Home Cooked Japanese Dinner with K-POP

jdm
So proud of this girl. Haunting Asian Grocery shops like an Asian local. Kristi’s gone next level! Just a few years ago she’d not eaten much more than steak and 3 veg!

gyozaskin
Making her own Gyoza! For reals?!

fry
Oh man.

slowcooker
OMFG that marrow. Japanese Curry! My Slow Cooker finally put to good use haha!

sake
Sake!

gyoza
Perfection, so good and made even better that the coriander came from Kristi’s garden!

curry
MAN SO GOOD! So proud of this girl. Perfecto!!!

croissant
Early morning after Grumpy Baker run saw us in luck as the croissants JUST came out of the oven!

Mad catch ups (as always!) with K-POP. Was a cold but super sunny day so we headed out to the rock pools down by the cliffs and I collected 3 hermit crabs for the tank, amazing as the water in the rock pools is freezing and yet there’s still so much life in them. We then spotted whales breaching the water and man they just kept on coming! We spotted at least 5 whales out there, so rad.

All this time out Kristi had a Japanese Curry slow cooking back at home and man, what a treat dinner was last night. All the textures, flavours and complexities of Japan made in front of my eyes in my kitchen! All these amazing women in my life, treating me to amazing food. I’m fucking blessed!

gt3trs
Would daily this 100%!

ramen
LAAAAMMMEEENNN!!!! Chaco Bar. OMFG I so needed this! I tried the Yuzu Scallop, was tangy and not at all what I was expecting.

salt
Nana went for the Fish Salt, which is the pick on the menu for sure. Broth was so complex!

ariel
Ariel is back on Oxford St! Sadly nowhere near as amazing as the old store though.

pop
Then we checked out this sweet little Warhol exhibit at the AGNSW which showcased Andy’s design work (he was a designer before a famous artist).

roy
Roy de Maistre. My mate in high school studied this piece for his HSC. Always so amazing to see it in real life after seeing it only 5cm large in an art book in high school.

Caught up with Dianne yesterday and it’s so good to hear that her new Food Subscription Box venture Chilli & Vanilla is doing well. She’s onto her 3rd Food Box already. Time flies!

She’s running with the templates Star and I designed, check out these photos of all the latest box inserts which Di designed herself. Her branding is all looking so awesome together!

Her web site is looking good too, visit (and buy yourself, or your Mum a box!): http://www.chilliandvanilla.com.au/

Day 9: Hong Kong

964
964. Man I still can’t believe how close I was to putting money down on one of these once. I’m so glad I didn’t! Much rather just appreciate them from afar.

noairbags
Love it!

SO many more money cars in HK since China infiltrated.

shop
Retail therapy.

herschel
Out with the old, in with the new.

noodlesoup
When in HK one MUST have a bowl of noodle soup from Ho Hung Kee (they have one MICHELIN Star!). They’ve moved into a mall, and it’s not quite the same authentic experience as eating it on the street, but the noodles were just as good as always!

teal
That teal!

happyhour
Happy Hour at the hotel, free drinks!!!

My new mate.

Then we had an EPIC Chinese dinner with some relos.

tesla
These things are EVERYWHERE here in HK. Literally see one every block.

velo6
Spotted this bike shop next door to the hotel, will have to check it out during opening hours.

I like to use shit till it breaks and have had my hipster Herschel laptop backpack for 4 years now. I’m sincerely surprised it’s lasted that long as I assumed nothing trendy is built to last these days. The bag has finally had it though, and the fake leather bits were literally disintegrating and leaving bits of the bag all over my clothes and wherever I put it down (lol), so I was crazy happy to find a Herschel store here in HK that had the exact same model! I went even more timeless this time by fucking off the fake leather bits and going all black. #happydays #wouldratherazenbagtho

PS: Culture shock going from Japan > Hong Kong. Japanese = Clean. Chinese = Dirty!
