[Kuala Lumpur] Alexis Cafe

Rocking the ghetto streets of Bangsar is this classy, off-the-beaten-track bistro cafe that has maintained its name with a fine selection of cakes and a sleek price to match. Not a conceptually-strong bistro, but Alexis banks its traffic on excellent word-of-mouth and high quality desserts.    Having heard a great deal about their Tiramisu, theContinue reading “[Kuala Lumpur] Alexis Cafe”

[SYDNEY] BOURKE STREET BAKERY

Tarts and tea at the Bourke Street Bakery on a weekday afternoon. Surry Hills is home to a flourish of yuppie bars and cafes where misfits are the new chic. People no longer go to cafes seeking lattes. Instead, we pay more physical attention to the space we spend time in. Naturally, we want to surround ourselves in a creative, culturally-inspiring, aestheticallyContinue reading “[SYDNEY] BOURKE STREET BAKERY”

[SYDNEY] ADRIANO ZUMBO’S OTHERWORLDLY DELIGHTS

So I caved in to macarons. Or zumbarons to be more accurate. But how could you not, after stepping into Adriano Zumbo’s at The Star, Sydney, only to be consumed by sight of an array of beautiful sugary goodness and crazy exotic macaron flavours? I’ll allow you to feast your eyes on foodporn ahead. AdrianoContinue reading “[SYDNEY] ADRIANO ZUMBO’S OTHERWORLDLY DELIGHTS”

Hello Kitty Cafe | 헬로키티카페 홍대점

Two years ago I was wildly excited to come into Hello Kitty Cafe in Hongdae. Two years later, I’m mildly amused by how ugly their kitty-shaped waffles have become. The insanely pink stand-alone building is still a popular tourist attraction (cue an aggressive horde of multi-lingual Kitty fanatics), and always will remain a novelty thisContinue reading “Hello Kitty Cafe | 헬로키티카페 홍대점”

Food for Not-Skinny People

Found myself a new love: Kahlua Cocoa Coffee Cheesecake! Whenever I find myself in the States, cheesecake factory is the ultimate go-to for comfort food. We also shared the Fresh Strawberry Cheesecake and the classic Red Velvet. Satisfaction is eating good food in the company of people you’re happy to share a meal with. WhatContinue reading “Food for Not-Skinny People”

The Living Room, Copenhagen

Cafè culture in Copenhagen is amaaaazing! Touched down in the morning at 6am, slept for 3hrs, until the silence of the hotel room made me so darn restless. So, I embarked on the list of coffee-places I wanted to visit! First stop: The Living Room @ Larsbjørnstræde. The street is lined with indie cafès, vintageContinue reading “The Living Room, Copenhagen”

Keep Calm and Eat Cakes

The best perk me up: iced caffè and cakes for your soul. With friends like mine, everyday is cake day. Green Tea Mousse, Mille Crêpes, Strawberry Shortcake Signature Mille Crêpes! Marina Square Shopping Mall 6 Raffles Boulevard #02-103 Singapore 039594

London Lovin’: Patisserie Valerie

Tucked away in the streets of Notthing Hill is a Patisserie Valerie – great wifi connectivity, comfy sofas, and mad awesome latte with cake! As it is now late-summer, London is all overcast skies and occasional light drizzles, which is perfect for a hot cuppa. Nothing makes me gladder than to see a spacious cafèContinue reading “London Lovin’: Patisserie Valerie”

o86. pretty filtered pictures

Times like this…I wish we were back in Seoul where steaming hot street-food are just ten steps away from the hotel entrance. Reminiscent of the first night we gobbled down fishcake in the freezing cold…. Had cake for breakfast and supper (cheesecake + chocolate truffle) thanks to my big brother. Photo filters are deceivingly beautifying.Continue reading “o86. pretty filtered pictures”

o85. daddy’s birthday

Celebrated Daddy’s birthday in advance. Everyone’s schedules are so tight, we only get this one Sunday evening. Due to immigration issues when he came over from Taiwan, dad has 2 birthdays. How cool!!             Overdosed on sugar and carbohydrates. Major food coma. Wish you didn’t have to grow old, dad. StayContinue reading “o85. daddy’s birthday”
