I often get asked for Korean BBQ restaurant recommendations in Seoul but have none to give because this is something that I don’t normally eat when I am in Seoul. If I have grilled meat cravings, I would usually go
Cupcakes with floral buttercream icing that are too pretty to eat. The 3D flowers are so intricate and beautifully composed, showing so much detail. A work of art indeed. My photo does not do it any justice!
On my way to Samcheong-dong to hunt for clothes (work dresses, casual tops, kimono cardigans, shoes, costume jewelry) one morning, I walked past Cafe Mamas, a popular cafe near the Cheongyecheon stream. I have gone past this cafe many times

Besides pancakes, the other two things that I really wanted to eat in Tokyo were fruit sandwiches and a fruit parfait. Oooohh, I love sandwiches made with soft white Japanese bread and filled with fresh fruit and whipped cream. I

We came to this coffee shop at 7 Crane Road for roti prata last Sunday. Increasingly, it is getting harder to find these traditional coffee-shops in Singapore. You still see them around, but the numbers are dwindling. Many have closed
