I can’t believe the previous post that I wrote was already a month ago!! LOL . I did posted this passage in my Facebook page but haven’t update it in here. Sorry guys! so here you are, today I would like to introduce the ‘MUST EAT’ in Okinawa – AGU PORK!
There’s always a few MUST EAT in different places while you travel. And… you definitely will follow what other bloggers / friends advice. Thus I would like to advice you the most famous food in Okinawa -Agu pork! As mentioned from other passage said it was originally from China! (What a surprise!) I’m from Hong Kong but never have a chance to taste this in China. Just a bit background of the Agu pork, people said the cholesterol compared to normal pork was 1/4 only and high protein as well!
Happy Chinese New Year! as a start of the new post in the year of Dog, I would like to introduce this amazing earliest Cherry Blossom that I’ve seen in last month, located in Okinawa.
When someone talked about Okinawa, what immediately pop into your head would definitely be the summer of amazing beach with perfect blue sky. However aren’t there can be more than that? Today I will bring you to the other side of Okinawa in winter. After you read this post, it might change your mind to go in winter rather than in Summer!
This is the 4th post of London and I would like to share this famous IG restaurant – The Ivy Chelsea Garden to you. If you are an IG user, this place might looks familiar to you because of the famous exterior decoration of the restaurant.
The full wall panel along the exterior of the restaurant used to change with seasonal decoration. Last month – December 2017, it was full of metallic Christmas ornaments. People who passed by can’t control not to take a shot and upload immediately to social media. Of course, I also took one before I went in for breakfast! 😉
Continue to share a few nice spots in London, today I would like to share this lovely garden Royal Botanic Garden – Kew Garden. Kew Garden is the largest and most diverse collection of living plants anywhere in the world. Also it includes more than 30000 different kinds of plants and they have the world largest herbarium. Besides, the garden has 326 acres of landscape which have more than 100 world-class attractions to enjoy.
Lucky us it was a great weather on the day we visited. Unfortunately, we didn’t have much time to walk through the whole garden. (I believe it would took us a day!) We just managed to visit the key attractions of Treetop Walkway, Palm House and the garden nearby only. However, you can also take the bus tour at the entrance of the park if you feel tired. Now let me know show you the pictures of the lovely Kew garden below!
Those who don’t believe in Magic will never find it – Alice in Wonderland
and I do, so I found the magic in here – My afternoon Tea in Wonderland!
During my 2 weeks business trip in London last month, I don’t have any chance to go for afternoon tea nor going out for site seeing in the weekdays. So I planned my bucket list for weekend before I came to London.
Firstly, I need to give a big credit to my colleague / best friend who suggested me to visit this amazing place for afternoon Tea in TAJ 51 suites – located in Westminster London. As a big fans of Alice, it is a MUST to go ! Though the price per person aren’t cheap (it cost 40 pounds/ person) but I made the right choice! You will understand later when you see more photos below!
Merry Christmas everyone!! I wish you all have a warm and joyful day with your friends and family!
Knowing I have been disappeared for a couple of months!! I don’t even remember what’s my last post , ah ! it is Seoul cafe… Apologise as there are lot of things happened in the last couple of months, including my friend sad news which he was left in Aug and also my first cross exhibition with my friends during Oct. It takes time for me to recover myself and now I have settled everything and is ready to update my blog.
This is my first post of London (a new place in this blog! yeah!) . So back to this festive month which is also one of my most favourite festival of the year! I was in London around 2 weeks for my business trip! I haven’t stayed that long perviously thus I got more spare time than usual to explore exciting places in London. It was quite cold and wet as usual in the past years. However this year, there were even a couple of days we could experienced snowy days!
Myself and my colleague went to a Christmas market which is just right next to London Bridge – Christmas by the River after our dinner in Sky Pod (I will show more pictures of this amazing place later). This is my 2nd Christmas market that I have visited. To be honest it was not as excited as I imagine, but it still worth to go as there were more than 50 food/gift counters. I guess one of the reason why I felt not that exciting is because the density of the counters weren’t that close. It was a bit scattered so somehow it can’t create that festive atmosphere to me. If you asked me what is the most recommend / appreciate thing in this Christmas market? I would definitely say the little pavilion with the lights on the roof.
I have been too busy after my recent trip from Seoul. Haven’t update for a while and hopefully I can write 2 more interesting spot of Seoul in the upcoming week! Throw back to my last trip with my mum in Seoul, we have visited lots of interesting places. This is my first time bringing my mum with me apart from the tour. It was a precious moment to me since I grow up as I don’t really have a chance to go with her after graduated. Anyways, I would love to introduce this new interesting make up laboratory in Seoul – 11 Village Factory.
If you are familiar in Seoul, you might know they have lots of cool make up products and 11 Village Factory no doubt is one of the spectacular make up/ skin care store that I have ever seen.
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)
Continue from my previous post of the Day Sakura, this post I don’t have much to write but to show you the night of blooming Sakura in Kawazu. As mentioned in the previous post, this was my first time visit in Kawazu and also seeing sakura in real life. Actually I visited the night sakura before the day time but I think would be better to show the Day one first as it give you a big difference from the night view. So here you go!
There aren’t many people (actually a few at the back), but since I arrived a bit late. Checked-in from Imaiso Hotel and just rush to the Kawazu station immediately after my dinner. As Night Sakura only last until 9:00 p.m! (you probably have to check out their schedule from official site) They will turn off the light so it’s impossible to take any photos. Lucky me I arrived at 8:30 p.m and I got exactly half an hour to record the beauty of night sakura.
I’m sorry I haven’t write any post since Mar due to my busy days in the past 2 weeks in L.A ! Of course I will share my L.A post later once I catch up all the post from my FEB trip in Japan and Bangkok! ahh.. it seems to take me forever!
Anyways let’s continue from my previous post of Imaiso Hot spring hotel. As mentioned this year, the cherry blossom blooming was a bit early, when I was there it was around 18th of FEB but base on last year, it’s a month earlier! Lucky me during my business trip, I can arrive 2 days in advance to Kawazu. Just a bit background of this place. it is located about 2 hrs 40 mins from Tokyo, each year of the sakura (cherry blossom) blooming period, many people come to visit from all over Japan. as it takes only around 3 hrs from city to a countryside to enjoy such a brilliant view. If you were the first time to Tokyo, highly suggest to take some time from Tokyo to here during this period and stay for a night. There’s not only cherry blossom but also famous onsen, some great sight seeing spot as well!
I have added this link below from the official site of Kawazu. The seven waterfalls of Kawazu is the most famous!
So the next morning after my delicious breakfast in Imaiso Hot Spring Hotel, I decided to go to Kawazu river for some nice shot of Cherry blossom in Kwazu river.Since there is free shuttle from hotel, it took me directly to Kawazu station within 10 mins! How convenient this was! Once arrived, there was a guy wearing the pink Japanese outfit guiding people to Kawazu river. Believe or not, it was my first time seeing Sakura in real! I can’t tell how excited this was!
I didn’t plan where I should go but only walk along the Kawazu river as I knew the two sides are full of blooming Sakura! Once I crossed the road, not only sakura but also little yellow flowers along the street! I really love the combination of the pink and yellow! It formed a pretty live painting!
