Itsara

Itsara

It was a busy work week for both Stan and I, so we thought what better way to reward ourselves than to indulge in a¬†upmarket Thai restaurant. After reading up some rave reviews and visiting its Facebook page, we decided to give Itsara a go. […]

Seafood Char Kway Teow

Seafood Char Kway Teow

I’ve been wanting to try making char kway teow, otherwise known as stir fried flat rice noodles, for quite sometime now. Back then, I’d seen one of my aunts attempted this hawker dish several times but it always ended up in a big sloppy pile. […]

Gusto Food

Gusto Food

It was pouring as Stan and I made our way to Gusto Food last weekend. Thankfully, the weather cleared up when we arrived despite it continued to be chilly. Unsurprisingly, the cafe was packed and there was already a line outside. Perhaps it was due […]

Day 16 –  Disneysea!

Day 16 – Disneysea!

Our visit to Disney Sea didn’t make us feel like it was our ‘happiest day on Earth.’ At least, for the first half of the day. It was our 16th day in Japan, so tension was running a bit high due to exhaustion and my […]

Dry Wonton Noodles Recipe

Dry Wonton Noodles Recipe

Stan and I have been trying out several recipes from the cookbooks that we have bought a couple of months ago. Unfortunately, we often¬†fail to take any pictures of them as we were usually famished by the time we finished cooking. If it were not […]

Day 15 – Disneyland!

Day 15 – Disneyland!

When I was a child, my mum told me that she would bring the entire family to Disneyland if we won the lottery. Well, that day never come- the lottery part that is. However, Stan and I did go to Disneyland, though winning the lottery […]

Day 14 – Asakusa/Skytree

Day 14 – Asakusa/Skytree

It was a cold and dreary morning when we returned to Tokyo from Nagoya. Stan’s camera battery simply ran out on our last day at Nagoya, hence there is no post for day 13. We spent that whole day just wondering around the shopping area. […]

Varsity Bar

Varsity Bar

It had been a rather slow month for both Stan and I. First, there was the release of Pillars of Eternity, so we had been on rotations, playing that game on his Steam account. It was then followed by the release of Bloodborne and finally Stan’s CPA […]

Lemon and Poppy Seed Cake with Lemon Syrup

Lemon and Poppy Seed Cake with Lemon Syrup

With the weather getting cooler and Stan’s CPA exam just around the corner, we have been staying in on most weekends lately. Besides gaming, I usually try to whip up something just to entertain myself while Stan is studying. His parents dropped by just a […]

The Gaya Korean Resturant

The Gaya Korean Resturant

Alright, it has been awhile since we last posted a restaurant review. Stan injured his Achilles tendon from playing tennis whereas I re-injured my lower back just a few weeks ago. With Stan needing to rest his foot and sitting more than an hour causes […]
