Simple Delights in Lamma Island

One of the most wonderful things about Hong Kong is the diversity of the landscape. If you ever tire of the steel and glass of the city, you can escape to the mountains or hop on a ferry to one of the many outlying islands.  Continue reading Simple Delights in Lamma Island

Ice Cream Tour: Vancouver

We ate a lot of ice cream in Vancouver; in fact, my travel buddy had one (or more) daily.

This is my second time going to Earnest; their London Fog is still my favourite iteration of the latte, ever. Can someone split a tub with me next time? Continue reading Ice Cream Tour: Vancouver

I love London Fog. Put London Fog in a food item, and I’ll probably try it. A lot of ice cream shops make Earl Grey ice cream, but London Fog ice cream is harder to come by. The difference lies in the creamier vanilla flavour that is not guaranteed in the Earl Grey versions.

Earnest easily makes the best London Fog ice cream (or London Fog flavoured anything) that I have ever had. Earnest, please sell your ice cream to the rest of Canada!

Kitchen Sounds: Iced Matcha Latte

I finally bit and got an external microphone for my camera, and decided to test it. Due to the recent heatwave, I made an iced matcha latte. When I reviewed the footage, I really enjoyed the sounds of the latte-making process, and decided to keep them in instead of overlaying with music.

This is not quite ASMR as I filmed this next to my fridge and there is some hum from the machinery, and the counter I was using was the glass range, so there were some sharp drops. Hope you enjoy it nonetheless!

Stay cool!

We recently participated in the Sporting Life 10K for Camp OOCH. After eating bagels and bananas on the lawn of Coronation Park, we shuffled our way back to the starting line. Seeing as we were rarely in the Mount Pleasant area, we quickly looked up brunch places and decided to try out the Homeway.
