Just a little note from me

Hi, it's me. Hello? Are you there? I don't even know if anyone else other than some friends and family know that my little blog exists however I'd like to say thank you to anyone reading this. I originally planned to keep writing about my trip to Korea but somehow...

Noryangjin Fish Market, Seoul

Noryangjin Fish Market, Seoul

Coming from the Philippines, a trip to the fish market is usually at the very bottom of my list of things to do when I travel abroad. Before my dad worked as a mechanic in the Middle East, he was a fisherman and our family operated a fish business.  At the time, we...

Beautiful Seoul

Beautiful Seoul

When I was still in university, I lived in a student residence. I was young, I was having a lot of fun and I was also almost always broke. My neighbourhood was full of English language schools for young South Korean students. Essentially their parents...

Le 14 juillet, Paris

I'm finally able to sit down and spend a few hours editing my pictures from my trip to Seoul last year. I'm a bit slow at this because life gets in the way, plus I'm also reluctant to spend my time sitting in front of the computer when the daylight hours...

Korean Dakdoritang (Sweet and Spicy Chicken Stew)

I know, I know. It's summer right now and I really shouldn't be eating this but I'm addicted so here it is. Dakdoritang (Korean spicy chicken stew with potatoes) was my first real meal when I arrived in Seoul. I had to get up early in the morning to avoid...

Korean Style Mixed-Greens (Sigeumchi-namul)

When I visited Seoul in May 2016, I think I’ve met some of the nicest people ever. I travelled alone. I needed a break after my planned photography project didn't work out as planned. To be honest, I also needed a little personal space because when visiting family in...

Soba Noodle Salad with Spicy Lime and Miso Dressing

Soba Noodle Salad with Spicy Lime and Miso Dressing

Soba Noodle Salad with Spicy Lime and Miso Dressing I’m a die-hard carnivore. Eating just plain old salad is not exactly appealing to me but there are vegetarians in my extended family. Now and then when they visit, I have to come up with decent vegetarian meals so...

Victoria

Victoria

Meet Victoria, it's her birthday today so I suppose I should talk about this absolutely gorgeous but unabashedly humble city which also happens to be my home for the last eleven years. We're on Vancouver Island, an island (duh) that is about 2 scenic hours away by...

Roast Pork

Roast Pork

Roast Pork I love pork. To me personally, pigs are the lesser-appreciated gods. It breaks my heart that there are no feast days reserved to honour these truly noble beasts. Roast pork is a busy person’s best friend. I would often cook a big roast on the weekend when I...
