Even though there's no Super Bowl here in Hong Kong, I still managed to over indulge this weekend. Between Australia Day parties and brunch buffets, I think its time for some fruits and vegetables. How about you?
- Aren't those jade bracelets lovely? I'm in love with the Kong's jade market. I know its not real jade, but its bursting with inexpensive baubles and bangles. I need to make another trip for a friend who's requesting bangles galore. Read all about a trip here. What's your favorite?
- Are you near New York? The Met is currently exhibiting Chinese stone carvings. Wish I could go. Maybe I'll have to hit the Hong Kong Art museum to get my fix.
- After trying my best to learn as much Cantonese and Mandarin as I can, I struggle tremendously. So it was no large surprise when I saw this language tree and Chinese and English are on opposite sides! And even though my ancestors are Hungarian that language stumps me as well!
- Last week I had the pleasure of indulging in seafood prepared by a Michelin starred chef. Afterwards, the newest Hong Kong list of Michelin starred restaurants was released. Dinner, anyone?
- I think I'm going to try this new recipe for pumpkin penne this week. Think my children will like it? I may have to puree the pumpkin so they can't see the chopped pumpkin. How do you get your kiddos to eat veggies? I must admit I have to hide the vegetables most of the time!
