyo? I would definitely say they have various cosmetic skincare products, great food and of course their famous pancakes! Unlike the western pancakes – a thin layer with maple syrup. I would like to introduce this lovely cafe offers pancakes that is super-fluffy and melt in your month instantly in Jiyugaoka 自由が丘- Tokyo.
A little background of Jiyugaoka before show you the inside of Flipper’s. Jiyugaoka is one of my favourite place in Tokyo. Unlike the cities, Jiyugaoka is a place where can ignored by the bustles and city crowds. There are lots of various cafes, restaurants and little shops in alleys. I love to spend my afternoon here almost 10 years ago with my boyfriend (my husband now!) while he was studying in Tokyo. There are lots of memories when I stepped here again after 10 years during my business trip! I love the ambience here, people walk slowly, relax and enjoy their time just sitting at the bench. It is a great place to chill with friends in the afternoon. Anyways, let me introduce this place in my next post and sure you will love it too! Especially it’s not far from Tokyo! (just 15 mins from Shibuya station)
Following my Taiwan trip last year, would like to recommend another great spot which offers 24 hours various selective bagels. I went there because it is just located at the back of my hotel. Situated in Zhongxiao district, a very convenient place where there are shopping malls, restaurants around. It opens 24 hours daily, if you have a late arrival would be great to enjoy an earlier breakfast in N.Y Bagel Cafe. It is a western style bagel cafe with big portions and refill service for coffee. Besides free Wifi is also available.
As a coffee lover, I have never imagine I could experiment coffee in a Greenhouse cafe. Continued my last post of my Taipei business trip, I went to a uniqueness cafe located in Da’an District. I have marked this placed in advance because of it’s spectacular look & feel. A little background before getting into the cafe. It originally was a cafe moved from Beijing since 2008, they aimed not only to open a regular cafe which you have seen in everywhere but include more lifestyle products from local designers. Thus you can find lots of different lifestyle products such as notebooks, totes, water bottles, ceramic art piece etc.
but those who do will find great joy and happiness for eternity.
Due to my last business trip, I visited Tainan last week. As usual, I would not miss any opportunity to look for some interesting spot while I was away from home. Narrow Door Cafe is one of the Cafe where I marked on my must go list.
The name of the Cafe is already interesting enough for me to visit them. If you have ever been to Taiwan, you might find Tainan is quite different from Taipei. There aren’t any tall buildings but small stores and alley. If I need to use only a word to describe Tainan, Old city would suits the best. A little background of the Narrow Door cafe, it was originally owned by a doctor during the Japanese occupation era, then it has been taken over by the owner of Narrow door cafe in 1999. Thus the cafe looks so rustic and have retain what it had since constructed.
As a coffee lover like me, I love wander around and look for lovely coffee shop when I arrived in a new city where I have never been.
Apart from my previous post of cafe Ristro8to, here is another place where you can spend your afternoon with such a simple yet stylish coffee shop. They severed home made pasta and is made to order. So if you are rushing to another new spot then I would not recommend you to come as they won’t serve really fast but believe slow food would results the best quality to their customers. So be patient and wait for what they serve. It sure won’t disappoint you.
I have planned to visit several selected special cafe and that’s one of the Cafe in my bucket list – Into the WOODS. If you are a fans of fairy tales, fantasy lovers or you’re looking for some Unique Cafe. This is one of the MUST GO cafe.
The interior of the cafe was full of fantasy wall paintings. Not only the wall but also extended to the ceiling. The menu and even the door to washroom was well designed in order to match the theme. How lovely this place was! It’s almost like you jumped into a Story book! The most important is the location is very convenient, it is located right in the old city of Chiangmai.
There are cakes you can order from their cake counter. You can even found the lovely Rabbit showing the free WIFI and fairy tale books beside which you can buy.
When I started my blog, I was aim to share some amazing place or restaurant etc. from places that I visited out of my country. I wasn’t aware that I am also living in a beautiful place – HONG KONG. A little city with over 7 million people. (believe the no. shall be more than that!)
HONG KONG is a super busy place and things goes really fast. No one would have time to stop by and explore the beautiful things surrounds them. You can’t change the world but your mind could. It is such a pity to miss the beautiful things just next to you. I went to STAR STREET – Wan Chai alone with my camera on Saturday. I will post more photos and information about STAR STREET later. This is one of the hidden place in Hong Kong which I would like introduce and share to people from other countries. You might not find this place in your travel book or tourist guide. But this is a great place to experience the silent side of HONG KONG.
First I went to Elephant ground for lunch and took a few pictures of the restaurant from star street. Not many of the stores has opened, so I went to the nearest gallery called ODD ONE OUT, they are having an exhibition until 31st JULY.
