Happy Mothers’ Day!

I recently went home to Hong Kong for the first time in 3 years for… a day.
24 hours with my awesome parents, our family helmed by my stylin’ mum.

Picking me up from the airport. Mum hates candids. She’s trying to look elegant and animated while pointing her ‘don’t you dare’ finger at me.

We ate at Pizza Hut because whenever anyone goes home, we revert back to childhood. Too bad I didn’t get any crayons or pogs to play with.

I know you’re all going to say that I look a lot like my mum. In Chinese, the term is “behng yun”, which literally means biscuit print, well, cookie cutter. Making babies with the same mold as the parent! I am a cookie. I want cookies. Caveacookiepreeznowpreez?

CUTE!!

Mum’s the boss. She prefers the whole family to be colour co-ordinated, it’s very pre-Victoria-Beckham.
Here we are at a yum cha restaurant. I won’t be there to celebrate Mothers’ Day with her this year but if I could I’d probably bring her to Leanne’s restaurant, The Cardinal,

for

Mothers’ Day Brunch!


Site recently re-invigorated by my handsome #BoweryBF, T.C. Meggs!

HAPPY MOTHERS’ DAY TO ALL THE LOVELY MOMMIES OUT THERE!

Big Hunks

If there’s anywhere in the world you’d find a big hunk roaming around with an even more handsome dog, it’d be San Francisco.

Went to Noe Valley for brunch at Chloe’s Cafe to catch up with Randy.

Hoping he could hook us up with some total babes, being one himself.

Big hunks, please.

Instead he just went about being babely in his own right, dazzling my friends with his nifty little Square. Oh yea we ate some pretty good food, too. Croissant French toast smothered in strawberries, omelettes with avocado and Jarlsberg cheese, four sides of bacon, and pumpkin spice pancakes. Mmmm before…

‘n after photes.

Then we wandered around the city hoping to catch someone to share our temporarily happy ever afters.

Figured the Mission was the place to go to find some pretty (dirty fuckin’ hipster) babies. Occupy Soup!

He’s gotta love books

and bj’s.

Be curious.

Be the best.

Book a room for two with the lovebird special.
(P.S. wouldn’t mind holing up with Jeff Canham, whose ‘For The Birds’ exhibit this is from. Like OMG what a babe.)

Be SMRT. I love these.

But alas, we had no luck finding these hunks. Guess we’re not parking our asses here in NorCal anytime soon.

Thanks given

While you’re probably gearing up for American Thanksgiving, I’ve already had a Canadian Thanksgive’r.
Luckily, I was back home in Toronto in October with so many of my precious babies so I had much to be thankful for.

Little lady bird, Emma.

We wanted brunch and beautiful men. Where else would you go but the gaybourhood?
The food and the patio view at Fire on the East Side was heavenly.

Though, I think these two were already gonna lead me straight there. Trudy Patootie and Candy baby.

Smoked salmon benedict. They serve you banana bread to begin with, and what makes this benedict so scrumptious is the corn bread it’s lain on instead of a crusty English muffin.

Stuffed french toast with cheescake and berry filling. Sausages on the side.

Took the ferry to see the island and show these one and a half American girls what Canada looks like by the water.

This is how we rock it in the T-dot.

Went exploring and sighing at all the charming little island cottages and hiked on a nature trail. Much needed break from all the chaos.

Made us tired and hungwee. Which was juuuuuust right cuz it was my annual Orphans’ Thanksgiving Dinner night!!

Passing on the tradition of turkey dinner at Sneaky Dee’s that I’ve had for the past 5 Thanksgivings!

At first they thought it was just some bullshit grimey dive bar until they finally tasted the meat, tater, and gravy feast.

Way better than their aunt so-n-so’s, I hear.

Also, snickers pie.

So yea, thank you, thank you, and thank you, too!

Fat pigs at Fat Spoon

If you thought I did much else other than work and eat, you’d be wrong.

Three little piggies went to Little Tokyo after reading The Minty’s post on Fat Spoon during it’s opening week.

Specialising in Japanese style curry, pasta, and salad.

Grilled Vegetable Salad

Chilli oil, pickled onions, pickled daikon

Spaghetti Carbonara. I love Japanese style pastas because they pack a ton of flavour in a much lighter form in comparison to regular Italian fare. I don’t know what the change in recipe is, but it feels less heavy, hearty, and carbicide-y. Just the right amount of creamy cheesiness.

I ordered a side of the sauteed mushrooms. They were pretty bland and dry so I dumped them into my pasta dish. Only disappointing item, though. Rest of the food was fab.

Seafood curry. Love the roasty sweetness to the sauce.
Now for the REAL reason why we came…

Ice cream sundae with LOTTE KOALA COOKIES!!! How cute is this? AND they put strawberry pocky in it, too.
Too cute. To. Die.

P.S. I’m going to start sending little love letters to y’all. Who knows what e-surprises I have in store for ya. Maybe some secrets. Mostly the things I’m secretly eating. Maybe something even better. If you want to hear from me,

L’Avenue du Plateau

L’Avenue down the street from our Montreal apartment had a serious line outside every single day for brunch. So naturally, we had to join the sheep herd and try it for ourselves.

Record label menus.

Reunited! M&Ms, Marissa and Maria.

Another favourite ‘M’ of mine, Mimosa.

This is what I ordered. The mushroom thing. I can’t remember what’s it’s actually called on the menu because my memory in French isn’t as good as it is in regular human.

Everything was in huge portions! And my god. The fruit skewers… so good! The taters, not so good. Bit too heavily greased and seasoned. Eat those last if you have the room.

L’Arc-en-ciel. Smoked salmon benny.

Wisconsin, Paris, and DC in the house! Kelly, Christophe, and Reyhan.

The Mediterranean. I ordered this the next time – usually comes with feta. Eggs, tomato, spinach, and cheese. So fresh ‘n so good. Line up is well worth it!

Omakase at Kanpai

I’ve left LA and it’s been can’t-stop-won’t-stop since we’ve come to Montreal.
Taking a brunch and free wifi break to finally update!

Our flight was delayed for 3 hours and luckily my favourite restaurant in LA, Kanpai, is just a few miles away from LAX. Usually the manager, Peter, or at least Tony would order all my faves for me. Since I had no clue what they were called I ordered “Omakase” – chef’s choice!

Here are the sashimi masterpieces the chef made for me!

Monk fish liver with caviar.

Jellyfish in vinegar.

Seared toro with truffle sauce. Octopus on the left.

Second platter

Albacore and fig wrap in basil sauce.

Bonito in radish sauce.

Rainbow salmon with papaya.

HEAVEN.

Macaroon swoon

Tony and Etienne already had brunch so while I had eggs, they had tiramisu.

I just love looking at these baked good beauties.

Eclairs. Don’t those Raspberry cake domes look perfect for Chrimbo?

Oh man, marshmallows and fruit tarts. Kryptonite.

Multi-coloured macaroons!

Loveliest little box. I’d rather get one of these than a Tiffany blue one, honest.

I chose the Salted Caramel, Raspberry, Earl Grey, and Grand Cru macaroons. I recommend the salted caramel and earl grey ones. They’ve got nice counter flavours to balance out the sweetness.

My little box of joy. More orange in the outfit. NDP brup brup!
Chiffon Pleated Skirt and Basic Bodysuit from American Apparel.
PS1 Wallet from Proenza Schouler.

P.S. I STARTED A TUMBLR!! My blog will feature posts by me and the tumblr will be a collection of things I love by other people. FOLLOW PLEASE.
