I have finally tried all the four chiffon cake recipes given in Keiko Ishida’s book – vanilla, black sesame, matcha and kinako (soybean). We (okay, more like TBH) really overdosed on chiffon cakes the last couple of weeks. Of them, I
For a long while, I have been meaning to take a photo of the one-storey house along Thomson Ridge where I grew up in. I had lived there with my maternal grandparents from the time I was brought home from
かんこくのバナナミルクは だいすきです。毎日 このバナナミルクを のんでいます。 After a long seach, I have finally found the Bingrae Banana Milk in Shine Supermarket at Burlington Square. I lugged a box of 24 cartons back home. I have been craving for this milk like junkies craving for a drug

Dinner at Cocotte. Finally got a table after several attempts to get one in the past weeks. Kick-started dinner with some appetizers — which were not too bad but nothing to shout about — and a tiny glass of wine.
