Lost in Taipei…Literally

I will be honest and admit that I wasn’t initially excited for this trip to Taiwan. I had so much going on with work and life that a last minute trip to Taiwan seemed more tedious than anything. I texted Cdj after I landed in Taipei airport feeling defeated for whatever reasons being back. His… Read More Lost in Taipei…Literally

Mr Goose (revisit to 2nd location) – Hualien, Taiwan

I consider Hualien my second home here in Taiwan. It’s become a routine to visit Hualien whenever I come back. This trip was no exception. I didn’t have many expectations other than to eat really good food while I was there. My mom and great uncle had a few surprises for me which I’ll share… Read More Mr Goose (revisit to 2nd location) – Hualien, Taiwan

Ding Xian 101 (pre set 9 course meal) – 86th floor @ Taipei 101

Yep. I’m in Taiwan! It’s been a few days and I’m still acclimating to the time change. It’s been more brutal than ever especially this visit as I’ve had to keep up with work as well. Taiwanese people are known to express themselves through food. Or sharing of food. Well, or treating for food. I… Read More Ding Xian 101 (pre set 9 course meal) – 86th floor @ Taipei 101

Travels

Portland Oregon – Part II

It’s a bit surreal that I’m sitting at LAX right now. This week has blown by so quickly. Kinda like the autumn leaves in Portland Oregon. This will be a mostly photo blog post as the wifi at LAX sucks pretty bad. Friend had taken me to fancy places but I really wanted something simple… Read More Portland Oregon – Part II

Portland Oregon (72 hours) – Part I

I don’t exactly do last minute flights anywhere. It’s not really my thing. But a friend recently asked me to visit and offered to use his miles to purchase a ticket. I didn’t realize it cost him 50,000 miles to buy a ticket a few days before my trip. He travels extensively for work so… Read More Portland Oregon (72 hours) – Part I

Handoo Korean BBQ ( AYCE Korean BBQ) – San Diego, CA

This cooler weather has been making me happy. It rained (at least in my neck of the woods) Sunday morning which made me cozy up on the sofa even more before I headed to church. The cooler weather also makes me hungry. I guess it’s the whatever-bear-that’s-supposed-to-be-hibernating-in-the-winter in me. Gosh, is it almost winter too?… Read More Handoo Korean BBQ ( AYCE Korean BBQ) – San Diego, CA

The Marshall Store ( Best surprise trip ever! ) – Tomales Bay, CA

I just re read the title post and chuckled. What if people think this post is about me going to Marshalls (the department store). Joking aside, this is a belated post about my trip to San Francisco some weeks ago. I had the most memorable surprise day trip. Kat and Al had suggested either Napa… Read More The Marshall Store ( Best surprise trip ever! ) – Tomales Bay, CA

Jasmine Express (Chicken Feet is expensive per Toe) – San Diego, CA

Quick post here as I’m still shaking my head about my penchant for math when it comes to food. I was in Convoy and had a coupon to burn at Kula (which has gone down hill BTW). I had a quick lunch at Kula but wanted to bring some dim sum back for a late… Read More Jasmine Express (Chicken Feet is expensive per Toe) – San Diego, CA

Patron Meat Market & Deli – San Marcos, CA

I’ve been having a lot of meetings recently. Meetings tend to go better when there’s food available. I was in San Marcos and decided to visit Patron Meat Market & Deli. Someone told me this market has a hot deli section and makes huge burritos at an affordable price.

Sushi Kyodai (Lunch Specials) – Carmel Mountain, CA

This post makes me miss my grandmother. We visited Sushi Kyodai a few weeks ago for lunch. Costco is nearby so we would often spend time there (isn’t it funny how my family members share the same penchant for Costco). Sushi Kyodai is located in the same center as Home Depot in Carmel Mountain. There… Read More Sushi Kyodai (Lunch Specials) – Carmel Mountain, CA
