LAN KWAI FONG, HONG KONG
Lan Kwai Fong is a popular clubbing/nightlife area in Central, Hong Kong. Locals and foreigners alike can choose among the numerous bars, clubs and restaurants around. We went there with the purpose of staying in one club, but there were so many people, and quite frankly I don’t enjoy noisy places that much so it seems like we ended up doing a photo shoot around the area instead. LOL.
Gyu Jin, Tsim Sha Tsui
For some people, comfort food means french fries, mac and cheese, fried chicken and cakes. What comforts me the most though is hot pot (or shabu shabu as we call it). There’s nothing like that warm soup of delicious broth and spices running down from my throat to my stomach giving me a warm hug from within. lol.
Gyu Jin Shabu Shabu and Sukiyaki was simply the perfect conclusion to a tiring day walking around the streets of Hong Kong. It was delicious, satisfying and UNLIMITED. Woo hoo!
Sugar Factory, BGC
I can’t believe Jeff and I just celebrated our 2nd anniversary! *woot woot!* I can’t remember a time without him anymore. lol. I don’t want to get too cheesy so I’ll leave it at that. For now, let me show you where we decided to eat to celebrate this milestone.
Sugar Factory, originally from the United States, opened its first branch in Asia here in the Philippines. Their Manila store is located in the new Shangri-la at The Fort right beside Kerry’s Sports.
Sunnies Cafe, BGC
Sunnies Cafe is a new brunch-dinner place in Bonifacio Global City opened by the same people who brought us the popular eyewear brand Sunnies Studios. I was apprehensive to try Sunnies Cafe at BGC because I saw lots of bad reviews about it online. But Jeff and I have been wanting to try out a new restaurant and I have to say, it does look appealing so we went ahead anyway.
I recently attended the wedding of my Aunt Jen and Julpha in Washington late May. I have to say, it was one of the most beautiful weddings I have ever attended. The venue could not have been more perfect for the rustic theme the couple was going for.
The other half of our trip was spent in Osaka. The environment was very different but no less interesting.
We left Kyoto Hotel Monterey late afternoon, rode a train and arrived in Osaka Brighton Hotel after about 2 hours. We didn’t waste time and went immediately to Dotonbori! As expected, it was a very busy place with lots of interesting installments and decorations around.
*This post is long overdue. I couldn’t figure out how to write about it at first because we went to so many places and I took tons of photos. It was so hard to organize in my mind in a way that I feel you guys would appreciate.
