…If you know, you know!
And as for the avocados, I don’t how you can not love them!
So yes this post is just to say “I love avocados” and that I do not rate anyone who does not share the same feeling. Plus, this is a cool pic!
Ohh and to make reference to the video of the kid that went viral; of him unwrapping his presents, one being an avocado and his reaction! An avocado…thannkkss! I love it! Mostly because he was so grateful for such a basic gift and also because personally, I think its an ideal present! – Can’t go wring really!
…As a foodie, I love cooking and baking just as much as I love eating! And when I get carried away watching Master Chef, inspiration takes over and I think i’m a professional chef!
This simple yet oh-so-tasty dish consisted of an olive oil brushed roasted red pepper, stuffed with honey infused spicy curry lentils and tender green beans, accompanied by rosemary dusted roast potatoes, a side of garlic mayonnaise and dots of sun-dried tomatoes pesto!
As summer approaches, so does the urgent desire to have that “bikini bod” and the need to look “summer-time-fine”; so I am sure I’m not the only one who is eating healthier, detoxing and exercising more with the promise of feeling good!
Although I am yet to start (maybe) the completely green detox juices/smoothies, I have jumped on the green drink bandwagon- I’m just mixing it slightly more and cutting out the kale! I know, I know, its a superfood and all and probably one of the most vital ingredients but I can’t- It’s just tastes awful. I’ll stick to the spinach and banana for now thanks! #GoingGreen
…Being back here. In paradise. Listening to the slight breeze in between the palm trees, with the sounds of the ocean washing up upon the shore in the distance. As much much as there was a “noise” there was a blissful silence in the air. To go with Mother Earth’s whisper, her…[Continue Reading]
Like preaching to the choir!
…Well some of it. It may have been Bali, Cambodia and briefly Malaysia last year, but this year it was time to revisit Thailand and take my first trip to China. Honestly, with weather as cold as it is in Beijing at this time of year, I never saw myself visiting China anytime soon, but as a stop over destination en route to/from Thailand, I thought why not. After choosing the longest layover time, I looked into things to do with eight hours to spare in the capital of China and lo-and-behold I found myself at one of the “New 7 Wonders of the World” – The Great Wall of China! – And The View From the Top came too! Before jumping to The Great Wall, let’s not forget the craziness yet awesomeness that is Bangkok, along with the amazing sceneries of one of Thailand’s beautiful islands; Koh Tao! The VFTT tells all…
When they talk about fashion and being alternative they mean the David Bowies, Lady Gagas, Susie Bubbles and Jeremy Scotts but when they talk about food and being alternative this is what they mean…
…And if they remade Breakfast at Tiffany’s I’m sure this multicoloured bagel would make its Hollywood debut!
Admittedly, these bagels looked rather odd at a first glance; (just like alternative fashion) for the obvious reasons of confusion (also like alternative fashion), but with that second (or fifth) look, it really is something spectacular! Its hard to tell what the baker (and fashion designer alike) was going for. Is it sweet or is it savoury? (is it cool and quirky?) Is it flavoured and artificial? Full of E numbers or super foods? (Statement making, attention seeking, or just out right fashionable and trendy?) And the underlining question; how? How did they do it? Just, how? Quite literally; “food for thought” -wouldn’t you say? (The same goes for fashion and how certain looks get pulled off? Especially the weird and “alternative” ones?)
But back to bagels, I still do not have an answer to that questions, however I can tell you that all the colourful swirls aside, it tasted like a regular plain bagel. No added flavours (to which I was happy about) and no confusion of taste nor an imprint of colour(s) left on my tongue. So all in all a pretty amazing bagel, considering it looked super cool! Far from your average bagel yet it tasted exactly like your average bagel-its a win, win! This is where my inner nerd meets my inner fatty- I mean foodie! And I love it! I mean how can you go wrong when food looks and tastes so good! (At a second glance, that is!) #FoodPorn
The best chicken and waffles I’ve tasted!
…Ok, so its the only chicken and waffles I’ve tasted -[YET], nevertheless it was a pretty good first encounter. Either it really was that good or it was the munchies talking. Oh, and the Mac’n’Cheese was also delicious; the right balance of cheesy, creamy and altogether yum!
Munchies or no munchies, if you are in Amsterdam and want some good food its worth stopping by at Cut Throat; Barber shop, bar and restaurant. Random I know, but hey thats what makes it cool!
…Back to South-East Asia I went. This time to Siem Reap, Cambodia. And The View From the Top came too…
Although I didn’t get to go to the beach, I liked Cambodia. Well, the little I saw of it anyway. Visiting for just a week, didn’t exactly give me enough time to really “see” Cambodia. However, my time spent (all in Siem Reap), was short and sweet. With friendly locals, good food, exotic fruits, interesting markets, floating villages and temple ruins that are thousands of years old; I can check Siem Reap off the list. But as always, I’ll be back!
