Traveling – The Photographers I Have Been

As a food blogger, it was sometimes disappointing to have put so much effort into a thorough review, a well balanced photo, or an in depth vacation recap, only to find that people respond most to photos of ramen and burgers. There was no space in my food blog for my photography work like the […]

Traveling – Two Meals in Half Moon Bay

Seafood in seaside towns are often some of the best. This is why we only wanted to eat seafood during our short stay in Half Moon Bay. Here are two notable meals we had. The Fisherman’s Taverna Right off the main street heading in to the town was a corner lot that looked much like […]

Michelin Star and Other Good Restaurants in Hong Kong

Hong Kong is super rich with Michelin starred eateries. There are so many restaurants in general so the chances of boasting more Michelin star winners is higher. I’ve been to Hong Kong twice and had a chance to try some of the winning restaurants. Of course, I can’t afford or get in to the 3 […]

Traveling – One Day in Half Moon Bay

Wedding anniversaries in increments of 5 or 10 years sound like a big deal. When we passed our 5 year mark, it didn’t feel that big. I wonder when anything will feel important enough for me to splurge on a meal at The French Laundry? We’ve never been big on celebrating things on time although […]

Traveling – Hong Kong Sights and Scenery

This very lucky little boy has been able to travel a few times so far. Seriously though, take advantage of free flights before 2. It’ll start to cost a lot to travel with kids later. We visited family in Hong Kong in December 2016 and I was able to capture so many good photos of […]

Traveling – Hong Kong Food

In my limited overseas travel, I find that my favorite foods from other countries tend to be fruits and vegetables. Some are simply too perishable to transport and others just taste differently in a different country. Thai green beans tasted so different in Thailand in an indescribable way. I mean, we have lots of green […]

Fisherman’s Wharf in Monterey

Last weekend, we spend a day trip in Monterey for a friend’s birthday. The weather could not be more perfect for a seaside hang out. The morning started at Water + Leaves, a coffee shop on Fisherman’s Wharf. Pretty much the coolest blank-plus-blank name ever, right? Frankly,  I never expected Monterey to have something so cool. […]

Austin 2016 Photo Diary

Two years ago, I went to Austin, TX for the first time to attend my first BlogHer Food Conference. It would be my first of three BlogHer conferences. The experience was my first exposure to the business of blogging and seeing how people can make money doing what they love. I came back daydreaming about […]

Sonoma 2016 – Goose and Gander

The Napa Valley has so much great food and small cities to enjoy. For a recent bachelorette party, we dined at Goose and Gander in St. Helena. I split with my friend and here was our small spread.   Cucumber Collins ($13) – Square One Cucumber Vodka, Yuzu Lemon, Fresh and pickled cucumber slices, Huckleberries, […]

Sonoma 2016 – Frank Family Vineyards – El Dorado Kitchen – AirBnB

A few weeks back, I went to my good friend’s bachelorette getaway in Sonoma. We stayed at the cutest AirBnB ever. Totes perf for a girl’s trip. It looked like someone bought all the teal and moroccan patterned items from Home Goods and decorated the home. We arrived on a Friday afternoon and cooked a […]
