Woodstock’s Pizza, Davis

Woodstock’s Pizza is one of the restaurants most students from UC Davis know about.

The food and alcohol is decently priced, add on the fact that Wi-fi is free, many students choose this joint as a gathering destination.

Cheese Bread

Bread Talk

In Singapore, I came across a bakery that definitely stood out in the crowd. Their buns have the best texture and their bread is amazing. Bite into a Bread Talk bun and you will be thinking to yourself “Am I eating bread? or cotton candy?” The texture of the buns is ohh so soft and ohh so good.

Pineapple Cake

King of Fruit – Durian

Have you ever eaten a fruit so pungent that eating it in public will bring about rallies of stares and frowns? I am talking about the king of fruit, durian. Mostly found in Southern Asian countries like Malaysia and Thailand, durian has a mace like appearance and a smell unlike anything else.

Dim Sum Guide

Dim Sum is a Cantonese style of dining that usually takes place during the early mornings til late lunchtime. In a background of the usual hustling and bustling, barrels or plates of mini-meals ,each with its distinctive flavor make their way in specially designed heated Dim Sum karts across a field of customers (often times more hungry than wild-beasts in the present of oh so delicious foods.) Eating Dim Sum can be pretty hectic and often times just plain confusing given the list of seemingly endless options. In this post, I will try to make your dim sum experience an easier one to swallow by guiding you (with beautiful pictures of course) through many of the common dishes.

Singapore Food Hunt

From candy stores to the legendary hawker stalls, Singapore is widely known for their scrumptious foods and appetizing snacks. Thinking back to the past, even seconds after stepping foot into the airplane (Singapore-bound), my mind began uncontrollably drifting away. At first, developing in my mind were minute thoughts of food but as the aircraft drew closer and closer to Changi Airport my inner beast started speaking to me.
I was hungry and a food hunt in Orchard Road was in order.

Pictures with an Amazing Vanishing Point Perspective

In order to create an illusion of depth in photography, you need perspective. One way to create perspective is by using a vanishing point, or two. The vanishing point is situated, say, infinite miles away and the lines in your picture are moving towards that point, making it look like your bridge, road, fence, tunnel is infinitely long. Just enjoy these amazing photos below.

Steak Fajita

In a previous post I talked about the Peking Roast Duck Wrap, a Chinese concoction consisting of sliced roast duck, green onions, and melon slices. Today, I would like to talk about a comparable dish, the Mexican steak fajita.

Foods of varying cultures obviously differ but the resemblances are ample.

Though the dishes originated in different continents, the resemblances are not hard to see.
Both of these dishes involve stuffing some sort of wrap with ingredients until your heart contents.

Japanese Octopus Balls Takoyaki

Takoyaki, octopus ball is a popular street snack in Japan. It is a perfect blend of batter, pickled ginger, and onion cooked on a specially designed pan. Takoyaki is a street snack that can be found in many busy streets of Japan. However, with strong Japanese influence in China, I wasn’t incredibly surprised when I found a stall selling them in China.


Guide to Sushi

Sounds simple enough; right? Originating in Japan, sushi has a long line of history and it definitely shows with the styles and varieties that exist today.
Nigiri, Gunkan, Maki, and Temaki.
So what does all these terms actually mean and how many types of sushi are there? This sushi guide will explain (with beautiful pictures of course) the “species” of sushi that are commonly found in sushi restaurants.


Eating at Tulalip Casino

On my way from Seattle to Vancouver after seeing the Space Needle my stomach started growling uncontrollably. It was lunch time and I was hungry. Luckily for me, I passed by a relatively large casino. I’ve never heard of Tulalip Casino but figuring that most casinos have a well stocked buffet with decently priced food, I stopped by. After all, most casinos depend on the cheap food to bring in customers where they can squeeze every penny out of them at the slot machines.

Conveyor Belt Sushi

A while back, I wrote about the different types of sushi. Today, I am going to talk about a unique way in which they are served. Initially developed as a way to decrease staffing, conveyor belt sushi (a.k.a sushi train, revolving sushi) venues make for a fresh and interesting meal.

With the long lines of eagerly awaiting customers, it is pretty hard to miss the restaurant should you walk by it.

Genting Highlands has a boat load of entertainment. There is something to do for everybody no matter what your idea of fun may be.

After a day of fun at the casino, arcade, and amusement park I hopped on over to the Genting Highlands Buffet to fill my empty stomach.

The buffet is Las Vegas style, featuring delights from many corners of the world.


Eating An Illegal Hot Dog

The bacon wrapped hot dog as you can imagine is a heart attack in a meal and violates a few health regulations. Also, the hot dogs are cooked on modified shopping carts that probably don’t pass health inspection.

According to the Los Angeles Health department the only certified methods of cooking hot dogs are boiled and steamed. But who with their right minds will want to eat a soggy hot dog?

Often times you will see police or health regulators tracking down the “law breaking” hot dog vendor and the vendors run like there is no tomorrow to avoid punishment.
Violators of the “law” are subject to impoundment, fines, and jail time. Jail time for selling hot dogs? That is right…One woman actually received a 45 day sentence for violating health regulations by selling bacon wrapped hot dogs.

Hong kong high tea

Hong Kongers really love their high tea. Usually around 3 to 5 pm in the afternoon, Hong Kongers like to take a little break in their busy day to sip a cup of tea and have a side of bread or two.At the same time, this is the time of day when you get the biggest bang for your buck. Tea and bread combo goes for only 2-3dollars USD. Pretty sweet deal if you ask me.

Powell River

Powell River is probably one of the more remote places around. Getting there is no easy feat. Please allow me to elaborate.

From Vancouver, it is a half hour drive to Horseshoe Bay where you would await the arrival of the first ferry. The first ferry ride is a rough 40 minutes from Horseshoe Bay to Langdale.

From Langdale, you would have to drive to the other side of the island and wait for the arrival of the second ferry. The second ferry is a longer 50 minutes ride from Earls Cover to Saltery Bay. Finally, from Saltery Bay you would drive to Powell River.

Okay, I get it…Powell River is hard to get to and in the middle of nowhere. But why would I want to go there anyways? Don’t be hasty, I am getting to that part.

July Fourth (4th) in Los Angeles

It is kinda late to talk about Fourth of July… but better late than never right? Fourth of July is somewhat a bit deal for fireworks in California especially since that’s the only time its legal. Usually stay home for dinner on 4th but decide to go out instead. Baked bolognese topped with garlic bread for dinner. Yum!

Spent the weekend at San Pedro. California is full of beaches, each with its own “personality.” Went early to see the Korean friendship bell. I was pretty tempted to go in and knock on it but the caution tape got the best of me.

The grasses that grow on the coastal dunes go by several names (Marram Grass, Bent Grass, Beachgrass, since you asked).

Moreover, in photography they create a very distinct atmosphere as you can see in the following pictures below.

Flight to Alaska

Looking at the different stores in the waiting area. The currency exchange at the airport usually gives a lower rate for exchanges. But do keep in mind you are also paying for the convenience. I guess they weren’t open at 6:00am though.

Anchorage and Denali, Alaska

Day 1 of Alaska brings me to this “wilderness lodge” in Denali. Also known as “middle of nowhere, Alaska.” Driving around downtown… Anchorage is much bigger than I imagined but 30minutes is more than enough to see everything there.
