Pier 39 is not only a pier, it’s a popular tourist site with shops, restaurants, 7D experience and sea lions! Wanna grab a bottle of bath salt? Look at the pretty colours!

US Trip December 2016- San Francisco Day 2: Farmer’s Market

I came to two realizations on this day. Realization No. 1: I finally understood why everyone drives in America. If you ever go to America with an elderly, a 5 year old kid and it’s your first time there, it’s better to just drive. If you can’t drive, try to take Uber. The location pinpoint… Continue reading US Trip December 2016- San Francisco Day 2: Farmer’s Market

Chocolate Pancakes with Strawberries & custard

I saw these folded strawberry pancakes in a Japanese food market the other day and thought they looked absolutely appetizing. Though I’m more of a chocolate lover so I decided to do up my own version of chocolate pancakes~ This is a very quick and easy version. My son enjoyed this dessert very much. If… Continue reading Chocolate Pancakes with Strawberries & custard

Matcha Cake with Adzuki beans filling

I miss the Matcha cake from Miss V bakery in Taipei~ So I tried making my own. The taste isn’t similar, but I guess it sort of curbed my craving for a while! Matcha cake with adzuki beans, coated with almonds and sprinkle of dried osmanthus flowers. I hadn’t actually planned on adding almonds but it’s nearing expiry and… Continue reading Matcha Cake with Adzuki beans filling
