Cliché @ Adelaide, Australia


The restaurant is just about 10-mins walk from the serviced apartment we stayed at in North Adelaide. Cool deco, excellent food, great place for groups.IMG_1234 IMG_1235 IMG_1236 IMG_1243

Warrnambool, Great Ocean Road, Australia – Dec 2015


We booked a 2-room apartment at Blue Whale Motor Inn & Apartments for our 1-night stay in Warrnambool.  It is just a few minutes drive away from the town centre.  The apartment was spacious and clean.

There are quite a lot of restaurants in town but a number of the popular ones were closed for the holidays.  We had a good meal at Piccolo Restaurant, one of the popular ones based on reviews online.

Paris 2015 – Day 5


It was our last day in Paris and my shopping day! 🙂  No crazy shopping though, not much summer items and a lot of shops are on summer vacation.

Lunch at Fauchon cafe…never go shopping with hungry husband and kids.

It was so difficult to choose, everything looked both pretty and delicious!

IMG_3190 IMG_3191 IMG_3192 These were the only sweet pastries we had.  They were good and there were actually many different things to choose from.  However….IMG_3193

…the savoury ones were even more attractive!IMG_3196 IMG_3198 IMG_3199 IMG_3201

Some kids time at the end of the day…OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

le Coq Rico @ Montmartre, Paris


Booked le Coq Rico because it has very good reviews on tripadvisor and also one of the few good restaurants that was not on summer vacation at the time.

IMG_3093 IMG_3094 IMG_3097 IMG_3098 They do not have a big menu but good enough for us to try a bit of everything.

J’AIME by Jean-Michel Lorain @ Bangkok, Thailand


This is a new French restaurant located in a new hotel.  The place is not easy to find so best to go by taxi.

Very spacious restaurant with high ceiling.  I imagine it will be very comfortable during the day as well.

There are two tasting menu, 6-course and 9-course and we went for the 9-course.

Very pretty cocktail – the middle was passion fruit ice cube.IMG_0615

IMG_0608 IMG_0609

The restaurant goes the Asian way for food sharing and they serve their dishes by placing them in the center turn table. I guess it would be more interesting if there are more people at the table.  And it soon became a bit of a nuisance when hot dishes came and the plates were hot.

Oyster – the most impressive part of this dish was actually the green leaf on the upper left side…it is called the “oyster leaf” and it actually tasted like oyster!!

Overall it was a very enjoyable meal.  Excellent ingredients and perfect cooking.  Cocktails were good.  Very value for money.  Highly recommended!
