Bo-lo’gne

Like being up high? So do Spoon and I. Therefore a trip to the tallest building in Hong Kong was inevitable. The sky100 observation deck is on the 100th floor of the International Commerce Centre and boasts a 360° view of Hong Kong in all its special-administrating and skyscraping GLORY. After our descent, we ...

Tahrar Muslim Restaurant

With Xinjiang cuisine fast becoming one of my favourite things to eat, I was constantly on the hunt for Ugyhur restaurants in Shanghai, especially as I was so poor at spotting them. After arriving in Dapuqiao station, we (Spoon) found the Tahrar Muslim Restaurant where we ordered... ...ZIRAR MUTTON I still don't ...

Tasty Congee&Noodle Wantun Shop

I like my ipod. It's usually the only way I get to listen to Disney and SHINee on my way to work. (I'm beyond caring, therefore your judgment has no place here). This doesn't mean I'm obsessed with Apple or anything like that.

In my humble opinion, the lantern exhibition just outside the Hong Kong Cultural ...

Sad times indeed. Ah well, ...

Muslim Food

East Nanjing Road is considered to be one of the busiest shopping streets in the world. This is the place to go if you just gots to shop. I am not a shopper. I dislike queues, fitting rooms and endless hangers. In fact, if it ain't trainers or books, then I ain't interested. I do however have a fondness for this particular ...

PENTAHOTEL: Noodle Bar

Our hotel in Beijing was outstanding. The room was spacious, we didn't have to co-ordinate getting dressed, Spoon didn't spend most of her time packing her suitcase in the hallway and we didn't have to shower over the sink. In fact, our bathroom in Beijing was probably the same size as our whole room in Hong Kong. There was ...
