The first thing that greeted me when I stepped in the cafe was the sweet aroma of coffee; a friendly smile awaited as I approached the counter. After ordering, I sat down and enjoyed the view of a neighborhood where I used to live.
I spent only an hour enjoying my cup of piccolo latte since I had to rush back to work, but it was a perfect hour spent on a Tuesday.

You can drinking coffee anywhere, but when you have a cuppa inside a pre-war building, it adds more flavour to the experience. A barista who takes the effort to ask if the coffee tastes alright is another bonus.

One of the highlight of our trip was road trip to Toronto. We stop by the beautiful small town of Kingston halfway.
I luv taking photos of people. I believe that they are the story and the city are like a book. Here is a guy a enjoying his happy grass with a little fear in me I ask if I can take his photo.

One of my love of this city is the mixture of old and new architect that is right next to each other. It give the city so much character.
Iconic CN Tower. It is a magnificent architect which stand out among all the building in the city
Another favourite place of mine on this trip is Wakefield. It was a perfect way of spending half day with beautiful scenery of the lake, the slow walk and all this little shop and cafe available. This is the view of the lake with the famous Wakefield Covered Bridge.
The guy sitting in the corner is what caught my eye… living a simple life…

Eating a whole Peking duck at a restaurant often feels very ceremonious. A chef will carve the freshly roasted duck next to your table, steam rising as the skin is sliced off. The process feels grand and purposeful.
Enjoying the dish is a graceful affair. Thin slices of skin and meat are dipped into sauce (each restaurant boasts its own specialty sauce) and then arranged on a sheet of pancake together with shreds of scallions and cucumber. Next, roll and fold the pancake into a small little bolster. When you bite into the ensemble, sweet bean sauce leaks into your mouth, paving the way for the rest of the fillings.
Dadong, a famous Peking duck chain, is reinventing the way to enjoy the imperial delicacy. Instead of a formal sit-down meal, it is providing an alternative: grabbing the treat to-go.

Isn’t this purple cauliflower pretty? Such a romantic and whimsical variant of the ordinary white ones, don’t you think?
After a weekend of an equal portion of work and recreation – I watched Star Wars: The Force Awakens finally! – Monday rolled in lazily. I panicked a little every time I looked at my work schedule this week, but mostly, it is an interview with a prominent local actor, who has an authoritative assistant, that is making me nervous.

I have cooked this a millionth time this winter. It is fast, easy and very satisfying. A little risotto-ish, yet not too complicated.
I’ve made this with mushrooms, or mushrooms and peas, or prawns and asparagus… Instead of cooking it with broth, I just use hot water and season the rice with a pinch of salt. Just before scooping the mixture into a bowl, I give it a generous glug of white wine. 🙂

With all the excitement around the New Year quieted down, I woke up on Sunday and craved for warm, oozing cheese. So in my fleece jacket and lounge pants, I retrieved puff pastry and brie from the fridge, and turned on the oven.
I stamped out circles on the pastry sheet with an upside down ramekin, broke the cylinder of brie with my hands, drizzled honey over the cheese and sprinkled dried rosemary casually over the ensemble.
Twenty minutes later I bit into the puffed-up pastries, a wave of contentment washing over me. Ahh, the magic of cheese.
