day 1959 – swiss roll

it’s a bad idea when you hang out with food friends and all they want is try new dessert places. they also want to split the foods with you and inadvertently split the calories that comes with. this is a piece of the oolong tea swiss roll with a load of ganache in the centre. it was very tasty as expected. i wonder how my mildly lactose body will respond after devouring that

day 1939 – mr. brown

had a day with my parents before heading to grandma’s place for a homecooked dinner. we spent the day shopping at apm and in the area of guan tong. i didn’t but anything in particular, except a matcha ice cream waffle cone from tsujiri. i tell myself it’s okay to indulgence a little, as long as i keep up with the walking and workout. i did, however, meet gigantic mr brown and couldn’t resist the urge to climb on him as per usual. i started a lineup of kids also wanting to sit on gigantic mr brown

day 1937 – grand opening

was there to attend the grand opening of my cousin’s chocolate shop. it wasn’t very interesting because i didn’t even know three quarters of the people that attended. i really had no reason to stay there after the official ceremony, but i guess my mom had to do her socializing. i find that sometimes she takes on too much and becomes more of a counselor, mentor and psychologist for everyone around her. not everyone will appreciate her keen sense of friendliness

day 1935 – bubble tea alley

got to appreciate a good lunch date with hamberite that started with fancy poke bowls and finished off with bubble tea. the alley was coined as one of the best black sugar pearl in the city. i wasn’t going to have too many on this trip, but i wasn’t going to let this one slip away. i haven’t had bubble tea in a while but man was this one good. we walked around mongkok and shamshuipo for the rest of the afternoon. i’m always good to know that last connections like this still exist

day 1910 – crepe cake

girls night out at the gym before crashing a home for movie. we caught up a little while watching deadpool 2. we filled ourselves with homemade poke bowl ingredients before the main event which is all about the dessert delicacies. the earl grey and matcha flavoured crepe cakes plus coloured pearl bubble tea. it was good, but i would have to keep these decadence to a minimal for the meantime. it’s also quite a pricey enjoyment

day 1895 – tiramisu mousse

the guilt of eating the mom’s tiramisu birthday cake is strong, but what’s in my stomach is already inside and can’t be changed. this cake eating was necessary to celebrate the most important woman in my world. the cake was so delicious i even had an extra half a slice. i’ll make this an exception and stay clean for the next stretch. just have to work harder to burn it all off

day 1867 – underconstruction reunion

first vacation day of this year is when an underconstruction crew comes for a visit. this group has been through and abundance together and apart. no matter how far apart we may live, we always got each other. on our day off. we went though the native land of tsawwassen to shop at mills outlet, ate dinner on reserve land of marpole, and tried the famous japanese matcha dessert at nana’s. we had a blast talking about the past, but also excited planning for the future
