Elements 圓方 Hong Kong

Elements 圓方 Hong Kong

My friend Annie took me straight to Elements right after my sad 12-hour plane ride due to typhoon. I left Jakarta at 8 am and arrived in Hong Kong at 8 pm. I was stranded in Ho Chi Minh City for about 4 hours inside the plane.

Elements is a huge shopping mall connected to the airport express station of Kowloon. I guess the reason why it is called Elementsis because the mall is divided into…

Porridge Oats

Annie recommended me a good porridge oats produced by CitySuper, which tastes very differently from the most commonly seen oat brand, Quaker. Other than oats, there are many varieties of muesli, such as cranberry Delight, Apple & Apricot Muesli, All Fruit Muesli, Swiss Style Muesli, and Fruit Crunch Muesli. 20140917_185401

I divided the 500 gram of porridge oats to three containers; one for Riri, another one…

Anpan あんパン by Chef Riri

Anpan あんパン by Chef Riri

Anpan is a Japanese term for sweet bread filled with sweet red bean paste (anko). Screen Shot 2014-09-22 at 9.27.04 AM

Chef Riri took the anpan to another level by adding jasmine tea and sesame. Chef Riri put a generous amount of homemade sweet red bean paste (anko) in each bread. The sweetness level of the ankowas just right for me, but some of the red beans were still a little bit hard, maybe they should have been soaked longer…

Mamma Rosy

Caprese Salad. I was surprised that someone actually likes this appetizer a lot. I didn’t find it interesting, as it only contains tomato and mozzarella cheese, served with pesto sauce.

Pasta Menu. There are selections of dry and fresh pasta. For dry pasta, you may select the cooking option: “normal” or “al dente”, just like choosing the steak doneness. Screen Shot 2014-09-15 at 10.48.39 AM

Bakmi Bintang Gading

Bintang Gading is one of legendary noodle shops in Kelapa Gading, originated from Ujung Pandang (Makassar). This place is never empty, and I think it is open 24 hours. 20140912_072442 20140912_072738 20140912_072825

The Bakso Goreng (Fried Meatball) was still hot, maybe they just finished frying new batch. Each table has 4 pieces. 20140912_071802 20140912_071849

The condiments on the table (from left to right): salty soy sauce, white pepper and sesame oil. I didn’t…

Gado Gado (no brand)

Gado Gado (no brand)

I was amazed by this gado gado seller located at the side of my office complex, Komplek Gading Bukit Indah. He made the gado gado sauce in big batch, but the sauce is well mixed. However, the seller rejected any customisation. I usually eat gado gado with sauce on the side, but this seller put together the sauce and the vegetables. My cousin requested for non spicy sauce, but this seller said he…

Mangosteen Coffee

I was so intrigued to try this instant Mangosteen Coffee when I saw it at a grocery store; however, I was quite disappointed after trying it since I could only taste creamer but no mangosteen flavour at all. 20140909_075845 20140909_080002My dad drinks Mangosteen Xanthone capsules everyday, because according to research, mangosteen have many health benefits, such as helps combat Parkinson and Alzheimer’s disease, lowers…

Yesterday was Alex’s birthday, so we made a mini surprise party for him. I bought the wrong candle, so there was only “2” on the cake. He turned 29 this year, but I bought the candles with number “27”.
