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

Portland Oregon – Part II

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
