{relationship} My way to communicate with his family for the 1st meet-up

Previously mentioned I went to Manila and join his aunt’s bday party in a beach resort, and that’s my 1st time to meet his aunt / uncle’s family (they are the bro and sis of his mom, so really important to leave a good impression!!).

Alcohol makes people happy and relax, so when I arrived, I asked if there’s any beers (I like beer very much and he knows it hehe), and then we talked while drinking, for few hours. 

We picked Red Horse, a strong beer contains 6.9% alcohol.


And then I found they are so so nice, like the typical Filipino which always brings smile, and I opened myself, even talking about my salary and if I’m ready for marriage…

Food sharing is also a good way to make a happy atmosphere, especially for food-hunter Filipino!


Showing caring is important as well, since one of uncles needed to drive and pick another uncles’ family up there and he had drunk some beer and whisky with us, that’s why I worried if he could drive properly as I also have driving license as well and I could accompany he to go so there’s someone to support. And to tell aunt “last cigarette”, and uncle “dont drink too much”.

Of course there are so many ways to have a good start with his family, just bear in mind that to use my own mind and soul to communicate with them, not a fake smile could build up relationship.

{Self} Changings after 27-year-old

1. Less hang out at night. I will rather stay at home to have a rest instead of going out for fun with friends (Yet I will watch football match at home at 2:30am…).

2. Have much time with family. Time is passing by and not gonna come back, treasure every moment with the closed one is very important (Mobile is not the VIP).

3. Have much quality life. When I could earn much money from work, I prefer to choose the most desirable to buy and eat, and to have a few mins exercise on bed before sleep.


4. Satisfied for what I got. Minimalism is classy, and then check my wardrobe and think there’s pretty much enough clothes to wear and I’m not gonna buy more now.

5. Check about the wedding-related post in instagram. What a beautiful dress and venue. My wedding will go for the simpliest! A lunch cocktail party, then a fine dinner with only our family, then in the next morning we both go to honeymoon.

6. Think about future career, then to decide if the current company could provide you any prospert. I quitted my job and will start a new one next Thursday!

matcha paradise

my sister is obsessed in matcha, she always goes to ‘little matcha girl’, a cafe in perth to enjoy her afternoon. before she came back to hk on last august, she said she would like to find matcha stuff here, which scared parents a bit lol… and under her influence, i would usually prefer matcha more, and here’s some of my record:

in hk

there is a cafe selling tea dessert, and of course matcha is famous. And my colleagues and i went there to have our dessert time:

i really love the combination of matcha / green tea with red bean! it could well balance the sweet and bitter. hope that it isn’t a late night when you read this… hahaa otherwise better to sleep now and find some matcha food in your city! and, you could search online about the different between matcha and green tea. ciao.

food tour in seoul

hey i’m back! i was busy spending my time with my lil sis who was coming back from perth (and she left today, sigh). during these 3 weeks she stayed, we went to macau and seoul. she has never been to south korea and isn’t willing to plan for travelling, so we “stucked” at the downtown in these 5 days.

since this is the 3rd time in seoul, i have to find out something i have longing for ages in seoul to make the trip special for myself, and one of these is the red bean congee where the restaurant is not near the subway station, so i have to use my broken korean to ask the locals the location. gosh i was so coward to speak korean and somehow i said “hello” to them first to let them know i was a tourist… to please them don’t use super fast and fluent korean to tell me back… anyway, i did it! and finished it hard without any red bean soup left on the bowl.

no more bullshit, tell me which dishes shown below you have tried!

breakfast: congee. best to begin with some healthy food in order to withstand the heavy taste dishes afterwards haha.

lunch: spicy ricecake, best with the instant noodle to absorb the soup (am i playing trick to myself? feeling hungry now…). don’t tell me you won’t eat ricecake in south korea, that’s… unbelievable.

SONY DSC

3:15pm tea time: matcha iceflakes, latte and roll cake. it’s from o’sulloc which is famous in tea and the company has a tea farm in jeju island, south korea. ok i admit that iceflakes is mine haha!

SONY DSC

dinner: bibimbap and soup dishes. there are always many side dishes like kimchi and seaweed and make the table full of dishes… a kind of leason of how to put them all within a table.

SONY DSC

dessert: the red bean congee. it’s warm and made by red bean, chestnut, cinnamon, and some nuts on top of it. it is introduced in one of the korean variety shows called infinite challenge (it is my favourite show), and that’s why i was willing to walk walk walk and then ask ask ask…

SONY DSC

late night food: donut. ignore what is calories and eat as many as you can (of course your stomach must have a good condition to withstand) during the travelling. krispy kreme is cross-overing with where’s wally in seoul, and the original favour is my favourite (it’s sooooo pity all the krispy kreme shops were closed down in hk, crying).

SONY DSC

the food tour is well planned, right? give me some service charge haha.
