Victoria Harbour Restaurant

One of the must visit restos in Hong Kong. It’s not exactly rated much in Open Rice maybe because it’s only popular among the locals. But this is exactly what we want, to live and to play like the locals. How much more can you experience Hong Kong, right?
They have real food, I mean it’s worth your money. And you don’t get what you pay for, you get more. Let me find that term the next time I post another food review. :P

Hong Kong’s Nightlife

Finally get to experience the nightlife in Hong Kong after so long. We didn’t exactly go to the clubbing scenes that are for the young ones, but just in a nice cozy bar where you see people in their late 20’s to early 40’s hang out.
Quinary, located in Central just near the famous Lan Kwai Fong street. The bartenders here actually have their own recipes. There are drinks that only a particular bartender can make.

A Trip to HK’s Bo Innovation

This has been raved about in the past couple of years. Bo Innovation is a Chinese fusion 3-star Michelin restaurant. They say it’s overrated but we just had to try it ourselves.

First off, a welcome snack. Onion waffles, it’s said to be Hong Kong’s famous street food.

A Tale about Homebrewing

Finally get to use the word “Tale” as per my blog title!
Why beer? It’s sort of connected to my next travel diary, Lucerne, which is my favorite city in the world by far. Mainly because of one thing: their beer, Eichhof to be exact. I’ve been daydreaming about this beer ever since I left the place. It’s nowhere to be found but there, not even in some other cities in Switzerland. You have no idea how desperate I was looking for other beers that could top this. But no such thing exists. And because of this, I really got into beers.

My cousin and I even brewed our own beer which was crazy and made us really badass. Ehem.. But seriously. We had to carry a 5-gallon bucket to the counter top and after that move it to the fridge (it gave me a good arm workout). We’re basically all over the place, but for the record, the beer was potable, not even! It was good according to my cousins and I believe them. LOL!

Photo Sesh: Sparkles

Another photo session with my cousins. I’m really digging on that bangs! A K-Pop inspired look. Eyeliners eyeliners!
We weren’t prepared at all when it suddenly rained. You can see some blurred raindrops in some photos.

Travel Diary: Paris

Looks familiar? Yes, it’s the church inspired in Disney’s The Hunchback of Notre Dame.
Again, the fault of the French Revolution nearly destroyed the Notre Dame Cathedral. Good thing it was restored a couple of years after.

Travel Diary: Versailles

Just when you thought France is all about glamour and beauty, it turns out to be, well, reality. Except for the Palace of Versailles (Château de Versailles). The most beautiful palace I’ve ever seen (not exaggerating). Those very finely made walls, doors and furniture, paintings on the ceilings (not Michaelangelo). It has so much history.
