Beef 2012 by Seungho Lee

Posted on November 9, 2012 by Toothpicker

This blog post is long overdue... I told Seungho that I would write about his award-winning MA project after my Helsinki trip, but it has taken me all this time to get round to it!
I have been corresponding with Seungho from About:blank via emails since I started stocking their notebooks. Hence, it [...]

Fiesta Flamenca at The Forge

Posted on October 28, 2012 by Toothpicker

 
It has been a while since I last attended a live music/ dance gig, so when I found out about a live flamenco performance at The Forge in Camden, I suggested it to my friend, who is also a fan of different dance forms.
I only discovered The Forge last year and was [...]

New York blues

Posted on October 15, 2012 by Toothpicker

 
A few months ago, knowing that I would have a few busy months ahead of X'mas, I decided to spend my last 'holiday' of 2012 in New York. I once lived in this city and since moving back to London, I would return regularly until work took over two years ago. My [...]

An evening at Mapopo organic community farm

Posted on May 31, 2012 by Toothpicker

Whenever I travel to Hong Kong, I would seek out unusual activities or places to visit, I am more interested in the 'alternative' side beyond shopping and eating. On this visit, I found out about Mapopo organic community farm in Fanling, New Territories, where they would host an evening with guided walk [...]

Matchamania

Posted on February 13, 2012 by Toothpicker

Coffee has always been my obsession and I can't drink enough of it. But since a few years ago, I developed a new obsession with green tea latte (basically it's matcha powder + hot milk + sugar), which was almost impossible to find in London until recently.
Everytime I go to Japan/ Asia [...]

Beat the winter blues... baking

Posted on February 5, 2012 by Toothpicker

My walking group's outing to the Chilterns has been cancelled due to the snow, so I am staying indoors for the day. Then I suddenly had this urge to bake... I love cooking but baking isn't exactly my thing. However, since I discovered a great muffin recipe last year, I have been [...]

Beat the winter blues...

Posted on February 3, 2012 by Toothpicker

After a hectic trip to Paris, I had to return to work... i.e. back to my computer. Ironiclly, as much as I like what I do, I don't enjoy working in front of the computer all the time, hence, I would try to get out whenever possible esp. out of London.
The drop [...]

My ideal day in Paris...

Posted on February 1, 2012 by Toothpicker

I have a love/hate relationship with Paris (like I do with London, New York and Hong Kong), perhaps it's like any human relationships, the less you know, the better. Now that I keep a fair distance from Paris, I am able to enjoy it more. Contrary to the advice from travel guidebooks [...]

Clams & linguine alle vongole

Posted on January 21, 2012 by Toothpicker

Unlike most people, I am not a huge fan of pasta and I don't particularly like pasta with tomato-based sauces. My favourite pasta dish is linguine alle vongole, which is simple, easy and quick to cook but taste delicious.
Since I embarked on a 'meatless' home diet last year, I have been experimenting [...]

Fernandez & Wells

Posted on January 7, 2012 by Toothpicker

Coincidentally, I happened to be at two different Fernandez & Wells branches within a week. I have always like their Soho branch, it's small, casual and I particularly like the fact that it's hidden away off the main street. Besides, apart from maybe Lisboa Patisserie on Goldborne Road, their Portuguese custard tarts [...]
